FRI 24/4


Hi Year 5!
Thank you for keeping in contact this week and sharing your learning and fun. I have some super photos and videos that I have received and will be sharing those with you soon.
Yesterday's PE inspired some great dance, silly sports and out and about walks and rides hunting for white things laugh. Lewis TS and Jakub had some great pictures and Lewis G found 65 white things!!!

I would like to mention Lois too who shared with me a very moving letter she had written to NHS workers.

I would love to hear from everybody so if you haven't been in touch this week then please drop me an email today laugh.

> WAKE ME UP WORKOUT - live from 9am
Start your day (or workout later) with The Body Coach - Joe Wicks.

Friday Challenge Time!!

There are 5 Maths problems to solve today.

Click below to download the problems onto your screen. (it does not need to be printed).

You can do your jottings and solve them in your exercise book at the Maths end.

Below is a video with some hints and tips and answers.... but only if you need them or when you are finished! cool


As the fifth week of not being in school comes to an end, how are you finding it now? Being at home and learning is very different. How have you spent your time? How is everybody feeling? What is your routine like now?

I would like you to:

Write a 'Dear Diary' entry in your Exercise Book at the English end dated 24/4/20. Tell the diary about what you miss most about the time before this started and what you are most looking forward to when this is all over. What is the hardest thing about this time for you? What is one thing new that you and your family do now that you rarely did before? Maybe you could illustrate it too. As I have said before....this book/diary will be amazing to look back on when you are grown-ups and you share this unusual time in history with your family and friends. Your entries so far have been very very thoughtful - well done.


So...this is new will teach you some new vocabulary too!

I have 3 problem solving missions for you to solve.... are you a thinker?

This week we get Mission 1 - Colourful Kits

I know what clever heads we have in year 5.... good luck! You can do it!

> SCIENCE - oreo time!
Before you begin this work why not enjoy another wonderful story read by a real astronaut from the Space Station out in Space!

Yesterday we visited the Moon with Neil Armstrong... the first human to set foot on the Moon.


  • What is the Moon?
  • Is the Moon a planet?
  • Where does the Moon go during the day?
  • Why is the Moon sometimes round and sometimes shaped like a banana?!
  • Is the Moon really made of cheese?

Chat to someone about these questions....what do you think?

Well of course it's not made of cheese! It's made of rock and dust.

The Moon is NOT a planet: a planet goes around a star (like the Sun). A moon goes around a planet. Earth has one moon that goes around is called the Moon! Other planets have their own moons... some have lots of moons.

Because the Earth rotates and the Moon is orbiting the Earth at the same time our view of the Moon changes. Sometimes we see the whole of the Moon and other times we see part of the Moon. This is why its shape appears differently. The Moon does not shine its own light. The light we see from the Moon at night is just where the Sun is shining on it from behind the Earth!

Watch both videos below:

Did you think, like I did, that the phases (shapes) of the Moon look like Oreos???

It's time to get the Oreos out!


Can you nibble your Oreos to create the phases of the Moon?
Underneath the example photos below is a set of instructions and some tips to help you. Look at some examples below. I would love to see a photo of your Phases of the Moon 'display'.

We can continue to enjoy another story written and read by David Walliams. Find somewhere to relax comfortably and enjoy...
Is David Walliams not to your taste? indecision
If not, then visit our audio library where you can listen to books such as Harry Potter and a whole library of books and stories! Find somewhere below and then choose a story to listen to.
