FRI 27/3

I am going to start today by sharing a wonderful message to us all I received yesterday:

I know that lots of you made the most of the sunshine yesterday and are spending some quality time with your family and that is really important smiley

There was, as usual, lots of incredible learning going on - well done!
One of the things some of you looked at yesterday was the work of the artist Lowry. This inspired you to produce some incredible artwork. Look at some of the ones I have received pictures of below:

Lowry by Y5

I know too that lots of you tried the various PE options I linked to and I received emails telling me that they loved Banana Banana Meatball, Yoga and Creating your Own PE Course. Below are pictures Lewis and Ethan sent me of their PE and a video of Liam's amazing PE challenge!

Today is Fabulous Friday. It marks the end of our first ever week of home learning and it's been amazing. Thank you.

Each Friday will have a different feel to it and will have some exciting new bits of learning you can get involved in as well as some regular bits and pieces smiley

You have 5 minutes to find the numbers:  0,  1,  1.5,  6,  16,  20 and 100 written somewhere in your house. Phones, keyboards and books do NOT count!

Get a grown-up to time you....or use the 5 minute timer below!


In your folder find the sheets Subtraction practice Sheet 1 and Subtraction practice Sheet 2

In your exercise book at the Maths end please complete:


a) Sheet 1 or

b) Sheet 2 or

c) Sheet 1 and Sheet 2

Please try the challenges too.



1. Column methods will be required - watch my tip video from yesterday if you need a reminder how to do it.

2. Some of the word problems have more than one step.....


Ask a grown-up to check or mark yourself using the answers below:


As the first week of school being 'closed' comes to an end, how are you finding it? Being at home and learning is very different. How have you spent your time? How is everybody feeling? What is your routine like?

If possible I would like you to do two things:

1) Write a 'Dear Diary' entry in your Exercise Book at the English end dated 27/3/20. Tell the diary about this week and your thoughts about what is going on in the world. As I said earlier this week....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.

2) Please email me with a short weekly review to let me know what you are up to. I would love to hear from everyone. If you have any thoughts on the learning you've been doing you can let me know those too. Thank you.smiley


I know that you and your families are a creative bunch and that you will have been doing/are planning to do some fun things whilst we are all safely tucked up in our homes.

To help us all get through the next few days and weeks I would like to compile (put together) a list of fun and cool things to do to pass the time.

One of the things that inspired me was this list from the National Trust of 50 things to do before you are 11 3/4 .

Have a look at the list below. How many have you already done? How many could you do in your own home and garden? Will you complete them all before you leave primary school? Make a note of what you could do in the next week or so.

I then came across these brilliant lists of things to do inside and away from our screens.

Take a look at these lists - which ones could you try out? smiley

I would like super creative Year 5 ideas about what should go on our 'LIVELY LOCK-DOWN LIST'. We will not let this virus dampen our spirits so let's make a '50 things to do when you are locked in your house and garden' list. What cool, crafty, clever, fun, daft, crazy ideas do you have for inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs, in the sun, in the rain, in the light, in the dark.....?

Write your ideas down and send me a pic of your writing/drawing or write your ideas in an email. Make sure you give your ideas Funky Titles and clear instructions. I will compile all our ideas into a poster we can share. #livelylockdownlist


Looking at the weather forecast today it might be our last sunny day for a while so LET'S MAKE THE MOST OF IT AND GET OUTSIDE laugh.

I saw on Social Media a challenge Wigston Academy dance students are doing....they are trying to photograph an amazing shadow they create. See this picture from one of their students:

So...what amazing, funny, creative shadow can you create against a wall or on the ground, with your body, other people or using props? Can you get a photograph of it and send it to me to share? Can't wait to see smiley


TOP TIP: Shadows will be longer a little later in the afternoon as the Earth turns away from the Sun.


Find somewhere quiet to relax: you could even sit in the garden, and listen to 'Trish the Troll' written by, and read by David Walliams.

Sometime before you go to bed find 10-15 minutes to read a book...somewhere quiet. Record it in your orange Reading Diary.

Looking for some additional things to do?
1) Use the online links on The Year 5 Class page: You know Times Table Rockstars but how about checking out Numbots.....or level up and ask me for a log in to Sumdog....this is a Maths, Reading and Spelling adventure!?
