We will be setting a piece of English, maths and topic piece each day. English and topic will be set on Purple Mash. Maths will be set using White Rose and ask that work is sent through Seesaw. All of the links and documents will be linked below. Please make sure that you check this page every week to see what has been set. We will be marking and responding to work sent to us, however this will only happen during school hours. Work sent later than 3:30pm will be checked and marked the following day.

 If your child is struggling to login or having any difficulties, please email the class emails telling us the issue and what device you are trying to use it on. If we do have to use Purple Mash for home learning, please remember all the lessons we did on online safety in September to make sure you are safe when using the internet.

Wednesday 3rd March 2021 Anglo-Saxon Art

This week, we are going to start looking at our new topic of Anglo-Saxons.

Today, we want you to design or create an Anglo-Saxon shield. You can design it on a piece of paper or if you have any cardboard laying around, you can create one out of that (this could be using delivery boxes or even cereal boxes. Look at the powerpoint first, which has lots of images of Anglo-Saxon shields. The task set is explained on the fourth slide.

Powerpoint: Anglo-Saxon Shields

Please take a photo of your work and then upload to Seesaw.

A topic will be set on Purple Mash that coincides with what we would have been studying in class. Our topic this term is ‘Travelling through Time’ focusing on the Ancient Greeks. Each afternoon there will be  a different subject including science, music, RE, RSHE, art and creative curriculum. Also it is important that we still keep exercising. Jo Wicks is carrying on with his PE lessons on YouTube plus if the weather is suitable, you could go on a bike ride or a walk.

If you would like to improve your music skills while at home and you have an iPad or other apple device, have you downloaded the Garageband app?  On this app you can use a range of instruments to compose your very own tracks. I wonder how creative you can be? Once you have created a track, why not download them and send them to your class email address.

Year 5 – General Information

Welcome to Year 5!

There are two classes in Year 5:

The Georgians – Mrs Wilson & Mrs Martin

The Stuarts – Mr Moss

We are supported by Mrs Calver and Mrs Adams.


This week as writers, we will be looking at Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy.


Spelling tests take place every Tuesday. New spellings are handed out on the same day.

Common Exception Words Year 5/6


Winter is upon us. Please make sure you send your child to school with a coat for playtime and lunchtime. 

As the weather is getting colder please make sure the children bring an appropriate PE kit into school. Some of the PE sessions will take place outside so tracksuit bottoms and a PE jumper would be a good addition to the children’s PE bag.

If your child takes part in any lunchtime clubs please make sure they have a kit to change into.



Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday.

Children receive Maths and English homework.

Maths homework is currently being set on My Maths. Please remember to keep your login in a safe place so you do not lose it!


Reading Challenge

Please remember to take part in our weekly reading challenge. Reading challenges are collected by the class teacher every Monday morning. It is really easy to complete! All you need to do is read for five minutes, five times a week and record in on your reading challenge.

Remember Mrs Ashford draws a reading challenge slip every week and the winner wins a book! Let’s see if we can get 100% to complete the reading challenge in 5S and 5G.


Week beginning 04/1/2021

Mr Moss’ set are learning long division.

Mrs Wilson’s set are learning about factors, multiples and prime numbers.

Please remember to continue to practice times tables with your child at home. They will bring their ‘Rockstar Maths’ sheets home with them for practice.


Below are some links that you might find useful to use at home:




Creative Curriculum

This term, our topic will be ‘Travelling through Time.’

For the first half of the term, we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks. We will begin our learning by looking at what life is like in modern Greece now and comparing it to how people lived in Ancient Greece.
