Home Learning – w/c 29.6.2020

If you are working at home, please do continue to send work in for us to see. We really enjoy seeing how much you are achieving and are so impressed with your work ethic. India’s Greek Shield (which is above) will take some beating!


Year 5 – Please do not use the Gadgets booklet. You will use this in school Wednesday and Thursday; you can then continue with it on Friday. I would suggest that you do the reading comprehension one day and on the next day do the spelling and grammar work (5 pages each).

Reading comprehension – choose your own level.

Mrs Hall’s Maths Group

I hope you enjoyed algebra last week because we are continuing with it this week. Do lessons 1 and 2 at home and lessons 3 and 4 will be tackled in school. Remember the sheets get harder as you go along. If you get stuck, let me or your teacher in school know. Don’t forget the Friday Challenge!


Mrs Wheat’s Maths Group

It’s Ratio this week. You’re going to love it!


Mrs Mitchell’s Maths Group

Please follow the same work as Mrs Wheat’s maths group but if you find this too hard, please let me know! Set yourself a time limit of forty five minutes and don’t get stressed if you can’t answer all the questions on the sheet. Some of them are very hard. Good luck!

History (Year 5 save this for school please)

In this session, you will be learning all about The Battle of Marathon and some of the differences between the Athenians and the Spartans. Which would you prefer to be? Work your way through the powerpoint and tackle the Activity sheets when they come up.

For the final task, you can choose to be either an Athenian or a Spartan. You can then write a blog or a recount about the Battle of Marathon. Remember to stay in character.


Now that the weather has warmed up once again and we have experienced a few thunderstorms recently I think it is about time we understand what causes this extreme weather.
Work your way through the PowerPoint  ‘How Thunderstorms Happen’. 

Use it to complete the ‘How Thunderstorms Happen’ worksheet.  You will need to refer back to the PowerPoint which will help you label the diagram.  Not got a printer.  Don’t worry.  You can either write a short description of how a thunderstorm happens or you could draw a diagram of your very own.

Here is a link to a video that you might also find useful as it helps to explain the process: 

Year 6 PHSE

Session 5 – Lost but not lost. Help prepare yourself for secondary school in this session.

Year 5 & 6 PHSE

Watch the introduction to this week’s session then read through the Content poster and start the worksheet. How many of the activities can you complete? Finally, watch the summary video.


How much of this vocabulary can you remember? It’s really useful to know the words for food and drink when you visit France – yummy things to try: crepe, pain au chocolat, croissant, gauffre, Croque Monsieur, escargot …. hmmmmm.


The French are well known for their fashion. Can you learn some new words here?



Linking to the science topic Properties of Materials, and reminding us of our trip to Cadbury World, we would like you to investigate and answer the question,

“Do different types of chocolate melt at different temperatures?”

You will need to design your experiment ensuring that it is fair, predict what you think will happen, conduct the experiment and then decide how to present your results. What explanation do you have for the results? How reliable are they? 


This week we would like you to explore the work of Bridget Riley and have a go at making your own. It’s quite straight forward and you get a dramatic end result. If you don’t have a plant pot, you could practice creating similar effects on paper. 


This also looks like great fun! (Year 5 save this as you may do it in school Weds or Thurs. We quite like the look of the self-portrait task.)



Why not use the website below for a fun ‘compete against yourself’ approach to physical activity with a focus on resilience and perseverance and the aim to achieve bronze, silver or gold medal targets. There are a range of activity cards and videos and you can also download a tracking sheet to record your progress.
