What a wonderful week it has been!


It has been exceptionally seasonal this week with the snow, Carol Service and pantomime. Even our learning this week has been seasonal with the theme of Monty the penguin.

You can watch it here: https://www.literacyshed.com/montythepenguin.html

The children made their own comprehension questions about the TV advert before writing in role as the little boy or Monty. Finally the children made posters about how best to care for Monty.


In maths, the children have been learning about adding and subtracting fractions.


Homework was sent today with the addition of a link to a Padlet page. Over the holidays we would like the children to write a short entry about a memory, event or feelings.

To do this, you’ll need to download the free QRcode reader and the free padlet app which are both easily downloaded on a mobile device from the App or Play store.

Once downloaded, use the QRcode reader to scan the code on the homework sheet. This will take you directly to the Year 5 padlet page. For safety, all posts be will moderated before appearing live on the page and only Year 5 students will be able to access and view the page with the password printed on the homework letter.
