Hello Year 5!
Week 2 of Home Learning.
I'm going to put some suggestions here each week for you to try.
If you have finished your Home Learning Class Pack, I recommend you having a go at:
The Body Coach PE lesson from 9.00-9.30 each day.
Maths: Complete the daily lesson from the White Rose maths scheme (the link is below).
Writing: There are a range of KS2 writing challenges on the link below. The 'Take a Stand' challenge looks interesting!
Reading: I have attached below a range of reading comprehensions for you to complete at your leisure. If you have finished your current book, there is a link to Scholastic below which has access to magasines & extracts to read along with some activities to match.
I am also adding some new activities to this page each week for you to try- do keep coming back to visit our page and see what is new!

Year 5 working from home.
Year 5 Historic England project.
The children in Year 5 have been lucky to take part in a Historic England project this week. Over two day they have studied images from the John Laing construction of the new Coventry Cathedral. Ashley and Martin led the sessions on historical study skills.They also visited the Cathedral with two ex-employees of Laing and interviewed them, looked at photos and shared stories. This was all captured by film by professional film-makers who are producing a 3 minute film of the children's experiences. Everyone reported on 'How well-mannered, nice, kind and thoughtful' our children were, which was lovely to hear. Thank you to Mrs McDevitt and Miss Howes for organising the days and making sure everything ran smoothly.
Is it ever right to fight?
Year 5 enjoyed a debate on Friday about whether it was right to fight, linking it back to our topic in Theme of World War 2. There was very good points for, for and against. When it came to vote on what they agreed with, it was dead heat... 16 for and against!
As we have now finished Harry Potter, year 5 have now started a new book in English called 'Goodnight Mister Tom'. We are linking it to our World War 2 topic in theme. Today they got the chance to look at some of the things, young children during the war, would of had in their suitcase.
Year 5 in Science and phases in the moon.
In science yesterday, the children learnt about the movements and the phases of the moon. They showed their understanding by using Oreo cookies. The Oreos showed the phases of the moon. They enjoyed this lesson very much, especially when they got to eat the biscuits.
Year 5 visit to Harry Potter!
The children and the staff had a magical time at Harry Potter studios on Thursday. It was extra special as the studio was dressed up for Christmas. Highlights included, the Gryffindor common room, the potions classroom, Hogwarts express, the Forbidden Forest, Gringotts bank, Diagon alley and Privet drive. The children also took part in an English lesson, where they got to see some actual props from the movie. They were given tips on how to make a good story. The children were well behaved and really enjoyed the trip.
Year 5 have been working on The Victorians this term in Theme. To round off the unit, they gathered all their information up, that they have learnt, and in groups, presented it to the class. The researched about the coal mines, school life, working life and transport, and also how have things changed and what laws were put in place.
Year 5's Advent inspire workshop.
Year 5 enjoyed their 'Advent Inspire workshop' this morning. They were reflecting on the coming of Jesus by doing activities that included, making Bambinelli's, prayers, bible journals. Thank you to all the parents that came, hope you equally enjoyed it.
Year 5 made gorgeous Bambinelli's this week, ready to be blessed at Mass on Friday morning.
Year 5 at the cinema to see the 'Addams Family'.
Year 5 had a fabulous day at the old town museum in Blists Hill. They dressed up as Victorian children and went to school. They also explored the old town and even got to go into some shops to purchase goods with pennies and farthings! They also learnt how to make candles and got to dip some candles of their own. They all came to the conclusion that we are very lucky to live in the time that we do, with all the living luxuries that we have. Thank you Mrs McDevitt, Miss Howes and Mr Checkley.
Year 5 are enjoying a 'Drop everything and read' session to start our afternoon off in a peaceful way.
Best way to start to afternoon!
