Week Beginning 13.07.20

Dear Parents and Carers,

Please look at the 'Learning Summary' PDF overview of tasks we’d like children to complete at home this coming week. They can share what they are doing with us on Class Dojo. For those children coming into school, activities with the school logo beside them will be completed in school so should not be done at home in advance.

Best wishes,

The Year 5/6 Teachers


Lesson 1: To convert between seconds, minutes and hours

Lesson 2: To solve problems involving converting between hours and minutes

Times Table Rockstars: Play the 10 Soundcheck and 10 Garage games which have been set for you.

Optional: Find out more about calculating volume by working through this lesson.


Imagine that you are the owner of an unusual animal called a miptor. Your task is to write a guide for looking after this animal. Use the planning sheet and checklist on the school website to help you, then write up your guide in neat. (This activity will be completed  in school)

Spelling and Grammar (SPaG):

Grammar: Visit this website and complete the lesson, quizzes and activities which are all about using lists of three!

Spelling: At the end of the above SPaG lesson, there are some spelling words for you to practice, all using the suffix –ably.


This week’s reading comprehension is on a text called “The Moon”.

Daily reading! Remember to read something which interests you for at least 5 minutes every day. 


Visit France! For the next 2 weeks, we would like you to work on a project all about France. There is a section on the school website which contains a grid of ideas and some resources you can use. Choose from any of the activities and complete as many as you can. Read the France Powerpoint before you start. If you’ve got an idea that isn’t on the grid, feel free to do that too! Be as creative as you can! 

Music Festival: Imagine you are planning your own music festival! Work through “Topic Music Festival” Lessons 1 and 2, using the slides and sheets below. These will give you full instructions on how to plan your festival! (This activity will be completed  in school)

Pentominoes: Find out what pentominoes are, try some pentomino challenges and make some art with pentominoes! If you cannot print the pentominoes at home, try drawing your own instead. There are instructions and resources below. 

Broader curriculum: 

PE: Keep exercising with Joe Wicks! There is also an optional set of activities linked to racket sports which you can try out (see below).

Computing: Snail Race: Create a race to find the fastest snail on Purple Mash!

Science, R.E., P.S.H.E & More!:  Amazing optional tasks are detailed in the "Learning Summary" document below. The PSHE activity will be completed in school. We can't wait to see the work that you complete!
