Week Beginning 27.04.20

Work expectations and deadlines

Dear Parents and Pupils

Well-being of our school community is very important at this time and the whole phase team has been extremely impressed with the work our pupils have completed and posted to Dojo; it really has been a pleasure watching what they have all been doing.

We have attached a weekly timetable but this is only an example and we certainly wouldn't expect you all to stick to this. By the end of the week we would expect pupils to have completed the literacy (writing and reading), maths tasks, a spelling activity using the words we have given (any activity where words are being learnt-your choice), SPaG and any number of other activities that you have time to complete.

Please be assured that there is no expectation that every task be completed that we have set on the website-they are just suggestions. 

We would ask that any work completed, which you would like to post to Dojo, be done by Friday, 2pm. This then gives the team time to access Dojo and hand out certificates and stickers to those pupils, for that week.

With many thanks,

The Year 5/6 Team


See the Y6 Maths wc 27.04.20 Lesson 1 and 2 documents below for this week's maths lessons. 

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


Look at the five writing activities in the "Writing task 1" document below. Perhaps you could do one activity per day?

Spelling and Grammar (SpAG):

Spelling: Practise 10 of the statutory spelling words for your year group (See the 'Year 5 and 6 Statutory spellings' document below).

Grammar: Look through the slides on the "SpAG Modal verbs Slides" document. Then complete the worksheet- you can choose to complete the 1-star, 2-star or 3-star activity.


 This week’s reading comprehension activity, all about Alan Turing, can be found in the "Reading Comprehension Alan Turing" document. 

Please complete the 1-star, 2-star or 3-star activity - whichever you feel is most appropriate. Our suggestion would be that Year 5 pupils try the 2-star task and Year 6 pupils complete the 3-star task.

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

Broader curriculum: 

PE: There are some sheets with yoga poses on the school website. Have a go at these, or create your own routine.

Computing: Purple Mash (2code). Look in your 2do's. This week's coding task is called 'Bubbles.'  

Science, PSHE, Topic and RE: Amazing optional tasks are detailed in the "Weekly Work Summary" document below. We can't wait to see the work that you complete! 

Extra fun learning:
  • The 100 Challenge Ideas for Home Learners book (see below) has LOADS of brilliant Maths, Literacy and cross-curricular activities in there which will boost your learning and boost your fun! Can you complete 2 challenges from here per week? Send a photo on your Class Dojo portfolio...
  • Please also have a look at the 'Weekly Work Summary Y5 and Y6 wc 27.04.20" document. There are LOADS of fun and useful 'Optional' activities for you to enjoy on there. Don't forget to share your wonderful work  on your Class Dojo Portfolio!
