We have had a great start back to the home learning and many children have engaged with the activities set. I would like to see everyone engaging in one way or another by the end of the week if possible.
We had our first class Google Meet session on Monday and I was so proud of all of the children. It was lovely to see their faces and the responses I have received from both children and parents have been overwhelming. I will be hosting another class session today @ 11am. Again, to join the children need to click on the link at the top of the 6J Google Classroom home page. We had 16 children join us on Monday – lets see if we can get even more today!
Wednesday’s tasks or previous tasks due today are:
- Diary first draft
- Maths tasks
- French – colours
- Why do we have blood
- Picture of window art ‘Space themed’
- PE with Joe (assignment will appear @11:30am)
The children have already been working on some of these tasks over the past few days and today is the day they are due. The tasks in bold and underlined are new tasks set for today.
Tasks for Thursday are:
- Mindfulness session
- PE with Joe
- Maths task
- Story writing task (Due Friday)
Thank you to everyone who has managed to upload pictures to Google Classroom, it makes it much easier for me to keep track. Here is a video to help if you are still finding it a little tricky.
BBC bitesize have started publishing various daily lessons from Monday of this week. They do not all match with the Google Classroom assignments, but they offer further resources if you need them or a opportunity for some independent learning. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-lessons/1
Also don’t forget the use of our online resources:
- Spelling Shed
- TT Rockstars
Keep smiling and enjoy the sunshine!
P.s – Here is one of my favourite memories from Year 5. You have all grown so much!

I hope that you have all had an enjoyable Easter and are well rested ready for your online learning. I had a lovely Easter and spent some time in the garden enjoying the sunshine! It is suppose to be beautiful again this week so hopefully we can enjoy a little more.
Here is a little something to make you smile 🙂
You should have either collected or received a pack of Maths resources in the post, this is where you need to complete future Maths activities. It would be really useful if you could upload a picture of your answer sheet to the Google classroom once you are done and press hand in. This will help me keep track of you work and support you where needed. Taking pictures of work done on paper might be best achieved using a Google Classroom app on a phone or tablet.
Today’s activities are:
- Draw with Rob – Nancy (Due 21st)
- Diary writing (Due Wednesday 22nd)
- Maths – Week 2 Lesson 1 Scale Factors (Due today)
- Coding activity (Due 21st)
Please let me know if you have any problems with this. I am also going to be holding a Google Meet session today at 11am. To join you need to click on the link at the top of the Google Classroom page. Hopefully see you at 11.

Good morning 6J,

Four new assignments will be posted on Google Classroom today:

Tomorrow, two more assignments will be posted:

At school yesterday, we started making sock monkeys. This was really fun and all we needed was an old pair of socks, a needle and thread and something to stuff the monkeys with (we used out-of-date bandages!). If you’d like to have a go at doing this, use the template and the link below to find out how!
Have a great day everyone!

This week has been rather unusual as we are faced with uncertain and unprecedented times. The children in 6J have been an asset to the school and have worked exceptionally hard with their online tasks. I am very proud of you all. Here are some snip-its of what we have been doing.
Short story writing. Here are some paragraphs taken from children’s writing.
As he walked further across the glistening magic dust, a glowing light cascaded over the lands like a frosted wave fading away. “Symbols,” the boy read out. The earth-like orb hovered glinting in the wild wind and the curious boy stretched for his creased leather bag. Jackson brought out a bottle of putrid liquid allowing it to air before he dropped it over the symbol- led ancient ring. Serena
Jackson, who was cold and afraid, ambled towards the extensive mountain which towered over his frail body. The gusty wind tickled his pale-white face as he looked behind and longed for home. A shrill cry echoed in the mist.“Help, please,” called a soft voice. Jackson raced over to the cliff and saw a small young boy reaching up to him. “ Who are you? What do you need?” blurted Jackson. Anju
Suddenly, a burst of light cascaded over the land, nearly blinding him before he had no other option but to flinch. Although the light was beaming in his eyes like he was right next to the sun, he kept on edging closer to the utterly magnificent orb as he was on a mission to save his beloved planet. Srihan
Well done to all children who submitted this work!
There isn’t a lot for me to say here other than ‘Wow!’
The children watched short clips teaching them how to draw a sausage dog. As you can see there are some fabulous pieces. The children were also shown a picture of an egg and asked to think about what could be living inside waiting to emerge – I wouldn’t want to meet most of these on my own!
Well done this week 6J – it has been lovely to see you all chatting and engaging online. I am looking forward to seeing you continue to work hard next week on the exciting tasks I have planned for you.
Stay safe and have a fantastic weekend,
