I hope you are all well and have enjoyed the half term break. We have been very lucky with the weather and I hope that you were all able to get outside and enjoy the sun.
Rather than start our new topic, I thought it would be fun to do a Science week. Over the next five days I will be adding a new science investigation for you to try. I have tried to choose a range of investigations and I have tried to choose activities that have a limited amount of equipment. Some of the activities may need an adults support, but mostly you should be able to work independently. Please do not worry if you do not have some of the equipment at home. You could try something different and create your own activity. I would love to see pictures and hear how your investigations have gone.
I will continue to add Maths activities and English activities on here for you to try as well as on Purple Mash. Please remember to do your best and not put any pressure on yourself. If you have any questions or need any help please email the school office account and I will respond as quickly as I can.
Keep being amazing- I am so proud of you all and missing you so much.

Before half term you were all sent your log in details for the website Active Learn. Each child has an account where they can access books at their current book band level. Please use this website to choose a book and read it this week (some texts may be long and therefore will not be expected to be read fully this week).
Let me know which book you decided to read. Can you write a book review about it?
If you are needing your log in details resent please let me know.

Similar to White Rose Maths, Oak National Academy have designed an online classroom where they are uploading a range of lessons each week tailored towards the year 5 and 6 curriculum. These include 5 English and Maths lessons and a range of foundation subjects including Science, History and Modern Foreign Languages.

Grimm & Co are in the process of launching a range of writing activities for children to take part in during the home learning period. These writing sessions will range from short-burst weekly writing exercises to longer writing projects. They will also be providing activities and step-by-step instructions as well as videos to help the children complete the tasks. They will be adding different activities each week. The website below will take you directly to their website.
This website is aimed at Year 5 children, giving them daily grammar activities to complete based on animals. There is a video for each activity for the children to watch and a range of activities to complete. This may also be a good website for Year 6 children to use to recap on previous learning.
There is also a Home Learning section of the website that is specific for different year groups. Each year group is given an animal of focus and are asked to watch a video before completing a written task.
Natre is a website where you will find free resources and activities to complete during this home learning period. It covers a range of aspects relating to Religious Education and has lots of fun activities for the children to do.
