Week beginning 20th April

Hello Welbeck,


I hope that you and your family are well and that you have had a lovely Easter holiday. I can see that lots of you have been using Purple Mash and Times Tables Rockstars regularly and are producing some fantastic work. 


Over the next couple of weeks we are going to continue learning about the Ancient Greeks. I have uploaded a new topic web of ideas for you to complete over the next two weeks. I will also keep updating the school website and Purple Mash with other activities for you to try.


It has been lovely to see photos of some of the excellent pieces of work you have been completing at home. I have been adding some of the photos onto the gallery section of the school website. Please keep emailing your photos to the school office email address- I am enjoying seeing them. 


Keep being amazing- I am very proud of you all and I am missing you lots. 


Take care,


Miss Tomlinson

Ancient Greek Topic Ideas- 20th April- 4th May

White Rose Maths


White Rose Hub have created a home learning section which includes 5 maths lessons. The children can watch the 5 minute video explaining the task and then complete the work sheet. They are providing 5 lessons per week which follows the curriculum.

St. George's Day- 23rd April 2020


Happy St. George's Day! Below I have attached the web link for the video of the story of St. George and The Dragon. St. George was known for his bravery in defeating the dragon to save a beautiful lady.

What have you done that has been brave? Watch the video link and then complete one of the following activities:

- Create an information leaflet/ poster/ PowerPoint about St. George's Day

- Design the St. George's flag

- Complete the reading comprehension 

Natural Curriculum


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.


Additional to writing activities, the website provides links to the National Geographic Kids website where the children can follow links to learn about science, geography and history. 

Oak National Academy


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.  This may be a resource that you would like to use at home throughout the next couple of weeks.

Writing Challenge 


Watch the Ancient Greek Mythology, Theseus and the Minotaur, ( ) and try one or more of the following activities:


  • Write a description about one of the characters from the story
  • Re-write the story in your own words
  • Create a cartoon strip of the story
  • Write a new ending for the story
  • Write a newspaper article about the event


Remember to include all of the writing features expected for year 5 and year 6 children. You may also choose to include drawings in your work. 

Challenge- Can you include our word of the week in your writing?


Don't forget you can send your work to the school office for me to add it to the school website.
