I cannot believe that this is the final week of our school year. Time flies and unfortunately it is time to say goodbye to some of you as you prepare for your next chapter at secondary school. Year six, you have been incredible. Your attitude to learning and hard work has been fantastic and I hope you feel proud of everything that you have accomplished this year. You never fail to make me smile/laugh and I am so proud of you all. I will miss you all so much!
Year five- I feel extremely lucky to be your class teacher again in September. I am looking forward to hearing about your holidays and what you have been doing to keep yourself busy since March. Mostly, I am looking forward to us being back together again and starting your final year of primary school.
Over the holidays, take time to relax and enjoy yourselves safely.
Take care, keep safe and enjoy the holidays.
Keep being amazing!
Unfortunately, White Rose are not producing lessons for this last week, if you have been following this, you could have a look at some of the activities on one of these other sites as they are very good resources and may have lessons covering topics not covered through White Rose over the last few weeks.

Write a story about this picture. Try to include a range of punctuation.
Why not keep a diary over the summer holidays? It will be lovely to look back on as you start back at school in September and remember all the fantastic times you have had.
Make (someone) ecstatically happy.

Eco schools - As an eco school we have created an action plan for us to try and complete over this year. The Eco group decided as a school we should focus on three main points of action - waste, global citizenship and energy. Do you think you could have a look at the website and see if you can complete some of these actions or even just read and learn about what you could to help our environment? There is going to be a daily activity added over the next few weeks on their website.
You can send in any photographs or work about this to our school office at firstname.lastname@example.org
and we will pass on your amazing work to Mrs Cushing who runs our eco school group.
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. This may be a resource that you would like to use at home throughout the next couple of weeks.
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.
