Week beginning 6th July


Hello Welbeck,


I hope that you are all safe and well. 


Thank you for all of your hard work over the last couple of weeks on Purple Mash and thank you for the photos that you are sending me of your incredible work. This week is R.E week. Take a look at the exciting activities we have created. 


This week I have set some tasks for you to complete on Active Learn. These include science activities and grammar and spelling activities. A range of books are also available on the website. Passwords were sent out a couple of weeks ago over Marvellous Me but please email me if you need a reminder. 


I know that lots of you have been practising the songs for the Acorn Theatre video. Remember the videos are due in on the 8th July. I am looking forward to watching the video that is created. 


Also, take a look at Mrs Green's entry to the Clever Crafts competition isn't it fantastic? You still have time to enter the competition. I know that we have lots of children who enjoy art in Welbeck Class, so I am sure you can create some incredible pieces of work. 


Finally, I know lots of Year 6's are preparing for their move up to secondary school. I have updated the transition page on our class page with extra information that I have received from Portland. Portland are holding virtual taster lessons over the month of July to help you understand what learning is like in secondary school. Hopefully, you will find this helpful. Please let me know if you would like any extra information and I will try my best to find out for you.


Again, thank you for all of your hard work. I am missing you all so much!


Take care,


Miss Tomlinson 


R.E Week Activities

You can hear scratching noises coming from a cupboard in your house. You have never noticed this cupboard before. The noise won’t stop. What happens?

Think about:

  • What is in the cupboard?
  • Where did the cupboard come from?
  • What are you going to do to stop the noises?


Try to use a range of punctuation and grammar techniques.

Reading Challenge


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.


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.

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 Opportunities


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. 



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.



R.E. Resources


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.
