Citius, Altius, Fortius
Big Question: What will be your legacy?
Welcome to the Summer term!
Welcome back, everyone! We hope you had a restful break, and enjoyed some time doing lovely things with friends and family (and enjoying some chocolate, of course!) We are feeling refreshed and well rested, and are raring to go with this exciting summer term! You have already been impressing us this week, and have clearly returned to school with your trademark work ethic, respectful behaviour and impeccable manners.
Our theme this term is Citius, Altius, Fortius and our Big Question is ‘What will be your legacy?’ Our theme focuses on Ancient Greece, and we will be studying many aspects of what life was like in Ancient Greece. From politics to sport, medicine to art, we will find out just how many aspects of life as we know it have been influenced by Ancient Greek achievements and discoveries.

Home learning 18.2.22
As you know, school will be closed today (18th February) due to the storm. Below you will find some home learning tasks for you to work through today. Please complete what you can.
Maths lesson 18/2/22
This lesson builds on the learning we did yesterday. Yesterday we looked at dividing 4 digit numbers, where there were no remainders. Today we continue with the same method, but there will be remainders.
If you were working on dividing 2 or 3 digit numbers yesterday, have a go at the dividing by 3 digit number task today.
If you would like an extra task to do, I have included a division problem solving task. Have a go at that IN ADDITION to the main task if you want to. This is an optional extra.
Writing lesson 18/2/22
For your writing home learning task, I would like you to watch the video all about parenthesis and read through the information. Please have a go at activities one and two on the webpage attached.
Once you have accessed the website and completed the 2 activities, choose your level for the writing task (level 1 is the eaisest option, level 4 is the most complex). There are instructions at the start of each page, but essentially you have to edit the sentences to include parenthesis. Level 1 gives a suggestion for what to include within the parentheses.
If you would like an additional task, can you write a short story including parenthesis?
Geography lesson 18/2/22
Your geography home learning task is to learn about biomes of the world. Have a look through the powerpoint, and then the biome fact files which are attached.
Once you have read through the information, create a google slides presentation to summarise the biomes of the world.
Additional geography lessons 18/2/22
This material is only to be accessed after you have completed the first geography lesson set today.
If you would like some additional work to complete, follow the link and access any of the lessons which are all related to biomes of the world. Can you find out any new facts?
Happy New Year! Welcome to 2022.

Merry Christmas, everyone!
SHHH... The Walls Have Ears
We welcome back our new Year 5 class to an exciting term
ahead, focused around our World War 2 Topic theme.
Friday 16th November- World War 2 Day
Wow! What a fun day, filled with exciting, hands on learning opportunities! We were having so much fun with our action packed day, that I only managed to get a few photos, but I'm sure Year 5 will be happy to talk to you about what wehave been up to.
Year 5 even managed to perform a Lindy Hop extravaganza for Year 6, after only 4 weeks of lessons! It was spectacular!
History field-trip to The Box.
Homework task- 12.11.21
This week we have been learning about relative clauses. Your homework task is to follow the link below, watch the video and complete the short quiz (5 questions).
You then have to rewrite the sentences, including a relative clause in each one. There are 16 sentences to choose from, you must complete at least 10. You may complete all 16 if you would like to.
Remember, each relative clause will start with a relative pronoun: who, which, that, when, where, whose, whom.
Please write the sentences either on a Google docs, or in your homework book.
Homework task- 5.11.21
In dance this week we have started learning the Lindy Hop, and I have been very impressed by your enthusiasm! This week your homework is to watch the videos attached, and see if you can have a go at any of the moves with a friend or family member.
There is nothing for you to submit or hand in, but I would love to hear about how you get on!
