Class 5- Spring Term 2021


World Book Day


Next Thursday (4th March) is World Book Day. We will be completing a range of activities on different books throughout the week. 

The link above will take you to live sessions with a variety of authors at 10.30 on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 


Explore the website further to access free audiobooks, author masterclasses and view recommended reads!


We have two more weeks of home learning before we welcome you back on 8th March!

Complete as much of the work on Seesaw as you can. Most of it can be completed online using a computer or tablet but be creative too - you can complete work on paper then photograph it and upload it. Do some of your writing on paper too and photograph that. Keep practising and using your skills. If you have a question, ask it and we'll get back to you.

Our temporary home

As you probably know, we are now in our temporary accomodation on Moderna Industrial estate. But class 5 continue to work hard and make excellent progress! Our literacy text, Pax has stimulated a lot of discussion and brought up a number of philosophical and ethical issues.

Our current topic is Rainforests and children have learned about the diffferent layers from the forest floor to the emergent layer.

We have also continued our work on forces in science including gravity and Sir Isaac Newton. This week we have looked at the effect of friction in the world around us and what life would be like without friction.


This PAX inspired artwork was created for homework!
