Hello year 5 pupils! Once again you are back for another week of wonderful, online learning.
Thank you for all your kind comments about the work from last week. Our blogs have been very busy (have you made a comment yet?) and we have seen some great work. We are so proud of you for keeping up with your learning. Here are some photos from our blogs this week. There are many more and we will try to post some more but have a look and enjoy!
There is some important news about how we plan to begin telephoning children this week to catch up and to see if there is any way that the Trust can support you further.  For a full explanation of this please read Mr. Roberts news story from Saturday 2nd May.


This week The Pegasus whole school challenge will be VE Day celebrations. We would like to remember this day by making some exciting bunting. Click here to find out more and get cutting, sticking and colouring.
This week we also have  a Times Table RockstarsLocked Down Rocked Out” battle between the schools in the trust. The battle will commence Monday 4th May at 9 a.m. and finishes Sunday 10th May at 8 p.m.  All the points you earn during this week will count towards our whole school total. The winning school will be the one who has gained the most points!  So- let the battle commence- on Monday!

This week you will be writing a story using a picture as the stimulus. You have been given the story opening for you to continue. See here: Session 1 Task. Be creative and use all the ideas from stories, films and conversations that you have experienced. You will need to save what you have done today because you will use it for tomorrow’s work. I have added a Vocabulary Pack  for you to use.
This week we are going to look at how to work out a percentage of an amount. Remember a percentage is another way of showing part of a whole.Watch these videos and follow along to find percentage of amounts: percentage 1
percentage 2  Then do the questions in the downloads  below.
As well as having healthy body, we must also remember to feed our minds to have it healthy. Today, we would like you to make a Positivity Jar.
Ask family members to add positive comments to your jar as well so you can spread the joy around your home.
