Year 5

Week Starting 20 April 2020

Good morning Year 5 and it’s good to be ‘back’ at school! Mr. St Aimee, Mrs. Rose, Mr. Sawh, Mr. Kelly, Ms. Sewell, Ms. Dyges, Ms. Sunday, Ms. Fernandes and myself (Ms. Tamby) would all like to welcome you back and, even though life is a bit different, we hope to support you in your learning at home in the best way we can.  We hope you have had time to complete some of the activities on our Easter project?

Below, you will find your work for the rest of the week.  Remember to try as many activities as you can and tell us what you think by responding on our Year 5 ‘blog page’. In English, we are looking at a narrative poem – ‘The Highwayman’ and in maths, we will be learning a bit more about decimals. In additional to this, we will cover a few other topics like Art, DT and of course PE.  We are trying to cover as much of our normal learning as possible.

Ms. Tamby


Our first activity this week is to think about the impressions that we may have about Highwaymen – from movies, reading etc.  Please read and complete the questions in the ‘Highwayman Tell Me Grid’

Although we have have not done much work in Year 5 on decimals we know that you have worked on it in previous years in school so we will start gently.  Please look at our ‘Introduction to decimals’ and complete the online activities there.
