Hello Year 5,


You have worked so hard at home! We can't wait to see you all back at school on Wednesday and it has been amazing to see all of your work coming in and seeing your challenges being completed. We have 2 more days working from home and then we will be back (ready for the fun bits at the end of term).


Don't forget to keep emailing us


See you soon

Today's challenge is to hoover the whole house. I know some of you know how to use the hoover and that is amazing but you still need to join in. Have fun!!!!

Today we are looking at area. Area is the size of the inside of a shape. It is measured in squares so we use the squared sign 2. 

If you calculate the area of a rectangle or square, you multiply the long side by the short side - ONLY 2 SIDES

2cm x 6cm = 12cm2


Have a look at the video below and complete pages 50 and 51 of your maths book.

Reading - Read a book of your choice for 30 mins.




Today you are writing the dilemma and resolution of your narrative.


What to include in your dilemma: - 

  • What goes wrong?
  • Fronted adverbial
  • Short and long sentences
  • Check that your sentences make sense
  • Dialogue - this has to be between 2 characters. Remember new speaker, new line. Inverted commas go around the parts that are being said. You need a capital letter and punctuation inside the inverted commas - DO NOT LET THE SHEEP ESCAPE! (You know what I mean.)


The cobweb was beautiful. It glistened like stars in the sky. Something dreadful happened. I was stuck. All alone. Above my head, I could hear legs climbing down the cobweb towards me. I was so happy someone was coming to help me. " I'm so glad you're here. I've got my new wings caught in this web," I said to the spider.

"Help you! I've come for my lunch." she replied. "It was so nice of you to drop by."

" You don't mean... You're not going to... Please don't eat me!" I begged.

I could feel my body getting tighter as the spider danced around me. How was I going to get out of this?


What to include in your resolution?

  • Year 5 words - marvellous, physical, variety, ancient
  • Modal verb
  • Relative clause


I could feel the fear flooding my body. I could hear the flapping of wings. This had to be the last day of my life. As a caterpillar, I was taught that birds eat us and now I had a spider and a bird coming towards me. The bird, that looked as big as a plane, flew closer; it had its feet out ready to land. All of a sudden, the bird opened its beak ready to eat me. Snap! I was still alive. What had happened? Where was the spider? Had this bird saved me from he spider? Was I next? Snap! I was free. Not only had the bird eaten the spider, but it had cut the web so I could move again.




This term we have been learning about the Hindu celebration, Holi. Create a poster explaining what you have learned. Think about the colours and what they represent.



Today's challenge is to make a Christmas gift. This needs to be suitable for anyone in our class. We will put them all together and give them out as a secret Santa gift at the end of term. It doesn't need to cost money. It is the thought and effort that counts. These need to be in school by Friday so they can be in quarantine before we give them out.

Today we are writing the ending of our story.

What type of ending it yours? Is it a cliff hanger? Does it have a second dilemma? Is it a portal story? Is it a happy ending?


You MUST include your English target in this final paragraph.

What other year 5 features can you use?


I took my opportunity to fly away. I stretch my wings and flew out of the cobweb (I won't be going to look at any more webs). Gently, I glided through the marvellous sky and went in search of a safe place. I could see some beautiful white butterflies bouncing between the most beautiful flowers I had ever seen. Safety in number - I descended through the air to settle on a blue flower. I would stay here for now.
