Good Morning Year 5!

Today I would like you to wish a very special person a happy 100th birthday. 

I am sure you have already heard about Captain Tom Moore, the 99 (now 100!) year old who wanted to raise some money for the NHS to thank them for the good care he had when he was at a hospital recently. He wanted to raise the money by walking 100 laps around his garden.

The whole country got behind him and have helped him to raise millions of pounds to go towards NHS charities. 

He was even invited to record a single with a famous singer called Michael Ball, which is now the number one single in the UK at the moment. What an incredible achievement!

As of Wednesday evening he has made: 

I have put the video here for you to have a look at and listen, the backing singers are all people who work for the NHS too.

Today I would like you to take some time to do 30 minutes of reading, find a comfy spot at home and read something. 

I am still hoping to see that we beat the other KS2 classes to having all targets achieved. 

Miss S Reading


Don't forget to check your targets ( I have been looking to see who is there!)


Reading Targets Summer Term Week 1: 27th April 2020

This is last weeks target countdown- I hope to have some more by the end of the week!


Today is our final day of our work on Greek  story. 

The focus for today is on editing, and this means really thoroughly checking through all aspects. 

I have attached a checklist for your piece of writing that links to things I would be hoping to see in your work. 

Once you have checked through and edited your story, if you want to send it to me to read and look through then please do. 

If you don't share it with me, please try and get someone at home to listen to it so they can enjoy the story of Daedalus and Icarus!


Well done for the last two weeks writing Year Five! You are all stars!

Gold Star!

Today we are following on with the work we started yesterday by looking at dividing a decimal by 10, 100 or 1000. 

Here is some guidance on how to divide the numbers by 10, 100, 1000. 



So to recap this is how you move the numbers along the decimal line when you divide by 10, 100 or 1000:

Below is some work linked to dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 with decimals. 


Today's geography moves on to our own economy, as we will be comparing it with Greece in a few weeks time. It has also been in the news a lot- thinking about how the UK makes its money. 

Have a read through of the fact pages which this week focus on cities and urban areas.
