Hopefully you are all safe and well and those of you who have come to school have enjoyed being back. This will be the last week of work we set for you.

You are going to select a Greek Mythological character, setting and monster for your own Greek myth. You can do this using the story dice we have attached, or you can select your favourite ones from there or even use your own Greek mythological creature. When you have a setting and characters, use the story board to plan the story. I have also attached a link to an example of a Greek Myth. If you are unsure of any of the characters you can do you own research to find out about them.

29th June Summer Week 5

Hello everybody. It has been lovely to see and/or hear from you over the past week. We are getting very close to the end of the year now so please do let us know if there is anything you need or would like to ask etc. as the children will soon be 'officially' Year 6! There will be virtual transition meetings to hear from your new class teacher and ask them any questions you have regarding next year in due course. 


As Monday is a TED day and the school is closed to all pupils, we will not be setting any work for Monday. However, you will need to refer to your notes made from Friday's topic lesson, researching the Trojan war. If you didn't do this lesson then it is important that you carry out some research before attempting Tuesday's writing lesson. There are some links and guidance in last week's lesson guide.

Click here for diary entry example.

Thursday 2nd July English.    Reading assessment

(Again you could do this with a parent and talk through the answers or treat it as a formal assessment - there is no English lesson for Friday to give you a chance to go through anything you might struggle with on these two assessments)

A reminder of the expectations in Year 5:

Homework completed by Thursday, set on Friday.

Spellings to learn each week

Times table practise is essential - this will really show up in our weekly times tables tests.

You should write three entries per week into your reading record when you read. In addition to this you should be reading to your parents, who should be signing your reading record to say they have heard you read, twice per week.
