Classes for September 2020
In September, your new class will be 6S.
Please see their class website page from the morning of Monday 13th July and watch the video to find out who your new teacher will be.
Welcome to 5L!
Your class teacher is Miss Gani
On Wednesday 8th July we are going to hold a mini sports day with the children during their PE session in school and we would like YOU at home to join in with us!
The activities are as follows:
You must jump from 2 feet to 2 feet – measure from take off point to your heel where you land.
How many times can you jump keeping your feet together sideways over a barrier in 20 seconds?
Lay out/make 3 hoops (approx 3m,5m,7m away from you) and attempt to throw one bean bag (or something similar e.g. socks) into each.
Throw a 4 ball as far as possible using only a chest push motion. No turning or twisting body – 2 hands on the ball – must come from chest.
10 x 10 metres – how quickly can you complete this? (measured in seconds)
Please be creative if you do not have exactly the correct equipment e.g. draw chalk circles instead of hoops, use a pair of socks instead of a beanbag, etc.
Let us know how you get on by sending us your results via Purple Mash or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). You could even send us a video of yourself completing these activities!

Keep practising your Spanish with the help of the online language games at Digital Dialects! The activities all have sound files, so you will be able to perfect your Spanish pronunciation!

Days and months
Fruit and Veg
Later on you might like to learn more Spanish and try out:
(Some are pets that you will know)
Spelling games – Animals

Numbers and colours and nouns 1
The Tudor rose was the turning point in the creation of the Tudor House. The white rose symbolised the House of York, whilst the red rose symbolised the House of Lancaster (Henry Tudor's house). Together, through the marriage of Elizabeth of York, the Tudor house and rose were created. Have a look at our brilliant work! They were soo amazing we put them up on display!
During the Tudor era, the differences between the rich and poor were stark! Wealthy people back then could afford to buy and consume luxury items such as meat, fruits and spices. Meanwhile, the poor were forced to survive on basic vegetables, porridge and bread. As a result, the wealthiest individuals would have *certain items* in their poo! Our task as excavators was to look at these differences...we were in for a nasty surprise!
