Remote Learning


Good Morning everybody!

Here is today's remote learning:



Yesterday, I reset the password for ActivLearn (Bug Club). Please let me know if you are unable to access this. 


Have a Fun Friday!


Mr. Grierson.


Good morning.
Here is today's remote learning. I will also be sending out emails with login details for Bug Club (a fabulous reading resource) and Spelling Shed. If you need any other login details please let us know so that we can keep you all learning.


Have a great Thursday!

Mr. Grierson



Good Morning!

We are looking at moving away from the Oak National Academy lessons but for the rest of this week we will be using these resources while we look at the logistics of the provision of more personalised learning.

If you have any issues accessing any of the resources, please contact me on Dojo or via the school email.







Have a great day!


Firstly, let me wish you all a Happy New Year!

Once again, we find ourselves in a situation where we are forced to learn remotely. With the speed of the decision to close schools, we are still co-ordinating how remote learning will best suit the needs of our school community. I will post work on here each day for the children to access and they are able to respond via Class Dojo.

For the time being, the remote learning will be as follows:





Keep safe. We hope to see the children back in school as soon as possible.

Best regards,

Mr Grierson, Ms Whidden and Mr Astley-Cooper.

Welcome to Year 5

Key Information:


Drop off is from 8:50 - 9:00 via car park entrance. The children will be met by their teacher on the playground ready to take them into class.

Please limit items the children bring in to school.  They should only need to bring a coat and a water bottle (and a packed lunch if required). Each child will receive a pencil case which should cater for their needs. If the children wish to bring in some colouring pencils then these must remain in school. We would encourage only small packs so that they may be incorporated into their school pencil case.  


Our PE days are Monday(outdoor) and Wednesday(indoor). PE kit is to be worn to school on these days. PE kit consists of black shorts or joggers, a house coloured tee shirt (or polo shirt) and trainers. 


Home Learning Expectations:


Children should be reading at home for a minimum of 10 minutes every day as this equates to one year's extra progress.

Continued practise of their times tables has a huge impact on their confidence and fluency in Maths. They could use TTRockstars (Login details can be found in the front of their reading records) or quick fire questions. 


We still have our topic based project home learning ideas and if these are completed, please share the outcomes on ClassDojo where we will be able to share them with the whole class. 

Term 1 - Pharaohs:

We are starting the year with a history based topic focusing on Ancient Egypt. Take a look at the knowledge organiser for an overview of what we will be covering.

Term 2 - Stargazers:

Our next topic takes us on a journey through our solar system and beyond. Take a look at the knowledge organiser for an overview of what we will be covering.

Term 3 - Off With Her Head:

Our next topic takes us back in time to meet the terrifying Tudors!


During this half term, we’ll meet a very important figure from history who will give us a problem to solve. Online research will help us to write biographies about influential people of the period, and we’ll use source materials to create a Tudor timeline. Tudor portraits will provide us with the inspiration to create royal paintings.  Our geography skills will help us to compare maps of Tudor London to present day London and plot Anne Boleyn’s journey to her execution. Internet research will help us learn more about Henry’s life, his marriages and his break from the Roman Catholic church.


Take a look at the knowledge organiser for a in depth overview of what we will be covering.

Home Learning:

There is a selection of home learning activities covering a range of skills. As stated above, please share the outcomes on ClassDojo where we will be able to share and celebrate them with the whole class.
