Week 5 - commencing 4th May

Hello Year 5!

I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend!

I know that learning from home is extremely different to how our school day might look, but I'm sure that you are all trying hard and doing your best!

I've been super-impressed with the fantastic work you are completing and the other great activities you are up to - keep the photos coming and continue to add to our class 'Lockdown' blog - it's a great way for us all to keep in touch!


Don't forget, Friday is a Bank Holiday - so no work!

Make sure you have fun and relax!

You could always spend a bit of time baking, if it's OK with the grown-ups at home and you promise to help tidy up afterwards! (Look at the Home Page for Year 5 in case you missed the scone challenge.)smiley



We all agree that it’s really important that you are as well-prepared as possible for your next school year. To help make this happen, White Rose Maths and the BBC have joined forces!  They’ve created a learning plan which means that you will have the opportunity to:

  • understand the main concepts you need for your work next year
  • cover any new learning that you haven’t yet done in school

Not only will you have White Rose slides to help you learn the content of the lesson, but the BBC maths lessons for the day will match!  This means you can use the White Rose slides and the information on the BBC Bitesize website.

Every day, there will be a learning video on the White Rose web page to watch and a link to that day’s BBC Bitesize page for more information and even more lesson content.


This week, we’re going to be using the BBC Bitesize Home Learning resources. As these don’t get put online until the day before, it makes it tricky for us teachers to plan when using them, so I will be using the Literacy lessons that were published last week. Make sure you follow the link I put on for each lesson so you go to the right place!

If you were keen last week and have already had a go, that’s great, it just means that you will have had a chance to practise already. I may change the activities slightly or ask you to produce some different work, so please still give them a go and follow the sessions I put on over the week.

Each day, please can you:

Read for at least 10 -15 minutes.

Practise your times tables for 10 to 15 minutes on Times Tables Rock Stars.

Do 30-60 minutes of exercise. Why not have a go at following the football ideas below?

Complete the Maths, Literacy and topic tasks.

Practise your weekly spellings: Knowledge, Experiment, Standardise, Televise, Relocate


PE with Derbyshire School Games

The School Games Organiser network and Active Derbyshire are working together to create and publish a weekly programme of activities to help children, just like you, to keep active whilst schools are closed and we are having to stay at home.

This week, they have created a series of activities around 'FOOTBALL'!

Open the document below to find a daily activity and lots of tips and guidance on how to do it. There's a bit of a quiz to get you started, then each day, you'll find a challenge. If you keep scrolling down, you'll find instructions and helpful diagrams to show you what to do.

Why not involve your family? You can all keep active and play football together?

Don't forget to send photos of how you get on to year5@overseal.derbyshire.sch.uk  - it's great to see what you are all up to and how you're getting on!
