Hello Class 5

I hope you all had a good weekend and are ready to get back to work.

I have already received a number of Buddy Letters and they are great. Thank you so much. I am sure your buddies will love reading them.

I have attached the power point and letter headings again for those of you who are still working on your letters.

Work for Monday will include:

A Purple Mash Spelling Quiz.

Grammar Activity on Expanded Nouns. Please complete this work in your exercise book.

Maths Activity on square numbers, prime numbers and factors.

Active Learn (read 30 mins and complete the comprehension questions as you read the book)

TT Rockstars  (30 mins practise)


Have a good day.

Mrs McClellan

Thank you for all your hard work this week. I have been very impressed with the Buddy Letters I have received.


Active Learn: 

x1 reading book (30 mins daily)



X30 mins practise.



Please finish off any outstanding work from your booklet. This booklet does not need printing off. You need to do the work in your exercise book. There are more books outside school if you need a new one. I should have also made it clear that you only need to complete a page a day. If you wish to do more, then that is your decision.

Well done to those who tried the maths challenge I set yesterday. 

If you have finished all the work I have set, then I have attached a money exercise. Answer the questions in your exercise book.

Maths Challenge

Wednesday 29th April 2020

Before I start to list the work for today, I want to say how disappointed I am that someone is  messing around with other children's Purple Mash accounts and TT Rockstars accounts. Parents have e-mailed the school to report this. It would appear that this is only happening in Year 5. So, Mrs Fryman has been made aware of this and we hope it does not happen again. 


Purple Mash:  Maths 2-do activity has been set.

Purple Mash:  E-Safety 2-do activity has been set. In this activity, think about how you could safely use the internet to research information. Also think about what could happen if you didn't follow a safe route. Watch the video to help you.


Active Learn: Continue to read for at least 30 mins.

TT ROCKSTARS: Practise for at least 30 mins.
