I have attached some Summer home learning English and Maths tasks which you might want to have a go at over the Summer holidays to keep your brains ticking over before coming back in September. These are all optional of course and make sure you do all have a well deserved rest as well.
I hope you have a great Summer and I have really enjoyed our slightly strange year together!
For this final week of term, as well as your daily English and Maths tasks, we’d like to challenge you to make a start on the National Trust’s list of 50 Things To Do Before You’re 11 ¾. A handy pdf of the poster is attached below, and you can find more details about each of the activities on the National Trust website here:

Congratulations! You have made it to the last day of home learning and more importantly your last day as a fox in Class 5. I just wanted to say a big thank you for all your kind words and gifts yesterday. I really enjoyed seeing lots of you and getting the chance to say goodbye! I have enjoyed teaching you all and wish we could have finished the year together. However, make sure you all have a lovely Summer holiday. Additionally, I want to wish Lucy a very happy birthday for a few weeks time (15th August) have a wonderful day!
So alongside your final Maths and English task today, I will be uploading a Class Quiz all about our year for you to have a go at at 9am.
Make sure you (and your parents) all have a well deserved rest over the next few weeks.
Goodbye and good luck,

Good morning! Firstly, well done to all of you who had a go at writing a newspaper article about the invasion of the Spanish in yesterday's Topic task, I really enjoyed reading them. Today's Maths is a domino chain game looking at strategy. In English, you will read a couple of poems about Lockdown and answer some questions about them.
Finally, I am very much looking forward to seeing most of you actually at school this morning

Morning! Aside from our Maths which would definitely interest Mr Burns and our English which uses street art as inspiration we have our last Topic lesson. To finish our Aztec learning, we will learn about the Spanish invasion of the Aztec empire - let's see how it all falls down!

Well good morning Class 5! Can you believe that this is our last week of home learning?? Let's make it a good week. You have Maths and English tasks as usual and I have uploaded another set of mental Maths questions if you want to give them a go alongside the usual task. Mostly this week we won't be having a third lesson, we have some tasks and challenges for you to have a go at instead. However, we have not quite finished our topic learning so I will be uploading the last topic lessons all about the end of the Aztec empire after the Spanish invaded them for you to see how it all ended!
Today if you want to there is a fun Science quiz!
There was an old lady of Suntown,
Who couldn’t help but frown.
To get to the ball, 👸🏻😠
She climbed a blue wall,
And she frowned ‘till the sun went down.
There was an old man in a wig,
Which was in the shape of a pig.
He thought he’d make a smoothie, 🕺🏻🍹
And he was very groovy,
So instead he did a jig.
There was an old girl of Sanote,
And on her head was a post-it-note.
It said, “I am scared,” 😖😳
So everyone stared
At the poor girl of Sanote!
