Growing Together in God

Welcome to the Summer Term. 

For another few weeks, we will continue learning online. 

Your work will be set every Monday and your teachers will communicate with you daily between 10 and 11 am on Class Dojo website.

Remember to access Class Dojo, Sumdog, Times Table Rock Stars, Oxford Reading Buddy and Spellodrome daily.



 Look at the daily task - Chicken Legs Diary and reading inference tasks.

Our class novel at the moment is:

The House with Chicken Legs.

This is a fairly new novel, having been published in 2018. Baba Yaga is a character from East European folklore. Having read many Greek myths this year and with looking at Beowulf this half term, we will use our knowledge of story telling from the past to access this incredible story of life with Baba Yaga as she travels around the world in her house with chicken legs...

Marinka dreams of a normal life, where her house stays in one place long enough for her to make friends. But her house has chicken legs and moves on without warning. For Marinka's grandmother is Baba Yaga, who guides spirits between this world and the next. Marinka longs to change her destiny and sets out to break free from her grandmother's footsteps, but her house has other ideas...


Monday - Grammar/Reading comprehension  (to be submitted by Wednesday).

Wednesday – Maths (to be submitted by Friday).

Friday – Writing / Reading Activity (to be submitted by Monday).  


During the Summer term, we will continue solving maths problems and revising our Year 5 curriculum.


Please make sure you access Times Tables Rock Stars and Sumdog for a few minutes each day because this will really help you this half term!!

Even more games!




This half term, we will continue learning about Volcanoes and Earthquakes.  Did you all manage to complete your learning log?





Learning Logs

Your child received a 'learning log'  just before the Easter holidays.  The tasks in the 'learning log' are due to be completed in time for the new theme so that your children can build on their research when given home learning tasks.
