Good morning Year 5.

Excellent work this week, you’ve jumped straight back into a great routine of completing your home learning tasks. I’m very proud of each and every one of you.

Today our google classroom meeting will begin at the later time of 10:00am. I look forward to seeing you all then.

Today your tasks include, ICT, English, RE and Fairtrade. I will also be explaining what to do with your Tudor project.

Today I would like you to read through the lesson presentation below and then answer the following questions:

  • What do you think is the meaning of the words: mystery of faith?
  • What is the same about these three responses, what is different?
  • Recall the work on the Advent/ Christmas topic, Hope, about Jesus coming again at the end of the world, why do you think two of these responses include the words: Until you come again. What do you think this means and why is it here?
  • What sacrifice is the Eucharist a memorial of?

Tudor Project:

Use today to create a PowerPoint or a video to present all of your work from your Tudor project. You could explain how you created different parts of your project. You could also use this as a way of performing whatever you have created.

I look forward to seeing your finished project.


Each year our school takes part in Fairtrade Fortnight. We discuss what Fairtrade means and complete many fun activities linked to Fairtrade.

This Fairtrade Fortnight we will come together to learn about, and celebrate, the people who grow our food and drink and explore this years theme ‘Climate, Fairtrade and You’.  Through completing some of the activities today, I hope that you will have the opportunity to discover how your choices can make a difference to the lives of people around the world and the planet we share. #ChooseTheWorldYouWant

Before we begin your task, I’d like you to watch this video carefully where Fairtrade is explained to you:

In this 9-minute virtual visit, Claire Arnott from the Fairtrade Foundation explores this years Fairtrade Fortnight theme – Climate, Fairtrade and You.
