Good morning Year 5.

It’s the final week of this half term. Thankyou so much for all the effort and great work you have handed in over the last six weeks.

Today our tasks include, Maths, English, Science, PE and Spellings. Tomorrow morning I will be giving feedback on Maths and any other misconceptions.


Well done Year 5, over the last two weeks we covered area and perimeter, it was so great to see so many of you understanding the methods and strategies used in this topic.

This week we will focus on ‘Statistics’, this is the study of information or date which is collected. When we study this information we can present it in different ways and understand it better. Our first lesson will be a recap of understanding information on a line graph. It is important that you take your time and understand this step first before we move on to more detailed work later in this week.

Watch the following video and answer the worksheet below.

Using our work and knowledge from last week, we  will continue with our non-chronological report. This lesson focuses on the next paragraph ‘how to write about the appearance of the Tiger’. Make sure you record all of your work and send this to me.


To continue our work on the properties of materials, it is important that you understand how certain product were invented and the purpose for their creation. I have provided a list of famous inventors and their product. The worksheet asks you to create a fact file however, I would like something more detailed and with interesting information included. You can create a poster or PowerPoint all about your inventor and their invention. I look forward to these being handed in today.

Today we will continue with our #INSPIRE Skipping Challenge. Please follow the videos below for the new skipping skills. We appreciate that not everyone will have a skipping rope, if you do, please take part in the challenge. If you don’t have a skipping rope, continue staying active as much as you can.


Here are the spellings for this week. Use each word and create a sentence with each one. You may need to look up the word in a dictionary or through a google search to find its meaning. I look forward to reading your sentences. See if you can add in relative clauses or fronted adverbials into your sentences as a further challenge.


Enjoy your day everyone,

Take care,

Mr. Craig.
