Hi and welcome to Year 5.
The teachers in year 5 this year are Mrs Norford, Miss Newman and Mrs Bolland. Supporting our classes are Mrs Driver, Mrs Brett and Mrs Hargrave.
We hope you are all well at home. By now you should have received your learning pack for the next few weeks. In the envelope you will find:
* A reading comprehension booklet - which you can choose to do as often as you like.
* A year 5 home learning letter - which includes your spellings and lots of ideas for different learning challenges you and your families can do.
* Websites full of ideas and activities for you to complete.
* Your ttrockstars logins for you to continue to access this from home.
To allow us to keep in contact with you we will be filming video 'bookcasts' weekly in which we will be reading popular books to you. This begins with the completion of 'King of the Cloud Forests' which will be uploaded next week. Also, stay tuned for weekly 'question of the week' which will be based on recent news which you can access on Newsround. There may also be other little snippets of videos from the teaching staff just to keep you entertained!!!
We would like to take the chance to thank you for your continued support and patience in what we know has been a challenging time for all. We will of course return to business as usual as soon as we are able.
Keep looking after yourselves and your families,
Mrs Norford, Miss Newman and Mrs Bolland

Hi Year 5, Mrs Bolland here!
I'm really missing seeing you all and I hope that you and your families are all safe and well. Things are certainly very different for us all at the moment, but hopefully you are finding yourself settling in to a new routine.Have any of you been taking part in the Joe Wicks P.E lessons on YouTube every weekday at 9.30am? I know you'll find this hard to believe, but I've joined in every day so far! (Watch out Mrs Norford!!)
Here is my latest maths update: I hope some of you managed to have a go at some of the maths activities from last week. Here are some more if you are ready for them. This week I've put the sheets (and the answers on), hopefully it will be easier for you to use. You'll still need to follow the link to the videos though, I hope you'll agree they are really useful.
Don't worry if you are not able to join in with these activities, there are plenty of things in your packs to keep you busy, and of course, there is always TTRockstars to play!
Look after yourselves and if you have a few spare minutes, take a look at the video of Mrs Wilson reading a section from the book The Truth Pixie (click on the Children icon and scroll down to Video Resource Centre).
Brainteaser of the week!!!
I'm not alive but I have 5 fingers. What am I?
Answer was of course....... gloves!
LCC- Biomes week 2
Your task this week is to choose two of the biomes from the comparison chart and research how they are different from each other. Include details on: plants, animals and weather patterns. As an extension can you locate places on a world map where these biomes can be found? Good luck!
