Hello Year 5,.
I hope you are all staying safe and well at home. I am looking forward to meeting you in person in the classroom, but until then I will continue to put work on here every day for you to do.
You will need to send your work in to a different email address now:
Please do not use the year 5 email address as I am unable to access it and your work will not be seen. If you have any questions, please email me and I will respond as soon as I can.
We will still be using the following websites:
Please get in touch if you cannot remember your log-in details.
These websites are also useful:
Don't forget, you can do PE with Joe Wicks every day online. He does it live every day at 9am but you can watch it anytime of the day.
Take care of yourselves
Mental Health and Well-being
We are all having to cope with different and strange circumstances at the moment, and it is important that we look after our own mental health as well as that of our children.
We have been sent some documents which give ideas to help support you and your families. One of them is designed to help children who are already being supported so please do not be put off by the heading. These are suggestions that could benefit any one. I have also included the letter from the school nurses which is on the home page. This gives the number that you can contact if you feel you would like to talk to someone about your child.
Bolton Educational Psychology Service newsletter 24.4.20 Looking after yourself and others
The choir songs are here so you can keep practising them. Hopefully you will get to sing them later in the year.
Week beginning Monday 13th July
Hello year 5! I cannot believe we have reached the final week of the school year and we are still homeschooling. I was really looking forward to meeting you all but at least I will still get to see you in September when you are in year 6. You will have to wave to me on the playground!
I have given you an activity which asks about your memories of year 5. It is on the plan for Friday but of course you can do this at any time during the week. It would be lovely if everyone sent this to me so that I can put them all in a final gallery next weekend. You could then share your memories with everyone in the class, and probably read about some things that you had forgotten about. I hope that you have enjoyed being in year 5, and I would like to wish you all the very best for year 6. Keep on being the lovely class that I have heard so much about.
Have a lovely summer.

Mrs Angold has created a game for you called Save St Saviours. You need to check your 2email and then go into your to dos. Have fun!
Our gallery for last week.
Week beginning Monday 6th July
Hello! I hope you have had a lovely week and weekend. Thank you for your emails and photos - see below in the gallery. There is also another great film made by Zee for you to watch. Callum has also made one which I am trying to put on here but it is not playing at the moment. I will keep trying. I was pleased to hear that some of you had watched the film Rio, and really got into the carnival spirit! Have a lovely week.
This week's gallery includes more baking, maths, English, art and topic.
Also, Sam, wearing a great birthday T-shirt! I hope you had a lovely day Sam.
Week beginning Monday 29th June
Hello again Year 5! Can you believe it is nearly the end of June already? I hope you are all safe and well. There are lots of photos to look at this week in the gallery (see below). I am pleased to hear that you enjoyed making (and eating) the crepes and madeleines. It is lovely to see your photos so please keep sending them. I hope you are still enjoying the music lessons as well. We had fun in year 6 last week doing the cup song!
Adults: I have added the latest newsletter above which has some great suggestions for doing maths at home.
This week we are using a different source for our maths lessons so that you do not need to print anything. There is a video to watch for each lesson and all the answers can be written on a piece of paper. There is also a quiz which you do at the start and end of each lesson, so you can send me your scores to let me know how you got on. All the instructions are on the website and I have also written some guidance on this week's overview. Please let me know how you get on with it.
I hope you have a lovely week. Mrs S x
This week's gallery is full of poems, maths, D&T, topic, baking, PSHE, art, book reviews and even Eric Morecambe! Can you spot who is giving him a high five?
Week beginning Monday 22nd June
Hello Year 5! How are you? I hope you didn't get too wet last week with all that rain that we had. Thank you again for your emails and photos. I will add to the gallery below as the week progresses as I have not yet had chance to look at all the photos that have come over the weekend.
I hope you are finding the BBC lessons easy to follow. Please let me know if not.
Adults: Another two newsletters have been added to the Mental Health and Well-being section above. They both have some very useful suggestions: one for helping children who may be feeling anxious, and one for helping children who have difficulties with their working memory.
I hope you have a lovely week in the sunshine when we get it.
This week's gallery
Week beginning Monday 15th June
Hello Year 5! Another week begins... I hope you are all well. Thank you for your emails and photos, some of which are in this week's gallery below.
I have added the latest newsletters above from Bolton Educational Psychology Service. One has advice for preparing children when we do return to school, and the second has advice for working with children who have difficulties with literacy.
Adults: this week's English lessons include some clips from You Tube, so you might want to look at the content first, or watch them with your child.
I have put some extra colouring sheets at the bottom of the resources for those of you who like colouring. Lots of adults find it a relaxing activity as well.
I hope you have a lovely week.
This week's gallery includes some lovely art work. Keep sending me your photos as I love to see what you have been doing. Well done to Callum who has been earning some money painting fences.
Week beginning Monday 8th June
Plans have changed since I wrote this and we are not now opening today for reception, year 1 and year 6. This means that for now, I will be able to respond to emails, unless i am in school with children of key workers.
Hello Year 5! How are you all? I hope you are all well and have had a lovely break. Please have a look at the gallery below to see what people got up to before the half term holiday. Charlie had a visit from someone at Manchester United and he is going to be playing there for another year. Well done Charlie! Bella did some fantastic origami, and there are some lovely diary entries showing how life has changed during lockdown.
This half term, work will be set out on a weekly basis rather than daily, as all staff will be working in school every day with Reception, Year 1, Year 6 and children of key workers.
I will still save your work in your file and still put a gallery of photos on here each week, so please continue to send them to me. If you have any problems or feedback, please email me and I will respond when I can, but it may not be immediate.
The overview is for the whole week. The first page is for English and maths, then topic and foundation subjects are on the second page. I will put any extra sheets and resources that you need below the overview as before. You will see these written in red on the overview. We are going to use more of the BBC Bitesize lessons this week so please let me know if you have any problems. Hope you have a good week.
These are pictures from just before the half term holiday. They include a mixture of work, crafts, some lovely thoughts on how life has changed at the moment, and also a celebration of Charlie's footballing talents. Congratulations Charlie on being asked to play for Manchester United for another year!
We would love you to share images/videos of your children completing the tasks.
It would be fantastic if parents could tag Bolton Wanderers Community Trust @OfficialBWCT in any tweets so that we can see people enjoying this initiative and retweet. As an added incentive there will be a prize (TBC) which could be matchday tickets, sports/PE equipment, 1st Team Player Appearance etc. for the school with the most engagement/tweets that tag/mention Bolton Wanderers Community

Our gallery this week includes acts of kindness, the joy of moving, work that you have done, and also a photo of caterpillar eggs on a leaf from Bella's garden.
Friday 22nd May
Well can you believe it? It's the last day of the half term, and what a strange half term it has been! Not only are we mostly working from home, but I still haven't met most of you. I keep being told what a lovely class I have and I am still hoping that I get to teach you in the classroom at some point.
Thank you for all your lovely emails, and for your hard work. Keep doing what you are doing and stay safe.
After today, you have two weeks off to enjoy the sunshine (hopefully) and relax with your families. Keep sending me your photos and I will add them to the gallery. Have a lovely half term break.
Some of you asked for more origami so I have added some at the bottom of today's work.

Thursday 21st May
Hello! It is lovely to see all the acts of kindness that you are doing, including Callum making lunch for his family, Anton changing nappies and Kian helping to fill a skip. Well done and keep it up. Also well done to Isla, Milo, Lois and Freddy who topped the leader boards in the TTRockstars battle. Fantastic effort from lots of you.
Wednesday 20th May
Hello again! I hope you are having a good week. Thank you for your emails and photos. It is great to see you taking part in the Joy of Moving, and to hear about your acts of kindness. It was also lovely to see the origami butterflies and penguins that you have made. Well done! Some of you have asked if you could have more origami activities, so I will have a look this week for you.
In the meantime, here is your work for today. The code for the English work is j y n.
Tuesday 19th May
Hello Year 5! Thank you for your emails yesterday. Did you manage to do an act of kindness? Try to do one each day this week.
I have added a couple of extra art activities on today, which I spotted when I was looking at life cycles of animals. Send me a photo if you manage to make the butterfly or penguin.
Monday 18th May
Hello Year 5. I hope you have had a lovely weekend. This week is Mental Health Awareness week and so our PSHE is going to start today and continue all week. There is a certificate to be given out on Friday to everyone who has taken part. Also this week, we are taking part in the Joy of Moving which is great for your mental as well as physical health. We will use this in PE but you can do the activities anytime. Take a look at the booklet above (click on the link.)
The code for maths is owb.
Here is some of your work from last week.
I have finally managed to put Zee's short films on here. The first one was made by Zee and his sister for VE Day, as you will see if you look at what they are spelling. The second is Zee's topic work: Anglo-Saxons at home. Unfortunately, they get invaded by a Viking. I think these films are very clever. Thank you Zee and Kayla!
Friday 15th May
Hello. It's Friday again! I hope you enjoyed the sunshine yesterday and got some exercise outside. Look out next week for some new PE sessions as we are taking part in the 'Joy of Moving' organised by the English Football League. Mrs Hypolite has sent a brilliant music lesson again - I have already been singing the songs. I wonder if your parents can guess which film is involved if I say that I spent a day last year wandering around Salzburg, looking at the film locations and singing on the steps...
Thursday 14th May
Hello everyone. Thank you again for your emails and work. Are you managing to do the PE with Joe? We did it in school yesterday and the year 5 girls definitely won the prize for effort! There were some fantastic scores on TTRockstars. Well done to Zee, Dylan, Thomas and Freddy for topping the teams.
The maths code is gkt. Task 2 is the more challenging set of questions.
Wednesday 13th May
Hello! I hope you managed to get outside a little bit yesterday and dodged the rain. The TTRockstars battle is still going on. So far Zee, Milo, Thomas and Freddy are topping their teams. Well done to them and also to Dylan who is close behind. Will it still be the same at 4pm today?
Here is a selection of your work from the last couple of weeks.
Can you spot who is wearing the replica Anglo-Saxon helmet on his visit to Sutton Hoo a few years ago?
Tuesday 12th May
Hello again! Thank you for your emails and work. Have a look at the photos above to see what people have been doing. I also have two fantastic video clips from Zee but unfortunately they will not upload. I will save them to show you when/if we get back into school.
Monday 11th May
Hello! I hope you have all enjoyed your extra long weekend. I am looking forward to seeing your photos of what you got up to on VE Day. I did an online quiz with some friends, then another one with the family, helped my son do his football training (although he said I am not good at kicking a football) and enjoyed doing some gardening in the sunshine. I will be putting the next newsletter on today (see above) and also some photos of your work.
The code for maths is n y u.
Thursday 7th May
Hello Year 5. Thank you for sending me your work and messages this week. I am putting on your work for today, and also some extra activities that you might like to do today or tomorrow to celebrate VE Day. There won't be any lessons set tomorrow. I know some of you are having street parties (whilst keeping to your own gardens) but if you are not, you will still be able to enjoy the sunshine hopefully and spend extra time with your family. Please send photos of whatever you get up to so that we can all share in each other's experiences. Stay safe, have fun and enjoy your extra long weekend.
VE Day extra activities
Wednesday 6th May
Hello and thank you again for your emails and work. I hope you have had a lovely day. I have put some documents above on our webpage that some parents might like to have a look at.
Tuesday 5th May
Hello again! Thank you for all your work yesterday. This is a shorter school week as Friday is a bank holiday for VE Day. I know some of you are having socially distancing street parties which I think is a great idea. I would love to see some photos.
Here is your work for today. There are quite a few separate sheets as I have tried to keep it as easy as possible to follow.
Monday 4th May
Hello! Happy Monday and may the 4th be with you... I hope you have had a lovely weekend.
The code for LBQ is aaq.
Friday 1st May
Hello Year 5. May has arrived! The May Day bank holiday is different this year - do you know why? See if you can find out if not.
We had a few technical difficulties on Wednesday with the ICT but it is accessible now if you have not done it. Thank you Mrs Angold!
I was very impressed with your work on LBQ yesterday. It was good to see your perseverance if you did not get the correct answer first time. Keep sending me your emails as I enjoy seeing what you have been up to.
Thursday 30th April
Hello! Can you believe it's the last day of April already? Thank you again for all your fantastic work. It is great to get your emails and see what you have been doing.
Here is today's work. The code for the LBQ task is sgs.
Wednesday 29th April
Hello! I hope you are all safe and well.
There is an important letter from Mrs Angold today (ICT) about how we are going to give you the lesson plan in future. It will make it easier for all of us. Read it carefully and you will find out how to access today's lesson.
I was impressed with the way you tackled the White Rose Maths challenges last Friday. In case you haven't seen the answers, I have attached them below at the bottom of the activities. Have a look and see how you did. They are for years 3-6 so some will be more difficult than others.
Tuesday 28th April
Hello again! Thank you for all your work yesterday.
I am going to be putting daily spelling and mental maths activities on here for you from now on, as you would normally be doing these every day in school. Please remember to practise your handwriting as well, and of course please read every day. I know a lot of you are already doing this as you love reading. Keep sending me your work as I am saving everything in your school files.
Parents/Carers, I do put the answers to some activities on here so if you are able to go through some of them with your child, it will really help them. It is much more beneficial if they get immediate feedback. Thank you!
Monday 27th April
Hello! I hope you have had a lovely weekend and you were able to spend some time outside in the sunshine. Have you seen our messages to you? The video is on the homepage of this website. Hope you enjoy it.
Thank you for your work and feedback. The powerpoints etc seem to work better on laptops/PCs rather than mobile devices. Make sure you view powerpoints as a slideshow, otherwise you will not be able to use them properly. If you cannot open the powerpoint for spellings, try to find out what some of your words mean before you copy them onto your sheet.
Friday 24th April
Hello year 5. It's Friday! Thank you for all your work this week and also thank you for your lovely welcoming messages both this week and last. I am looking forward to meeting you all and getting to know you properly. Your work for today is below. Mrs Hypolite is sending us music lessons now so enjoy this week's. I hope you have a lovely weekend.
Thursday 23rd April
Hello Year 5. Thank you for all your work. Are you managing to do the PE workout with Joe? I tried it yesterday in school. It certainly gets you warmed up!
Here is your work for today.
Wednesday 22nd April
Hello again. I hope you have been able to enjoy the sunshine. Thank you for all your work. I really like the sound of the books that you are reading. Try to read a bit each day, as well as practising your spellings and times tables.
Here is your work for today.
Tuesday 21st April
Hello everyone. We had a few technical problems yesterday so fingers crossed everything will be ok today.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize now have daily lessons so we will be using them sometimes. They have lots of good activities so it's worth taking a look at what they offer. Please email me if you have any questions and I will respond as soon as I am able to. If you don't hear from me, it may be that I am in school that day with the children of key workers.
Make sure you read today's school newsletter for news of Miss Roe. Congratulations to her and her family.
Don't forget to read each day and practise your spellings.
Here is your work for today.
Monday 20th April
Hello everyone. I hope you have enjoyed your weekend .
Thank you for all your work on Friday. Congratulations to Anton, Charlie F, Lois and Harry who were top of the groups on TTRockstars. Mason, your score was fantastic as well.
Here is your work for today.
Friday 17th April
Thank you again for all your hard work. I will let you know how the TTRockstars battle went later in the day as it is still going on as I write this. Please find today's work below and then enjoy your weekend.
I have added the answers for the times tables challenge and big maths beat that so you can check your own and see where/if you have gone wrong.
Don't forget the TTRockstars is still open until 8.30pm tonight. So far, Anton, Mason, Charlie F, Lois and Harry are doing brilliantly for their teams.
Thursday 16th April
Thank you for all the work you sent in to me yesterday. It was lovely to read your sentences and find out a little bit about you. Please get in touch if you need to ask anything. Don't forget to use my email address, not the year 5 one.
Mrs Angold has finished updating this week's computing wall of fame so make sure you have a look at the message boards to see who is on it. Also, don't forget to check your alerts in purple mash as Mrs Angold is giving feedback to all of you for your work.
Here is the work for today. (Just click on the words and the documents should open.)
The Children's Changing Places group, which is linked to the Diocese, has asked every school to share this resource with their families. There are some nice Easter activities included. However, a number of the suggestions require specific resources that families might not have access to, so please do not feel any pressure to use it or to complete all the activities! It might just give you some nice ideas of things to do as a family during what would have been the official Easter break.
Mrs Angold has had an idea of what you could do to stay in touch over Easter:
I thought it would be nice to all share some messages on Purple Mash and at the same time see some familiar faces and what better way to do that than with a mashcam and your class blog!
- Open the To Do called ‘Mashcam Messages’– first play the message by pressing the Green triangle. You will then hear my message to you and it will give you an idea of what to do! After you have seen my mashcam message to you, simply save and exit and hand it in (then I will know who has seen the message).
- Next, you will need to make sure you have a device that has a camera (mobile phones are great as are ipads/tablets) - without it you can’t take that all important selfie!
- Next type the word ‘mashcam’ into the Purple Mash search bar (it has the magnifying glass) If you have done this correctly you will then see 3 images – select the middle image of a robot head with no face. This will open into a new page. Now all you have to do is choose a mashcam, take a picture and write your message! Job done.
- When you are happy with your mashcam please save it to your work folder – remember make sure your file name makes sense. For example’ Mrs Angold’s mirror mashcam’.
- Once you have saved it you can share it on your class blog called ‘Mashcam Messages’ which I have set up for you.
- To see someone’s full message on the blog just double click the image
SHARING YOUR WORK: If you can’t remember how to do this – no worries!
- Re-Open your mashcam work, 2.
- click the hamburger/menu icon (top left)
- click the share icon (the earth with an arrow wrapped around it)
- Finally select the ‘blog’ icon on the right (the one with an image of two mountains and a sun).
- Give it a title and add a description if you want to
- Your work will then appear in the class Mashcam Message Blog.
Can’t wait to see your messages! Remember when posting be kind and respectful of others!
Friday 3rd April 2020
So this is the last lot of work I will be posting for a while, as Mrs Smallwood will be taking over after Easter. It's been amazing over the last couple of weeks to see how so many of you have embraced home learning and got stuck into all of the activities, you should be really proud of yourselves! I know I am really proud of you all. Keep working hard and I will make sure I keep myself updated on what you are all getting up to. Hopefully, when everything is back to normal, I will be able to come and visit you all and see how you've been getting on.
Take care, stay safe and keep on being the amazing class you are!
Miss Roe xx
A big well done to Mason, Kian, Jack M and Charlie M for topping your group on TT Rockstars!
There seems to have been less technical issues today which is a positive! Thank you for all the work sent today, it is really great to see what you have been getting up to. Don't forget that the TT Rockstar competition is still open until tomorrow at 8:30pm so if you haven't had chance to get on yet then you still have time. So far, well done to Mason, Toby, Jack M and Charlie M who are topping their leader boards. Will it still be that way tomorrow? Who knows!
There are still a few children who haven't sent any work to me at all yet - I would love to see what you have been doing (as I am missing you all a lot!) so if you could send me something via the Year 5 email address firstname.lastname@example.org I would really like to see what you've been doing. Most people are snapping pictures of the work that has been done and then have emailed it over. I am saving everything you send to me as I don't want your hard work to be for nothing.
Have a great day!

Wednesday 1st April 2020
Thanks again for another day of hard work from you. We seem to have had a few technical issues with attachments not being delivered to the email address and some of the work not being able to be viewed very well. I am very sorry if you have been having these issues - technology is great until it doesn't work! The documents all work fine if you view them on a laptop or PC, so please do that if you can. I'm not sure why some of the attachments are not coming through but do keep trying as I love seeing what you have been doing at home.
Hopefully Wednesday's work will be more successful!
Tuesday 31st March 2020
