Recommended books for year 5!

Hi all,

Some of you were after a reading list to inspire, challenge and motivate our wonderful readers. Here are a couple of lists for some amazing books to consider when choosing your next read:

My personal favourite from the list is The Boy at the Back of the Class by Onjali Q Rauf. If you liked ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’, you might like it too! 


Home Learning for next week

Dear Parents/Carers,

Given the current number of absences, please see the attached document which provides a range of suitable activities for your child to work through so as to maintain solid progress.

We wish any home learners all the best and would love to see you uploading regularly onto the Y5 homework blog.

Kind Regards,

From notes to chords

Today in Music, the children learnt about the 12 bar blues which is a pattern of chords. A chord is made up of two or more notes played at the same time. Triads are chords made up of three notes. The children simultaneously played the notes C, E and G to create a C chord and practised playing to different tempos.


If you are at home, why don’t you have a look for famous songs which use the 12 bar blues?

Reading at home

For those isolating at home, whilst your child will have access to Bug Club and Fiction Express, they could also be reading our class text. Attached is a copy of the book and some VIPERS style questions to work through at home. In school, we will aim to be up to chapter 20 by the end of this week.
