  • Spellings: On the ‘attachments’ section of our Class Page, you will find your spellings document entitled: ‘Year 5 Autumn 1 Week 3 Dictations’. Please practise these spellings ahead of retaking the spelling test later in the week. You will need an adult or an older brother or sister to help you with this part.
  • Maths: Use the link below: 


Click on Week 3, Lesson 3 – Divide with remainders. Watch the video, do the activity, mark your answers. If you have any questions, or are struggling in some way – please get in contact with myself on Dojo and I will try your best to help you!


(Remember – if this material to too hard for your child at this stage in their development or without the resources they would have access to in school – please do not worry about doing this. You are also welcome to try lower year group work if you feel this would be beneficial. Please contact me if you think this applies to yourself. Thanks!)


p.s. Please message me to let me know when you have done your maths work – it is nice to see it, as I cannot see it like I could on Purple Mash. Thanks!  


Topics: History and Art.


This week - I will be reading to you “The Wooden Horse”. This is a story about the Trojan War. The story is 7 chapters long. I will be reading two chapters a day (We are looking at Chapters 4 and 5 today). The pages are on the website, and a video of me reading it on our Class Story of Class Dojo.


Today’s task is very simple. I would like you have a go at writing a diary entry, as if you were one of soldiers inside the Trojan Horse. I will put a document telling you what you need in your diary entry for it to be successful in the attachments section of our class page. (If you are feeling particularly inventive, you could try and make your diary look old by using used tea bags to stain it for example!) The choice is yours!


If you need any more help, please let me know on Class Dojo!
