Welcome to Peace Class!

We are Year 5s and our teacher is Mr Lawrence

Friday 10 07 20

Good morning everybody!

You know what to do today - it's well being day. Check the Home Learning Resources, see if there's something you fancy doing on there. Catch up with any work you need to catch up on. It looks like an OK day weather wise - go for a paddle in the river.

Have a lovely day!

English - writing

This week I am giving you some story writing to do. 

Keep the story beginnings safe as you will need them for the following (and last!) week of term.


We are finishing off volume and then I am going to give you some consolidation work to do.

Topic this week is all to do with the sea: on it and under it. It is one of the things we know least about on earth - see what you can find out!

VIPERS carries on:

The reading aspect will be based on VIPERS, carrying on with Goodnight Mr Tom  for our novel. VIPERS stands for Vocabulary, Inference, Prediction, Explanation, Retrieval and Summary. You should be able to find everything that you need to answer a question within the text. I might mix the order up, so for example might come before V sometimes. Remember to answer in full sentences! The children have all done this before so should be expert at it! However if you have any questions please let me kn

In Peace Class, we are continuing to develop our learning skills to become more independent and resilient in our learning. This includes using the 3B4ME approach, where we take three steps before asking an adult for help:

1) Brain - we think a bit harder and think through previous learning to see if that can support us.

2) Book/blocks - we make sensible choices about resources in the classroom that may help us.

3) Buddy - we ask a buddy to help to explain the concept that we are stuck on.

School Closure - Learning provision


Please see the attached document for Reading. I hope you are enjoying Goodnight Mr Tom!

You do not have to complete the whole document in one go. I would suggest that you read the chapter on Monday and then do one or two sections of VIPERS per day.


This week I am giving you some story writing to do. Remember to try to use all that we have learned this year such as: using clauses, drop in, subordinating or coordinating; adverbs and adverbial phrases; adjectives; expanded noun phrases; modal verbs; using commas for clarity; exclamation marks; parenthesis [--,,()]; punctuation for speech... ellipses. Think about DADWAVERS!

I am sure that the list above is not complete. There will be a story each day to start. I am not asking you to complete the story but just to write the opening. It might be that you do an really detailed character or setting description, or get straight into the action, your choice. Each day there will be an image, a story starter to help you get started and sometimes some questions that you could think about to help your narrative.

Keep these story beginnings safe as you will need them for the following (and last!) week of term.


So, today is the second day of the consolidation work.

This is about addition and subtraction. I have left yesterday's consolidation work on the website for you. 

As I have said before there is a lot of work her and I do not expect you to finish it in one day, however if you can keep hold of these documents and it would do you no harm (indeed it will do you some good!) to keep going through them over the summer. This will help with your Y6 maths.

I know that some of you will have done some of this before, however please see if you can try this again.

The consolidation work consists of scenarios where you are given a situation and then some maths problems.

When you are doing the problem solving questions think about RUCSAC. Read the question. If you don't understand it, read it again. Think about what the answer will look like. Is it in metres? A fraction? A word? Understand what the question is asking you (underline the important information), Choose the operation you will need to use (sometimes you might have to use more than one operation), Solve the question (this means actually doing the calculations!), Answer the question (set it out so the answer can be found easily), Check! (Check the answer makes sense. Read the question again. Have you answered what you were asked?

Unfortunately our path has diverged from that of White Rose's so there is not a supporting film for you. If this changes I will put the link back here.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

I have put two extension tasks on as well as the VF and RPS. If you choose to do these then just choose three questions: either 1, 2, 3 or 4, 5, 6 or 7, 8, 9.

The second extension is more about problem solving and reasoning.

The answers to both extensions are available at the end of each document.



Topic is all about the sea this week. It all looks like fun and I would love to see some of your work (and I know Mrs Wilson loves seeing your work as well!)


I have now deleted the  Y3/4 and Y5/6 spelling lists from the National Curriculum. Please let me know if you would like these put back!
