Welcome back to the start of term, although it may not quite feel like it as we are not able to all be together!  However, I hope everyone is well.  I thought I would update this page with a few more of your fabulous wellbeing ideas:


Hold a strength competition – who can hold the longest plank?

Have a board game night.

Create a new game for your family to play one evening.

Upcycle an old item – can you make it into something completely different or repair it so it is as good as new?

Make a list of any minibeasts you can find in your garden or when out for your daily exercise, what have you seen more of this spring/summer?

Write a nice note to a family member and hide it somewhere for them to find.

Teach your pets a new trick.


Also on Friday 23rd of April - Comic Relief and Children and Need are joining forces for a fundraising evening to support charities who are struggling at this time. The Big Night In will be on the BBC.


Are you a cub or a scout?  Could you hike to the moon as part of the fundraiser?

Hello Year 5, 

Last week we came up with lots of ideas to keep boredom away, so I am going to post some of them on here and update as we go through this time together  We had some fabulous suggestions and you may see at least one of them pop up in your activities for learning.


Year 5's boredom busters!

Make a cardboard box base, car or house and colour it

Have a pillow fight (probably not while your parents are trying to work)

Make a junk model instrument

Learn new songs or write your own

Create a self portrait

Learn to cook or bake something new 

Sketch something interesting that you can see from your window

Create a rainbow to put in your window to brighten everyone's spirits

Face time friends or family and catch up

(make sure you have permission and are using your staying safe online learning)!





There are lots of other fun activities popping up online for us whilst our school is closed.  

Remember we should only be online with parental permission and we need to use our 'staying safe online' learning!


PE with Joe Wicks on Youtube:

I am hoping that some of us have already taken part this week but it might be even nicer in the Easter Holidays as a whole family activity.  I enjoyed this week's exercises!


For the David Walliams fans, he is recording short readings for us!!    Every day at 11.00, there will be a new reading. smiley


For our Year 5 Strictly Fans, Oti Mabuse will be running dance classes daily at 11.30 on her YouTube channel.  If you can't join in at this time, it will stay on the site.  You can also learn any dance routine you may have already missed.     (The Jungle Book)


Calling all artists!  Jim Field is running tutorials for drawing.  Scroll down for any that you have missed.  Learn how to draw lots of different characters - you could even send your drawings into him!
