You have all been up to some amazing work! 

Isabelle has been working on her Ancient Greece topic and has built a Greek house, complete with working doors. Chloe has been super excited by the Ancient Greek Olympics and has created a wonderful fact file with some amazing pictures of her demonstrating the sports. Chloe was also lucky enough to visit the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic games when she was just 2 and a half years old. She seems to be having a ball! 

Keep sending in your pictures of what you have been up to!

Information about new learning packs

Just to clarify, the expectations are NOT for children to complete the books as soon as possible. We will assign tasks each week from each book, which we will then go over and give answers on Friday afternoons and Monday mornings. This way the children can ask questions in real time and be given support within a matter of days for each section. We understand that it might be tricky to complete work on some days, which is why we will be assigning tasks for the entire week. Tasks assigned from the new learning packs should be prioritised above any additional learning that is posted on the class page.t We hope this clears things up. 

Miss Sheikh and Ms Evans

Welcome to Summer term year 5. How was your break? We hope you stayed safe, hope to see you all soon! 

Tuesday 9th June

Monday 8th June 

Hello everyone! We had a lovely week last week where we phoned all of your parents to see how you were getting on. Unfortunately there were a couple of you who we couldn't get through to, if your parents didn't get a phone call please email us and we will try again as soon as possible. 

Sounds like a lot of you have been up to some wonderful stuff! 

Today we (Ms Evans, Miss Sheikh and Ms Budd) will be popping round to your houses to bring you some new learning packs. There is a letter in each pack explaining the expectations. From next week, the layout of the work on this web page might look a little different but it will all be explained as clearly as possible. 

If you have any questions, please let us know, we answer all emails which you send, but your parents can also phone through the school phone number to speak to us. 


Today your lesson is on decimals as fractions, you were all amazing at this when we learned it in class, so lets see how you get on today!

Learning packs...coming to you soon!

We know it can be a nightmare or sometimes just not possible to print out the worksheets we post on the website, but you don't actually need to. Below are some examples of ways you can answer the maths and guided reading without printing the worksheets. Alternatively, you can write the answers on plain paper and if you want to send it to us, take a picture of your work and email it through. We know it is tricky to not have all the resources and we want to make it as easy for you as possible. This is the reason why we have also made individual book packs (see above!). This way you have the resources you need to complete some essential work to ensure you are ready for year 6 in September. If you have any questions, please email us at: oakhomelearning@gmail.com or phone the school office.

Doesn't suit you? How about try a writing activity using this video: https://www.literacyshed.com/oktapodi.html 

It is a little bit silly and a little bit funny and I think that is what we all need right now!

Writing suggestions: 

  • Retell the narrative using rich description and vivid imagery. 
  • Write a dialogue between the two octopi at various points throughout.
  • Discuss what is going to happen to each of the octopi.
  • Write alternative endings to the story.  
  • Write stories with flashbacks, perhaps the octopus wakes up in the truck and a flash back takes place remembering the tank


You can continue the spelling frame website but I think we have gone through all the sections on that. 

I think we will do 2 new spelling lists a week where you can practise them like you might do in school: write sentences, find the definitions, make your own word search or another method you find interesting. I could also post word searches if that is something you'd like.
