Hi Woodpeckers,

we are now entering our last full week of term time, so I will set work that will keep you busy until we break up and this will be the last time that I update the page, this academic year. I hope that you've all managed to enjoy the lovely weather this weekend and got involved with last week's challenge. A new one will be posted tomorrow.

For English and Maths this week, please continue to use BBC Bitesize's daily lessons, or The Oak Academy website. You are all in different routines, so choose whichever one works best for you.

I've been thinking about Topic this week and would like you to research Jane Goodall, plus one other person who works closely with nature (for example, David Attenborough, Steve Irwin, Timothy Treadwell, Jacques Cousteau).

1. Research their work and make notes.

2. Write a non-choronological report about both of the people that you have chosen. 

3. Include pictures in your report

Other things that you can try:- 

  • Complete the worksheet on Jane Goodall
  • Write a diary entry as if you have been observing an animal (of your choice) for 3 days
  • Complete the Jane Goodall reading comprehension
  • Draw a detailed sketch of an animal
  • Complete the Jane Goodall question and answer sheet


I know that your school reports were sent home last week and that you are due to receive them soon. I am so proud of all of your achievements this year and can't wait to see you back at school in September. If you have any questions about your report, I am very happy to talk things through with you. If this is the case, please email me at and I will call you back as soon as I am able to.

I hope that you enjoy the tasks this week and wish you all a happy and safe summer holiday.

See you in September,

Mrs M smiley

Exercise challenge winners

Well done to the following people for their amazing efforts with the exercise challenge:-

                Maisie for doing nearly 90,000 steps last week!! An incredible effort.

                Chloe for doing a great job with learning a new skill and for sharing her skipping pictures with us.

                Jemima for setting herself a daily running and trampolining challenge, which she completed every morning before                                          doing her school work and then added cycling to her routine during the week.

                Timmy for designing an obstacle course for himself, doing a huge cycle ride and also horse riding.



Hi Woodpeckers,

I hope that you all had a good week last week. I would like Year 5's to continue with the usual routine for English and Maths - a mixture of reading, spelling, times tables, BBC Bitesize, or Oak Academy. If you choose BBC Bitesize, please go on to the daily lesson as we have been doing

If you prefer The Oak Academy area, use the following link scroll down to 'balanced argument' and complete the 5 lessons in this section. For Maths use this link and finish the section 'Calculating with whole numbers and decimals' that you started last week (lessons 6-10).


For Topic (Yr 4 & 5), we will be focusing more on the Eco side of the things. Here are the activities that you can work through:-

  1. Reading comprehension sheet
  2. Scavenger hunt worksheet
  3. Imagine that you are taking a trip to the beach (following on from last week's work) and design and write a postcard telling me about your trip (link it with wildlife, coastlines and pollution)
  4. Complete the recycling poster worksheet
  5. 5 ways to help the earth writing frame worksheet - you can then extend this into a piece of writing if you wish
  6. Complete the wordsearch
  7. My ideas to tackle global warming worksheet


I hope that you enjoy working through these tasks.

Keep in touch and let me know how you get on.
