Literacy Homework, 10.1.2020

This week we have started our new topic of the Maya and are reading The Rainplayer.

In the book, Pik plays a game of Pok-a-Tok (a sport similar to football or basketball).

For homework, children are to research the game and create a detailed information poster about how to play.

Children need to include background information, how to play, the rules, the prizes and penalties and any facts they feel are relevant.

Posters should be completed on plain paper and could include pictures or illustrations.

Literacy Homework 13.12.19

This week in year five we have been writing a biography for Katherine Johnson. Katherine Johnson is an American mathematician who worked for NASA and played a vital role in the success of first spaceflights. We spent a lot of time discussing why Katherine Johnson is so special. The children can tell you how important her work was,  not only for NASA but for women in Science and Maths.

For homework, we would like the children to research a person linked to space and our understanding of our solar system. Children should gather enough research to write a biography on Monday.

Homework 6.9.19


For homework this week, the children have been asked to produce a piece of writing applying for a position of additional responsibility. This could be School Council, Eco Rep or another area where they feel they would shine.


The children should write why they feel they would be suitable for the role. They might choose to include what it means to them, what they have enjoyed at school so far and why this role is important.


We look forward to reading them on Wednesday!


Welcome to Year 5


Welcome to the Year 5 class page.
