Monday, 6th July, 8:00 AM

Good Morning Year 5!

We hope you are all okay and that you are keeping safe and well. Can’t believe we only have two more weeks of this academic year left.

We hope that you enjoyed the work from last week. Lots of you took part in the ‘Blue Planet Live’ lesson, as well as researching different species whales. Many of you have also been working hard on your maths and completing the maths mystery packs.

Congratulations to all the children who took part in the Silverdale Virtual Sports Day. Although very different to our usual event, the children of the academy once again showed that Covid was not going to stop them giving it a go!

On a slightly different not, just a reminder that if you have not e-mailed your application for Head boy/ girl or prefect in yet, they need to be with your class teacher by the end of today (Monday 6th July).

Here are DM and SS results as they stand at the beginning of the week:

Spelling Shed - Well done to Nightingale class who are in the lead with 31,837,571 points. 

Nelson are in 2nd place with 21,004,281 points and Churchill are in 3rd  place with 16,754879 points.

Doodle Maths - Nightingale have now taken the lead with the most amount of stars earned in the last 7 days

(Nightingale 1345, Churchill have 1162 stars and Nelson have 801 stars)

Nightingale are in the lead with the percentage of children that are on target standing at 30%.

Active Sussex Games: This week the sport is…

As always the challenges will be released today, so make sure you checkout the Active Susses Games website to find out more and log your scores -

Now for this week’s book:


As many of you will have already read this book you will know that it is longer than the other books we have been looking at.

We have attached a video which gives you a brief overview of the story:


Because of the length of it we can’t upload a copy. However, we have found the whole book being read on YouTube – be warned it is just over 3 hours long!

At the bottom of the blog we have uploaded this week’s medley as well as two more maths mysteries.

As always here are our email addresses if you need to ask any questions or just fancy saying hi!

We miss you lots -  

Miss Chad, Mr Jackson and Mrs Duckett
