Please remember that Mr Jackson, Mr Mann and Mrs Duckett are teaching their classes, so we may not be able to respond immediately - but will get back to you! 

Don't forget to use the Accelerated reader quizes:

Throughout the term we are looking at materials and their properties. We would like you to investigate irreversible changes. Here is a link to the BBC Bitesize to give you some information to get you started –

We would like you to create a poster to show others what you have found out, try to include some examples of irreversible changes.


Lesson 1:

Taking inspiration from images by Charles Keeping we would like you to have a go at drawing a scene from the Highwayman. Draw in pencil and try and create the shading effect using the methods taught earlier in the year (Hatching, cross hatching, random hatching and stippling).

Lesson 2:

When you look closely at the Charles Keeping art, it looks like he has used a fine line pen to create his illustrations. For this second session we would like you to have a go at creating another piece of art, this time we would like you to use a different medium (eg: Biro, fine line pen, charcoal or chalk) to draw another scene from the story. See if you can use shading to build an effect in the image.


Another text we are looking at this term is ‘The Lady of Shalott’ by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. We have attached a copy of the text here:TheLadyofShalottpoem.docx Here are two drama lessons linked to this text created by Oak National.

Lesson 1

Lesson 2


Using an old shoe box, can you create a scene from The Highwayman. Feel free to use a variety of materials and be as creative as you can. This activity is likely to take you a couple of afternoons, so take your time and make your model as amazing as possible.



Just because you are in isolation doesn’t mean you can’t keep active. There are plenty of online activates that we have shared throughout lockdown that you can continue to do, maybe you can get people at home involved too.  Try to do at least one session per week.

We appreciate that over the last few months, things have been a real challenge for you all. For your PSHE we would like you to have a go at the Wellbeing Journals attached. You can dip into these once or you could complete them every day if it helps. We hope that these activities will help to give your day structure and routine:






Extra Information - Learning Apps

In addition to the lessons and activities prepared by your teachers, all children have unlimited access to a number of learning apps. In Year 5 these apps are:

DoodleMaths & DoodleTables

Edshed (Spelling Shed)

You should have logins for all three of these sites, and you will be used to using them at school. Try to use them daily to help improve your Maths and Spelling skills. They are all free to use and work on pretty much any online device - including many mobile phones. 

If you have any problems logging on, please either contact your class teacher via the class email address or contact Silverdale tech support at:
