Good Morning Year 5!

It is our last day of school before the summer holidays. I know it has been a very strange end to our Year 5 journey together. As we watched the pandemic unfold in China on Newsround, we never thought it would have such an impact on our lives. However, you have grown, matured and thrived through a new style of learning. I am proud of you all. I am very excited that I can continue with you on your finally learning journey at OLSJ. I can not wait to see what Year 6 brings for us.

I hope you and your families have a fantastic summer. I can not wait for September when our school community can learn together.

Take care and stay safe

Good Morning Year 5

It has been so lovely to recieve your 'the pieces of my heart'. I have enjoyed reading about the different things you love.

I can not believe we only have two days left. This year feels like it has gone by so quick. 

It has been a very strange end to our year. Normally we would all gather in the hall and celebrate the learning journey of Year 6. Unfortunately, we can not do it this year. However, we can do it virtually :) ! The link below allows you to watch the video. We have enjoyed watching it.  It works better on a computer.


Secondly, some people were able to make a Rainbow Film for all of us to share!

Over the Rainbow

I hope you all have a fab Wednesday.

Good Morning Year 5 

I hope you all had a fab start to the week. I still can not believe this is our last week in Year 5. I am excited to see what Year 6 brings. I know you will be excellent role models to the rest of the school. I have had a sneaky peak at the Passing On of the candle video. It brought a tear to my eyes.

Don't forget to try the series of live challenges to test all the history knowledge you've acquired this term. 

Choose your favourite, or why not try every single one? All the links to the quizzes are listed below. Here are the links... 

The Geography of Egypt!

Chronology Quiz!

Howard Carter and King Tut quiz!

Ancient Egyptian Civilisation

Egyptian Gods and Goddesses

The after-life

Good morning Year 5! I hope you all had a restful weekend and welcome back to our final week of home learning. It seems like we’ve been doing this for some time now and I am so impressed with how quickly you have adapted to this new style of learning.

I really enjoyed seeing many of you last week and can’t wait to see you all back at school in September. To help us start thinking about returning to school, I have planned some transition activities for you to try at home. Instead of Literacy this week, I would like you to complete some of the transition tasks on the suggested timetable. You may want to complete all of the activities, or just select your favourite – the choice is yours. Any resources you may need, you will find in the transition folder at the bottom of our class blog page or in your plastic wallets you took home.

Maths - White Rose Week 11 & 12 

Reading - Bedrock & own choice of stories

Topic - What did Ancient Egypt have in common with other civilizations from that time?

Our class e mail address is: y5@olsj.org.uk and I will be available from 8am-4pm Monday-Thursday. There may be a slight delay in a reply back as I am in school full-time now. Please get in touch with your questions, pictures and your general updates of how you are getting on. You know I love receiving your emails.You will find all the videos and resources in the parents folder at the very bottom of our class blog page.


Our Kahoot was exceptionally popular last week with over 100 players!

Here was the final leader board. Well done to Megan and Joe for finishing in the top 10!

Have a great week and I shall look forward to hearing from you all.

Miss Allen :)
