Class 5


class5_bannerWelcome to Class 5. We are Year 5 and 6 children and Miss Randall is our teacher.

She is brilliantly supported by Mr Macklin and Mrs Arkwell-Smyth.

In Year 5 and 6 we work hard but make time for plenty of fun along the way…

In upper KS2 we learn to become much more responsible as we have a lot of important jobs to do to support the school. As well as setting up hall for assemblies, we run break and lunchtime fitness activities for the whole school and organise all the fruit, milk and recycling!

Year 6 are also brilliant buddies to our brand new reception children – we help them get the best start to their education and help them every step of the way.

Year 6 Home Learning 6th July

Hi Year 6, 

I’m sorry about posting this work up a little late – here are a few tasks to keep you busy this week. 

Reading Comprehension and questions about Mines:

Trimdon Grange Stage 5 Comp – Comprehension Pack

Mining Then and Now Stage 5 Comp – Comprehension Pack



What will schools look like in 2090? Will they be the same? Maybe teachers will no longer exist and students will be taught by robots or holograms! Will there be a need for paper and pens/pencils? Will everything be electronic? 

Your task is to write a letter to yourself from the future 2090 and explain how learning has changed.

Brainstorm all your ideas and really think about how things will be vastly different from how they are now. 

Here is a cool link to a YouTube clip with an idea of how things may look:

Have a nice week and see you all this week 🙂 


Year 4 and 5 Home Learning Pack: 6/7/2020

Hello Year 4 and 5,

It is hard to believe that we are now in July. I am really missing seeing everybody at school but I am hopeful that I will see some of you in the coming weeks for your transition sessions. As always, it is great to hear from some of you and I have even managed to see a few of you when dropping off your siblings at school, which is lovely.

Please remember that lots of people are finding this time at home difficult and have struggled to work from home; you are not the only one. Only do what feels right for you from these packs.


It would be great for you to create a poster, outlining everything you have learnt in SPaG in KS2 so far (Year 3, 4 and 5). You will be surprised by how much has been covered and all the new grammatical terms you have learned. This can be presented in any way you like but I would love to see example of each area. I will outline some examples below.

  • Prepositions- across, below, above etc.
  • Possessive apostrophes- Miss Randall’s bunny rabbit dug a hole in the garden.
  • Fronted adverbials- Suddenly, one cold morning, etc.



Once again, I will be adding the Talk for Writing home learning packs for year 4 and 5 for your English activities this week. I hope you are enjoying these and finding them manageable.




This week, I will be giving you work based on time. This is something that my class had not covered at school this year but they would have done work on this topic in previous years. There are many useful videos that I will link below to help you.

12 and 24 hour time harder

Converting Time to 24 Hour Clock and Back

Duration word problems

Read and Write the Time


A skill that children develop in years 4, 5 and 6, is using grid references on maps. I have added a 4 figure and 6-figure grid reference work sheet for you to work through. Remember, you must go along the corridor and up the stairs.

4 figure grid references


To get you thinking:

I have added a daily activity to get you thinking this week; it is something a little bit different but I hope it will give you a few minutes to reflect. Spend a few minutes thinking about the answer to the question being asked. Get creative, write your answer down and decorate it.


I hope you all have an enjoyable week,

Miss Glover



Home Learning Challenge

Home Learning Challenge

To help motivate your children for the last few weeks of term we have set up a home learning challenge. This is totally optional but we thought it might be useful for some of you. Here’s how it works:

  • Decide on daily home learning challenges for your child, this could be a certain number of tasks or an amount of time e.g. for a Reception child it could be to do the daily phonics lesson and one other task , or for an older child it could be to do 2 hours of home learning.
  • Use the attached reward chart to add smiley faces for each home learning challenge your child completes. There are six boxes for each day but you might not need all of these if you decided on a smaller number of daily challenges. If you decide on a time challenge (e.g. two hours per day) they could get a smiley face for each half hour of home learning successfully completed.
  •  If your child completes their task for the week upload a photo of the completed chart onto Tapestry and they will receive a certificate and a small reward in the post.
  • If your child completes a chart for the rest of term (3 weeks) they will receive a prize at the end.

Home Learning Pack (29/6/2020)

Hello year 4 and 5,

I hope lots of you took advantage of the glorious weather last week and spent some time in the sunshine. At school, the year 6s made their own obstacle course as a ‘mini sports day’, which we really enjoyed- maybe you could give this a go at home and get the family involved.


This week, I would like you to revise relative clauses. This is something that all the year 4s and 5s have covered multiple times so you should be able to do this without any problems. If you do need a reminder (parents too) I will add the link to the relative clause dance that we enjoy doing in class J

Once again, I will be adding the Talk for Writing home learning packs for year 4 and 5 for your English activities this week. I hope you are enjoying these and finding them manageable.




I know lots of people found the last two weeks of fraction work hard, it is a tricky subject with lots of objectives to cover so please don’t feel disheartened. I am hoping you will enjoy this maths topic a little more- data handling. We have covered data collection, bar charts, pictograms, line graphs and time charts. Therefore, I will add work that covers many of these areas for you to pick what suits you best.

In school, we collected our own data and made a variety of charts to represent it. Maybe you could give this a go at home.

Bar Charts

Line graph



Some people have mentioned that they are missing their art lesson and would like some ideas of creative things they can do at home. I have added a document that gives you a few projects and clips to explore all about ‘jungle leaves’ and Henri Rousseau (which I think some of you might have learnt about with Mrs D in year 3).



It is quite tricky to learn ‘new’ vocabulary in French at home, so I though you could have a go at unscrambling letters to make up names of pets. Enjoy!

Have a wonderful week,
