We serve god, when we work and play together

Year 5



Oh my word, hasn't the weather been GLORIOUS! I hope you have all been enjoying the weather safely and had plenty of sun cream on!

From this week, all your work for the week will be here on a Monday and the answers will be there for each day too. We are continuing our work on the Earth and Space and have just two RE topics left too. There will be plenty of art and DT projects to keep you busy.

Books have now been allocated on the Active Learn site, they are broadly in line with age related expectations and your child may have already read some of these through the scheme. I though they may be starting to run out of reading material now so have added them on.  


PLEASE NOTE: The links for the sound buttons for Cogheart may not work on a tablet. I will try and get them recorded and on to YouTube over the next few days. You do not need to hear the story to be able to complete the work, I just thought it might be nice to hear it read.


Please continue to share your work with us by the email address below and if you don't want it to go online, just drop that in your email. It has really cheered Mr Sellors and I up seeing all your lovely work and activities, we miss you all! Please remember, I'll check the emails daily through the week but I am trying to keep weekends strictly for family time. The email address is:


Stay safe, 

See you soon

Hello! Welcome to our 'virtual' classroom! Over the next few days, Mr Sellors and I will be putting on some different tasks for you to complete over the next few weeks. You can find already a list of useful links to sites which we have been using over the last few months. I'm really excited to add a music link too, there are a few different types of music program your little musician can follow, from singing to theory, from recorder to clarinet and from keyboard to guitar and violins. I will send the usernames and passwords out separately. I'm also going to get Mrs Fitz TV up and running so I can add suitable videos to support our home learning. Finally, I'm hoping to keep up with reading a class novel, we're currently reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe (we've just finished Kensuke's Kingdom) and

it would be great if you guys could join along. You can get it on Kindle for £1.99 or it's available on Amazon from £5.56. I will hopefully be reading it on YouTube (once Mrs Fitz TV is up and running!). Last but not least, the Briars team are producing their usual daily podcasts and I'd urge everyone to have a watch, they're often quite funny and ALWAYS informative and prayerful.

Take care and stay well.

God bless.

Mrs Fitzpatrick, Mr Sellors and the 5SF team.


PS, You will need to register for a FREE beta parent account for Classroom Secrets Kids. You can then access any of the resources I add from there. Sorry if you've not got on those so far, it's just been flagged with me! Mrs Fitz
