Year 5

This week I have decided not to place a game on purple mash for you to practise to give us a little break from using technology to complete our work. I would like you to use the methods that I posted onto the blog last week to support your learning.


Children I have been blown away by the responses that I have received for your English work, you have crafted some amazing pieces of work. Today, we will be carrying out part B of our lesson from Thursday (hopefully you kept hold of your resources from Thursday as they will prove to be useful!).

Please start by watching the short video blow:


In maths we are going to continue our work on shape with the hope that we will get it completed prior to returning to school next week.

Year 4

In this lesson, you will be revising the names of different types of 2D shapes. Please follow the link below:

As always I have posted copies of the activities onto Seesaw.

Year 5

In this lesson, we will be learning to describe the properties of diagonals of quadrilaterals. Please follow the link below:

As always I have posted copies of the activities onto Seesaw.


In our IT lesson today we are going to continue our work on animation, but this time we are going to be learning all about onion skinning! Check out my video below for a detailed explanation:


For our theme session today we are going to be learning about what made the vikings so successful as raiders and pillagers. The session is going to entail watching a couple of video clips and reading prior to then completing a creative activity which will blend your learning.

In summary Viking success was, largely, down to two things: their skill at building ships and their fearsome warrior culture.

What did you think to the video, children? I’m not sure that I would have made a very good viking, I wouldn’t be able play golf or pop to Marks and Spencer for snacks when I’m hungry. Anyway…I think you would have been much for successful, I would now like you to have a read through the information on the BBC bitesize website:

BBC Breaking News (@BBCBreaking) | Twitter


Create a poster warning local Anglo-Saxons of Viking raids. Information could include how to tell if you are about to be raided (for example, boats sighted on the horizon) and what to do in the event of a raid (for example, sound the alarm or run for the hills).

What I am looking for:

  1. Use of the full page
  2. Headings
  3. Subheadings
  4. Bullet points
  5. Viking inspired pictures.

Extension Activity

In characters as monks, write a letter to a friend or maybe even King Elthlred (asking him to send help) describing the Viking raid on Lindisfarne.

What I am looking for:

  1. Description of the event (utilise the resources above to help).
  2. Tell me what you hope will happen next.
  3. Tell me what you fear will actually happen next.
  4. Tell me who you think is responsible for the attack.
  5. Tell me what you think should be done about the attack.
