Class Teacher: Mr. Baxter

Summer Term - 2020


I hope you are all happy and healthy. 


This term our topic was to be Vikings and Anglo Saxons. We would have supported this through many different subjects.


In English, we would have completed our own autobiographies.  There is a lock-down diary in the packs in the reception area at school which will support this.  In Science, we would be studying electrical circuits.  In Maths, we would still like to be making great efforts to develop instant recall of all times tables (go to Times Tables Rockstars online) and cover fractions as well as exploring 3D shapes, converting between units of measure (cm-m, seconds-minutes, mls-litres etc…) and measuring area or volume. 


Home Learning:


I am always willing to help children if they are stuck on their home learning.  All they have to do is to ask for this help!  Children should read at least 5 times a week for at least ten minutes. 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.


The above is what we would have hoped to have covered under different circumstances.  I will do my best to send/post activities that will support this.  I would encourage you to pick up learning packs from the reception area in school and would be delighted to hear from your children via email (  I have to date posted three weeks’ worth of activities on the Y5 page here.  Please work through these at your own pace.  I am always available to help or support children who have any questions or problems with this – just email me.  The BBC are putting up some great stuff on their Bitesize pages which I would encourage you to make use of (  Accelerated Reader have texts to read online and you can quiz from home.  If you have any trouble logging on please get in touch.  But most of all, please stay safe and take the meaning from this amazing post found online:

Kindest Regards,

Mr B.

Don't forget to pick up your Learning Pack from the reception area at school.
