Key Stage 2 - Squirrel Class (Year 5) 2021 - 2022

Mr Dunning

Miss Evans


Welcome Squirrels

I have been so impressed with the remote learning you have all been completing at home! The children who are attending school have also been working extremely hard and we are equally as proud and impressed of all these children too. I am really pleased to see so many of you using your tablets from school well and engaging with lessons and other school work.

Remember, your daily lessons can be found on our Class Dojo class story. Each day, myself and Miss Lupton will be posting a reading, English and maths lesson for you to complete along with a video input. There will also be an afternoon activity depending on the day. I have attached a copy of the remote learning timetable that both year for classes follow below. Don't forget, when you have completed each activity, please send a copy of it over through the portfolio section. If you need any support accessing your Class Dojo account, or need any support with remote learning, please get in touch via our school contact email: Or drop me a message via the Class Dojo and I will do anything I can to help you. 


In maths, we will be focusing on multiplication and division. Times Tables are so important and they will definately help you with this maths focus! 

Here are some useful links including Times Tables Rock Stars! Why don't you challenge your friends or Miss Lupton and Mr Jenks to a Rock Battle?


Our new text is Escape to Pompeii. This is a lovely book and I am excited to share it with you as i have been lucky enough to go to Pompeii and visit mount Vesuvius! 

I know you are all really enjoying our current shared reading text 'Volcanos' so I'm sure you will enjoy this lovely, historical story as it involves the Great Mount Vesuvius erupting and destroying Pompeii. Could you complete some research about Mount Vesuvius? 

We will be working towards writing our own narrative based on this fantastic story!


Our science topic this half term is Animals Including Humans! I have attached a file below including some home learning activities linked to this topic. This can also be found on Class Dojo.
