Week commencing: Monday 18th May

Welcome to our home year 5 home learning page - please continue to send any queries, questions and examples of work through to us - email address is still


We are already over half way through the month of May and approaching May half term - a half term unlike any before. Hopefully you have been able to get out and about last week with the government allowing as much exercise as possible to take place each day. 

I have to say a quick thank you to those of you that have emailed messages through about Ms Potter/Mrs Reynolds. These messages of support to the team at Moorlands have made a difficult week last week a little easier for us all and we appreciate the support in what is a challenging time. 

Please read below for this weeks updates:

*UPDATED - For something a bit different* - Why not take a 360 degree tour of an Egyptian tomb?

*NEW - 60 SECOND READS* - Read a text for 60 seconds and answer some quick fire questions. There is one a day and they are all based on the ancient greeks.

*NEW - Can you take on the challenge to be a glass guardian?* - Find out all about how to become a glass guardian. Why not enter the competition as well? All the details are below.


*Writing a lockdown letter* - We've kept this writing task UNTI L WEDNESDAY. We have received lots of letters so far. If you haven't had the chance, please send these through and we will be uploading these to the web page soon. If you've written a letter already, can you write to someone else? A new writing task will launch Wednesday morning.....

*FOXES CLASS* - Have you been able to check out the links below from last week? If you haven't click on through and see what the fuss is all about!

Look forward to continuing to hear from you all throughout the week. Stay safe and well.


Please note, school is open during May half term where Mr Turner will be in school. This may mean any emails sent through take a little longer to reply to.

Thank you,

Mr Turner & Mr Curtis
