Year 5

Welcome to Year 5



Week 2 of school closure. I will continue to upload your daily tasks and links on this page.


Below is the link to an instructional video showing how to access OneNote and also a link to Youtube which Mrs Bain, Year 6 teacher at White Waltham, has very kindly shared with us. It is a guide to using OneNote to access and complete work. Obviously Mrs Bain has recorded this for her class and some of her information is directed at them but it gives clear instructions on how to use it (I will learn how to create my own films, just need time to do so!)




Look out for this weeks' invitation for a zoom meeting with me for either Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. Please note this is just once a week and takes place of the phone calls we made during the last lockdown.


Any problems at all please email or phone the school and I will help as quickly as I can. Keep safe everyone.

Star of the week

Well done to everyone for sending your work in. I was so impressed with all of you this week. In particular Noah - he is my first Star of the Week for 2021 for some incredible work; in particular building his own webpage. Well done Noah! I know everyone will be so pleased for you.



Eisteddfod 2021

At the moment we are still planning to go ahead with this year's competition.


This year we will continue to run our annual Eisteddfod, performance poetry competition. Children should choose a poem to learn by heart and practice performing this, using a loud, clear voice, expression and with gestures and actions if possible. We have provided some suggested poems based on our Spring term topic which you can use, or you are free to choose your own poem of a similar length (or children may write their own poem!) 

Class rounds will be held on 12th February, where all children will have the opportunity to perform their poem to the class. Winners will be selected and put forwards to the final which will be held on 4th March. If the COVID situation has not improved by then, we will use zoom for the finals.
