Y5 Scarbrough

Update : Wednesday 1st April


Many of our caterbabies have become chrysalises over the last few days. Strangely, mine has turned into a tadpole, which was quite unexpected. I don't think it is going to be very happy in its habitat - the water keeps running out.

Home Learning - School Closure


Please check here each Monday for a list of activities Y5 will be expected

to complete during the week.


Y5 Home Learning – 30th March – 3rd April

Hi Scarbrough Class,

Now that you all have your Purple Mash Logins, I am setting work for each day of the week on there. You can find your work in the 2do section. I can see your work and send you messages about what I think you could improve on.

Each day there will be:




Reading Quiz

Over the week there will be other activities to do as well. The days are a suggestion – if you want to do all your maths on a Monday while you are in the zone – that’s fine.


Remember that you also have your butterfly projects to work on. My caterbaby is HUGE now. I can’t believe that two weeks ago she was ¾ of a cm long.


Keeps sending me emails so that I know you are well and keeping safe.


There have been some lovely pictures sent to me which I will try and share later.

I am missing you all so much.             Hope to see you soon.


                                                    Mrs B x

Early Learners Work: Please email completed work to the class email (above) and Mrs. Houghton will keep an eye out for it!

We used Oreo cookies to represent the phases of the moon. (We ate a few as well!)

Happy New Year



Scarbrough class have LAUNCHED off into space for this half term's topic

'What's it like in space?


We have a visiting planetarium coming to school on Tuesday 14th January, which we are very excited about. Look out for pictures coming soon.


Unfortunately we have had to say no to one child who was hoping that we could go on a class trip into space. The budget simply doesn't stretch that far. sad


Mrs B, Mr K & Miss S

To celebrate the end of a fantastic half term, we spent some time with our friends in Year One.

Our first visit to the library in Year Five went extremely well. We were praised on our amazing conduct, which made Mrs Buckle feel very proud.

Today's evacuation to Perlethorpe went extremely well. All children found a billet, although some were happier with their lodgings than others.

J   Welcome to Year Five  J


I hope you have had a wonderful and relaxing summer holiday and are ready to return to school refreshed and raring to go. Year 5 is a busy and exciting place to be. Fascinating topics, new experiences, challenges and opportunities await.


This year, Y5 will be supported by Mrs Houghton, Mr Kirtley and Miss Smith.


PE kit should be labeled and brought into school. Our PE session is on Wednesday, but other opportunities may arise.


Swimming lessons will take place on Thursday mornings. (Not week 1). Children need to bring swimming kit and a towel in a suitable bag each week please.


Homework will be set on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to complete this independently wherever possible and to seek help if required.


I’m looking forward to a brand new year. See you all soon.


 J  Mrs Buckle  J
