Y5 Scarbrough

Summer Term 2021


I hope you have all had a very hoppy Easter, and are ready to come back to school for a really exciting term.


We will be travelling back in time to the land of the Ancient Egyptians this term. On Tuesday 13th April we will launch our topic with an amazing Egyptian Day during which we will get to grips with Egyptian artefacts, play Egyptian games and of course, witness a real life mummification. smiley


Our Science topic this term is Materials, and will be taught by Mrs Allen on a Monday afternoon. She has loads of interesting experiments ready for you to tackle.


As we missed our Circle of Life science topic, we will also be touching on this later in the term. (I was not going to miss the opportunity to hatch butterflies!)


PE for Scarbrough class is on Mondays and Fridays. Please make sure you have both outdoor and indoor kits in school every week.


We look forward to a more normal summer term. ( However, it is currently snowing ... so who knows!! )

Hello again Home Learners. Hope you all enjoyed the snow! Thank you to those who sent me pictures - I will try and add them to our webpage tomorrow.


I look forward to seeing you all again on Teams at 11.30. (also any random dogs, cats, parents and siblings who happen to be joining us as well! wink)


Maths is a bit different this week - we are giving Mr Whitehead a week off while we practice what he has been teaching us.

Worksheets for each day will be in 'ASSIGNMENTS' on Teams (I can show you on Monday). I will also email them to parents. Hopefully I will link them below as well.


Don't forget to keep sending me some of your work. I need to know that you are working hard.


Still missing you all.

Art – Peter Thorpe

Draw a simple pencil sketch of a space rocket, then add a corner of sun at the top of your paper in yellow. Continue using your yellow – think about where the light will be shining on the rocket – shade the edges with yellow. The rest of the rocket would be in darkness, so you can add pencil shading to darken it.

Please send me a pic of your sunlit rocket.

Remote Learning


Following school closures, we have decided to make the children’s learning experience streamlined and as simplistic as possible. Therefore we will ensure that we upload content ready for Monday mornings. The Government advice is that primary schools should have approximately three hours of work per day. With this in mind, St Mary’s will concentrate on at least three areas of study per day which will vary from year group to year group and may change each week.

The work will begin from tomorrow.


To supplement your child’s learning, we will be offering CGP books at a significantly discounted price which the office will need to know by Friday the 8th January. These books have been handpicked by the teachers in order to best support the needs of the children. These are available via the school office.


Books for Year 5

Science Topic Book - Space      (codeS5C22)   £1.25

Y5 SPaG Book                         (code E5W22) £3.60


In addition, in Year Five we will be reading George's Secret Key to the Universe by Stephen Hawking. You might like to buy this book and read it with your child as it links perfectly with our space topic.


Should you have any further questions or concerns, please contact your class teacher through their regular Gmail address.

Happy Learning
