Week 7 learning

Wow, it’s the last week of term! This last term has really flown by so quickly and we can’t believe that you’re now in the last week of Year 5.

Well done for all the effort that you have put into your home learning. We know it hasn’t been easy for you (or your grown ups at home!) but the work that we have seen on here has been brilliant 🙂

It would be a good idea to keep going with some learning over the holidays so that you are ready for Year 6 in September. Knowing your spellings from the Year 5/6 word list and your times tables are really important so keep on practising those.

English – Writing

Look back at last week’s blog post –https://blog.highfield.bolton.sch.uk/hly5/2020/07/06/week-6-learning-2/ and finish writing your persuasive letter for something you really want!


Have a go at this reading lesson based on the book The Extraordinary Life of Katherine Johnson by Devika Jina. There are 3 activities to do.



The last 3 decimals lessons are sequencing then multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. Remember we have done this a lot in CLIC 🙂 Draw a place value grid to help you. Move the number to the left if multiplying and to the right if dividing. The number of zeros tells you how many places to move the number.

This week is your last portrait…you as an adult! Melissa used an app to age a photo of herself and then she drew her portrait from that – it was brilliant! Or you could just use your imagination 🙂


Now it’s time to put all of your Excel knowledge in one place! Write (or type) a guide on how to create a spreadsheet for someone who has never used Microsoft Excel before. Think about the key vocabulary that you will need to explain. Use the power point on previous week’s blog posts to help you.


Bolton Music Service have a range of videos and activities for you to watch and take part in. Choose some that you fancy! You could carry on doing these over summer 🙂

Keep your eyes peeled for another blog post coming this week 🙂
