Year 5 Grey Squirrels 🦨

24th March 2021


Oh no! Here we are again- right before the holidays again!! What a shame for us all but of course, we must do our best to keep everyone safe. It goes without saying that we are gutted we won't be seeing you tomorrow morning! 


Just like before, we will upload all of the work onto these pages and we will be monitoring our emails as before.


We cannot wait to see your emails coming in and to see what you get up to. We already know how fantastic you are but now really is the time to prove it. Work hard over the next week and then you will have 2 weeks of well deserved rest.


See you all again soon! 


Love Miss Devlin and Mrs Allsopp xx


2021 Lockdown 


We are absolutely gutted about the announcement last night- we would much rather be in school with you, but we must do what is best for keeping everyone safe! As you know, we had lots of exciting things planned to look forward to, but for now, we will put it all on hold. We hope to continue with our Wow Day when we eventually return to school so keep your costume nice and safe!! We will upload work onto here for you to complete every day. Each day you must complete the Maths, English, Guided Reading and some Topic/afternoon work. Please send all of your work in daily so that we can give appropriate feedback. All year 5 members of staff will be contactable via the year group email:


We will monitor this email and respond between 8:30am and 3:30pm. Please send any completed work or any questions to this email address. We know it is hard but it is really important you complete this work- it will all be worth it in the end! 


Keep smiling and stay safe.

Our Teams Meeting are every Monday and Thursday at 9.30am.

Week 8

1st March


Well, here we are at last! The final week of lockdown for schools- yipee.

We are so excited about having you all back and being able to see you face-to-face.

There are lots of exciting things for you to do this week as you get ready to return. 

Try really hard to complete this final week's work and try and get yourself in to some kind of routine in preparation for coming back to school (some early nights for me I think).

So, one last push before we all come back together again. The sun is shining and we can se the light at the end of tunnel.

Work hard and hopefully the week will go quickly and Monday 8th March will be here before we know it.

Take care and can't wait to see you all.

Miss Devlin and Mrs Allsopp.

Week 7 

22nd February 2021


We hope you have had a relaxing half term! Whilst there's so many things we still can't do, we were lucky enough to have a few sunny days to remind us that spring is just around the corner! The evenings are definitely getting lighter and the temperature is slowly increasing! We are all hoping that remote learning will be a thing of the past very soon so let's do our very best to produce some work to be proud of this week in the hope that we will be back in school in the not so distant future! Looking forward to seeing you on our usual Teams Meeting at 9.30am today (Monday) and Thursday. Don't forget to get thinking about what we can do as a year group for World Book Day next week - you can email in any ideas to the usual email address -


Have a good week, smiley

Week 6

8th February 2021


We've reached week 6 - I'm sure you're ready for a rest! Half-term is just around the corner, so give it one last push to get through this week's work and then you can enjoy  a restful week. Hopefully it won't be too long before we get a firm date for when you can all come back and join us in school. It's very strange being there with just a few of you in class - it just doesn't feel right. We're really looking forward to you all coming back and having a good catch up.

Until then, keep sending your work in for us to look at but most of all, keep yourselves and your families safe.

Have a look at this little story, called Lucy's in lockdown. Her hair changes colour based on how she is feeling during lockdown! It is a lovely little story and one that I am sure some of you can relate to. It is not very long so make sure you have a read through!

Week 5

1st February 2021


Well here we are in February!! We really enjoyed seeing you on our Teams Meeting last week. So much so, we have added in an extra meeting! From TODAY (MONDAY 1st FEBRUARY) we are going to be meeting every Monday at 9.30am to go through what you will be learning during the week, in addition to the meetings every Thursday at 1pm. 


Hope you enjoy the lessons we've planned for this week. After this week is done there is only one more week until half term and you can enjoy a well-earned rest so let's keep up the hard work and keep trying your very best with your home learning. We are already looking forward to seeing the marvellous work you will be sending to us this week.


Take care, keep safe and keep smiling!

Week 4

25th January 2021

Hey everyone. Here we go for another week.

We hope you are all keeping safe and well.

It's great to see how many of you are completing your work and sending it in for us. It's really nice to receive the work and messages from you all - not as good as seeing you all everyday but we are making the best of a difficult situation.

I know it is hard to motivate yourselves some days (we find it tricky sometimes too) but keep on trying and doing the best you can. 

Do keep sending your work and also let us know of anything else that you have been doing.

Missing you all and hopefully it won't be too long before we can be back together.

Week 3 of Lockdown (week beginning 18th January)


Hello everyone,

Hope you are all keeping safe and well! Did you enjoy the snow this week? There was finally enough to build a snowman with! A big well done to all of the children who worked their socks off last week! We were super impressed with the work you are sending in every day. Some of your work is on display in the "Completed work" folder on this page so make sure you have a look and see if you can spot some of your work on there! 

This week, in English and Guided Reading, we are starting to look at the book Charlotte's Web and we will also be continuing with our minibeasts topic. Hope you enjoy this week's work and remember to keep sending your work in every day to

Take care and keep smiling :-)

It’s so important whilst you’re at home to keep reading! Read anything you can get your hands on. We understand that it might be difficult to find new reading material at the moment with libraries and bookshops being closed. If you don’t have many books to read, here are a couple of links for e-books which you may wish to investigate further.


It also looks like Oak National are offering a different book each week. This week, you can watch a video from Jacqueline Wilson and read The Story of Tracy Beaker- there are also some optional activities for you to complete. 

Update- 10th January


Hello grey squirrels! I hope you are now settling into home learning and getting into some sort of routine. Some of the work you have been sending in is fantastic! We have really enjoyed looking at it. Please remember that the work is compulsory and must be completed. 


As of Monday (11th Jan) please send your completed work daily so that we can check you are on the right track and give you any guidance before the next lesson if it looks like you need it. This also helps us to update our records on a daily basis so we can see who has done what on each day.


Keep up the hard work, we have loved looking at what you are completing. I know it seems like the journey ahead may be long, but we are really proud of the work you have completed so far! Keep it up! laugh


Just as an extra note, for those of you struggling to send your work in, there is a way to scan it in from your phone. I know this works for iPhones but I am not sure about other phones. If you open up your Notes app and open a new notes page. Select the camera symbol from the tool bar along the bottom and then select scan documents. This will enable you to scan any completed work. From there, select share in the top right corner and from there you can email it to us!


Hello year 5! That was a little bit of a surprise this afternoon! I trust that you are now settled at home and working on your booklet! Don't forget your two jobs for this afternoon; your Christmas booklets and Prodigy. If any of you have misplaced or forgotten your log in information then please send me an email.


As I said to you earlier, it is better to be safe than sorry and the best way you can all keep yourselves and your families safe is to stay at home. It is a real shame that we won't get to spend the rest of the week in school together but I know you can take care of yourselves at home. The Christmas holidays will soon be here and we will soon be back at school together in January! The school is still open for other children and I have explained that you will all be expected to complete the work that is set and I can't wait to see what you can achieve in these few days.


If any of you need anything at all, then please e-mail

Please don't be afraid to e-mail with any questions you have, any work you want to share or any photos of what you have achieved and been up to!


We will update the Home Learning pages with your work for the next few days and explain what you need to do, but you have got everything you need for now. 

Take care of yourselves!

Love Miss Devlin and Mrs Allsopp x

Click on the icons below to find the work set for each day! If you have any problems, questions or completed work to send in then please do so! If you are unable to print the work off, then it should be completed on paper. Have fun! 

Magnus Academy 6th Form Panto


Here is this year's panto from Magnus. Their sixth form students decided they still wanted to do something even though they couldn't come in to school for us all to watch. It is based on the tale of Red Riding Hood and the script, costumes and editing has all been done by the students. What a great way to get into the Christmas spirit! You should definitely give it a watch!

Red Riding Hood Pantomime

Here is the link for the online Advent Calendar that we took part in! I think we made it to opening day 16. You could carry on watching them at home.  If you would like to show your grown ups our video, it was on day 15.


Look what we have been up to!

Merry Christmas!!!


You have worked so hard this half term and we have been so so busy! We really hope that all of you enjoy your break and make the most of your time off- you deserve a rest! We are missing you already and cannot wait to see you all again in January, ready for another fun-filled half term. Look after yourselves and your families and stay safe!


Love from Miss Devlin and Mrs Allsopp x

A quick Christmas message from us!
