Samuel, Jamie, Anya and Martha

What a strange half term it has been! I am so proud of the way you have all been working. It’s been so lovely to be able to share some of the fantastic work that has been done over the last 5 weeks. Here are a few photos sent in from Samuel, Jamie, Anya and Martha. Thankyou for sharing.


Samuel has been writing about Olivander’s wand shop and also has his own wand! He has been looking at some of the BBC Bitesize online lessons and it looks like he has set up his front room into a classroom. Well done Samuel.

Week beg 18.5.20

How did you get on with the bird watching last week? Did anyone see anything unusual in their garden? I can’t believe we are nearly at half term already. It has been a strange couple of months.

Google Drive

Here is the link to this week’s google drive.

Maths continues to follow the White Rose Hub and some 3D shape work from the CGP book on Friday. English involves some diary writing using the CGP books and some clips about children living in Kenya. I have also included a PSHE sheet to do if you want to and the theme folder with activities which also now includes a comprehension about Nelson Mandela to complete in your own time- choose your level.

Times Tables Rockstars

Well done to all of you that took part in the Gloucestershire Schools Time Table Rockstars competition. I believe we came 22nd out of 86 schools, which is a fantastic result especially as some of those schools are considerably bigger than ours. Year 5 were 25th out of over 500 classes and Seb came 2nd out of 79 who took part from our school. Amazing!

Cheltenham Science Festival

Some of you might be interested to know that the Cheltenham Science Festival will be happening virtually between the 2-7th June all for free. Look at the web link below to find out more.

Money sense

For those of you who like to manage your pocket money- you might be interested in the home learning activities provided by Nat West. It included games and activities about budgeting and saving money. Some useful ‘real life’ maths!

National Book Tokens

If you have a spare few minutes, please can you visit the national book tokens site below and nominate Bussage school to win £5000 worth of book tokens for the benefit of the children in our school.

Finally, I hope you have a lovely half term and we shall see what June brings us. Hopefully, we will be back in school at some point before the summer holidays!

Please continue to send me your lovely work. It is great to see what you have been doing.

Thankyou and any questions please feel free to email me on the class email

Dear Parents and Children of Class 5,

I hope you are all still well and enjoyed the VE Day bank holiday. Who got the bunting out and enjoyed a picnic in the garden or front lawn? As I enjoyed the fine weather over the weekend I noticed a large number of birds visiting the garden. I thought the children might like to have a go at a garden bird watch. I have included some bird watching sheets in the google drive for them spot birds if they want to.

Maths continues to follow the White Rose Hub and a lesson from Twinkl on Friday. English involves some descriptive writing using the CGP books and a clip from Harry Potter. I have also included a PSHE sheet, the theme folder (with some extra sheets on African patterns to colour) and the birdwatching sheets, one of which is a reading comprehension- choose your level 1* easiest, 2* middle, 3* hardest.

Please continue to send me your lovely work. It is great to see what you have been doing.

Thankyou and any questions please feel free to email me on the class email
