Welcome to our website. We hope you will find our site useful and easy to navigate.
Good morning to you all!! We hope that you enjoyed the long weekend. Can you believe that it would have been the first day of SATs week, today?
The Leicester Mercury published more photos of V.E. Day and we liked these ones taken in the Town Hall Square. The first shows the huge crowds that gathered there. The second shows people doing a dance called The Lambeth Walk.
We’d like to start the week with an opportunity for reflection about V.E. Day. Please enter your thoughts on Socrative.
Here are Thursday’s answers
Now for today’s learning:

Spelling Groups 1 and 2
We are going to continue to focus on the Years 5/6 list. Each week, we will show a piece of work that has been completed by Mr Whoops. In each piece of writing, he has spelt some of the Years 5/6 words incorrectly – whoops! Your job is to spot the words he has spelt incorrectly and have a go at writing them correctly in your workbook. We will put up the answers tomorrow so you can check that you spotted them all and spelt them correctly.
If you usually have your own spellings, here they are:
For today’s maths, you are going to focus on addition and subtraction of fractions, including when there are mixed numbers. There is a video to watch, then a task to complete. You can answer the questions in your exercise book.
Remember, you can pause the video at any point.
Start by watching the video and then open the pdf sheet underneath for the questions. As always, you can answer the questions in your exercise book.
Over the next couple of weeks, we are going to focus on persuasive language and persuasive devices. In Year 5, you learnt about persuasive devices and you will need that knowledge for this unit – there will be reminders!
Today, following on from the V.E. Day work you did last week, we thought it might be interesting to focus on propaganda posters. You studied some of these in Year 4 as part of your history, but let’s really analyse them and think about what it was that made them so persuasive.
Right click on the pdf to open it in a new tab and find out more.
Open the worksheet when prompted to do so. You can either print it and complete the work on the sheet or write your thoughts in your exercise books using the ideas given.
Over the next two days, you will complete our People in Action unit. Some of you have even anticipated what is going to come next as we have seen some examples of your work – thank you!
We would like you to produce a piece of work that, through overlapping and the use of shading, gives the impression of a moving figure. You have learnt all of the necessary skills and you have collected ideas so it’s a question of bringing it all together.
You have two sessions for this task so we suggest you use one day for drawing and one day for shading/colouring.
This is a really hard thing to do so just try your best. There is no need to do lots of rubbing out, remember.
Try to complete the work on A4 paper and keep it safe. When we go back to school, it would be lovely to create a display of all of your art work!
