Friday 3rd april

Good Morning 5CR, where did you all go yesterday?   Apart from Khemjira, Oliver , Ellie and Leon, the rest of you seem to have disappeared.   It is the last day of Home Learning for two weeks so lets end this term with some amazing work for our class page.  You do not have to send in all the work you do, just the piece you are most proud of and I will proudly show it below.

I am in the process of sorting out the Top Ten Word count and Book count for March and the Reading Heros for this week so keep an eye on the space below, they will definitely appear at some point today.  Also look out for the Friday dance crew which I am sure Mr Quick will be posting up during lunch.

Have a great day learning

Here we are.  The last pieces of work for the Spring 2 Term.  Thankyou Khemjira, great poster, Maths and Science work


So much work has gone into this writing Melody.  You should be so proud of yourself.


WOW Melody.  Amazing Art work.  Your collaborative Kandinsky work is fantastic.  You have definitely gone 'The Extra Mile' to Be The Best You Can Be'


Ellie never fails to complete her Home Learning.  You really are a superstar Ellie.  Have a well deserved two weeks off.


Here is a sample of the amazing work that Scarlett has been doing. Maths, Spellings, Writing and she has read Charlie and the Cholcolate Factory and passed the quiz.  So many reasons to be proud.  Well done Scarlett

  Well done Malwina.  Great Spellings.



Anyone who appears on any of these reading achievement posters can have 50Hps for each poster their name is on.  I am really, really proud of you.  Keep it up.  You are super stars.

Thursday 2nd april

Hi 5CR.   I am currently working on creating an amazing Art Curriculum with Mr Himsworth and Miss Price and we are all amazed by the standard of the sketching you are sending in.  Such high quality.  Here at Chesswood we want all our children to 'Go the Extra Mile' and 'Be the best you can Be',  you are certainly doing this with your Art and all the rest of your Home Learning. Such dedication.  Keep it up :-) Although we are about to have a 2 week break, make sure you still try to fit in a little learning each day.  There will be no work set on the class 5 Daily Learning page but you still have the opportunity to practice your Writing, Art, Maths and Reading.  I am sure with your imaginations and creativity you can come up with some really fun ways to do this.  Enjoy your day.  Miss Read


I see Khemjira is putting her DT skills to good use and she has even been kind enough to write out the recipe for us incase we would like to have a go at creating a huge marshmallow Krispie cake for our families too.


More beautifully presented work from Ellie.  From the wow comment on her division by two digits calculation I can see someone else is as impressed as I am by her high quality work.

 Delicious looking cake baked by Ellie for her Morfer (Grandad in Danish)  Excellent DT Skills


Excellent Maths and spellings from Oliver.  I know how tricky you used to find division.  Now you are completing calclations with ease.  Well done

wednesday 1st april

Good Morning 5CR, you have all been working so hard.  I am very proud of you all.  Just 3 more days of Home Learning before you get 2 weeks off for the Easter Holidays so lets make it a fun packed 3 days of learning  so I can put all your lovely work on this class page.  If I haven't heard from you yet, please get in touch, it would be great to see what you have been up to since you have not been able to come into school.   Keep doing those AR quizzes.  Top Tens will be posted very soon.

Have a lovely day

What great writing and origami Melody.  I can see you have put a lot of work into your Home Learning.  I really like how you have made a draft of your letter before writing it up. Excellent work.



Eva sent me loads of amazing work today.  Rather than put it all on the class page I have chosen some of the best bits.  Fantastic Home Learning Eva.


I really like how Finley has made a draft of his letter before writing it up in neat.


He also used some great research techniques and created a word map.  Excellent Home Learning.  I know you are really proud of it.

Tuesday 31st MARch 

Hi 5CR

I am so pleased to see that you are all doing so well on your Home Learning. I love receiving all your fantastic photos.  I hope you have all noticed that the housepoints are now shown alongside each piece of work on the daily learning table.  Remember to tally up all your hard work carefully, ready to put on your housepoint charts when you get back to school. 

This is the last week of the Spring 2 Term so I would like you to try your hardest to meet your targets on Accelerated Reader.  So far only 9 children have met their target ( Scarlett, Nicholas, Finley, Nethanylle, William, Caleb, Bella P, Annie and Matilda) 4 children are really close (Ellie, Deni, Khemjira and Harry) 5 of you have not read a single book this half term :(  and the rest of you can make it if you really try to be the best you can be and go the extra mile.  I am happy for you to email me if you would like to know how close you are to your target and how many points you still need :-)

I will be posting the top tens for IXL and TTRockstars tomorrow.  Remember prizes are available for the name at the top of each list.  I am keeping a note of all the children who have earnt prizes so far and I promise that no matter what date you come back to school I will ensure you get to choose your prize.  I am so proud of all the hard work you have been putting in.  Keep it up 5CR


I am not sure if William has sent me a picture of the cookies from the other day or whether he just loves making cookies.  It is definitely one of the best ways to do Home Learning as you get to eat your learning once you have finished.  He has been hard at work with his History and Science too.  Well done William.

  Yet another quiz completed by Ellie.  Target met.  Well done


More beautifully presented work Ellie.  You really are living up to the Chesswood Mottos of Be the Best you can Be and Go the Extra Mile

Theo gives a pretty good argument for not wearing a uniform in his letter to Mr Jolley.  Great work Theo. Well done

What an incredible eye drawn by Bella G - So much detail.  And she finished a book and passed a quiz.  Well done.  Amazing Home Learning

Queenie has decided if she can't work with her friends in the classroom, she will do it online instead.  Hi Bella P.  Great idea Queenie.

I just don't know where Elsa gets all the energy from.  In this picture she is doing a 3km run  She really is going the extra mile!



Excellent spinner experiment Eva.  You explained the science behind it really well


Annie and Erin have been hard at work researching life in Ancient Greece.  They have also been doing a lot of Duolingo and IXL.  I wonder if they will be at the top of the Top Tens this week.  They are definitely in for a chance at the prizes on offer.



Elsa has been in touch to say that she felt very active this morning.  

  Check out her awesome skills.


Like Cristian, Melody was putting her DT skills to good use yesterday and she too made some delicious looking cookies.  She also learnt all about surface tension and wrote a great report.  Excellent Science work.  Remember to add on those housepoints.


Those cookies look fantastic Cristian.  Great Maths work too.  Make sure you look on the daily learning table to see how many house points you have earnt.
