The Boy at the Back of the Class - Summer 2

This half term we are reading 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' by Onjali Q Rauf. This is a very moving tale that is inspired by the recent refugee crisis in the world. We have linked that to the refugee situation in WW2 and therefore a lot of our topic learning this half term is based on the Second World War.

In maths this half term we are going to be looking at measurement, including length, angles, area and perimeter. We will put a special focus on telling the time.

If your child is having to isolate at any point during these last few weeks of term then some of the links below may prove useful. There are some English activities as well as maths and topic. 

Don't forget you can also have a look at activities that are set on both My Maths and Spelling Shed (links below). Please don't hesitate to email us on the Year 5 address if there is anything we can do to help.


English: 2 comprehensions with a WW2 theme.

Maths: An Area activity, as well as a code breaking challenge and 2 'five minute madness' sheets to revise general maths work from Year 5.

Topic:  Make your own gas mask and evacuation suitcase to link in with our WW2 topic.

Just for fun: I've added a WW2 colouring as well.
