Kangaroos - Year 5

Summer Term Distance Learning for Kangaroos (Year 5)


Please scroll below to access your Summer 2 distance learning resources to complete in your Distance Learning Journal.


As during the Spring term and Summer 1, I will be uploading daily challenges for you to complete Monday-Friday, alongside practising your times tables on Times Table Rockstars, spellings on Spelling Shed and lots of reading. Remember to look in your distance learning booklet for extra tasks and activities to do. 


To ensure the Summer 2 daily challenges are clear and easy to find, I have moved the Spring term and Summer 1 challenges and pictures further down the page, but please continue to access them if you missed any days that you would like to catch up on.


If you are a parent or carer of a child in Kangaroos and have any questions about your child's distance learning, please email the class email address:


I am always happy to help.


Take care and stay safe!

Summer Term: Daily Challenges

Week 8 of Summer 2


Hi Kangaroos! 


Here we are... the final few days of Year 5. What a year we have had! It was great to see lots of your smiley faces in our zoom transition meetings last week.


There are two days left until the end of term. Below are your final tasks to complete. There are also some resources for over the summer holidays too. Don't forget to take part in Bookman's summer reading challenge! There is also a painted pebble activity for our special memory path.


I have uploaded a very special Collective Worship service for you all from St Matthew's Church. Take a look below!


Although our time has been cut short this year, I am so proud of all the hard work you have done - both in school and at home. I have loved the learning journey we have been on together. Not only this year, but in Year 3 together too! They say, as a teacher, your first class always has a special place in your heart - and you all definitely have a special place in mine- even more so as I was lucky enough to teach you in Year 3 as well. My favourite things this year have been teaching you about Space, our trips to Peterborough Cathedral and the National Civil War Centre and reading the Inventions of Hugo Cabret with you all - we really loved that book!


 I can't wait to see what else you go on to achieve in Year 6 and beyond. Continue to be the superstars that you are! laugh


Have a fantastic summer and stay safe. I look forward to seeing you all on the playground in September for a big catch up!

Music learning

24th June 2020


The children in the Year 5 key worker bubble completed today's music task together! Obviously it had to be football themed as lots of us are football crazy! We hope you like it smiley


To the tune of ‘Watermelon Sugar’ by Harry Styles


Tastes like crowds cheering at Weston Holmes,

And it sounds just like Posh,

I want more goals and that winning feeling,

It’s so wonderful and fun.


Chanting in, chanting out,

I don’t know if I could ever go without,

I’m just cheering out loud,

I don’t know if I could ever go without,


C’mon ‘boro high

C’mon ‘boro high

C’mon ‘boro high

C’mon ‘boro high

C’mon Peterborough!

I enjoyed checking in with your parents - it sounds like you're all doing a fabulous job at home! I've been reading lots during lockdown - all books from our class book corner! I've put a picture below of what I've been reading. Some are texts I hope I'll get to share with you as a class this year. I enjoyed all of them! What are you reading at the moment? I'd love to hear! Equally, if you can recommend me a book that you've read from our book corner, please do and then I'll be sure to take it home with me the next time I'm in school. Keep learning lots at home and stay safe. Speak soon. Miss Reed x
