Animals Project


Some familiar faces visited Chester Zoo recently and answered some questions we all had about animals. 

As a school, we want you to create a project based on:

  • Different classifications of living things. What is the difference between a mammal, amphibian, reptile, bird and fish? Can you tell us about any of their habitats.
  • Can you tell us the life cycles of any of these classifications? 


Please be creative as like showing your research. It can be a poster, video, powerpoint, leaflet... be as creative as you like. 


Any pictures or emailed projects will be entered in a draw to win a special prize. Please email in no later than Wednesday 15th July to


We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Home Learning Tasks 

Updated Home Learning with Year 5


Welcome Back Y5!

We hope that you enjoyed half term and managed to have a little rest as well as creating happy memories with your family.

Back to work today! As a school we have decided to now follow the Oak National Academy lessons. Each day go into the daily planets and the lessons will be there for you, just like before.


What is Oak National Academy?

Oak National Academy is an online classroom that has been created by teachers specifically to support pupils learning at home. It is backed by the Department for Education.


How are lessons taught?

Each lesson is delivered by a trained teacher, over a pre-recorded video, and it is made very clear at the start of each session anything you might need (such as pens, paper etc). The lessons are designed to need minimal supervision. Each lesson can be paused and rewound to help pupils learn at their own pace.  The lessons include quizzes, worksheets and creative activities to engage your child.


How do I share my child's work with a teacher?

Take a screen shot of your child's work or a photo of your child working and email it or share it on Twitter. As some of the work will be written you can share this via email or twitter in the normal way.


On-line Assembly

Each Thursday at 11 am Oak Academy hold and online assembly. These provide opportunities to hear form some inspirational guest speakers, including the first British astronaut, the cast of the Lion King and the Archbishop of Canterbury. You will find links to these assemblies in Thursday's splats.


Oak Activity Club

Some days with feature activities from the Activity Club. These activities will hopefully keep your child active and engaged. The activities feature cook-a-longs, debating and arts activities. To access these activities please see the 'Oak Activity Club' section on our homepage.




If you need any help/support with your child's learning or have any questions. Please email us at:
