RSC Live Broadcast for schools of Hamlet


Here is the place to blog all things Hamlet!

Before watching, tell us everything you know about the play. Include plot, characters, anything that comes to mind.

During the production you will be able to blog during the intervals about what you have just watched. Again, you can comment on anything to do with the play that interests you.

Addition and Subtraction

We are going to begin looking at addition and subtraction next week in Maths. You need to complete at least 5 examples of addition and 5 examples of subtraction in your Learning Logs using whichever written method you feel most comfortable with. You should write each question before showing your workings. Choose numbers to add and subtract that you are comfortable using.


For those of you who are checking the blog over the holiday (as requested), you will have an opportunity to get ahead with spellings for next week. They are under Week 8 if you click on the ‘Spellings’ section of the black tab above.



After the holiday we will be working on sentence structures.

What is a sentence?

Do you know what simple, compound and complex sentences are?

What’s the difference between a phrase and a clause?

How do writers use sentences?

We look forward to hearing from you.

Decimal numbers

Hello Fantastic 5’s,

I hope your holiday has begun well and you are enjoying your break. As promised, here are some things to investigate over the holiday.

Some of you are confused with decimal numbers. Here are three videos that you may find useful. The first looks at place value.

The next one begins to focus on decimal place value.


And finally, one that explains tenths, hundredths and thousandths.

Look at the videos and blog with what you know. the following questions might get you thinking:

  1. What are decimal numbers?
  2. What is the difference between numbers to the left of the decimal point and numbers to the right of the decimal point?
  3. What is the difference between 2.6, 2.60 and 2.600?
  4. Where in real life might you see and use decimal numbers?
  5. What is meant by the terms: 1 decimal place, 2 decimal places and 3 decimal places?

Let us know if you have any questions.

Have fun.

Mrs Millard and Mrs Mansfield




Unsung hero biography

Don’t forget to get as much information as you can about your “unsung hero.”

Their best times and the times they would rather forget. Highs and lows, interesting tales from their histories so far.

Have they been influenced or inspired by someone or some experience?

How have they influenced you? Why are they a hero to you?

We will work on the structure in class but you need to know your stuff to be able to produce an excellent piece of writing.

Don’t forget important dates and the sections in their life you want to write about.

Place Value – What is it? What does it mean?

Hi all,

Next week we are going to start to look at place value during mathematics.

What is place value?

What do you already know? What do you understand?

What could you share with the rest of year 5?

Could you link the work covered on Roman Numerals?

Here are a few links to videos that might help. Perhaps you could add some better links that you find.


Good luck! Ask any questions as you go and as a team we will try to help!
