Yesterday, a new writing competition was launched for this week - that's right, THIS WEEK ONLY! It is on the theme of Black Lives Matter. Watch this link today and learn more about it: You might want to think about this theme from the past, the present or even the future. Then, on Thursday, you will have time to think about and plan your story, as it must be a story, which connects to Black Lives Matter. And on Friday, your English session will be to finish and submit your entry. (Other English sessions will be shifted into next week!) To submit you story, please go to and follow the instructions on the website :)

Hello Year 5! 

Here is a reminder about the Leeds Children's Mayor.

Each year, Leeds elect a Children's Mayor. All Year 5 children across Leeds can apply to be the Children's Mayor and it goes to a vote across the city. If you become Mayor, you get to go to ceremonies and influence what happens for children in Leeds. 

We have had some applications already, and these have been great, and the good news is, if you are still thinking about it... you aren't too late! The deadline for applications is 5pm Wednesday 17th June. You need to think about what you would do if you were the Children's Mayor; how could you make a positive difference? In some ways, it is similar to applying to be on the school council... but on a bigger scale! 

If you think that this is something you would like to do, then please email us at the Year 5 address, and we will send you the manifesto template. 

Good luck and we really can't wait to see all of the wonderful ideas you come up with. 
Certificate for Yusuf!

Congratulations on winning the Super Sentence Comp.

We are starting to get applications back for the Ireland Wood candidate for Leeds Children's Mayor.  You still have time to apply too.  Please look at the information about the competition that we have posted under 'little things'.
Super Sentence Winner!

A HUGE thank you to all of the entrants to the Super Sentences competition. It was hard to choose as all of the pictures and sentences really captured the mood of lockdown life. The winner, decided by a panel of Mrs Amos, Miss Pliener and Mrs Georgeson was YUSUF! Well done Yusuf for your poignant and wistful entry. Well done to everyone for their contributions. We really enjoyed them all. Here is the sentence again. If I was busy with school, if I was rushing around, if I was going out all the time then I wouldn't have the time to enjoy the beauty of my garden!

Week 5 Afternoon tasks - Lockdown Madness:

After you have had a go at your science work, try one of these as your Afternoon Challenge:

This week, your teachers are issuing you with 4 challenges. You MUST undertake one of them and provide either photographic or video evidence for your teacher by Sunday evening, 24th May. (

Challenge 1: The Y5 IWPS Isolation Bake Off. You need to create a bake off to be proud of. A masterpiece. A showstopper. Come on, guys, impress us! Mrs Georgeson's and Miss Pliener's mum will judge on Sunday!

Challenge 2: A Lip synch battle. Recreate 90 seconds of your favourite ever song, then video yourself ‘lip sync’ performing it, putting in ALL THE MOVES. Mrs Georgeson's boys will judge the best!
Here is an example:

Challenge 3: Create a famous piece of art. Using stuff you can find in your house (bottle tops, toilet roll tubes, dressing up clothes etc) try to create a world famous piece of art. Mrs Amos and Mrs Stringer will judge your entries/photographs.
Here are some to inspire you!

Challenge 4: Do the 2020 Olympics in your own back garden/park. How many fun Olympic sports can you create and perform? Send us the best bits! Will you have medals? A ceremony? Music playing?


Here is a link that will let you have some fun while in Lockdown - a very special session from Mrs Smith.

So why not 'treat yourself' to a music lesson this week?
