I won't be setting any work over the Easter holiday, but you many want some activities to keep yourselves entertained over the break. Here are some activities that you can do during that time:
Have a great break. I'll continue to check my emails, so you can send me any more work that you have done or any photos/videos of things that make you proud, or if you have any questions.
Keep yourselves safe.
Friday 3rd April 2020
Good morning Class 5! Today is actually the last day of term - it feels very different to a regular last day. Later on today, I'll be putting some things on this page to keep you busy over the Easter break - nothing too difficult, because it's important that we all have a bit of a rest. Check back and have a look at the suggestions.
Thank you to everyone that has been doing the work and emailing it to me - it's great to see that you have been working hard at home. Make sure that you say thank you to your parents and carers for helping you with it - this is hard for them too, as I'm sure that they have lots of things that they need to be doing too.
Did you join in with the clap for the NHS last night? On my street we had people playing instruments and setting off fireworks too. It was very special.
Below is today's English work - some more comprehension questions, this time based on chapter three. For maths, I'd like you to sign up to the Prodigy Maths game - it's a nice little adventure game that asks you some questions so that you can earn points and magic. Make sure that you choose the correct level so that you are doing the right sort of questions.
Underneath the English work is our house token totals for this week - I have given out lots of virtual tokens, well done. Farah have been amazing! Malala and King need to get a bit more emailed to me.
Check the website later for an update, but, for now, have a great Easter break.

Good morning Class 5.
I hope that you're all keeping well and managing to keep yourselves amused at home - I'm beginning to find it a little bit difficult to find fun things to do! Last night I made a cricket game that I can play on the computer. Later on I think I might try to do some drawing.
Have you seen lots of rainbows in the windows near your home? We've put some in our windows and on our driveway to brighten up the street a little bit. I've put pictures of them below - perhaps you could send me examples of rainbows that you've made at home.
Don't forget to have a go at today's work and keep sending it in!
It has been amazing to see the work that you have been completing at home - thank you so much for sending it in!
Remember that sending in your work earns you a house token - I'm keeping a list and some people are earning LOTS! Well done!
Below are examples of the amazing work that Alaa, Arundhathi, Mahira, Abeer, Raees and De Fan have been doing at home.
Whole School Singing Challenge!
Hello everyone. Lots of people are using music to help them get through the difficult situation that we are all in at the moment. Have you seen the people in Italy singing to each other from their balconies? Or heard some of the funny rewrites of songs that are being shared on social media? My favourite is a clip of my GP singing ‘Stay at Home’ to the tune of ‘Let it Go’ from Frozen!
We thought it would be lovely if we could all learn a song together, and the song we have chosen is There’s a Power in the Music, which is the special Sing Up Day song for this year. You can sing along with the lyrics video on YouTube by clicking on the link below, and if you’d like your own set of lyrics you can find them below too.
When you’ve learnt the song, if you’re feeling brave (and I know a lot of you are VERY brave when it comes to performing), you could send a video of you singing along with a part or all of the song to your class teacher. This would be a great way to earn some house points for your house! We could then put some of the clips together to make our very own Bentinck music video. So come on Bentinck students, get singing and see if you can spread some smiles!
Mrs Burton and Mrs Tibbitts 😊
Here's a link to the song:

Hello again Class 5! It's April Fool's Day!
I spent a long time trying to think of a prank that I could play on you, but I couldn't come up with anything! Maybe you could share some of your pranks though - either ones that you have done to your family, or ones that they have done to you. I could do with a good laugh!
Here is today's work. I'm going to add some other bits during the day - some work that people have sent me and I challenge that I will be setting you. Until then, work hard but make sure that you are looking after yourself too!
Tuesday 31st March 2020 - UPDATED!
I've now added the English work for The Firework Maker's Daughter (sorry about the quality, I'll improve it for tomorrow!) and some brilliant work for Miss Hodgson's group.
Good morning Class 5.
Today, I will finally be going into school to collect some of the things that I need to do work at home - it will be nice to be back there after being stuck inside for two weeks!
I'll post some work for The Firework Maker's Daughter later, once I've been able to get the book! For now, here is some maths work and some science.
Don't forget your TT Rockstars fixture and to send me any pictures of the work that I have set you on our class page.

Hello Class 5 and welcome to week 2 of our home schooling adventure!
Thank you to everyone that sent me pictures of their work over the weekend - it was great so see. I'll make sure that I check all of it and do my best to mark it and send it back to you! I'll also put some pictures on the website and update the house token amounts!
Today we have some maths, English and spellings to have a look at below, there's also the next two rounds of the TT Rockstars Premier League (we'll need to go quick if we're going to finish the season).
If you want to email me anything, you can do so at Luke.Burton@Bentinck.Nottingham.sch.uk or you can upload things to Seesaw.

Hello Class 5!
We're at the end of our first week of home schooling - it's been very strange! I've not set any new work today, because there is quite a lot of stuff that I'd still like to see from you (email the work that you've finished for a house token!), plus pictures or videos of any exciting things that you've been doing at home!
Below are some examples of work that Geo has been doing at home over the past few days - thank you for sending it to me Geo, well done! Below that is our house token totals for this week - let's see if we can get even more next week!
Enjoy your weekend and keep yourselves safe!
Thursday 26th March 2020
Hello Class 5.
Thanks to those of you that have been checking the website and having a go at the work - I've already given some virtual house tokens to people that have completed some of it and emailed me. In order to get a house token whilst we are off, all you need to do is put your work on Seesaw or email it to me! At the weekend, I'll put a table on our class page to show how many tokens each house has earned!
Below, you'll find today's work. Remember that if you have any questions, if you are finding the work difficult, or if you need anything else, please feel free to message me through Seesaw or using my email - Luke.Burton@Bentinck.Nottingham.sch.uk
I'd also like to see some of the amazing challenges that you have set yourself whilst you are at home - has anyone managed to do kick-ups with a toilet roll? Or have you done a painting which you are proud of?
Look after yourselves!

Morning Class 5.
It's a simple one today! Don't forget to keep going with the work packs that you were given last week and do plenty of reading too.
The sheet is below for you to have a look at.
Tuesday 24th March 2020
Good morning Class 5. It is important that we keep ourselves active, even though we must stay at home.
Did you try the Joe Wicks PE lesson yesterday morning? Try it today. It begins at 9am and lasts for 30 minutes. You can find it here. You can follow live (and even get Joe to give you a shout out) or you can access the video later if you would prefer.
Below are the links for today's work - if there are any problems, please feel free to contact me. You can use Seesaw to share examples of work and comments with each other. If you haven't got the login, I will send one to you when I'm back in school, or you can email me.
Thanks, and keep yourself safe.
Monday 23rd March 2020
Good morning Class 5! I hope that you are all doing well and thank you for checking the website. Sorry that I wasn't around for the last couple of days at school before the closure - I'm currently still stuck at home! As soon as I can get back to school, I will do my best to send you out the Seesaw login images so that we can use that for sharing work (and hopefully relieve some of the pressure on the school website!)
The PDFs below will give you details about what I would like you to do today - based on the work that we started last week.
Take care of each other, and if you have any problems with the work feel free to send me an email at Luke.Burton@Bentinck.Nottingham.sch.uk
