Rainbow Day! 🌈

Proud to be teaching year 5!

Festivals and Celebrations


Throughout this week and last week, we choreographed and performed a Caribbean-inspired dance routine alongside Cedar class. I could not be more proud of you all; you worked hard to overcome the dreaded stage fright and your dances were absolutely fantastic. You should be extremely proud of what you accomplished this week, well done!

In the style of the image below, create your own self portrait made using the words that describe you and make you unique and wonderful!


This way of presenting words and phrases is called a calligram! Begin by sketching the outline of your face and hair and fill in with words in darker colours. I can't wait to see them!

Can you use a metaphor to describe a character from clockwork? e.g. Dr Kalemius' eyes were caverns of darkness.


Can you use a simile to describe a character from clockwork? e.g. Gretl's heart was as pure as gold. 


Can you use a relative clause in a sentence about a character? e.g. Karl, who was incredibly lazy, hadn't created a clock piece after all. 


Can you use personification to describe the setting? (Remember, this is when you give human characteristics to something that it not human.) e.g. The moon was resting in the midnight sky as it shone down on the town of Glockenheim. 


Well done for another amazing week, Beech Class. If you are struggling with your homework, you can always email me and let me know.


Have a fantastic weekend

Homework 02.10.2020

email to




Mrs McKenna's / Mr Mason's group: 


1. am 

2. animals

3. another 

4. any 

5. around 


Miss Robinson's group: 


1. calendar 

2. caught 

3. centre 

4. century 

5. certain 




I would like you to make a list of the key events of Clockwork so far in order! Think carefully about who the characters are and what they have been doing. Don't worry about getting this absolutely correct as this is what our focus is going to be next week. 


I have written what I think are the first 3 key events to get you started:


1. The characters are waiting for Fritz to come and tell his story. 

2. Karl does not want to join in because he is angry at himself for not making a clock piece. 

3. Fritz begins to tell his story. Everybody is scared. 


Continue this list until you reach the point where Gretl says the secret word that makes Sir Ironsoul come to life. It doesn't matter if your classmates have more or less events than you. This is simply to help you with next week's task. 




I have attached 2 documents below, focusing on multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000. Complete 1 sheet from each of these, the sheets get gradually harder so select your difficulty level carefully. 


Have a fantastic weekend every body! I hope you've had as good a week as I have.

Homework 18.09.20 




We want to hear your opinion of Phillip Pullman's 'Clockwork: All Wound Up'!  Write a review of the story so far.


Consider the following questions: 


Are you enjoying the story? Why/why not?

What has been your favourite part?

Were there any parts that shocked/scared you?

Would you recommend it to a friend? Why?

What do you think is about to happen next? (Is Karl going to steal Sir Iron Soul and pass him off as his own work to avoid embarrassment? Is Dr Kalmenius truly evil or is he trying to help Karl? If we think that Gretl is the girl on the front cover, how is she going to become intertwined with the story?)




I have attached your Maths homework underneath. We'd like you to focus on multiplication, as this is something you expressed that you struggled with this week!


Choose a multiplication sheet that you feel most comfortable with! Don't worry, you don't have to complete both. However, if you choose to challenge yourself by multiplying by 2 digits, there are some really useful Youtube videos out there to help you, including:


Remember to email your hard work to me at!
