Happy Friday Class 5! Another week done, they absolutely fly past these days!

Did you manage to complete the island bridge challenge yesterday?

Here is a solution from Louie:


We realised that there were quite a few different solutions!

Today, head on over to the BBC Bitesize website for the maths challenge of the day. Remember that these get more challenging as they progress and the last questions are year 6, moving in to year 7 level. Send in your solutions to me to show me how far you got

Well done on all of your writing tasks on the image of the Unwanted Visitor this week! Today have a go at the reading lesson on Bitesize which focuses on Artemis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. I have had this book on my bookshelf for ages – I might start reading it after having a go at this lesson 🙂

This afternoon have a go at some science and literacy together. Head over to where there should be a short video.


Out of all the penguins, the emperor penguin is the largest. These flightless birds live in the Antarctic and the waters surrounding it. Penguins have adapted to be able to deal with this cold, harsh environment, both physically and socially.
In the clip, we will see a giant petrel stop some penguin chicks in their tracks. Will the young emperor penguins be able to stand their ground, or will they lose their fight?
After watching the clip, imagine you are the Emperor of the emperor penguins. You have heard about the encounter between some young penguin chicks and a giant petrel, and you have heard how through teamwork, bravery, and the help of a friendly and fierce Adelie, they were able to stand up for themselves against their attacker.

Write a speech addressing all the penguins in your empire to ensure everyone knows about the penguin chicks’ bravery.

Make sure you…

  • Greet your audience and explain why you are making a speech here today
  • Describe the event that took place
  • Explain why you are awarding these penguin chicks with a medal

Next, use these facts about emperor penguins from to create a quiz about penguins. Test your family and friends on their penguin knowledge. Use purple mash 2quiz if you want to create your quiz.

Also, I wanted to share this amazing work with everyone. Daniel has been working on his stop motion animation more and it’s fantastic. I know he has got lots of ideas so I can’t wait to see more!

Have a fabulous Friday and enjoy your weekend 😀
