Remote Learning

Wow it's the last full week in Year 5! If you are unlucky enough to be self-isolating, the work you need to complete can be found on this page.



Week 6: 12.7.21 - 16.7.21

This week we are continuing our fiction unit of work in English based on the book 'Goodnight Mr Tom' and we will be completing our final extended writing challenge.


This week, you are going to write a 'missing chapter' short story for 'Goodnight Mister Tom'.  As part of Will's recovery after Tom rescued him from London, Tom takes Will and Zach on a two week seaside holiday.  Will has never been to the seaside before so everything is a new experience for him.  Your challenge this week is to write the short story of their holiday, including lots of thoughts and feelings of each of the characters as well as their experiences whilst they are there. 


Follow the instructions on the documents below to plan your short story on Monday.  You will then spend the rest of the week writing your detailed short story.

You can find Chapters 1-4 from Goodnight Mister Tom below if you need a quick recap on the story so far or need them to support your learning this week.
