Narborough Primary Academy

Friday 3rd July

It's Friday!!!!

Spellings: rule 39: ance/ancy, ence/ency suffixes

It’s Friday, which means it is test day!

  • Click on year 5 & 6 (spelling rule 39 ance/ancy, ence/ency)
  • Click on Practice / Test and test the spelling rule you have been learning this week.
  • Record your score in your English Book under your word list.


English/Topic: Could you be the next David Attenborough?

The narration….

Today is the day you will attempt to be the next David Attenborough….

You will need your story board to remind you of your “story” that you are telling. You may need to make some additional notes, or some of you may actually want to write down exactly what you are going to say.

Practice it…think about how you are using your voice, remember to be accurate in what you are saying (use precise language) keep the language relatively formal (you don’t hear David Attenborough saying….”erm…. like… sort of….stuff…” so you shouldn’t).

Then…Can you film it and upload it to dojo? You can show your story board if you wish, but I will be listening for the quality of your narration (what you say) not judging you on what I can see…

I can’t wait to hear them!!!!



Daily 10

Pupils have also been using daily 10 in class to improve this recall of multiplication and division facts. They all know how this works. Click on the link below to access the website.

Having listened to your feedback, some of you preferred the white rose maths, and some preferred the NCETM videos. So, I am going to offer a choice. You can either do the white rose or  the NCETM videos. There is no right or wrong option, it is what best suits you. Either lesson will benefit your child.

NCETM Year 5/6

Lesson 15: Why do we simplify fractions?

White Rose

Friday Fun Family Challenge:

Work together as  a family to become awesome problem solvers! Some challenges are easier than others. They do get progressively harder (Up to year 9 level…so if you struggle with questions 6 and above, don’t panic!). See how many of the problems you can solve… parents can also help! (The problems are the same for year 5 and 6, so clicking on either link will take you to the relevant challenge: Summer term, week 10: Friday Maths challenge).

Science: Salt water

Check up on your salt water experiment….can you see any change yet? Record any observations in your exercise book.

Design technology: Foodie Friday!!!

My favourite day of the week, with my favourite task of the week! Foodie Friday has returned!!! Get creative in the kitchen! Knock up a snack, as sweet treat, a healthy meal….whatever you fancy. Can you try to make something that involves careful measuring of ingredients (e.g. weighing/ capacity of liquids). Can’t wait to see some of your fabulous creations. Channel your inner chef/ bake-off contestant…(Extra bonus points may be awarded if you clean up after you too!)
