This week is all about you!


You will be completing activities that you can either write or type up for your new teacher.

Remember, that this will be the first piece of work that they will see from you, so show how amazing - I know - you are by adding detail and completing this in your best handwriting.


All About Me: this activity is split over 2 days. 

It may be worth writing out your answers in rough first before copying them up.


Today, please complete page 3 of All About Me

You will get a chance to design your perfect classroom.  You can use the template provided or your own paper to draw your design.  You may want to present your work in a different way by using Lego, clay or other modelling materials. 



Please go to:

  • the work file on Purple Mash - Kestrel
  • Or, This week’s learning


  • you will find a word document on All About Me


  • Please use detail and description and, if you would like a challenge, include all of the year 5 grammar and punctuation that we have looked at.


  • Please save this onto your computer/take a photo of it and email to me.

If you have typed this, please print it off and keep it safe for September when you meet your new teacher.
