5A – Our Final Sharing Assembly

This is our last Sharing Assembly! I hope that you have enjoyed seeing what other children in the class have been doing since we had to leave school – I definitely have.

We only have a couple of things to share but they are good ones:

Erin shared some of her memories from this year:
My favourite memory is…. well actually I have two. My first one is when we made the soups and this one is kinda random but when we were reading flotsam for English and then we had to act it out in groups. Oh, actually i have one more, and when we went to WICK COURT FARMMM! I really liked that.

Thank you for sharing your fantastic drawings! It has been great to see how hard you have been working on your sketching skills.

Even if you haven’t shared today, I hope you have been able to think of some good memories from year 5. Keep busy over the holidays! Read lots, try new things and play outside when you can. I that hope you all have a wonderful summer!

5A – Preparing for our final Sharing Assembly!

Good morning, 5A! I’m getting ready to post our final sharing assembly tomorrow. I didn’t receive anything at all last week πŸ™ but would love to be able to share as much as possible this final time πŸ™‚.

What was your favourite memory from year 5? Was there a topic or activity that you enjoyed? Something you achieved that you feel proud of? A moment that still makes you laugh? You can draw or create something to celebrate our year instead.

Email your memories and photos to our class email address: 5Ahomelearning@holbeach.lewisham.sch.uk. I will compile them and post them tomorrow!

Goodbye, 5A!

The end of term is nearly here which means the last day of being in 5A. It isn’t the end of year that we were expecting! I am disappointed that we didn’t get to finish as we would have wanted to but I am so glad for the time that we had as a class.

I remember meeting you for the first time in the library last year and can see how much you have all grown. You are now a group of taller, increasingly confident and independent learners that it has been a pleasure to teach. Given that you were a mixed-up group at the start of the school year, you should be very proud of how you have all come together to create a wonderful new class.

I am sure that you will have an incredibly successful time in year 6 with Miss Felton and I can’t wait to see what you all achieve! I hope that you have a lovely rest over the summer and return to school ready to take on everything your final year at Holbeach has to offer.

Remember to always be curious and ask questions!

5A – Sharing Assembly Reminder

Good morning, 5A! How are you all today? It is very strange not to have seen many of you for so long now. I really hope you are all doing well! What is something you have enjoyed the most since we finished lessons together in school? Mine is definitely doing lots of baking! πŸ™‚

Tomorrow is our sharing assembly so please send your photos to 5Ahomelearning@holbeach.lewisham.sch.uk. You can share anything you’d like – it doesn’t have to be distance learning, and it’s not too late to be a first timer!

5A’s Sharing Assembly

Good morning, 5A! Welcome to our Sharing Assembly. Thank you to those of you who have shared this week – there is some lovely work. πŸ™‚



Audrey has created an online picture book for her young cousins to enjoy. You can click on the image above or find it here. It looks very professional – well done, Audrey!


Aamori’s Rome fact file makes me want to take a trip there! Where in Italy would you like to visit?
Aamori has written about Guru Nanak. What did you find most interesting about his life?


Poppy has been working on her Roman numerals. How would you write the year you were born using Roman numerals?


Ibrahim’s coordinates work needed concentration. Do you remember the rules for translating shapes?


Erin’s comic strip covers the lives of Romulus and Remus! What would you say is the most important part of the story?
Erin has also shared her diary entry for Faustulus on the day he found the twins. Do you think he did the right thing? Why?

Have a lovely weekend, 5A!

5A’s Sharing Assembly

Good morning, 5A! I hope you are all okay, looking after yourselves and looking forward to a cooler day today. Today we have some work shared by Aamori, Poppy and Erin.

I checked my inbox but I think some of your emails may have got lost in cyberspace… If you haven’t sent your photo yet and meant to, please email it to me at 5Ahomelearning@holbeach.lewisham.sch.uk and I will add it to this post!


Aamori’s text map shows the story of Orpheus and Eurydice. Can you use it to read the story aloud?
Aamori has shown her learning on Roman houses! Which would you preferred to have lived in and why?
Aamori’s work on addition is very neatly presented. What steps do you use to work out number bonds to multiples of ten?


Poppy’s has shared maths on symmetry. Where have you seen symmetry today?


Erin recorded her thoughts after first reading Orpheus and Eurydice. What were your likes and dislikes?
Erin’s RE shows the life of Guru Nanak. Why is Guru Nanak so important in the Sikh faith?


This is a first time share for Ibrahim! He has been working hard on his maths.

Thank you for sharing! Well done for some wonderful work. πŸ™‚
Have a lovely weekend, 5A!

5A – Sharing Assembly Reminder

Good morning, 5A! Have you had a good week? What have you all been doing? I am finding it very warm and would love to be able to have break times in a swimming pool! What would you love to do in this heat?

A reminder that tomorrow is our Sharing Assembly. Please send your photos to 5Ahomelearning@holbeach.lewisham.sch.uk by the end of the day, if you can. We have had lots from the same children over the last few weeks. It has been so fantastic to see what they have shared but it would be wonderful to also have some sharing from others too!

If you have never shared before, or have not for a while, please do send something – we would love to see what you have been up to. Remember, it doesn’t have to be work set on the blog, it can be anything you like!

5A’s Sharing Assembly

Good morning, 5A! Welcome to our Sharing Assembly! I hope you have all had a lovely week. As you know, I have been back at school, but I have found it very strange to be back but not in our classroom and without you all there. I did enjoy being outside in the warm weather at the start of the week. What has been your favourite part of the week?

A reminder that today is the deadline for the ‘Black Lives Matter’ poster competition! Please send your entries to me at 5Ahomelearning@holbeach.lewisham.sch.uk by the end of the day. It would be wonderful to have many more entries from 5A. The competition is being judged by the Lewisham Young Mayor and his advisors which is very exciting. That could be one of you not too far in the future.

Without further ado, well done to this week’s sharers!


What an excellent scutum and pose from Daniel to start us off!



Aamori’s scutum has a gold and silver trim! What did you do to make your shield eye-catching?
Aamori’s dialogue features a child who doesn’t like vegetables. What is your least favourite food? What is your favourite?



Yasha’s history shows the careful construction of Roman roads. Can you remember what the layers are?
For RE, Yasha thought about the different groups we might belong to and what they wear. Which groups do you belong to?

Have a wonderful weekend, 5A. πŸ™‚
