Learning to be the best that we can be with the love of God

Happy FriYAY Year 5 and 6!  Well done on your ‘tea party guest’ suggestions – some brilliant ideas with really good reasons.

We have been lucky with some glorious weather this week.  Today’s challenge is to make the most of this and spend some time reading in the sunshine.  I love knowing what other people are reading, so let me know via Twitter, email or the Guestbook what you have been reading.

Hello, Year 5 and 6.  Thank you so much to those of you who shared your short stories yesterday, they were great!

Today’s challenge is to write a paragraph to answer the following question…

If you could invite any fictional character to attend a tea party with you, who would you invite and why?

I look forward to reading about your choices.  Miss Elliott x

Wednesday 25th March 2020

Good morning, Year 5 and 6.  I hope you are all keeping well.  Thank you to those of you who shared with us the words you found yesterday.  

Today's challenge is a writing task.  Look carefully at the pictures below.  Write a short story which includes all of the things in the picture.  Your story can be a 'silly' story if you wish, as long as your sentences make sense and you use correct punctuation. 

Extra virtual house points will be given if you remember to use expanded noun phrases, co-ordinating and subordinating conjunctions, relative clauses, modal verbs and correct speech punctuation.  I can't wait to read your short stories.

Happy writing! Miss Elliott x

Happy Tuesday, Year 5 and 6!  I absolutely loved seeing some of your questions about the picture yesterday.  My favourite was, 'How did the cow learn to swim?'
Today's challenge is a game of Boggle.  How many words can you make using the letters in the grid below?  You can only use each letter once (unless it appears more than once in the grid).  Tweet, email or Guestbook your lists of words to us.  Virtual house points for the person with the longest list of words!
Enjoy your day, keep safe.  Miss Elliott x

In the subject line write 'UKS2 English Monday' and send the questions you think of to  


Welcome to the Year 5 and 6 English Challenges page. Every day, new challenges and learning ideas will be posted here for you to have a go at.  Let us know how you are getting on with them.  You can ask your parents/carers to email or tweet us a picture of your work @RossingtonStM  You could also complete an entry to the Guestbook, below, to share your thoughts on the daily challenge.  


One of the best things you can do to improve your English and Literacy skills is to read, read and read some more.  The Year 5 and 6 staff look forward to hearing all about what you have been reading when we return to school.

Today I am reading in the sunshine - A series of Unfortunate Events- The Reptile Room. I have nearly finished and then I am going to start The Wide Window (Series of Unfortunate Events)

Annaliese (5M).(a couple of days ago)

I'm reading 'The Day We Met The Queen' and that book is a add on from the book 'The Boy At The Back Of The Class'.

Thank you Mr Walker. My audience is anyone under 5 years old.

Owen(a couple of days ago)

I would invite yoda and ask him about his battles throughout his life and I could also ask him about his son and how he got lost and ended up on another planet.

Charlie D(a couple of days ago)

To my tea party I would invite, Spider Man because one I would ask him if I could wear his mask .Two I would ask him how do you know when you need to help people and then I would know a lot about him. Plus I ask him to teach me some stunts.

Max (6p)(a couple of days ago)

I d invite piers Morgan because I could talk to him about his political view on the lockdown. I could talk to him about his view on parliament

Charlie(a couple of days ago)

Darth Vader because he has a cool costume and he has a lightsaber and he has a mask so when he breaths it is very loud and i like it, also all the food will go to me because he only eats in his private chamber through a tube, however he would probably get angry and chop up my food with his lightsaber.

Mr Walker(a couple of days ago)

A lovely fable Annaliese. You've done a great job punctuating speed correctly and including sentence starters that grip the reader into the story. Well done! I wonder who your audience was for this?
