UKS2 – Final Week


Oh my! It’s the last week of this academic year! Can you believe it? What a strange year it has been. You have learned so much at school and at home, and proven just how resilient, kind and creative you truly are.

This week will be a little different to normal as some of you will have given your iPads back to school. Here are some things that will be a little different this week:

  • Today, your teacher will be sending your End of Year report to your adult(s)
  • There won’t be any live lessons
  • The final assembly of the year will be on Zoom with Mr Wilson on Friday
  • Feel free to send work on SeeSaw still if you would like, but we understand that some of you might not have an iPad to be able to upload your work

Here is the suggested timetable for this week:

‘How to survive Year 5 / 6’ guide

If you could have read a manual at the beginning of the year, with advice about how to survive such a strange and unique school year, what would it say?

Imagine you could send some advice to yourself at the beginning of this school year.

Monday – Part 1 – The year before lockdown

Think back to the school year before we had to leave for lockdown. What were the best moments? Did you enjoy any particular topics, or lessons? Can you remember any trips that you enjoyed? Do you have any advice for yourself to help you through any difficult lessons or situations?

e.g. At first, you’ll feel a little lost and confused as everything in this new class is so much harder than last year, but if you stay focused and work hard, you’ll soon find it easier and easier. My main advice for Maths is to learn your times tables, then you will find the tricky parts much quicker and easier. At times, you might have disagreements with your friends in the playground, but it’s always better to calm down and say sorry because school is a much more lonely place without your friends around you. In Year 5 you get given more responsibility and sometimes need to help out with the younger children or help to organise the library.

Tuesday – Part 2 – The year during lockdown

How have you stayed safe and sane during lockdown? What lessons have you learned about yourself? How have you overcome the challenges you have faced? What tips do you have about staying motivated to do your remote learning? Are there any things you have done which you would advise other people not to do?

e.g. In the first few weeks of lockdown, you will discover the most amazing apps – House-party and Zoom- but within a month you will have been on them so much you’ll get bored and tired as the novelty wears off. It is important, however, to keep in touch with your friends. Send them the occasional message, or call them for a chat. We would normally see each other every day in school, so make the effort to call at least once a week. 


Wednesday and Thursday – Book Recommendations 

Create a poster for the new year 5 or 6 class to recommend some books for them to read this year. What have you enjoyed reading, and why?

Things to include:

  • A brief overview of the story – NO SPOILERS!
  • Why you enjoyed it so much
  • What kind of people will enjoy this book? Is it similar to any others? e.g. ‘You’ll enjoy this book if ….’
  • A picture of the cover. If you can’t print one off, you could hand draw a version yourself.

I created my poster on PowerPoint but you could make one by hand if you do not have access to a computer.

A final quote for the year is one I shared right at the beginning of lockdown:


Everyone has come so far since March and everyone deserves a big ‘well done!’
