Children In Need 2020: What to expect this year - CBBC Newsround

We celebrated Children in Need Day  by not wearing our uniforms and also finishing Joe Wicks' 24 hour PE challenge with him.  What an amazing achievement - we were all tired after 20 minutes! laugh  Thank you to everyone who donated and helped us to raise more than £400!!! yes


Well done to our two new Junior Road Safety Officers - Emily and Aimee.   We know you will do a great job raising awareness of road safety in our school.

Year 5 remembered the soldiers who have fought for our country's freedom.  We painted some pebbles and took them to the war memorial and also made some stained glass poppies to display on the fence outside school.



There was a biscuit thief at Wales Primary School, luckily Year 5  and 6 were there to help solve the crime and find the culprit. (See the gallery area for more photographs).



Some of our children were lucky enough to have a Zoom call with some Rotherham United players to talk about equality and black lives matter.  The children asked some amazing, mature questions.  Well done Freya, Florence, Kayla-Mae, Fraser, Taiyo and Seth - we are very proud of you all.

What a brilliant first few weeks we have had back at school.  The Year 5 children have been fantastic and have already wowed us with their learning - we are really proud of them all !  

As you are aware we have now started to send out home learning - a reading comprehension and spellings.  New work will be sent out on a Monday, the children will then have a week to complete it and it should be returned to school the following Monday.  

I will regularly upload photographs of our learning and have posted some photographs of the recent solids, liquids and gases science experiments we have been doing. You can see them in the 'Gallery' section at the bottom of the page.

If you have any questions please email me on and I will get back to you as soon as I can.

Thank you

Mrs Long-Melton smiley

Hi Year 5,

How are you all?  I hope you have had a great Summer break and are all rested and ready for an amazing year - I know I am !  laugh

We have some fantastic topics planned for you and I can't wait to teach you all about them.

Our start and finish times have changed for the beginning of this year so our day now starts at 8:55am and hometime is 3:10pm.

Our PE days are Mondays and Thursdays and you will need to come to school in full outdoor PE kit.

I am really excited about our class book.  It is called Troofriend, by the author Kirsty Applebaum.  My favourite thing about it is that it is written from the view point of a robot!  See if you can predict what it might be about from the front cover and blurb.


Don't forget to bring in the  piece of home learning you are most proud of for a display in our new classroom.


Enjoy your last week at home and I will see you all on Wednesday 2nd September.

Take care

Mrs Long-Melton
