Hi Year 5,
We hope you're all keeping well and still having fun. It seems like a very long time that we've been in lock down and not in school, and I know it's getting harder to stay focused. But, we are so pleased with the emails we are still getting from you every week, showing us some of the fabulous things you are doing! Looking at them, we are really impressed to see that you are doing well to stay motivated and completing that work! Well done, guys! This week, we have another wide range of activities for you to complete. So, do your best, be creative and have fun! See you all again soon!
Mrs Fatile, Mr Carpmail and Mrs Shenton,xx xx xx

Sunday 31st May:
Hi Year 5 We hope you've had a fantastic Half Term! The weather has been fabulous and I've really enjoyed seeing some of you out and about in the village over the last few days. The new half term starts tomorrow and sadly, it doesn't look as though you are going to be back in school for a while longer yet. Because of this, it is important that you settle down each day and do some work. We've set the lessons in the timetable so that you can attempt to do them without much adult support, so it's down to you to get into a good routine and try your best to learn! Your efforts will really pay off in the future. We are here to answer any questions you've got via email. Even when we are in teaching Year 6, we will have our emails open ready to hear from you. Take care and be good!

VIRTUAL ROYAL ALBERT HALL CONCERT 3.6.20
This week, the KS2 choir should have been excitedly travelling to London for our concert at the Royal Albert Hall.
Over 2,500 singers will miss performing together - but that’s not going to stop us singing! We’re creating
our very own version of AC Academy Does the Royal Albert Hall – virtually – so we can all get together
and sing our hearts out from our own living rooms. Our professional singers, AC Academy Scholars and
choir leaders will all feature on a background of previous performances from the world’s most iconic
There will be an EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE for performers, schools and families on Wednesday 3 June at 2pm
and 7pm, and on Friday 5th June it goes live to the nation at 7pm. A Youtube link will be put on the Home Learning page of the school website on Wednesday morning to enable you to access the concert and it will go live at 2pm and then again at 7pm.
BUT that’s not all, we’re making it part of a whole Virtual Festival Week (1-5 June). The full programme is
attached but here’s a flavour of what’s going on:
Throughout the week there will be live Sing N Shine sessions with Patrick for children and young people
(daily at 10am). They’re open to everyone via YouTube and Patrick will take you through the songs you’ll
be singing at AC Academy Does the Virtual Royal Albert Hall.
There is also a fantastic competition to get children’s creative juices. There are 3 categories and they can
enter just one or all three:
1. Create It!
Re-create the iconic Royal Albert Hall building as creatively as possible. You can draw it, paint it or
build it with things you might have at home - let your imagination go wild and let’s see what you
can come up with!
2. Sing it!
One of the songs in our Virtual Royal Albert Hall concert is ‘Symphony’ by Clean Bandit. We’d like
you to write some new words to either the verse or chorus on the theme of ‘Lockdown’. It might
be about how lockdown has affected you, or about what you are looking forward to when we
have a little more freedom to move around. Either write the words or perform the song if you
3. Dance It!
We’d like you to come up with some new dance moves to one of the songs from the Royal Albert
Hall programme – so it could be to the Drunken Sailor, Symphony, You raise me up, a song from
the Mama Mia medley, whichever you think would benefit from some great moves!
The competition is open to anyone under the age of 18 and closes on Thursday 4th June at 12noon. We
will announce the winners on Friday 5th June at 12.30pm on our social media channels, where we will also
show the winning entries. This is all about getting involved and having some fun but there are also some
£10 gift vouchers up for grabs so what are you waiting for - get creative!! To enter there is a simple online entry form here:
Please note that video entries should be no more than 30 seconds long.
We’ll have singing workshops for our Voice Squad workplace choirs; and twice daily Sing with Simon
sessions for our Voice Squads in retirement villages and care homes. We will also be launching a brand
new programme ‘Unlocking Musical Memories’ which will see our musicians perform specific sessions for
those suffering with dementia, working in partnership with organisations across the UK.
At 6pm each evening, grab a drink and settle in for a Question & Answer interview with some of the
fantastic performers we love working with: actor Mark Williams (known to millions as Arthur Weasley
(Harry Potter) Father Brown (BBC), international baritone Roderick Williams, wine writer and
broadcaster Oz Clarke and celebrated composer and conductor John Rutter, as well as a crafty beer with
Christopher Monks and senior AC Academy leaders at 6pm on Friday.
So do join us from Monday 1 June for a fantastic Festival Week and let’s raise the roof of a virtual Royal
Albert Hall. Follow us on Facebook and YouTube ahead of the Festival week and keep in touch via social media using the hashtag #ACvirtualRAH.

Friday 24th April
Hello Year 5s!
We really miss seeing you each day and we are busy making plans for the exciting day that we can return to school. This got us thinking about some questions that we would like to ask you so that we can think about how to make your learning as exciting as possible when we are lucky enough to teach you again. It will also help us complete some jobs that we are doing from home! It would be amazing if you could talk to your parents about these and then send us an email with your thoughts
If you could email us sometime next week that would be amazing!! (It'll also be great to hear how you all are)
Mr Carpmail. Mrs Fatile and Mrs Shenton
P.S. We three are all really well, as are Mrs Underwood, Mrs Callaway and Mrs Cooke.
