This week's French challenge

by Madame Norris

Bonjour year 5!

This week, I would like you to do a poster in French about yourself including:

·       How you feel

·       Your name

·       Your age

·       Your birthday

·       Where you live

You could also add:

·       Your hair colour

·       Your eye colour

·       Your height

To make this more creative, you could draw and colour your poster or you could do a painting of yourself. You could even use clay/play dough or make up video using Playmobil or Lego characters. You can either write the sentences in French or film yourself saying them!

Please, send me all your amazing work on my email:



There are also more games on Purple Mash.

Have fun! Bonne chance!

Madame Norris

A big 'thank you' to the staff at Papa John's for our pizza lunch today!

Grammar help at home!

by Mrs Collier

We are fantastic at grammar at Old Moat, but I know that it can be hard to remember some of those technical terms when you're on your own at home.  ENGLICIOUS is a fantastic free website that will help you.  There are some good games to play and everything is explained clearly.  I've put a couple of screenshots here to help you if you are confused by the site.  

Here's the link:

Harry Potter at home

by Mr Keeley

Hi Everyone,

I think we all need a bit of magic in our lives at the moment. JK Rowling has created a new website full of Harry Potter content to keep you interested during lockdown. You can even listen to the first book "The Philosopher's Stone" for free. 

Please visit https://www.wizardingworld.com/collections/harry-potter-at-home
