Good morning guys and a huge well done for making it to the end of your last week of Year 5. We know that this is not how you wanted to end the school year and how much many of you have missed school. We wish that we could give you all a massive hug before you go and enjoy your (well earned) summer holidays! As your teachers, we have been blown away by how resilient and hard working you have continued to be during these crazy times. We are so proud of every single one of you and the progress that you have made this year. We hope that when you read your school reports this week, you are just as proud of yourselves as we are of you. It has been lovely to see how you have all grown into such mature, kind and hard-working members of our Moston Lane family and we can’t wait to see what you all achieve in Year 6 next year! Thank you for brightening our days and making us laugh every single day. We have had a blast this year and we hope that you have too! Have a fantastic summer holiday everyone!
Love Miss Buckley, Miss Mottram and Mr McCluskey xx

Good morning everyone! We can’t believe that this is your final week in Year 5. What a crazy and unpredictable year it has been! We are so proud of you all for how hard you have worked and how resilient you have been during your learning at home and at school. This week we will be reflecting on the year and thinking ahead to September ready for Year 6! Your writing challenges this week will link to the final week of our art competition so make sure that you read the rules carefully and send us your entries before the end of the week!
In reading today, we are going to head over to BBC Bitesize to join their daily book club! Today’s book is Be Amazing! A guide to being your own champion and was written by Sir Chris Hoy. Using the book, you will learn how to summarise the text and write a message of your own to Chris Hoy.
