Welcome to Year 5

Mrs Khan and Mrs  Roberts

Dear Year 5 -                                   HAPPY EASTER HOLIDAYS!. 

Enjoy your two weeks off!  There will be no new work posted on the web page until after the Easter holidays. Try and catch up on any work that you may have missed from weeks 1 and 2. 

Please continue to use the home learning White Rose maths link after the holidays as your main maths learning. There are some additional power points that are added weekly  at the bottom of the web page for additional practise should you require that.  

Much love to you all from Mrs Khan and Mrs Roberts!! :-) 


 This section of our class page is is dedicated to home learning. In support of all those children who are currently staying at home, we shall be posting a weekly bank of learning activities. Below, we have provided links to familiar websites such as TT Rockstars and MyMaths, which can be accessed daily using the individual login details provided. Additionally, we will upload reading, writing and maths materials onto this page.

It is important to note that we have been realistic in terms of what we are expecting from the children during their time out of the classroom. Most of the content provided will be in line with our current curriculum planning, thus enabling a certain degree of continuity away from the classroom. We are mindful of the varied circumstances at present, so we have worked hard to balance what can be achieved at home without specific equipment and teaching expertise. Establishing a routine can help but we also know that being able to pick and choose activities is equally helpful. Below is plenty of maths and English work to keep the childrens' learning going.

School is closed for most pupils from the end of Friday 20th March. This page now has details of our HOME LEARNING work. We would like all children to make sure My Maths is up to date and to get on with TT Rockstars as much as possible. Do lots of reading. 

We recognise that people will have different access to technology and different amount of adult support.  Do what you can, when you can and try not to worry!

In year 5, pupils are expected to complete weekly homework. Homework will be set every Wednesday in Spelling Homework books and this is due in the following Monday please. In addition pupils are expected to change their reading book and read regularly at home. 

PE is every Wednesday and Thursday.  Please ensure your child has labelled PE kit in school.  In KS2 we prefer children to wear trainers rather than plimsolls as they give better support.
