In Year 5, we take great pride in our classwork and homework as we understand the importance of being responsible for our own learning. We are focused on our targets and what we need to do in order to achieve them. Most of all, we have fun and enjoy being part of our wonderful school.
Our teachers in Year 5 are Mrs. Duckworth, Miss Wilson, Mrs. Woolnough and Miss Wikeley. We are also very lucky to have Mrs. Fisher and Mrs. Weston to support us with our learning. Mrs. Woods also supports the teachers in Class 11.
English and Maths homework will be set every Friday. Maths homework is set on My Maths and your child will need to complete this work online. English homework will be sent home each week and needs to be returned to school by the following Wednesday.
Class 11 – Spellings will be set every Friday and tested the following Friday. Children will bring their spellings home in a book, which they should use to practise their words. These must be in school every Friday in order for new words to be set.
Class 12 – Spellings will be set every Tuesday and tested the following Tuesday. Children will bring their spellings home in a book, which they should use to practise their words. These must be in school every Friday in order for new words to be set.
Times Tables Tests
The children will be tested on their times tables every Tuesday. They will be informed which times tables they will be tested on every Tuesday. They will then be tested the following week.
Class 11 – PE will take place on Tuesday and Friday.
Class 12 – PE will take place on Monday and Thursday.
Please make sure the appropriate kit is in school.

Welcome back to Summer Term 2!
Welcome back! We hope you’ve had a lovely week at home and have had lots of fun. Below you can find your home learning activities for today. Remember that you do not have to print out all the sheets that get posted. As long as you can view them on a screen, you can just transfer your answers into your books or onto a piece of paper.
Monday 1st June.
9am (30 mins) – YouTube PE with Joe Wicks. Why not start the day with some exercise? It will help you get ready to learn and make you feel good at the start of the day.
We need to continually revise past skills to ensure we have a deep understanding. This week we will focus on revising some of the things we have learnt in Year 5 so far.
So today we will start with revising our number skills. Answer questions on page 5 in your Target Your Maths books. Choose either section A, B or C to complete. You can also complete some of the challenge questions from I See Reasoning.
There are some reading comprehension activities set for you to do on Literacy Planet.
Here are this week’s spellings to start learning: effect affect cereal serial altar alter stationary stationery compliment complements
It was recently the Muslim festival of Ramadan, which ended with the celebration of Eid. Over the next two weeks we will be learning a little about both of these special times. Today we start with looking at Ramadan.
You will start with looking at a short video about this festival, before answering some questions related to it.
Please check our school website for a link to a new collective worship each day. This can be found by clicking just above the rainbow icon on the “Stay at Home Stay Busy “page.
Positive Thoughts Diary.
This week we would like you to record a positive thought at the end of each day. Think back and reflect on the day. There may have been things that weren’t so great about the day, but try to always find something that went well. Only positive thoughts are allowed in this diary!
Have a lovely first day back and see you all tomorrow!
Why not also take a look at our new Stay Home and Stay Busy page?! It includes lots of fun activities and ideas for you to try!
What else should I do each day?
If you have finished the work set each day, there are lots of things you can do to help your learning while we’re not in school. Purple Mash will help you with your coding and all sorts of skills. TTRockstars will help your rapid recall of multiplication and division facts and trust us, you can never have too much practice of that! MyMaths has online lessons of every topic you can think of, and Literacy Planet is a fabulous new resource that helps you with your spelling, reading, punctuation and grammar.
Oh, and don’t forget, read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read, read and….erm, what was the last one?…READ!!
Remember, these next few weeks are an important part of history. You are living through it. Why don’t you write down your feelings and activities each day in a journal? One day, many years from now, you’ll be able to tell people what you got up to each day while schools were closed. Lots of diaries from history have been published and become very famous – they are a great way for people in the future to learn how people lived and how they spent their days.
Joe Wicks’ Daily PE lessons:
Although he’s not quite as fit, healthy and sporty as the Year 5 teachers, Joe Wicks is leading daily 30 minute PE workouts each morning at 9am on YouTube. So, while we might have to do without our Daily Mile (unless, of course, you’ve got a race track in your garden) for the time being, Joe here will make sure you’re exercising and starting your day off right! He’s not Mr Hawthorne, but he’ll do.
Audible, which is run by Amazon, has very kindly made hundreds of audiobooks (books which are read aloud to you) FREE. You don’t need a login or bank card, but please ask your grown-ups at home to help you find books which are suitable. Click here.
This week’s First News:
Every week, we will post an online PDF version of the children’s newspaper ‘First News’. It’s a brilliant way to keep up-to-date with what’s going on in the world with simple, easy-to-understand language while still introducing you to new vocabulary.
We know you love watching Newsround, so here’s the link. It’s usually updated three times a day. If there’s anything on the news that upsets you, don’t forget to speak to an adult. These are tricky and uncertain times, but what do you get after heavy rain? Rainbows, sun and bright blue skies 🙂
If we find something else we think you’d like, we will be sure to post it here. We’re still your teachers, you’re still our children, and we’re still here for you (virtually!).
Parents: please send any enquiries to email@example.com. Someone will aim to get back to you as quickly as possible.
