Year 5 Home Learning

Welcome to Year 5's Home Learning Page 

Emergency Water Closure 17.09.21

Morning everyone, well this is a strange day, but we would like you to access some home learning until we can get you back in.


We have been looking at our time tables this term and I have been so impressed with your knowledge. Have a go at the sheet below and bring it into school for me to look at. There are house points at stake!

OH NO!!! The Fairground mascot, Keith the Kangaroo, has been hidden and you have been asked to find him before the big procession later today.  A note has been left giving information to help you, but to read it, you need to first crack the code.  Just to make it harder one of the words might be an anagram (a muddled up word)!!  Can you solve it in time to get Keith back before the procession? Click on the resource below and help him!


We have been enjoying The Lion the Wardrobe. I don't know about you, but one of my favourite characters is the White Witch. Witches are all over film, history and books. I would like you research Witches and create a fact page. You could look at witches in stories you have read or have seen in a film for e.g. Wizard of Oz, The Witches by Roald Dahl or the Disney witches. You could even look at the Pendle Witches, which is a wonderful piece of local history. 

Think about their powers, what they look like, what they wear, who their helpers are and what they want. You could draw pictures or even create Top Trump Cards. Whatever you do, remember to bring it for me to look at.

Don't forget to get out and Beat the Street! Make sure you are with an adult, go out and explore, pick up points and let's win this! Have fun.

Date: Monday 1st March to Friday 5th March

Welcome to the last week of home learning! I am really looking forward to seeing you all in class soon! 

Let's not let the momentum and routines we have established stop this week. Remember that you will find the Maths so much easier if you attend the Zoom meetings every day. Also, remember to please not rush through your work before you have attended the Zoom lessons - they are to help you. 

Today's Zooms are at 11:00 for Maths and 3:00 for our class story.

Zoom Times


This week, to go along with your English, in your packs you have work to do each day on punctuating dialogue: 

How to skin a bear direct speech punctuation

Raiders peril direct speech punctuation

Using dialogue to advance the action

Using dialogue to create tension

Using dialogue to describe characters

It would be wonderful to see great dialogue in your English this week!



This week you will carry on with the theme of micro-organisms, scientists and the work of the NHS through your English. You will be writing your own narrative based on the real life information you have found.

Try to practise the spellings in your folder every day for about 20 minutes. Do a different activity like we do in class each day, e.g. turn them into pictures, write as many in 30 seconds as you can, make a long sentence with as many of the words as possible.












Complete the reading comprehension in your pack about the NHS.

This week we are moving onto fractions. I think this unit of work will be tricky to do as home learning but I am sure you will try your hardest to understand it and I will do my best to support you. I am going to do as many Zoom meetings as possible to help you and also maybe post some instructional videos on here - so please look out for these!
