CLICK HERE - Friday 5th February Schedule

Welcome Year 5 to a new week of home learning! I hope you have had a lovely weekend.

I am so proud of how many of you are now set in a routine for your home learning and have been attending our Zoom meetings. I look forward to seeing more of the work you have completed this week. 

Today's Zooms are at 9:30 for English, 11:00 for Maths, 2:00 for Science and 3:00 for everyone to listen to our class novel. 

Zoom Times

All your work for this week is on here and your paper copy packs are at the school office if you haven't already picked one up. All the links to the worksheets and other resources needed are on this page. I will also continue to post a little schedule for each day at the top of this page to try to make things easier for you.

Don't forget to keep practising your timestables and try reading everyday. I have set your Active Learn account to match your reading band colour in school - so please start using this daily to continue reading. I look forward to some challenges from you on TT Rockstars!

If you need any help or if you want to send in your completed work including photos, please send these to your class email which will be checked daily   

Please try to do as much of the work as possible because you were all making fantastic progress last term!

Look after yourselves and your family and please be kind to those that are trying to help you with your home learning! 

When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.


This week, to go along with your English, in your packs you have work each day on using commas to clarify meaning.

This powerpoint will explain and then point out which worksheet to do. You can come back to the powerpoint each day if you need to: Commas to clarify meaning powerpoint

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 Moon.

This week we are carrying on with 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!

This term we will be studying the ancient Maya civilisation who flourished in Central America and mysteriously disappeared in the 1600s... 

This week you will learn about the Maya ball game called: pok-ta-pok, pitz or pok-a-tok (depending where you do your research!). Use these websites to find as much information as possible and then create your own 3D Maya ball game court with players! I can't wait to see them!
