Year 5 Home Learning

Thank you


I would like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all those families who have engaged so well with the home learning over the past months.  Your hard work in the face of very challenging circumstances has been truly humbling and I am so grateful for all the support you have shown your children and the school.

I hope you have a wonderful summer break. I wish all the Year 6s the very best of luck and I look forward to seeing all the 2020 Hedgehogs  in September.

Take care,

Claire Fowler

Home Learning Week Beginning 4th May

Please start with the Home Learning document before exploring the other work - it will explain some of the changes I have made.  I have tried to give alternatives for literacy and maths this week so there are more 'standard' maths and literacy activities, including a second, two-week Talk for Writing unit but I have added alternatives of more creative work if you fancy a change. Mrs Hall has added some French this week.

The Science investigation continues but I have left the whole Powerpoint so that some people can join in with the investigation if they haven't had time yet.  There is a new Art activity and new Computing but history and DT are the same for this week.

Home Learning Week Beginning 27th April

Here is another week of suggestions for creative work. 

The maths, spellings and literacy are separate files - please click on the links below. There are also separate Powerpoints to support learning in science, art and history and a link to the e-safety learning.


 I am happy for you to email your child's spelling score via the Hedgehogs email and I'll update my records. (Don't forget - there is the Year 5/6 list that children can practise as well.) If you have any queries, please do email.

Times Tables Rock Stars: Mrs Radhamma has set a tournament between Year 5 and Year 6.  Ends 3pm Friday - see if you can beat the other year group!


A useful activity children could do is to learn to touch type.  Here is a link to a BBC website that teaches this skill in a fun way:
