Hello Year 5.

For those of you who find access to the internet challenging, keep reading and use paper to practise times tables and calculations for the four operations (รท+-x)

The Year 5 Home Learning Outline below will give you all of the details that you will need for your leaning this week. The Outine will tell you everything that you need to do and where you can find the resources to help you with this leaning.

Welcome to the Year 5 class page! 

In Year 5 we work together to ensure all children achieve to the best of their potential. Throughout Year 5 the children will use their 'super powers' to suceed and progress, developing knowledge and skills.

We will continue to follow the example of Jesus to help us to remember how to treat each other and be the best we can be.

Year 5 LTP outlines what we will cover this year in each subject

  • What homework do Y5 complete?

    Homework will reinforce the key skills of reading, spelling and maths fluency.  The children will be given homework every Friday and it is to be returned by the following Friday. Each week the children will be expected to complete:

    • a spelling task
    • home reading
    • a maths fluency activity based on the maths topic of the week
  • What days are PE in Y5?

    PE takes place on a Monday and a Wednesday.  It is best if the children bring in their PE kit and leave it in school.  They can take it home at the end of each half term for a freshen up (or more regularly if you wish).

  • What can I do to help?
    • Please support you children with their homework and listen to them read as often as possible. 
    • All children have access to the secure school website, which is free for them to use and is packed full of educational games and activities for them to work through. 
    • They are able to access the school Bug Club (via the website ActiveLearn) which is a library of ebooks for them to read and complete related questions.  This will supplement everything they learn in school and can be accessed on any platform.
    • They also have access to Times Table Rockstars which is an online platform aimed at improving their speed and accuracy in recall of their times table facts.
    • Finally, the children have access to Spelling Shed which is a great online platform to encourage the children to practise their weekly spellings through a range of games and activities.


In RE this half term are going to be studing the parable of 'The Lost Son'. We will look at the messages that we can take from the story and the links that we can make to the choices that we make in our own lives.
