Welcome to the Year 5 page.
Hi Year 5,
I hope you've had a lovely Easter and have adjusted to life at home. Hopefully you've enjoyed finding new ways to keep yourselves busy and you're all being helpful around the house! Well done if you've been keeping up to date with your home learning. I appreciate that it must be difficult for some of you to do this so don't worry if you've not done everything - just keep doing your best!
I have uploaded work for the first week of the summer term beginning with 'w.b. 20th April Y5 Home Learning Plan' which you should read before opening the files below. There is enough work for the whole week and includes most subjects on our curriculum. Some power points and activities are given as links on the plan and some are saved as files below - I hope I've laid it out clearly enough for you to be able to find everything. We have been busy over the Easter holidays working on a more interactive platform for your home learning, which will hopefully be easier to navigate - watch this space...
All of the English work is dated, to help you spread it over the week evenly, but of course you are free to do the work whenever you can! If you struggle to fit everything in, please prioritise the Maths work as everything we do will be built upon weekly and of course will be continued in Year 6.
Finally, don't worry if you don't have access to a printer. You can look at the activity sheets on your computer or tablet and then use your home learning exercise books to write your answers.
Keep working hard and stay well,
I hope your first few weeks at home have gone well. Did you join in with the Joe Wicks workout? Or maybe you've found another way to keep active? Remember, it's really important to find ways of keeping yourself fit and healthy during this time at home. Hopefully you've enjoyed creating some street art too. I'd love to see some of this when we're all back at school - or any other artistic projects you've been working on!
Today, I enjoyed some Easter baking and thought you might like to try the same recipe. Follow the instructions on the video below to make your own Easter egg blondies. I have also added written instructions to the files saved at the bottom of this page. Why not take photos of each step and make your own instructions video? Have fun (and don't eat them all at once...!)
Please ensure you have looked at the Maths work for last week, which was some really really important work on fractions! We will be building upon this after Easter. There is also a unit of Geography that I would like you to look at, as well as a story writing task for you try over the Easter holidays. It is important that you keep up your writing skills - you've all worked so hard to improve them this year - so spend some time on this activity.
After Easter, there will be work for each subject set every week with a suggested timetable.
Below are some helpful websites to help you whilst you're learning at home:
