Year 5

Welcome to the Class of 2021.



It is September 2020 and we are all excited to have returned to school.


However our 'new normal' means that on occasion some of us may not be in school.  If that is the case, we still have learning activities for you to complete. Let us all work together to move steadily forwards on our learning journey together.


Just like a normal day in school, you should aim for one mathematics session, one English session and one other topic of your own choice every day.  Try to read at least one chapter of your book - even better if you could read with someone or chat to them about what you are reading. 

Week beginning Monday 12th October
Please note, English this term is based on the book, 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. Let us know if you need a copy!
WC 5.10.20

Please note, English this term is focussed on the book 'Street Child' by Berlie Doherty. This links with our topic on 'The Industrial Revolution'. If you are unable to get hold of a copy let us know! Thanks.

Hello Year 5 

It is now officially Summer term 2! That means in a short time it will be the 6 week holidays.

While you are at home we will add your home learning onto this page from now on. smiley 

We are missing you lots and are so proud of you all.

We have loved seeing what you have been up to on your blogs, keep updating us! 


Home Learning Packs are available from the office every Monday.

However, we have tried to make as many of the activities as possible none worksheet related so questions and tasks can be done on paper. 

SPAG week 3

We would like you to try the questions and then look at the powerpoints to find the answers and how you would correctly answer it on a SPAG test in readiness for Year 6.
