Dear all, I hope you are well. 

In these strange times,  we have to pull together, please regulary check the web page for Class 5 as I will put up ideas to aid your children's learning.

Stay safe and stay home.


For all the Harry Potter fans in Year 5 why not try this website set up by JK Rowling.


KS2 Bitesize is a revision website which is tailored to support children in KS2 in the UK. There are activities, information, games and parent pages to support your child's learning. Please click on the link.

KS2 Bitesize


Well done to many of you for going on Purple Mash and completing some of the 2dos. Please have a look at the Science and History work I have set as well as the Coding work. There is a Science sheet to download below to help you with your Life Cycle learning. 




Please click on the link below for some daily prayers aimed for children. In this time of isolation and uncertainty we need to remember that God is always with us.

Holy Week Activities

Next week is Holy Week. Please click on the Files to Download link below titled Holy Week Home Resources for creative ideas to journey through Holy Week with your children. 


Click on the link Files to Download to do an activity about Judas Iscariot. Google the scripture if you have not got a Bible at home. 



Please click on the link below for individual maths lessons from White Rose Hub - they look good. You can always do the answers on paper or in the exercise book you were given if you can't print them off.

I have challenged some of you on TT Rockstars. Please take up the challenge!

Also remember KS2 Bitesize - see the link.

TIMES TABLES: All children should know all times tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4. Instant recall is any times table answered within 5 seconds. Go daily on TT Rockstars to improve your scores.





It is so important for your child to be reading regularly. Below click the link for ideas on what kind of books are suitable for Year 5.



Cosmic Kids Yoga on Youtube is a good workout with a themed story to go with it  e.g Star Wars and Disney's Moana. Why not try it out!



Please click on the relevant pages below for HOME Learning whilst school is closed. Scroll down to the Files to Download section and first look at the "Information Sheet Year 5 Home Learning School Closure" for information on all subjects. A lot of work has been set on Purple Mash - your child has their own login.

Science - why not try some activities suggested on the link below. Are you going to be a future scientist, engineer? They are the people we are relying on right now as well as our wonderful NHS.


Parents - each day, a local music teacher is putting a half hour singing lesson on their Facebook page Little Belters. She will release each day's lesson at 1:30pm each school day. She starts with warm up activities, followed by part of  the song, line by line and then at the end to the backing track.



Click on the Anglo Saxon Lettering  Powerpoint below in the Files to download and have a go at creating your own. 

Use the sheet provided in your pack to have a go at your initials. 



We welcome all parents and children to Year 5's webpage. Year 5 is an important year in which we hope to see the pupils grow to be much more independent, have more confidence and begin to express their own opinions in a mature manner.
