Hello Year 5,
We hope that you are all staying fit and well. Please find your latest Home Learning activities below. There is a Maths and English activity for each day. They come with a Powerpoint, but don’t worry if you don’t have Powerpoint on your computer, all the activities are available on the PDF slides. There are also sheets which you can print off, but to save your paper and ink, you can simply write the answers in your Home Learner book.

CLOSURE ADDITIONAL TASKS
I hope that you are all enjoying this extremely pleasant weather (in your gardens or on a family walk). I am missing you all! This is a difficult time for you, but it's not forever, and hopefully we will be back in our classroom soon. I have some additional learning tasks for you. These are listed here, but if you scroll down to the bottom there are websites to look at too. Remember, don't get stressed about the amount, these are just here for ideas - I've put on lots so you can do it if you run out, but I know that you will be learning in other ways too (baking, gardening, crafting). Keeping your minds and bodies active in any way that you can will be great. Keep practising those times tables too.
*Visit White Rose Maths (currently free) and complete any units you wish - I recommend that you concentrate on areas you feel you need to work on. No need to print anything; just work like we do in school, using the screen as if it were a textbook https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/

Welcome to Year 5
My name is Mrs. Jolly and I am the class teacher for Year 5. We are so lucky this year to have Mrs. Southern as Teaching Assistants this year.
Year 5 is an exciting and challenging year for the children. In Upper Key Stage 2, children are expected to take a more mature and independent approach towards learning. These skills are developed throughout the year during a variety of tasks and lessons and provide the key foundations that prepare our children for the challenges of year 6.
This year, your child will enjoy a wide and varied range of lessons. Our Creative Curriculum topic will allow the children to explore the vastness of North America. Our Science will see them journeying further afield into OUTER SPACE - but don't worry, they'll be back for home time! In Maths, they will continue to develop their skills in number, shape and measures and use them to solve real life problems. In Music, the children will be learning to play the ukulele with me every Tuesday afternoon.
Our P.E. sessions will be held on Monday afternoon, so please ensure that your child has their kit in school.
Please call in after school should you have any questions or concerns about your child's learning.
Please see the Topic Grids below for a the curriculum overviews for each term.
