Year 5 Home Learning

We have included a number of links to recognised websites below to help you find suitable material. These links were good when we last checked them and we will be regularly checking that they do not become unsuitable. However, please remember that external sites are not under our control and their content may change without warning. We provide these links as a service and cannot guarantee the continued suitability.

This is our final week in Year 5, we hope you have enjoyed our farewell videos and we are sad to be saying goodbye to Miss Sheridan. We wish you all a healthy and happy Summer. Thank you for all your gifts and good wishes. This webpage will still have links and activities available throughout the Summer.

Teacher Messages WB Monday 13th July 2020

Please read the teacher message for advice on this week's work for English, Maths and IPC

Message: Mrs HorswillMessage: Miss SheridanMessage; Miss Chislett


During our phone calls many parents are asking about what should have been completed in Year 5; below is a link to the Year 5 standards in Reading and Writing, for working towards expected standard, expected standard and greater depth standard and the KPI for Maths. In reading and writing we would look for these standards across a range of work and contexts and with the Maths, we would look for understanding and application using reasoning and problem solving. They are not intended to be used as tick lists. These match the National Curriculum Expectations for Year 5.
