Dear parents and children,

Well done Y5, you have now completed your first week of learning at home. I hope that you and your family are all well. I am missing coming in to teach you all. If you have any photos of things that you have been up to or pieces of work you are proud of, it would be lovely to see them, you could email a photo to me. Remember to check your answers for Maths please. I have put them in the files to download section and will leave them there for a week.

For Year 5 children, I am suggesting that your daily home learning should consist of

  • An English activity (45 minutes)
  • A Maths activity (45 minutes)
  • An extra activity which will vary each week (30 minutes)
  • Reading (20 - 30 minutes)

Along with this, I will give you a list of spellings to learn each week.

For more books to read at home, Oxford Owl offer a free e-book library. This is an excellent resource for home learning in the coming weeks. 

Whilst you are learning at home, I would like you to record all of your work in your Home Learning book please so that I can look at it when you return to school.

I have also loaded a home learning grid that you can choose activities from, if you wish. Remember to get some fresh air and get out into the garden, play some games, stay safe and kind. I know how hard you have worked all year and that you will continue to take a pride in your learningsmiley

Week beginning Monday 30th March


  • Complete worksheets 6 to 10 of Chapter 1 in your Maths workbook (try one per day). You could look for more examples online if you have computer access and would like to challenge yourself.
  • Roll a dice to create a 3-digit number multiplied by 2-digit multiplication question. Work out the calculation. Repeat 6 times. 
  • Practise on TT Rockstars


  1. Start to draft out your biography on the famous person you have chosen. Remember to punctuate your work accurately, use relative clauses, fronted adverbials and brackets. Draft your work carefully then edit and present it.  (This will probably take you 2 or 3 days).
  2. Make a storyboard retelling the Easter Story. You only need to write 3 or 4 sentences for each picture. I have put a template in the files to download or you can just draw your own. (2 days) . There is a link below where you can remind yourself of the story if you need to.
  3. Read for 20 – 30 minutes per day.
  4. Learn your spellings and ask someone at home to test you. Find the meaning of those words and write a sentence using each word that shows you understand the meaning of it. Record how many you got right in your Home Learning Book on the inside back cover.















Spend some time practising your Amasing songs and moves. The performance is going ahead but there will be a change of date. I will let you know the details when I know them.


Practise your ball skills in the garden if you can, take part in PE with Joe Wicks or try an online kids yoga class.


As well as Oxford Owl, there are stories for you to listen to at Logins and bank details are not needed. There are some great stories here. I’m going to listen to some too. Let me know if you find one that you would like to recommend.

30 Day Lego Challenge!

David Walliams will be releasing an audio story every day for the next 30 days for free. Enjoy!



We have decided to put together a super cool fun timetable of all things HOD once a day. 

We will be streaming LIVE on our HOUSE OF DANCE LTD Facebook page for the following sessions You are more than welcome to do both, we just thought it would be nice to tailor them to specific ages.

 We also have our Pre-recorded sessions on our YouTube channel should you wish to use those as well.
