Welcome to our Year 5 blog

Come here for weekly updates!

Home Learning Guidance:


In the event that your household has to self isolate or you are awaiting test results, work will be assigned by your class teacher on Google Classroom.


The work is assigned as a subject and split into days within this. Please ensure that you aim to complete one maths and one English activity a day as well as one science unit over the course of a week.


Teachers will be unable to replenish resources if they are worked through too quickly. If you’d like your child to access additional practice, please use ReadTheory, SpellingShed and Mathletics. If you have any problems logging in, contact

How to access Google Classrooms

18th September 2020


It has been another busy week in Year 5 and we would like to say a big 'well done' to all the children, who have worked incredibly hard.


In Maths, we began the week learning about negative numbers, moving onto Roman numerals on Thursday and Friday. This certainly got some of us thinking!


In English, we have focussed on some key skills including the use of pronouns in our sentences. The teachers are impressed that the children are really starting to structure their sentences in different ways!


We have also been working on our Christmas cards, but we obviously need to keep this a secret until you can get to see and purchase them. Watch this space!


We hope you all have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend, thank you for your ongoing support.

Year 5 have worked incredibly hard during their first full week back and we are very proud of how well the children have settled back into school! During the week, we have been widening our vocabulary choices and writing a variety of sentence types in English, rounding numbers to 10, 100, 1,000, 10,000 and 100,000 in Maths and testing out parachutes in Science!


Hopefully, all the children have now been able to access the websites they need to for their homework. Please don't hesitate to come and talk to us if you are having any problems logging in.


Wishing you all a lovely weekend!
