Home Learning

Hello everyone! We are all set to go with our home learning and we are looking forward to getting started! You will all have been emailed a zoom link by Monday 11th January for you to log into your daily zoom Maths and English lessons along with the rest of the children who are here at school. All the resources for our Zoom sessions are below, but you will also need a pen, pencil, ruler and some paper!


Below is a timetable for you to follow at home. Please stick to this timetable as closely as possible. It is so important to keep learning even while you’re at home! Do your best and be honest with yourself, that’s all you can do 😊

Spelling (Spring 2)

Welcome to Year 5!


Our lovely Year Fives are taught by Miss Richards and supported by Mrs Tighe, Mrs Niell and Mrs Davey.


Your continued support in your child's learning journey is essential. Your child will be expected to bring their reading book to and from school every day, as well as their book bag or backpack. Reading stamina (how long they can read for, maintaining focus and understanding) is essential and regular reading practise will help to build this. Children can read to you, another adult, a sibling or themselves and are encouraged to read a variety of different texts. We massively encourage you to give your child a helping hand along the way with regular encouragement, discussion and questioning. It will benefit them greatly!


Homework folders will be sent home on a Friday, containing spelling practise, a writing/grammar task and a maths task. Their homework will be due in on the following Wednesday. It is vital that homework is completed and brought into school on time. They will be given clear instructions but if they struggle, please encourage them to ask an adult in the classroom for help. They are also welcome to attend the weekly Year 5 homework club after school on a Tuesday to complete their homework with adult support.


Year 5 have PE on a Monday afternoon and must have their full kit in school.

Autumn Festival

Year 5 have had a fun, busy, exciting day celebrating Autumn! We made Autumn wreaths using multicoloured leaves; turned over soil and planted daffodils and hyacinths; and decorated pumpkins using lots of different types of dry media. We learned lots of things about Autumn in general, but looked more specifically at Barbados and how they celebrate their Harvest Festival. They have their celebrations in August and there is a huge parade from morning until night, all around the town. We cooked jerk rice and peas, which is a traditional Caribbean dish. It was very spicy! We also made flamboyant, colourful, vibrant headdresses which Bajan people wear during the Crop Over parade. What a fun day!
