Year 5 Home Learning
This page will be updated regularly with work, activities and ideas of things your child can access whilst at home.
This is a vey strange time for us all, but please do not worry about any of the work on this page. Do what you can, stay safe and enjoy spending time with your loved ones.
Sending love to you all,
If your child is in Nurture Group there is separate work set for them on the Nurture Group Home Learning page.
General ideas and activities
If you want to continue our Lent Challenge, please click on the link above. Well done to the people who have learnt their quotes so far. If you wanted to, you could look at one quote per day in your prayer/reflection time.
Whilst we are all indoors, it is important to try and keep fit. Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is doing PE lessons on his YouTube channel everyday at 9:00am. If you have access to the internet, it would be a great way to get the whole family moving. If you cannot access the channel at 9:00am, you can find it on YouTube at any point.
Leeds Rhinos Fitness Challenge
If you're looking for another way to keep fit click on the link below and you will find a challenge they have set for you.
David Walliams Elevenses
David Walliams is sharing audio books (recordings of him reading his stories) which would be great for to listen to with your family. Click on the link below for this.
Carol Vorderman is offering subscription to her maths website for free. Click on the link below to have a look.
Make a rainbow
If you are feeling creative, one thing you could do is create a rainbow and display it in your window. People are doing this to spread a little joy in this very difficult time.
Happy Easter holidays!
You have reached the holidays and now deserve a break. I am so proud of all of you completing the work on the website and thank you to all the parents and carers who have supported us with this. Here you will find lots of ideas of activities you can do during the holidays.
You don't have to do them all, but I would like you all to try Task One - A Learning Log.
If you want to do any of the other tasks, you can do them in any order and pick and choose which ones you would like to do.
Task One - A Learning Log
Can you create a Learning Log on the story of Easter? Think about why we celebrate Easter and what it stands for. You can research the Easter story and look at how it is celebrated. If you are not able to research, you can tell me everything you already know. We discussed Learning Logs before we broke up, but below is a sheet which will explain what to do and gives some examples. Please send me pictures of your Learning Logs via email as I would love to see them and maybe put some on the Home Learning Showcase!
Task Two - SPaG Revision
Task Three - Making an Easter Card
Task Four - Holy Week Resources
Have a look at the resources below. There are some lovely ideas for Holy Week.
Task Five - Easter at home activities from the Diocese
Have a look at these resources from the Diocese. They have some lovely activities in them.
Task Six - Make a time capsule
Here are resources to help you make a time capsule.
Task Seven - Pictures for the Nightingale Hospital
The Nightingale Hospital is a large hospital that has been built in just two weeks to help look after people at this difficult time. They are wanting to fill the walls of the hospital with bright, colourful pictures from children around the country. Can you create a picture that will make people smile and feel cheerful?
They are asking you not to send the pictures by post, so if you email me your picture I can make sure they get them.
Task Eight - Make your own table football
If you have an old shoebox at home, have a go at making your own table football game like the picture below.
Note - please make sure you ask permission from your parent/carer before you use anything at home.
You will need: a shoe box, wood/straws/anthing similar, pegs, a ball/foil or something similar to make a ball.
There are examples of ones that children in school made on the Home Learning Showcase.
Task Eight - Making Easter nests
Here you will find a recipe for making Easter nests.
Task Nine - Write me a letter
Write me a letter to tell me how your Easter holidays are going, how your home learning has been going, what you are enjoying and what you are finding difficult. You can email them to me - I would love to read them.
Task Ten - Make you own game
Make up your own game at home. One that keeps you active like the one below would be great.
For the game below you need some paper and space to move.
Draw hands and feet on different pieces of paper. As you move up the ladder you need to put that body part on the right piece of paper (a bit like twister).
There are lots of things to keep you busy here so pick and choose the ones you want to do. You might also find your own activities and ideas so please let me know what you get up to and stay in touch through email.
Have a lovely Easter holiday and remember to come back in two weeks when I will be posting more home learning for you.
Week 2 - Week Commencing 30.03.20
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend with your loved ones. As with last week, I will be posting activities and ideas for you to do at home. Please remember to do what you can and make sure you plan in lots of rests and breaks.
Today I will post work as normal and then it is the start of the Easter holidays! I will not be posting work during this time, but later on today I will post some work/activities/ideas of things that you could do over the next two weeks.
I am still not going to put the answers for the escape room on yet as I am giving people more time but please do email me your answers so far and I will let you know how you are doing - nobody has escaped yet!
Have a good day.
Maths - Big Maths
Literacy - Reading
Today there is a text to read and some questions to answer. The texts and questions get harder as you move through them so decide which one you would like to try and challenge yourselves. The answers are at the back of each set of questions so please don't look at the until after you have had a go, then you can go through the answers and see if you could make any improvements to get more marks.
Literacy - SPaG
There are some spelling, punctuation and grammar questions for you to answer. I will post the answers later today.
Hope you're well. Today is Escape Day! :-)
Work out the answers to the clues to escape the room.
The clues for the escape room are below. There is a recording sheet but you can also write the answers in your maths exercise book or on a piece of paper. Don't worry if you need to carry this over to tomorrow or you do it in the Easter holidays as it is a bit of a longer task. Good luck and let me know if you escape the room!
Note: I am not putting the answers on yet, as this can take a while and is a longer problem. Please do email me your answers so far and I will be happy to tell you which digits are correct! :-)
Well done to Phoebe who is the first person to escape the forest! :-)

Today you will be writing a character of the old man from the picture we looked at yesterday. Have a read of the example on this sheet and then have a go at your own. Remember to use effective descriptive vocabulary - show me! I should be able to picture the old man in my head from your descriptions.
Quick Reading Activity
This activity is called a 60 second read. There is a short text to read and then some questions to answer afterwards. The answers are on the second page, so answer of all the questions before you look at them. :-)
