Good Afternoon Year 5!


Good Afternoon Year 5,


Monday is over, hope your learning went well and you enjoyed your activities. Remember anytime you need support, please ask adults or elder siblings to support you, there are also many resources that can be found on the internet to assist you.


As you know the answers for all your tasks where already attached at the bottom of the sheets or on the relevant links. For reading, I have uploaded the answers so look back at your work and self-mark and upload your pictures onto See saw for your teachers to view.


Also, remember to carry out your homework by logging on to:  My Maths, TT Rockstars and Bug Club. Well done to all the students who have logged in today! Your teachers are monitoring this closely every day. Ensure you are reading daily for at least 30 minutes and filling in your Reading Records (remember our year 5 expectations for reading records - quality comments).


It also important to have regular breaks use them moderately. Please make sure you sleep at a sensible time so you are fresh for the next day. Rest well and we will see you here tomorrow morning. If you are unsure of anything, please don't hesitate to contact us.  


This week, I will set you some fun quiz questions to have a go at – try to do them as a family (no google searches - NO cheating!). Answers will be posted the following day – good luck.

Joe Wicks is back for another week to motivate us for our love for PE. Please subscribe to his YouTube channel below to take part in his live PE lessons from 9-9.30am. Remember it is important to stay fit and active even though you are indoors.


This term, as part of your reading learning, you are required to use Bug Club everyday for 30 minutes and then spend the other 30 minutes of your reading session to complete another reading activity we will provide.


When using Bug Club, it is important you are answering the questions carefully, by referring to the text to find the correct evidence to support your answers. Your teachers will be monitoring your answers carefully, so ensure you are putting in the same effort that you would at school.


When answering reading comprehension and vocabulary questions, remember to be using taught techniques from school and annotate the questions and text, remembering to also refer to the text in your answers to support your points. A good tip is to read the questions first before you read the text, so you have a rough idea on where the clues for the questions and answer may be. 


It is important you are reading everyday to help you develop your reading skills as well as learn new vocabulary, which will make your spoken language and writing even better! These skills will help you later on in life and out of school, not just for your learning in school so please ensure you are reading regularly.

L.O: To practise descriptive writing skills to create effective settings for an opening.


This week, you will be writing the opening and build up of a story. It will be about entering an ancient Egyptian tomb and what you discover inside. Today, you will focus on what an effective setting description will look like for your own writing. Go through the PowerPoint uploaded below to familiarise yourself with how to write your setting. Your task is to describe what the inside of a tomb would look like as a setting description. Please edit carefully to check it makes sense.



Please use the link above to access the daily Maths lessons on BBC Bitesize. When you click on the link, you will see various subjects, click Maths and follow the instructions on the screen. Home learning focus will be on there daily. Each lesson will include a variety of activities, worksheets and videos. Complete all your learning in your book and Seesaw the work you have been doing daily, after self-marking the activities (answers will be found under the relevant activities). 


Once you have finished your learning on BBC Bitesize, it is crucial you spend at least 20minutes on MyMaths or Times Table Rockstars (swapping between them each day), to ensure you are reviewing your learning and revising your maths skills making them stronger. Please let your teachers know on Seesaw if you are struggling to log on.

Good Morning Year 5!


Good morning Year 5,


It’s Monday and I know what that means… it means after a restful weekend, you’re motivated and ready to work hard for the week ahead! Let’s do this! Right, a tip to keep a positive attitude is to: start every morning strong. It’s easier to maintain a positive attitude all day if you implement it right when you open your eyes. Think about some ways to make your morning the best part of your day - especially if you’re not a morning person! Consider waking up a half hour or an hour earlier than usual. This means getting into bed earlier, too! Give yourself time to do the things you love but may not always have time for; go for a run, relish in a hot shower, etc and actually eat a nutritious breakfast. When your morning is more productive and less rushed, you’ll be sure to head to school (or currently study from home for some of you) in higher spirits. That morning glow will spread throughout your day, and then the cycle can repeat. Now back to work... 


You will find all the work for today under its sections, please complete them to the best of your ability. If you require help, please ask adults or elder siblings for support, there are also many different resources online that can help you. You may also ask teachers for help via Seesaw. 


Please note: some answers to the tasks will be available at 3pm. Make sure you come to check the answers and self-mark your answers.


Happy learning!
