Hello and welcome to Year 5's Class pages!


In order to try and keep some normality and structure at these uncertain times, please find below a suggested daily timetable that could be used by you and your family to help keep the motivation and learning going!


Interactive learning can now be accessed at home!  All children have their own personalised login and password for Purple Mash and Spelling Shed (MyMaths coming soon), where tasks have been assigned.  Please click on the 'Online Learning' link found on your class page.  If you encounter any problems, please contact the school office and ask to speak to Mr Wood, Miss Jowle or Mrs Vourlou and we will do our best to solve any issues.

Once children have logged into Purple Mash they will notice an alert on the top left of the screen, this will take them into the '2Do's' (tasks) that have been set. 

After children have logged into Spelling Shed, their spelling tasks will be shown once they enter into the tasks or 'assignments' area of the website. 

Art tasks and this term's Homework can also be found below.


You will also find a link to Oxford Owl which has the Class Name and Password shown - children are able to listen to a range of texts being read. 

Children can also log into Charanga (Music).


In addition, it is expected that all children read everyday and continue to practise their multiplication tables daily.


Along with the online learning sites that we use, we will also aim to set other Reading, Writing and Maths tasks weekly.


Here are some Reading and Writing activities for Year 5 children to complete in their exercise book.


1. Reading: Read your book from school and/or books from home and record this reading in your reading records. 


2. Writing: Keep a diary of your time at home and the different activities you do. Include some of your thoughts and feelings about your time at home in your diary entry.

3. Writing: Write a short story to match one of the illustrations from 'The Mysteries of Harris Burdick'


4. Writing: Write a prediction about what you think happened to Harris Burdick after he did not return to the publishers with the stories to match the illustrations.
