Dear parents and children,


We hope you have been enjoying the wonderful weather.  We are now uploading some more tasks and activities for after the half-term, which you might want to complete at home. There are a range of different activities for you to choose from, including; English, Maths, Science and other subjects such as History, Geography, DT and Computing.


Each day, please try to:

- complete a section of Maths

- complete an English task

- practise spellings daily (your look, say, cover, write, check sheets are here on the website)

- practise times tables daily e.g. play TT Rockstar 

- read for 15 minutes

- watch BBC Newsround 


(Some of the tasks have three different levels of questions: * easier, ** harder, *** hardest.)


As a Year 5 team, we would love to see what you are getting up to at home. Use the Year 5 Padlet to show us what you have been doing and you can add comments.  Don't forget to put your name on your post.  You can also email any of us with pictures or videos of what you have been doing.


Thank you,


The Year 5 Teaching Team.


There is also a link for the new BBC Bitesize Daily Lessons which you might be interested in trying.


Next week you will have the opportunity to ask scientists any questions you like about Physics (mechanics, heat, light and other radiation, sound, electricity, magnetism, and the structure of atoms).These scientists will be online for 40 minutes and will respond to as many questions as possible during this time.

In order to access this online chat, you will need to register (this will take about 10 minutes) and be online ready at least 5 minutes before your chat is due to start. 


Class 7: Thursday 7th May 11:20

Class 8: Wednesday 6th May 2:00

Class 9: Wednesday 6th May 2:50


Alternatively, if you can't access the live chat, you can log in any time to read the Scientist's profiles and send questions in ASK.


The log in details are shown on the Y5 Padlet.
