Year Five Activities

Hello everyone,

If you’re in need of a ‘pick-me-up’ or a break from your English and maths learning, have a look at this wonderful website:

It has a really catchy song for every day of the week, with easy to follow lyrics and a downloadable resource/activity to match the theme of the song.

New songs are being added all the time for the next few weeks. I will certainly be joining in at home. Have fun. Make a note of which songs you like the best for when we return to school and we can sing them together.

Take care,

Mrs Russell

We would love to hear from you so we know you’re children are safe and well and hear how they are getting on with their home learning. Please email either your child’s teacher, or

Hello everyone,

You’ll find all your home learning tasks here. <>  We’ll be constantly adding more new and exciting things, so check back each day.

For each week there will be:

  • Daily maths sessions
  • A weekly reading task
  • One new writing challenge
  • SPaG practice for the week
  • A creative task; and
  • A research task.

There are loads of other exciting things you can be doing from home. We’ve made a big list here.

Miss Mitchell will also be sharing the next chapters of George’s Secret Key to the Universe via Youtube here <> but there are lots of different free books and readings to explore here <>

You may finish these tasks quickly or they might take you a few days. Your interest might be sparked by something else and you decide to do something completely different like writing, music, cooking or tending to your bean. That’s absolutely fine. Keep safe and stay happy.

Remember, you can contact us via email – our addresses are in the front of your blue books. We’d love to hear – and see! – what you’re getting up to.

If you’re feeling worried about anything, try ChildLine’s Calm Zone. <>
