Year 5

 

Welcome to Year 5!

Teachers - Miss Kent


If you are looking to catch up or further your studies over the summer, please find below some useful links:

 

Purple Mash Summer Learning

We know the children have loved using Purple Mash during lockdown. Therefore we will be continuing to use Purple Mash over the summer holidays. Follow the link above and select your child's age group to find a range of relevant and fun activities for them to complete.

Oak National Academy Home Learning

Please find your child's year group and feel free to complete the Maths and English tasks. Click on the lesson, complete the quizzes and tasks by following the instructions at the bottom of each page. There are also foundation subjects which you can choose to complete if you would like to further your understanding in these areas.

If you are unsure of which units to cover, please look at the previous home learning units set (these can be found below - keep scrolling down). This will ensure that your child has covered all of the curriculum for their year group before September.

Times tables

It is imperative that your child knows their times tables before starting their new year group.

Reading

Reading is a key skill and we would encourage children to read books, magazines, blogs and other relevant material over the summer holidays to widen their vocabulary and improve their fluency. We would love it if parents could use the prompt sheet (see link below) to ask their child about what they have been reading.
