Welcome to Year 5
Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
St Teresa of Calcutta - Class Saint
Hello everyone! Parents, carers, children and all family. It is so strange not seeing you all everyday in this unusual time, we miss you all so much!
We hope that you are all staying safe in this unusual time and, most importantly, taking care of yourselves.
We understand how hard it can be being out of routine, but this page is our way of trying to bring some of our school routine to you, as much as we can. On this page you will find all, up to date, home learning as well as prayer, Mass and song.
Please remember that the most important thing at this time is to make sure you all looking after yourselves and making sure you are keeping happy and healthy.
Religious education and Prayer Life
Father Kelly, from St Francis of Assisi Church, is praying for you all everyday, along with our very own Father Joseph. Father Kelly would love to share your prayers with the parish. If you would like to write a prayer and send it in, we can forward this on to Father Kelly and he will share some of your prayers during Mass, which you can then watch on the link below.
I know that some of you will be really missing attending Mass during this time. Please follow the link below for a live streaming of Mass at St Francis of Assisi Church.
Mass times are included below and take place 7 days a week.
9.00 am Eucharistic Adoration (in silence)
9.30 am Daily Mass (including Sunday)
8.00 pm Rosary with Eucharistic Adoration, concluding with Night Prayer at 8.45 pm
Sing a song in prayer with your family!
Example of a daily timetable you might like to use!
Below is an example of a daily timetable you might like to use at home to help keep you motivated! Maybe you could put it up on the wall so you know what's coming next?
What will the boys and girls learn in Year 5 in English?
What book is Miss Ward reading at the moment?
I am really enjoying this book so far. I love that it feels as though Tom Fletcher, the author, is talking to you directly throughout the book, with little messages he leaves.
I couldn't imagine a world where I woke up and all of the adults had disappeared! I can't wait to keep reading and find out what happened to them all!
Oh dear, I've just realised that if this were to happen I would disappear as well!! I'm glad it's only fiction.

Home Learning Projects
Simmering skills - What basic skills activities should I be doing every day?
- Reading: I know lots of you love to read to yourselves, but you should spend SOME of your reading time reading to somebody else. Maybe it could be a younger sibling or even a pet!
- Spelling: Using your spelling overview from above, choose a spelling focus and see how many words you can find that use that spelling focus! Maybe you could make it into a game or a poster?
- Times tables: Keep practising on TT Rockstars, but you can also practise your multiplication and division facts on paper as well. Maybe think of a way you could teach this to somebody else to help them understand.
