Welcome to Year 5

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

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.

Work for if you have to self-isolate

We understand that in some situations you and your families have no choice but to isolate during this unusual time. In this situation, it is important that you are still, if you are not poorly, accessing your learning. 

Please find below Maths, English, Reading, Spelling and Handwriting activities.

The links to Oak national academy will provide English and Maths lessons. 

The spelling sheets uploaded cover the spelling patterns we are focussing on in the current week. 

Storyline online is a fantastic resource for listening to stories that can be discussed about afterwards. Oxford Owl is also a free resource where you can access books to read online.


This Week's spelling Focus

Words ending in -ent, -ency and -ence.

I understand that sometimes it can be hard to learn your spellings and it can sometimes not be the most exciting of tasks.

Please find below some fun activities you could use to help you to learn your spellings!

Please find below the spellings we have had in the previous weeks in the Autumn term

How does it apply to your spellings this week?

Mufaro's Beautiful daughters

In English we are currently studying the story Mufaro's beautiful daughters. The children have been putting actions to our story map and trying really hard to learn it off by heart. 

I have put the story and the story map underneath so the children can practise these actions at home.

What will the boys and girls learn in Year 5 in English?

What will the boys and girls learn in Year 5 in Maths?

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.
