Good morning Year 5.


We hope that you had a relaxing half term. And that you are ready for the last 8 weeks of your Year 5 journey!


It is very important that you keep up with your home learning this half term as this will prepare you for year 6.


We are still waiting for some of you to blog! You have to show us your home learning if you are not in school. We will also check your online work and contact parents if you are not working at home.


The home learning will mirror the work that we are doing in school, so please do not hesitate to email your teacher if you are unsure of something or need more work or books.



There is no need to go to the White Rose website. Please find the links for each day.

Monday: Area of rectangles

Tuesday: Equivalent fractions

Wednesday: Convert between improper fractions and mixed numbers

Thursday: Compare and order fractions

Friday: Add and subtract fractions.


Please mark your work with an adult or older sibling. Go through your corrections.


We have uploaded the Weeks 5 - 8 booklet. This week we are completing WEEK 6. You will find Chapter one – My Cousin is a time Traveller. Please read and complete the writing prompts as well as the usual spelling and grammar.


There is also a spelling task to look at and learn on Spellzone as well.




This week we have included a reading/writing task from Pobble 365 called -The Watchers. Please see the link below.


Continue with your Active Learn Bug club.
