Year 5




Parents of year 5 children:

We appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy, we have tried to prepare work that the children are able to complete both independently or with a small amount of adult supervision as we appreciate that a lot of you will need to be working at home.

Please use the suggested daily timetable for a typical home-school day which can be found on the front page of our school closures link on the school website as this will give your child a balance of activities.

Most of the work that you have in your child’s pack is self-explanatory.

The workout photocopied exercises that need to be completed daily should be able to be completed independently by your child, they may write on the sheets for these.

Children can complete the daily writing exercise in their new home-school books, please remind them to write and underline the date each day and use the same beautiful handwriting that they do in school in all of their work!

The topic study may also be completed on the sheet although if children prefer they may like to record their work in their home-school book.

The children have recently written a non-chronological report on elephants so should have all of the skills needed to write one on Space. This checklist will help to remind them what they need to include:

Non-chronological report checklist

Must Have…

Could Have…

A Heading (title)

Pictures or diagrams



Facts not opinions

Questions to the reader

Technical words to do with the subject


Verbs in the past tense


Text organised into paragraphs


Varied sentence beginnings


Appropriate punctuation



In addition to this your child will still be able to access Mathletics until the end of March, there are lots of activities available to them on here.

The other maths resource available is the maths dashboard which is accessed via parent resources, year 5/6 revision on our school website. The password for this is hexagon6.

If your child has their homework books at home with them they will be able to complete an activity each week (or more should they wish) from their project.


Please don’t hesitate to contact us via the class email from 9am until 12 noon if you need any support:


Mrs Joshi and Mrs Dyson
