Y5 Home Learning Closure

We are working hard to put together some key things you can be doing with your child whilst school is closed.  Your child should have brought home a workbook from school and should use this workbook to complete the written tasks which will be posted on the school website.  We will aim to add work for your child to complete on a daily basis (but if we have a much reduced staff this may not always be possible), so you should check the website on a regular basis. 



As a daily expectation, we are encouraging children to spend at least 15 minutes on each of the following:


  • Enjoy reading a book together
  • Learn spellings
  • IDL (Y2-6)
  • TTRockstars/Numbots
  • Practise handwriting
  • Daily Exercise

You can find more information by reading this letter.


In addition to the above AND the daily tasks posted, your child can also research units or topics of interest to them and linked to the wider curriculum.  Here is a list of current units of learning linked to each year group:

  • Year 5 – Mountains and Forces


The schedules TT Rock Stars sessions have been updated to support home learning in Year 3, 4 and 5. The new scheduled TT Rock Stars sessions have been planned for Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. The sessions will start at 7.00am and finish at 9.00pm. The children should complete all the sessions as part of their daily TT Rock Stars practice.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, children should practice their tables on the other modes on TT Rock Stars. Garage mode moves through levels, Arena and Festival are multiplayer and Sound check is limited to 6 seconds to answer and is out of 25. All of these activities will help improve the speed and recall of the multiplication tables which will, in turn, help with their other maths activities.
