Year 5 Home Learning

Welcome to the Year 5 Home Learning Page!

It’s such a shame we can’t see you right now because we had to close the school for a while. We would really like to stay in touch with you and want you to keep working hard. Each week, on this page, you will find new learning activities for you to complete at home. Try and do as many as you can-we know you can do it! Also, don’t forget to look on the ‘Homework Websites’ page for lots more fun, learning websites.

Keep working hard, we are proud of you!

Home Learning w/c 6th April 2020

Hello year 5,

Below is a message from teachers, who are missing you very much, news about our Easter 'competition', links to some fun ideas and some homework if you want to keep your learning going over the Easter period.


Easter 'Competition'

Although we're not in school, we'd still like our Easter 'competitions' to go ahead. However, this year they will just be for fun. 

You can create an Easter bonnet, Easter scene or decorate an egg using whatever you have available at home - remember, don't go shopping; stay safe!

You can send us photos of your Easter creations to

As all photographs will be uploaded to the website, only include yourself in the picture if your parents are happy for you to be shown.  Make sure your name and class are included in the email; your name will not be put on the website. 

Have fun!


Hello 5K,

I hope you are all doing well and are keeping safe! I miss seeing your wonderful smiley faces every morning, hearing your funny stories and seeing some of the fantastic artwork that you do at home.

Keep working hard on the work set weekly. Make sure you are all reading your books, practising your spellings and doing some of the challenges on the website. Also, try and make sure you do some form of exercise each day. I have been doing PE with Joe Wicks on YouTube every morning and its been really good fun!

Just a quick reminder, if you gave me your parents email address for Get Epic Reading, make sure you speak to your parents to check their junk folder in their email accounts just in case the Epic link was accidentally sent there. Its lovely to see some of you have been on and are reading lots of books. 

Take care and continue being superstars!  

Miss Kaphuka 🙂 


Hello 5W,
It has been very strange not seeing all of your smiley faces for a few weeks so I just wanted to say a great big hello and give each one of you a virtual big tens 🙌 for doing your home learning challenges and being a great support to your families. Keep checking the website for more things to do and have a good Easter holiday. Have fun, stay safe and remember to be kind.
Ms Wardle


Hello 5B,

How I am missing you all!  It's great to be able to keep in touch through the website and to say hello to you all.  I hope you have been able to keep yourselves busy.  I have taken the opportunity to tidy up my garden and have enjoyed doing some exercise following along with online routines.  It's also been good to have time to read and I look forward to hearing which fabulous books you have read when we get back to school.  Did you see the photos I posted of our caterpillars and butterflies?  They might be visiting your garden or back yard by now, so keep an eye out for them.  Until I message you again, look after yourselves and your families and stay safe.  You could also take a look at some of the links and activities that will be posted on here.
