Welcome to ‘Year 5 Home Learning’; we hope you find this useful.
During this time of school closure, we will strive to ensure that appropriate work is set for you. Together, we have discussed our planning at length and have tried to create lessons, which link as close as possible to where our learning journey was heading. In order not to overwhelm anyone and to ensure it is clear to locate, we will update the sessions daily.
We recognise that this is unfamiliar to our children and parent/carers and just ask that we all give this a go. Our children have been working extremely hard this academic year preparing for Year 6 and we want this to continue. Being independent and showing dedication and commitment are valuable life skills and we are sure our Fairfield Road children will all rise to this new challenge in a mature manner.
Year 5, we ask you to be mindful of others around you during this time, and work together. Please do not overly stress about anything; just try your best and enjoy spending time together. Do yourselves, your families and us proud.
Mrs. Foulds and Miss Chong.
Year 5 Home Learning Week Beginning Monday 18th May 2020
Welcome to the last week of Summer 1 - the last 5 weeks seem to have flown by and we are so proud of much you have achieved in your home learning. After this week, you will have two weeks off where there will be no work set so you can have a well deserved rest. Please find above your suggested timetable for this week in addition to your Maths, English and RE lessons for today. Go TEAM!
This week, it is a four day week as we have a special Bank Holiday on Friday. Not only is it May Day, it's also VE Day. School will be closed on Friday and you will not be expected to complete any home learning either. So, let's work really hard these next four days! You'll be rounding decimals in Maths, continuing Freedom for Bron and looking at Shahadah and the 99 names of Allah in RE. Resources for all of these can be found above, along with your suggested timetable.
Today you will be rounding to 1 decimal place in Maths, continuing Freedom for Bron in English which ties in perfectly with your afternoon Topic lessons on the Anglo-Saxons. Don't forget to fit some Spellings and Reading in if you can
You'll be looking at lots of different style questions when rounding decimals in Maths today, continuing your work on Freedom for Bron and recapping on Animals Including Humans in Science. Don't forget your Reading and Spelling!

You've got Maths, English and then an afternoon of crafting that you can display in and around your house ready for Friday. Remember, there is no school tomorrow so this is your last day of home learning for the week. Have a wonderful long weekend.

Welcome to your second week of home learning. The suggested timetable for Year 5 is very similar to last week, but we have incorporated PE with Joe Wicks as found it as a great way to start the day (and know many of you are doing it already!). All of the activities this week can be completed online or in the exercise books in your pack. We will continue to upload the slides for each lesson daily. Additionally, your PE, Music and French teachers have set you challenges on Dojo that you might like to incorporate into your own timetable. As with last week, do what you can, try your best and most of all look after yourselves and your family.
Today, your suggested home learning is Maths - where you will be looking at imperial units of mass, English - where you will be looking at figurative language and Topic - where you will learn all about one of the most famous legends of the Ancient Greeks.

Have a great day and enjoy your weekend - you've earned it!
Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome back everyone! We hope you all had a fantastic summer holiday and are refreshed and ready for lots of fun-filled activities and learning this half term!
Our topic this half term is 'What makes the Earth angry?' and we will be looking at different natural disasters that have happened in the world. We will even be making explosive volcanoes! In science we will be looking at ‘Space’ and making up our own mnemonic to help us to remember the order of the planets. In maths we be focusing on number and place value whilst in English we will be looking at a range of sentence types to enhance our writing.
Please can I remind you that your child's reading book and reading record needs to be in school every day. Reading is important and if you have the time we would appreciate it if you could listen to your child read at home at least three times a week.
Year 5 PE lessons will be taught on a Monday and Friday and we ask for your child to wear the correct PE kit (white T-shirt, blue shorts and black pumps) and could you please label it clearly. We will send PE kits home each half term so they can be washed and returned after the holidays for the next half term. We will be going swimming after February half term but we will remind you closer to the time.
Homework is given out on a Friday and due back in on the following Friday. This half term it will be grammar and maths based. The activities will only be 10 minutes long so shouldn’t be too onerous! Children will be tested on their spellings on Friday mornings. Spellings will be practised in school time but children are more than welcome to take copies home for extra practise!
We are always available at the end of the school day if you have any questions or you can contact us through Class Dojo.
