Welcome to Year 5


Mrs Whiteside & Mrs Ashton


Spring Term 2021

Welcome to home learning!

We are missing you in school and hope that you are all safe, well and happy. As from now, and during the coming weeks, you will be asked to continue to complete the work issued in the weekly plan with a focus on the English and Maths in the mornings. You will then be invited to a Zoom session at 2pm everyday in which I will be covering Science, History and R.E. For these sessions you will need to be in a quiet space with room to work. You will also need your home learning books, a pen, pencil and ruler and...don't forget your brain!

Children should all have their log in details for Mymaths, Active Learn, Read Theory and Purple Mash (as well as RM Maths and IDL if they usually do this in school). All online learning platforms offer great learning activities which the children have enjoyed in school. 

Reading books have been allocated on the Active Learn website. Children should log in and choose a book to read. Some books are quite long and may need to be read over a number of days. Comprehension questions should be answered by clicking on the green bug face that appears throughout the book. Comprehension answers will be checked and some feedback given.

 Our new Science topic is 'Forces' and our new History topic is a really exciting one focusing on Greek Mythology. We will be asking the question 'The Story of the Trojan Horse: historical fact, legend or classical myth?'

The next RE topic and homelearning pack are available to download below.

If you have any questions or concerns, or would like to share any work completed at home please email the class 5 email address:

Many thanks for your support. Stay safe and happy!

 Let’s work together to make this a fantastic year

for the children of Class 5.


Many thanks

Mrs Whiteside and Mrs Ashton.
