Year 5 Summer Home Learning

Welcome to the Year 5 Home Learning Section of our website. This is work designed for Gamma, Phi and Zeta class.
Each week, new learning for the week will be updated ready for Monday morning.
Work is designed so that each day children will have one lesson for Maths, one lesson for English and one other curriculum lesson. There will be different curriculum lessons each week.
All of the work is designed so that it can be displayed on a phone or a tablet as well as a computer. Our staff have made the work here so that it does no need to be printed off to complete it – you can look at the work on screen, and complete the answers and work on paper.
Some work can be accessed by all children to have a go. Some work is split into different tasks, depending on how confident children feel – these are based on our red, yellow and green ReflectEd colours. Red means that you want more support. Yellow means that you feel ready to have a go. Green means that you are ready for more challenge. You will only need to complete one of these tasks.
Our Year 5 team would love to see some examples of your good work, and are able to offer support if there is anything you are unsure of. You can contact them at

Week 11 & 12

You have now completed 10 weeks of learning at home! We have loved seeing all of the work that has been emailed to us and hearing about how your child has been getting on. For the last two weeks of the term we have created some exciting projects which will allow your child to apply their knowledge and skills in a creative way. There are seven projects to choose from including creating a new theme park, planning a holiday destination and designing a home of the future. Children working in school will also be completing these projects. You can decide how to complete the projects and how many you want to undertake. You could complete one as a family over the two weeks, or your child may want to try a couple of different tasks. The projects will remain on the website for the duration of the 6 week holiday, so your child can continue them over a longer period of time if they want to.
