Home Learning for Year Five children:


Please adapt the work to suit your child, giving support where ever it is needed.

Keep learning fun and practical, have lots of breaks and rewards for completing any set tasks.


If you have a garden then use it as much as possible! Work outside and make the most of the sunshine!


Remember to read for 10 minutes a day and complete 10 minutes on Timestable Rockstars!


Most importantly – please don’t stress…



The children should be encouraged to work on their spellings, punctuation and grammar skills.




You are able to access one quiz a day for free.

Home Learning Opportunities:


Here are some activities that your child/ren can work on at home.


  • Learn the Year 5 Common Exception Words.


What else can parents do when there’s no school? Online learning from home offers children opportunities to develop and learn new skills at the touch of a button. There are heaps of awesome online learning platforms that can be accessed at home, including Pobble 365.


However, screen time for the entire length of the school day can have a negative effect on children's wellbeing. So here are some non-screen activities you could do at home…


Here are 18 fun and meaningful ideas to choose from:

  1. How many different words can you make from the letters in this sentence, below? Grab a pencil and paper and write a list!
    ‘Learning from home is fun’
  2. Thank a community hero. Think of someone that helps you in some way and write a short letter to thank them.
  3. Get building!
  4. Can you create your own secret code? You could use letters, numbers, pictures or something else! Can you get someone else to try and crack it?
  5. Start a nature diary. Look out of the window each day and keep note
    of what you see. Birds, flowers, changes in the weather, what else?
  6. Hold a photo session. Use a camera or a mobile phone to take some snaps. What will you photograph? Your pets or toys perhaps?
  7. Design and make a homemade board game and play it with your family.
  8. Do something kind for someone. Can you pay them a compliment, make them something or help them with a task?
  9. List making! Write a list of things that make you happy, things you’re grateful for or things you are good at.
  10. Design and make an obstacle course at home or in the garden. How fast can you complete it?
  11. Can you invent something new? Perhaps a gadget or something to help people? Draw a picture or write a description.
  12. Keep moving! Make up a dance routine to your favourite song.
  13. Write a play script. Can you act it out to other people?
  14. Write a song or rap about your favourite subject.
  15. Get sketching! Find a photograph or picture of a person, place or object and sketch it.
  16. Write a postcard to your teacher. Can you tell them what you like most about their class?
  17. Draw a view. Look out of your window and draw what you see.
  18. Get reading! What would you most like to learn about? Can you find out more about it in books? Perhaps you can find a new hobby?
