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

 

  • Learn the Year 5 Common Exception Words.

  • Download and print the Year 5 Home Learning Pack.

 

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?

1. Read at least 20 mins at least 3 times a week and log this in your contact books.  Regular reading builds on your vocabulary skills.

2. When you have finished reading, please write a book review as this will help with your comprehension skills.

3. Practise timetables as often as you can.  Timetables are the basic Mathematical skill needed to support your learning.

4. Practise your spellings.  Spellings are a key part of your writing.  Poor spelling can make your work less cohesive.

Term 4

 

English

In English this term we will be working with three amazing books.  The first is 'Viking Myths' retold by Thor Ewing.  This will be used to get the children to write an imaginative story using powerful vocabulary, sgreat sentence structure and adventure to entice the reader to want more.  We will then move on to 'Elmer on Stilts' by David McKee, which is linked to our fundraising for Pilgrims Hospice and designing the baby Elmer for Maidstone.  Our last book will be 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' by William Shakespeare.

 

      

 

Please continue to support your son/daughters reading by encouraging them to write a book review for every book they complete.

In Maths this term, the children will be adding to their already acquired knowledge from Year 4.  They will be converting units of measure (kg - g, km - m, l - ml plus many more).  We will also be learning about volume and geometry by becoming confident at identifying properties of shape.

 

    

 

We expect the children to challenge themselves in lessons by attempting to complete the reasoning and problem solving questions.  This will enable the children to develop their understanding of Mathematical concepts being covered in class.

Please also encourage your son/daughter to go on Times Table Rockstars at least twice a week.

 

Science

Our main focus this term will be learning about Living things and their habitats.  The children will be learning about the reproduction of plants, mammals, insects and amphibians.  This topic is closely linked to art this term as the children will become botanists, drawing and documenting different life cycles in detail.

In our Outdoor PE session with will be covering Outdoor and Adventurous Activities.  This  will encourage good communication techniques along with helping to teach the art of becoming a good team player.  They will have to overcome different obstacles in order to complete certain tasks.

 

Could we please remind parents/carers that earrings are not to be worn during PE and therefore they should either not be worn to school on the days we have PE or the children should bring a small container to place them in.

If a child does not have their full PE kit or a note to explain the reason why they cannot take part from a parent/carer, they will be given 15 minutes detention the following lunchtime.  This is to prepare them for secondary school.

Term 2 Homework

Term 1 (2019/2020)

We love reading!

We have been having great fun making our recycled fashion.

Year 5 Homework

Children are expected to read for 20 minutes most days; regularly practise their times tables to develop their Maths skills and complete the homework menu for the Term (see attached for Term 1).  There is an expectation that children do a minimum of 3 activities, however if they would like to complete more then they are more than welcome.  The tasks are designed to allow the children to continue to enjoy the classroom learning at home.  We hope this will lead to the children finding pleasure in homework rather than it being a battle for them to complete it.

Times tables

Don't forget to access your Times tables Rockstar account (your account details are in your contact books).  Will we be seeing your name at the top of the Year 5 leader board?

 

Welcome to Year 5.  You are now beginning your journey in upper key stage 2 and it is time to shine!

 

Year 5 is all about working hard and having fun.  We will be covering topics such as Sustainability, Vikings, Mayans and Extreme Weather, whilst learning through writing, drama, discussions, investigations and much more.

We have two trips to look forward to, Kent Life and Maidstone Museum, and some dressing up throughout the year.

 

In Term 1 we will begin by reading The Song of the Dophin Boy by Elzabeth Laird and linking this to our topic on Sustainability.  What is renewable energy and how can we make a difference?  This will also link to Science where we will be looking at forces.

In Maths we will be starting the term by building on our knowledge of place value and Roman numerals before moving on to addition and subtraction.  Please ensure you continue to practise your timetables, as knowing all of them will help secure your understanding in all areas of Mathematics.  It is also advised that you read regularly in order to build on your vocabulary.

 

Let our journey begin ....
