Year 5 Online Learning Opportunities


Click on the subject below to take you to the Online Learning:









To ensure the children are reaching their attainment, it is important that they are completing the following homework on a regular basis:


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.
