Year 5 Home Learning
As of Tuesday 5th January 2021, we will be teaching children remotely. Those children still attending school will receive the same curriculum as those learning from home.
In terms of Remote Learning, we will be using Purple Mash and Seesaw to send children work or for work to be sent to us. It is important that you child is able to access Purple Mash. Please remember all the lessons we did on online safety in September to make sure you are staying safe when using the internet. All login details can be found in your child’s reading diary.
You can access our Purple Mash school login page here: Purple Mash by 2Simple
We will be setting a piece of English, maths and topic piece each day. English and topic will be set on Purple Mash. Maths will be set using White Rose and ask that work is sent through Seesaw. All of the links and documents will be linked below. Please make sure that you check this page every week to see what has been set. We will be marking and responding to work sent to us, however this will only happen during school hours. Work sent later than 3:30pm will be checked and marked the following day.
If your child is struggling to login or having any difficulties, please email the class emails telling us the issue and what device you are trying to use it on. If we do have to use Purple Mash for home learning, please remember all the lessons we did on online safety in September to make sure you are safe when using the internet.
Class emails for Year 5 are:
English will be uploaded onto Purple Mash every day. There will be a chapter from a book to read and questions that accompany the book in a separate 2Do. There will also be a writing task that links to something that happened in the chapter. These tasks will alternate each day!
Oxford Owl are offering free e-books for children to read. You will need to register to the website but they have some amazing books. We still want children to continue with the reading challenge each week! The website is Free eBook library | Oxford Owl

Friday 22nd January worksheet:
A topic will be set on Purple Mash that coincides with what we would have been studying in class. Our topic this term is ‘Travelling through Time’ focussing on the Ancient Greeks. Each afternoon there will be a different subject including science, music, RE, RSHE, art and creative curriculum. Also it is important that we still keep exercising. Jo Wicks is carrying on with his PE lessons on YouTube plus if the weather is suitable, you could go on a bike ride or a walk.
If you would like to improve your music skills while at home and you have an iPad or other apple device, have you downloaded the Garageband app? On this app you can use a range of instruments to compose your very own tracks. I wonder how creative you can be? Once you have created a track, why not download them and send them to your class email address.
Year 5 – General Information
Welcome to Year 5!
There are two classes in Year 5:
The Georgians – Mrs Wilson & Mrs Martin
The Stuarts – Mr Moss
We are supported by Mrs Calver and Mrs Adams.
This week as writers, we will be looking at Brightstorm by Vashti Hardy.
Spelling tests take place every Tuesday. New spellings are handed out on the same day.
Winter is upon us. Please make sure you send your child to school with a coat for playtime and lunchtime.
As the weather is getting colder please make sure the children bring an appropriate PE kit into school. Some of the PE sessions will take place outside so tracksuit bottoms and a PE jumper would be a good addition to the children’s PE bag.
If your child takes part in any lunchtime clubs please make sure they have a kit to change into.
Homework is given out on a Friday and is to be handed in by the following Wednesday.
Children receive Maths and English homework.
Maths homework is currently being set on My Maths. Please remember to keep your login in a safe place so you do not lose it!
Please remember to take part in our weekly reading challenge. Reading challenges are collected by the class teacher every Monday morning. It is really easy to complete! All you need to do is read for five minutes, five times a week and record in on your reading challenge.
Remember Mrs Ashford draws a reading challenge slip every week and the winner wins a book! Let’s see if we can get 100% to complete the reading challenge in 5S and 5G.
Week beginning 04/1/2021
Mr Moss’ set are learning long division.
Mrs Wilson’s set are learning about factors, multiples and prime numbers.
Please remember to continue to practice times tables with your child at home. They will bring their ‘Rockstar Maths’ sheets home with them for practice.
Below are some links that you might find useful to use at home:
This term, our topic will be ‘Travelling through Time.’
For the first half of the term, we will be learning about the Ancient Greeks. We will begin our learning by looking at what life is like in modern Greece now and comparing it to how people lived in Ancient Greece.
