Year 5 Home Learning Offer

Hello to all parents and carers of Barn Owl and Heron classes. We have talked about how important it is to do  school learning every day of the closure period, and Miss Briggs and myself will be updating this website on a Monday and a Thursday with new exciting activities. We have made time tables, which the children can re-draft to suit themselves; as the weeks go on they will see how much they are able to complete. You will find this week's activities in the pack that you took home - and if you were off, then you can download them here. #(Please see  Herons for the attached documents if you do not have the home learning pack!)



You can explain how we made these wonderful wardrobes to your family!


Purple mash

We have put a whole range of super activities onto Purple Mash. The children each have a letter with their logins. Please see the screen grab below as we know problems logging in are resolved when you put "whitehawk" into the search bar. We have practiced this in class, but here is a reminder. See if you can come back to school knowing all of your times tables inside out! Use your Multiplication Monster to help you.   Miss Briggs and I will be looking at your work over the coming weeks.  Try a new activity every day!




From both Miss Briggs and Ms Glaser, keep safe and have  great fun as you continue learning!



We have uploaded challenges for every body. The way that the codings work in terms of dificulty is that the most accessible is D and the highest challenge is GD with E being in the middle.

You can go over fractions, roman numerals and practice your dividing by 10 and some number bond work. For those wishing additional challenges, visit nrich.maths.org

Try and do one activity per day.



The first book to pick up is a copy of, The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe! As the libraries are shut, have a look on line and there are copies that you can either listen to or  download. A kindle is also a possibility, if you have one at home.

Remember to read every day! You could try and control the game  as we do in class or play fast finger with your family! 



The English is also on the Year 5 Home Learning pack.  One thing to remember is the meaning of the word parenthesis:

It is when we put words in brackets to add information (like this).

Or when we embed information, wrote Ms Glaser, so that the sentence still makes sense without the words in the embedded clause.

And we also do it with a relative clause, which is one of these, she continued!

Try and do one activity a day.




We have attached a separate writing activity booklet, which you can use to write a story or non-fiction report every day. I know many of you will love this bear task!
