Home Learning


Friday 1st December


Happy December everyone!

Thank you for bringing in your fabulous Christmas decorations this week! They really are going to make our Year 5 area look extremely festive! There are lots of other exciting Christmassy things going on around the school as well and please don't forget to wear your Christmas jumper next Friday (8th).

Task 1: French
In French this week we spent time learning the French words for our different school subjects. To help you practise these words, we would like you to create a wordsearch containing each of the words on the following list. Please upload your work here to be given feedback, but then bring it to school for us to play. 
les sciences
la lecture
les maths
le dessin
la religion
la musique
la geographie
le francais

Task 2: Spelling
This week, we will continue to share the year 5 spelling word list.  
Whilst it is important that the children can spell these words, it is just as important that
they know what they mean and use them when writing.  Firstly, decide which list of words you are going to work on (see attached document).
Then :   

Must: know how to spell each word.
Could: Write a sentence explaining the meaning of each word.
Challenge: Can you use all the words in one paragraph?


Autumn Term Learning



Parents/carers: If you have any questions, queries or comments about Year 5, please email the school office on:

They will forward this information to the correct member of staff who will then be able to get back to you regarding your query.

Here is the presentation that we discussed in the Year 5 introductory parents meeting :)

This year, we will be encouraging the children to become independent learners.

We will be placing home learning here on the Year 5 page of the school website. Any resources necessary to complete the tasks will be printed out and placed in each child's green home learning book. Each week there will be a Maths task and a writing or topic task (alongside times tables and reading). Home learning will be uploaded here on Fridays and is due to be handed in at school on the following Wednesday.

Home learning books should be brought back in to school every Wednesday so that we can see your wonderful work! smiley


Useful websites:

Please find linked below the slides from our Year 6 Residential meeting (2nd November). If you have any questions or concerns, please get in touch with us. 

Thanks, Miss K and Mr Short
