Year 5

Week beginning 20th July-Week 2 of summer holiday

Hello Year 5,

So am hoping that you have all enjoyed your first official week of the summer holiday. It's been good weather for getting out and about! Mrs Webster, Mrs Sisson, Mrs Cliffe and I have tried the new Farm Shop Cafe on Bartholomew's Road, near to school, and have seen some of you there, which was an added bonus!!

Have posted the new White Rose Maths for the week and also a reading comprehension for you to try. The answers are there also, to support you, if needed.

Have a lovely week,

Miss Hubbard and Mrs Webster

Week beginning 13th July: Week one of the summer holiday


Hello Year 5,

So it's the first week of the summer holiday......and many of you have been working hard since "lockdown"  so deserve a break! But it would be good to keep up those basic skills like regular reading and times tables practice so that Year 6 won't come as too much of a shock!! You will all have your grammar booklets and Rivers booklets by now, so when you get a moment, take a look and work through these at your own pace. For those of you who are enjoying White Rose Maths, you will find the next four lessons below, along with the video tutorials and answers.

Have a super week,

Miss Hubbard and Mrs Webster

Home Learning Week Beginning 6th July

What strange times!! We have reached the end of term and the end of an extraordinary year!! Who would have thought that back in March, the school year would have ended like it has? We feel really saddened that we only got to spend a few months of learning time together, but I hope that as a Year 6, you will feel able to pop in to see us and let us know how you are and what you have been doing. We're counting on it!!

So this week you will find the usual White Rose Maths Lessons-polygons, 3D shapes, reflection and translation of shapes.

You will also find two more countries to investigate.....what do you really know about England? And discover the mysteries of India.

I hope that you have all received your learning packs for the next few weeks. If not they will be delivered this week.

Have a super duper summer.

Miss Hubbard and Mrs Webster

England and India

Home Learning week beginning 29th June

Hello Year 5,

Well it is Sunday again already and time for me to add this week's Home learning. White Rose Maths takes you through using a protractor to measure the size of angles accurately. I will leave some protractors in the Year 5 tray at school for you to borrow if you need to. The new "Talk for Write" booklet is out- and is all about Elves and Sprites! I did not know that Sprites were the smaller cousins of Elves or that Cave Elves could be dangerous if approached because they can't see very well! As usual, you will be introduced to some new vocabulary to match up. Do you know what a tinge is or what a hermit is?

If you enjoyed last week's booklets on Japan and Brazil, you might like to look at this week's booklets on Iceland and Australia. If any of these "taster" booklets inspire you to find out more about a country, you might like to do a project on it, like we did with The Netherlands and Spain at the start of "lockdown". If you do, please email it to us as we are keen to know what you have been doing since we last saw you.

Have a super week,

Keep cheery and stay safe,

Miss Hubbard and Mrs Webster

Elves and Sprites Talk for Write

Home Learning for week beginning 22nd June

Hello again Year 5,

We hope that you have had another good week! What a mixed bag of weather!!… minute we are all so hot we don't know how to cool down and the next we are avoiding the heavy showers and jumping in puddles! (especially Maddie!!)

Did any of you take up the sports challenge? We had a good go in school and sent our scores off to be judged. This week there are more sporting challenges- The virtual schools championship!! Click on the link below and see what you can achieve!!

Some of you are doing so well keeping up with your learning and we were pleased to see that Lucy Moore has been logging all her reading minutes. Fabulous!  Has anyone else read any of the Poppy Pym books? 

At the start of Lockdown, we sent home some projects to do about Spain and The Netherlands and many of you have enjoyed finding out about these countries. If you enjoyed these, you may like some puzzle/research booklets that have been produced for you to find out more about other countries. Find the link for Brazil and Japan underneath the Maths and English for this week.

Stay safe and keep smiling,

Miss Hubbard and Mrs Webster






Home Learning for week beginning June 15th

Hello Year 5,

Don't these weeks seem to fly by - it only seems like yesterday that we were loading last week's Maths and English resources! We hope that you have had a good week despite the cooler, wetter weather- remember, the plants in the gardens and fields need the rain and it was slightly refreshing! 

It was lovely to talk to so many of you on the telephone and to hear about the activities you have been doing like: PE challenges, long bike rides and fishing! It was great looking through Maddie's purple Home Learning book that she sent into school, and I know many more of you have been having-a-go at the work we set before "lockdown" and the work we add each week! Well done, you!!

So this week, you might be continuing with the Wonderful Wizards reading/writing booklet. I know lots of you have made your Top Trumps Wizardry cards and it would be great if we all brought them back to school to have a game with them, at some point!!

In maths, we are looking at fractions as percentages! Remember "per cent" means out of a hundred, and fractions as percentages becomes much easier! This repeats some of the work from earlier in the "lockdown" so if you have already completed the unit, please contact school on Mon or Tues for alternative work.


Have a lovely week,

Miss Hubbard and Mrs Webster


Home Learning for Week beginning 8th June

Hello Year 5,

We do hope that you are all keeping well and making the most of your time away from school. How lovely to get emails from some of you keeping us informed of the activities and the work that you have been doing at home.  Now that some of the year groups are back in school, Mrs Webster and I are also in school, on our usual days, working with groups, so if we can help you in any way, please give school a call. 

This week's White Rose Maths work helps reinforce an understanding of decimals and fractions and the New Talk4Write booklet is fantastic and full of wizardry!!! Make your own Top Trump Wizard cards, write your own spells and learn what it might be like in Wizard School. Don't forget to send in your ideas.


For those of you who are feeling competitive, Melton Schools Games are running a "virtual competition" with 6 challenges. To see what they are and for more details, click on the Sports Tab (just below the Class Pages). Send in your scores to Mrs Webster or myself and we shall see who has the most accurate throw and the longest throw, who can jump the furthest distance or run the fastest! Good luck!

For those of you who are looking for new activities to keep fit, Mrs Rolls-Drew recommends having a look at the following websites.

The first one, has video tips for keeping active. The second one sets mini challenges for you as an individual, or you against a member of your family (if you love being competitive!) The third website is for the more serious workout; aerobics/yoga/fitness but also has belly dancing for the beginner!!

Have fun and keep active.


Madame Musson has recorded a short French dialogue for you to have a listen to, then try to answer the questions.



Still image for this video


This week's French role play is about directions. Listen carefully and try to answer these questions:

1. What is the young lady looking for?

2. Describe the route she should take to find it.

3. On which side of the road is the place she's looking for?

4. Which building will she pass on her way?

5. The young lady asks a second question. What does she want to know?

6. How long will it take to get there?


Bonne Chance
