Welcome to Year 5
Welcome to the Year 5 page.
Welcome to the Year 5 home learning page.
This page is a 1-stop shop for all things Year 5. You will find our topic webs, termly letters, homework pages and spellings sheets for each term here. This will help you find out what we are up to each half term and give you a focus for homework activities that relate to our learning topics. And it is a reminder of the weekly home learning tasks to complete too.
Alternatively, just ask me after school if you need any support.
Reading – please use the Reading Journal to log your reading. If you forget to log it at home, remember, you can log it at school. if you are learning remotely or at school, why not be a book reviewer. Send a message with a book review and I will post it on for you.
Spellings– Please take time to visit and learn these several times each week, to help the trickier spellings go in. The test is on Thursdays as usual. The lists are below - for those less confident spellers, there is a list B available.
Times tables – We are recapping our times tables this half term, so our first focus is on the 6x and 7x tables. For those of you wanting an extra challenge - why not try learning the 13x tables too. By the way, in our times tables tests, we will be using the inverse rule to test our knowledge too.
Sumdog – please try to log on to Sumdog to complete the activities created for you. These fit with our Maths curriculum and also help you recap facts you have previously learnt, including times tables.
Don't forget to use Seesaw too - we can share our messages and learning via the app and can celebrate great pieces of homework here as well.
The wider curriculum.
Take a look below at all the wonderful learning we have planned:
Science - we kick start our science topic with forces: gravity, air and water resistance, to name a few!
History - we start with our local history topic on Bolton Abbey, which includes a trip to this stunning location on the 23rd September.
Geography - building on earlier learning, Year 5 tackles the massive subject of mountains.
French - "Getting to know you" includes using verbs in the present and future tense, as well as getting to talk about ourselves.
Art - we start with sketching and drawing, inspired by Turner's depiction of Bolton Abbey and exploring the landscape work of Lowry.
Internet safety - explore the Be Internet Legends website - learn about keeping log-ins safe by tuning in to their broadcast:
Swimming starts this term on Tuesdays. Don't forget to bring your swimming stuff!
Stay safe and healthy
Please remember to follow the school routines to help you stay safe and healthy. Remember, these should be applied out of school too - keep washing/gelling your hands to keep them clean and avoid picking up or spreading infection. Take regular breaks, keep hydrated and stay happy.
