Year 5 Home Learning

Please contact me by email daily so I can keep track of your learning:

This page will be updated in the evening ready for the following day. At this point, the resources will no longer be available. Please save/screenshot anything you may need before 4pm each day.

Check Teams for your live lesson guided reading groups.

Tuesday-Friday I will be live on Teams at 1pm for any work related questions/support. However, you can post at any time to receive support ASAP (written or video call). 

Come to this page every day and watch every video. You can do every activity without using Teams.  

Together, I bet we will still have a brilliant time on our 'Scream Machine' topic! Underneath the welcome video, there is a timetable that we will be following whilst we are learning at home. 

Please be aware that for tomorrow's (Thursday) science lesson you will need the following equipment:

  • a tall see through container (e.g. vase, empty cooking oil bottle, tall pint glass)
  • plasticine/playdoh/blutac or a similar kind of item
  • a good quantity of washing up liquid/bubble bath/laundry detergent which will be reusable afterwards

Story time!

Our text for this half term is 'The Boy who Swam with Piranhas' by David Almond.  It is a fun but thought-provoking book that links to our 'Scream Machine' topic.  I will post recordings reading the story everyday. 

Quick questions about today's chapters are below. The letters refer to what type of VIPERS question it is. V - vocabulary; I - inference; P - predict; E - explain; R - retrieval; S - summarise/sequence. 

  • (R) What is Pancho Pirelli wearing? 
  • (E) Explain why Pancho threw different items into the tank before asking for money. 
  • (P) Stan feels as if Pancho is talking directly to him. Why do you think that is?
