Year 5


Summer Term Home Schooling Tasks 

We hope you had a lovely half term and enjoyed the beautiful weather.

Please subscribe to our Year 5 YouTube channel, where you will find our online lessons. Each week day we will release an English and maths lesson for your child to work through. We have aimed to put all the tasks on the videos so the children can simply pause the screen and complete the work at their own pace. The answers for the maths activities are at the end of the video. One reading skills video will be available each week with follow up questions on the website saved as PDF (each PDF has the text, tasks and answers). There will also be topic PDF tasks available for your child to choose an activity from. Please encourage your child to take part in or create their own PE lesson (see the summer term 2 PE tasks below). We have also uploaded some SMSC tasks, which your child may wish to complete.

Each video lesson has been differentiated to enable all abilities to access the Year 5 curriculum: Bronze, Silver (Year 5 age related expectations), Gold and Challenge. Please allow your child to choose a task that that they feel is appropriately challenging. It is OK to start off easier and move up to the next challenge, when your child feels more confident. Do not feel pressurised to move onto the next lesson if your child has struggled. Go at your own pace. You might feel it is more beneficial for your child to repeat a lesson or try the next challenge rather than move onto a new lesson (especially in maths).

Mr Lee will be online during the times stated below for children to ask questions.  Therefore, aim to press play on the video on YouTube at the start time of the lesson and then the questions will come at the relevant time.  These videos can of course still be accessed outside of these times but the staff member will not be available to answer the questions.  The comments will still be at the bottom of the videos so the answers to your questions might have already been answered.

Please do not stress about providing home schooling. It is our job to provide work for your child but do not feel pressurised to complete it. Pick and choose what will work for your family and current situation. Remember some days will be good and some not so good. When we return to school, we will get your child back on track. Enjoy your time together, share your calm, share your strength and share your laughter.

We thought that we would do things a little differently for this last half term, so we have provided different tasks for you to choose from and complete over the coming weeks. Please continue sharing your learning via Facebook, Twitter or email.

There will be no topic videos this term; so just work through the tasks one at a time and go at your own pace. Teachers will still be available on Facebook to answer any of your queries.
