Year 5


Please check the website and both your Stream and Classwork on Google Classroom daily.       

Hello Year 5s,

What a brilliant, hard-working bunch you are! We have been so impressed with the quality of work you are sending us and the enthusiasm and creativity you continue to put into your home learning. We have seen lots of great work and it is clear that you have put lots of effort in to ensure they are 'Year 5 standard'. We would like to say a big well done to all of you who have been checking this website and also been going on Google Classroom to work on tasks.


This week is ‘Buddy Week’. During this week we would like you to use the attached ’Ideas to help settle your buddy’ sheet and create a personal welcome pack from you to your buddy. 
There are different ways to send your work to us:
•    email it directly to Mrs Daker , who will print it
•    drop off at school in an envelope, clearly labelled with your and your buddy’s name – drop off details will be sent to you shortly (please do not drop off anything until all the details are sorted and sent to you)
All work should reach AYJS by Friday 10th July. Remember to create all of your work to a Year 5 standard to impress your buddy. Have fun and enjoy the activities.


Don’t forget the other work that you can be busy doing- TT Rockstars, Mental Maths books, White Rose Maths lessons, the Daily Maths Challenge, Mr. Green’s times tables challenge, Pobble 365 writing, Spelling activities from Mrs Daker (on her Google classroom) and of course, Reading! Don’t forget to check this page and our classrooms regularly for updates.

It is a good idea for you to make a timetable so that you can spread work and tasks out - we don't want you to be on screens all the time. 

Thank you for those that are sharing work. Don't worry if you are doing it but not sharing- we trust that you will be doing your best. Home learning is different but as you know we like a challenge and we are so proud of you all for staying strong and positive.  Keep up the good work.

  • Complete the Daily Maths Challenge in your Google Classroom. Post your answers on there as well and look to see if other people have got the same as you.
  • TT Rockstars: Well done to Senatumu who came 1st in the house competition!
  • Complete one test per week from your Mental Arithmetic book.
  • White Rose Maths in partnership with the BBC Bitesize Daily team has developed a 12-week learning programme for the summer term. Each week four new lessons are added. Every lesson comes with a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully.  


  • Keep reading! Try to read each day if you can. If you are running out of new books take a look at the Accelerated Reading website ( . They are giving free access to 7,000 digital books and 5 daily news articles. smiley
  • Continue to practise spellings from the Year 5 Spelling Word Wall using your Spelling Strategies. Please log into Mrs Daker's Google classroom for weekly spelling lists and activities.
  • Have a look at for writing ideas. This resource starts with a 'weird, wonderful and/or thought provoking image' to encourage children to write imaginatively. The starter activities help launch ideas and also focus on spelling, punctuation and grammar choices to improve writing. Great for discussion and some fabulous images to choose from!  Hopefully, children will want to talk about what they see and then write about it.  There's also a colourful board below for the children to tick off different types of writing that they choose to do. Time to get creative! 

Continue to work through your Summer Learning Challenge and see how many virtual points you can score. Feel free to take pictures, email them to us or simply do them with your family. You could design a grid to record how many points you have or if you have your book at home you could record them in there. Good luck.
