Welcome to the Year 5 class page. We will do our very best to continue to support your child's learning in these difficult times. If your child has not got a home-learning pack, please come to the school's office to collect it. The pack contains:


  • An overview sheet of task children can complete. Please do not worry if you cannot complete these.
  • A CGP KS2 Maths 10-minute workout book. We recommend three tasks a week.
  • A CGP KS2 English comprehension book. We recommend completing two a week. 
  • Logins for TT Rockstars - use this time to help your child know their times tables fluently.
  • Login for Reading Plus - An excellent online reading platform in which they read and answer questions.
  • Login for Purple Mash - I will aim to set a couple of tasks a week to complete. 


I will also set tasks on LBQ which the children know how to logon to. I will put the code on the this page for 9am. The tasks will be open until 2pm.


There will be TT Rockstar battles for the classes every Tuesday 9-3pm. 


We would rather give too much work than not enough and please do not worry if you can't access the online work. You can use the booklets, listen to them read and play maths games. 


Please do not hesitate to contact the school if you have any questions or concerns. We will endeavour to help you and your child as much as we can.


Many thanks,


The Year 5  team

Shadow investigation

Shadow investigation 1
Shadow investigation 2
Shadow investigation 3
Shadow investigation 4
Shadow investigation 5
In Year 5, we planned how we could investigate what happens to shadows throughout the day. We decided a good way was to measure the shadow of something big on the pitch every hour. We used a height measuring stick in the same position each hour and recorded the length of the shadow. We then discussed the apparent movement of the Sun across the sky and why this happens.
