Class 5

Welcome to the Class 5 School Closure page. 

As schools are not yet open, we will continue updating our class page with suggested learning activities, resources and information.

 

Every week you will find 5 English tasks, 5 Maths tasks, 5 Topic tasks, 10 new spelling words and Times Table Rockstars.

 

Whilst we are not expecting you to replicate school at home, it will be important that you all try to do some work each school day to keep your skills up.

 

Each morning I will still be saying 'Hello' on the Class Story page on the Class Dojo app. You'll also be able to ask me any questions or just tell me about what you have been up to!

Try to complete a couple of the tasks each day. Some are quick tasks but some will take you a bit longer. As always, make your own choices about how to present your work. You can complete a task in your workbooks or online. Whatever you decide to do, it would be great to see some of it so please keep sending me things to look at!

You can choose to do the tasks in any order. I have included the answers where possible so you can check your own answers afterwards. No peeking! You can complete your tasks online or in your workbooks.

If you want to include some structure to your day you could try following this home learning timetable:

 

9:00-9:30 Exercise to wake up your brains

9:30-10:30 Select your first task – either English, Maths or Topic

10:30-11:00 Break time – have a snack, read a book, do some colouring or play a game

11:00-12:00 Select your second task – either English, Maths or Topic

12:00-1:00 Lunch time!

1:00-2:00 Select your final task – either English, Maths or Topic

2:00-2:30 Exercise - Try to create your own at-home workout. You could watch some online tutorials for inspiration!

2:30-3:00 Reading - Take some time to just enjoy your book!

A printed booklet will also be available for you to collect from the office foyer every week if it is safe for you to do so. The booklet contains a selection of English, Maths, Topic, Spelling and Times Table tasks. You may find having the printed booklet easier if you are having difficulties accessing the internet. As some of the tasks are the same as on the website, there is no expectation that you need to complete both the booklet and online tasks. A copy of the printed booklet is provided below for you to see.

If you need some more ideas:

 

  • Practice your times tables – multiplication and division! Create your own times tables game to help you practice.

 

  • Practice the Y5/Y6 spellings words. You can use look, cover, write, check as well as have a go using some of the words in your own sentences.

 

  • Read for at least 30 minutes. This could be a story book or a non-fiction book, a magazine or comic. Even being online involves reading!

 

  • Spend at least an hour on different tasks. Have another look through our old Home Learning booklets. There are also lots of other tasks you could choose from on our Class 5 web page.

 

  • Write your own story chapter book. You could focus on one chapter a day. Don’t forget to follow what we would do in the classroom – plan, write, read, edit.

 

  • Use your username and password to log into Times Table Rockstars and Sumdog to practice your maths skills.

Most importantly though, look after yourselves and your families and stay healthy!

Reading

The most important thing you can do at home is read, read and read a little bit more!

Try to aim for at least 30 minutes every day. This could be one of your own books or an eBook online.

 

Check out this fantastic website for even more eBooks.

You just need to click on the tap that says 'My class login' and enter the following:

 

My class name: stdenys

Password: pupil

 

When you click on 'My bookshelf' you will be able to browse a large library of books including some well known classics.

If you would prefer to listen to a story try out this free library of books:

Elevenses with The World of David Walliams

Now, every day at 11am, David Walliams, author of The Boy in The Dress and Gangsta Granny, will be sharing an audio story from one of his best-selling World's Worst Children short story collections.

 

Whether you are already firm fans of the author or not, this is a sure way to add some fun and laughter to your mornings. The daily treat is perfectly named 'Elevenses', and everyone can tune in for a tale brilliantly told by David Walliams. And, yes, he does all the voices!

Spellings and Writing

Practice reading the Y5/Y6 spellings words. You can use look, cover, write, check as well as have a go using some of the words in your own sentences. Also, check the meaning of any words you are not sure about.

Maths

Practice your times tables every day – multiplication and division! Create your own times tables game to help you practice and challenge someone in your family to play with you.

Watch and listen to our times table songs just like in the classroom.

If you want to try Times Table Rockstars at home yourself, here are two weeks of questions. Get someone to time you for three minutes and then work out your Rock Status at the end of the week!

Here are some more Maths activities you might like to try at home with your families. You don't need to complete them all. You don't need to complete in order. Pick and choose any you'd like to try!
