Year 5 Home Learning


With the concerns over the coronavirus outbreak and how this might impact your child’s learning, we wanted to offer you some ideas to help you continue their education during the school closures. We also appreciate that keeping children engaged in their learning whilst at home is not going to be easy and so we have prepared perfectly matched content for your child that can be completed both independently or with adult support. The home learning will provide daily activities in English, Maths, Science and Topic (History, Geography, Art, D&T)



  • A worked-through reminder of the learning involved, followed by practice sheets, usually with a choice of ‘Mild’ (easier) or ‘Hot’ (harder).
  • An ‘If You’re Stuck’ sheet with an activity covering pre-requisite skills.
  • Mastery questions so children can check that they’ve nailed it.  
  • Daily Times Table practice. This can be done on Times Tables Rock Stars


  • A PowerPoint with the week's English lessons adapted from the CLPE "Power of Reading" unit on "Tom's Midnight Garden"
  • A teacher reading video reading the text for that day - this text can also be viewed in the PowerPoint
  • A teacher led CLPE session on Zoom on Wednesday mornings.


English and Maths should each take approximately 1 hour, but please do not spend longer on this unless you wish to do so.


Science and Topic

  • Activities to support our learning in science about the Forces.
  • A range of history, geography, art and D&T activities around our topic of 'Ancient Greece'


All work can be recorded in the Home School Learning Journals sent home on Thursday 18th March - if you have run out of space in these work can be done on sheets of paper, a notebook or a writer's notebook made from sheets of paper stapled/fixed together.


Most activities do not require any home printing and can be viewed directly from a screen as they are in PDF format. If you are having any trouble viewing these documents please download Adobe Acrobat for free from


In addition to this, we will also be recording live videos of our class story books being read by teachers and other fun activities. These will be available via Holy Trinity Primary School Facebook page.

Summer Term W/B: 20.04.20


We hope that you all have had a lovely Easter break and have been enjoying the lovely weather we have been having recently. What have you been up to? I have been enjoying running around our beautiful town taking in all the lovely rainbows in windows and chalk messages on pavements, I even took part in a "Picture Challenge" with my running club where we each went on (seperate!) runs looking for these 7 things: 1)Bluebells, 2) An animal (not your pet), 3) A street name with starting with the first letter of your first name, 4) A rainbow, 5) A hill (we had to take a picture from the bottom then run up to the top and take a picture from there too!), 6) A red postbox and 7) Something that you found on your run that was funny/random/ beautiful. This challenge really cheered me up and made me take more notice of my surroundings on my runs, can you have  go at the challenge on your next daily exercise walk? I would love to see pictures on Twitter!


It's a strange start to the summer term but we have some exciting things coming up. We are starting our new topic of Ancient Greece this week! I love this topic because there is just so much to learn, so don't forget if you need a little bit extra Mr Dale and I would love to see anything that you can find out about Ancient Greece. We will also be starting to use videos to help you with your learning - some might even feature Mr Dale and I. 


I hope that you and your families are well and that you are keeping safe at home. Don't forget to keep in touch with us on Twitter and  We will also be starting to use class emails, this week we just want to know that you are safe and well and hear about what you have been getting up to at home so make sure you ask a parent/carer to drop us an email Seahorses: Dinosaurs:


Miss Smith :)

Welcome to the Summer Term!

Hello Dinosaurs and Seahorses, we have missed you all greatly at school and we hope you had a lovely Easter holiday. A big thank you for all of your art challenges that you have sent in, it has been great to see all the creative and wonderful things you have produced and there will more challenges starting again next week. It has been uplifting around where I live seeing the rainbows in the windows, positive chalk messages on the pavements, the kind acts of people supporting one another and aiming to bring a smile. It is reassuring to see our values of respecting one another, being kind to one another and understanding that we all approach and deal with situations like this in slightly different ways. As we return to home learning this week, some of you may be feeling a little overwhelmed by the thought of more work from home we want to reassure you that we have lots of exciting things to look forward to with our new topic of Ancient Greece! You will also be able to interact with both Miss Smith and I through some live lessons and presentations starting on Tuesday! Head over to our learning pages to see what is in store. If you have any questions please get in touch, but make sure that you have fun, keep exercising, and enjoying the magnificence of spring as it unfurls around us! Mr Dale
