Working together to succeed in life

Year 5

Updated: 17.7.20

Happy holidays everyone!

I hope you enjoy your time away before we are together again in September.

Just to remind you that it is still important to keep your brains active. They are muscles – if you don’t exercise them, they will be harder to use later!

I would recommend keeping up with your times tables and other mental maths. Practicing writing (about anything you like) using your punctuation and grammar knowledge and do lots of reading! Cereal boxes, magazines, articles, books that interest you - anything! You could even catch up on some of your home learning you missed by accessing past links on our page.

Scroll down to access revision activities.

But remember, also have a lovely break!

Enjoy playing outside, spending time with loved ones and be good!

Take care and stay safe,

Mrs Khan.


Revision activities:

Click here to access our End of Year Expectations for Year 5 booklet.

It gives you the objectives and expectations for the end of Year 5. Don’t worry if you feel like your child hasn’t covered them all – next year in Year 6 we will be teaching using a ‘recovery curriculum’ method, making sure we fill in those gaps before moving on.

A little bit of revision might help your child remember concepts so they can build on it. But do have a break from it as well :)

Replying to Aliyah: Hi Aliyah! Lovely to hear from you :) As it says on this page, even if you don't do all the activities, at least try to do some reading, writing and maths everyday. Doing your kitchen sounds exciting! I'm sure there's lots of measuring, calculating money or amount of paint/tiles you need and lots of other real life maths/English skills you will be doing! Send some pictures of you doing these - it would be great to see what you have been up to!

            We created our own art work based on the style of David Hockney, who created beautiful landscape art. 

            Year 5 have been busy looking at structures and how triangular structures can be used to strengthen a building or construction. First, we made structures using paper. The aim was to make the tallest structure, which could also hold the weight. After that, using our knowledge of strengthening structures, we craeted dens out in the field. They had to be large enough so everyone in our group could fit in. When Mrs Khan tested them all luckily no one's den collapsed!

            Year 5 have been learning about World War 2. They have been looking at the work of Henry Moore, who was a war time artist. They created their own sketches in the style of Henry Moore, aiming to create mood and emotion within their drawing.

            Year 5 have had a fantastic time at Eden Camp! Scroll through the pictures to see how much we have learnt, whilst also having fun!

            As part of their "Out of this World" topic, Year 5 learnt lots about space and planets in the solar system.   They made papier mache planets while learning facts about each one.

            Year 5 also created space art in the style of Peter Thorpe!

            We began Year 5 by thinking about what it means to be a good person, see what you think about our ideas below, how many different languages do you notice?

            Year 5 have had lots of fun learning about planets.

            They have used lots of different sources, including planet songs, like the one below:
