Welcome to the Year 5 School Closure Page


Hello year 5 parents and children,

Your work for the week will be emailed to you by Monday morning at 9 am. We will be setting work via Purple Mash, Times Tables Rock Stars and email. There are also optional maths tasks to complete via the Oak National Academy website. Please check your emails on Monday morning for the work for the week! 

A list of useful websites has been uploaded below and has also been uploaded onto the school closure - general information page. This could help you extend your child's learning further.

Even though we are setting work on Times Tables Rockstars every Friday, they could still be going on this daily which will help them practice their multiplication skills. We would like you to be maintaining regular reading at home as this could be a good opportunity for your child to  practice their reading skills and grow in confidence in their ability.

If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us either on or

Thank you,

Miss Mays & Mr Elvery (Starlings)

Mrs Clarke & Miss Wills (Magpies)

Working from Home

Work will now be set via Purple Mash, Times Table Rock Stars and via email. Please follow the timetable below so you know what to be completing each week. 

All of the work will be set on these websites for the entire week on the Monday of that week by 9am. We do not expect you to complete all of the tasks on the first day. You have the whole week to complete them.




We hope you are all safe and well and look forward to seeing the work you create!

Year 5 and 6 spellings

It would be a good idea to keep practicing the Year 5 and 6 spellings whilst at home. We were practicing about 6/7 of these words a day before school closed.

It would also be a good idea to look up the dictionary definitions for the words you practice and put them into sentences of your own so you can use them in context. If you don't have a dictionary at home, type the word into Google and it will give you the definitions.

Happy spelling!

Online Safety
Dear parents and carers,
You have been emailed an attachment and link about online safety so please check your emails for these. Just in case you can't access them through the email, they are here too.
It gives some guidance and insight into some of the usual as well as latest apps and websites and the dangers they pose for children and tips on keeping them safe.  This is especially important at present where we are expecting children to access online learning but this may not be supervised all the time.
Stay safe,
Miss Mays and Mrs Clarke
