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.

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.
