YEAR 5 2020-21

Home learning!

We are working hard to support children in continuing their learning during these difficult times. Here you will find home learning tasks for children with daily lessons, resources, videos and more. Please encourage your child/children to access the learning on a daily basis with a timetable that suits your household. 

Websites for children to access during the enforced school closure. 

BBC bitesize is providing maths, English and foundation subject lessons. Their daily lessons can be found here:


Oak Natioanl Academy is also providing daily lessons in English, maths and a foundation subject. This can be accessed here:

Some children may find it beneficial to navigate to the year group below to ensure they can access the lessons/complete the tasks set.


Further tasks/extension work can be accessed in many different places. Twinkl has a comprehensive catalogue of resurces for just about everything. It is currently free to access Twinkl's content:


The UK government has also compiled a comprehensive list of potential resources available to access. Most are free to access, with a few requiring simple registration. The lists are broken down into subject areas, then by age group:


I will also be posting challenges/'big thinking' questions/activities on ClassDojo at different times, without overfacing children. 

Children should upload any work via their ClassDojo portfolio for feedback where appropriate. 

If any additional support/advice is required, please use the messages button on ClassDojo. 


Thank you and stay safe. 

Mr Davies.

Mr Davies is looking forward to working with the children again. 


  • PE will be on Tuesday afternoon and Friday afternoon. 
  • Homework will be sent home on a Friday afternoon, to be returned the following Wednesday.

Year 5 art gallery inspired our Whitby visit

Thank you to all the parents that came. We raised a superb £165! This will be enjoyed by your children.  

We also floated /testedthe boats that we built at Whitby. 

Class music experiments!

Children have been experimenting with electrical circuits to make music using the 'Makey Makey.'

Our visit to Whitby is coming up. Please check Class Dojo for regular updates and pictures!

Our first topic this year is The Industrial Revolution.

We will be learning about how Britain changed from being a farming country and living mainly from our own produce, to becoming an industrialpowerhouse with trade links across the globe!
