Every day a learning adventure

Year 5

Home Learning Timetable

Hello from Mrs Dewey and Mr Hingston and welcome to our Year 5 page. Having to say goodbye to the children so early and so suddenly has been a big shock for us as well as the children. We hope you are all managing to stay safe and well at home.  During this difficult time, maintaining the children's learning is really important and this page is designed to help with that. Please see below a suggested timetable which may help you to structure home learning. Of course, it is just a suggestion but, as it broadly follows the Year 5 timetable that the children are already familiar with, it may help you build some routine into the weekdays. If you have any questions, please contact us via

Write on...

While everyone is at home, it's important that we keep up our basic skills so that we're ready to hit the ground running when the current difficult situation comes to an end.


If you follow this web link, it will take you to some animations to help you practise the different joins we use in school. You don't need to print out any worksheets. Just use some lined paper (or draw lines on plain paper). We would like you to start with the Continuous Cursive Letter bottom joins this week.


Reading Aloud Allowed

Reading aloud to others - children to adults and adults to children - is an important part of our daily curriculum and building this into your home learning would be hugely beneficial. The children have their home reading books with them and these can a great starting point but if you're looking for other ideas the World Book Day website ( has lots of fun ideas, creative and booky challenges that are well worth looking at. In addition the site also includes free audio-books, including full chapter books, that can be enjoyed by all the family. Watch this space for more ideas.


Making spelling fun!

For children in Years 5 and 6, there is a list of spellings that children are expected to know by the end of primary school. This is a mixture of high frequency words and words that children frequently misspell. A copy of the list appears below. As a fun way of practising those spellings, we will be posting a crossword or a word puzzle featuring those words each week for children - and parents - to attempt! The answers to the puzzles will be posted in the following week and a new puzzle posted. Let us know how you get on.
