Year 5 Home Learning Week Commencing 20th April

Spread the love

Hi all, we hope that you are all well and have managed to enjoy some sunshine over the past couple of weeks. We have some activities for you to complete over the next week.


We will be following the White Rose lessons which can be found using the following link:

We are starting with week 1 which starts with decimals up to 2dp. There is a video and activity for each day. Remember to using jottings to help you. They also have the answers so you can check work at the end.

Remember to keep playing TT Rockstars. New battles have been set.



We have been very fortunate and now have access to Scholastic Reading Library online allowing you to access lots of different books on their website.  We would like you to try hard to login to this at least three times in the week.  We have sent an email of instructions to your grown ups and they can also read about it here.


SATs companion

In SATS Companion, we have set English work based on an area that the year group need to do some work on and that is ‘tense’. Writing in the correct tense and making sure that the verb in your writing is the correct form for the tense you are writing in. For example…

If you went for a run round the park yesterday, your sentence would read:

Yesterday I ran round the park.

And not:

Yesterday I run round the park.

Watch the lesson video before you do the task. This can be found in the lesson video tab to the left of your screen and will appear as below (the arrows indicate where you select):


In maths, we are looking at decimal numbers. We will be ordering and rounding decimals as well as beginning to look at simple decimal to fraction equivalents.

Once again, it will help you if you watch the lesson video before attempting the task. This can also be found in the video tab to the left of your screen and will appear as below (the arrows indicate where you select):



The enchanted forest… where talking beasts walk… where a witch awaits… where a new world is about to be born. 

On a daring quest to save a beloved life, two friends are hurling into another world, where an evil sorceress seeks to enslave them. But them The Great Lion’s song weaves itself into the fabric of a new land, a land that will become known as The Great Kingdom. And in The Great Kingdom, all things are possible. 

Write your own story based on this blurb. Remember to use a story mountain to plot out your:  


Build up  

Main Event  




Have fun and make sure you use some really high level vocabulary to draw in and hook your reader. Work on those IPSACE openers and expanded noun phrases. Remember to add lots of detailed description for your readers.  

We would love to hear some of your best sentences in the comments!  

For an extra challenge, why not write your own blurb for another story you have written or your favourite reading book. You could even try to write a sequel for this story! 


The BBC are also putting together daily live lessons from Monday.


Have fun completing the activities. We would love to hear how you are all getting on.

Miss Whaites, Mrs Turiccki and Mrs Hatfield.
