Welcome to Year 5 2020-2021

Summer Homework Ideas for Year 5 2020-21

To 5EC and 5BW 2020-21,  

We are so looking forward to meeting you and starting the new school year together. 

If you are looking for something to do over the summer holidays, why not get a head start on your first topic: Pharaohs. It is all about the Egyptians and there are some ideas below for what you could do. If you have your own idea though, that's great! 

We look forward to seeing all of your amazing projects.

Mrs Clark, Miss Bagshaw and Mrs Watkins 


Pharaohs Knowledge Organiser - Year 5 2020-2021 

A Knowledge Organiser sets out what we would like the children to know by heart by the end of the topic. We expect the majority of children to be able to recall all of the information on the Knowledge Organiser by the end of the unit of work. During their topic, the children will take part in regular quizzes that help stretch their long-term memory and develop their recall of key information.

This year, we will be producing 'Knowledge Organisers' which are the ‘go-to’ documents outlining the essential knowledge that the teachers will be covering across a unit of work; including dates, famous figures, vocabulary, definitions, and other information. These Knowledge Organisers will be shared with pupils, parents and carers before units of work are taught, with the aim that everyone knows exactly what is being taught and what the children need to learn.

Here is our first Knowledge Organiser for Pharoahs. Why not have a look at it over the summer and see how much of the information you can learn by heart before we come back to school? You could also research further some of the things you find the most interesting.

Home learning for Y5 children - 5CS and 5JL

We will update this page regularly with work that can be completed at home. 
Please see the suggested timetable and activities below. 
You can upload your work, or photos of your work, onto the Year 5 Sharepoint - details of how to log on to this were sent out on the last day of school. If you are having any trouble with this, please contact the school office so we can help.

We are giving everyone a call every few weeks to keep in touch and see how you all are.
These calls may be from the school's number, or an unknown number if staff are working from home.
If we are unable to contact you, we will leave you a voice message and try again at a later stage. If you need anything between calls, please contact the school office who can pass messages on to Teachers. 
We look forward to speaking to you and helping you in any way we can. 


We have had a bit of a tidy up! 

We have moved all the Must Do videos (as well as some other videos) to the bottom of this page and removed a lot of the old work from previous weeks. If you think you need anything that we have taken off the web page, please contact us and we can email you additional bits.

There are also all the links to other websites (Joe Wicks, Twinkl, White Rose etc) at the bottom of the page as well if you need them and some of our challenge sheets for other activities you can be doing at home. 


Stay safe! We are missing all of 5CS and 5JL. Thank you for all your hard work. 

Mrs Swan and Mrs Lynam

We just wanted to say we have absolutely loved teaching you this year, and have missed you so much over the last few months. Well done for a fab year and for everything you have done at home. You are all stars! We are so proud of you and wish we could say goodbye properly. 

Love from Mrs Lynam and Mrs Swan x

Leicestershire Libraries Summer Reading Challenge!


Home learning - Please find below: 

  • This week's theme for home learning. 
  • An example timetable. 
  • The must do tasks for this week, including documents that go with these activities. 

From next week - week commencing 15th June - we are going to approach the Home Learning in a slightly different way which we hope will help to connect the curriculum together for children both at home and school.

  • Each week will have a different theme and all home learning tasks have been designed to link together around this theme. It will be a project based approach, a little bit like the homework, where you will be able to pick and choose activities.
  • In order to be consistent across the year groups the same theme will apply to Years 2, 3, 4 and 5. This will mean that if you have children in different year groups, you can work together on the same project.
  • English and Maths have suggested year group tasks, however, you can look at older/younger ideas as you wish. You might even have other ideas too- be as creative as you like!
  • These tasks have been designed so that you do not need information printing off, all that is required are the basic resources to do the task. E.g. paper, pens, paints etc.
  • An example timetable will be published each week but you can drop activities into the timetable to suit you as you wish.
  • We hope this new idea will be a new fresh start for some of you where the work is becoming a bit of a struggle.
  • You can still upload this work to SharePoint or OneDrive, or email it to the teachers. 
  • Must Do tasks will continue as before:
  • Writing Must Do tasks will be based on the weekly theme and will be highlighted on the activity plan. These will also be available as a word document on the website.
  • Reading Must Do tasks will also be available as a separate document and again will be based on the weekly theme.
  • Maths Must Do tasks continue to be a consolidation of the key objectives for each year group and will be available as separate documents on the website. The activity plan also includes some additional maths activities linked to the weekly theme.
