Year 5

Each week during the closure, your child will be set reading, spelling and mathematics tasks for Monday to Wednesday and Thursday to Sunday. Please refer to the Year 5 maths guide in the pack your child brought home for guidance if support is needed. See the tasks below:


  • 3 x Mathletics activities
  • 3 x Reading Eggspress activities
  • A spelling list to be practised 3 times through your child's choice of Readiwriter activities
  • Timestable practise on Timestable Rockstars - look out for the battles!


Your child will also be directed to 5 project based activities for you to choose from. These will be posted on the class page each week and may need you to redirect to Showbie for some resources to support you. I have loved seeing and listening to the children's pictures and voice notes on Showbie so far! Please check back each week for more project learning! 


You can contact me with questions through or children can send a quick comment through Showbie! 


I hope you are keeping safe and well!

Week 3 Closure Activities - 06.04.2020


This week's activities will all be linked to Easter and Spring to celebrate the lovely weather we've been having the festivities that are coming! 


1.  Use YouTube to remind yourself of the Easter story then recreate it as a comic strip, diary entry or a film/freeze frame to upload to Showbie! 


2. Use the story starter from this picture on Pobble 365 to write your own story! If you click the 'Pick a Day' icon at the top of the page, you can choose a different picture and story starter if you'd rather!


3. Make a Spring craft to bring some cheer to your room or windows! You could even deliver some on your daily walk! Here a list of sites with lots of fun Spring crafts to try:


4. Use a puzzle maker website or a piece of paper to create a word search or cross word filled with lovely Springtime vocabulary! Challenge someone in your house  to find all of the words - who can do it fastest?


5. Write a poem to describe the beautiful nature that pops up at this time of year! There are so many topics to choose: Easter, rabbits, chicks, daffodils, blue skies or anything else you spot outside! You could write:

  • A shape poem (where the words are written in the shape of what you're writing about)
  • A Haiku (where the syllables are 5, 7, 5)
  • A Cinquain (do you remember these? 2, 4, 6, 8, 2 syllables)
  • An acrostic poem (where the topic word is written vertically and each line stars with a letter from the word). 
  • Any other style of poetry you know!


Happy crafting and writing! I'm loving seeing your work on Showbie, the email and the PTA Facebook page!


Stay safe
