Year 5

Here are some websites for Year 5 during this period of home learning. There will be lessons and activities set most days on Google Classroom. You will need to check in daily to see what has been set and needs doing. A timetable below shows a suggested guide of possible activities for the week. However, you may want to spend a chunk of time focusing on improving in a particular area such as times tables, punctuation or handwriting. You could even focus on learning to speak fluent French!

Don't forget that learning to do life skills such as making a meal or cooking from a recipe, gardening, housework, helping to make a shopping list are all incredibly useful and valuable. Learn to play a board game, sketch the plants and animals you see around your home and study the night sky for constellations and planets as the weeks go by.
