Year 5 Home Learning Project

Monday-Friday at 9am, a free live stream with Joe Wicks is available via YouTube, so let's join in everyday for some PE at home! Remember it is super important to stay active, even if you are in your own living room:

Care Home of the Week this week is:

Codnor Park Care Home, 88 Glass House Hill, Codnor, Derbyshire, DE5 9QT

Feel free to create colourful images, write to residents telling them what you're doing whilst learning at home, tell them about your pets - even the weather! Anything at all. Remember if you can't post them yet or don't live close enough to put them through the letterbox of the care home, don't worry! You can save your beautiful cards and letters with the care home address for that week and keep them somewhere safe so when we do come back to school, Miss Budge can post them for you.There is no limit on how many postcards you create - let's spread as much kindness and positivity as we can!

Children are expected to read aloud to an adult a minimum of 3 times a week at home. Each read should be recorded in the reading record provided. In year five, children are learning to engage in discussion after reading and we are aiming to read for longer periods of time. 

Please build up the length of time that children are reading by adding two or three minutes onto the length of their read each week. Ideally, one session of reading should last for at least fifteen minutes to allow children to build up their stamina.

Homework is sent home on a Friday and will be due the following Friday. This will usually consist of maths and spelling homework. Optional topic homework will also be set over holidays.

Thank you for your continuous support,

The Year 5 Team


 Well done Year 5!
