Year 5 Home Learning



What are you reading?

Please create a Book Review to encourage other children in the year group to borrow the book this year.


Introduce the book.

Tell us about the book, but don’t give away the ending!

Tell us about your favourite part of the book or make a connection with another book / film / TV programme / a real life experience.

Give a recommendation (e.g., If you like…, you will love this book or I recommend this book to anyone who likes…).

We will display quality reviews in the Book Corner.

Happy reading.

Home Learning 03/02/17

This week, in Maths we have been exploring the world of 3D shape and learning how to use our key mathematical vocabulary to describe the different shapes with precision.

For our home learning this week, we are to select 5 different 3D shapes and describe their properties, before finding examples of them in the real world.

Remember, the words we have been using are:

  • Faces
  • Edges
  • Vertices
  • Apex
  • Parallel
  • Perpendicular

If you want to investigate more about nets of 3D shapes, try this site which has lots of examples that you can print out and build.

Homework 18/11/16

5F have been reading non chronological reports in Guided Reading.  This week children are to create a page for our class book about a fictional or real animal that lives in a river based habitat.  This could be an animal that lives either entirely or partially in the water.

Think carefully about how the non-chronological reports are structured and the different sections of information you believe the reader will need to understand all about your animal.

Homework is due in on Friday, 25th November

Homework 11/11/16

This week, Year 5 are to create a game based on their target times-tables.  The game could be for one player or the whole class to help others to learn their times-tables in a different way.

We want everyone to be as creative as possible and we will be using them later in the term and evaluate how effective our games are in helping us all to learn our multiplication facts.

This homework is due on Friday, 18th November.

Remember, that everyone now has their own Mathletics account.  Mr Foster and Mr Murati will be allocating activities based on the learning we have been doing that week in Maths so that children can practise what we have been studying in class.
