Remember! There's lots more activities to keep you out of mischief on the  LEARNING AT HOME page! ENJOY!


WEEK BEGINNING 29th June 2020


Good morning Year Five. I hope you and your families are all keeping well. I will continue to call fortnightly and remember if you need to ask me anything, I am contactable at school.

Remember, there is no need to print anything if you can’t access a printer, you can do any writing or jottings in a notepad or on the computer/Ipad. Continue to stay safe, wash your hands and social distance. I will speak to you all soon.

Take care and stay safe!

Year Five pupils, this will be the timetable for you to follow from now on whilst you’re learning from home.



This week we are going to look at fantasy stories.

 Monday, read the blurb of Street Child and write a prediction of what you think will happen. Activity Word / pdf

Tuesday and Thursday, your SPAG activity will be on tenses.

SPAG Introduction / Tuesday SPAG word / Tuesday pdf / Thursday SPAG word / Thursday SPAG pdf

Wednesday, read the extracts from Street Child and answer the comprehension questions. Activity word / pdf

On Friday, I would like you to use the plan that you made last week to write your fantasy story. Remember to make it really interesting! How will you create an atmosphere? Imagine you are in the classroom writing it during a hot task. Think of all the writing expectations I always go on about. Figurative language, adjectives, powerful verbs, dialogue, relative clauses, parenthesis, Y5/6 words and correct punctuation.




Please use this White Rose link https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/year-5/ . This will allow you to watch the videos to help you understand the concepts. We have already learned about these topics but it is great revision, especially for the reasoning questions. I have also attached the worksheets and answers for the week here on the website as they are not accessible on the White Rose website.

Remember that there is also MyMaths, TT Rock Stars and Classroom Secrets to help keep your maths skills sharp. Make sure you’re using these too!  Also, Mr Minchin has sent a resource that has SATS style questions. Work your way through the year groups. You will be able to access these on the Maths Section on the LAH Page. Keep your eyes peeled for those, they are fantastic to get you ready for Year 6.




This half term’s virtues and values are Learned and Wise. For your two hours of R.E this week, I would like you to explore this link: http://jesuitinstitute.org/Pages/JPP/6%20Learned%20Wise/JPPLearnedWise.htm and create two posters, .telling people ways that we can show that we’re learned and wise. I want one poster for each value. Remember to be creative and include scripture

We have now completed the topics for Year Five. For the remaining weeks, I am going to upload some Science activities that Mr Woolman has sent to us teachers that I would like you to try and challenge yourself to complete. It would be great if you could work with somebody at home to complete these.

I will not be uploading them weekly, instead I have attached them all in a separate section on this web page so that you can access them throughout the weeks, Enjoy the scientific challenges, I know how much you all love a great investigation.

This half term in History, we would have been looking at the Victorian era; specifically looking at Victorian Birmingham. I was so excited to teach this topic to you; however, I know you will enjoy it just as much learning from home. Each week I am going to set you an activity to do. It might require art work, written work, research or other creative methods.


For this week’s work, I would like you to do some research about Victorian Workhouses. If any of you would like to read a book that will help you, I read it during Lockdown and it’s brilliant, it’s called Street Child.

Using Google, gather as many facts as you can about the workhouses. The more facts you gather, the better as you will need to use these for your English work next week. You can record the facts however you wish, whether it be a poster, spider diagram, PowerPoint or any other creative method.

Next year you will be going into your final chapter at St. Catherine’s. I know that you will have a lot to look forward to when you go into Year Six and you will all be great role models to the younger children.

During the next few weeks, I will be setting you some transition activities to complete in the PSHE time. For this week, I would like you all to write down your hopes and dreams for next year. Think big, you are all very capable of achieving whatever you want to achieve when you put your mind to it!
