w/c Monday 1st June
We hope you have had an enjoyable half term and have enjoyed some of the sunshine. By now, you should hopefully have found a home learning routine that works for you and your family. As we have suggested previously, completing English and maths tasks in the morning before moving onto other areas of the curriculum might work well for you as this is what you are used to in school. Oak National Academy and BBC Bitesize are continuing to support your home learning and have weekly schedules of interesting lessons.
Here is this week’s Year 5 schedule for BBC Bitesize:
Check out the lessons for this week on Oak National Academy:
This week, the English lessons will teach you how to write an effective story ending. In maths, the learning will be based on decimals and this will include representing them in different ways, multiplying and dividing decimals by 10, 100 and 1000 as well as adding and subtracting decimals using different strategies. In science, you can learn about the steps in the rock cycle. In RE, you can discover why Buddhists mediate and which festivals Buddhists celebrate. Develop your Spanish speaking and learn how to say where you live! Finally, in music, you have the opportunity to develop your understanding of tempo, dynamics and emotion.
Remember that the websites we have signposted you to previously will be continuing to add more learning opportunities. Choose the websites that work best for you!

The World of David Walliams
We know that many of you enjoy reading books by David Walliams and many of you have been enjoying tuning into his ‘Elevenses’ to listen to him read. He has put together a wide range of free downloadable resources that are inspired by his books. We think you’ll really enjoy them. You can master the art of drawing in the style of Tony Moss, create your own Spitfire or explore the activity pack linked to your favourite book by David Walliams. Click on his books below to be taken to his exciting website!
Are you a Harry Potter fan? If so, explore Harry Potter At Home!
You’ll find lots of magical treats to keep you entertained from quizzes and puzzles to crafty videos. You can watch videos of familiar faces, including Daniel Radcliffe (who plays Harry Potter), read chapters from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone.
Check out the Crafting Magic section of the website where you can get inspired to create all sorts of magical things. You can learn how to make your own house bookmark. Which will you choose? Gryffindor, Ravenclaw, Slytherin or Hufflepuff? You can learn to draw a cute (although mischievous) Niffler and how to use paper to craft your own Howler – the angry red letters that give wizards a fright!
Here’s another quiz for you – can you pick the correct spellings? Take part to find out! Remember not to worry if you don’t know all the spellings yet. Use a range of strategies over the week to help you to learn how to spell the words. You could play hang man with someone at home using the spellings that you need to learn. When you think you’ve mastered them, take the quiz again to see how you have improved. Good luck!
