Remote Learning


Good morning year 5,

I hope you are keeping nice and warm on this snowy day.  I have planned some activities that you can complete at home that you will enjoy.


In our recent lessons we have looked at Alex rider and how he escaped the academy. In our active reading lesson, the story ended with a cliff hanger and Smithers had located Alex on his GPS. Can you use your imagination to tell me what happens next? Does Alex make it? What problems does he face? Will the enemy capture him? Is Smithers actually on Alex’s side or will he betray him? You decide. Remember to use your descriptive language so the reader can paint a picture in their head.


In maths we have been looking at adding and subtracting fraction. Next week we will be looking more at improper fractions and mixed numbers. To help with this you can practice your times tables. You can practice on Times Tables Rock Stars (bonus point to children who send challenges to Mr Ludlow or Mrs Hudson-Evans, the more challenges the better)


In class we have recently been learning about mountains and mountain ranges.

Please complete lesson 2 “What are fold mountains?”. There is a quiz at the end to test your knowledge.


To practice your reading you can read either; your class book, your reading group book, reading planet or dyslexia gold/reading plus if you have access.


In computing, we are going to start coding with scratch. To really help get ready before we start in class can you look at scratch and see if you remember how to use it and if you can find the different code you may want to use. If you would like a little challenge, you could try and follow this tutorial to make your own pong game.


If you are isolating, please email or call the school and then your teacher will email you with some home learning to do. 


phone: 0121 675 1469


While you await your work from your teacher, please spend some time on the following:


Reading Planet:


The Centre ID is 199591


TT Rockstars:


Please note: This remote learning is for children who are self-isolating and unable to attend school. (For normal homework, please go back to the Year 5 home page and select the button called "Homework".)

Happy Half Term Everyone!

Week beginning 2nd November 2020

Hello lovely Year 5!

Welcome back to the new half term. Here is your learning for the week if you are isolating at home. Please remember that Monday is an INSET day, so there is no work set for Monday.

As always, please keep up with your TT Rockstars and reading at home (Reading Planet, your book corner books, your own books…just remember to read, read, read!) J Regular homework (for everyone – not just those isolating) will be set via Teams the same as last half term.





Today’s lesson is on multiples. It sounds tricky but it’s basically just your X tables!

Please watch this video:

Then have a go at completing this worksheet (don’t worry if you can’t answer every single question. Just do your best!)



Today’s lesson is on factors. It sounds tricky but it’s basically just division facts!

Please watch this video:

Then have a go at completing this worksheet (don’t worry if you can’t answer every single question. Just do your best!)



After learning about factors yesterday, it’s time to look at common factors today. That just means when 2 or more numbers share some of the same factors.

Please watch this video:

Now try and find the common factors of the following numbers:

12 and 24

15 and 30

14 and 35



Today we are continuing learning about common factors.

You may wish to re-watch yesterday’s video before completing this worksheet:




Watch the story of Romeo and Juliet. Look out for the part where Tybalt and Mercutio fight each other. Draw a picture of the fight.



Look at the vocabulary list below. Sort the words into two groups: words appropriate for a fight scene, and words not appropriate for a fight scene. 



Watch the video to remind you how to use inverted commas (speech marks). Then imagine what Mercutio and Tybalt might say to each other in a fight. Write their conversation using speech marks correctly.



Practice these spellings:

they're  their  there  two   too   to   caught court   affect    effect


Write each word in a sentence.



Please complete the worksheet below comparing modern day Stratford upon Avon with the Stratford upon Avon of Shakespeare's time. (If you can't print the worksheet don't worry - you can type your answers onto BGfL or write them on paper)
