Year 5

St Mary's Virtual Sports Day


The St Mary's virtual sports day will run from Monday 13th July - Wednesday 15th July. There are 6 challenges for the children to complete and they can win a Gold (10 points), Silver (5 points) or Bronze (3 points) award for each activity. Once your child has completed the activities, the results need to be sent to me on by Thursday 16th. I will then announce the house champions on Friday 17th. 


Please see the event guidance in the PDF document below which provides more information. 

Week commencing 13th July. 


Hello Year 5 !


An example of a home learning daily timetable:


9.00-9:30 - Get active! The Body Coach is providing free fitness content on his YouTube channel every weekday morning for children of all ages. We have also been provided with a login and password to RealPE at home which includes a variety of activities that children can take part in:

Parent email:
Password: stmarysrcp

You may have also noticed that I have posted the details for the Robbie Hawkes YouTube TV on the blog. They have created some coaching videos on football skills which can be seen on their YouTube page. 

9:30-9:45 - TT Rock Stars.

I will update the class via the class blog on Friday with our top 10 and our average time spent on TTRS over the 7 days. 

Please can you all go on SOUNDCHECK this week – we need to aim for an average score of 22/25. Well done to all of those who have already reached an average score of 25/25!

9:45-10.30 - Maths.

For maths I have included the video links, worksheets and answers for the White Rose home-learning scheme. This means that you no longer need to visit the website. You should now be moving on to Summer Term Week 12. Some of you have found it easier to print on the booklet and then complete it that way. You can also complete the booklet on your tablet. The instructions on how to do this are in the White Rose star.

I have also added another week to the ‘daily arithmetic star. I will continue updating this weekly. There are only 5 questions for each day and the answers are provided in a separate document. I have also included the full years’ worth of Twinkl arithmetic quizzes. On a Thursday in class we would focus on arithmetic. This would include completing the paper and also going through and modelling the answers together. I would recommend doing one of these every Friday. I would love to know your score too!!! Please email your score to me weekly. Please provided me with the text number, the score and also anything you struggled with so that I can upload any relevant work to help you.  

I have also left the link for Corbett Maths which can be completed daily. 

There are also some problem solving activities and links to games to help reinforce their learning. 


10.45-11.10 - Handwriting, spellings and Spelling Shed. 

I will update the class via the class blog every Thursday in regards to Spelling Shed. Remember, the expectation is for you to go on it 4 days out of the 7. 

Each week I will be setting new spellings. These will be on Spelling Shed and also in the 'Spelling' star in the English section. Just like we would do in class, please make sure that you use this time to also practice your handwriting. 

I will also create a class league for the weekly spellings – I will update you on the progress of this throughout the week. 

11.10-12.00 - Writing activity – this week our focus in on Year 5 memories! Please complete the booklet and send it to me so that I can create a Year 5 memories book!

Don't forget there is also the 'Story Starter' star - these are there as an extra activity which can be used if the weekly activities set have been finished. 

Remember, there are also the Grammar Hammer and Vocab Ninja activities available. 

I have also been adding reading comprehensions into the ‘Reading’ star weekly. Please try to complete at least one of these each week.



There are a variety of options that you can choose for your afternoon activity:

  • In the afternoon activities star you will notice there is a new project which gives you the opportunity to capture the unique situation we are currently living in. This is a whole school activity and is called Time Capsule.
  • Choose one of the 15 activities to do at home which you have not yet done. 
  • Please continue to read books from home and school. I would love to hear about the books that you are all reading and as a class we are brilliant at recommending books to our friends. Let's continue doing this. Remember, we have the blog as a way of communicating as a class. I will keep posting on this so please feel free to comment and update me on your learning. 
  • It is very important to help to support your local community at this time, write a letter or draw a picture to someone in self-isolation, video-call or telephone anyone who is on their own.
  • I will continue to upload some of the daily lessons from the BBC Bitesize website (Afternoon Activities) which are relevant to our previous learning in the Learning Challenge Curriculum. This will be a great way to recap on their learning of history, science and geography. I have also included some lessons which will act as pre-learning for their learning next year. 
  • You should all have received an email from school in regards to your Active Learn login details. The website includes lots of reading resources which I will be able to monitor. The link is included in the 'Afternoon Activities' star. When you are reading one of the books on the site, there are multiple questions that you will be able to answer. This will help improve our comprehension skills. Please provide me with as much feedback as you can on this site as it is one that we are trialling.
