Unfortunately, due to confirmed Covid-19 cases, Year 5 are currently learning at home. Please see below for their daily learning. As we know families have different routines, time constraints, job expectations, not to mention demands on devices, so we are not setting a strict timetable: we are happy for your child to complete the learning at times that suit you and them.

If you have any problems accessing any of the learning or would prefer paper-based resources, please contact school and we will sort them for you.

We have an exciting term ahead for us including learning all about The Ruthless Romans and many exciting things in Maths! 

Please remember to keep reading three times a week and update your brand new home-learning diary. Remember, it can be as colourful and as unique as you like! Please remember to complete your CGP homework books weekly and remember to bring them back into school on Thursday. Keep practising your spellings each week ready for your dictation on a Friday.

Don't forget your PE kit every Wednesday and Thursday and make sure you have the right clothes for outdoor PE - especially over Winter! 


This term we will be learning about The Ruthless Romans and what made them powerful. We will learn all about the Roman Army and what the Romans have done for us.
