Welcome to The Year 5 Home Learning Page!

Week beginning July 6th, 2020:

Hi Year 5,

Last week, in our bubble, we carried on reading the book, "The Boy at the Back of the Class" by Onjali Rauf. We've now read up to chapter 7 and we are learning more about the main characters.  We have just been introduced to Ms Hemsi and Ahmet has just spoken to the children for the first time.   If you are reading along, here are some Vipers questions on chapters 2 to 6:

V (vocabulary): What does ‘forty winks’ generally mean? (ch3)

I (inference): Why do you think Uncle Lenny didn’t let Mum sell the record player? (ch5)

P (predict): Predict what Brendan the Bully will do. (ch6)

E (Explain): Explain why Ahmet has not been speaking to the children. (ch4)

R (retrieval): What two jobs does Mum have? (ch5)

S (summarise): Summarise the events of chapter 6 in fewer than thirty words.

Linking to the book, we were also thinking about journeys in our bubble.  We looked at the work of Paul Klee who said, “A line is a dot that went for a walk.”

We made our own line drawings.  Here are some examples.  Maybe you would like to try one of your own?



Here is a link to a you tube tutorial that explains the process we worked through: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kPu7ndVZEo

As always, we would love to see examples of your work.

We are currently putting the finishing touches to your reports.  Thank you to everybody who has sent a photograph through to us already.  If you haven't yet sent one, if you could send one through before the end of the week, we would be really grateful.

Tasks this week:

  • Purple Mash
  • White Rose Maths
  • Science - a new topic, 'Living things and their habitats'

Why not also have a look at Pobble 365 for some further writing ideas?  BBC Bitesize is another online resource that we think is great and we know that many of you are using already.  There are not only Maths and English lessons here but lots of other subjects too.

Have you seen that our winning report for Sustrans has now been put on our website? Please have a look and show your families.  We are very proud of your work!  Your families should have now received a link to a survey where they can give their thoughts, ideas and opinions on the proposals.  We would encourage as many families as possible to reply so that your voices are heard!  There are also some great resources produced by Sustrans called 'Outside In' which provide lots of fun education, health and wellbeing activities.  Here is the link: https://www.sustrans.org.uk/campaigns/outside-in/  if you want to explore further.

Don't forget, you can contact us at our year 5 email address:


We would love to see examples of the work you have been doing whether it be academic lessons or learning valuable life skills. 

Have a great week everyone! 

Take care of yourselves and each other.

Mrs Bailey and Mrs Railton
