Year 5 - Emus

Here are digital copies of the home learning pack sent home and a list of useful websites to help with home learning

Welcome to Year 5 - Emus!

Welcome to Year 5!


Thanks you for visiting our webpage, we hope you find it informative. In Year 5, we have chosen some great topics to cover throughout the year.


We expect children to read daily at home and have a large number of exciting books to choose from in our class book corner and through our reading scheme.


As you are now learning from home, it is essential that you maintain the amazing level of focus you had in school! As you can see, I am still setting you daily work and the expectation is that these should be completed to a high standard. I hope you enjoy the range of fun activities I have prepared for you! Have fun! 


I also want to add a HUGE thank you to all of you! You have been doing amazingly well and I am so proud of each and every one of you! Every time I get an email or a piece of work from you, it puts a big smile on my face! 

I also want to add a big thank you to parents, because you have been working extremely hard too! You are all amazing!

DADWAVERS writing explained

Extra Home Learning Activities 


As our Science topic is Living things and their habitats, please create a piece of Art that shows your favourite animal in it's natural habitat. 


 As our topic is Vikings and Anglo-Saxons, write a diary entry from the point-of-view of your favourite Norse god/goddess. 

Have a look at the times tables songs on YouTube. Can you write your own song to practice the times tables to the tune of your favourite song?


Write a poem about Spring. This can be an acrostic, rhyming or free verse poem. If you want a challenge, follow the ABAB rhyme scheme that we used in class! If possible, record yourself reading your poem aloud. Can you add more expression? Are you reading fluently? Practice and record yourself again. Can you hear the improvements? 


Write a book review for your favourite book that you have at home. Remember to give it a star rating! 


Write 5 multi-step word problems. One each for addition, subtraction, division, multiplication and fractions.

eg. If a shop has 316 dresses in stock on Monday, sells half on Tuesday and 23 on Wednesday, how many do they have left?


Read a chapter of your book. Think about what has just happened, make predictions about what will happen then write the next chapter for yourself. Be creative! Think about using DADWAVERS (try to remember what each letter stands for and explain it to the people at home!) 


You will have daily Serial Mash chapters to read and a daily quiz for each chapter. You must complete these every day if you have access to PurpleMash. You will find these in your ToDos. Every week we will start a new story (where possible).
