Welcome to Year 5's Home Learning Page! 

Week Beginning 01.06.20

Hello everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely week off from your home learning and are ready to face the challenges again once more this week. You are all doing really well and we are all very proud of the work you are putting in. 

I will be in touch again at some point this week so please keep an eye out for my calls (mid-week for most of you this time) so that I can speak to you all to see how it is going and how you are getting on. 

As always, if you have any problems or would like to submit work, please do not hesitate to email me.


Take care, enjoy the lovely weather and stay safe,


Miss Bingley

Hi again everyone,

Happy half term! I know it may not come with the excitement of a usual half term and it has all felt a little strange because we can't do all the lovely things we had planned BUT from what I have heard from those of you I have spoken to, you are all working really hard so you deserve a break.

Therefore, I will not be setting any home learning over the next week. However, my email inbox is still open for submissions of any work you have already done or if you would just like to share what you have planned for the holidays. If you are interested in doing some art or baking for example I'd definitely love to see some of that via email. But there will be no school work set from me other than just to make sure you are still reading to an adult at least 3 times a week over half term (use Myon- it's great!) 

Have a lovely week off and I can't wait to see you all back at school eventually (when it is safe). 

Take care,

Miss Bingley :) 

Week Beginning 18.05.20

Hi everyone,

As usual, I have planned some activities for you to have a go at this week. I received some lovely photos of your work from last week, and I know those of you who took part in the lessons really enjoyed them- which was great to hear! Again this week we will be using the Oak National Academy for English and maths but your Foundation subjects come from lots of places to try and keep things new and exciting for you. 

I will be in touch this week by phone to see how everything is going and to answer any home learning queries :) 

Take care and speak to you all soon,

Miss Bingley


Click the days of the week for the Foundation subject resources:

Monday: History: Learn about the beliefs of the Ancient Egyptians. Which Gods did they believe in?

Tuesday: Science: Learn about how animals adapt to their environment.

Wednesday: Life skills: Last week I used a YouTube video to learn how to cut hair! I performed a hair cut on my partner and I didn't do too bad a job! Lockdown has been a chance for me to learn how to do new things. I am not telling you to learn how to cut hair though don't worry parents! Today I'd like you to learn how to do some household jobs that maybe you haven't tried before. With an adults supervision, could you learn how to cook something? Clean the bathroom? Change the bedding? Hoover? Load the dishwasher? Cut the grass? Ask your parents what could you learn to do and give it a go- I'd love to hear what jobs you have been doing round the house to help. These are vital life skills! 

Thursday: Art: L.S Lowry artist study and accompanying tasks on either painting, collage or print making. 

Friday: Art: Last week lots of you sent me photos of the Minions you drew and they were amazing! Use the playlist here to select an animal you would like to draw, watch the tutorial and then please send me them. There are 107 animals to choose from! :) 

Week Beginning 11.05.20

Click the days of the week for your resources (Wednesday and Friday click the underlined words as there is more than 1 resource). Your foundation subjects for this week are:

MondayScience: Space Challenge cards: Do as many or as few as you'd like (I think numbers 2 and 5 are the most interesting and fun!) 


Tuesday: Art: This week, someone posted this photo on my social media and I thought it was fantastic! The countries on the map are represented by the animals you can find there! Could you have a go at creating a map using the types of food eaten in those countries? Or the sports played in those countries? Or even have a go at copying the animals map? Any other ideas you have for this would be great! If you are struggling to do the whole world, could you just focus on the UK? 







Wednesday: Geography: North America. This term we were supposed to have moved onto our new topic of North and South America and I am so disappointed we haven't been able to do it together as I was really looking forward to learning all this with you HOWEVER, I will do my best to help you learn a little about it anyway! Watch the PowerPoint then have a go at the Worksheet on the US States. 

Thursday: Art: Draw a Minion. Watch the super easy tutorial video then have a go at drawing your own Minion.


Friday: PSHE: Watch the PowerPoint on our school rule Respect then have a go at the Worksheet. 


Week Beginning 04.05.20

This week your foundation subject lessons are as follows, click the day of the week to access the lesson: 

Monday: Geography - Introduction to Settlements. Read the information and watch the videos. Then design your own settlement and create a leaflet to advertise it. Make your settlement appeal to a homeowner who might want to buy a house there. 

Tuesday: History - Guy Fawkes. Read the information and watch the videos. Can you research a famous person who did something that has had an impact on our traditions and the way we live today? Make a poster to inform me about what they did and who they were (E.g. Florence Nightingale, Emmeline Pankhurst, William Shakespeare)


Wednesday: DT - Cooking. Before we finished school, in Science, we looked at reversible and irreversible changes. Watch the video about chemical changes. Now I want you to cook! Cook or bake something, take me a photo then see if you can describe any of the reactions/changes you saw take place. Then enjoy your snack! :) 


Thursday:  Science - What is buoyancy? Do an investigation into floating and sinking. Fill your sink or bath and choose some items you think will float or sink. Draw up a table and remember to predict first and fill in your table with your predictions. Then do the experiment and record your findings. Were you right? What do you think impacts whether something floats or sinks? 

Friday:  Music - How does music make you feel? Music can make you feel happy and sad. Make a list of songs that you think are happy songs and then a list of songs that you think are sad songs. Then try to spot what it is about those songs that causes those feelings.
