Year 5 2019 - 2020

Welcome to the Year 5 class page.


Hi everyone.


Whilst you are learning at home, I will upload worksheets to this class page. You can either print off the work sheets and complete them, or write the answers in your Home Learning Books.

Some of the maths worksheets will be linked to other learning on the ActiveLearn website so make sure you regularly check your account on there too.

Also, keep checking our class discussions for help, guidance or just to say hello.

When I can, I will make sure you have the worksheet and the answer sheet as well. This means you will be able to self-mark your work after you have completed it, like we do in class sometimes.

Keep working hard guys!

Victorian Prisons: Read the information and find out about what life was life inside the notorious Pentonville Prison.

Hard Labour Activities: Unfortunately for them, prisoners couldn’t move their name to red when they had done something wrong. They had to undertake some pretty awful punishments whilst they were in prison. You will need a grown up to help you with this activity.

Crime Prevention & Detection Activity: Look at the nine different squares and discuss with an adult what you have learnt.

  • Which ones are used in modern day crime prevention?

Update: Week beginning 29th June 2020



Number & Place Value: Recognising what each digit it a number represents is very important in maths. Continuing from last week’s home learning using 7-digit numbers, practice your place value knowledge with different sized numbers.

Find the Number and Place Value Workbook in the ‘Files to Download’. You can either print the booklet or answer the questions in your Home Learning books. Once you have finished the workbook, download the answers and mark your work.

Times Table Rock Stars: Log in to TTRS Daily and practice the times tables that have been allocated to you.



Adverbials for Linking Sentences and Paragraphs: We have used adverbials a lot in our writing. They give the reader more information about the verb (doing word), adjective (describing work) or clause (main focus) in a sentences. If we take adverbials out of our sentences, then will still make sense. By using adverbials in our writing, we can link ideas across paragraphs. This makes our writing flow better and is called cohesion.

Find the Adverbials for Linking Sentences and Paragraphs Workbook in the ‘Files to Download’. You can either print the booklet or answer the questions in your Home Learning books. There is an Adverbials Word Map to download as well which provides extra examples.

Note to grown-ups: Please turn to Page 12 in the booklet for guidance. Answers to all of the questions can be found on Page 13 onwards.



The Story of Jochebed: Jochebed was the mother of Moses. She did something at the very beginning of Moses’ life that changed his future forever.

Read the story of Jochebed and watch the YouTube clip, then answer the questions in your Home Learning book.


History: Crime & Punishment part 4

The next part of our fascinating history topic, looks at the life of John Palmer, who was better known as Dick Turpin – one of the most notorious criminals ever in British history. But why do some people say he was a hero?

The Highway Man: Hero or Villain?: Read the information and find out about the life of Dick Turpin.

Who was Dick Turpin?: Use the information you have read to answer the questions.

Dick Turpin – Hero or Villain: Look at the different source and record your findings in the table. Do the sources agree on what type of person Dick Turpin was?



Isaac Newton: Following on from last week’s Science revision on forces, read about the life of Isaac Newton and his theory on the most powerful force of all – gravity. Answer the questions in your home learning book.

Wildlife Colouring: Lots of you have spent time in your gardens during the hot weather over the last few weeks looking at some of the wildlife we are lucky to have around us.

Mr Wade’s stepsister Sarah is a Scientific and Natural History Illustrator as some of you already know and she has produced some mindfulness colouring sheets for you to have a go at.

There are 13 native wildlife sheets, which are of animals you might see in and around your garden. They show you which colours to use but you can always get creative and use whatever colours you like.

There are also 3 sheets of wild animals, including an under the ocean one. Have a go and have fun!

All of the drawings are in a zip file in the ‘Files to Download’ and can be opened in Microsoft Paint if you are unable to print them.



Stay safe everyone!
