Year 5 home learning


Here are some of the excellent home learning activities that the year 5 team have been doing! Please continue to send us your amazing photos and videos and remember to check the 'Home Learning' page for daily challenges! 


Maths with Gareth Metcalfe


Each day, I have posted a new video lesson for Y5/6 children (all Y5/6 lessons here). Each video explores a big mathematical idea in small, easy-to-follow steps and a range of independent tasks are set for children to complete. A new lesson is posted at 9am every day. Everything is free. 

Here’s the outline plan for the rest of the school year. I will continue making the videos for the duration of the UK school closures (however long that lasts):
20th – 24th April: Reasoning with Shapes
27th April – 15th May: Reasoning in Multiplication and Division
18th – 22nd May: Measures: Money and Time
1st June – 5th June: Data Handing
8th June – 19th June: Fractions
22nd June – 3rd July: Flexible Calculation
6th July – 17th July: Mathematical Puzzles
