Year 5

School Work for Year 5 during the School Closure

Although our school building is closed due to the corona virus outbreak, we are still here to help and support you all.  We will email work out to you via your parent or carer's email and also show it here with the most recent tasks and suggestions first.  We hope that everyone will at least try to keep up with their maths learning on Doodlemaths and enjoy reading lots of stories but do also take time to play and have fun. 



Please see a list of suggested websites for you and your child to work on.

Don't feel you have to do it all!! We would far rather you and your child had a look through for things that appeal. Think of it as a pick 'n' mix.

Keep up the Doodlemaths and reading, but also make time for lots of play, relaxation and experimentation.
