Year 5 and 6 Off Site Learning

Below, you will find details of the home learning provision for Year 5&6.

To provide some guidance and structure for how to spend your learning time, a suggested timetable will be uploaded each week (and can be found at the top of the attachments section at the bottom of this page). Note - this is only a recommendation and not a reflection of what your teacher expects you to get done. It is important that you learn at a pace that is appropriate for you (to avoid rushing through work that you may need to focus on for longer if you require more time or practice).

Spelling:

Play spelling shed using the newly set revision and challenge lists for both Year 5 and 6.

Grammar:

Work through the packs, checking your answers, after completing each section. If unsure where you have gone wrong, try the BBC bitesize revision website at the bottom of this page, or contact your class teacher for support.

Reading:

Use the pack to complete a range of short reading comprehension activities. After every four shorter comprehensions, try to include a longer response question for variety.

As always, children should aim to read for at least 20 minutes at home each day. This is an essential use of time that impacts and improves all other areas of their learning.

You can use  https://www.arbookfind.co.uk/ to see whether you have any books at home that have Accelerated Reader quizzes available. 

Children can take quizzes after they have read their book by logging on here

Writing:

Use the pack of prompts to plan, draft and edit some wonderful pieces of writing. Remember, this is also your daily handwriting practice, so please use your best presentation.

Maths:

Times Table Rock Stars can be accessed by both years to practise key multiplication and division facts.

Year 5

Complete the problem-solving packs focussed on Place Value, Addition & Subtraction, and Multiplication & Division.

Work through any set work in Mathletics (or explore the units independently).

Year 6

Create a revision guide using the information in the included Knowledge Organisers. As you complete your revision guide, go on to Mathletics and complete the matching activity. (All the curriculum has been made available for Year 6s.)

Science:

Use some of your topic time to complete the range of practical activities based on our recent study of ‘Light’.

Topic:

We have had many children who have not completed a Home Learning Project on the Maya this term, so would suggest that pupils use this additional time to do so. Of course, even those that have completed a piece are welcome to produce another!

Some of the topics that have arisen during our study of the Maya have really sparked pupils’ imaginations, but unfortunately, we do not have the scope to focus on these areas in detail during school. Therefore, any projects or work based on the following ideas would be warmly received upon our return to school.

  • The Ball Game: How was it played? What were the rules? What happened to the winners and losers? What did the players have to wear? What was the court or pitch like?
  • Why did the Spanish invade during the 16th century and what happened? Was the war fair? Did both sides use similar weapons and tactics?
  • Did the Maya really sacrifice humans? Why did they do this and what did they think it achieved?
  • The Maya constantly warred against each other – what were some of the famous battles? What were some of the greatest leaders or generals?
  • What did the Maya believe? What were their gods and the myths around them? What was the role of the priest and what did the temples look like?

Please note that pupils can use their personal log-in details to access PurpleMash.co.uk, where there are a variety of different software and tools they can use to produce work.
