Year 5 - Week Beginning 18.01.21

Welcome to Year 5!
Class Teacher: Mr Gallagher
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Smith
On this page, you will find some very useful information about the learning that you are expected to complete along with some helpful resources. We really hope that these are clear and easy enough for you to use but if you do have any questions at all about anything, please do not hesitate to send an email to:
Throughout our school day, we realise that there are many challenges and obstacles that the children have to overcome. With that in mind, a great way that we conquer these are by encouraging children to ROARR. This means means being ResilientOpenAspirationalReflective and Resourceful in their learning both inside and outside of school. This will make them successful in what they try to achieve so give it a go at home and please tell us if your child has ROARRed by emailing so I can celebrate this with them!
Notes about LearninPacks
The plan for your child's remote learning for the next six week is as follows:
On a Friday, a weekly pack of work will be left in the porch (near the school office) for you to collect (from 12 noon onwards). This will include:
5 English Activities
5 Reading Activities
5 Maths Activities
1 Science/Topic Activity
1 PSHE (personal, social, health education) Activity
A book will be provided so your child can record their science, topic and PSHE work. A knowledge organiser will be in this book with important facts to learn and research. We will mark this work at February half term so. You do not need to bring the science, topic and PSHE book into school on a Friday.
At the same time as collecting work, please ensure you drop off the previous week's English, Reading and Maths work. That way, we can offer feedback to your child via email. It is vitally important for your child to complete this work and receive feedback about how to improve further and maintain progress.
In addition to the weekly work packs, you will be be able to find helpful videos for the maths learning on this webpage. Furthermore, in order of helping the children complete their English learning, I have uploaded a video onto the school's YouTube channel which tells you exactly what you need to do, along with some really helpful hints and tips. The link for this can be found at the bottom of this page!
We are determined to ensure your child makes the best possible progress during this unfortunate period of school closure. Please continue to support us in making this happen.
Once again, if you have any questions about any of the learning, please send an email to
In Maths this week, the children will be looking at developing their confidence in shape and movement. With that in mind, they will be given a really helpful video that they can watch each day (the link can be found below). Furthermore, in order of them becoming really confident in their 'core skills', the children will be expected to complete another sheet each day which will be linked to the four number operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division).
If you do have any questions about the maths learning, please do not hesitate to get in touch at
