Home Learning for 1st - 5th February

Please see below for a daily timetable supporting you and your child to continue to access the curriculum at home. Please refer to the blended learning homepage for the principles and advice guiding our home learning offer. We endeavour to provide links that are accessible via  a mobile phone and the learning can then be recorded on paper if appropriate. This can be shared via Class Dojo to enable your child's class teacher to provide feedback and guide you and your child on the next steps in their learning. 


There will be supplementary videos posted by class teachers on Class Dojo and remember to tune in for your stories. :)

Friday Resources


Friday 5th February












WALT: Use compound adjectives within a character description


Watch this clip to remind you about prepositions:


Watch the clip of Mrs Dickinson explaining today’s learning:







Independent activities


Use the preposition bank in the resources section to write a paragraph describing your alien.  Remember to write in full sentences and use the exciting words you found yesterday in a thesaurus.


Describe its appearance, how it moves and how it speaks (or the sounds it makes).


Try to vary your openers and if you can include them, a few relative clauses would be brilliant! 😊


Try and post the learning during the lesson if you can, so we can give feedback and support.

Remember to send a message on your portfolio if you need any help. =)













WALT: solve arithmetic questions.







Independent activities

Today, can you please complete the arithmetic paper in the resources section.


Remember to have a go at every question, but if are really stuck - skip that question and come back to it later. Make sure you show all of your working out in the space provided.


The answers are at the back of the paper.  Once you have finished, mark your paper.  Can you see where you went wrong on any of the questions?


If you need some more support, a video will be uploaded onto Dojo to help you with some of the question types.


Try and post the learning during the lesson if you can, so we can give feedback and support.

Remember to send a message on your portfolio if you need any help. =)



You can follow the link below to watch a reading of ‘Aliens Love Underpants’. 

AR Quiz No: 216767 BL 2.9 


Look out on Dojo for one of the Year 5 teachers reading a chapter of our class book every day.











WALT:   to improve their mastery of art and design techniques including sculpture with a range of materials






Independent activities

This week you have designed an alien and written a description about it, now it’s time to make it!


If you have modelling clay at home, then you can start to make your alien.  If not, see the Clay Aliens PDF in the resource section for the recipe on how to make salt dough, which you can then model into your alien.  There are other ideas on how to decorate your alien on the PDF.


We are looking forward to seeing your finished creations on Dojo.

Remember to send a message on your portfolio if you need any help. =)

Please see below for additional 10 minute activities that we complete during the school day.

Word of the day 


 Sick sentence: 


Here is yesterday’s sick sentence written correctly:

Correct the following sentence.

Here are the new spellings for next week: 


field          shield         belief 

relief         mischief          niece

Investigate the new spelling pattern.  Can you find any other words that would fit? Look in your reading book to see if you can find any of your spellings.  


Use Lego bricks (or something similar) to make each letter for your spellings.  


Look out for a video on Monday with Mrs White explaining the spelling rule further.
