Below you will find links to various educational platforms to support home-learning (in the case that you have to self-isolate due to COVID).
Your child's Microsoft Teams login and password is in the front of their Homework Diary. We will be using Teams if our bubble closes so we would like parents to help their child to log on and access learning. See home-learning plan. Please see Teams guide documents to familiarise yourselves with the platform.
Children now also have logins for Spelling Shed and TT Rockstars - in the Homework Diary.
Your child will have a login for this website which will be in their Homework Diary.
Children can play spelling games, based on the Year 5 spelling objectives (Stage 5 on Spelling shed).
You will have your home reading book to practise. Please read as often as possible.
Please use the PDF below to help support your child's reading comprehension at home. On the PDF are examples of the sorts of questions we would ask the children to answer during Guided Reading in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. You could perhaps use the question starters to support your child's understanding whilst reading at home.
The Oxford Owl website in the link above, provides some handy tips for how to support the development and joy of reading at home, as well as explain the Year 5 objectives.
It also contains a link for a free e-learning library if you require further reading resources. (https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/for-home/find-a-book/library-page/)
We use our own weekly plans for Maths but supplement with White Rose and Classroom secrets.
Here is the link to the White Rose Maths home-learning. Your child's teacher will let you know which week we are working on.
In Year 5, the children are required to know all of the times tables off by heart. They need to have a ‘quick’ recall of these number facts. We therefore recommend for each student to use TTRockstars to improve their recall time.
This website has lots of number games for the children to play on:
