Week 5 (11th May)

Hello Year 5,

We hope you have/had a good bank holiday weekend and are staying safe! We still miss you very much! 

Below is the work for week 5!

We are still really enjoying seeing your work come in, so remember to send your favourite piece of work or the piece of work that you are most proud of to:

Remember to keep doing your reading reflections and reading tasks on Reading Plus/ Reading Owls and also to keep practising your times tables using TT Rockstars as well.  When you use Reading Plus, there is a online message system in which you can talk to your teachers. We would love it if you could chat to us, as we are desperate to know how you are all doing!

If you have a login for Doodle Maths, please remember to use that daily, it will help you keep your skills up to date!

We are now only uploading prior learning through maths and literacy and we encourage the children to work independently through these tasks.

We have uploaded the Maths and Literacy in both PDF and WORD format to make completing the work easier for you. The PDF format is printer friendly and for those of you who don't have a printer, the Word worksheets are fully editable.


There are 3 main tasks for maths this week. This week we are focusing on negative numbers!

Task 1 is a powerpoint which recaps on the main objective that the children will be revising. There are questions at the end of the powerpoint for the children to answer linked to the main objective. 

Task 2 is a series of practice style questions that the children can try and answer independently.

Task 3 focuses on more reasoning and explaining linked to the maths they have been practising. There is also a challenge question which the children can have a go at too.

There are also 5-a-day worksheets, which we encourage the children to complete daily.

Answers to all of the Maths can be found at the end of the document. 


The literacy work follows a similar format to the maths this week.

Lesson 1 recaps the skill that the children will be revising.

Lesson 2 allows children to practise and develop the skill.

Lesson 3 focuses on applying the skill to their writing.

There are also 5-a-day worksheets, which we encourage the children to complete daily.

Answers to the Literacy 5-a-day questions and Task 2 can be found at the end of the document.


This week's tasks have been uploaded for the children to continue practising the rule 'i before e except after c'


Yellow Group:

You only need to complete these tasks if you are in Yellow Group. These children have been sent a separate MarvellousME to instruct them to complete this work. These worksheets are also uploaded in both PDF and Microsoft Word format and the answers to these questions can also be found at the end of the document.
