Create some book reviews about these books, which can be shared with others at school.

Storyline Online also have a bank of stories.

Accelerated reader online for quizzes - find the link on year 5 cover letter.


Sumdog – explore and learn by playing games.

Watch YouTube times tables songs – Numberock ones are particularly good.

Children in Year 5 have six different maths areas that have been sent home in their packs, with a variety of activities. 

These are links which will support all areas of their current learning. For example, Top Marks has lots of interactive games. And white rose maths which is where we get many of our teaching resources


We have sent home the year 3/4 and the year 5/6 spelling lists for your child to practice. They can use their spelling activities to learn these words such as look, cover, write, check.

We have sent home Six writing activities which will allow your child to practice areas that have already been taught. For example writing a set of instructions.

Make a poster explaining how our school values are linked to improving the planet. 


Play board games which include money-such as monopoly.

Traditional games such as snakes and ladders, noughts and crosses.

Word based board games such as Boggle, Scrabble, Hangman.

Children are encouraged to be creative whilst at home. They could share baking activities with parents, junk modelling, art from recycled products, collages.

Write and illustrate story books for themselves, or for younger children.
