Welcome to our Year 5 and 6 page. In the dropdown menus below, you will find links and resources for this week’s home learning, as well as the previous week’s if you still need it.

Click on the below document, which gives a description of each of the different tasks for each subject and their expectations.

Year 5.6 – Home Learning – Week Beginning 25.1.21

As is the case when the children are in school, we would expect that they regularly use the online resources we have available:

Spelling Shed and Maths Shed

– Times Table Rock Stars

SATs Boot Camp

The children should know their logins for these websites as they have been used regularly for homework. Try to make these part of your child’s daily schedule.

Class emails for Year 5 and 6 are:

In addition, you will have received a ParentMail regarding Accelerated Reader. We would love the children to continue reading books at home and then take the associated quiz on Accelerated Reader from home. Quizzes can be taken here. Please don’t worry at this point about the book level.
