Welcome to the Spring term, year 5!


We are sorry not to be in school with you, but we will carry on learning together online. Every week, we will upload work for you to complete. Once you have completed the work each day, send a photo of it via the Y5 email address and we will mark your work. Don't forget, if you are struggling with the work, you can use the Y5 email address to ask any questions you may have.


Please stay in touch with us through the Y5 email address. Someone from the Y5 team will be ringing you every week to see how your learning is getting on. 


Don't forget to keep reading and practising your spellings!


We are missing you and looking forward to the time when we can be together again.


From Miss Hunt, Mrs Hadley, Mrs Crawford, Miss Wright and Mrs McCann

Written Calculation Methods for Year 5

We have made a series of four videos for each of the four operations to show the written methods that our children in Year 5 are currently using to add, subtract, multiply and divide.

Please click on the links below to view these.

All children from Reception to Year 6 have their own log on for Numbots and Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS). This is in their Reading Record.

TTRS is ideal for children in Year 5 to be using although they will still benefit from using Numbots too. On TTRS, they work on their multiplication and division facts. Children in Year 5 should know all of their times tables and related division facts and should be able to use them to apply to problems and other contexts.

There are lots of other games and activities that will help with your learning in Year 5. Look particularly for activities that help develop:

- Times tables and related division facts up to 12 x 12

- Quick mental calculations using the four operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division)

- Multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000

- Converting units of measure (e.g. 5.6m = 560cm)


This half term we will be learning about South America. Follow the links below to find out more.
