Excellence for All in Every Way

Home Learning (Temporary)



This will be our online learning zone should we need to be off school for a little while.

I will continue to post useful and interesting links when I come across them. 

The following are ongoing tasks that can be done as and when:



Times Table Practice (Times Table Rockstars)

Spelling Practice (Spelling Shed or 'speedy spellings' lists)


On this page, I will post a series of home learning tasks which you may like to engage in with your child. I understand that given the current situation, these may not always be possible. I aim to post work both on this page, as well as on 'Google Classroom'. The work will aim to allow the children to keep on practising skills they have learnt so far in Year 5, as well as give further learning opportunities for curriculum areas that we were due to cover during this period of time away from school. I will aim to give a variety of daily Maths and English tasks, as well as topic based learning tasks.

Look after yourselves and each other.
