Year 5 Class Page
Welcome to the class page for 5SM and 5HW.
Here, you will find information regarding useful websites and anything else that we feel will be helpful during this difficult time.
Websites and ideas will be addressed to the children, and are set out under each subject area for easy access.
A home task sheet will be set each day: check this web page daily for updates.
We miss you!
We hope that you all had a fun Half Term. Remember, we are missing you all. We love seeing the photos of you completing your class tasks, and even just chilling at home. Keep them coming!
A home learning task sheet will be posted daily in the section below. This will contain specific Maths and English work to be completed on that day. Also, each week, Foundation subjects and Science will be available.
(Can children please use their jotters or exercise books of their own to record all of their tasks. This will ensure that they see the importance of the work they are completing.)
We have also attached a timetable, which roughly represents a typical school day. This is to help with structure as much as possible - we want to try to make home learning as 'normal' and accessible as we can.
Spelling Shed,Spag.com and Times Table Rock Stars will be changed each Friday

Our topic this half term is
Were the Saxon's really Savage?
Here are some links with information about the Saxons.
At this point in the year, our topic would have been the Anglo-Saxons and their impact on Great Britain. For topic this week, see if you can carry out some research on these people and find out the answers to these questions;
When did the Anglo-Saxons invade Great Britain?
Where did they come from?
How did they get here?
Why did they invade?
Try and create a timeline of the key events leading up to and during their invasion.
The early Anglo-Saxons had a special alphabet called 'Furthoc'. Furthoc was a collection of symbols, used to communicate and record. also called 'Runes', these symbols were later used, on stones and talismans, to protect the Anglo-Saxons. Do some research, on Rune and Furthoc symbols, and familiarise yourself with the symbols. Have a go at writing your name in Furthoc, or write some secret messages for your family - or even for us. May'be you could collect some stones, on one of your 'safe' walks, and create some rune stones. Whatever you do, have fun!
