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!

Mrs McGrath and Mrs Dearden miss you all. We are used to seeing you every day and you are like our family. Remember all that work on letter writing we did before we had to close the school? It’s time to put it into practise! Over the next few weeks, write  Mrs McGrath or Mrs Dearden a letter, telling them what you are up to. Send them via Class Dojo. We will reply to you all. 
Stay safe!❤️

And the Winner of our Times Table challenge is...


Well done to all who took part. 5HW managed to win with 2448 compared to 5SM's 2218. It was a closely fought battle so well done all. 

Next week, it's Year 5 vs Mrs Dearden and Mrs McGrath! Can you beat the teacher?

Home Learning

A home learning task sheet will be posted daily in the section below. This will contain specific Maths, English and a foundation subject related work to be completed on that day.  Answer sheets will be posted at the end of the school day (3pm/3:30pm). 

(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, and Times Table Rock Stars will be changed each Friday

The weekly task has been set on and is ready for you all to do. Please have a crack at it. Don't worry parents - the program marks for you. We look forward to seeing your scores. Go Year 5! 

Home learning work: Monday 23rd March - Friday 27th March
