Year 5 Home Learning Activities
Year 5 Tasks
The BBC have created some fantastic lessons full of videos, quizzes and practice activities to help you keep on track when learning at home. Pick your year and subject to get started!
The most important thing you can do with your child at home is read. Read as many books with your child as you can. Read to them, let them read to you and talk about the books you have read.
Access the websites below to see how many books you can read. Keep a list of all the books you have read. Also, don’t forget to enjoy listening to some stories online.
Increase your reading stamina and speed by accessing reading plus. Please contact school for your child's log in details.
Encourage your child to record a piece of writing using their cursive handwriting. Some examples could include:
