This link is for those of you who like to have a go at those challenging puzzles and problems in maths.


Reading is really important so make sure you fit some in every day! Books, magazines, web pages are equally great. You could email us a quick review of any books you have read. We will post the best ones on Amazon.


ReadTheory is an excellent website for improving reading comprehension.  Use this email: to join our class.


Spelling Shed will continue to have the Year 5 spelling patterns assigned each week but don't forget you should keep practising words from the Year 3/4 and Year 5/6 general lists.

This is a free database of books to read online.  Being free, some of the books are more old fashioned, but there are some interesting reads.  Please be aware that there are books for ages from 3 to 13, so some of the content may not be appropriate for younger children.  There are also books written in different languages.


These activities can be done at home with an adult over the course of a couple of weeks. You may not have 50g weights, but a lump of blu-tack or similar attached to the bottom of your parachute will work just as well- just remember to keep that test fair by using the same sized lump on each parachute!!

Send us a photo of you having a go at these activities!

The downloads below are all available for you to use as you choose. Everything is specifically designed for Year 5 so will be perfect for consolidating your learning or for those of you who enjoy extra school-based tasks!
