Year 5 Home Learning W.B 15.6.2020

Hello Year 5! Looks like you all completed some great home learning and fun activities last week. Keep up the fantastic work!

For this week’s home learning, in addition to the usual Maths and English, there is also some Science, Computing, Topic and a Music / Art activity . We hope you enjoy these activities this week and remember to show us what you’ve been up to on Seesaw! We really do love receiving your messages and videos.

There is an exciting update on the North Yorkshire School Games, and the chance to take part in a virtual athletics competition! It’s important to stay active (even if it’s raining!), so scroll down to the bottom of the page to find the documents for entering the Virtual School Games. Do well enough, and you might be put forward to be a County winner! Photos of you taking part can also be posted on Seesaw.

Don’t forget you can also take part in the PE challenges on the North Yorkshire Sport Virtual Challenge page of our website, which you can find here: This week is the last chance to enter the Medley Challenge!

A message to Parents/Carers: Whilst there are a range of activities available here for your child, please note that there is no expectation for them all to be completed. We encourage the children to do as much as they can, but we also recognise the challenges that come with home learning and appreciate that children are following their own interests during this time, which is also great to see!





For Computing this week, there are 2 different tasks – you might like to try both or just one, depending on your confidence with the subject. The first task (Going wild) is linked to the science work on pollination and you will learn to create a short algorithm to program a bee to find a flower. The second task (Shapes and Crystal flowers) involves you using repetition in programs to create your own flower patterns.


We want you to find out all about Brazil for this week’s Topic lesson. There is a Travel Workbook to complete, which will focus on Brazilian geography, some history and other areas to help you learn more and ‘find the code’. Having done that, you should then attempt to complete the Brazil fact sheet, which will involve you doing a small amount of research.


Here is an opportunity to get involved in a local music project – with a chance to feature in a music video by York Youth Orchestra! Learn about a famous piece, and create an artistic response.
