Year 5 Home Learning

Here is a great resource to let you get out and about, across the world whilst sitting in your own home. Visit and learn about somewhere new each day. Have fun! 

RE Home Learning

Below is an Easter project you could complete over the next few weeks. You will need to look at the first 4 downloads to complete the project. The final document has different ideas that can be completed around our work leading up to Easter.

Spanish Home Learning

Please find below 2 PowerPoints which the children can use to practise using the Spanish alphabet to spell names. You need to open the PowerPoints and play them as slideshow which will enable you to play the videos and soundbites to help with pronunciation. Also please find attached a link for a good website which can be used to support learning of foreign languages (this is also available as an app).

Music: some excellent songs!
