Year 5 Summer home learning

Year 5 Groundbreaking Greeks knowledge-organiser



Daily tasks:

To continue to develop your child’s literacy and comprehension skills, we expect them to read at home every day for a minimum of 10 minutes. Children should read aloud to a parent or carer who can then sign their daily reading records. Children cannot sign the reading records themselves. We would suggest hearing your children read 1-2 pages each day of their reading book, before letting them continue reading independently. We also aim to hear every child read aloud at least once a week in class, either through whole class guided reading or on a 1:1 basis during daily quiet reading time.

Children are also expected to spend at least 10 minutes a day on Times Table Rockstars to increase their knowledge of multiplication and division facts.


Year 5 have PE on Thursdays with external sports coaches. Children should come to school dressed in PE kits on these days each week. Please consider clothing choices as the weather changes too.

Children should keep a pair of trainers in school at all times too – these will be used for other activities such as the daily mile.


Forest School

Year 5 will have Forest school on Thursday and Friday The class will be split into 2 groups and the details of your child’s session dates will be  available on their Google classroom. Please refer to this for days that require extra kits. On their allocated Forest school days, children can arrive at school in their kit with their waterproofs and wellies/boots in a separate bag.
