Year 5

Class Teacher: Mrs Brumby

Welcome to Squirrel Class!


I hope you are all keeping well whilst being at home. Please remember to continue using the online learning platforms set up using the below links. It is great to see so many of you using them for your learning where available.

Google Classroom:

Seneca Learning: https://

Diagnostic Questions:

The children will have their own log in details for Google Classroom and Seneca learning, which were given at school and were detailed in the letter sent home.

The children's work for the coming weeks will be placed on these platforms so please do let me know if you cannot access these platforms at home and the work can be emailed out instead.

I have also attached the current Year 5 class pack to this page so that this can be viewed or printed at home. Children can use the exercise books provided to showcase their work for this. I will also be updating the website for the current term Topic themes should the children wish to do any further research.

(New weekly work packs will be put on this page under Summer Term below). 


The most important thing your child can continue to do whilst being at home is read, practise times tables and spellings given. This can be done on the online platforms or at home without the aid of a computer. I will continue to send out resources and work over the coming weeks.


We know that this is a difficult time for so many people and that the work being supplied through these platforms may at times feel overwhelming. The work offered is not meant to be and is just us providing lots of work for the children to support learning whilst away from school. Please do not worry about the amount being sent home and only do what you and the children can around your daily routines. As a school we are here to support you and the children and their continued learning at home, so please do not hesitate to get in touch. Please email the school office or myself directly via the email address sent to you all in an email to ask any questions you may have and stay in touch.


Missing you all and hope you all stay safe and well,


Mrs Brumby


Here you can find support materials and resources for home learning.

Term 3: Peasants, Princes and Pestilence


This term we will learn about how the 14th Century was a difficult time for the people of England. We will learn about the battles that were fought; the cold climate which lead to a famine and the Black Death which spread far and wide across Europe killing millions of people. 

Term 4: Tudors


This term the children will begin their topic by recreating the Battle of Bosworth which marked the dawn of the Tudor reign. They will learn about the events of that day and then recreate it on the school playground.


During our topic, we will also visit the Tower of London to see first hand the home of the Tudor Kings and Queens and learn about Tudor crime and punishment. Please read our parent information for further information about our learning this term. 

Summer Term: Time Traveller and Pharaohs

As the Summer Term has started a little differently this year, this section will include the children's weekly learning packs to be completed. We will be continuing to use the Online platforms mentioned above, as well as the work included in the packs. 

Work within these packs will be centred around the things included in the curriculum letter attached. 




Please make sure that you have your PE kits in school all week however PE lessons will be on a Monday and Thursday afternoon. Please be prepared for both indoor and outdoor PE. Make sure you have warm clothing for PE as we will be going outside this term and the weather might get colder.



Each week you will be expected to: read at least 4 times a week, practice your timestables (this can be done online) and to learn your spellings for your spelling test every other week (the words are available in the link below).
