Marvellous Music w/c 21st June 2020

Hello Year 5!

On this page, you will find ideas for things you can do at home. 

This page is very much a work in progress and will be updated weekly.

Please keep in contact via Class Dojo. You can message me (Miss Newton) directly, see regular updates on the class story, post likes, comments and view pictures and videos. You can also send me examples of things you have done and I can upload these to the website with your permission.

Most importantly of all, please stay safe.

29.6.2020 Update: see below for additional maths activities on addition and subtraction,  English Greek Myth activities Science various investigations to have a go at, don't forget to look at the History units at the bottom of the page on The Ancient Greeks and the Olympics.

BBC daily lessons - starting 20th April. They cover 3 lessons a day: Maths, English + one other. Please note, history and geography content will not be the same as what we would be studying normally. Schools choose which topics they cover in which year. The BBC have chosen Ancient Egypt for example. Do this if you wish to. Other history resources will be added on this page at a later date.

PE - why not start the day with Joe Wicks at 9am? 


Or Just Dance videos also on Youtube? Great way to get going each morning!

Well-being activities.

There are some great ideas here of things you can do on your own or with your family. 


Oak National Academy - online mainstream lessons. Choose your year group or the subject you are interested in. Video lessons and resources.
