Year 5 Home Learning

Here are a variety of links and activities to support Year 5 pupils and parents when learning at home. Keep checking this page, as it’ll be regularly updated with videos and new activities (also, keep checking MyMaths, Spelling Shed and Purple Mash for new tasks).

If you have any queries or requests, please contact Miss Griffiths at (weekdays between 8.30am-3pm). If you want any photos or work from home displayed on this page, Miss Griffiths would love to see it and place it in the section at the bottom of this page.
