You are learning words that you just need to know how to spell before leaving Year 5!

Group 2 and 3:

This week you are focusing on words that all have –ible or –able ending.

Use this sheet to write the word in a sentence, to show its meaning. Spellings – write in a sentence


Task 1:  Can you make the target number by only using the numbers on the cards and any of the 4 operations? It’s Countdown time!  Maths Mon Starter

Task 2: We are going to continue revising some of the learning we have covered so far in Year 5.  You are going to focus on fractions.

White Rose Maths has put together a great home learning pack on this which can be accessed through this link:

You are going to start reading a new text today called ‘Serpents of the Nebula’. Read Chapter 1 and 2 today and complete the multiple choice quiz afterwards.


Task 1: Linking to the space theme of our new reading book, how many words can you make from the letters of the word ‘constellation’? Mon-word finder

Task 2: At the end of chapter 2, the children find themselves spinning out into space and heading towards HMS Horizon. Will they land safely, or will they hurt themselves? What kind of state will HMS Horizon be in? Will they bump into anyone they know? Continue the next part of the story. This has been set as a 2Do for you today.


As it was International Family Day on Friday, we thought it would be a lovely idea for you to create a family tree. You can use this template or create one of your own. On each leaf, write the name of the family member, their age and their relationship to you e.g. mum, brother, aunty, cousin etc. We look forward to seeing the finished creations! Family Tree PSHE


Watch this clip about French food to remind yourself about the vocabulary of different foods in French:

Then have a go at drawing a plate of food that you have eaten recently and label each item of food in French. Miam miam! French food

Keeping Active:  

Make sure you take regular work breaks and join in with the body Coach – P.E. with Joe at 9 a.m.
