On this web page, you will find work that your child can do every day. If you do not have access to a printer, please use the sheets on a tablet/computer/phone so your child can use the workbook we have provided them with, or paper that you have at home.

As well as the work provided, please ensure that your child is reading every day. This can be a book from home and please continue to write in their reading records so they can still be working towards earning their rewards.

You may find that we have supplied worksheets that cater for a range of abilities, in these cases, please choose the one that you think best suits your child.

We have also sent your child home with the log in information for Times Table Rockstars, please continue to use this every day. Should your child forget their login - please contact the team. 


If you have any further questions, or would like some more work for your child, please use the following email address: or simply fill in the contact form, located below. 

Please email Year 5 Team with photographs of work completed - feedback will be given. 


All teachers in the year group will have access to this email accounts and promote open communication with all our parents and carers and shall respond accordingly.

There is an expectation that children should be completing this work and you will find that this will help them stay occupied throughout the day and therefore help to keep them calmer!
