Welcome to your Year 5 Virtual Classroom!
You have found our Year 5 Virtual Classroom and our Home Learning section. Welcome!
This is the place where you will find all the essential documents for your learning each week. New documents will be available from every Monday during the school closure.
You will need to follow the weekly timetable and use with the resources we upload here too. The work needs to be done in order and will always build on learning you’ve already done in school. You should be able to complete the tasks as independent as possible but, if we introduce something new, we will add a tutorial video to our Year 5 video channel for you to watch which will help support you. Make sure you sit somewhere quietly, ideally at a table and with the TV or your phone off like we would in the classroom to complete your home learning.
Please remember to make sure your parents/ carers check their emails every Monday morning for a message from us at Year 5 HQ!

Football Character Reading Challenge
Working with Bristol Rovers, we have something exciting and FREE from the Premier League, who have teamed up with the National Literacy trust for this exciting event and top author, Dan Freedman to create a football challenge.

You might have read some of the Jamie Johnson books, or even seen the stories on the CBBC channel!
This challenge includes a live digital event with Dan Freedman and Ben Shires, the opportunity to download a FREE COPY of a Jamie Johnson e-book 'The Kick Off' and a live interview with Dan and TV presenter Ben Shires with Dan also reading an excerpt from the book.
The live event takes place at 11:30 am on Tuesday, 2nd June (details and links in the information pages below) and there is going to be a special announcement relating to this challenge! Make sure you tune in - you could even ask a question or get a shout out!
