Welcome to Year 5!
My name is Miss Rainbow and I am the Science Lead here at Mobberley C of E Primary School.
Dear Parents and Carers,
Due to the forced school closures, I have prepared a range of resources that your child can access at home to ensure a continuation in their learning. This page will be updated with weekly learning from Monday 23rd March.
Talking to your child about why we are not in school.
Look at the links below for advice on discussing the current issues with young children.
Below, you will find an array of learning and activities for your children during this time. (Maths, English, History/Geography, Science, Wellbeing, Physical Activities).
Please ensure you have a good look at everything! There are lots of useful websites suggested too that you may want to access with your children.
Home learning work
Here is a suggested timetable to follow. Please try to keep your child’s routine as normal as possible.
Easter 6th-24th April
Below you will find a range of activities you may wish to do with your child over the Easter break. I have put up enough activities for you to stick to a Monday to Friday timetable if you wish, but they have also been designed for you to be able to dip in and out of them if there other activities you would like to do with your child during this time.
I am still happy to reply to any emails during this time and will continue to put up pictures on the class Instagram account so please feel free to send any work you wish to share.
For some of the activities below you will find they are broken down into 1,2 or 3 star activities with 1 star being the most accessible and 3 being the most challenging. I would suggest trying your child on the 2 star activity first, if they find this too difficult complete the 1 star, if they find it too easy, try the 3 star.
I have also uploaded a new spelling list for you to complete with your child at home and some activities they can complete at home to support them in learning their spellings
Week 1 Week 2
Friday – Learn spellings (use activities) Friday – Learn spellings (use activities)
The link below is for a year 5 multiplication and division workbook. Children can work their way through the pages of work.
I would also recommend getting the children to continue logging on to TTrockstars and 5 a day Maths.
After the Easter break we will be finding out about Space.
Children can choose to complete one or two of the activities in the list below.
They may also want to complete a moon diary.

Below is also a link to an Easter that has a whole range of different learning activities you may want to complete like learning sign language or morse code!
You may want to use the Easter break to focus on looking at some life skills with children or doing some fun challenges with them. I have put together of list of fun ‘taskmaster’ style challenges I will be putting on the class Instagram each day – there is also a list of all the challenges below if you do not have access to this.
Below there is a list of some life skills you may want to tick off (some will need adult supervision).
I hope you all have a lovely Easter break, despite the strange times we are in! I look forward to seeing everything you get up to.

A TWINKL login
Also included will be a Twinkl login for Parents that will allow you to access a whole host of resources to support your child, including SAT style papers, themed helpsheets and activities with crib sheets.
The school has subscribed to MyMaths, an interactive Maths website for teaching, learning, revising and enjoying mathematics. Usernames and passwords have been given to pupils in years 1 – 6 and sent home to parents in a letter.
- How do I find the homework my child has been set? When you go to the MyMaths homepage you will need to log in using your child’s new school username and password. You will then see some more boxes labelled ‘My Portal’ where you can put in your child’s username and password. In here you should see your child’s homework on the first screen you come to. If you can’t see it, then make sure you are on your homework page by clicking the ‘My Homework’ tab on the left hand side of the page.
IXL Learning – Please try to use this at least once per week.
The website gives children questions based on mathematics that we have already learnt about in class and will hopefully encourage them to revisit concepts from earlier in the year.

Tuesday 15th October
Today we travelled to Chester Cathedral to take part in a Pilgrim Day. We had a fantastic time and learnt lots about the Pilgrims who visit Chester Cathedral and the monks who used to live there. In the afternoon, we were split into groups and got to make mosaics, sugar craft monks, stained glass windows and art inspired by bible stories.
