Welcome to Year 5
At this difficult time for us, we wanted to reach out and reassure you that we are still here! If you would like to email your teacher to share what you have been doing, talk about what home schooling is like, or just to say “Hello” then we would love to hear from you. Please bear in mind that some of the teachers are at school looking after Key Worker children, and others are at home taking time off before they come in to be responsible for these children, so we may not get back to you immediately, but we will reply to you when we can.
We would also like to say that additional ideas for things to do – and some videos made by teachers at the school – can be found on the “bonus content” tab!
The staff team here have been making contingency plans for the weeks ahead. If we do have to close, staff have been preparing packs of work to send home so that children can continue
to access learning. Any help and support you can give with this is very much appreciated but we
recognise that this may be difficult if adults or the children are unwell. Please do what you can.
The teachers have chosen work that they feel is appropriate to their year group, and this may appear different for each class.
At the moment, we do not know how this will affect the formal assessments that are due to be undertaken in the summer term. The work is intended to cover a two-week period; if the closure is for longer than this additional work will be added to the website.
The teacher’s email address is: email@example.com
They will do their best to respond to any questions you may have, and we thank you for your patience.

Above are some extra Maths sheets to keep you going. The Stars at the bottom are to show differentiated levels- 1star easiest, 2 star medium, three star, most difficult. Feel free to try them all!
When finding common denominators (adding fractions), children need to make each fraction the same denominator. They can do this by multiplying one denominator by another or just using one of the given denominators, if they are factors of each other. Then they must do the same to the top (numerator) as they've done to the bottom number (denominator). Hope this make sense- the children have done lots of them. I'll give an example;
1/5 + 3/10 =
Change denominator to tenths, in order to add them.
so, I multiply the fifths by 2 to get tenths. Therefore I need to multiply the top number of 1/5 by 2, to make it equivalent.
Therefore I end up with 1/5 = 2/10
So then, 2/10 + 3/10 = 5/10 this can then be simplified to 1/2, if children feel confident.
Hopefully this makes sense?
