Week Beginning Monday 20th April

Good morning Year 5,

We hope you all had a lovely Easter break and got up to some exciting activities. Perhaps you enjoyed some Easter eggs and possibly hot cross buns too? We’d love to see any pictures of your Easter fun!

Please use the timetable below for your learning this week. You can access these tasks on the ‘Home Learning’ page under the ‘Year Five’ button. Remember, there is no expectation to complete all of the tasks we have set – but there is plenty there to keep you busy!


Arithmetic questions, focusing on multiplication, rounding, angles and time.
Use the examples and hints at the top of each page to help you. These tasks are tasks similar to ones we have completed in class, so this is good revision! Mark your work using the honesty sheets provided.

Finding out the meanings of words and editing vocabulary for meaning.
The work is based on ‘The Clockwork Crow’ by Catherine Fisher.
Your first task will require a dictionary to help with word meanings. When you are asked to give a reminder of what the word DOES NOT mean, you need to think of the opposite meaning.
The underlined words in your second task are all pieces of description – be sure to check the word you replace it with really does make sense!

Guided Reading

Tasks based on the text ‘The Clockwork Crow’ by Catherine Fisher.
The tasks follow a similar format to our lessons in class. When you get onto the comprehension questions, be sure to use the text to help you answer the questions – do not guess! Mark your comprehension questions using the honesty sheet provided.

The table below is a suggestion of extra-curricular activities you may like to try too:


Make a wordsearch

Scavenger Hunt

Have a go at making a wordsearch for someone on your family to complete. 

  1. Draw yourself a grid of squares on a piece of paper

  2. Fill in the words you want to be found (and write a list of them at the bottom of the page)

  3. Fill in the blank spaces with random letters

  4. Give your wordsearch to someone else – how long does it take them to find all the words?

Your wordsearch could be on a theme – holidays, animals, things found in the garden… be creative!

In your garden or a safe outdoor space collect as many of the following in your tub/bowl as you can:

  • Something wet

  • Something noisy

  • Something old

  • Something heavy

  • Something shiny

  • Something dry

  • Something quiet

  • Something new

  • Something light

  • Something dark

  • Something you would like to keep

  • Something that can blow in the wind

  • Something you have never seen before

  • Something that smells nice

  • Something beautiful

  • Five shades of green

With the scavenged items, can you create a sculpture or picture? Can you invent a new species of creature? Or replicate a beautiful landscape you have seen?

Art from Mrs Milne

Science from Mrs Arnold

We were so thrilled to see all the fabulous rainbow pictures that so many of you sent in at the start of our stay-at-home experience.  This week, Mrs Milne will be suggesting a way to re-visit this theme to create a 3D version for your windowsill. Check the Art@Home blog post for more details.

Plastic milk!

Make plastic out of these simple ingredients: milk, vinegar and you will also need a sieve! 

Visit the school blog on the 20th April for the full instructions.

Please send Miss Pearmain and Mrs Arnold pictures of your work and any home learning which you do – we will upload a class blog every Monday, Wednesday and Friday so it would be lovely to include some photographs of your home learning to share with our school community!

If you have any questions, please email us using your bwjsapps account.


Take care and stay safe,

Miss Pearmain and Mrs Arnold x
