Year 5

Easter Holiday


You have now completed your first 2 weeks of working from home! Well done!


As it is now the Easter Holiday, we are not going to set you any work to do but we have a few challenges and ideas to help you decide what to do each day.


We would still like to hear from you through DB primary, we all like to read your news.


Enjoy yourselves, take care of each other and keep smiling.

2-Week Timetable of Activities

Warm and healthy wishes to you all.


During this unprecedented time, while the school is closed, the year five team will be regularly updating our year 5 page as well as checking in on the year 5 forum on DB Primary. As well as our page here, there are also suggestions of activities in the individual subject sections of the curriculum tab on the homepage.


To get us started, above is a 2 week timetable of activities. There is a selection of activities aimed to support learning and practice of skills in maths, English and foundation subjects - many of which are links to sites on the internet. Just like the home learning menu, please feel free to pick and choose and complete any additional or alternative activities that you feel will support your learning.  Don’t forget to include as much exercise and fun as as you can too!


Below are a selection of useful links:

Plenty of book banded e-books, maths games and activities, spelling and times tables practice. Free to register.
