  1. Represent equivalent fractions in different ways using objects around the home (or even the snow outside) and add photos to this page.
  2. Write a poem about the weather - can be any weather of your choosing but it would be good to see winter themed poems.
  3. Have a go at the spellings crossword and wordsearch again below.
  4. Watch Newsround on the link below and respond to the show with a comment about it below.
  5. Use the snow or other natural objects to create a building with a green roof system like we have in our DT lessons?

Spring Term Homework

Emergency closure 8th Sept

Here are some tasks for you to do today if you cannot access the work on Teams/One Note.


1) Watch today's Newsround episode on their website/your TV and write down your thoughts about each of the talking points. 


2) Today we will be focusing on numbers up to 100,000 using the White Rose website. Can you think of your own 5-digit numbers (at least 10) and write down as many different things you know about this number; E.g., the number name, how it could be partitioned (remember there is more than one way/model to do this), what it could look like in pictorial form (as an image/picture). There are also PowerPoints of work for you to look at below. I would also like you to find a game for the 6- and 12-times tables. There are also Supermovers available on the link below if you are feeling active! 

3) Re-read the abridged version of The Midnight Fox again (see attachment below). Try to think of actions to help you remember your text map from. You could also visit the Topmarks website to play some spelling games. Please also take time to read a book. I would love to know about the book and why you have chosen to read it. Climate change comprehension task. Read the information on the page below and then choose one of the four pages of questions to answer. 

4) Computing - have a look at this e-safety task below. Try to answer as many questions as you can.

Welcome to Year 5 with Mr Coxon and Miss McGough!

Our topic for Autumn 1 is 'Our Fragile World'. Within English, we are reading the story "The Midnight Fox" and completing work based on this text. Please encourage your child to do their own research into areas they are particularly interested in, alongside the class curriculum homework tasks which can be found below.

Expectations in Year 5


In year 5, there is plenty of exciting and interesting experiences already planned and even more to come, and with this many challenges to improve our learning and our growth. This means everyone needs to be raring and ready to go in September to start our year 5 adventure.

Children will start the day with some independent activities before collective worship, which are to be completed in their books. 

Children will need their water bottles in school for the classroom, they will also need to bring their PE kits in school on the first day ready for PE on Tuesday and Forest School clothes for Thursday afternoons.

If you have any questions please contact me via the school office or you can use the contact me section at the bottom of this page.

Attached is the timetable for year 5:


Rights Respecting Article: Article 29 (Goals of education): Children’s education should develop each child’s personality, talents and abilities to the fullest. It should encourage children to respect others, human rights and their own and other cultures. It should also help them learn to live peacefully, protect the environment and respect other people. Children have a particular responsibility to respect the rights their parents, and education should aim to develop respect for the values and culture of their parents. The Convention does not address such issues as school uniforms, dress codes, the singing of the national anthem or prayer in schools. It is up to governments and school officials in each country to determine whether, in the context of their society and existing laws, such matters infringe upon other rights protected by the Convention.

The Year 5 Autumn homework grid is below.  When you have completed a piece of homework please add it to your child's homework folder on OneNote or kept in a folder should they wish to create paper copies. You may even wish to take photos of work completed and upload those to a page.

Reading books are sent home daily and we encourage reading at home as much as possible.


Homework may now be handed out and completed using Microsoft Teams and One Note. Please follow the link below to log in to the Durham Learning Network (whether you use a laptop or tablet). You will need to click on Microsoft Office 365 which is located in the top right hand corner and then click on the One Note section (Purple box with the N on it) once the next page loads up. Then click on the year group that starts with (TM) and has the year 2021 on it to access our pages. Your child has been given a paper copy of their individual log in details to access this site/information (these have been updated for September and have been e-mailed to parents). Please do not share this information with others, they should be for your child only (siblings may need to take extra care that they log in to the correct class otherwise they will not be able to see the correct work for them). Your children will receive demonstrations in school to help with this new way of completing homework.

Spellings will be given out on a Monday during our English session and a test will be carried out on a Friday and children will be expected to relearn any that they got incorrect at home.

Your children should continue to work on their times tables at home as they will help in other areas of the Maths curriculum throughout the year.
