Year 5 - Otter & Kingfishers

Our topic for Term 5 is: 

Time Traveller!

Tick, tock, tick, tock. The hands on the clock never stop. From the moment we are born, from toddler to teen, middle age to elderly, time stops for no man. Find out what happens to our bodies and brains as we grow older, and how we cope with these changes. How long does a human baby take to grow inside the womb? Does it take longer than an elephant calf? Or a kitten? Take a good look at yourself. How has your face changed since you were a baby and how will it change as you grow older? Can you photograph it, change it, age it? And what would happen if the clock struck 13? In Tom’s Midnight Garden, he travels to the past. Imagine that you could time travel too. When would you like to travel to and what would you like to see? Will you head back to your past or into your future? You decide.




Set on:  

Due in at the latest:  


Over the Easter holidays we will not be setting pre-learning as such. However, recently the children completed mid-year assessments which they will be sent home with on Thursday. Attached below are the mark schemes for the papers. You may want to spend some time looking through your papers and revisiting questions you did not get correct. 


No Mathletics will be set either so spend some time over the two weeks catching up on any outstanding tasks that need to be completed. 


There will be no spelling test on Monday. 




Please send your pre-learning to no later than Monday morning. There is no need to bring your homework books in! 






If your child is unable to attend school due to compulsory self-isolation because of Corona Virus, we ask them to:


  • Complete their Mathletic's tasks
  • Practice their weekly spellings which are on the website.
  • Complete pre-learning tasks on the website.
  • Keep reading their reading books and access the Accelerated Reader quizzes online.
  • Complete lessons on Oak National Academy  - 
  • Ensure they are completing exercise inside the home or in the garden using Joe Wick's videos on YouTube.
Here you will find spellings for the week. Again, we will not be sending physical copies home so please use the picture to practise your spellings!
