Year 5 (Class 12)

Welcome To Class 12’s Page

***All new work is being posted underneath the welcome message below***

Hello year 5 children, parents and carers,

While lots of us will be required to work and learn from home in the coming weeks we will be using this class page, our year 5 twitter page @SMAAAyear5 and Toco Mail to keep in touch with our children at home and send out work activities and support. Please keep checking these platforms for updates and new tasks. New work and resources will be posted on our class pages each week below this message just scroll down and look for the date to find it.

If you are struggling with any of the work you have been asked to complete then you can message your teachers directly via Toco Mail. 

You can visit some of the web pages we have shared below for some extra practise

Also, while you are at home, why not try to keep active indoors? Every morning from 9am Joe Wicks (the Body Coach) will be holding live PE sessions on his YouTube channel (the Body Coach TV). These will be saved on his page and you can do them at any time. It is a great way to burn energy and keep yourself entertained!

Finally, remember to take time to be mindful. Spend time in quiet spaces, read books, colour pictures, listen to music, observe the nature around you. 

Miss Hickey, Mrs Bird, Mrs Elliot and Mrs Grundy.


Hi year 5, We have reached half term! This means for the next two weeks you can enjoy the sunshine and have fun with your families. If you want to do any home learning we will be putting activities below this message and you can still keep in touch on Toco mail.

We are so proud of how well you have engaged with your home learning activities and think your resilience at this strange time is inspiring. Remember, this is not forever! and we will hopefully be back and enjoying working in our classrooms together soon.

Enjoy your half term break! Take time away from screens, spend time in the sunshine, breathe in fresh air, read, listen to music, make art and crafts and exercise when you can. All will help you to keep your mind happy. πŸ’› from your year 5 teachers.

Half term beginning Monday 25th May 

The next two weeks are what would have been your half term holiday so instead of the usual timetable of home learning lessons, we have set you a challenge…. We hope you will have fun doing this!

Each day there is an activity for you to complete. These might be based on your learning in Year 5, creative activities, activities to help you to keep active or just a bit of fun but we would like you to see how many you can complete. Keep a log in some way of each task that you do. You can write or draw in your work book or take pictures and send them to us on Toco mail. The choice is yours but we can’t wait to see how creative and imaginative you can be in completing each days task! Good luck and above all… HAVE FUN!

(We have also kept some of the fun computing activities, alphabet work out and the brief for your creative task on our class pages below the half term activities as we know how much some of you have enjoyed completing them.)

You can still contact us via Toco mail if you need any support or if you would like to share what you have been up to. Well done for engaging so well with all of the learning so far and enjoy your half term break, Mrs Bird, Mrs Elliot, Miss Hickey and Mrs Grundy. 

Why not try to create your own work out each morning using the alphabet work out chart below. You could use your own name each day or even take part as a family and spell out the names of different members of your family throughout the week! Enjoy keeping active! 

Creative task
Over the next four weeks we would like you to create a board game that could be used to help and encourage children in year 5 to learn the spellings of common exception words for year 5 and times tables facts. 
Think about board games that you have played before or examples or you can research different board games online. Your game should have question cards which could test the players on spelling words correctly and quick recall of multiplication facts. 
The list of common exception words and multiplication facts is below for you to use when you are making your game.
and here is an example of a layout for your board game. Chance cards could be spellings questions and challenge cards could be used for times tables questions. You do not need to print the board below, you can draw out your own on paper. 
Computing – To remake a scene from a film using scratch 
Last week you were asked to use Scratch Jr and coding to create a thank you message to NHS staff and key workers. This week you will be using scratch again but this time we would like you to try to remake a scene from your favourite film (please remember to only recreate films which are appropriate for your age group). 
To complete this task you will need any device that can go onto the internet so that you can access the scratch website though the web browser. This link takes you to an example of a scene from Toy Story recreated in scratch (click the flag to play it and click ‘see inside’ to see the code used to make the film.
The documents below talk you through the steps to completing your Scratch online. 
Remember to share your Scratch creations with us (on the project page there is a ‘copy link’ icon in the bottom right hand corner) paste the link to your Scratch into a message on Tocomail so we can see your creations and share them on twitter!
The Scratch activity from last week is below for anyone who would like to practise coding on Scratch Jr again before moving onto Scratch. 
Computing – To use Scrath Jr to make a short animation
This activity is for children in KS1 but we will complete it this week to refresh our memories and practise using scratch so we can complete more scratch activities next week and in the future.
To complete this activity you will need a tablet or smart phone and the app Scratch Jr installed on the devise.
In this activity we will be thinking about the people in the NHS and other key workers who are working hard to help us during this current time. Follow the steps in the document below to complete your scratch. Share your work or screen shots of your scratches with us on Tocomail so we can share your fantastic work on twitter. 
The PSHE activity below is from previous weeks but we are leaving the link here for anyone who would like to continue to take the online quizzes and learn more about looking after themselves. 
To show I understand how to look after me. Visit this website and play some of the online quizzes which you haven’t explored yet (we suggest emotions, exercise, healthy food and exercise, hygiene and keeping safe). 
Mindfulness – Take some time to complete some quiet activities while listening to relaxing music. You may want to complete some mindful colouring. An example colouring sheet has been attached below but you can draw and colour your own detailed design. 

Time Capsule – Complete your own time capsule which you may want to look back on to remember how we lived and the changes that we had to make during our time of isolation. Time Capsule COVID 19

Mission Statement

At St Michael and All Angels School we are a Christian Community where everybody is valued and recognised for their unique contribution. We provide a child-centred education in a positive learning environment in which all children may reach their full potential. The Gospel values of love and respect are at the heart of our partnership with parents and carers, Governors, the parish and wider community.

We will endeavour to provide the children with the knowledge and skills they need to make informed choices and to accept responsibility for their own actions.


β€’ to follow the Come and See syllabus in order to give the children an understanding of the Gospels;
β€’ to ensure that the targets set are challenging and that children achieve standards relevant to their year group and develop their full potential – spiritually, intellectually, physically and emotionally;
β€’ to ensure that children enjoy their work and behaviour is of a high standard;
β€’ to value the opinions and contributions made by the children to school life and to foster individuality and independence.


In our Literacy lessons, we are reading Varmints. We will be creating our own picture book drawing ideas from  the ones we have read.  We will be learning lots of new writing techniques and vocabulary and trying to include this in our writing.



In Maths, we will be focusing on fractions, decimals and percentages. We will be developing our problem solving and reasoning skills and consolidating our knowledge of times tables.



Our topic this half term is Properties and changes of materials – child led investigations. It is a great topic where we explore the properties of different materials and how materials are selected for different uses based on their properties.  There will be opportunities to work as groups during investigative and research work.



This term we will be learning about our Local Geography.  We will be learning about how Kirkby has changed over time by looking at maps from different times in history. 



We will be developing our painting skills taking inspiration from British artist David Hockney.  


Our Classroom!

Reading area

In Class 11 we are lucky to have two large library areas filled with lots of books that we can share and enjoy. We have library monitors who look after the libraries and keep track of all of the books. We can sign books out of our class library and take them home to share with family and enjoy in their own time.

Our computing area

We have a computer in our classroom which we can use in lesson times and in golden times to do research to help us with our work and to complete different tasks. We have written our own e-safety rules which we have promised to stick by to stay safe when using computers and the internet both in class and at home. We will be following a computing curriculum to enhance your computing skills across the year.


Class Dojos

We award Class Dojos to children in Year 5 who are well behaved, try hard in class, are well mannered and help others.
Who will win the Class Dojo competition this term for the child with the most positive points?
