Emmaville Primary School

Year 5 Home Learning

Hello and welcome to the Year 5 Home Learning page.  Here, you will find suggestions, ideas, resources and timetables for your education in the coming weeks.  Wherever possible, links to useful websites, online activities, information sheets and images will be included here, to support your home working packs.  
It's very important that you keep yourself busy, and one thing that really helps, is a regular routine.  With this in mind, there will be a timetable posted on this page every Monday, which you can refer to each day.  The blue underlined links will take you to useful resources.
One last thing: the main priority is to keep healthy and happy.  Please try to get some fresh air every day - go for a walk/ bike ride/ play in the garden - and try to be helpful around the house (remember that your parents and carers are having to cope with all this too!).  Why not learn a new skill, like cooking, drawing, a foreign language, knit & sew, or become an expert at something you can already do; there are many videos popping up online at the moment, especially for children.


Monday 13th July



This week is the final week of the school year. It has been a strange and difficult year but all you children have been amazing, especially during this time of Covid. We are so proud of you all and want to thank all you kids for the effort you have put in and all you adults for your amazing support.


This week, we will be exploring organisms in science and automatic drawing in art. We would love you to create your own quiz about a topic of your choosing and we will end the week with #QUIZUNITE. In addition, we want you to have your own movie afternoon or picnic, or both!


We will also be calling you for a chat and to wish you a happy holiday before the summer break starts.


Have a great week.
