Every Friday, we will send out, and upload, a Year 5 home learning newsletter, which will outline new tasks for the following week. Each week, you will be set a new arithmetic sheet, several tasks on MyMaths, a reading comprehension pack, a writing task, a grammar activity, your weekly spellings and some Science-related activities.
Alongside these, we will set some additional activities linked to other areas of the curriculum. For additional resources, please check out the list of "Key Home Learning Websites" further down this page.
Whilst you are away from school, we would like you to make a note of the activities that you have completed in your yellow home learning book. We recommend that you create your own daily timetable to help you organise your activities, keep a routine and find a good balance between learning, free time and home life. REMEMBER, learning covers many aspects and areas, not just academic subjects from the National Curriculum, so take the opportunity to try something new and different!
If you would like to share the work you have done, you can send a picture of your learning via email. Please do keep us updated with what you have been up to, and let us know if you have any questions.
Keep safe, keep well, keep busy!

The Human Life Cycle
Your writing task this week is linked to Science, and it is to produce an explanation text about the human life cycle. The resources you need for this can be found below:
Mixed Up Fairy Tale
Our English focus for this week is the nonsense poem ‘The Jabberwocky’ by Lewis Carroll. Please read through (or listen to: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_Um3787fSY) the poem, and then have a go at the 5 tasks outlined below:
1. Comprehension (Vocabulary): A lot of nonsense words in the poem have been derived from something called portmanteau. Portmanteau is when you create a new word by merging two separate words together in order to combine their meanings. A common example is breakfast + lunch = brunch. We would like you to have a go at predicting what the following nonsense words mean: frumious, burble, gimble, slithy, chortle, mimsy, galumphing and frabjous. You can then check the Jabberwocky Dictionary to see if you were right! There is a template below to help you with this.
2. Comprehension (Summarise): Carefully read through each verse and then have a go at summarising what is happening in a sentence or two (see example below). Feel free to refer to the Jabberwocky Dictionary for those trickier verses!
3. Writing: As a fun writing task this week, we would like you to have a go at tweaking this poem to make it your own. You can easily do this by changing some of the nonsense words. When doing this you would need to keep the word class and tense the same. For example, ‘galumphing’ means ‘triumphantly galloping’, so it is a present-tense verb. You can pick two different words with similar meanings and create your own portmanteau to use instead. You may decide that the boy will be ‘victoriously dashing’ back and come up with ‘vicashing’. Or maybe he is ‘proudly scurrying’ and so is ‘prurrying’. Remember, they will sound quite silly as they are made up! You can change as many of these words as you like. If you are feeling particularly adventurous you could try to add in your own verse (in-between verses 4 and 5 you could add in a more detailed fight scene for example). Once you have made your changes, write your version of the poem up in your neatest handwriting.
4. Performing: Practise reading through the poem (you can either use the original version, or the one that you have tweaked). Have a go at performing it to your family – read it with confidence, and think carefully about your tone of voice, ensuring that it reflects the mood of each verse.
5. Art & Design: Have a go at creating a picture of the Jabberwocky. What do you think the Jabberwocky looks like? You can use whichever media you like to do this – you could use colouring pencils, create a black and white sketch, do some painting, some collage… Challenge yourself to annotate your artwork with some descriptive vocabulary.

Last week, you learnt a lot about the Muslim place of worship, the Mosque. We would now like you to compare a typical Islamic mosque with the Christian church. What is similar and what is different? There is a PowerPoint below to help you with this and, when you go through it, you will see that there are actually quite a few similarities between these two places of worship.
It is up to you how you show your findings. You could write a short paragraph explaining what you have learnt, draw a table or create a Venn Diagram.
