Day 1 (23.03.20)

Here they are, the answers to the comprehension and the maths problems from yesterday. No sneaky peeks until you have had a go at the work! J 

Hello Year 5,

Missing you already! Has it really only been the weekend? Hope you’re all keeping well. Here are your tasks for today. We have tried not to give you too much to do, especially as it is only day one and also because most of you have brothers or sisters who may also need mum or dad’s time as well.


  • Task 1:  P.E. – Complete the work out with Joe Wicks (‘The Body Coach’) on Youtube. This will live stream from 9:00am until 9:30am. Do it in your pyjamas if you have to – we promise not to laugh 😊. If you do miss this workout, don’t miss the chance for exercise. Put on your favourite song and get dancing (or even play air guitar if that fits more appropriately with the music!). Or, if you can, get out in the sunshine. Go for a walk or play out for a while in your yard/garden.
  • Task 2: English – Written Comprehension. Book 1: Comprehension 1 ‘The Word Party’. As you complete the comprehension, underline any words you do not understand. Either look these up in a dictionary or ask an adult to explain these.

We will aim to post the answers to the questions on this page at some point later today.

  • Task 3: Maths – (a) In your workbook. Start by reading page 2 (‘Counting Backwards Through Zero’). Then complete questions 1 and 2 on page 8 and questions 8 and 9 on page 9. (b) On paper. Complete the word problems below. We will aim to post the answers on this page at some point later today.


  • Task 4: Spelling – revise a familiar spelling pattern.


(a) ONLINE – Click on this link:


Have a go at the online activities. You will need the sound to be switched on/to work on your device for these activities to be most effective.


OR (b) If you are unable to play the online activities, the spelling pattern for today is -ough. Write down as many words as you can think of that contain this letter string. Try to group them into words that rhyme, e.g. tough and rough, cough and trough. If you get stuck, try looking through some books to see if you can find any words there. Remember to look up any words that you do not understand in a dictionary (or ask an adult).


Remember, if you need us, you can contact us via e-mail or if this is not possible, via telephone. We will try to get back to you as soon as possible.


All the best for your first day of home learning,

Take care,


Miss Wood and Mrs Canipa
