Year 5 Home Working Resources

Work from Home Resources- Year 5

Dear Parents and Carers

We have compiled some resources and ideas for you to use with your children while the school is closed. These are hopefully all things you can access easily at home and we have tried to ensure they are as fun and interactive as possible! Thank you for your ongoing support in this uncertain time.


  • Compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number
  • Identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths
  • Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number [for example, 25 + 45 = 65 = 1 15 ]
  • Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator and denominators that are multiples of the same number
  • Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams


  • Use relative clauses beginning with who, which, where, whose, that or an omitted relative pronoun
  • Commas to clarify meaning and avoid ambiguity
  • Use brackets, dashes or commas to indicate parenthesis
  • Writing non-chronological reports
  • Writing formal biographies 


  • The National Curriculum Year 5 and 6 word list can be found online and inside the children’s recording records.


Please continue to read with your child as much as possible. This does not have to be only your child reading; you can also read stories to them and talk about them. When the children are reading, remember to focus on fluency and expression, and also ask questions about what they have read to check their understanding.

There is a website called Teach Your Monster to Read, which you can sign up to for free on a computer (you need to pay for tablet version). There are games and activities to help children with phonics and reading.

Teach Your Monster to Read

Some children may also want to practise their phonics skills  and Phonics Play have also allowed free access for the coming weeks. There are lots of games and flashcards covering all of the phonics the children have learnt so far, so would be a great tool to keep up these skills.

The following links are for stories that are read aloud or children can read along with online:

The Book Trust

Story Line Online


  • Living things and their habitats

As the children have been learning how to play the Ukulele with Mrs Philippou, there are no specific objectives to place here. There are videos on YouTube that the children may wish to use to allow them to tune with and recap the chords they have already learnt. 

Children may also the free app 'Garage Band' to create their own music.


The children use Duolingo in school to assist with their Spanish learning. See below for the link to the website.
