Year 5 Week 7 18/05/2020

Well, we are coming to the fifth and final week of the first half of the Summer term. We are excited to provide you with another week's worth of remote learning. This week, Mrs Clarkson will be responding to your emails as we are both in school.

As always, we will update this page as follows:

Monday - A Weekly Curriculum Overview: this will provide details of key skills and key vocabulary to discuss and practise at home. This overview will also provide two curriculum activities that can be completed over the course of the week.

Tuesday - A Core Learning Overview will be provided detailing one English and one Mathematics task.

Thursday - A Core Learning Overview will be provided detailing one English and one Mathematics task.

Tasks may include experiences, online activities, watching an online video or a paper based task. Please ask your child to use their Remote Learning Book to record learning when appropriate.

Please continue to share your child’s learning with us by emailing:

Thank you for your continued support. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any questions or queries. We are here to help!

Please see below a message from all the Sherwood staff:

If you would like to complete any extra activities, then Year 5 recommend:


  • Please continue to read each day and record your pages in your reading diaries, if you can. Try and read out loud to an adult and spend time discussing with them what you have read and understood. If you have finished the books that you took home, follow the link on the READING tab of the remote learning page to access three books each week. Why not borrow an e-book from Lancashire Library?
