Welcome to Year 5

Home Learning


The next few weeks will look different for all of us and we wish to keep our children active, engaged and learning!


Our 'Get Involved' page ( ) will  challenge you to a daily 'task' and you can email us at to share your pictures, videos or diaries.


Please also download our Home Learning Packs and resources if you weren't able to collect one from school. We still have some available in the office if you would like to call in and collect one for your child. 


We will continue to update these resources, so please keep visiting our class page as well as checking parentmail.



Vanimation by Dog and Rabbit

Need some more inspiration as to how you could use household items to create your video? Check this video out!

Year 5 Animation Challenge


You should have now seen the information sheet, which was included in your Home Learning pack, with details as to how you can produce your own animation video. 


We will be running this as a competition, closing on the 30th April, so you will have plenty of time to trial and improve your video.


There will be two winners who will each receive a £5 Playstation (or evoucher of choice). We are looking for the best use of household items, along with effort and story originality. 


Good luck and get animating!
