Reading for Pleasure in Y5


We love to read in Year Five.



Summer Term Reading for Pleasure Book - Street Child by Berlie Doherty

When his mother dies, Jim Jarvis is left all alone in London. He is sent to the workhouse but quickly escapes, choosing a hard life on the streets of the city over the confines of the workhouse walls.

Struggling to survive, Jim finally finds some friends… only to be snatched away and made to work for the remorselessly cruel Grimy Nick, constantly guarded by his vicious dog, Snipe.

Will Jim ever manage to be free?

Our first class book is the fabulous adventure set in India:


Asha and the Spirit Bird by Jasbinder Bilan


This halfterm PE will be on a Monday and a Thursday. Please remember to wear your full named kit to school.




Regular reading is vital to becoming a lifelong learner. Read at least 4 times per week and record and comment on SeeSaw. Finished a book? Why not write a book review to encourage others to read it



Weekly homework will be set and submitted on SEESAW. This can be accessed on tablets and laptops.



We will be setting our spelling homework on Spelling Shed so there will be lots of fun games to play every week to help consolidate learning.


Times Tables Rockstars

The children have been given Log-in information to access Times Table Rockstars at home and school. 

This resource is lots of fun whilst helping to improve the children's rapid recall and knowledge of their times tables.


Homework Grid

Don't forget to complete 6 pieces of homework from your topic grid. Don't forget to photograph and upload onto SeeSaw.


BBC Supermovers

We will be using BBC Supermovers to help us learn and consolidate our knowledge of times tables. The children will have lots of fun practising their tables along with perfecting some interesting moves....!

There are other programmes to use on this website which relate purely to KS2, English, Mathematics, PSHE too.
