Reading for Pleasure in Y5


We love to read in Year Five.


We are currently reading 'The Kid Who Came from Space' by Ross Welford


The Kid Who Came from Space by Ross Welford



The stunning new 10+ story from the bestselling and award-winning author of TIME TRAVELLING WITH A HAMSTER, for anyone who loved the humour of WALL-E, the action of STAR WARS and the deeply touching emotion of ET.

A small village in the wilds of Northumberland is rocked by the disappearance of twelve-year-old Tammy. Only her twin brother, Ethan, knows she is safe – and the extraordinary truth of where she is. It is a secret he must keep, or risk never seeing her again.

But that doesn’t mean he’s going to give up.

Together with his friend Iggy and the mysterious (and very hairy) Hellyann, Ethan teams up with a spaceship called Philip, and Suzy the trained chicken, for a nail-biting chase to get his sister back… that will take him further than anyone has ever been before.

A remarkable story of sibling connection, friendship and interstellar adventure from the author Kiran Millwood Hargrave called “one of my favourite middle grade writers”.



Last term we enjoyed The Middler by Kirsty Applebaum

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 7 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.
