Research the weather in Greece, paying particular attention to rainfall. Find some data on rainfall throughout the year and compare it with the rainfall in the UK. You could create a graph if you like to illustrate this comparison, plotting the rainfall of both countries with a different colour pencil.  You could also write a paragraph or two comparing the rainfall and suggesting some geographical reasons why these differences might be, such as different positions in relation to the equator. Can you find out anything else about the weather in Greece? 




Reasoning paper with answers

You might want to test yourself or you might want to research and revise the things you are unsure about as you go. Note that if you can't print it out you may not be able to answer some of the questions, such as ones involving measuring things.

French Home Learning Projects and Activities - May 2020



Dear Parents 19/3/2020

It is with great regret that we write to you in these unprecedented circumstances. It is important that the children understand that school being closed during term time is an entirely different situation to the school being closed during the holidays. Academically, it is vital that we can all work together to ensure the children continue to access learning and make progress. With this in mind we have provided them all with a learning pack containing the following:

Reading comprehensions

Arithmetic tests

Grammar tests

Reading book

Homework books (CGP)

It is important to bear in mind that these are examples of the things that your child can be doing at home. We will be using the Year 5 class page on the school website to provide further resources, but it is beyond the capacity of the school at this time for us to print any more than we currently have. Further comprehension, SPAG, maths and writing tasks will be uploaded to the class page and children can, if needed, access these on screen and record their answers on paper at home. We will also endeavour to provide answers where possible on the website, although this will not always be practical due to the volume of work we are providing. We have also created class emails through which you can contact your child’s class teacher for any major issues which might arise through your child’s home learning. We will endeavour to answer your all your queries.

The children have access to a range of online learning resources which will be linked on the Year 5 class page. Their log ins are written down in their reading records having been checked over the last fortnight. Again we may link tasks set on the Year 5 class page to their online learning environments which they can log in to.

Finally, we have provided your child with a log in for the school email system. Please do not use this unless directed to do so through an update posted on the Year 5 class page. It may be that this is a more effective way to provide children with more in depth teaching and learning opportunities at some stage.


We hope to see you all again soon


Mr Bowring & Mrs Masters

Test papers Year 5 20/3


A reminder of the expectations in Year 5:

Homework completed by Thursday, set on Friday.

Spellings to learn each week

Times table practise is essential - this will really show up in our weekly times tables tests.

You should write three entries per week into your reading record when you read. In addition to this you should be reading to your parents, who should be signing your reading record to say they have heard you read, twice per week.
