Year 5 Home Learning: Week 6

Week Beginning: Monday 1st June 2020



English Tasks


Weekly spellings:  

The Oak Academy website provides a small selection of spellings for the children to learn but we feel it might be beneficial to practise these spellings from the Year 5/6 Statutory word list:  















Use our Spelling strategies (in the document below) to help you learn these words. Strategies include: dot to dot, speed challenge, boxing up the word and pyramid words.


How can I learn my spellings


Talk about the meaning of each word and make sure you can use them in a sentence.


Go to: and click on Year 5 and 6 and find Spelling Rule 54 – Word list – years 5 and 6 – aw to cont, then click on ‘Play’ and ‘Spelling Tiles’.

Here, you can choose from a range of free activities to help you learn the spelling of the given words. There is also an option for a test where the computer reads sentences and the spelling word to the child and they type the correct spelling in the box. It tells the child whether or not the spelling is correct. For these parts of this website, there is no need for a subscription or login.

Story time – The TimeTravelling Cat and the Tudor Treasure by Julia Jarman



In Year 3 for the past few weeks, we have been recording The Time-Travelling Cat and the Egyptian Goddess. As we have finished the book and have permission from the lovely author, we thought we’d move onto another in the series – The Time-Travelling Cat and the Tudor Treasure. This time, we have decided to share it with more than just Year 3 as the Tudors make up so much of our Barwell Curriculum.


Each week we will record around 5 instalments for you to enjoy.
