Year 5 Home Learning: Week 7

Week Beginning: Monday 8th 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:  











disastrous embarrass 



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 55 – Word list – years 5 and 6 – conv to en-, 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.


Below is a link to an activity booklet containing all of the Year 5/6 statutory words. (Answer sheet included). It is free to create a Twinkl parent login – use code CVDTWINKLHELPS.


The link below takes you to pack of word searches for all of the Year 5/6 statutory words.


New for this week:  


Below is a link for some work correcting spellings. The ability to spot mistakes and be able to fix them is an important skill to have.


This week’s English lessons are all based on writing an alternative ending to a story and follow the same structure as the previous Oak National Academy lessons. Make sure you have a pen and paper with you so that you can pause the videos when required and complete any tasks. The lessons build up to writing your own alternative ending in lesson 5. 



Lesson 1: Reading


In this lesson, you will be making comparisons between different texts.



Lesson 2: Reading


Today, you will be learning about making predictions from your reading.



Lesson 3: Exploring texts


Here you will be identifying the features of an alternative ending so it will be really helpful for lessons later this week.



Lesson 4: SPaG


In this lesson, you will be looking at direct speech and how to punctuate it. This is a really useful skill to be confident with so if you need to re-watch the video please do.


If you want some more practice on speech, you can also try watching this video and completing the activities.



Lesson 5: Writing


This lesson will help you plan and write your alternative ending. Once you have finished, we would love it if you could share your work with us on Twitter!




Year 3, 4 and 5 shared story – The TimeTravelling Cat and the Tudor Treasure by Julia Jarman 



Continuing the story about Topher and his pet cat Ka as they go on a time-travelling adventure with a Tudor focus!  


Each week we will record around 5 instalments for you to enjoy. For previous instalments, check the previous week’s learning pages.
