Home Learning Week 5 - 4th May 

Good morning everyone, 


We hope you have had a restful weekend and are feeling refreshed and ready for the week ahead. Before we start the week, as we would in collective worship, reflect on last week and think about three things that you are grateful for. Writing these down helps. Once you have done this, think about three things you are going to challenge yourself with this week! Do you think you can complete these? Try your best!


Below are the activities for this week - please go through the home guidance PowerPoint before getting on with the activities!


Remember to tweet us to tell us what you get up to @CTKLiverpoolY5! Please don't hesitate to get in touch if you need any help or guidance!

Home Learning Week 4 - 27th April 2020 


Goodmorning everyone! 

Another Monday without our usual gathering for collective worship and certificates. Perhaps you would like you spend some time this morning to gather with your family and consider some of the things you are grateful for at this time. We have included ours below. You may even want to give certificates out for your family, most supportive, most helpful etc... create your own or see some of the attached links below. 


As always tasks for the week have been added and additional challenges can be found on twitter @CTKLiverpoolY5 Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more support or guidance. 

Home Learning Week 4 Powerpoint



Seeing as Miss White cannot teach geography right now, the next best thing, David Attenborough is teaching geography lessons on BBC. These lessons can also be accessed on BBC Iplayer or BBC Red Button. 


Continuing with Earth and Space, use the following link to learn the order of the planets. From this you can produce a diagram 2D or 3D if you're feeling really creative; you could conduct further research and make a short video talking about the planets to help your friends or produce a mini project. There are many possibilities!

Home Learning Week 3 - 20th April 

Hi year 5, we hope you've had a lovely break over the Easter holidays, spent time with your family and of course ate lots of Easter eggs (Miss White can't wait to hear about them, you know how much she loves them). 


As we should have been returning to school today, it is time for us to start work again too, lets keep those brains active! 


There is already an abundance of activities further down for you to access as and when. You will find this weeks tasks and activities immediately below. As always, make sure you are accessing Spelling Shed and Times Table Rockstars as well as daily reading! Handwriting is always something you can practise too - you can combine this with the year 5/6 spelling list (see below)!

Additional Activities 

From the video above, there are a range of suggestions. Feel free to choose your own. I would like you to focus on 



Art -  Stop the film at 1:14 and paint or draw your own picture of the Moon from Earth. Look at other famous paintings that include the moon, for example Starry night by Vincent Van Gogh, Fire, Full Moon by Paul Klee, Moon Light by Edvard Munch.


French - The film is in French. Learn some French space vocabulary, e.g. le casque - helmet.


PSHE - Was Tom right to go to the moon? What do you think the consequences might be?

Home Learning Week 2

Week 2 Home Learning Answers 

Below are documents for some of the activities set in week 2. These documents do also have the answers to quizzes that will be set in the coming weeks. Please ensure the answers are used to mark and guide learning appropriately. 

Home Learning General 

Below you will find a range of suggestion and some resources to support this. At this time please remember that every child is in the same position and the most important thing is mental health. Spend time together, bake, play board games, create your own quiz, teach your children life lessons.

Curriculum Links 



Please make sure that your child is reading every day when they are at home. As well as reading stories, this can be through reading newspaper reports, an online blog, a magazine, a review about a book/film, an information text about an animal or the world around them... anything that really captures your child's interest is great!

Encouraging your children to respond to what they have read through asking questions or through exciting activities such as drawing a picture and labelling it, creating a poster/factfile or writing a postcard/a letter to friends about what they have read etc. will help to aid their comprehension too, a skill which is vitally important!


"The more that you read, the more that you'll know. The more that you learn, the more places you will go!" - Dr Seuss. 


Write a persuasive piece about PGL - convince other schools to take their children there. Consider the benefits on children's well being, health, new opportunities and fun.

  • Alliteration

Write a diary entry about PGL - your entire week or your favourite day. 

Challenge - write this from the perspective of a teacher at PGL. 


Poster advertising PGL - images of your favourite activity. What is the best thing? 


Show children images - pobble 365 is a very good website to use with images and story/sentence starters - these are updated every day. Can children finish off the story using their imagination? Can they describe the setting, using success criteria such as: adjectives, similes, metaphors, powerful verbs, adverbs, 3ED sentences. Encourage children to be descriptive and write a lot about a little!


Reading and Comprehension

Use Twinkl to access a range of 60 second reads:



Handwriting is a vital skill which can be practised at home! How letters are formed can impact upon fluency when writing: try practising letters and then join them together to make words. You may want to combine handwriting with the statutory spellings below...…  


Please encourage children to log onto Spelling Shed daily and complete activities. 


Above (under GPS) are the list of words children are expected to be able to spell in their writing by the time they leave CTK. You may want to do 'Look-Cover-Say-Write-Check'  and then put the words into 3 silly sentences (without looking at them!) is important that children are given a go at putting the words into context!

Can the spellings be remembered the next day? What about the week later? 

Please see attachments under GPS near the top of the page - year 3 and 4 spelling list, years 5 and 6 spelling list, then two look cover say write check sheets too.

Could you design your own planet completely? Say how it is similar/different to another planet in the solar system. How far away is it from earth? Which planet is it closest to? Is it a gas giant? Children may choose to do a poster about the planet or do a persuasive piece to get someone else to move from earth to there!




Plan a menu for the week and help your family to cook. You may need to weigh out certain ingredients.

Can you learn how to cook a new meal and write a recipe for this to share with your friends?

Can you create your own invention using household items? Think about the purpose of the design - why have you created it? Then think about the  audience - who is using it? Why would they want to use it? Is it for children? Make your design suitable by drawing out an idea. Be as creative as possible! You could present your idea in a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style presentation to your parents - would they invest their money into your ideas?




RE - The RE PowerPoint for this topic has been uploaded. You can read the scripture, consider the questions and complete the tasks, alternatively adapt the task for something you see relevant to the scripture.
