If your child is isolating, we will post or deliver a set of CGP workbooks for them to use during their period of isolation.   You can use these workbooks to do as much or as little as you like - we understand that different parents have different needs in terms of their own work and responsibilities.  We would aim for the children to do a page from each book a day, but recognise that this may not always be possible.  Children should bring the books back with them when they return to school, thank you.

Please keep the children reading each day using the books on Active Learn or books you have at home - we can't send reading books home while the children are isolating, sorry.

We have listed below some maths and English activities your child can try while they are waiting for their workbooks to arrive - these should mostly be revision activities.   If your child has special educational needs, you may need to dip into a different year group and your child's teacher can advise on this if you email them or contact the school office by phone.

Some of the activities below are printable but we have tried in the main to make them accessible whether you have access to a printer or not.

Year Five 

Maths activities to try - 

  • Roll a dice 5 times to make a five-digit number e.g 34,561 .  Do this six times to make six numbers.  Put them in order from the smallest to the largest.  Can you write the numbers in words?  Now try again, but this time make 6 digit numbers.
  • Using the numbers you made with the dice, try rounding them to the nearest 10, 100, 1000, 10000
  • Using the numbers you made, choose two and add them together?  Make different pairs to add until you have completed ten addition calculations.  Can you add three of them together?
  • Using the numbers you made with the dice, choose two and subtract the smaller one from the larger one.  Make different pairs of numbers until you have completed ten subtraction calculations.
  • Find out what all the prime numbers are (up to 100)  and write them on a poster to help you remember
  • Find out what all the squared numbers are (up to 12 x 12) and write them on a poster to help you remember
  • Tell the time at different points in the day.  How long is it until your favourite TV programme?  How long does it last?  What is the time in 12hr clock and 24hr clock?
