Our teachers are Mrs Freestone (Monday and Tuesday) and Mrs Stafford (Wednesday - Friday) and our teaching assistants are Mrs Fixter and Mrs Lambert.

Home Learning

Welcome to the Year 5 home learning page. The children were sent home with a book to work from so they can do the tasks set in this. We will add links for those able to print out. If you can't please do not worry, the children can do any writing and maths answers in the book. Make sure they write the date in their book like they do in school. 


Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. If you can send us any photos of the children's work we will put these on the class page to develop a gallery. 


Please contact us if you have any questions

Keep practising your times tables, we are still doing our mini tests in Maths lessons and I am so proud at how well everyone is progressing. If anyone needs a password reminder send me an email and I will get back to you asap.

Monday 23rd November

Good morning Year 5! See the work for today below, please copy the work into your books or print out the sheet and stick into your books.



For our maths lessons today we are looking at square a cube numbers, we have these in our daily 10 everyday so you have seen them before.

Lesson 1

Let’s start with looking at square numbers.

A square number is the result when a number has been multiplied by itself. For example, 25 is a square number because it’s 5 lots of 5, or 5 x 5. This is also written as 52 (“five squared”). 

Lesson 2

Cube numbers.

A cube number is the result when a number has been multiplied by itself twice. For example, 8 is a cube number because it’s 2 x 2 x 2 (2 multiplied by itself twice); this is also written as 23 (“two cubed”). 


The next force we are looking at is water resistance. Follow this link to read the information and watch the video clips.

Can you design your own streamlined boat?

Good Morning Class 5!


Whilst working from home today please can you have a go at the bitesize maths lesson following the link below. We have done lots of work on rounding and so you should feel confident completing this at home.


We started our 'able' spellings yesterday. Complete the worksheet below and keep practising.


Following on from our work yesterday in Science looking at night and day, we are going to be researching sundials. Look at the sundial picture below and see if you can answer the questions, ask an adult what they know or use the internet to find out more. 

If the sun comes out today you could have a go at your own shadow drawings and see how they change through the day, see the example below.

If children are working from home due to covid restrictions please follow the link below for lessons on bitesize.


Also keep reading and practise your times tables on TTRockstars!

Year 5 Routines



Year 5 start school at 8:45am and finishing at 3:15pm. An adult from the Year 5 team will meet the children at the large gate on George Street.  We will then check their temperature using a thermometer to the wrist.  When the children arrive in the school building, they will wash their hands and use the hand sanitizer provided.  This will be repeated throughout the day.


Mrs Freestone (class teacher Mon,Tues) and Mrs Stafford (class teacher Wed, Thurs, Fri)

Mrs Fixter and Mrs Lambert (teaching assistants)


PE will be on a Tuesday and the children are to come in school on this day in their PE kit: school jumper, plain navy/black/grey jogging trousers or shorts and a plain white/navy/black/grey T-shirt with trainers is expected. PE will be done outside, weather permitting. We will review the additional indoor PE session over the term, alongside government guidelines.


Your child will choose a reading book. When they change their book, they must place it in the quarantine box before they go back into circulation. 

Learning and well-being

The main focus for the first half term is to help settle your child back into school after such a long period out of education. There will be many opportunities to share and discuss their lock-down experiences, worries and support with gaps in learning.

Our topic this term is ‘We are going to War time Europe’.  We have lots of exciting learning planned across all subjects linked to this topic.


Due to the school following guidelines to ensure the safety of the whole school community, communication will be different to what we are used to with parents/carers. If you have any questions or need to pass on information please do not hesitate to contact me via email: or  and we will get back to you at the nearest opportunity.

Finally, we want to reassure you and your child that it is normal to feel anxious about the return to school. We are doing everything possible to make sure the transition back is as smooth as possible and we know the children will be excited to see their friends and start learning again.

Almost half term already!

The children have settled fantastically in year 5 and have already produced some amazing work. We are learning all about World War 2 this term so look out for photographs of work that will be posted soon.

Seesaw Information for parents




Here at Lovers’ Lane we are continually looking at ways to make learning more accessible and engaging for the children and one of the ways in which we would like to do this is through our use of technology in the classroom. When using technology it can be difficult to capture the work the children do so we would like to set up accounts for the children using an app called Seesaw. 

Seesaw (, is a secure online journal where students can document and reflect on what they are learning in class. Your child will be able to add the things we work on (including photos, videos, worksheets, drawings and voice recordings) to their Seesaw journal.  

In order for your child to use Seesaw, the app needs your child’s name. This is so that teachers are able to assign work and so that your child is able to associate work like their photos, videos or voice recordings with their account. Seesaw only uses this information to provide the service and doesn’t advertise in Seesaw, create profiles of students, or share or sell your child’s personal information or journal content. It only adds their name to the teachers’ class list. You can read more about their strong privacy promises here:

Under an EU law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in order for your child to use Seesaw, we must get your consent. As a school, we are incredibly excited by the opportunities Seesaw will provide. Its use here at Lovers’ Lane will help us to continue to make the curriculum more exciting and engaging for all children. 

You will receive a message by text with a link to a permission form. Please complete this as soon as possible. If you do not have internet access please contact your child’s teacher for a paper permission slip. If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to email me:


Kind regards, 


Mrs L Williams (Computing Lead)
