Year Five

Welcome to the home learning and information page for Year 5, where you will find steps on how to access work if your child is unfortunately unable to attend school. I will also update this page each half term with documents of subject specific learning that we will cover in class. This will help your child and also your own understanding if they are at home.

Purple Mash

Work will be set everyday as a 2do on the Purple Mash website. The work that is done in school will be titled as SMART and this will have every subject on for that particular day. On this SMART 2do, look out for purple text as these are to provide extra instructions, links to follow and other 2dos to look at. I have attached our timetable below so that the children know what subjects they will be doing on each day. The majority of the activities will ask your child to write down answers.

Please follow this link to access Purple Mash: 

If this link does not work then please follow these instructions:

  1. Go to the school website and click on the 'information' tab.
  2. Choose the 'E-safety' option and you will find a link that takes you straight to the St. John's access area of Purple Mash.
  3. Type in the username and password that has been given to your child.
  4. When logged on, they should click on the '2do' tab and scroll through the list to find that days SMART. 

Each day, your child can also access Doodle Maths, Doodle Spell and Times Tables Rock Stars to help their learning.

If there are any questions you have about this work, then please let me know.

Many kind regards,
