Copmanthorpe Primary School

Welcome to the Year 5 page

Updated: 3rd April 5pm 

We will be using this page to share tasks and activities for your child to complete whilst school is closed to most children.


If your child is feeling anxious during this uncertain time, here are some activities to help: Year 5 Wellbeing Pack

Easter Holiday Activities

Easter Menu and Activity packs are now available. We would like the children to complete some of the Easter Activity Menu ideas but the rest of the work is optional.

We do not expect children to spend all day working through the various activities; children can choose the tasks they complete and would ideally work in short bursts. 

Children should all access their weekly spellings, like normal, on Spelling Shed, practise their times tables on TTRockstars and be reading everyday. 

They can continue to use Purple Mash and ClassroomSecrets Kids. Logins for both websites have been stuck in children's planners. There is no work set on here for them to complete over Easter.

Happy Easter to you all!

SeeSaw Online Learning

As a school, we've decided that we’re going to use Seesaw to share our learning. We will be uploading the work weekly to SeeSaw. This will also be available as pack to collect from the School office or to download from here after the Easter Holidays. 

Year 5 all have access to SeeSaw already; you need to log in using your Chromebook username and password. An example of this would be: and Bluerat7.
