Red Kite Class Home Learning

For any home learning enquiries from parents please email the Year 5 Team at This email will be checked between 8:50am and 3:20pm Monday to Friday.

During this school closure period, this is where your children will find all their work assigned to them. 

Through their purple mash log ins; they will receive a DAILY email from myself, informing them of the work they will need to complete. 

They can then complete the assigned work in the '2Write' program on Purple Mash, this will be set as a '2do' on their purple mash pages, daily. 


Please continue reading, practicing spellings and timetables every day! 

I have attached a document below with some helpful links for spellings, timetables and some free audio book sites as well. There is also a document with yoga and mindfulness activities on, to support both your child's and your own mental well being! 


Good luck to you all!

I am just the other end of the computer :)

  1. Create a ‘Cook Book’ including at least 5 recipes, these can be baked and cooked goods! (You could cook one of these recipes)
  2. Create a sculpture of a river creature or plant. You could use clay, salt dough, papier mache or any material of your choice.
