Self-isolation tasks

Dear Parents/Carers,

In the unfortunate event that your child has to self-isolate at home, it has been suggested that they continue to produce work across the curriculum if they are well enough. As teachers will be unable to provide supervision, the following sites have been suggested to ensure that your child can continue to make progress from home:

We are currently focusing on Place Value and mental maths in Maths, diary and narrative writing in Literacy, USA Geography, Materials and their Properties in Science and Sikhism in RE. The Oak Academy link has fantastic video lessons alongside little quizzes and short, yet engaging tasks.

Alongside these sites, the children should read daily for c. 20 minutes using bug club and they could also practise spellings using Ed Shed. Pupil logins are noted in reading diaries.

Should your child wish to challenge themselves, they may wish to create projects around these questions:

What is each of the states in the USA famous for?

Which musicians play “Blues” and what are their best songs?

Which substances in the kitchen will dissolve in water?

Who was Guru Nanak and why do Sikhs still remember him?

If you were given £100, how could you invest it wisely to make more money?


We hope that this will provide enough to keep your child stimulated and ensure that they feel confident about their return to school.


Kind regards,


The Year 5 Team
