Ideas for writing 

This website has loads of cool, random pictures.  Use these as a stimulus for writing.   Underneath each picture is some ideas of how you could use them.  In school, we use these alot and just ask children to write a range of texts using these as initial ideas.

This is one I am still exploring myself but has some great video clips and ideas on how to use them to promote literacy.

Lots of authors are reading books online.  This website will give you the details you need.

Borrowbox - a great way to borrow books online through the local library.  You need to be a member of the library but can do this online following the links below.

Mathletics - this website has a cost implication, however, does offer a 48 hour free trial.  Not actually tried it but it has very good reviews.

Some good lessons with activities and practise questions.  Be warned – this website doesn’t seem to say what age it is aimed at - some might be to tricky at the moment for Year 5.  If it is – try another!

Some free samples for this website.  Again, just watch for the age each activity is aimed at.  If they are too hard move on to another!

If you fancy another "trip out"  you can visit the British Museum in London has a fantastic website and you can see many of their artefacts online.  It has exhibitions linked to our topics on Ancient Egypt and Anglo Saxons (check out the Sutton Hoo exhibit).  Plus it has dinosaurs which has nothing to do with any topics we cover but is still amazingly cool if you ask me!


Other key websites:

Blue Peter Badge Project

There are lots of ways to earn a Blue Peter Badge!  Why not look at the criteria and make a family project out of it.  Many of the badges you need to apply for through the post which at this time is not easy.  You could collect together a project that you make during this time and send it off when the self isolation period is complete.
