Year 5 Home Learning
Herne Junior School has an allocated teacher to help support all the children who are having to learn at home.
Mrs Marlow (L.Marlow@hernejunior.com) is available to help and support all the families and pupils who need them through this difficult time. She is available to discuss any aspects of work that the children may be struggling with , listen to children read, deliver CGP workbooks (if digital devices are not accessible) and help motivate our young home-learners.

English - Writing
- Each writing unit contains a sequence of 5 lessons to be completed in order
- Each session should take no more than 30 mins to complete
- Tasks are written with easy to follow instructions for parents / child
- Each lesson has a simple explanation and examples to get started
- All units are based on texts that can be found online, or extracts shared within the unit
Parents, carers and siblings can help by reading the extracts/text aloud to the child; collecting interesting words and phrases on paper / post-its as they read; talking to the child about their ideas before they write. All these instructions are within the unit aimed at parents. (HIAS English Team).
English - Reading
How much and how often children read really matters. During a time of school closure, ‘just reading’ is one of the best ways to keep children learning and growing.
Once children have mastered decoding through their phonics work, reading as much and as widely as possible will ensure that they continue to develop, not just academically, but emotionally too. And the best way to improve reading is the most enjoyable – reading! As the reading scientist Mark Seidenberg puts it, “The serious way to improve reading – how well we comprehend a text and, yes, speed and efficiency – is this: Read. As much as possible. Mostly new stuff.”
Encourage children to read stories, non-fiction and poetry . Encourage parents to listen to their child reading aloud, even if they are in Key Stage 2. Enjoy talking about the books they read and discuss unfamiliar words. Reading aloud will help children to build their fluency, so that when they read silently the ‘voice in their head’ is fluent too.
