Year 5 English Home Learning

Week 8


Here is a writing lesson that has a familiar context for you. We learned about cold environments and the wildlife living there during our Shackleton Expedition topic.  

We’d love to see any writing you do on Classdojo. Remember you can private messages to us if you don’t want to show others.


Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. 

An extract from a very popular series of books with a selection of activities to respond to and think about.  

Let us know if it’s inspired you to read the whole of the book! 

Modal Verbs 

The lesson above will teach you about recognising modal verbs and how they are used in everyday life. You will have used them all the time but probably not known that they were called modal verbs.  


A refresher on homophone spelling. Remember: context is key.
