Class 5

Home Learning

To further and improve home-learning in Year 5, I am going to ask you too look at some of the other subjects we learn about at school. Each day will be a particular subject and I will give you a skills based activity to consolidate what you already know or apply these skills to a problem. 

As you have been doing already, there will be a Mini-Maths, Reading, Maths and SPaG activity each day from Monday to Friday, with the extra lessons as follows:

Monday - Geography

Tuesday - PE

Wednesday - Science

Thursday - History

Friday - Art

Keep watching the daily videos for the details of each task as I know this is proving really helpful for you guys. Keep up all of the hard work, it is fantastic to see and hear how you are all getting on, so please keep the e-mails coming. 

If this is unclear or you need any further help then please contact me :)

Morning Guys,

Happy Easter!

No specific learning tasks today, however two things I'd like you all to do:

1. Spend some time talking, thinking, reflecting about what is happening in the world at the moment.

2. See how many smiles you can share

Have a fantastic weekend :)

No Video on Easter Monday, so I post again on Tuesday 14th April 2020

Stay Safe, Stay Positive
