I hope you have enjoyed a lovely last week of year 5.
I have really enjoyed receiving all your learning photographs this week again. Thank you Year 5 – you have all worked so hard. I have also been checking on our class leaderboard for TTRockstars and it’s been great to see how many coins you have earned. Don’t forget to keep on practising your skills by playing regularly.
I have especially enjoyed the VIEWPOINTS home learning projects you have completed this week which used your English, art, design and technology and PSHE skills. I have been very impressed with your maths skills, story writing and biographies this week too. During all of the home learning projects you have learnt so much new KNOWLEDGE, SKILLS and VOCABULARY.
Well done Year 5!
Thank you to all of the continued learning support Year 5 have received from home since March – we could not have got through this time without it. Mrs Wilkinson and I really appreciate it and know it will really help everyone when we are all back together again at school in September. We are so missing you all and cannot wait to see you all learning together again.
We would like to wish you a lovely, restful summer break to be refreshed and ready for year 6!
Here are just a few of the amazing learning photos I have received each week from year 5.
From September, our new class email will be:
Children may well be using the internet more than usual at the moment so it is a good time to remind and emphasise how to keep safe online. CEOP have produced lots of great resources which parents/carers can access on their website: www.thinkyouknow.co.uk
