Year 5

Year 5- Spring two 2021

We have one week of remote teaching left to go before we are all reunited again.  You have all been fantastic Year 5;  Mrs Mumford and I are both so proud of you. Let’s make this last week a GREAT one.


We have WORLD BOOK day to enjoy on Thursday March 4th and I can’t wait to see how creative you are all going to be. (I have emailed out the activities you can choose from, so that you can get bits and pieces together). We would love to put some of your work on display in school, so do your best to make yours amazing and bring it in on the week commencing March 8th.

Check out this brilliant Word Book Day song by MC Grammar:

Keeping Fit in Lockdown

I  downloaded a free app last weekend called ‘Home Court Basketball’. It’s so much fun! You can do challenges with a ball or why not try the reaction challenge.  Here’s me doing it. Can you beat my PB?

Online learning from 06.01.21

We will be following the timetable below whether your child is accessing learning from home or in the key worker / vulnerable provision in school.

If your child is attending the key worker / vulnerable provision please can you ensure they bring their paper work packs with them every day.

The work packs you collect have everything in for 2 weeks, please keep them safe and in order. You need to have them available every session, along with all resources (pen, pencil ruler etc) in case of any unexpected changes.  I shall email every evening to let you know which resources are required for that day. In cases where teaching has to be adapted (eg extra sessions added in due to children not understanding, I shall email work).

In addition to the zoom sessions with independent tasks, children have spellings, TTRockstarts and Bug Club to complete daily.

Returning / collecting work packs

Dates for work packs to be returned / collected

Monday, 8th March 2021 when all children return to school.

Zoom reminders

Can you remember how to unmute yourself to answer my questions? (hold down the space bar until you have finished speaking)

Can you remember how to show me your thumbs up? (click the reactions face and select thumbs up emoji)

Can you remember how to send me a question? (click the speech bubble and type your question in the chat)

REMEMBER – there is an expectation that learning behaviours during a zoom session should be the same as if the children are in a classroom lesson at school.


For each session, you will need to log back in using the link provided in your email and wait in the waiting room, until I begin the meeting. I suggest logging in 5 minutes before we are due to start each session as we need to be prompt and stick to timings. If you are late, I may not see that you are in the waiting room as I will be focused on teaching. (I will try though)

We will be taking an informal register of who is participating in each zoom session.

We have  kept the order of lessons the same to provide some normality and consistency. We will follow this timetable every day.

8:15 – 9:15 am– either EGPS or Tough Ten plus BUG CLUB.
