Year 5

Monday 1st June 2020

Hello everyone – I hope you have had a good half term week and enjoyed the lovely weather we have had.

Thank you for the photos and videos of your learning over the last few weeks. It makes me very proud to be your teacher, Year 5. It is really great to know you continue to work hard just as you did at school. It is also lovely to see your smiling faces as both Mrs Wilkinson and I miss you all very much. I hope that you have also enjoyed spending time with your family and taking part in fun activities together.

Here are just a few of the amazing learning photos I have received each week from year 5.

Class emails

We know that being at home with your children is the best and safest place for now but in the meantime we want to help you as best we can by keeping in touch for the duration of the closure. To offer support, you can email me with home learning questions on:

year5@cpa.dsat.education

I will be available during normal school hours (8.40 – 3.30 pm) and will check this every working day to answer any learning related queries you may have.

ONLINE SAFETY

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

Whole School Themed Learning Projects

As well as a daily maths, reading and writing activity, we will be uploading a whole school themed learning project every week for you to have fun completing. The learning projects will have a different whole school theme every week and will include many areas of the curriculum such as P.E., geography, history, music or art. As a school, we expect that at least 1 project activity be completed and evidenced by emailing a photo using the class email by Friday each week. I can’t wait to see all of the lovely activities that you complete. Click on the link to find out more about the Year 5 Learning Project for this week!
