Dear parents and pupils, 

We hope you are all well and managing the work that we are setting.  Thank you for all of your hard work so far!  It has been so pleasing to see lots of excellent work sent through the UKS2 email and on Purple Mash! 

We will continue to host our daily zoom sessions as a whole year group to instruct and guide you through the learning for that day.  In addition, some of our sessions will be concentrating on more specific areas, such as maths fluency or grammar, for instance.  We are also incorporating some loom videos to teach lessons which we hope will be helpful.  We will continue to use this web page to upload work into the Home Learning Folder below.  The most important thing to open first is the Weekly Timetable as this sets out the work for each day with links.  We will also use Purple Mash regularly to set work, so please check this and we will give the children feedback on this work.  

If you have any questions or worries, please email us using the following email address:  This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Best wishes

The Year 5 team
