Dear Year 5 

We have updated our Class Learning page and hope you continue to be motivated to achieve your best and embrace all challenges eagerly.  

We hope you are all keeping safe and are being super helpful for your parents at home. As an extra challenge, why not try and spread some kindness around your home, by doing lots of helpful jobs around your home and reminding those around you how much you appreciate them.

Please continue to use the home learning White Rose maths link  as your main maths learning. There are some additional power points that are added weekly  at the bottom of the web page for additional practise should you require that.  

Much love to you all from Mrs Khan and Mrs Roberts!! :-) 

This section of our class page is is dedicated to home learning. In support of all those children who are currently staying at home, we shall be posting a weekly bank of learning activities. Below, we have provided links to familiar websites such as TT Rockstars and MyMaths, which can be accessed daily using the individual login details provided. Additionally, we will upload reading, writing and maths materials onto this page.

It is important to note that we have been realistic in terms of what we are expecting from the children during their time out of the classroom. Most of the content provided will be in line with our current curriculum planning, thus enabling a certain degree of continuity away from the classroom. We are mindful of the varied circumstances at present, so we have worked hard to balance what can be achieved at home without specific equipment and teaching expertise. Establishing a routine can help but we also know that being able to pick and choose activities is equally helpful. Below is plenty of maths and English work to keep the children's learning going.

School is closed for most pupils from the end of Friday 20th March. This page now has details of our HOME LEARNING work. We would like all children to make sure My Maths is up to date and to get on with TT Rockstars as much as possible. Do lots of reading. 

We recognise that people will have different access to technology and different amount of adult support.  Do what you can, when you can and try not to worry!

BELOW are weekly activities:

Maths: Home Learning White Rose Maths 

Please note: The worksheets for your daily maths lessons are attached in the folders below (in the weekly folder), along with answers to check your progress. 

**NEW IMPORTANT NOTE:  There has been some duplication of some of the White Rose Maths content.  If you find that you have already completed the work, please find within our weekly folder an 'Alternative maths plan'.  

Note 18.6.20 - Please complete the maths assessments at your own pace and continue to use White Rose, even if there is repetition because this is your revision for your assessments.

In year 5, pupils are expected to complete weekly homework. Homework will be set every Wednesday in Spelling Homework books and this is due in the following Monday please. In addition pupils are expected to change their reading book and read regularly at home. 

PE is every Wednesday and Thursday.  Please ensure your child has labelled PE kit in school.  In KS2 we prefer children to wear trainers rather than plimsolls as they give better support.
