Year Five Working from Home
It’s the final week, please check the Transition Area of the home learning section for transition tasks! (Click Link)
One thing I forgot to say, you will have 2 weeks + the summer holidays to do the transition activities so don’t rush; your new teachers will want to see it done nicely! 🙂

A message from the teachers
Welcome back to ‘school’ everyone. I hope you’ve all had enough time away from doing school work to have recharged your batteries sufficiently for some more online lessons. It was great speaking to all those children and their parents that dared answer the phone to their teacher- we will be doing it all again at some point over the next few weeks.
The website is the same as it was before the break: easy to use, the same headings, comments page, sub-headings for each topic and your work displayed. If you need any assistance, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us. We will answer any of your questions- just use the comments page. Email your work in to us using the link on this page; the more work we receive, the happier we become.
As always, stay safe and look after yourselves and your families as this is the most important thing you can do whilst away from school.
Suggested timetable for home learning
We appreciate home learning is different for everyone depending on your family and work circumstances at the moment. Any work you can do is going to be beneficial for you children – we would prioritise reading and number facts. We have put together a proposed timetable se if you have children in different year groups and are wanting to provide some structure to your day you can use it for guidance. However, please do regard it as guidance and do what works for you.
We will put suggested activities for each day on the website. Please use them as and when you can. Below is a generalised timetable for the whole school; we will be using something similar, but will be continuing as we were before the holidays. Any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
If you cannot access the Maths online please contact school using email@example.com to ask your child’s class teacher for advice. We will review after a couple of weeks. Please also continue to use Mathletics and TT Rockstars.
If you have 3 minutes, check out this poem that Taha found; it’s great. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y1XtWIpNjts

Topic and Other Afternoon Activities
We will be attempting to make a start on our Anglo Saxons and Viking Topic. Please also follow this link for other suggested learning.
There are lots of great ideas across the internet to keep kids active at home and we have provided links to these below such as Joe Wicks workouts and Cosmic Yoga. However,these are not physical education lessons, and we all know the importance of physical education to a child’s development and self-confidence. Therefore we will provide 2 links to Physical Education lessons here. Learning and practicing the fundamental skills of agility, balance, coordination and strength are so important.

- The sessions will run for 15-20 minutes and involve some of the content which they teach on a daily basis in schools during “non-lockdown / normal times”. The content comes from the “Kids” classes which they teach to Key Stage 2 children, but it should also be fine for KS1 children to watch alongside their parent / carer / siblings.
