Dear Year 5 Children and Parents,


In this section of the website, you will find a range of tasks and activities that give you the opportunity to continue your learning away from school. These will be uploaded daily and will follow the teaching curriculum that we would normally be using at school. You will also find links to useful websites that can be used as an additional learning tool for children and parents.


Tasks will include a daily English and Maths lesson alongside a weekly Topic activity. 

Reading Comprehension will also be set 3x a week. Reading expectations are exactly the same - 5x a week. Please feel free to share some of the excellent books you have read. For spellings, please choose 8-12 words a week from the Year 5/6 Statutory spelling list and practise these daily. 


Once you have completed a task - please email work in to the temporary email addresses above, in the form of either a photo, a word document or another appropriate alternative. It is essential that you complete the given tasks because we will not get this invaluable learning time back so please do your best. 


For other enquiries, not related to distance learning, please continue to use the year 5 email address.


Most importantly, we care greatly about your health and well-being so please feel free to send us exciting, positive news or updates about your time away from school. We will do the same.


Stay safe and we hope to see you soon.


Miss Bassett, Mr Waite, Miss Rodger and Mrs Hardy
