Important Message About White Rose Maths

Starting from the unit called 'Summer Term - Week 3 (w/c 4th May)' , White Rose Maths are no longer providing the worksheet part of the lesson for free.  However, we have begun a school subscription with them which gives teachers access to this resource which we are then able to share with you.  Please select the White Rose tab on the right to access these.  

Get in contact with us!

We would really like to see what you’ve been up to at home. If you would like to, send 1 email per week to with some photos attached, work, videos etc. showing us how you are working from home. At the end of the week, we will collate some of them and put them on the Year 5 blog in our new gallery- What Year 5 have been up to at home! 

Handwriting Practice

We are part of the Letter-Join handwriting scheme and any of our pupils wishing to practise their handwriting at home can login to the Letter-Join website on tablets as well as desktop and laptop computers.  There are easy to use resources which will support the development of joined, neat handwriting.  Please see the document below for access details.
