Welcome to Year 5!
Welcome to the Year 5 page! Mrs Reed (5P) , Mrs Mackdermott (5T) , Mrs Johnson (Mon-Thurs 5L) and Mrs Palmer (Fri 5L) are all part of the team.
Due to the recent closure of the school, we will now be uploading work on our class page each Monday. Your child will have been sent home with a home-working book that they can complete this work in and an information sheet alongside this to explain the star-system. You will find a home-working mat attached, which details your child’s tasks for the week from Monday morning. This will be a range of tasks across the curriculum with guidelines on how to complete. We will also attach any corresponding worksheets. Thank you for your continued support.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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!
The organisation behind Times Tables Rock Stars has another online maths resources called Numbots which they have been kind enough to give us for free whilst school closures are in force. Numbots allows your child to develop their mental addition and subtraction skills by playing a range of exciting games. You can access this by typing 'Numbots' into Google and using your child's Times Table Rockstars usernames and passwords.
Please select the week you need from the tabs on the right.
