We welcome you to come and speak to us if you have any queries. Please leave a message with the staff member at the gate if you cannot see a member of the Year 5 team. Time is limited in the mornings and not particularly private, so the end of the day is preferable if it can wait.
This year, we will be setting home learning tasks on Google Classroom. We will also set school work on Google Classroom in the event of a class / school / local / national lock down.
In Year 5, pupils will be asked to complete reading, spelling, maths and another task (writing, topic, science etc).
Reading will be recorded in reading records and spelling will be recorded in spelling journals. Spelling books should be returned on a Monday
Maths will be set on Mathletics and 'other tasks' can be completed on paper and photographed or on a computer or tablet. Photos can be emailed to email@example.com or attached to Google Classroom submissions.

This term our Class Talk Topic is: “How has WWII impacted modern lives?” We will be working on this question in our topic lessons as we develop our understanding of WWII. We will be trying to answer this question through our home-based project which will be presented to the rest of the class.

These websites can be useful for helping with homework or for working from home.
Our favourite is Hit the Button!
A useful website with a range of subjects to look through.
Useful to practice your times tables at home. In the link is the speed test. How fast can you go?
We like to watch this in class, but you could try reading some of the articles when you are at home!
