Year 5

Welcome to the Year 5 class page
Finch Class - Miss Dunk
Firecrest Class - Miss Nelmes
Firefly Class - Miss Smith
 
Throughout the week, we will provide an English and Maths task daily.
There will also be some weekly tasks, including: grammar, spellings, handwriting, comprehension and arithmetic.
 
Along with this, there will be a Topic activity each Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Then, if you want to be even busier, there will be Science, PSHC, RE, E-safety and Spanish to explore.
 
You do not need to print everything or even anything - unless you prefer to have the sheets in front of you. We're happy to see your fabulous learning hand written or put onto the class blog. 
 
Home Learning
We understand that everybody's circumstances are different and that there will be days (or even weeks) when you cannot complete all the tasks available. Please have a go at the tasks and activities which suit your home learning; all we ask is to see the amazing, fantastic work you are able to complete on the blog.
 
We’ve all had to adapt to new ways of learning and you’ve done an amazing, fantastic job of learning during this time. It’s definitely been a strange and challenging time and it’s okay if you feel a bit wobbly and worried at the moment. But remember, we are here for each other! We may not be in the same building but that doesn’t mean we can’t be there for each other. The class blogs are our means of communication with you so please post and comment as much as you can...
 
 
We would encourage families to discuss how they will manage learning at home by:
 
1) Creating a schedule together about what home learning will be like.
2) Looking at available resources; use the website and blog to prioritise some tasks for each day.
3) Planning time to sit down and share learning; what has been achieved, what was challenging and what could be continued tomorrow.
4) Having fun! Include lots of creative and physical activities and ensure that there is time to play.
5) Plan a reward system.

Website Layout Changes
From tomorrow, your daily and weekly activities will be posted as separate subjects.
 
So far we have been posting your tasks in weekly folders however, to make it easier to navigate and find, we will now post your tasks into subject folders. So, when you want to complete an English task: head to the English folder. Or if you fancy some Science: head to the Topic and Foundation Subjects folder. Every daily or weekly task will be dated so look carefully to know which task to complete. Hopefully, this will help finding your tasks that little bit easier.
