Week Two - 30th March 2020
Dear Year 5,
We hope you are all now settling into a bit of a routine, and staying safe at home. The weather last week was amazing - more of that sunshine please!
By now, we are sure you have completed the (optional) activities that we put on the website, so we have updated some of the sections with some additional activities to occupy yourselves. Remember, it is now the Easter holidays, so go easy on yourselves and give yourselves lots of brain and exercise breaks.
We are all doing well - keeping fit and active, eating well and focusing on the positives, even though we would do anything to get back to our busy Springfield lives with you all!
Wishing you and your families well - keep smiling!
Miss Torrance, Miss Landi & Miss Beddow.
Dear Year 5 Children and Parents,
Welcome to our ‘Home Learning’ page.
As, for the foreseeable future, we will be unable to continue our learning together at school, we have set up this page to support your learning from home.
It is really important that we all continue to learn, keep up our routine (as best as possible) and keep active during these changing times to keep our minds and bodies healthy.
Please check these pages regularly for information regarding home learning.
We would just like to take this opportunity to say a huge thank you to all our parents for your continued support, and to the children for their resilience and good humour. We wish everyone a safe and quick return to normality (as soon as possible we hope).
Year 5 Teachers
Children can use these websites on a regular basis to keep skills sharp in Reading, Writing and Maths.
Parents - please note that passwords for the Spelling Shed, along with other sites, are stuck into the inside cover of your children's homework diary. If your child was absent from school on the last week, passwords have been are stapled to their target booklets and can be collected from the school entrance.
This website has a learning pack for Year 5 children to download and work on at home.
Why not continue your writing adventure by using these amazing daily stimuli?!
