The safety of the children and their loved ones is of utmost importance over the coming weeks.

We also feel that it is vital that children continue to develop their learning where possible.

The timetable below offers a suggestion of the home learning activities that we recommend while school is closed. This timetable focuses on English and maths core skills related to Year 5 and 6. Also included are activities linked to our foundation subjects to ensure your child is offered a broad and balanced curriculum, just as they would do at school.

Blue text = links to websites and documents

Please complete all tasks in the exercise books provided. A copy of your TT Rockstars login, Spelling Shed Login and Epic Reading information is stuck into the front cover for your reference.

 You will not need to print anything that has been attached to home learning tasks.

 History:

During the last few months, the changes that have occurred and  the impact they have had on our lives make you part of history.  In years to come, you will tell the future generations all about this time in your life.

Your task is to create a memoir of something positive that has come from the 'lockdown' situation. This might mean time spent with family, a particular home-learning activity you've enjoyed, or playing in the garden during the heatwave - you choose!

You may choose to create a piece of artwork - a drawing or painting, to write a newspaper article, a diary entry, or a letter for someone to read in the future. You could create a dance, or record a clip acting as a historian or news reporter.

There are endless possibilities and I'm excited to see how you choose to reflect on this situation.

Don't forget to send what you've done to your class email address so we can see what you've created.

PHSE:

Congratulations on completing what has been a very unusual school year! To finish our PHSE online sessions, we thought it would be nice to reflect on the year and think about moving onto a new challenge in either Year 6 or Year 7.

Year 5 - there is a booklet that you can download here to complete over the Summer and bring into school with you in September if you wish. Some of you will have  a new teacher and some will have the same teacher but this booklet is to help us understand if and how things have changed for you since lockdown began. e.g. if you have a new pet, if you have moved house or if you are worried about different things now.

Year 6 - you are all moving on to a new and exciting time in your lives. It will be one of the biggest changes that you will ever undertake, but it is also one that can provide amazing opportunities for each and every one of you. We would like you to read the following leavers' poem. Your task is to write a poem of your own - you may wish to copy some of the ideas from the original poem or you can write your own from scratch. It's a great way to put your emotions onto paper.

Feel free to email your work to us - we would love to read it!

 

Have a wonderful summer Class 10.

We are so proud of you all.

Year 5, we look forward to seeing you in September.

Year 6, we will miss you all very much, good luck on your exciting adventure to secondary school. We can't wait for your visits when you tell us all about it. Always believe in yourselves, you can do anything you put your minds to!
