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:

After studying how crime and punishment has changed in Britain from the Roman Era through to Victorian times, we've come a long way! At no point so far has there been mention of the people that spring to mind when we think about crime and punishment - the police! That is because until 1829.

Before a police force was established, the streets of London were governed by the Bow Street Runners.

Your task is to research and present the changes in Policing from the introduction of the Bow Street Runners, through the establishment of the police force. You may want to explain how the police in the early stages were very different to what we know of the police today.
