SCHOOL CLOSURE – MARCH 2020 onwards
ONLINE LEARNING CLASSROOM AVAILABLE
Due to the enforced school closure I have set up an online learning classroom for Year 5.
Please visit Easyclass.com and click on the main heading, then ‘Students: enter access code’ which I have sent out via Parentapps, if you have not received it, please email me at email@example.com and I’ll send it to you.
You will be asked to enter your name, an email and a password, also you’ll need to enter male or female as Easyclass will create an avatar for you.
I have assigned some Easter English, Maths, RE, Fun Home Learning and an Easter Egg competition to keep you ‘eggcited’ over the holidays!
There will always be a weekly, if not daily yolk (sorry joke) to keep you entertained and we can chat online too.
I shall be posting online lessons weekly from 20th April 2020 based on our summer term topics for you to have a try at home.
Stay safe Year 5 and I miss you, Mrs B
Welcome to Year 5!
Class Teacher – Mrs R Battersby
Learning Support Assistant – Mrs L Jones
Information for Parents/Carers
Pupils have brought home a pack of work to keep them busy while school is closed. They also have their log-in to Bug Club and Purple Mash. Also why not have a go at these on-line lessons.
And practice your tables too, using these resources.There’s also a Parents’ Guide to help your mums and dads.
It is important that children remain active while staying at home over the coming weeks. Get Set 4 PE will be tweeting an active task, for the whole family to complete, for each day that schools are closed. To view the daily task simple follow @GetSet4PE
Here are some nice ideas for activities you can try at home while schools are closed.
Create your own time capsule for your future self to look back at to see what you were doing through this historic time.
Your child will be given homework which will enhance the curriculum that they are following in school and will help to improve their learning. We greatly appreciate parental support and encourage parents to become involved in their children’s learning. Research has shown that support from home significantly improves a child’s achievement in school.
Spellings will be given on a Monday to be completed by Friday for a test.
10 Minute Maths, 10 Minute English books will all be given on a Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday.
To help your child develop a love of reading, all children are given daily opportunities to read either during Shared Reading, Independent Reading or Reading for Pleasure sessions. Your child is encouraged to bring books of their own choice or choose a book from our class library as well as bring their school reading book and reading record to school every day.
All children will read with the class teacher at least once a week. The expectation is that your child should read for 20 minutes per day to develop their pace, fluency and understanding of a range of texts. Using Accelerated Reader quizzes, your child will complete a short comprehension quiz after they have completed reading their home reading book.
Bug Club – your child is able to read a variety of books online. Individual books are allocated to your child’s library. Please encourage your child to read these books at home and discuss and answer both the texts and the comprehension ‘Bug’ questions with them.
The 2014 curriculum for Mathematics states that children are expected to know ALL times table facts up to 12 x 12 by the end of Year 4. Multiplication tables will, therefore, be part of the mathematics homework each week.
Year 5 will have PE on THURSDAYS this half term. Please ensure that your child has their kit in school every week
