Year 5 2019 - 2020

Home Learning (see links at the bottom of this page!)

 Listen to Harry Potter and The Philosophers Stone!!!! We were upto chapter 6 in class! I'm currently up to chapter 11!

Friday 3rd April

Hello Year 5! It's the end of another week of home learning and again I'm SO PLEASED to see your progress on IXL this week. I can see that you are aiming for 100% on each task which is brilliant! I've also set some new tasks (see Learning From Home 30/3/20 at the bottom of this page) and have added a star next to them on IXL as suggested activities, making it easier for you to locate each task. 

I'm going to choose a weekly star of the week based on what I can see through IXL so this week's star of the week is....... Kyle! Well done, you've been on IXL every day working hard, 20 Dojos for you!! 

I've been uploading new activites and websites for you to explore each day and I hope that you are finding them useful. I was thrilled to find Harry Potter and The Philosopher's Stone for free on audible this week as I know we were all enjoying reading it in class.

I'd love to see what you've been up to so please ask an adult to send pictures of your home learning to the school office: or via Twitter @stoswaldscep

Remember to smile, be happy, keep safe and wash your hands!

I really miss teaching you all!! crying

Have a fantastic Easter!
