Year 5 2020 - 2021

Home Learning
Hello all, I know that the next few weeks will be very different from what we would normally expect but for those working from home, tasks will be set for you using our online learning platform: Google Classrooms. Everyone has been given a login and we have practised using this in class. A helpful logging in sheet has been sent to you. If there are any problems, please do not hesitate to contact us.
We will upload new tasks each morning for you to complete throughout the day. These tasks will be set using: video links, links to websites and worksheets saved into the file labelled with the date. Some tasks will require the use of a screen and some may be completed on paper if you prefer.
We are going to send everyone's passwords through for you to have another copy in case some of you are missing any, as some tasks may be set using the resources we use both in school and for homework.
The tasks we upload can be completed on Google Classrooms- in docs so that we can mark them or it can be completed on paper and an adult can send a picture of that into school for us to see using
A timetable for home learning will be sent which may be used to support timings throughout the day.
Thank you everyone for all your hard work- we hope to see you all again soon.

Class Prayers

Lunchtime: For what we are about to receive, may the Lord make us truly thankful,


Hometime: Hold on to what is good, even if it's a handful of earth.
Hold on to what you believe, even if it's a tree that stands by itself.
Hold on to what you must do, even if it's a long way from here.
Hold on to your life, even if it's easier to let go.
Hold on to my hand, even if I've gone away from you.


Unicef Rights and Responsibility: Article 27

Children have the right to a standard of living that is good enough to meet their physical and mental needs. Governments should help families and guardians who cannot afford to provide this, particularly with regard to food, clothing and housing.


School Council

Our council representatives were chosen by the class in a democratic vote. Each child performed a speech to persuade the class to vote for them. Well done to everyone who put their name forward. Our winners were: Grace & Kyle!


Golden Apples

We have promised to try our best to gain our 5 leaves for : Service, Community, Justice, Friendship and Creation.

Children's University

In Year 5, we gain credits through attending after school clubs, participating in sports teams for the school, jobs we do in school and also by having our passports stamped at learning destinations for example: museums and clubs outside of school. Passports are available to purchase from the school office.

The correct swimming kit is needed for pupils to be allowed into the swimming pool.
