Monday 6th July

Good morning Year 5! I hope you all had a good weekend! smiley

This week, I've added a Home Learning Timetable for you to work through. For maths, I've added a Learning by Questions  code. We've used this website all year in school so you all should be familar with it at home. Go to the LBQ website and add the code from the timetable. It was great to see some of you logging in from home and completing the activity! 

For English, I've added daily spellings and different activities from the Home Learning Project document (see the bottom of the page). 

I've left the afternoon on the timetable blank to allow you to choose what you'd prefer to do. For ideas for your afternoons, have a read through the Home Learning Project. 

Please send any work/photos/drawings to  @stoswaldscep as I would love to see all of your hard work!

Hope to see you all very soon!heart

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.

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.
