Year 5 Online Learning 11.01.21

Happy Monday Year 5!

We hope you all had a restful weekend and are ready for another great week of learning. Each day there will be Maths, English, Spelling and Reading to complete as well a topic based lesson.

Please keep in touch with us via the emails below. Send through any work that your child has completed, either typed or a photo, as well as any questions or support you may need.  Your work so far that we have received has been incredible!

We will have access to our emails throughout the typical school day.

Remember to keep yourself active throughout the day and take some well-deserved brain breaks!

Stay safe.

Mrs Samways and Miss Castell
