Year 5 Online Learning 08.02.21

Happy Monday Year 5!

We hope you all had a restful weekend and are ready for another great week of learning.

All of your work for today has been set for you on Google Classroom.

If you are still not sure about how to log in, find the work set or how to hand in your work on Google Classroom, watch this video to help you:  https://video.link/w/lLqPb

You have a task to complete for Spellings, Reading, Maths, English and PHSE today. There is also a link to a website we would like you to use this week to complete some reading each day, rather than listening to an extract of a book.

If you are having any difficulties accessing Google Classroom, please do email us and let us know as we will stop posting the daily schedule on the school website at the end of this week as all of our work is now being set on Google Classroom.

Stay safe.
