Year 5 Online Learning 09.02.21

Happy Tuesday Year 5!

All of your work for today has been set for you on Google Classroom. You have been working incredibly hard to complete and submit your work  – we are really proud of you!

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 History 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.

We are going start a unit for this week based on a haunting poem called ‘The Listeners’ . We are continuing to use the Oak Academy to help us teach you this unit.

Task 1: Watch this video first to help you create some strategies for understanding the vocabulary in the poem.
