Summer

All school work will now be set online using Purple Mash.

We have our own class blog (click on sharing icon, followed by shared blogs), where children can add comments, create posts or ask for help.

Do keep checking the 2 Dos folder daily. I have now added some online reading books. Each day, I will publish a new chapter and tasks to complete.

This term our History topic is the Victorians and our Geography topic is Marvellous Mountains. Go to the 2 Dos folder for tasks linked to these topics. Choose at least one project to complete from the list provided here Year 5 Victorians Project .

Spellings will be uploaded to Spelling Shed each week (on a Tuesday). Go to the Purple Mash Class 5 yellow work folder, to view this terms spelling lists. You should also continue to practise your times tables on TTRockstars.

IXL is a good site to practise Maths and Grammar related skills.  Each child in Class 5 has their own personal log in and progress is saved for the staff in class to see.

BBC Bitesize have also produced daily lessons for you to access at home: https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons

These resources can also be viewed on BBC Iplayer or the red button through a smart television.

Finally, check out the new lessons at the Oak National Academy:

We will be awarding Class Dojo points for any work completed at home.  I will reward points for any completed 2 Dos, as well as for adding comments/creating a post on the class blog. Greater effort will result in extra points. Also, I will award points for accessing Spelling Shed. Mrs Clark will reward points if you access TTRockstars or IXL. When we do return to school, there will be a special prize for the person with the most points.

If for any reason you can not access Purple Mash or the other online resources, continue to work through your maths textbook and reading comprehension book.
