Welcome to Year 5
Miss Fowler and Miss Jones
Learning during lockdown
Children who are at school and children who are at home will be completing the same learning.
In the morning, we will be using the Oak National Academy for the core subjects of English and Maths. During the afternoons, children will be able to complete one foundation lesson (this could be Geography, Art, D&T, PE, PSHE, RE or Music) or a Science lesson. These lessons will also be from Oak National Academy.
Please refer to your weekly learning grid sent via Class Dojo to find the learning for each day.
Alongside the set daily learning, there are also a selection of useful websites and activities to help children continually practise their key skills. These are available below for families to use as and when they wish to supplement the learning that is set on Class Dojo.
