Welcome to Year 5
Miss Jones and Mrs Harbour
We work with a company called SEND Supported at school and they are releasing newsletters each week offering support and guidance to parents of children who many have additional needs in school. Please find below a link to these newsletters:
There are also lots of other resources and information available on their website. The 'Things to do Issue 2 - Resources' file has some lovely activities for all children regardless of whether they have additional needs or not. There are lots of great visual puzzles and games for children to play so please have a look if you can. There are also resources available now to support with developing children's memory skills in 'Thing to do Issue 3 - Resources.'
Home Learning During School Closure
Every Monday I will upload links onto our 'Class Page' for the week's Maths, English and Project Learning. Mrs Vickers will also read you a chapter or two of 'The Goldfish Boy' by Lisa Thompson, which you'll find in the Year 5 section of the 'Video Resource Centre'. On some days, I will post videos to explain some of the project learning tasks and you'll find those there too. Don't forget to write a blog post or send me an email once a week to show me all of your fantastic learning!
Expected Weekly Learning for Year 5
Daily Reading, 5 Maths lessons, 5 English lessons and 1 or 2 Project Learning tasks depending on the complexity of the tasks.
This is our suggested expectation but we do understand that this may not fit in with the circumstances of all families so please do not worry. As long as children are taking part in small but regular learning experiences this will support a smooth transition back into school.
Other Optional Learning Resources
Feel free to visit and use other optional learning resources available for Year 5 further down this page or use the Robin Hood Weekly Learning Project document.
