Take care, stay safe and keep going.
You are all amazing!
Hi everyone! We hope that you are all well
Once again, thank you for all of the fantastic work that you are continuing to share with us on your Class Dojo portfolios. It has been wonderful to see the range of activities that you have been completing and we are delighted to see your efforts in the tasks which are being set. If you are unsure of how to upload pictures to your portfolios, please send us a message on Class Dojo and we will point you in the right direction.
Please continue to use the links below to access work that can be completed at home. in addition to English and Maths based activities, there are links to our History unit on the Egyptians and some links to a Science unit on plants. Plants was covered in school in the Autumn term, but it would be a valuable opportuntiy to revisit the children's learning (particularly lessons 5 and 6).
If you are struggling to access the internet and would prefer to collect a set pack of work from school, please send us a message on Class Dojo and we can arrange a suitable time for you to collect this from school.

Home Learning Tasks - Year 4 WC 04.05.20
Position and Direction
Our Science topic for this half term is Electricity. There are lots of different activities that can be done. Look around your houses for things that use electricity and think whether it is essential or non essential. Identifying what type of electricity certain appliances use eg, mains power or battery powered or both. Thinking about safety and electricity - could pupils design a safety poster for Safe use of Electricity around the house - Dos and Don'ts. Maybe creating energy saving posters or reminders to put around the house to reduce the use of electricity.
Roman Recipes - These three recipes have been taken from Pintrest. If you have a go at any, be sure to check the ingredients for allergies.

We have updated our Year 5 Home Learning Curriculum Map which encompasses all the main topic areas that we would have taught this term. We have designed it to be knowledge-rich, varied, accessible and fun. Whilst we want to provide as much help and support as we can, we don't want to add any additional pressure because we understand the difficulties that home schooling can present. It is vitally important that your home life remains happy and positive. Please remember we are available on ClassDojo to contact, should you need any help or support.
If you are unable to access the online material, we are also providing alternative packs of printed work that is available for collection from the school office. Please let us know via ClassDojo if you need this.
Stay safe and stay in touch.

Take a look at the learning project we have put together for you. Choose as many as you like to have a go at. We'd love to see pictures of your finished products - you can send them via Class Dojo.
TTRockstars, Reading Plus and Sumdog are all still available, and are excellent to go on daily. If your child has a Nessy subscription, they can continue to access this at home. If your child has phonics sessions at school, Miss Hennessy and I will contact you via private message on Class Dojo with log in details and to let you know which phase to practise.
Additionally, have a look at any of the following online learning resources:
Oxford Owls have a range of books, which are banded just like the books at school. They are offering their ebooks free for homeschooling. You just need to register.
I See Maths is a great online resource, which we use in school. Gary Metcalfe, who runs it, is offering free online lessons daily, which are well worth a watch.
Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is offering a free daily workout on his YouTube channel
Have fun, stay safe and keep in touch,
