Year 5: w/c: 20.4.20

Work for Year 5 Pupils for week commencing 20.4.20

Dear Year 5 Pupils,

Welcome to the summer term! We hope you have had a restful Easter break and perhaps enjoyed some of the learning we have put up over the last couple of weeks. If you have had a break from learning, don’t worry, the pages will still be up for a while so you can complete it when it is convenient for you. For now, it is time for us to start exploring some new topics across the curriculum; we have lots of exciting learning and activities for you to complete at home.

Remember to work within your own schedule and at your own pace and ensure you have a break in between each subject.

A Reminder to parents: Always ensure parental controls are switched on when accessing websites. Children should always be supervised when accessing the Internet. For more details click here or check the Online Safety Information section on our web site.

Happy learning!

From Ms. Duong and the Year 5 Team.
