Welcome to Year 5 Home Learning 

'Sing up' at Home!

Music and singing are incredibly powerful and can help support us in so many ways – emotionally, physically and intellectually. The benefits are endless, and supporting singing is central to the philosophy at Sing Up.

Teacher Messages- Week Commencing 18th May

Good morning Year 5 :) 

We hope that you are all well. It has been really lovely to see a sudden influx of activity on Class Dojo and we have really enjoyed being able to see what you have been up to. Make sure you check out our celebration of work at the bottom of this page and also be sure to have a look at the newsletter this week as some of your work features on there too! 

We have set another lot of work for you to complete over the next two weeks- make sure that you check underneath each subject tab on the year 5 home-learning page to see the variety of activities for you to complete.  

Mrs Richardson has also been keeping up with her chicken blog so be sure to have a look at what Roxy and Birdy have been up to! https://www.southfieldjuniorsch.co.uk/Chicken-Blog/  

Stay safe, stay well, stay happy and keep learning :)

Teacher Messages- Week Commencing 4th May

Hello again, Year 5! 

We can't believe it has already been two weeks since we set your last lot of home-learning! The time seems to be passing quite quickly now that we are all settling into new routines- do you agree? 

We hope that you are all still well and are enjoying the time that you have at home; remember that as well as trying to complete your home-learning, it is really important to give yourselves time to do things that you enjoy. If you have read the newsletter this week you would have seen that as well as working hard at home, us teachers have been making the most of this time too! 

We have set another lot of work to keep you all ticking over for the next two weeks! Make sure that you check underneath each subject tab on our year group's home-learning page to see the variety of activities for you to complete. 

We are also very excited to have set up 'Class Dojo' so that you can upload the brilliant work that you are completing at home; we all really miss seeing your achievements and so we thought this would be a great way to enable us to see what you have been up to. 

Take care of yourselves.

From, Mrs Spencer, Mrs Oldridge and Mr Davis :) 

 

Teacher Messages- Week Commencing 20th April

Hello, Year 5!

We hope you have enjoyed your Easter break and are well-rested so that you can get into the full swing of home learning again! Have you all seen the video that the staff made for you over Easter? If not, you can find the link to it on the school's homepage. We had great fun making it for you and hope it made you all smile.

As schools need to remain closed for a while longer, we have put together some tasks for you to complete over the coming weeks. We know that this style of learning is bound to feel strange for you all and it is taking a little readjusting, but we also know how adaptable and resilient you are and we are confident that you can use those brilliant brains of yours to engage in the work we set. Be creative and have fun!

We are missing you all lots and hope to see you all soon.

From Mrs Spencer, Mrs Oldridge and Mr Davis

We now have some lovely tadpoles (or as my son George says, some 'tadfrogs') I will keep you updated on how they develop!
