Working from Home – Year 5
Well done Year 5 for a fabulous two weeks of home learning. You have been amazing and I am so so proud of you! As it is the holidays, I want you to rest as much as possible. It is vital that your brains really do have a break.
I have put some activities on the class page that you could do over Easter. There are some that are related to the learning we would have done in class, with a creative outcome. There is also a list of activities that I have put together (it might keep you busy at home and off the xbox/playstation).
There is an activity on the following link for a competition the children can enter by creating their own film. The competition this year is to create a short film or a storyboard on the theme of ‘We want an internet where we are free to…’.
Please have a fantastic Easter break, you really do deserve it (and parents too)!
If not already done so, please can we ask that you email firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s full name and year group so that school can communicate with you regarding updates. Thank you
Just a reminder- internet safety is of utmost importance when learning from home. Make sure you follow all of the guidelines we have taught you in class to make sure you are still keeping super safe!
Below are some activities the children can join in with. They can answer the questions in their home learning books. These activities are labelled as digisafe activity.
Parents- please ensure you are monitoring your children’s use of the internet at all times.
As you may have seen, to support people and know we are all thinking about one another during this time, people are creating rainbows and putting them in their front windows. I have done this at home and it has created lots of smiles for people walking past. So your task is to put a smile on peoples faces. Create a rainbow picture/poster and put it in your front window. Send a picture to me via class dojo to spread the smiles further!

Read Foundation School, Basnara, Pakistan
In Year 4 and Year 5, we have been setting up a link with Read Foundation School, in Basnara, Pakistan.
The children have made their first contact today, which is creating an ‘All About Me’ sheet, discussing themselves, school and what they are good at.
We will forward to hearing back!
