Class 5 Home Learning
Hello Class 5!
We hope you have all been making the most of the sunshine and enjoying your time at home! Although it’s a funny time, it’s also a good opportunity to spend more time with your families and do things you may not usually have time to do! Hopefully we’ll be back at school before we know it!
From 1st June 2020, Year 4 will have their home learning set by Miss McLean, who will post a work timetable every week (usually Monday) on the website which will guide you on which activities to do and for roughly how long. We don’t want you working too hard, but at the same time, you must keep your learning brains ticking over! If you have any questions or work to send, please do so at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Year 5 and 6 will have home learning assigned by Mrs Main. For any questions or work to send, please email her at email@example.com.
Well done if you have been answering questions on IXL. If you know you have not practiced in a while, now is the time to do it please! There will be prizes on our return to school for those completing the most questions!
All work that is set can be found under the subject headings on the Class 5 Home Learning page or on the weekly home-learning activities pages. Any problems, let us know!
Please do email some photos of you having fun at home and completing any of the work set!
If you would like feedback on your work, please email the relevant teacher and they will have a look and get back to you. Think of it as long distance marking!
