Year 5 Home Learning Week Beginning 13.7.20

Dear Hawthorn and Sycamore,

Here is another weeks learning, the expectation is that you complete 3 English and 3 maths lessons but it would be amazing if you completed all five. There are also additional English and maths resources if you are looking for more to do. With the wider curriculum, we have included the extra lessons so you can complete the unit for science, geography and Spanish. You do not need to do all the lessons but the option is there. ​The expectation is that you complete at least 3 of the other tasks, but aiming for 5.

We would love to hear from you and know what you have been up to this week, send us a message or a photograph to our emails. or 

Although this is not the way we expected the year to finish, we have absolutely loved being your teachers. We will treasure the memories of you all dearly. From those ‘aha’ moments in maths, reading your incredible writing, watching you learn a new instrument, perform in front of the school, reading a book with beautiful expression, watching you flourish and grow, laughing together, singing our socks off and having so much fun.

Thank you for all your hard-work, dedication, perseverance over the summer term and continuing to work hard on your learning. We are so excited to see you all again in September and the time we can all be back together simply cannot come sooner!

We are really looking forward to seeing you at the end of the week for our final video calls on teams. We will be hosting a quiz. How much of year 5 do you remember? ​This may jog your memory….

  • The Industrial Revolution
  • Oliver Twist
  • Northampton in England and Northampton in Massachusetts, USA
  • Wonder (Auggie, Jack Will, Olivia, Julian, Mr Tushman, etc)
  • Earth and Space

Take care,

Miss Taylor and Mrs Byfield
