Home learning W.B. 13.07.20


We've made it. It's now the final week of the year. Let us be the first to say a very well done for all the work you've done since September. We're very proud of the progress you've made. You have also impressed us with your resilience and positive attitude during the pandemic. No-one expected that the year would turn out like this but you have coped enormously well. We look forward to welcoming you back to school in September, when you'll be Year 6! How the time has flown by!


As it is the last week of term, we are not expecting you to complete as much work as you have been doing. Had we been in school, we would have finished the curriculum by now and would be doing some recapping and some transition work. Therefore, here are the tasks you need to complete:



Go to https://readtheory.org/auth/login and complete at least one quiz per day so that you can keep your reading skills sharp.



There are no writing lessons as such this week. Instead, we've set three 2dos on Purple Mash (https://www.purplemash.com/sch/queens-cv11) which centre around transition. 



We've set a few 2dos on Purple Mash around co-ordinates and probability. They're fairly simple but - as we haven't looked at these topics recently - you may want to take your time or do a quick Google search to recap them.



There are some nice art lessons on Oak Academy (https://classroom.thenational.academy/schedule-by-year/year-5) which are easy to complete at home. 


There is also one more RE lesson, which we'll post on padlet.


We will continue to monitor padlet and post a few optional tasks, so keep checking back there for updates.


Kind regards,

Mr. Grimwood, Miss Wright and Mrs. Makryliotaki
