Welcome to Year 5
Year 5 can be a calm and studious year; a year to embed all of the knowledge learnt in lower Key Stage 2; a year to start the preparations for transition to secondary school.
This is often a year when children grow in maturity – sometimes even more so than in their final year in primary. They gain a greater independence and confidence from being given more responsibility in their learning.
Children in Year 5 are increasingly encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning: to do their homework, to pack their school bag, to remember their PE kits. And they develop and grow as a result. It is about encouraging independence in preparation for bigger things to come.
Sadly, we are in the situation of having to put your learning online again. We are very sad that we aren't able to teach you in school right now but will put lots of activities in the folders below for you to do at home.
Every morning and afternoon, there will be a Zoom meeting to run over a few examples of the day's tasks. You must try and attend this as your teachers can explain all the tasks and where to find them.
Below, you will then find a weekly timetable and your work in the folder and will need to upload any work you complete onto SeeSaw. You can do this by taking screenshots of work you have completed on the screen or by taking photos of any work that you print off.
PLEASE CHECK THE FOLDER BELOW TO SEE YOUR GROUP FOR EACH TOPIC. You can always have a go at the work set for other groups too.
