Microsoft Teams Sign In Instructions:
We have P.E. each Wednesday and Friday, therefore children are expected to attend school wearing their P.E. kit. Wednesday’s P.E. lessons are with Miss Lucy.
Homework will be online and consists of TT Rockstars where children will receive a weekly multiplication focus and Purple Mash with weekly spellings. Children will be complete a test the following week based upon their spellings and multiplication focus.
In addition, some Year 5 children are set up on Reading Plus where they are able to complete tasks which will test their vocabulary acquisition and comprehension of the texts they are reading. All children are encouraged to read daily at home using Oxford Owl.
If you need any further assistance with accessing any of the online learning tasks, then please contact Miss Cusack.
If you are self-isolating, work will be put on our class page for you. This will mirror what we are doing in school and will be available below.
