Hi Year 5 and parents! Here’s all you need for our 2nd week of home learning.
Below is a copy of the timetable and a video of Miss Griffiths talking through it. All the resources for each lesson is listed further down the page. You should complete any work in your Home Learning exercise book. If you want to share your work and get feedback, ask your parent to email a photo/scan to Mr Bennett at firstname.lastname@example.org
Small groups of you will be invited to stay on the Teams call a bit longer to have a small group session with Mr Bennett. You’ll each have a go once a week. Mr Bennett will tell you who he’d like to stay on the call.
