Year 5 Update

Happy New Year!

We hope that this message finds you and your families all safe and well?

Here at school the Year 5 team have been busy putting together plans for the next 6 weeks of Home Learning.

Over the course of the next 6 weeks your children should receive at least 3 hours of learning a day, including one hour led by one of the class teachers on Microsoft Teams. You will receive a Teams meeting invitation from Mrs Moody the evening before the lesson. Please make sure you have signed up to ParentMail correctly; any issues with this please see Mrs Moody’s letter.

Between Mondays and Thursdays, each week, the class teacher leading the lesson will lead all three classes, but at different times, following this timetable below.

The times are set and will be followed each week.

If your child is part of the Key Worker bubble on these occasions then they will take part in these sessions from within school.

The timetable above starts from Friday 8th January. At 10am tomorrow and Thursday, each class teacher will meet their own class for a Wellbeing catch-up.

This week’s “Home Learning” will be sent home each evening, ready for the children on the following day. In the Teams meetings this week class teachers will discuss the activities as well as revise and practise the Teams rules and behaviours.

As per Mrs Moody’s letter you can contact the Year 5 team for feedback on or to share your children’s learning. Please use this email address for this;

We thank you for your patience this week, whilst we are ourselves adjusting and planning for this unprecedented way of teaching and supporting the children in the best way possible.

Please do not hesitate to contact the email address above for any home learning difficulties or queries. The teachers personal email addresses are still in use for the personal emails and messages.

Kindest regards for the New Year and the challenging times we are all facing.
