Welcome to our class page.
From now on, due to the ongoing situation, please refer to our home learning page for daily work, activities and resources.
More than ever, you must keep an eye on your emails and announcements on Google Classroom.
Please make sure you keep a copy of our weekly timetable somewhere safe; why not print it out and stick it up on the fridge or on your wall in your room.
Some added information our our timetable
Our timetable has been designed to try and be both flexible, fun and forthcoming. It aims to support you with the key aims of the curriculum and make sure that your mental health and well being are looked after too.
For the next 3 weeks, our English lessons will be delivered live via Mrs C. on YouTube at 09:45am.
Mrs Giles will deliver daily live Maths lessons at 1pm.
At times she may contact you to arranged a small group Google Meet to do some intervention work.
To make your learning even better, Mrs Giles has decided to allow you to choose your foundation subject for each afternoon - please refer to Oak Academy for lessons. She would like to see you doing some subjects you enjoy, maybe cooking with your family, a touch of gardening (not in the snow of course) or some fitness with the family. Just make sure that whatever you do, you are uploading some evidence to show what you have accomplished.
You are now only expected to complete one foundation subject per afternoon to allow you time to complete English and maths and not over tire yourself.
We will meet as a class @1pm on Friday afternoons to take part in our Every Mind Matters sessions. These will involve lots of lovely activities and even some socialising with friends alongside Mrs Giles having chatroom/Google Meet sessions with small groups. This will be a lovely end to our week together.
Assembly will be via Google Meet each Friday at 10am. Look out for the link coming through on your Classroom stream or email.
Check out the exciting challenges for your afternoon breaks. Mrs Giles would love to see some videos - especially the Karaoke sessions.
Monday 4th January 2021: Return to school!
Don't forget that our school day begins at 8:45am.
Please remember to check that you have the correct uniform - if you are unsure then you can find the information on our website.
Mrs Giles is happy to answer any questions or queries you may have; simply drop her an email from your account or upload a comment on Google Classroom.
Maths Homework is set every Monday, on MyMaths, and is due the following Thursday morning. If you do not have access to an iPad, laptop or device for your homework, please speak to Mrs Giles before Thursday and she can help you. If you are struggling with your homework, Mrs Giles will be available on Wednesday lunchtimes to go over this with you so please do not worry!
English Homework is set on a Thursday and is due in the following Monday. You will have homework books, but most of your work will be set online on our Google Classroom. Please make sure that it is handed in on time. You will be given spellings to learn each week, as well as some SPaG and sometimes a writing task.
Reading is a very important skill and Year 5/6 is no different to any other year. You will be expected to have a reading book in school every day. This book should go home and someone at home should try and read with you at least once per week.
Your reading book should be returned to the classroom each morning and taken home again each evening.
You will also be expected to access Reading Plus at home and you will have a target to meet each week.
If you are self isolating, or you are feeling unwell and are not in school, you can visit our home learning page by following the link below.
Each week there will be a timetable of activities for you to complete on Google Classroom.
If you have any questions please email Mrs Giles.
