SPRING TERM (2021)
Dear Parents and Carers,
Firstly, I would like to thank you for your continues support over the past few months. As you already know, schools will be closed until, at least, February half term. We must remind you that although the school building is closed, learning and teaching must legally occur each day. You must ensure your child is attending his/her virtual classes and completing any work set. Do please support us by helping your child to set up a home learning routine.
Try to stick to school timings as much as possible. I have outlined an example based on the school day below.
8:00- 9:00 - Breakfast and gentle exercise
9:00 -10:15 - AM Registration (compulsory), Whole class reading and Arithmetic
10:30-11.30: Catch up session on Google hangout (compulsory), English activities (writing, grammar, drama) / SPAG activities

Miss Moore will continue to deliver her ICT lessons every Wednesday's between 9am-10.00am. This will be followed with PE with the PE coaches at 10.30 am so please make sure you child is wearing comfortable clothing so they can fully take part in the lesson.
This half term, our topic is called 'Walls and Barricades'. The children will explore a variety of walls around the world, the impact this has hadon the lives of the people as well as exploring the impact of the Apartheid regime on the life of South African people and Nelson Mandela's human rights campaign. I have attached our Medium Term Plan and some suggested website you can explore with your child.
If you got any questions or need additional support, please do not hesitate to contact me: firstname.lastname@example.org

Homework in Year 5 is given out on a Friday and returned on a Wednesday (unless stated otherwise in special circumstances). Please make sure you child brings their homework in on time, as it is beneficial to our learning at the time.
