I am so sorry that your education has been disrupted during this difficult time. I have loved teaching you all in Year 5 and I hope that we can all be back together again soon. We had so much planned for the summer term, but sadly much of this will change.
For the coming weeks schools remain officially closed, but for a few who we must look after. However, we will all do our best to ensure that learning takes place at home and we adjust to a new way of working and communicating with you. Don’t just rely on the home learning that we ask of you from school, think of lots of things to do to keep yourself occupied. We don’t really know yet what learning at home will look like after Easter, but for now we have created a taster of some home learning for you to get on with.
Remember that you are all a great part of Year 5 and St Andrew’s. I want you to remain in contact with each other if possible, although you mustn’t really see each other in person. Speak to your parents about different ways you can stay in contact with your friends online or over the telephone
Take a look at the learning by clicking on the link at the top of this page. I have created a range of tasks which I would like you complete. Many can be completed online or printed out.
Spellings will be given out every Friday and tested the following Friday.
If you are looking for ideas to help with learning spellings during the week - please take a look at this such which has a range of multi-sensory approaches to learning spelling.
We have started a new Maths based daily homework scheme. Children should complete as much of a session in 15 minutes (No more - even if not completed). The next day, they will mark their work and earn a ninja belt for the day!
To learn independence - if a child knows they will be busy one evening, they can/must get ahead the night before to stay ahead.
For parents - This is an independent activity for your child to do as much as they can in 15 mins. This will be a scheme over 2 years so they will get used to the questions quickly.
