The term hasn’t begun the way we predicted but as ever we shall adapt and continue our resilient approach to the obstacles COVID-19 throws our way. Adults, please keep checking your email address that is linked to the School and text messages for the latest information. Thank you for your patience and support in helping us adapt to the required safety and learning procedures. 

I will be providing lessons and activities on Google Classroom. For more detailed information, please continue to check my posts on the Google Classroom feed. All children have their Google Classroom logins in their school diaries.

Please find a copy of our home learning timetable for the next 2 weeks. This will be updated weekly. Please ensure you complete the wellbeing and check-in register that I will post on Google Classroom each morning to let me know how you are doing.

Please log on to your Google Classroom account daily to find the activities and more information on what to do for each subject. If you have any issues please contact me on our class email or through Google Classroom.  Remember all morning work myst be uploaded by 1pm to have feedback by 5pm that day. Your afternoon work must be uploaded by 3:30pm to have feedback by 12pm the following school day. Please check the submitted work once it has been returned for your feedback as you may have corrections to make.

Each day there will be a ‘Google Meet’. This will be where I can meet you as part of a small group online through video chat. You will be told which day your ‘Meet up’ will be and attendance is expected. If you cannot attend please let me know. I appreciate there may be occasional internet issues/timing issues/microphones not working etc but please let me know so that I can schedule to join a meeting on another day 🙂

Please stay safe and I look forward to see you all in person again soon, but for now I look forward to seeing you on Google Meet.

Kind Regards,

Miss Smart

Google Classroom:

The children have been given login details for Google Classroom which they have stuck into their diary. We have spoken to the children about how to use Google Classrooms and will be completing some classwork on here later in the week. Homework will begin to be set on Google Classroom that children can become familiar using it.

School Tracksuit:

School Tracksuits can now be ordered through our website via ParentPay. Please follow the tabs: Parents > Uniform > Shop or click here

When your child’s tracksuit arrives, they will be able to come to school wearing their tracksuit and will not need to change into their school uniform on PE days only.

Meet the Teacher

We have created a video outlining our learning for this term as well as curriculum expectations in Year 5. The video also includes details of the changes that have been made in school to keep everyone safe. It is also an opportunity to meet the Year 5 teachers. The slides included in the video have been uploaded too so that you can have a more detailed look at the details shared.
