On Tuesday, Year 5 spent the morning learning what lessons might have been like during the war years and considering the impact that World War Two had on families at Christmas time. There were some fabulous outfits and everyone really enjoyed the alternative take on lessons and the making of Christmas decorations from old newspapers in the name of making the best of what was available at the time.
Online Learning from January 4th 2021
Please click on the dated links below to access learning
Mrs Olivier teaches 5 Silveroak on Mondays and Tuesdays with Mrs Stephen who teaches on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Support is provided by Mrs Piper, Mrs Clarke and Ms Turnbull with PPA being covered by Mrs Piper. We are also looking forward to welcoming Mrs Long to Year 5 very soon.
This year our learning will be based around a variety of topics: please look at the curriculum plan to see which area we will be focusing on and when. PE will be on Thursday afternoons and the children should come to school in their PE kits (and preferably with a named, light, waterproof jacket because we will be outside in all weathers) until further notice. We will let you know as and when swimming can resume.
We endeavour to make learning as engaging and interactive as possible and although we are currently unable to organise any trips, we will be looking at welcoming visitors or attending workshops via Zoom.
Children will typically be set home-learning on a weekly basis, this will be put onto this webpage and will be accompanied by an answer sheet. We are asking that you don't send in hard copies of home learning sheets for the time-being and will review this later in the year.
Please spend about 30 minutes on home learning each week and ensure that an appropriate environment is provided in order to help your child to complete their home learning.
My Maths will often be set as an optional extra and each child has a Times Tables Rockstars log in, which we would encourage them to make use of in order to practise their times tables regularly.
We would also like children to read to an adult at least three times a week. At present journals and reading books are not coming home but you might like to encourage your child to keep a log of what they are reading so that they can see their own progress. We hope to be able to send individual reading books home again as soon as we have decided on a safe way of doing so.
