Have a great summer Year 5! Or should we say Year 6?
Message from Teachers
Dear Year 5,
Thank you so much for all of your efforts this year. It has been a strange one and one that we are all unlikely to ever forget! We have both really enjoyed the privilege of being your teachers this year and wish you all the best in Year 6. Mr Harris is especially hopeful that you have a good Year 6, as he will be teaching you still!
Have a great summer and be sure to make the most of the time that you have to refresh and reflect on the year. For those of you that would like to keep up your studies during the break, we hope that the GCP books that we have provided you go some way to achieving this. Please read on below for more activities and suggestions to help you keep up good habits over the summer holidays.
Have a great break folk!
Thanks for everything!
Mr Plews and Mr Harris
If you’d like to keep your maths brain ‘on the boil’ over the summer holidays then we would really recommend that you check out these resources. There is one booklet for each unit from Y1 to Y6. If you have the Amazon Kindle app then you can download them for FREE and they will be auto-delivered wirelessly to an iPad, tablet or android device. You can then go to your device to start using the booklets. Find them here on Amazon or download from White Rose directly: https://whiterosemaths.com/resources/primary-resources/parent-workbooks/
If you find maths a little challenging then do the work for your current year group but if you find maths really easy then have a go at the work for next year! Don’t forget, you can email your work to your teacher for next year and they will see it in September! Just use the usual intake email address.
English - Reading
Reading, especially for primary age children, is critical to educational development and something that families can do together. Please try to read every day during the holidays! Reading aloud to children has been shown to improve reading, writing and communication skills, logical thinking and concentration, and general academic aptitude, as well as inspire a lifelong love of reading. We really love this website…https://www.storylineonline.net/…please check it out as an excellent alternative to screen time.
