Welcome, Hornbeam and Sycamore Classes!
While the school is closed, this is where you will find all your home learning tasks for Years 5 and 6. We will be setting you work every week and you will be free to arrange your own timetable of learning. Click on the subjects below to find out what you will be doing each week.
You will see in some subjects that Year 5 and Year 6 have separate work, but in some we have set the same work. Obviously at school you have all been together for reading, writing and maths, so you can generally carry on doing the same work here.
Where there are different plans for Years 5 and 6, like on the writing page, have a look at them both and choose the one you find most interesting and useful for you.
Make yourself a timetable (or follow Mrs Jax's example on the home page). It's important to have a structure to your day that still gives you time to be creative, play and relax.
Equally, it's really important that you continue with your learning during these weeks, to prepare yourself for Year 6 or Year 7! It won't always be easy to motivate yourself, but by doing so you will build good habits for independent study that will last you a lifetime.
Good luck, keep busy, keep in touch and let us know if you have any questions or problems.
Mrs Carter, Mrs Card and Mrs Gillinder.
PS! The Great Debates are now in a separate folder. We will add new debates every week to get your family discussing (not arguing!) the pros and cons of each subject. Let us know how you get on!
Breaking News - more amazing crafting!
In addition to Thomas's fantastic shoes, we can now also applaud Charlie's wonderful knitted hat! She's worked incredibly hard to make this during her home learning time and will probably be taking orders for bobble hats for years to come!
Well done Charlie!
This is a great opportunity for you to learn new skills such as knitting and sewing. Good luck, and as ever, send in your pictures and we'll put them on this page for everyone to admire.
