We are absolutely gutted about the announcement last night- we would much rather be in school with you, but we must do what is best for keeping everyone safe! As you know, we had lots of exciting things planned to look forward to, but for now, we will put it all on hold. We hope to continue with our Wow Day when we eventually return to school so keep your costume nice and safe!! We will upload work onto here for you to complete every day. Each day you must complete the Maths, English, Guided Reading and some Topic/afternoon work. Please send all work in daily so that we can give appropriate feedback. All year 5 members of staff will be contactable via the year group email:
We will monitor this email and respond between 8:30am and 3:30pm. Please send any completed work or any questions to this email address. We know it is hard but it is really important you complete this work- it will all be worth it in the end!
Keep smiling and stay safe.

Update: Week 4- 25th January
Wow, Dragonflies! Here we are, heading into week 4 of home learning. I am missing you all so much! I have absolutely loved looking through the work that you have completed and I have to say, I am so impressed with what you have been doing! Remember to look in the completed work folder to see what everyone has been up to! I know it is really tricky but please keep going with your school work. I have missed seeing some of your emails this week!
Remember why you are doing the work and what an amazing job you are doing. Your emails really brighten our day as well when we read them!
Don't forget to keep sending your work every day and to also keep it neat!!
Keep going and keep in touch
Love Miss Travers xx
Update: Week 3- 18th January
Hi Dragonflies! I have missed you this week! Whilst I haven't been replying to emails, I have been having a nosey at what you have been up to and really enjoyed looking at the work you sent in when I uploaded some of your completed work. It is clear that you have worked so hard this week. We also had a busy week in school and it was nice to see those who were in. I am ready to respond to all of your emails this week and catch up with you all. I am going to contact you all in the next couple of days. I have a plan so keep your eyes peeled for an all important email!!
Remember to keep up the good work and send it in once you have done it, along with any questions you may have. You are all super stars and I am really proud of how hard you have been working up until now. You've got this!!
Love Miss Travers xx
Update- 10th January
Hello Dragonflies! I hope you are now settling into home learning and getting into some sort of routine. Some of the work you have been sending in is fantastic! We have really enjoyed looking at it. Please remember that the work is compulsory and must be completed.
As of Monday (11th Jan) please send your completed work daily so that we can check you are on the right track and give you any guidance before the next lesson if it looks like you need it. This also helps us to update our records on a daily basis so we can see who has done what on each day.
Keep up the hard work, we have loved looking at what you are completing. I know it seems like the journey ahead may be long, but we are really proud of the work you have completed so far! Keep it up!
Just as an extra note, for those of you struggling to send your work in, there is a way to scan it in from your iPhone. I know this works for iPhones but I am not sure about other phones. If you open up your Notes app and open a new notes page. Select the camera symbol from the tool bar along the bottom and then select scan documents. This will enable you to scan any completed work. From there, select share in the top right corner and from there you can email it to us!
Hello year 5! That was a little bit of a surprise this afternoon! I trust that you are now settled at home and working on your booklet! Don't forget your two jobs for this afternoon; your Christmas booklets and Prodigy. If any of you have misplaced or forgotten your log in information then please send me an email.
As I said to you earlier, it is better to be safe than sorry and the best way you can all keep yourselves and your families safe is to stay at home. It is a real shame that we won't get to spend the rest of the week in school together but I know you can take care of yourselves at home. The Christmas holidays will soon be here and we will soon be back at school together in January! The school is still open for other children and I have explained that you will all be expected to complete the work that is set and I can't wait to see what you can achieve in these few days.
If any of you need anything at all, then please e-mail me. My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Please don't be afraid to e-mail with any questions you have, any work you want to share or any photos of what you have achieved and been up to!
We will update the Home Learning pages with your work for the next few days and explain what you need to do, but you have got everything you need for now.
Take care of yourselves!
Love Miss Travers x
Click on the icons below to find the work set for each day! If you have any problems, questions or completed work to send in then please do so! If you are unable to print the work off, then it should be completed on paper. Have fun!
Magnus Academy 6th Form Panto
Here is this year's panto from Magnus. Their sixth form students decided they still wanted to do something even though they couldn't come in to school for us all to watch. It is based on the tale of Red Riding Hood and the script, costumes and editing has all been done by the students. What a great way to get into the Christmas spirit! You should definitely give it a watch!
Here is the link for the online Advent Calendar that we took part in! I think we made it to opening day 16. You could carry on watching them at home. If you would like to show your grown ups our video, it was on day 15.
Dragonflies, we have just about made it!! You have worked so hard this half term and we have been so so busy! I am so proud of all of you who even managed to keep going for the last three days at home. Well done, you should be pleased with what you have achieved.
I really hope that all of you enjoy your break and make the most of your time off- you deserve a rest! I am missing you already and cannot wait to see you all again in January, ready for another fun-filled half term. Look after yourselves and your families and stay safe.
Love from Miss Travers (and Jazz and Bramble) xxx
