Year 5 Dragonflies

Hi Dragonflies! 

 

I hope you are all well and have been enjoying the recent sunshine in your gardens!

 

In the Home Learning Packs that we sent out, there was plenty of work to keep you going for a while. Each day, you should complete one Maths, one English and one other activity. We have also put our e-mail addresses on the packs so that you can keep us updated with everything you get up to. We are looking forward to seeing what you can get up to! 

As well as doing some work, we want you to have some fun and make the most of spending some time together.

 

Keep safe and keep smiling Year 5, we can’t wait to see you all again soon!

Love Miss Travers x

 

Parents, please remember that we are here to help you during these times. If you have any issues or any questions then please contact us and we will try our best to help. Feel free to keep us posted with what you are all getting up to- school related or not as it will be nice to hear from you! ๐Ÿ˜Š

g.travers@johnhunt.notts.sch.uk

 

Keep checking in. We will create some folders and keep adding some work to it to keep you all busy!

 

Thank you for your support ๐Ÿ’™ x

Update- 10th May 2020

 

Hello Dragonflies! It was lovely to catch up with you all this week- it was great to hear what you have been getting up to! 

I am missing you all so much and really enjoyed having a quick catch up! 

 

Please keep looking at our folders for each week. There should be plenty of bits and bobs to keep you busy. Make sure you check all of the folders so you don't miss out (Maths, Reading, Writing, Topic and Try something different)! All three of us love receiving e-mails from your grown ups with updates of what you've done and some pictures of some of your work- keep them coming! laugh

 

Keep working hard, hopefully we will get to see you all again soon. Also, remember to be kind to each other and take care of each other.

 

Love Miss Travers xx 

 

 

 

Update- 31st May 2020

 

I hope you all had a lovely half term. We have been very lucky with the weather we have had. This week should have marked the start of our last half term together, as well as been time for our residential. But of course, we have to continue staying safe. Although we would rather be together and heading off to Ironbridge, I know that you are all doing a fab job staying safe, being kind and looking after each other. 

 

It has been very strange being in school without you and it will feel odd being back with different children this week. Last time I was in, I even took down the Fair Trade competition posters, but I think it's pretty clear who won! wink

I had a lovely email from Kyan's mum this week, showing me all the things Kyan and his sister have done to complete the John Hunt Challenge! They have clearly worked hard and shown a lot of dedication to complete it! Super work you two! You can see a couple of examples of what they did for the challenges in amongst our images. 

Don't forget to keep sending your work in! All of the work that we put on is still in the relevant folders. Make sure you also check out the Try Something Different folder too!

 

I trust that you have all been keeping busy however you can. Don't forget to keep updating your time capsule you created. You might have lots in it by now and I'm sure you will add more in the weeks to come as well! It would be great to see some.

I have spent lots of extra time with my dogs so it will be strange having to leave them again! Jazz has been practising her posing (showing off her new collar) and we have been practising our selfie taking on our walks! laugh

 

I cant wait for some more e-mail updates from you, I love hearing what you have been getting up to! 

I have everything crossed that we are able to see each other again soon and end our year together. Remember to be kind and look after each other. As usual, keep smiling!

 

Love from Miss Travers xx

Hello Dragonflies, I am missing you all so much! Although I am enjoying being back in school a bit more, it is not the same without all of you!

I hope that you are continuing to keep safe and look after each other. I know that some of you have been extremely busy! It is hard to keep up with what you are all doing! Please remember to keep us updated with what you have been up to! Equally, you/your grown ups can email with any questions or if they need anything from us! Although we cannot see each other, it is fantastic that we can still keep in touch and update each other! You should all be really proud of everything you have achieved since school closed! I know that doing your work at home is very different and sometimes tricky (and I am sure there are lots of other things you would rather do!!) but I am proud of you for sticking it out and doing what you can! I have enjoyed receiving emails about what you've been up to in the garden, from planting to playing archery, playing games to playing in the pool! You have been getting up to all sorts! 

 

I met Mrs Martin today to take our dogs for a walk. It is the first time they have ever met, but they are good friends now! They particularly enjoyed a good swim- well, apart from Bramble! In the first picture below, you can see the three of them sat together- on the left is Bramble, then Milo (Mrs Martin's dog) and then Jazz.

 

Remember to keep checking our folders each week. This week will be week 13! I really hope you are checking all of the folders as well, so you don't miss something exciting! I am in school this week, but I am going to give your grown ups a quick call so that we can have a catch up! I will ring after I have finished at school so keep an eye out (or should I say keep your ears open?!) for my call! It will be lovely to speak to you all again! 

 

Keep smiling and keep in touch!

It was soooo lovely to catch up with most of you last week! I am missing you so much and I am so excited to see some of you this week as you return to school! I just wish we could all be back together like normal! This week is a little bit tricky, with the children starting school starting on the Wednesday and some of you being at different stages with our topics. For this reason, the work on our home learning page and the work we do in school will differ slightly. However, this will even out and we will all be doing the same work by next Monday! We will also be starting a new topic next week, which we will work on until the end of the year. It's going to be a good one!! I wonder if you can guess which subject it includes a lot of? I can't wait to get back into school and finish off the year with some of you. For those of you at home, please do keep in touch and keep sending in the pictures of all of the amazing work you are doing! Some of you have really impressed me with the work you have done and some of you look like you have been really busy and had some fab adventures!

I hope that you are all continuing to stay safe and take care of each other. We are still here for you and we are just an email away if you need anything. 

Keep smiling! 

 

Love from Miss Travers๐Ÿ’™xxx

 

PS here is an updated pic of my four babies! As you can see, Callie was so happy to be reunited with her sisters that she is smiling! ๐Ÿ˜†
