Hi Red Squirrels!
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 Mrs Martin x

Here are a range of websites that you can use to support whatever tasks you are doing at home:
Prodigy - your child has a login for Prodigy, this is a brilliant Maths resource and they can even battle one another!
It would be great if the children could access this as much as possible during this time as a fun way to maintain their mathematical skills and abilities.
We have already seen many of the children are logging on as the website gives us daily updates!
