Class 5 Home Learning

Suggested activities for w/c 30th March

This is a work in progress - please check back in the coming days.

We have no expectations for submitting work - below is an option available to you to use if you would like.

If you choose to send work in to the Class 5 teaching team, please photograph/scan and email it to them at . This email address will be checked periodically during the usual school day hours from the first day of closure, circumstances permitting.  As this is a new way of working, you will not get an immediate response.

Week Commencing 30/03/20:

Below you will find activities that would be great for your child to keep up with schooling whilst at home.

Note, that we do not expect children to be working all day – just choose perhaps one activity per day – give it a go, have fun and do not be afraid of making mistakes!

If you would like to share what you have done, or if you have any questions we will be checking the class 5 emails daily.

Thinking of you all

Mr Self and Mrs Parrott.

NOTE: A big thank you to those who sent work in / made contact by email over the past week, it really is great to see what you have been up to!

If you have yet to have the chance, why not try, even if it is just to tell us how you have been keeping busy! :)
