To all Year 5 parents and children, hope all is well at home. I have updated the class page with new learning activities. These follow patterns of teaching the children are used to in Year 5. Children are used to the activities and understand how to complete them.

13th July

I have set work for the last week of Year 5. It has been great to see the work the children have been producing over the last several weeks on SeeSaw. I am looking forward to seeing the children this week during the Keep in Touch session. I would like to thank this class for being a great class. It has been such a shame that our time together was cut short. The children of this class are amazing and I know they will all go far in the future. To the children of Year 5, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the two terms we had together a happy time for me, one in which I always had a smile on my face (apart form me being hurt, on more than one occasion). I will treasure our time together and will remember this year for the rest of my career for all the right reasons. Keep up all the hard work going into Year 6. Take care, Mr McCrudden.   This is a daily maths challenge David Walliam’s free learning resources Earth and Space Daily maths activities English Activities
