Year 5 Home Learning – Wednesday 6th January 2021

Good morning Year 5.

We find ourselves in another lockdown, I really didn’t expect to be talking to you all through our website once again. I am already missing all your smiling faces and even though we can’t be together over the next few weeks, I have some great activities planned.

Today we will be doing Maths, English, RE and a PE activity.

Please take photos of all your completed tasks and send these to by 8pm tonight. Please send all of your work in one email. This will really help me and I will reply by the end of the day tomorrow.

Today is the Feast of the Epiphany, a very special day for Catholics. Please read the information sheet first and watch the video below:
