I have separated out Year 5 and 6 learning this week. Year 5, you start the week in Maths by visiting multiplying and dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 which is perfect because we visited this learning before school closed. And if you were not in school, it's a good opportunity for you to have a go and this useful skill. Year 6, I'm particularly pleased there is some practice of fractions of amounts - something we needed to revisit. There is a nice mix of activities for English, too. Let me know if you need any further help with anything
I have added some creative activities and a physical activity to keep you busy! The impression I am getting, from parents who have emailed me so far, is that there are enough activities to engage you and keep you busy from the topic matrix I uploaded last week. But do feel free to drop me a line if you would like any further challenges. I am happy to oblige!
Don't forget to send over any photographs of work you have completed,

Good Morning Owls - 1st April 2020
Good morning to everyone in Owls class as well as all the wonderful parents and carers who are looking after you all. I do hope that you are doing well, keeping busy and finding ways to use this time constructively.
The sun is out again today and I am feeling very grateful for the warmth it brings us - both physically and emotionally! As most of you know, I have 2 children and neither of them can believe it is already Wednesday. We are also struggling to understand how it can be the 1st April ALREADY! Whilst the days sometimes drag, the weeks and months seem to be going past very quickly.
Just a thought, we have got a jar with some slips of paper/pens next to it. Each time we think of something that we miss doing, we jot it down on one of the slips of paper, fold it up and put it in the jar ready to open when the 'lockdown' is lifted and we can go out, meet friends and have some of our freedom back again. What would you write on a slip of paper? What are you missing being able to do at the moment? Set up your own jar or container of your choice. If you would like to, send me some ideas via the email that I could share anonymously on our Class Page - it will give us lots more ideas!
Look after yourselves, stay safe and look forward to hearing from you,
