Year 5

Welcome to Year 5!



Spring is here!


We are now well into our Spring term, with some excellent work being completed online . At present, all learning will be taking place remotely through Class Dojo and the school website. Please ensure that you are familiar with how to access Class Dojo and the remote learning section of your class page. The government have outlined clear expectation that parents and schools must follow during this half term. The remote learning policy can be found on the Windy Arbor website. School will provide lessons online in the form of recorded teaching, PowerPoint presentations, written information and independent activities. These will be uploaded daily before 9am. All activities follow our usual teaching sequence and it is important that children access the teaching resources before attempting the independent activities. The expectations are that at least 2 pieces of work will be uploaded daily. Once these have been completed, they need to be sent back via Class Dojo, if you are having any difficulties, please email the wateachers email address. For the few children who meet the government criteria to be in school, the teaching sequence, resources and independent activities will be the same. This is to ensure that all children will be accessing the same learning and will have covered the same content for when they return to school. If you have requested a pack, the school office will contact you to arrange a suitable time for collection. If your child works from a paper pack, the expectation is still the same and we expect 2 completed pieces of work to be photographed and uploaded to Class Dojo or emailed everyday. We appreciate that this is a difficult time for everyone and that children working at home isn't ideal, but please do get in touch if you need further help and support. Until we are allowed to open our doors again, stay safe.

P.E days for Year 5 are Tuesday and Wednesday. Please ensure children come to school in their Windy Arbor P.E kits (black shorts/joggers with a green T-shirt)
