School Closure Work
Whilst the school is closed, this is where you will find daily activities for your children to complete if they feel well enough. Each day, a task for Maths, SPaG/writing and Reading will be uploaded. Once the work has been completed, please email it to with your child's class name or teacher and their initials in the subject. 

We love hearing from you and seeing all the things you've getting up to at home including baking, gardening, inventing games, arts and crafts! Email in pictures of what you've been doing for a chance to appear on the school website! Scroll to the bottom of the page to see all the amazing things Year 5 have been getting up to at home!
Weekend - 28.3.20/29.3.20
We've all loved hearing from so many of you this week and it's been great to see how hard you and your family members are working on the tasks we have set - well done! 

During a time like this, it's really important that we look out for each other and do things to keep each other smiling, and feeling positive and happy. Yesterday, whilst I (Mrs Kirk) was out on my daily walk with my dog, one thing that made me smile and feel more positive was seeing the pictures of rainbows in people's windows and on their fences - I think my dog liked them too! Therefore, your task for this weekend is to do something to make someone smile. Below are some ideas to get you started, but if you have another idea that's fine too! 
  • If you haven't already, draw a picture to put in your window for people to look at whilst they are out on their walks
  • Help your parents around the house - tidy your room (don't groan too loudly), help with the housework, help with cooking dinner 
  • Hold a comedy show! Tell your family a few jokes to make them laugh 
  • Write a letter to a friend, family member or neighbour 
We'd love to see what you get up to so please send in your pictures/videos to the year group email.
Have a lovely weekend, 
Mrs Kirk, Mrs McCormack, Miss Blackwell and Mr McDonald
