Wednesday 1st April

Good morning year 5. We hope you have managed to get to grips with the work you have been sent over the last few days. We have heard from a few of you, but we would love to see what more of you have been doing. Send us a quick email if you have a moment. 

Monday 30th March

Hello everyone.  We hope you have all had a good week at home with your families and that you have all managed to keep yourselves safe and busy. 

We are adding the work for Monday 30th and Tuesday 31st.  If you work with Mrs Rodwell for either English or Maths (or both), you need to look at the work in that folder.   

If you have any difficulty opening the folder or understanding the activities, then please do let either Mrs Baker, Mrs Rigby or Mrs Chapman know via email.  We have tried to keep activities as simple and self-explanatory as possible. 

We would really love it if you could take a photo of one of the activities that you have completed from the learning packs each week and email it back to us at the end of every week. 

Happy learning!   Mrs Baker, Mrs Chapman and Mrs Rigby. smiley



Thursday 26th March

Hello.  We hope you are all okay and enjoying the lovely sunshine this week.  We've popped a second video on the school facebook page for anyone who wants a little reminder how to subtract mixed number fractions . yes

Tuesday 24th March

Mrs Baker has made a couple of short videos which hopefully help to explain subtracting fractions.  It should be posted on the Elm Tree facebook home learning page shortly. enlightened


Also, here is a handy link which helps explain some of the maths concepts we cover in Year 5


Monday 23rd March.

Mrs Baker, Mrs Rigby and Mrs Chapman hope the first day of home learning went smoothly?  Hopefully you all tried your hardest with the work we sent home but also enjoyed the sunshine. 


We just want to clarify that the Stormbreaker activity booklet is an on-going activity.  We don't expect it to be completed this week! laugh


We will be adding your next home learning activities on Monday morning.  Any problems, then let one of the Year 5 team know.
