Transition week – Hello new Y5s!

Good morning Y5!

Welcome to your first week in Y5, and it is always one of my favourite weeks. I love getting to know a new class of people, but I always feel a little nervous too.

It’s a little strange this year, but hopefully you’ve all got your transition packs. Throughout lock down, I created videos for my class to help explain tasks, so I thought it would be nice to do the same for you guys 🙂

Below is a video for each task along with a French task from Madame Griggs! You don’t have to watch them, but it might help you with some ideas and also help you feel like we are getting to know each other. Feel free to email me any of your work that you do as it would be great to see what you get up to and help get to know my new class even more 🙂

Here are the PowerPoints Mrs Croft and I have made. You can use these as examples or just look at to get to know us better 🙂

Transition Week home learning

Dear Parents and Carers,

Many of you will have received your child’s home learning pack for transition week in the post, and if you haven’t already, I know you’ll be eagerly waiting by the letter box!

If your child attends school in a bubble, they might have brought it home with them already. Also, children who are in school on a Monday or Tuesday will be given their packs in person.

For children who are attending school in the last week of term, there will be lots of time and support to complete the activities here at school. However, we still wanted you to have a copy of the activities so you could share in the experience and talk about it together at home.

We would really encourage you to share your home learning during transition week with your new child’s teacher/s. Some activities can be posted back to school in the envelope provided. Alternatively, sent a picture to them via email (new class teacher emails are included in the packs). Check out your new year group class blog for updates too!

Below are the packs for your information. We have tried (really hard!) to make sure the correct pack was posted to the correct child, but just in case one slipped through the net, here are the resources for you to access.

If you have any questions, or we can help in any way, please do not hesitate to get in touch.

The Last Day of Y5! (and Y5 Home Learning…)

Hi Y5!

It’s here! Your final day of Y5. Do you remember me telling you on your first day with me how fast Y5 will go?

Here are the final videos from me. I filmed the Big Fat Quiz of Y5 last night. I hope you have fun with it! If you can, why not play along with the family and have a bit of a quiz night? 🙂

I’ve also attached the newsletter from Mrs Croft. I had nothing to do with who she has put as a lockdown superstar this week, but the photo she has found is very dashing 😉

I want to give a big shout out to every single one of you. We have all had very different situations to cope with, and we have still engaged with a lot of our Home Learning. Some of us have been in the Hub from the very start of lockdown, and a lot of us haven’t stepped foot near school since March. You have all been fantastic, and I’m gutted we didn’t have the Summer term together as I’m sure we would have had a brilliant time.

I want to give a big shout out to parents as well! Many of you have juggled working from home or even still working during the crisis, and I cannot thank you enough for ensuring your children were happy and safe whilst trying to do as much as the Home Learning as you could. Thank you.

Every single one of you are fabulous and can’t wait to see you all in September.

Mr Cooper

Morning everyone!

What a windy few days! I’m trying to remember the last time we had a June and July that was this mild and breezy…

Well, it’s actually here. Your final week of Y5. Do you remember what I said on your very first day? It is going to fly by. It certainly has!

Here are your videos for today. Your Wider Curriculum video where we reflect on your time time in Y5 will be uploaded later as it is going to be a video with myself AND Mrs Croft! I’m going to attempt to record the zoom and then upload it to my YouTube channel. Fingers crossed!

*UPDATE* It worked! I managed to record a zoom with Mrs Croft and chat about our memories of Y5. It’s a bit long, whoops!


Sum2 wk6 – Home Learning

Hi!

I completely forgot to upload the Home Learning on Friday, I’m so sorry!

Here is your final Home Learning as Y5s! As normal, your last week of school will be transition where you are all Y6s :0

This week, your DO NOWs on maths and English are from across the year, so the categories will change each day. The Wider Curriculum is all about reflecting on our time together in Y5. Please make sure you put aside some time to take a good look at that work this week as it is always one of the favourite times of year.

There might even be a few extra special videos for those lessons, so keep an eye out…

It’s Friday again!

Thank you to everyone who has done another week of Home Learning. I know at times it has required a lot of resilience and patience, but it is so important that you keep ticking over and recapping you knowledge and skills ready for what looks like a return in September!

Have a great weekend, and get ready for your final week as a Year 5! 😮

It’s such a drizzly day! It’s a chance to do your Home Learning, and help around the house or maybe do some baking (this is great baking weather).
