Home Learning 2019-2020

Week beginning 13th July 2020


Dear Year 5 parents/carers,


Welcome to Week 14 – the week that we’ve all been waiting for: Year 5 are back! After 116 days (16 weeks & 4 days… or 3 months and 24 days… or  2,784 hours… well, you get the picture), we are pleased to welcome most of Year 5 back to school this coming Monday. We are looking forward to seeing the children after so long and we are pleased to be able to enjoy their company once again. As it is the final week of home learning, we would like to say thank you to you all as home school teachers for keeping your child(ren) going. This has been a strange experience for everyone and the work that has been produced at home and uploaded has been lovely to see and reassuring for us as teachers – we are very proud of your child(ren)’s efforts over this time!


Updates and learning for Week 14

The home learning timetable and resources are available in the week 14 resources folder below. For those in school at the beginning of the week, Wednesday to Friday activities can be completed and uploaded at home (see the week 14 timetable and upload list below). Those who are not returning to school can complete all activities at home and will need to upload the same activities as well as the Year 2 Buddy Activity.


Please upload evidence of:

  • Year 2 Buddy Activity (non-returners by Wednesday please)
  • Nonsense poem (all)
  • First News quiz questions (all)


Returning to school;

  • Please see the Parentmail from earlier in the week for school day timings.
  • We ask that your child(ren) wear their school uniform on Monday and PE kit on Tuesday.
  • Please send your child(ren) to school with a water bottle and a healthy snack (and packed lunch if your child is not having school dinners).
  • Pens and pencils will be provided.


Updates and learning for Week 15

There will be no home learning set on Monday 20th and Tuesday 21st July as all activities will be completed in school if your child is returning.


Please see the note on the timetable about returning items from Home Learning Packs to school on Monday 20th July (this includes; a copy of a core text, maths text book, S&S book and library books).


We are looking forward to seeing your child(ren) on Monday. Have a lovely weekend.

Online Safety

Due to the nature of home learning, your child(ren) may be spending more time using internet-connected devices. This is likely to mean that there will be times when you are unable to supervise them. If you would like some support and advice on how to keep your child(ren) safe online, there are a number of resources in the Online Safety section of the school website. The link below will take you directly to this page.


Please remember that you can access a wide range of resources on to help you with your learning.
