Year 5 ~ OWLS
Hello Owl Class and welcome back after the break!
We hope you have been having fun during your time off and you are all keeping well, keeping busy and have been enjoying a bit of fresh air and sunshine in the garden!
Well done to those of you that have continued to use Timestable Rockstars, keep up the good work!
We hope you've been able to look at the home learning packs; you will notice a weekly timetable has been included for you to follow too.
Below you will find links to our class page and curriculum map for this half term so you can see what our topic will be for Summer 2. Please have a look at them, it might give you some ideas as to what you can research to keep busy, so you do not miss out on any learning.
As well as all of the log-ins for different websites that you have, you will also find included a few websites of really excellent ideas and resources you can look at to keep you busy. The PE with Joe Wicks is an excellent way to get you moving at the start of the day and so easy to access on YouTube - please try it out!
Please continue to take photographs of your new learning so that we can share them when we all see each other again. We look forward to who will learn the most unusual new skill or do the most exciting new activity!
Don't forget to keep using TTRS, Bug Club, Doodle Maths and Education City for more learning! We can see who is using them well and will allocate more books as needed.
Remember to keep using your Christian values in all that you do – you are so good at that!
Be kind to each other and take care,
Mrs Taylor and Mrs Fitter.

Example Home learning timetable
- Every day Joe Wicks (The Body Coach) is completing a daily workout for children and adults. Apparently it's quite hard work. Complete it every day here:
- Our Sports Partnership has produced a list of things the children can do to keep active in the garden. Being outdoors as much as possible will keep your mind refreshed and yourselves positive!
Sports Partnership challenges - Get Active!
- Not sure what methods your child uses in maths to add, subtract, multiply and divide? Look at the school's calculation policy for help.

- ISING POP! We all love iSing Pop at St Margaret's. They have started their own YouTube channel where you can learn new songs, watch bible stories and next week learn all about the Easter story. They are constantly updating it. Subscribe and get singing!
- Every day David Walliams is reading a story at 11am. The site often crashes due to so many people being on there but the story stays on for the day. Go and listen to one!
- Edinburgh zoo have put live webcams into some of their enclosures so you can check out some of the animals! Maybe observe them and write a report!
- If you’ve got an AR-enabled phone, you can now bring select animals like tigers right into your space for a safari. Put a tiger into your garden or even your house! Below are some instructions on how to do it!
- Carol Vorderman has a site which is excellent for supporting maths. She has made it free or the foreseeable future. Sign up today!
