Swifts - Year 5 / 6 Class
Welcome to Swifts Class Page.
'Swifts fly high and travel far'.
Swifts Class Commemorate VE Day
Summer 1 Home Learning
Welcome back Swifts Class. I hope that you are all doing well and managed to have a good Easter! I have been enjoying seeing and hearing about many of you working hard at home - well done! Please continue to send your photos and work via email or Twitter. It is important that we all continue to practise our learning skills from home in what are very unusual circumstances.
Each day, you will be provided with a code to access 'Learning by Questions' to practise your skills in maths and 'SPAG'. Additionally, I will be setting a science task for you to complete on LBQ - the day you access this is up to you. There will also be a daily English document for you to follow. This will direct you through some really interesting reading and writing activities. Please complete these every day. It might be a good idea for you to create your own timetable to help with your home learning!
After you have completed your LBQ work, I suggest that you decide on a project based activity to do in the afternoon. It may be that you want to work on the Geography project we have set up for you, or RE or Art etc. It might be that you are completing some creative activities such as baking, gardening, practising your sporting skills etc - it is important to continue to practise the different skills required for different activities! Please do remember to take a break (as you would do at school) so that you can refresh yourself ready for your next task!
Remember that we are still in competition with Robins Class on 'Times Tables Rockstars'. At the moment they are winning 3-0! I will be continuing to post ideas and activities for you to have a go at onto our class page. I hope that you enjoy your next set of home learning.
Keep working hard and keep positive during this time. I look forward to seeing you all working hard once again. Stay safe.
Swifts Class Gallery
Swifts Class have been working very hard on their home learning. I have been impressed to receive the images and videos so far and look forward to seeing and hearing about more of your learning. I hope that you enjoy seeing your friends too! Remember to email your pictures / videos and let me know that it is OK to put them on our web page. Keep up the good work Swifts Class!
