Working from home - Summer 2
Working from home – Summer 2
Welcome back! We hope you had a lovely half term rest. From June onwards, we will be providing more structured lessons to be completed at home. Each overview, added weekly in a tab above, will also be followed by the children of key workers who are in school. Guidance is given on this page with links to online websites where resources for lessons can be found. As with all the learning ideas we have provided so far, please use resources flexibly and ensure children have regular breaks between tasks. We’d like to continue to encourage work (and anything else you’d like to share) to be sent to us using the email address email@example.com Please use the same email address to ask questions if further support or clarification is needed 😊
Daily reading could include reading for pleasure to yourself or out loud to someone at home or a comprehension task from the CGP booklet collected from school. Some authors are reading their books online for children to listen to. Find David Walliams reading extracts from his books at https://www.worldofdavidwalliams.com/elevenses-catch-up/ JK Rowling is also releasing a chapter a day from her new book. You can find this at https://www.theickabog.com/read-the-story
You may wish to swap the order of the English lessons on the timetable or pick and choose sessions which are more preferable. In addition (or as a lighter alternative), children could complete a 10-minute workout from the CGP booklet collected from school.
Alternatives to the suggested White Rose Maths, can be found at BBC Bitesize, National Oak Academy or by using Maths: No Problem! and CGP workbooks from school.
Further details of Topic lessons are provided under each weekly timetable.

Doodle daily to maintain a minimum of 50 stars over 7 days in each Doodle Maths, Doodle English and Doodle Spell. Children who achieve this are celebrated by their names appearing on the Doodle leader board on the Staying in Touch tab of the Year 5 class page on the school website. Test your spellings weekly by completing the Extras on Doodle Spell.
Finally, please remember the value of daily physical activity, not just for a healthy body but a healthy mind also. This could be a kick about in the garden, a walk round the block or further afield, a Joe Wicks workout, a bike ride, creating your own circuit workout or anything else that gets the heart rate going!
