Good Morning Year 5

Even in lockdown, the weekends go fast!

I am in school again later this week so I will contact more parents to see how you are getting on.  Don't worry if I have not contacted your family, I am making my way through the list.

You must not feel like they have to be doing all the work I set, do what works for your situation, and please do not feel under pressure.  I know many of you, who are not uploading work onto School Spider, are doing lots of learning at home.  If you want to let me know what you have been up to, leave a comment online.  I would love to hear about it. 

This week, I would like you to –

Complete your 5 a day
