Home Learning Year 5

A message from the Year 5 team to all the children of Year 5…

We would love to hear from you and see some of your work so use this email to contact us: y5@northdenes.norfolk.sch.uk we can also assist you with home learning.

The first week is nearly over and we are sure it has been a steep learning curve – it has for us! To try and help you, Mrs Noble-Parker is sharing her timetable. Please do not feel it is something you have to follow, it is more a model to be adapted to suit your family needs. Suggested Timetable

Here is a checklist of the basic expectations of what children should be doing on a daily basis:

  •  Reading
  • Timestables practice
  • Spelling practice
  • Arithmetic – addition, subtraction, division and multiplication.
  • Exercise

Attached is a document that outlines activities for a week. This will be updated every term time week and posted on this page.
