Home Learning Heroes!
You're all doing brilliantly with your home learning, but here are some highlights:
School Closure Information:
Firstly, a huge thanks for the support of all the parents/carers and a big well done to the children for being so resilient!
For children doing home learning:
Work will be set daily on Seesaw for your child to complete, which will include 1 maths lesson, 1 English lesson and 1 or 2 lessons for other subjects including topic, Science, Art etc. In addition to the work set, we suggest that your child logs on to Times Table Rockstars and Spelling Shed as well as doing some reading each day. We are trying to replicate as much as possible the learning your child would have been getting in school.
We understand that this is a challenging time and we want to do our part to make home learning as positive an experience as possible. Please get in touch via the office if you would like extra support or advice and we will do our best to help. If your child is having difficulty accessing the lessons please do let us know. If you are finding there is too much work, please prioritise the English and Maths and perhaps aim to do the Science/Topic over the course of the week.
For children in school:
Children in school will do the same lessons and learning as those at home. The school day begins at 8:30am and ends at 3:15pm. They will be in a small group and supported by adults from the Year 5 team. Either Mr Woods or Mrs Rollé-Ferguson will be in school each day along with the amazing team of LSA's. PE (taught by Mr Baynton) will continue to be on a Wednesday, so if your child is on that day, they should wear PE kit.
Previous curriculum maps:
Arriving and leaving school
Drop off - 8.40am - 9.00am via the 'Staff Entrance' doors. (These are the side doors near the Cathedral archway with 'staff entrance' written on them).
Collection - 3.30pm. Please collect your child from the large wooden doors outside Bristol Cathedral side entrance. We will bring the children over to the doors and line them up to release them once we have seen the adult collecting them.
PE will be on Wednesday mornings in school with Mr Baynton. Your child should come in to school in their PE kit and will remain in it for the day.
1 piece of Maths or English homework will be set for your child on Seesaw each week. In addition, they will have spellings set on Spelling Shed and should read at home 4-5 times for at least 15 minutes.
If your child does not have fruit provided by school, you can include some for them to have after the morning break. This should be a piece of fruit or some vegetables.
Please send your child to school with a filled water bottle as we are unable to provide drinking cups.
Belongings from home should be kept to a minimum. They should bring a coat, lunch box/bag, water bottle and can bring a book bag (if necessary). Your child should not bring in any additional items such as stationary or toys. Face masks do not need to be worn at school.
