I hope you have all had a wonderful Christmas break and wishing you all a very happy new year.
I miss seeing you all back to school. To my Victoria, please remember that although you are not together in the classroom, you are not alone. Our Remote Schooling model and purplemash and class pages enable us to continue your educational journeys and to provide good mental health and wellbeing. Togetherness, focus, and a healthy dose of good humour will really help us all now.
The weekly tasks are available from our class learning blog and it is updated regularly. To do your task, you may need your basic stationaries such as a pen, a pencil, a ruler, a rubber, and a notebook or paper. Please ensure that you always record your work as it is important to practise your handwriting and presentation.
You should be proud of yourself for the progress that you all have made in reading since September. Please remember to read a bedtime story or hear from your grown-ups if they can or you can visit our class favourite website http://myths.e2bn.org/.
If you are unsure about anything or need more support please remember that you can contact me through purplemash or our class email id email@example.com.

Welcome Back Victoria!
It is so lovely to see that the children have settled so well into Year 5 and are really enjoying being back at school, learning lots of new exciting things. We hope that this can continue, but we understand that it may be necessary for your child to self-isolate due to Coronavirus. It is important that we all play our part and are vigilant to prevent the spread of Coronavirus and your child’s health and well-being are the number one priority to all staff at school.
Reading – Each child is given a reading pack which includes their reading leveled book, reading record, and the Year 5 theme-based book – Holes. Children in KS2 should be reading for 20 minutes every night. Parents/Carers should be using the reading record regularly to allow the teacher to monitor what is being read at home. Reading packs should be brought to class each morning and taken home each afternoon.
When Do I have PE?
Victoria’s PE days are Mondays and Fridays. PE kit should be brought to class on these days and taken home each afternoon. Unfortunately, if you do not bring your PE kit into school then you will not be able to participate in PE for that session. As a reminder, can children also not come to school wearing earrings on PE days. Earrings cannot be removed at school as per the risk assessment in order to keep everyone safe.
