Class 5

Hello and welcome to the Class 5 remote learning page.  


We use Microsoft Teams to share the details of each lesson but this will give you an overview of the learning that is taking place.  


As well as all of these daily lessons, there is the opportunity to practise maths skills on Mathletics and TT Rockstars.  Don't forget to keep reading for pleasure and enjoyment.  If you are having trouble choosing a book or getting hold of the book you want to read, you can send a message on Teams.  


Week beginning 8th February



We are starting a unit of work on non-chronological reports.  We will examine the features of these types of texts, practise some particular sentence writing skills such as using colons and then gather information for our text about pandas.  Once this is done we will write a couple of the sections of the report before the end of the week
