Year 5 Learning from Home


Good Morning Year 5,

It was lovely to see most of you on Friday, Miss Allen, Miss Hemphill and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your lovely cards, gifts and well wishes xx

I loved everyday of being your teacher in Year 5, I am sad our time was cut short!  Thank you to  each and everyone of you for all your hard work over lockdown! I just loved opening my emails and seeing your hard work and beautiful photos.  Parents thank you for all your help and support at this time.

I hope you all have a super summer and see you in September.

See some of our memories below and some pictures of you over lockdown.  

We also want to wish some of you a super birthday in July and August.

Good Morning Year 5, I am really looking forward to seeing you all on Friday.  Just a little reminder for you all to send me your favourite memories activity and your WAU evaluation.  I hope you are all well.

Could you please also return your mental maths book in addition to the other books I previously listed.

Good Morning Year 5, can you believe we have nearly finished this school term.  It definitely isn't how we expected Year 5 to end, nonetheless, I am so proud of each and everyone of you.  I am sure you have all completed your work every week.  Thank you to the parents and pupils who sent me work and photos I just loved seeing these. 

This week I am asking you to complete two activities to send to me, if you send me your end of year activity sheet (or a page designed by yourself) by Friday, I will upload these for everyone to see next Monday.   The rest are just for fun, feel free to complete these anytime or even over the summer. 

Miss Allen, Miss Hemphill and I look forward to seeing you all on Friday morning, hopefully the weather will be nice.

Take care Year 5 and remember...

Libraries NI is delighted to announce details of ‘Silly Squad’, Summer Reading Challenge 2020 produced by The Reading Agency and delivered by libraries which will take place from Monday 15 June.

 The Silly Squad, Summer Reading Challenge, is a free, exciting way to keep young people aged 4 - 11 years reading during the summer months.

Silly Squad is a celebration of funny books, happiness and laughter. This year the Challenge will be delivered through a fun, immersive and safe online platform. The aim is to encourage children to challenge themselves to read any number of books which makes them happy, in digital or print format, an eBook borrowed from the Libraries NI online catalogue or books they already have at home.  

 Throughout the summer there will be online activities, videos, quizzes, games and rewards to unlock along the way. Every child who completes their own Challenge will receive a downloadable certificate.

Happy Reading everyone!

Hello Year 5,

I hope you and your family are all well, I am missing you all a lot and look forward to seeing you all again. I am sure you have found the past few weeks very different to our normal daily routine, so have I! However, like me I am sure you are finding lots of fun activities to keep you busy and not too much computer time I hope! Please remember to stay safe online and have all your Apps set to private!

We are due to get our Easter Holidays now on Wednesday, so then you can take a little break from your school work. I hope you have been completing at least one literacy and one numeracy activity per day. In your pack you should still have over a week’s work left, after Easter I will update the website on a Monday and Wednesday setting you new work for the week and some fun activities.

I have prepared you some Easter activities including colouring, activity pages, The Easter story – you could maybe make a comic strip, a nature scavenger hunt and a bird scavenger hunt – when I have been out on my daily walk I have enjoyed spotting birds and listening to them, this always reminds me of you all! I have also included a Covid 19 Time Capsule booklet – I thought this would be a good way of recording your memories of this time, in the future we will look back at these strange days as a moment in history. You could have your own little history book to show your family and friends. And finally I have also uploaded some Thank you colouring pages for all those Key Workers who are working extremely hard to look after the sick, provide us with food, empty our bins… The list could go on but we thank them all for everything they are doing for each and everyone of us!

Please stay safe Year 5, wash your hands and enjoy eating your Easter Eggs!!

Love From

Miss Baxter xx

Miss Allen and Miss Hemphill are also missing you all very much and wanted me to say a big hello from them! Have a lovely Easter xx
