Welcome-to-year-5

Good Morning Year 5 and a Happy New Year to you all. 

I am so sorry that we are unable to do our learning together in our Year 5 classroom at the moment, but instead we all need to stay at home to keep safe and well.

I hope that we will be back together very soon as Mrs. Dailey, Mrs. Sisson and I are really missing you all. 

All your home learning tasks will be set on Google Classroom just like your homework. 

As a class we will meet each morning (Mon-Thurs) at 11:00am via google meet to register and hear about the exciting tasks you have ahead. Please be prompt, and dressed appropriately for our learning (no pyjamas!). Our morning video session will last around 20 minutes and will cover the day with some feedback.

You can access this meeting by clicking on the Google Meet video link at the top of our class page on Google Classroom. 

If you want to share your learning with me, please do so via Google Classroom uploads and not via email. Many thanks, 

Miss Williams x
