Thank you to all parents who have been emailing or messaging on Dojo! 
 
If you have an urgent question, please message me on Dojo as I will receive the notification for it much quicker. :) 
Work is to be completed in the books that were sent home. It is not the expectation that the work be printed, however it should be neat and organized in the workbooks.
 
 
If your child has access to a computer, they are more than welcome to put their work onto a word document. This can be sent by email for any feedback, if you chose to do so please ensure that there is a name on the document with the child's first initial and last name. For example: E. Johnson 
These documents will only be seen by the Year 5 team. They will not be shared or duplicated. 
 
Please refer to the Maths Support document in helping your child's learning. The Year 5 team are available to talk and assist during school hours. We are happy to support you in your child's home learning, so please ask us any questions. 
 
The schedule seen is not fixed, just a recommendation on how to spread out the learning time during the week. The work may fluctuate depending on pre-existing academic needs of the children assessed earlier in the term. 
 
Stay healthy and safe in these uncertain times.
