Friday 8th January
Dear Year 5 Parents
Firstly, can we wish you all a belated very Happy New Year and thank you for all continuing support during these challenging times.
Well, we survived the first week of on-line learning and the children were enthusiastic and responsive; it was great to have the interaction with the children on a daily basis and we hope that as the week progressed, were able to work with greater independence. We teachers too have been on a ‘learning curve’ so we have learnt a lot through trial and error.
Please find below our learning planner for the week January 11th – January 15th which gives the timings when we will be delivering the live sessions on Showbie and an overview of the lessons being covered.
The children can complete their work either by using the pen function on Showbie; by typing a document and uploading it or by completing the task in their home learning books and then uploading a picture of their work to Showbie.
The children seem to be completing their tasks in the allocated time. There might be some children who finish a task more quickly than others so we are suggesting that they work on a topic on an area of their own choice and work on it when they have spare time. This is not an extra assignment and there will be children who do not have the time to do this.
We are also keen for the children to continue with their regular reading of books of their own choice. We have asked them to record the name of completed books and the author at the back of their English books so we can look at the range of their reading materials when we eventually return to school.
Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us should you have any questions; you can do this via email or through the comment section in Showbie.
We hope you all manage to have a restful weekend.
Best wishes and keep safe.
