Home Learning

Please read the information below and see subject links.  

We have set up a Class Dojo page for parents and children to stay in contact with the class teacher. Activities will be set at a later date. Please continue to use Purple Mash and the school website for home learning activities.

Summer Term 

I hope you all had a lovely Easter and enjoyed some family time. It is now the summer term and we have decided to revisit topics that we have covered earlier in the year to help build on our knowledge and work on our independence. There is a grid of activities for you to choose from as well as two maths, two reading and a writing activity. It might be a good idea (as an independent year 5 pupil) to create your own timetable to show when you will complete the work! :)  

Please continue to use Purple Mash and our ClassDojo page to show me your home learning and I will continue to check daily and respond to any queries.

Summer Poem 







Purple Mash

I will add 'to do's' on Purple Mash over the upcoming weeks that link to what we are learning in school or what we should be learning this term and children can complete these tasks online and submit to me to mark. The children should know their login and password. These tasks will cover a wide range of topics but Purple Mash is particularly good for spelling practice and times tables. 

Serial Mash Guidance - Serial Mash is a part of Purple Mash where children can access online books and activities related to them. This document shows what to do to access these.
