Hello Year 5! It’s Mr Beattie!

No school? No problem! To keep you all on your toes, I have some learning activities for you to complete (see the grid below). Work your way through the activities and have fun! Be sure to log on to TT Rockstars to keep your timetables knowledge in tip-top shape and make sure you check in at Education City, where I’ve set a whole range of different activities, covering English, Science and Maths. Without PE lessons, it’s important you get in some exercise – if you can’t get outdoors, then join in with Joe Wickes each day instead.

It’s a strange and difficult time right now. I’m really missing the ‘buzz’ of being in class with you all and can’t wait until we’re all back together learning and having fun in the classroom.

Stay safe and keep up the learning!

We are keen to keep in touch with you and your child. We would love to hear what your child is doing at home and to see photos of your child playing games or of work completed. If you have any further questions about their home learning, please get in touch via the email address below.
