Welcome to Year 5!
This is the place where you will find out about what we have been up to in class, information about work and routines and also pictures of our fab pupils learning.
The page should contain all of the information you should need throughout the year and includes a box where you can contact school if you have any questions. We hope you enjoy looking through and seeing what your children have been up to and also
that you find the resources provided helpful and useful.
We have made a good start to the year all together as a class and look forward to all the learning experiences which are yet to come!
Mr Klee & Mrs Millington
Hello everyone. Regrettably it has become necessary for us to use the Home Schooling section of the web-page for those pupils who are unable to attend school over the coming weeks. I will be teaching the same lessons in class for the pupils attending school so when we do reunite as a class, everyone will have covered the same learning.
The English and Maths lessons follow on from one another so it is important to do the work in the order that it is set out on the website.
The work set is pitched at a Year 5 standard. Pupils may find some of it challenging and may need support. I have tried to add some suggestions as to how some of the tasks can be adapted where possible. If pupils are finding an activity too difficult, please do not worry. I know also that many of you will be balancing working with home schooling and I know first hand some of the challenges that brings. It is vital that children continue to work but please be kind to yourselves and do as much as you can and don't worry about the things that you can't.
In addition to the work posted, some of the most useful things pupils can do daily are reading and Times Table Rockstars.
I will post more information on here during the week. If you have any questions please use the email to contact me. I will be in school teaching all mornings and most afternoons but will respond as promptly as I am able to. Thank you for your continued support,
I hope you and your families stay safe and well,
If you have any questions about the home learning, please fill in the form below.
In October we took part in UK parliament week. We learned what Parliament is, all about the House of Commons and even got the chance to ask write and ask some questions to our local MP Anthony Higinbotham with Year 6 who joined us for an online Q & A session. We were extremely proud of some of the brilliant questions which the children asked and I know some parents got involved and helped with so me questions too which was brilliant! Anthony didn’t get an easy ride. Some of the questions he was asked included:
Do you agree with Boris Johnson that children should not receive free school meals in half term?
What have you done to help the people of Burnley?
How will you help create more jobs and opportunities for the people of Burnley?
Why is your government spending £100,000,000 on a railway line instead of protecting the environment?
How are you helping the poorer people of Burnley and what can we do at school to help?
Do you think that politics should be taught in school as part of the curriculum so that when children are old enough to vote we will actually know what we are voting for?
These are just a small selection of questions asked by Years 5 & 6 and Anthony answered every one. We are grateful for his time and look forward to him joining us in school when we are able to to ask him some more questions!
