Year 5

30th March 2020

Hello everyone,

We’re sure you are working hard on the booklets sent home with you as we finished school. 

Weekly tasks will also be assigned to you on Purple Mash. This week, there are some maths, English and ICT challenges for you. Due date is Friday 3rd April in most cases. 

Hope you are working hard for your adults!

Take care,

The Year 5 Teachers

Contact the school if you need a login reminder - you all tried them before the shutdown.  Remember they work for Mangahigh and Times Table Rock Stars too.

We are competing in the Everton in the Community 'Top of the Rocks' against some other Merseyside schools.  We need people to score as many points as they can on Times Table Rock stars. 

Here you can download the home learning packs sent out when the school closed and see links to our favourite websites
