Year 5

Greetings Families,

I hope you are all keeping well. On this page, we will make available some work for students to look at and complete during school closures. It's a bit of a stressful time for everyone, so we are endeavouring to keep things as consistent as possible. I will be updating this page weekly, and sending a text to confirm this. Our page has had a bit of an update, so hopefully it's easier for you to find everything. I will also be assigning work on Purple Mash, as well as TimesTables Rock Stars, and comminication will be open on Classroom Dojo.

Rainbows for NHS Nightingale 

NHS rainbows: Volunteers are helping to gather the pictures for the Excel centre'Nightingale hospital in London is open and ready to help the UK and NHS deal with the growing demand of coronavirus.  The NHS staff and creators of the centre have a job for our children to help cheer everyone up - rainbow pictures.'

You could show your support by creating a rainbow and sticking in your window as a sign of hope and to show you care.  The NHS do not want you to send your rainbow to them but they can be shared online by an adult.  Full details of what to do can be found here.

Please send photos of your rainbow pictures to our Superheroes School email address at the bottom of this page. It would be wonderful to see your beautiful rainbows!
