Years 5 & 6

Please note this is an overview of what can be found on Google Classroom!

Our approach is to give children and parents working at home lots of ideas, suggestions and opportunities to learn.  But we have no expectation that specific tasks are completed.  We understand that this is a difficult time for everyone and feel the most important thing is that children and families are safe and happy.  It is likely that schools will be closed for some time and so you need to establish a routine and expectations of your children that are sustainable.  Please do what you can when you can and don't put undue pressure on yourself or your children.  Teachers will continue to set work and make suggestions but these are simply opportunities for children.
