Autumn Term 2020
After a very strange few months of home learning, we happily welcome you all back to school. This term, we are balancing Year 4 and Year 5 objectives to close any gaps that may have appeared during lockdown. In class, we will be focusing on mental health and wellbeing as a result of the unprecedented times we are living in at the moment. We will ensure that every child feels safe and is happy in their school environment.
All children in Year 5 have a Times Table Rockstars login. Times Table Rockstars is a fantastic website for children to practise their times tables. https://play.ttrockstars.com/auth/school/student/26502
Sometimes, Miss Gibson may set homework on the Purple Mash website. Your child will also have a login for Purple Mash. Purple Mash is amazing for exploring ICT objectives such as coding or keeping safe online. https://www.purplemash.com/sch/mitton
BBC Bitesize is a wonderful website for all subjects. There are many tutorials online that can help support your child's learning. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/levels/zbr9wmn
