White Rose, the maths curriculum we currently use in school, has created home-learning for most year groups. It will be updated regularly.  It relies on worksheets but most of them do not need to be printed off, so children could work on paper.

Children's author, Oliver Jeffers, is also reading his books live on Instagram then putting them on his website daily. Go to https://www.oliverjeffers.com/books. His books are charming and beautifully illustrated too!

Welcome to Herons Class Page

Mrs Savage, Mrs Dyas and Miss Holly would like to welcome you to Herons' Class page. Throughout the year, we will endeavour to update this page with all the latest pictures and information.  

Children in Year 5 are increasingly encouraged to take responsibility for their own learning: to do their homework, to pack their school bag, to remember their PE kits. As a result, they will develop and grow in confidence and resilience. It is about encouraging independence in preparation for bigger things to come.

Amazing opportunities are happening this term for Year 5.
