Welcome to Branson Class! We are Year 5!
Welcome to the summer term and what a VERY different term it is! We hope you are all well and staying safe!
Thank you so much for all the fabulous Google Classroom work you have completed so far -You are amazing!
Our theme of EXPLORERS will be continuing for the first half of the summer term. We will continue to read The Explorer by Katherine Rundell and research the everyday life of the Mayan people. In Science, we are continuing to investigate different forces then we will be moving onto learning about living things and their habitats. In art, we will be taking a trip along an artistic timeline finding out about significant periods and artists such as Leonardo da Vinci! Time zones will also be our focus for Geography learning in the coming weeks. Maths and English sessions will be set daily but these will focus more on consolidating learning from the last two terms with some new elements along the way. Please continue to do as you have been doing since the schools have closed - logging into Google Classroom every Monday - Friday to find out what your daily learning tasks are and working hard!
These are very strange times and all we ask is that you try your best every day to complete as many of your learning tasks as possible. Please do not worry if you do not manage to get them all done. Take time to exercise and get fresh air every day, help your grown-ups out around the house and why not have a go at learning something new, such as a card game or baking (with adult supervision) a cake. School will be waiting for you on the other side!
We miss you all very much and can't wait to get back to school but until then stay safe, stay happy and keep on smiling! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact us on our Branson email address, which you'll find on the Home Learning Organiser below.
