Welcome to the Red Panda’s Home Learning Page for the summer term. I hope you had a good break and are looking forward to learning some new things.
This page will hopefully be the one place to pick up all of the learning for the term ahead, rather than having a new page each week.
Remember our priority is for you stay happy and healthy both physically and mentally, so these activities will be a way of giving some structure for your days at home.
I am always available via the Year5@littleplumstead.norfolk.sch.uk email address if you have any questions or want to share your work with us. You can also share any resources you come across that others might find fun or interesting and I will add them to the page.
A suggested timetable would be to start your day with something physical (I’ll admit I haven’t braved the Joe Wicks workouts yet!), then complete any English/Maths activities before lunchtime. Then dip into the other subject tasks over the course of the afternoon.
Remember to keep up with your reading, and if you can keep up with the Y5/6 spelling list attached below. The activities across the week will contain a mix of spelling, writing, reading and grammar.
I will attach each week as a pdf with the date so you can keep a tab on what’s been posted online.
Remember to get any times table practice you can – it’s always useful!
This will follow the same format as English – the week’s activities will be uploaded as a pdf and spaced out for each day. Our calculation policy is included below so you can see what we teach in school. If this leads to more questions, then fire away!
This is where I will list tasks for the other subjects in the same format as English and Maths.
VIRTUAL PE CHALLENGE!
The Norfolk Schools Games are setting up a series of online challenges for you to interact with at home, and join in with other schools. They are trying to get as much involvement as possible from Norfolk schools and they will be on a number of themes. The first challenge is a tennis one, which you can find here:
(Tennis – 27th April)
Athletics (11th May)
We will add future challenges to this part of the site. You can check in here for any further updates:
The team at Norfolk Schools Games have suggested you post your efforts on social media. There is no expectation from us that you do, but if you do please have a conversation with your children about sharing things online as we would in school. Discuss both the positive and negative consequences and allow them to make a decision about whether they share the content or not. Obviously we would expect you (the parent/carer) to share it using your own account should you have one. You may feel comfortable just emailing them directly instead.
This is the information they have provided about your entries.
Once you have recorded your entry, submit the video via any of our social media platforms by tagging Norfolk School Games in your post. You’ll also need to include your school name and year group.
