Should your child need to self-isolate or if we experience a local lockdown we will use the resources on this page to continue your child’s learning at home so that no future learning is lost. Teachers will continue to communicate with parents or guardians using ClassDojo. This page is for children in Year 5 who are pupils in Class 9 with Mrs Frost or Class 10 with Mr Chambers.
Your child must follow the daily schedule for their year group on the Oak National Academy. They can also access Education City, Oxford Owl, The Spelling Shed and Numbots to support their learning at home.
Click the link below to access Oak National Academy, the online classroom made by teachers, for teachers. You will have access to free, high-quality video lessons and resources to support your child’s learning in English, maths, science and the Foundation subjects at home. They are delivered by a teacher, with a pre-recorded video as well as quizzes, worksheets and creative activities. It’s all easy to use, there’s no login or password, you can access our lessons on any device, and pupils only need materials they can find at home.
At the beginning of year 5, pupils should be able to read aloud a wider range of poetry and books written at an age-appropriate interest level with accuracy and at a reasonable speaking pace. They should be able to read most words effortlessly and to work out how to pronounce unfamiliar written words with increasing speed. If the pronunciation sounds unfamiliar, they should ask for help in determining both the meaning of the word and how to pronounce it correctly.
Please continue to read on a daily basis with your child and ask them questions about the text.
We have access to a new online learning platform called NumBots. This game is aimed at boosting addition and subtraction skills for all aged children. Since the success of Times Tables Rockstars in encouraging children to master times table and division fact instant recall, we would like their skills with mental addition and subtraction to be just as good. NumBots will help! More importantly, children in both Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2 can access the games. All children start at the same place in Story mode, and when they get to a certain stage they will unlock Challenge mode. The idea is that they play little and often, and this will significantly improve their understanding of number bonds and addition and subtraction facts.
The login is exactly the same as the one for Times Tables Rockstars.
