Class 11 (Year 5)

Home Timetables for learning

This is a timetable designed to help you whilst you are not in school. This is a recommendation to help with the day if necessary.


Remember to take regular breaks to keep you focused!


Class 11 and 12 have set up "home study documents". These are both in the packs sent home with children and accessible here on the website. These tasks outlined in the "home study documents" are to be completed in the books provided in the home study packs.


These documents contain a number of links to helpful websites that will support children in their home learning. As well as tasks to be completed.


This document contains all of the tasks that you will need to complete. It will explain each writing task, pick 1 a day and complete it. Remember how important it is to complete these tasks to further your learning.


A new one (along with the relevant pictures or paragraphs) will be be placed on the website on Friday ready for next week.
