Update April 20th 2020:
The DfE have asked us to make all parents aware that they have created model lessons and resources for all academies available at this link: https://www.thenational.academy/online-classroom
There are also daily lessons available via the BBC Bitesize link here:
Of course our Harris Primary Academy Orpington teachers will continue to develop and post materials every week for the children via these pages but if your child wishes to try the other materials then we are happy to provide the links above.
Year 5 children have been provided with a school exercise book in which to record their home learning.
Details will be uploaded onto this page regularly each Friday and will include:
- Each day the children should read for half an hour
- Children will need to complete one piece of writing each day
- Children will need to complete one Spelling, Punctuation or Grammar exercise each day
- Children will need to complete one piece of handwriting exercise each day.
- Children will need to complete one arithmetic exercise each day and one piece of maths learning each day.
- Pupils need to practice all their times tables each day so that they know them ‘off by heart’.
- Students will have overviews from their History and Geography units from this academic year and can chose a unit to further research and present as a newspaper/ information book/ etc from each subject. E.g. “My guide to the Romans”. The expectation is for one research piece of project learning per week.
- Pupils will also have a times table pack and their times table rockstar books sent home.
Purple Mash is an online website where learning resources and provision for your child's year group can be accessed and downloaded. The password and web addresss details for Year 5 are as follows:
Our expectations are that Year 5 children should spend a total of 5 hours learning each day. We ask that parents sign to record this at the end of each day for their children in their exercise book.
