Hello Year 5 superstars.

Hope you are all well and staying safe. I am missing you all lots.

J Well done for all the awesome work you have done so far.

 

I thought this week we might do a cross-curricular learning project based on a short film called ‘The Catch’. You can find a link to it here - https://www.literacyshed.com/the-other-cultures-shed.html

 

Choose one or two of these activities to do each day… or come up with your own (be as creative/exciting as you like!). Please upload any work that you do onto our class shared folder on the school website.
