Hi Year 5!

I hope you are all still well. 

I can't believe we only have 3 more weeks until the end of the academic year. The time is going so quickly, so let's make the most of the last few weeks of home learning.

I have updated the page with further links, activities and ideas for you. Try to make time for some English and Maths each day and then spend the afternoons doing a lesson of your choice.

For our You Tube video this week, Miss Campbell is launching a brand new competition on behalf of the Hartshill and Harpfields Residents Association. How exciting! You will need to take a photograph or draw or paint a picture that represents your experience of life in the local area during the Covid 19 lock-down. I have emailed you with the link to the video so you can find out more information.

Mrs Bekalo has also set you two challenges this week on her You Tube video. I have also sent you the link for this. One of those is to join the Good Shepherd Mass on Monday (29th) at 10am.

I am missing all of your smiling faces and can't wait to see you all soon. Keep me up to date with what you are getting up to by email. It would be lovely to hear from you. 

Take care, 

Miss Kontic.

Please click here if you missed the letter that was sent home on Friday 20th March. It includes my email address if you wish to contact me.
