**Year 5 and 6**

**Mrs Hardy and Mrs Churchill**

Welcome to our class page. While school is closed, we still want to stay in touch. We will use this page for information about learning you can complete at home, suggestions of activities and games and to share photos.

One of the most important things you can do at home is **read**, **read** and **read**** **again!

**Learning at Home**

Each day:

~ Read for 20 minutes (or more!)

~ Practise your times tables - this could be playing Times Table Rock Stars (password in the front of your orange book)

For other ideas, look at our recommended websites below.

Answers for the learning pack sent home are still available if you scroll down.

Don’t forget to send us photos of you learning or of your completed work to Learning@thepinesschool.org.uk

**Week 2 Home Learning Challenges**

Starting Monday 30th March, you are aiming to earn 50 points in a week but can choose any combination to make that total (or higher). Complete any written or drawn tasks in your orange book. Ask an adult to sign for anything we won't be able to see. We'd love to see what you are up to so keep the photos coming in.

**Photos of Learning at Home**

It's great seeing what everyone is getting up to at home. Keep sending in your photos to learning@thepinesschool.org.uk.

__Year 6 CGP Book__

The answers for the home work for last week and this week are attached. The next set of pages is:

Maths - Arithmetic and puzzle

Reading - Test 6

Grammar - Puzzle

Aim to complete these pages by Wednesday 8th April.

**Reading Log**

I finished reading Mortal Engines by Philip Reeve on Sunday. There's a lot more death and destruction than I was expecting so I wouldn't recommend to the squeamish but if you like adventure and fantasy with heroic actions and horrific deaths all set hundreds of years in the future, read this book!

This is what Mrs Churchill is currently reading.

What are you all reading? Send in photos of you reading or the book you are reading.
