Hi Year 5,
I hope you have all had a wonderful half term and kept safe and well whilst enjoying the beautiful sunshine. We are now in our final term of the school year and although we couldn't have predicted that term 6 would have been like this, I hope that the advice from a sunflower above, gives you a small ray of positivity!
Mr Burchett and I will continue to set your remote learning work on the class page and are here to help if you need any guidance or support.
Keep up with all your hard work and dedication to your learning, you should all be so proud of what you have achieved in this time.

Friday 1st May 2020- The City of Ember text study
Next week are going to be reading the text 'The City of Ember' by Jeanne DuPrau.
I am aware that most children will not have this text at home so we are offering the following options:
1- You can collect a hard copy of the text from the school office from Monday morning.
2- You can email myself and I will send you a pdf version of the text.
We only have around 15 hard copies of the text at school (we are awaiting delivery of a class set) therefore they can be collected on a first come, first serve basis. Alternatively, we do have the option to send the pdf format electronically.
Coronavirus (COVID 19): list of online education resources for home education
The Department for Education have brought together an initial list of online educational resources to help children to learn at home. The majority of these are free and are available to you by clicking on the picture link above.
These websites have been identified by some of the country’s leading educational experts and offer a wide range of support and resources for pupils of all ages. This should support parents with additional resources for their children to access at home.
Good luck exploring and enjoy!
Remote Learning Update- 20.04.2020
Dear Parents and Children in the Penguin Class
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend, are making the most of the good weather we are having and are relaxed and refreshed for the week ahead! These are difficult, unprecedented times but by working together, supporting one another and having a positive outlook on things, I believe this can really make a difference and no doubt will do over the next couple of weeks.
There are probably many questions you will have- some for which I will have the answers and others for which I will not. However, I hope the information below provides you with some guidance on the 'Remote Learning' process for the Penguins Class over the coming weeks. Should you have any further questions, please email either Miss Morgan or myself and we will try to respond to you in a timely manner.
I look forward to supporting your child over this period and for their return to school in the not too distant future! I am thinking of you all and you are all in my prayers!
Mr M Burchett
Remote Learning Update- 17.04.2020
Please see the 'Year 3- Eagles' class page for more information regarding the way I am setting 'Remote Learning' during these unprecedented times. I really do hope all parents and children in the Penguins Class are well, staying safe and looking after one another.
The Eagles Class Page will also provide you with more of an idea of how we have gone about our 'Remote Learning'- we have created a blog which celebrates their Home Learning examples, put areas for additional Remote Learning activities and created a TTRS leaderboard which the children can view from home.
I will update this page further over the weekend with more class specific information for the Penguins Class and update you on the way I envisage 'Remote Learning' heading over the next few weeks. At present, I am teaching at St Simon's on Thursday and Friday, providing education for children of key workers. I will respond to all emails and contact form information in as timely a manner as possible.
Stay safe and God Bless!
Mr M. Burchett
