Y5/6 - Y5/6A, Y5/6B and Y5/6C Home Learning - Summer 1 Term - Week 2

Home Learning - Summer 1 Term

We hope you have all been keeping safe and well whilst at home - it has been lovely to see what some of you have been getting up to via the new Ivanhoe Primary Facebook Page and our twitter account!

We have put together some learning tasks for you to have a look at over the next few weeks - if you want to! The learning tasks are all about recapping what we have already learnt so far this year ... September seems such a long time ago now so I have tried to do some examples and put some links in to video tutorials in case you need some tips on what to do!

You don't need to print anything off if you don't have a printer - just have a go at the questions in a notebook or on a piece of paper. If you do some work you are really proud off then get your grown up to take a picture and put it on our facebook page or twitter so we can see it!

REMEMBER - You don't have to complete these activities in one go! Take your time and do a little bit each day ... You can use this time at home to have fun with your family too!!!

Keep Safe and we are missing you all.

Mrs Sedgwick. Mrs Noble, Miss Cartwright, Mrs Regan and Miss Whittaker
