Barton Moss Primary School

Year 5

Hi Year 5 

I hope you are all keeping safe and well while we are all having to stay at home. 

I have really missed seeing you all and teaching you. Every time I do Joe Wicks in the morning I think of you all - 'If you're talking your not working hard enough,' I've not heard Joe Wicks say that yet to his class!!!

 I bet some of you have missed your learning too!

I have loved seeing some of your work on Twitter and Purple Mash and I will always reply to your work so it is a bit like me marking in class. Just like the other teachers, I am making sure you have things to do to keep you from getting too bored. There are tasks on Spelling Shed and Purple Mash, also school have paper copies of work to do if you need it. Some of the tasks I am setting are ICT and design so are fun to do! If you're doing other things like baking and making things, these are still fantastic things to do and you can share what you have been up to with myself and the other teachers on Twitter- check with your parents first.

If you are playing games online more, please make sure you are keeping safe and remembering all we learnt about online safety.

I have really missed reading to you all in class and listening to you read, try to keep up with your reading if you can as it so important; I have loved sitting in the sun with a book, and yes I do have a coffee and a biscuit too!!!

Take care everyone and keep safe 

Mrs Townson
