This blog post will act as a learning forum for pupils and parents providing a single point of contact for questions or queries about the work children have been set through the school website.

This is an important year and I would encourage pupils to try and ensure that (unless unwell) they practice a range of skills daily while at home:

Reading

  • Read Bookflix books and reading books (ideally 30 minutes a day)
  • World Book Online have a fabulous collection of over 3,000 eBooks and audio books available for free for children to access at home. Click here to access the link.

English

  • Time capsule activities: 1. Write a letter to themselves. Talk about their favourite TV show, song, books etc. 2. Write about their future self: talk about what they would like to be when they grow up, why and five things they want to do when they are an adult. 3. Draw a picture of their family. 4. If it is safe to, get a newspaper and let them cut out articles that they think would be important for their future self. Put them altogether in a box or scrap book and stick it up in the attic or somewhere you don’t usually go.
  • Explore story writing and sentence challenges with Pobble click here
  • Spelling shed– practice spellings to help with the year 5/6 word list.

    Maths

    Science

    • Learn more about the amazing world of science by enjoying fun science experiments, cool facts, online games and lots of free activities. Click here 

    Other topics

    • History – create a family timeline making sure events are in chronological order. Draw a picture for each key event and don’t forget to include the dates.
    • PE. Keep active, fit and healthy with a range of activities for 30 minutes a day. Joe Wicks is doing a free interactive workout every Monday- Friday morning from 9am on his youtube channel. Or why not try some Cosmic Yoga. 

    I look forward to reading parent and pupil comments about what you have been up to…

    Parents can also view relevant whole school updates on the school website homepage.

    I will keep a regular eye on comments made within this post and respond where appropriate.

    For any further advice or support please contact awilders@heapbridge.rochdale.sch.uk. Emails will be responded to within school hours.

    Thank you.

    Miss Wilders

    When I found out school was closing I cried. This is going to be a long 12 weeks and I hate being at home.

    It’s not like I don’t like being at home it’s the thought of not seeing my friends for that amount of time. We don’t even get proper lessons at home and I love school.

    Can we write fact pages that we have googled and can we write stories and letters in our home learning books?

      Hi Cleo, try and make the most out of being at home, it won’t be forever and we will be back together soon. You can do lots of research, maybe look at the Egyptians, we will hopefully be looking at this in summer term. Have fun and remember my email is on the blog so feel free to email me. Miss Wilders

    Good Morning Year 51

    Year 5 try not to be scared,
    from all the stories you may have heard.
    I’m just writing because I want to say,
    I’m thinking of you all each day.
    I know you’re all looked after in your homes,
    just remember that you are not alone.
    Please use this time carefully,
    have fun and learn creatively.
    Don’t read now because you have to for a test,
    instead let books take you on a quest,
    Use this time for a new skill,
    let new learning be a thrill.
    Don’t idle the hours with wasteful things,
    enjoy the fun new learning brings.
    And hopefully it won’t be long,
    until we are back at Heap Bridge where we belong!

    Stay safe!

    Miss Wilders

    P.s. Remember my email is on the original blog post for both parents and children, please use it to keep me up to date with what you are doing at home and if you have any questions.
