We hope that you had a lovely weekend with your family and are feeling refreshed and ready for another week of home learning! Remember to continue emailing your teachers with your learning at email@example.com. We love hearing from you!
Please start by registering yourself:
Lesson 1 - Maths
Today we will be multiplying 2-digit numbers by 2-digit numbers.

Lesson 2 - Literacy

Now, spend 30 minutes on Active Learn. Choose a book that your teacher has set for you and read it carefully. Each time you see a little green bug, click on it and answer the questions. You will earn points that you can redeem in your account.

Lesson 4 - Appreciation Circle
Let's begin this final session by listening to the story, 'Have You Filled a Bucket Today?' by Carol McCloud. Most of Year 5 are already familiar with this story, but sometimes when we listen to a story for a second time, we notice new things, so listen carefully.
One way that you can fill a bucket, is by telling someone something you appreciate about them.
We would like you to now spend time sitting down with your family and taking turns to compliment one another. Try to make your appreciations specific to that person and the relationship that you have with them. If you are stuck for ideas, have a look at the examples below.
Make sure that you leave your study space tidy and try to spend your evening away from screens. We will see you back here tomorrow morning for more activities!
Best wishes to you and your family,
Sophie, Alice, Charlotte, Lauren and Nasima
