We have put together some links to online resources that can support children learning at home.
We would ask that Parents consider how to keep children safe when they are online. NSPCC has some fantastic guidance available here: . We would recommend setting parental controls on any devices and keep an eye on your child's history.
Reading for pleasure
We have produced some suggested reading lists for each year group which might be helpful to provide high quality texts at home for your child.

A very warm welcome to Year 5 from Mr Langford, Mrs Burdass, Miss Broderick, Mr Wilson, Mrs Turner and Miss Locke! This year, our teaching assistants are Miss Wint, Mr Priestley, Miss Dawson and Miss Pearson.
Children in year 5 will be taught English and Maths in their year groups.
The three year 5 teachers are Mrs Turner, Mr Langford and Mr Wilson.
Children are now entering upper KS2 and as well as getting ready for new challenges, they will now become role models to our younger children. Throughout Year 5, the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: The Vikings, The Mayans, Our Continent and Healthy Me. Our first topic will be The Vikings, where our year group story will be How To Train Your Dragon.
All of the topics in Year Five have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give your child the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be shared on our website and on Class Dojo.
Throughout the year we will cover weekly SEAL lessons, which will focus on our 5 Rs. This half term our 5R focus is Resilience and our SEAL topics is 'Going for goals'.
Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week (including a change of outdoor trainers). Our P.E days are:
Class 3: Wednesday and Thursday
Class 4: Monday and Thursday
Class 5: Monday and Thursday
Class 6: Tuesday and Friday
Class 7: Tuesday and Thursday
If you ever have any problems or concerns, please see a member of the Year Five team at the beginning or end of the school day; or by phoning the school office. Here at Broomhill, we have an open door policy and welcome parents into school.
We shall all look forward to a brilliant year with Year Five!
