Week 1 closure activities

Year 5 week 1 closure activities

Hello everyone!


It’s been an unusual week, hasn’t it? We hope you, and your families, have been able to enjoy some of this lovely sunshine. 


As you probably know, your teachers are doing a bit of everything at the moment: some of us are in school looking after the children of key workers and others are working from home, filling up the HJS Workspace page with exciting activities to keep you learning. We’re also looking after our own families, finding  ways to keep everyone healthy, happy and connected. 


One great way for us all to stay connected is for as many children in Year 5 to try the daily 9am Joe Wicks 30 minute PE workout. It’s Live on YouTube: but ask a parent for permission to access it first please. We think you’ll enjoy knowing that every time you attempt a ‘running man’ or ‘burpee’, your teachers are doing exactly the same! 


By now, you should be thinking of doing some activities from the Y5 Workspace in the exercise book we sent home. There are suggested activities for all areas of the curriculum, so you can easily fit them into your daily routine.
