Year 5/6 - Abbey

Please be assured that our daily updates are simply a suggestion and we do not want you to worry about whether everything is completed every day. We want the resources and ideas to be helpful and not a hindrance. The work can be completed at any time. Additionally, if your child finds any of the learning from home tasks too challenging, please feel free to take a look at another class page. At this unusual time, our main priority is that our children and families are happy and healthy.

Learning From Home

Our aim, during this difficult time is to keep children at MPL thinking hard, gaining knowledge and honing their skills. It is important to help them maintain a routine and retain positive mental and physical health. We must strive to provide a consistent, positive point of contact in what will be a very unsettling time for many children. Please check this page daily for new learning from home activities.

Please take a look at our wellbeing pages for useful links and information:

Happy Friday everyone! Well done on making it to half term - I am so proud of how well you've all done with your learning from home for the past seven weeks. You've put in lots of effort, persevered when it's been tricky or you've struggle to stay motivated, been creative and enthusiastic about the way you've approached learning and have shown just how resilient you are in taking on this new way of learning remotely. I think you (and your parents) have definitely earned a break! I hope you manage to make the most of the coming week off and enjoy the sunshine as much as possible.

Hello Abbey, well done on making it to the end of your sixth week of learning from home! I know it isn't always easy and it can be really challenging to motivate yourself, but whatever you are managing to do (whether it be all of the tasks or just one or two) is helping to keep your brain working and that is what is important.
