Welcome to the Katerine Johnson class page
Back at school!
Hello and welcome to the Katherine Johnson class webpage.
Welcome back again, I hope everyone had a good half term break and is ready and raring to go this half term. Our new topic for this half term is Ancient Egypt. Please find more information about our learning every week on the weekly newsletters. P.E. lessons have moved to a Thursday this term, but children should ensure kit is in school everyday and is only taken home to clean as necessary (I will give the children some reminders on this). We have made a great start to Year 5 so far and I am looking forward to another great term.

Home learning for the week commencing 21st September
I hope everyone enjoyed the sunny weekend. This week at school we will be spending a good chunk of our learning time on some assessment work. There are packs of these already copied and available at the office for collection with some further information included. Due to copyright laws I cannot post these assessment papers online, sorry.
I will post a few other activities on here that can be done but ensuring that children get a good break between assessments and time to relax around this work is important for them. I will also post some activities on Class Dojo this week which many of you have joined and if not you should have an email inviting you to do so. Any issues or questions please contact the school office.

Online Learning Websites and Resources - Some Summer Holiday Activities and Ideas
For those who may wish to continue with some home learning or some education based activities during the summer holiday please find below a list of websites that contain a variety of different learning resources, videos, games, activities, worksheets etc. Most of these sites have free materials but some may require you to sign up or register for them which will require an email address also NOT all content on all websites is free. As ever, please make sure that there is appropriate adult supervision of any online use, especially when using sites for the first time, registering/signing up and downloading apps.
Please note you DO NOT have to do these. It is very important to let your brains take a rest over the holidays, enjoy time to play, especially play outside. We have all probably spent a bit more time than we would like to in front of tablets, computer screens and T.V.'s to help us with our learning over the last few months. Make the most of some time away from this over the summer to hopefully enjoy some nice weather, more relaxed time with family and friends so that you are re-energised and ready to go with some new learning at the end of August in Year 5!
