Welcome to the Katerine Johnson class page
Back at school!
Hello and welcome to the Katherine Johnson class webpage.
We are back! It has been great to see so many familiar faces back at school this term, and in person rather than just via computer screens!
Our new class name is Katherine Johnson, we are starting our English work this term by find out about her and writing Biographies. In Math's we are starting by recapping and developing our knowledge of place value. And our topic theme is going to be stargazers!
Please see the presentation below for a bit more information about what will be happening in Year 5. Please watch the presentation as a slide show as I have recorded my voice over slides to explain them a bit more and I know you wouldn't want to miss out on that!

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!
