Friday 22nd May
A new message has been added to our Coronavirus page, which is accompanied by our policy detailing provision for children who are returning to school. You may have received this by email, but if you have not had an email please let me know your current email address at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will update our system.
Please check the policy and the message to ensure you are aware of our plans for after half term.
Online Learning: Monday 18th May
Hopefully you have all received an email from Richard over the weekend regarding the re-opening of schools etc. A copy of this is available on our Coronavirus page in case you didn’t receive it.
If you didn’t get this email, and would like to receive emails from us, please can you let us know an up to date email address so we can add it to our system?
I have uploaded the lesson pack for this coming week, on our Online Learning Page (follow the link above). The links to any outside resources are included in the pack, and each lesson should be linked to any resources at the end of the document.
We are continuing with our work on The Piano this week, and I have added a new video based on the suggestions the children made about treasured memories, which links to the first English session.
In our Maths work this week we are solving some challenges – sometimes these can be tricky, depending on how they are interpreted. In school we tend to encourage the children to read them twice, and maybe draw out the problem or make notes if it isn’t clear. I will happily explain any of the challenges during the online sessions on the Class Blog! This week I will be online between 10 – 12pm on Monday, Tuesday and Friday, although I will be checking in throughout the rest of the week as well.
We are finishing up our Titanic project this week, with a final piece of writing and a craft challenge! I’m hoping to put together the pictures of the children’s work into a project book to show off everything we have studied about the ship, so please feel free to send pictures over via the class email address: email@example.com
Thank you to everyone who has submitted recipes for the class book, and selfies for the next video. I am in the process of putting them together at the moment and will be sharing them with you soon!
Thank you, again, for all of your hard work, and for staying in contact so much. I love hearing and seeing what the children have been up to!
Take care, and stay safe!

Thank you for sending your recipes across – if there are any more out there can they be sent across asap – I’m keen to get going and make the recipe book!
This week I am collecting selfies to make another video – feel free to send some pictures across which show what you have been up to! I can’t wait to see you all!
I will be online this week between 10am & 12pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and through the day on Thursday and Friday.
Thank you so much for all of your hard work – I love hearing from you and seeing the work you are producing!
Stay safe, and take care,

Online Learning: Monday 4th May
The learning pack for this week has now been uploaded to our online learning page. Thank you to everyone who has sent photos and copies of work that has been completed – it is lovely to see what you are all getting up to.
We had some amazing photos of Icebergs sent in last week – well done to everyone who managed to make their own iceberg! As you can see from the photos below, they were all true to form with only a small part of the whole iceberg visible above the surface of the water.
We also have a new Kahoot quiz, based on questions set by the class. They have come up with some amazing questions! If you want a challenge, follow the link on the Online Learning Page to the Kahoot Quiz.
Finally, our video based on the organs of the Human body is on the Video Resource Centre for you all to enjoy. Thank you very much to everyone who contributed to the video - it's really informative!
Thank you all for everything that you are doing in supporting the children in their learning. I am missing the children terribly, so it is wonderful to see / hear what they have been up to.

Class Five Online Learning: Monday 20th April
Our pack for the coming week has now been uploaded to the Online Learning page, with links to relevant videos and websites, and the answers to last week’s maths challenges.
I will be online every day this week, and will be hosting ‘Live’ sessions on the class blog during the following times.
Monday 20th April: 10am – 12 noon
Tuesday 21st April: 12 noon – 2pm
Wednesday 22nd April: 2pm – 4pm
It would be lovely to see more of the children during the blog sessions – it’s a great place to be able to chat to each other and share ideas / achievements, and it also helps the children to ‘mix’ with their friends during these unusual times! As with previous weeks, I am also more than happy to receive work that the children have completed via email.
Thank you, for all of your help in delivering the activities in the packs!

Online Learning - Tuesday 14th April
Hello everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter, and that you are all managing to stay as safe as possible. I have uploaded the next learning pack to our Online Learning Page, with links to activities and videos included. As always, the pack contains links to activities and resources, and you can return to the overview page by clicking on the Bradworthy Academy logo on each page. The English and Maths tasks need to be worked through in order, as they build towards quizzes and challenges. As always, I will be more than happy to answer questions or respond to ideas on the class blog and email addresses.
I am hoping to be live on Wednesday between 11am and 1pm, on Thursday between 12pm - 2pm and Friday between 2pm and 4pm. I will be around at other times, and will be keeping an eye on the blog and the class email address throughout the week.
I will be posting out a new pack over the coming week, which has some resources for topic lessons and science challenges. The children don't need to look at these until they are directed to in the weekly plans - it just seemed sensible to send a few weeks at a time rather than work weekly.
Some very exciting news - we have been sent a personal message from Lindsay Littleson, the author of The Titanic Detective Agency. I wrote to her to ask for permission to use the story in our online learning, and she was kind enough to send you all a message! You can listen to it on the Video Resource Page, in the Class Five playlist. There are some other videos on this page which will be used in your learning this week - the pack explains it all!
Finally, thank you all for sending pictures and copies of your work in. I've put together a little video which shows what we have been up to so far! It's lovely to see so many smiling faces! You can find the video on the Video Resource Page as well - in the Class Five playlist.
Have an amazing week!

Class Five Update: Friday 20th March
A newsletter detailing the changes in school provision has been added to our Coronavirus information page. Please make sure you have seen this letter, as it contains important information about the coming weeks. Please click the link below to visit this page.
Packs have been sent home this evening with some basic resources, and log in details for online access to games and blogs etc. If your child has been away from school these have been put into the post. We will add some home learning to this page on Monday, and the resources will be included in these plans - there is no expectation for the children to be completing anything this weekend!
On Monday I will also provide details of 'live' sessions throughout next week, where I will be available online to answer queries and comments via our blog.
Over the coming weeks, should you need to contact me directly, please email me via firstname.lastname@example.org
We will be utilising communication with parents and children within emails and blog access, and will therefore be unable to answer any queries on other platforms.
Thank you for all of your incredible support this week, the strength of the community in school is wonderful to see!

Class Five Update: March 2020
Class Five have had a lot of fun getting stuck into our work on the digestive system in recent weeks, and as you can see from the pictures below we got our hands dirty and jumped right in to an experiment which models the functions of the digestive system. We will be extending this work in the coming weeks, so please check back for some more pictures soon!
Class Five Update: Spring Term 2020
We have had a very busy half term, getting stuck in to our new topic based on the RMS Titanic, and enjoying a project around the poem 'Sea Tongue' by Kevin Crossley-Holland. We have also been getting stuck into activities based on Chinese New Year, and learning how to play the Pocket Trumpets, along with many other adventures!
