Thank you to those who were able to join us online on Wednesday 10th February for our update zoom on the two PGL trips: one for the current year 5s and the other for the current year 6s. Below you will find the two PowerPoints shared during the zoom call which contain useful information and links.

PGL Parents’ Meeting – 2021 – Year 5

PGL Parents’ Meeting – 2021 – Year 6

 

As is the case when the children are in school, we would expect that they regularly use the online resources we have available:

Spelling Shed and Maths Shed

– Times Table Rock Stars

SATs Boot Camp

The children should know their logins for these websites as they have been used regularly for homework. Try to make these part of your child’s daily schedule.

Class emails for Year 5 and 6 are:

In addition, you will have received a ParentMail regarding Accelerated Reader. We would love the children to continue reading books at home and then take the associated quiz on Accelerated Reader from home. Quizzes can be taken here. Please don’t worry at this point about the book level.
