Summer Holiday Resources
As we reach the end of the school year, we want to thank you all with your support during this time of home learning. Some parents have asked if we will be providing work for children to continue to do over the Summer. It is the Summer holidays so there is no expectation for your children to do school work and we do want the children to have a rest! We will not be setting weekly work or continuing home contact. However, if you would like some activities for them to access over the holidays, we have put together some useful resources and links from White Rose Maths and National Oak Academy on the School Website (these will also be available for children to access through DB Primary) which you can dip into if required.
• Click on the link for White Rose Maths:
The White Rose Maths work is arranged in sequence and is great revision for next year. Each activity has a corresponding set of answers. Children should go back over any mistakes and work out what to do to get the right answer. Due to the children not being in school for taught lessons in the summer term, there will be some areas that they haven’t looked at since Year 4 (Position and Direction, Properties of Shape, Volume). Do not worry - these will be revisited thoroughly in school next year.
These are also saved on DB Primary:
• Log onto DB Primary, click on the files section in the community page then ‘Summer Holiday Resources’”.
In addition, they have been saved on the school website:
• Click on the link to access the Year 5 ‘Summer Holiday Resources’ folder on the school website :
For a full daily timetable using National Oak Academy (obviously completely optional how much, if any, children do over the holidays), go to:
• Click on the link for National Oak Academy:
Simply select the week and day you are on to ensure a new set of lessons every day.
Alternatively, you can select lessons of interest by navigating through the Year 5 subjects.
Please note all of this is entirely optional, and we really do want our children to have a well-deserved rest over the holidays, but these resources are available for those who wish to continue with some home learning and revision over the Summer.
Have a lovely summer and we look forward to seeing you again in September.
