Hello Year 5!  We hope that you are all well and are enjoying the activities that we are setting you.

Please ask your parents / carers to show you the Class Story on Class Dojo so that you can see pictures of what your classmates have been doing while in lockdown.  You will also find weekly videos added by your teachers that may help you with the tasks that you have been set.

In addition, remember to log in to TT Rock Stars ( https://ttrockstars.com/  )and Purple Mash (www.purplemash.com/exeter-nn18 ) as your teachers may be setting additional work for you on these platforms.   If you do not have your login for these, please email your class teacher or send a message via Class Dojo.
