Lockdown January 2021


Hello Class 5,


It feels very strange not to be seeing all of your faces in person every day and I miss being in our classroom teaching you. I hope you and your families are all well and keeping safe. Although we cannot be together at school, we still have the opportunity to learn together online. You have all adapted so well to our live online lessons and I am extremely proud in the maturity you have all shown to take ownership of your learning. Please remember to turn up to the sessions 5 minutes early so that you can catch up with your friends.


Every day we have 3 sessions:


8.45 – 9.05am – Maths

10.05 – 10.25am – English

12.15 – 12.35pm - Topic


On Wednesdays, we have French lessons with Madame Elliot 2.00 – 2.30pm and weekly Worships every Monday at 3pm.


On the morning of each lesson, I post the resources and activities you will need for the day on our Google Classroom page. You have a home learning pack which consists of a Grammar, Punctuation and Spelling booklet, a comprehension booklet, a yellow exercise book, Whiterose booklet and other resources.


Once you have completed your work, please try to send me a photo or scanned image so that I can see how you are getting on. Alternatively, you can post your work on our Google Classroom stream. I will try my best to comment and give feedback on as many pieces of work you send back to me.


Please try to complete all of the activities below once a day:


  • Reading for 15 minutes
  • Practising Times-tables using TTRS
  • Practising spellings using Spelling Shed
  • Physical activity at least 30 minutes a day (Joe Wicks/a walk)


Keep up everything you are doing Class 5! It is a pleasure to be your teacher and work with dedicated pupils like yourselves. We know you and your parents are trying your best in a difficult situation so just do the best you can do!


I hope to see you soon,


Love Mr Davies


Welcome to Class 5. We are a class made up of year 6 children and we are always kind and caring towards others.

We always try our very best and we are not afraid to get things wrong: we know that we learn from our mistakes and that’s what helps us to succeed.

We are confident in our own abilities and our ability to speak in front of any audience – big or small – this is what sets us apart from other children.

We love learning and our behaviour is exemplary therefore we act as role models for younger members of our school family.

We are responsible for lots of jobs around our school and we thrive on this, because we want The Richard Crosse Primary School to be the best it can be!

Every day offers us new and exciting opportunities that take us one step further towards a bright and joyful future.
