Year 5 Learning at Home

It is a fantastic idea to continue your journey of learning at home. This could take the form of simply talking with friends or family and discussing the things that you are learning about in School. It could however be more structured and you may want to develop certain skills or your understanding and knowledge in a certain subject area. 

Have fun and remember to make your learning fun!
