Teachers: Mr Sverha and Mrs Parry

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Bacon

Dear Year 5,

Happy New Year to you all!

Unfortunately, we won't be able to start our Spring term together again due to the Covid-19 restrictions. However, we will continue to learn remotely using Google Classroom. As we would like to separate our class work from the remote online learning, we have created a new classroom purely for this term called 'Year 5 - Remote Learning Spring 2021 '. To be able to access the classroom, you will need to log in to Google Classroom and accept the invitation. We will post new pieces of work every day by 8.00am. If possible, try to hand in your work by 4.00pm of the same day the work has been published.

We understand that there can be technical (or other) issues while using different devices so feel free to email us using our class email address: year5@pilgrim.medway.sch.uk (for parents only).

We hope we will be able to get back together soon. But until then keep strong and stay safe!

Yours Year 5 teachers
