Welcome to Dove Bank

Year 5

Year 5


Hello everyone, 

We understand that the current situation is a unique one and would like to thank you for your efforts in ensuring that your child’s learning has continued whilst at home. Keep it up! 🙂

Me (Miss Lawton), Miss Robinson and Mrs Laws are all missing you, our lovely children, and cannot wait for school to re-open properly. We appreciate you staying in touch, so thank you.


From Monday 20th April, we have decided to use a more simple, consistent format across the school for home learning which we will post on here as well as email it out to you weekly.

It organises activities into different subjects and tells you how many of each the children should be completing each day.

As our aim is to avoid too much printing at home, we have now included lots more links to online activities and some activities are there to encourage the children to use their exercise books, that we sent home when school closed, to record work in.

Please can children complete any maths work in their blue squared book and any other (literacy or topic) work in their red lined book.

Also, I ask please, that the children record the date and title (learning objective) for their work so that it is easy to navigate and mark, once it is submitted when we return to school.

We also know that we need to stay active, fit and healthy as well so make sure you’re getting exercise everyday (90 mins recommended).
