Week commencing 18th January

Hello Honey Bees,

I hope you are all well and thank you for sending me images of your work last week. It was lovely to see some of you last week virtually; I hope you will be able to join me for story time this week and make an online booking with me! This is a great way for you to show me all your amazing work and for me to give you some feedback about your work.

Here is a suggested timetable for the week to help you structure your time. This is what the Key Worker children in the Year 5 bubble will be doing, so what is happening in school is the same as what is being delivered to you at home. All videos for this week can be found on the Video Resource Centre: https://wyberton-primary-academy.primarysite.media/playlist/year-5

For some documents, you will see they mention an extra video to follow. In addition to the main video, I will film myself teaching the keyworker children so you can have some extra input if you would like. Please let me know if you would like anything else creating for you as a video.
