    Remember, to find your home learning from 1st June, Y5s need to go to the Y5 tab, and Y6s to the Y6 tab. This Owls page will no longer be updated. Click on the links below to find the new home learning pages for each year group. 

    21.05.20 Update: Y6 Letter from Miss Greenwood

    20.05.20 Update: Y5 Owls Letter from Miss Greenwood

    Owls, you have worked super hard over the last two months and I am very proud of you all. You have shown resilience, determination and enthusiasm, and have continually demonstrated the Thrupp Learning Powers.

     

    From Monday 1st June, remember that Y5s will all be working on Y5 only learning, which will be under a new tab on the main home learning page - if you need to contact a teacher with any photos, queries or questions, these will need to be sent to eagles@thrupp.gloucs.sch.uk 

     

    The Owls email address will be restricted (the only emails that will be replied to from this address are for the Y6 children who will not be coming back to school). Hence, please do not send emails to the Owls address, instead please ask any questions to either myself or Miss Barwell when you are in school. The Brilliant Book will revert back to nominations from staff in school for those who are in, and for Y6 children who are continuing their learning at home, please email nominations by 3.00pm on a Thursday through the Owls email address.

    Week Seven Home Learning (18.05.20)

    From now on, there will be a slight change to the logistics of White Rose Maths:

    • The White Rose worksheets that go with the videos will need to be downloaded from the Owls Home Learning Page (click on the notepaper subfolders below).
    • The videos will continue to be on the White Rose website.
    • If you would like the answer pack for the White Rose Maths so that you can mark your work before Friday, then please send me an email.

    Week Five Home Learning (04.05.20)

    Friday (8th May) is a bank holiday. I have included activities for 5 days, but you are more than welcome to complete 4 days of activities and have the Friday off. However, the work is there for anyone who wants to do it! 😊 I would like your compulsory English task (to write a detailed poem to thank NHS staff and Key Workers) emailed to me (as a photograph) via owls@thrupp.gloucs.sch.uk by 3pm on Thursday 7th May. 

     

    This year, the bank holiday is on a Friday to commemorate 75 years since VE Day. Perhaps you could find out about VE Day or hold a VE Day party in your home on that Friday? I have included some VE Day resources below this week's home learning if you would like to find out more or undertake some additional learning! 

    For the White Rose Maths this week, please complete Summer Term Week Commencing 4/05 (Y5: Multiply 2-digit numbers and Y6: Simplify Fractions).

    Week One Home Learning (23.03.20)

    Please do not spend too much time on any one activity. We have discussed how to undertake the activities, and given recommendations about time limits. As we have also discussed in class, if you get stuck with anything, stop and do not suffer in silence - see if you can use the school website or internet site to help, talk to an adult, or ask your guardian to send an email to owls@thrupp.gloucs.sch.uk and myself or Mrs Kelly will aim to respond within 24 hours (during normal school hours).

     

    Take care – we are proud of you!
