Year 5

Welcome to Year 5's Class Pages

In Year 5 we have three classes. Miss Williams 5W, Miss Teague 5T and Mr Snowdon 5S class. 

Hello Year 5!

Time table during lockdown:

This is our suggested time table whilst we are in national lockdown and schools are closed to all except Key Workers and vulnerable children. 

Whilst we have provided the level of remote learning as per the Department For Education guidance we understand that there is a great pressure on parents. Therefore it may not be possible to complete all of these assignment each day / each week. We understand that parents are doing the best they can in very difficult circumstances.

Technical Issues we have identified:

We have identified the following technical issues across our platforms and working to either resolve them or have contacted the supplier so that they can resolve them.

 

  Microsoft Teams Frog Play Spelling Shed / Maths Shed
Monday

Art

The art lesson was uploaded in Powerpoint - several parents contacted us to say that the powerpoint wasn't opening within the viewer. We are looking at ways we can host this that enables everyone to access it.  

   
Tuesday

General 

At around 11am Teams temporarily stopped working. We don't know why this was and it isn't something we have any control over. It seemed to start working again reasonably quickly but would cause issues for anyone attempting to access assignments at the time. It also would mean that any services we use that are associated with Microsoft Teams (For example Streams the video service we use for lessons that the school have recorded) would also temporarily stop working. 

If you notice an issue please do let us know by emailing technicalissues@gilmourjuniors.com 

History quiz: 

One of the features of Frog Play is the "randomise questions" - this means that whilst each child accesses the same 12 questions they don't access them in the same order. Generally this is a feature we switch off, however for the History we noticed that it had been switched on. That meant that some children would be asked questions that they would would be unable to answer during the early part of the video lesson. This has now been corrected.
