Ms Drummey’s 5th Class Maths 

Dear Parents/Guardians, 

Once again, I hope everyone is keeping safe and well. I hope the boys are feeling safe and happy and are coping well in these unprecedented times. We’re all missing being in school. Please find enclosed work for the period 05/05/20-15/05/20.  You can choose to complete a few topics/activities a day. Please do not feel under pressure to complete all activities as I know households can be extremely busy. I do not want either yourselves or the boys to be feeling overwhelmed and stressed so please complete what suits you. Your wellbeing and that of the boys is the most important thing at this time. We will make every effort to catch up on the work that has been missed when we return to school. If you have any queries regarding this work please do not hesitate to contact me by email. Also, if the boys would like to email me a picture of any of the work that they have completed I would only be delighted to give them some feedback. 

Kind Regards, 

Ms Drummey
