Well done to all of the children in school and at home for taking part in 2020's Sports Day. 

Virtual Assembly

Every Thursday at 10am

As this is the last week of term and the weather forecast is good, I have put a pack of work, below, for you to complete as well as some assessment sheets for maths. You can do it in any order and this will allow you to spend time in the sun. Make sure you wear a hat and sun cream. At the end of the week I will put some more reading onto Reading Planet for you to access over the holidays. Keep working hard and stay safe.

Here is the power point for English, the maths work is in each day's sub page. There is also a link for science activities below, you could try a few through the week, in the afternoons.

This is the work for week commencing 29 June 2020. The Theme this week is recycle, reuse, reduce again as I found so much for us to do.. All about the environment. There are power points for English, some art ideas and then related work in each days sub page. Maths is daily in the correct day. Have a good week and I look forward to seeing the work you have completed.

Here are the power points for this weeks work, both English and maths. The worksheets are in the correct day's sub pages and there are some extra sheets in the extra work sub page.

Here are the plans for the week as well as a pack of extra work, just in case you need a top up.

This weeks maths and English are on the two power points below 1st and 8th June. Some of the work is also in the correct sub page for each day.

Planning for week commencing 18.5.20

Here is the plan for the week commencing 11 May 2020.

The Red Cross has sent through a kindness calendar, you can try to do one small act of kindness a day, write it on the calendar, then you can remember all the lovely things you have done for others through the month.

Learning at home………


Here are some suggestions of activities that we feel would be beneficial for the pupils to undertake:


Read! Read! Read! Please ensure that children are both read to heard read frequently. This can be reading anything ie, magazines, comics, newsround, recipes. The more children read (or are read to) the more words they know and the easier they learn. Whilst children reading independently can be beneficial, it is really important that an adult listens to thm read to check errors – this even applies in years 5 and 6. Please take the time to discuss the story/book, explain unknown words and then try and use them later in the week.


Practise number bonds (numbers that you add together to make 10, 20, 100, 1000 and any numbers in between!) Cbeebies/Numberblocks episodes are great for this. If you search number bonds online, there will be lots of activities online for this.


Counting – Please take every opportunity to count. Not just in ones (twos, fives, tens – any number)! You can do this in fun ways e.g through movement, cooking, tidying away.


Times tables – Please ensure children in Year 2 – 6 are practising these frequently. Knowing times tables has a huge impact on what they can do in Maths. Children who know them are generally better mathematicians. There are a range of games online.


Playboard games and card games – talk to them about strategy and logic. Any games that promote discussion, counting or other skills.


Cooking or any food preparation, particularly measuring and weighing. This is also a good opportunity to promote new words.


Drawing and writing – Take the opportunity for children to draw and/or write notes for others. They could write a story or a book for a younger sibling or relation. They could help you with a shopping list and/or write their own recipe.  They could do some research on the internet and make a non-fiction book or presentation on something they are interested in.


Reinforce common sequences e.g days of the week, months of the year. Can they tell you which moth/day comes before/after? Do they know when their birthday is? Can you teach them this?


Practical skills – tying shoe laces, buttons, cutting, threading, using a knife and fork. All of these things will help with their handwriting skills.


If you have a garden, encourage them to be active. Can they help get the garden ready for spring? Can you plant anything?


Keep them active with challenges – e.g how many star jumps in a minute, how long can they balance on one foot for, can they plank? Go Noodle is a good source for videos for children to keep active. Cosmic Yoga videos are available on YouTube.


Anything that adds to their wider general knowledge: countries of the world, flags, capital cities, rivers, languages, historical events, knowledge of the local area.


Can they make a family tree? How was life different for ancestors?


If you are watching films – pause them and discuss them. Why are characters doing certain things? Would you do the same?
