Friday 15th January 2021

Well done everybody on making it through to Friday. I am so proud of all of your efforts with your home learning this week. We are all adapting to a different way of working (us staff included) and I am amazed at your determination and resilience. You have kept me smiling all week. I'll be announcing a Star of the Week later on today, and certificates will be found under the Star of the Week tab on the main class page.

Your learning for today is on Purple Mash, and here is a quick overview:


Reading: You have been set the next chapter in the book you are reading as well as some activities based on this.


Spelling and Grammar: Tasks have been uploaded on to Purple Mash for you to access.


Maths: We are continuing our work on fractions, decimals and percentages and a video lesson has been uploaded for you to watch and join in with, as well as some reasoning and problem solving activities. You have also been set a Maths game to have a go at, and you can also access TT Rockstars- you might find a battle to compete in next week, so do go and check it out!


Writing: Our writing lesson today focuses on the character you have been creating this week. You will be writing a new chapter of The Wizard of Oz, in which Dorothy meets your character. Please watch the video lesson before you complete this task.


Topic:  I have set a lovely Mindfulness activity on Purple Mash today asking you to look at some various pictures and describe your feelings towards them. A lovely and calm way to end what has been a very busy week. 


As it is Friday, and you have worked so hard this week, I'd also like you to spend some time doing something which you love. This could be a physical activity, such as a game in the garden, or perhaps curling up with your favourite book. You might even prefer to complete an Art activity or play a board game! As always, please send me a message using 2email if you need any help or have a problem. 

Keep smiling, and stay safe! I'm missing you lots..

Hello everybody, and well done to all those children who completed work yesterday. You are all superstars.

I'd love to see even more of you completing tasks today. 

Please use the timetable above, and make sure you have breaks in between lessons- some of you were very eager yesterday and completed lots of tasks in the morning. Breaks help our brains to re-focus and it makes us all better learners!


All your work for today has been set on Purple Mash, but please send me a message if you are struggling. You can either message on Purple Mash or using the box on our main class page and I will reply as fast as I am able to. 

Keep up the hard work everybody, and stay safe!
