Week 5

We are fast approaching half term and once again you have been working hard this week. The children have been continuing to learn all about Shackleton as well as writing newspaper reports and glacier poems. In Maths, the children have been getting to grips with decimals and new place value knowledge too. 


The highlight of the week had to be our first class Zoom and 20 children did manage to demonstrate the core value of resilience as technology  is never that straight forward. For those children who did not make it, we sincerely missed you and hope to see you in the next Zoom session after half term.


Please enjoy a selection of the children's work below as well as the Achievers' Certificates video.


Don't forget children, you can message on Seesaw and I will help you if you need support. Parents please email me any time on Thank you again for all of your hard work and support in these challenging times.

Week 4

I cannot believe we are at the end of week 4 of this half term already. The children have been working hard and a massive ‘shout out’ to parents too who have been supporting their child/ren whilst trying to do their day jobs.

In Maths, the children have been ‘treated’ to decimals and the beginnings of percentages as well as adding decimals. A key learning point here has been to add zeros as placeholders and make sure your place value columns are correctly lined up - the decimal point does not move.

In English, the children have been introduced to the explorer Earnest Shackleton and they have been reading all about his exploits. The class also had to research an explorer of their choice and present their findings. The children have also been developing their understanding of Scandinavia in more detail.

Week 3

This week the children have been really busy.

In maths the children have been looking at timesing and dividing decimals as well as adding and subtracting decimals. The children have done really well with this.

For Literacy this week, we have looked at a unit of work from the ‘Literacy Shed’ called The Alchemist’s Letter. This was a beautiful little animation and this generated lots of work for the children. Some children have been sharing their favourite memories, they have been developing their comprehension skills, as well as looking at new vocabulary and understanding its meaning.

Week 2

This week the home learning tasks for our Phase 3 pupils have included drawing a face or self-portrait. Here are some examples of the excellent work that our class have produced.

The children have continued to learn about Earth and Space and were set the challenge of designing a front cover sheet for this topic. They were also given the choice of drawing or making a model of either the solar system or a cross section of the Earth. We had some fantastic examples of these.

Week 1

We are delighted to see our class engaging with the home learning tasks that have been set on Seesaw. Here are some examples of the brilliant work that they have completed.
We were also pleased to see them taking time to relax and enjoy Friday's snow.
