Our Independent Learning During School Closure - CLICK HERE

On Monday 27th April (week 2 after Easter) all class learning will be moving from this site to Class Dojo. You will receive an invitation email during the week beginning 20th April (week 1 after Easter). This new system will be more child friendly and allow teachers to be able to upload videos and work more effectively. Teachers will continue to respond to messages through this new site on Wednesdays and Fridays 1-3pm. New work for the week will be available by 10am every Monday.

Thank you for all you are doing to support the pupils.

The new work for the day will be set by 9am every morning. Where possible, children should complete the work in their new exercise books and it should be jointly marked by parents and children together. Please remember, always focus on the positives!  We appreciate your support with this.

We are aware that children can manage different amounts of work so we are using the MUST, SHOULD COULD suggestions as a guide for some of the English tasks. We hope that all children will complete the section identified as MUST and after that, we will be led by you as parents as to how much of the other activities your children will complete. 

Please don't worry if your child misses some tasks. We know what a difficult time this is for everyone.

A useful tip is to write the letters out in various different formations; this helps you see different letter strings and is almost guaranteed to help you find more words.  Try writing them in a circle, then re-arrange them a few times.   For a clue to the 9-letter word, click on the link to the PDF below.

Hi everyone, there are some mistakes in the year 5 day 2 maths activity: at the end of the practice sheet (hot) the answers to the challenge questions should be: a) 2.45 and b) 3.49. Also At the end of the "Check your understanding" questions there is a section starting "Sam wrote... the answers should say that 2.49 is closer to and therefore rounds to 2 not 3.

Sorry about this and thank you to Freya and Grace for spotting the mistakes!

Read this exciting extract (perhaps a couple of times through) then use you imagination to answer the 'unanswered questions'.  There is no right or wrong!  

You can either print the storyboard or draw it out in your exercise book or on separate paper.


French - Learn some of the differerent French speaking countries around the world.

If you can't open the Word doc, here is a PDF of the same map.

Lesson objective: To learn some francophone countries and revise colours.

There are over 50 'francophone' countries (countries where French is spoken) in the world! 

1) Use an atlas or the internet to find the francophone countries named on the attached map.  If you can print the map you can shade them in. (Luxembourg and Monaco are both really small so might be hard to colour!)  

2) Look up the flags and colour them the correct colours. Either draw them in your exercise book and label or colour them on the printed sheet.

Extension: label with the correct colours in French:

Bleu, rouge, blanc, vert, jaune, noir, orange...
