Spring Term 2021
Welcome back! It was so lovely to see you all today!
Please find below a timetable for this week's learning. To begin with we will meet on Zoom twice a day (highlighted in pink) to register, discuss our tasks, address any worries and to share our class book. Please complete the tasks in your school exercise books just as you would as if you were at school. Please date your work but do not worry about LOs for now.
Please, can I also ask you to take a photo of your work and to upload it onto your Dojo Portfolio? Many thanks!
If you have any questions please send me a message on Dojo and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.
Well done for continuing to be amazing!
If you are self-isolating at home please click on the star above for your year group and then select the resources for the week that you are at home. If you are able to print out the maths work, then please remember to bring it into school on your return and we can glue it into your school exercise book. You will also need to go to Classroom Google to complete your English assignments. Any problems, then please Dojo but be aware that I am probably teaching so might not always be able to get back to you straight away!

Welcome to the final week of what has been the strangest of academic years! A really well done to each and every one of you for doing such an amazing job, whether you stayed at home or came into school, you have all played your part in keeping each other safe and I am extremely proud of you. I am looking forward to seeing you all at our Zoom Beach Party on Thursday but in the meantime, have a great week and keep smiling!
Below are the Maths worksheets and some science activities to keep you busy, and please continue with the Island Topic if you still have more to do.
In case I don't see you on Thursday - have a lovely summer!
Week beginning 6th July
Well done everybody for completing another week! You are nearly there - only two weeks to go and you can start the Summer Holidays! Look out for an invitation to our end of year get together, it would be lovely to see you all before the holidays.
Have a great week and see you on Zoom on Tuesday!
Week beginning 29th June
Welcome to Week 5! It has been so fantastic seeing so many of you joining us for our Zoom meetings and it has really cheered up all of us who are in school - I hope you are enjoying them too? We will also continue to try to be on Mathletics at around 10am everyday so you can join us in a tournament if you wish. Please continue with your Island Topic. I have added some resources below which you might find useful this week.
You have all been at home for a very long time now and I know that you are missing your friends but please remember that I am extremely proud of you all and think you are doing an amazing job!
Week beginning 22nd June
Hello and welcome to week 4 of this half-term!
It was lovely to see so many of you in our class assembly this week and I am looking forward to our next one on Tuesday. Please Dojo me if you have not received an invitation. Please continue to use the Island planning which you can find lower down the page under 8th June. I have also added some more reading comprehension for you to do as well as some science ideas. Enjoy and see you all very soon!
Week beginning 15th June
Hello and welcome to another week! I hope that you are all enjoying the Island Topic? The children in school have been busy drawing maps, writing fact-files and designing and writing about their own creature that lives on their islands. We would love to share some of our work as well as see yours, so I am hoping that we will be able to all get together on Zoom next week. Watch out for an email inviting you.
See you all soon!
Please take a look at the attached resource on building shelters that might help you with your Island topic when you come to writing your instructions.
Friday 19th June Maths
Please log on to the BBC Daily Lessons and complete the activities for your year group.
Monday 8th June
I have simplified the English home learning to make it easier for different year groups to be able to work on similar tasks and to fit in with Willow and Maple Class. As some of you have siblings in those classes, you might even want to share ideas or work together on certain areas of learning. Some of you might have already started this topic and that's fine, just choose another task from the ideas in the booklet and be as creative as you can be. There is not just one way to do this and you might decide to research and explore different ideas to the ones that I have given you. This week in school the children have designed some amazing imaginary animals with some very interesting features and diets! There are a range of tasks to work through between now and the end of term. Work at your own pace and don't worry if you don't complete the whole thing but have fun and be creative! I would love to see what you get up to!
Monday June 1st
Welcome back everybody! I hope that you enjoyed your break and were able to have lots of fun in the sun?
Please find below Maths and English, as well as a couple of Science activities for you to try should you chose to.
Don't forget, that if you have any questions or would like to share anything that you have been up to, then please send me a Dojo - I love hearing from you!
Monday 18th May 2020 - Mental Health Awareness Week
Welcome to another week of learning and to Mental Health Awareness Week.
I hope that you are all okay? Don't forget to take a look at the new resources to support good mental health at this uncertain time. There is a tab on the Self Isolation page here on the website. Please remember that I am always available during the week days if there is anything that you are unsure about, if something is worrying you or you just want to chat! Simply send me a message via Class Dojo and I will respond as quickly as I can.
Also, don't forget to look at the other tabs on the Class Isolation page as there are lots of other activities that might interest you that are on a more practical level. I have also added some more tasks on Purple Mash which you may choose to do should you wish.
Have a great week and thank you for all the photos that you have sent me from your VE Day celebrations!
Year 4 Fractions alternative worksheets - only for those who would like them!
Please do not feel that you have to do these, but if you are missing the usual White Rose worksheets these might help.

Let me know if you have any problems and look out for National Numeracy Day on Wednesday!
In English both Year 4 and Year 5 have the same activities based on the traditional tale of The King of the Fishes.
I have had a request to put all the English for the week onto the website to help with printing. I understand that many of you find printing the work easier, but please do not feel you have to. Do whatever works for you and your family. I have included Day 5 but remember Friday is a Bank Holiday, so I will leave it up you what you choose to do that day! I have also included some VE Day activities to keep you busy
Have a fun week and I look forward to hearing what you get up to.
From this week you will be need to access the worksheets from our pages (see below) as they will no longer be available for free on the White Rose website. You will still be able to watch the videos via their website and there will also be extra help via the BBC Home Learning website. Enjoy!
