Can you beat your score from last week?
White Rose Maths is a great website! They have set up a home learning section with videos and activities linked to the objectives for each year group. The objectives don’t always match the tasks that I have set on Mathletics but may be an excellent revision activity or some new learning that we haven’t yet covered in school. Visit the website link below and click on the appropriate year group on the right.
I can see that lots of you have been using Reading Eggs during this first week at home which is great!
Our Remarkable Readers this week are Jude, who achieved a Gold certificate, Alfie (3.4 hours) and Gracie (3.3 hours). Well done!
Well done to all of you who have been completing your Mathletics tasks. Here are the certificate winners for the past week:
Elodie, Lottie and Georgiana – bronze!
Kaeshiyann – silver and bronze!
It has been brilliant to see all the fantastic home learning that has been completed this week. Here are a few photos – please keep sending them in as I would love to see what you have all been up to. Well done everyone!

During the school closure, we would like you to complete some home learning. Depending on individual family circumstances, your capacity to do this may vary e.g. parent work commitments etc. Our advice would be to try to aim for about 2 hours of home learning each day. This ideally would be broken up into smaller chunks of time e.g. half an hour at a time. We do not want to put pressure on families during this already stressful and uncertain times so please do what you can. Teachers will be updating their class pages weekly so please check this regularly. Thank you for your continued support.
This term in Woodland Class we are learning all about Inventors. Da Vinci is thought of as one of the greatest inventors of all time, as well as an amazing artist. Most of his inventions were not actually made or tested by him. We had a go at creating a parachute based on Da Vinci’s design. We then tested it out and made design adjustments.
We compared the Wright Brother’s gliders with Da Vinci’s gliders then made different paper plane designs and tested them.
We have enjoyed our Gymnastic lessons, learning about balancing and jumping.
In Woodland Class we have been enjoying the book Beegu. In the book, Beegu was lonely and wanted to find some friends so we created Aliens that could be friends with him. We then created models of our aliens using clay.
Using a colour wash we have created sunset pictures in the same style as the illustrations in Beegu.
The children enjoy learning their spellings in different ways.
