This thing (COVID-19) that we are all part of, it is living history. It will be talked about for generations to come. Schools are closed, sports are cancelled, people are quarantined on a global level. So, we would like you to keep a journal/diary of this living history event (think Samuel Pepys, without the smelly cheese!) in your diary, record day to day events – photos, drawings, writing, newspaper clippings, activities. Interview people: parents, grandparents (over the phone!) email teachers. You will have created a primary source of your own history to share with generations to come.

Please continue to stay safe AT HOME and remember to wash your hands with warm water and soap!

Please see below a list of ‘live lessons’ that you may want to do with your children…

and if you haven't already, paint or draw a rainbow and display it in your window, to remind us all that there is a rainbow of hope after every storm.

POWer Project and homework

At the beginning of every half term a topic based project will be given out. This half term our topic is Transport. The power project for this half term will be sent out shortly. Children (and parents) need to ‘earn’ 10 POWer Points. You can choose any of the tasks to complete and do them in any order. When children have completed a task they should bring it to school. By all means go over the 10 points.

Weekly homework is sent out on a Friday and is due back in school every Tuesday.

 

  PE

 PE is every Tuesday and Friday 

Could you please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school.

A white t-shirt, black shorts and black pumps are the correct kit.

Appropriate footwear is needed and children may bring longer bottoms and a jacket in for colder weather.

 

 

 

Times Tables

The days of the time tables test is TBC. Your child must practise the times tables that are on their sheet. They do not have to practise under test conditions, however, there is a 5 minute time limit on test day, so they may find doing so good practise.

Spellings

Our spelling test is on a Friday.

Each half term children will also be given an additional set of spellings to learn. Two of these spellings will be added to the test on a  Thursday.
