Year 4 Home Learning- 3.4.20

So, we have reached the end of another week!

Honestly, honestly, honestly, we are both SO PROUD of you. The way you have completed tasks to such a high standard, communicated your questions and thoughts, encouraged and responded on each other's posts; you are a true credit to your families.

So all that remains for today-

-BIG WRITE-thank you letter.

-Weekly spelling test

- Big Maths online challenges.

-Some reading if you can- to yourself or read to someone at home.

Over the next two weeks-

-Try and complete tasks that are outstanding from this first two weeks of 'Remote Home Learning,' e.g Databases of countries , Welsh pet survey, Science food chains, etc. 

*We have included another Assignment on Google classroom, called 'Easter Activities'. They are just some simple, fun ideas and activities that you may like to do over the next two weeks. No pressure at all to do them, but if you do, feel free to send us some photos or messages. * 

Have a great Easter Holidays, I know it probably won't feel like your normal holidays, but try and enjoy and relax and keep yourself safe.

We really miss your smiley faces and chatty voices and look forward to keeping in touch when possible via our Google Classroom Stream.   


Take care,

Mrs Maunder and Mrs Phillips

Year 6 Friday 3rd April 2020

Good morning Yr6,

I can't quite believe that we're at the end of our second week of home learning. You have all been amazing and thank you for all the learning you're doing and sharing with me. You have adapted to using online learning amazingly and I am very proud of you. Well done and thank you.

Today is the last day of term and I won't be posting any further blogs until Monday 20th April when the summer term begins. As always your learning will be available from 9 am on Goggle Classroom.
Literacy- to write a TV advert for your Easter product.
Math - complete your Big Maths Challenges
Topic - to understand the Easter story

During the Easter break try and take some time to relax and recharge. Enjoy your garden and your daily exercise with your family. It would be really useful to keep up with daily activities such as spellings, times tables and reading. Maybe find time to do some drawing or painting using nature as an inspiration. It wouldn't take long each day. You could do this online or in your book. You are welcome to share with me using my HWB email address. You can also complete any other activities from Google Classroom if you wish. I will try and add some fun, interesting ideas for you to do to Google Classroom over the holidays.

Take care, look after yourself and stay safe.

Mrs Cotton.

Our final day of online learning before Easter- and what a 2 weeks it has been! You've all coped so well and risen to the challenge brilliantly so well done. I won't be setting any work for you over the Easter holidays so you can all relax and recharge, but I will post some fun Easter activities on Google Classroom for you to have a go at if you want to. Most importantly, spend time with your family, do the things that you enjoy and have fun!

For today, tasks will be available on Google Classroom from 9am

Maths - online Big Maths challenges
Literacy - write a spring poem
Other- work on any other tasks you haven't completed, e.g. your digital book, Zendoodle animals/ nature art, research/ Powerpoint on a country of your choice

I would also like you to spend at least 10 minutes per day on j2blast to really become confident with your times tables - this can be practising, live challenges, or a mixture of both. It's great to see that lots of you have been on since last week, and I'll be interested to keep an eye on who's taking top spot on the leaderboard!

Please also continue with daily reading - at least 10 to 15 minutes a day ideally. This could be a book, a magazine, a newspaper or even a website such as Newsround.

Enjoy your break, stay safe, and look out for new home learning from 20th April!

Reception Home Learning 3.4.20

Reception Class Friday 3rd April

To the Parents and children of Reception Class.

This will be the last blog until after the Easter holidays. I hope you are all well and getting the balance right, that is really important for you all. Just remember you aren't failing at anything- you are surviving everything.

I will just do some fun activities for Easter.


Perhaps you could help your child to make an Easter card. An idea I was going to do was to paint an egg shape brown and then cut in half. If you have a split pin, you could push the pin at the edge of the left hand side. So it opens and shuts. If you don't have a slit pin, don't worry you can just glue it on to a piece if colourful card or whatever you have. Paint a yellow circle in the middle of the card or colour it in. Make some eyes and an orange beak. Then either push the split pin through the card so the egg opens and closes or glue the cut egg so the chick is popping out of the egg. Then you are ready to create your own message. Good Luck!


Perhaps when you do an Easter egg hunt, you could number each egg and then maybe write some numbers in chalk on the patio or just create some numbers, and your child has to match the egg to the numbers. You could even ask them to tell you 1 more, less etc. Or just have fun and forget about numbers just for today!

If you make some Easter nests which I'm sure you will, think about some of the bossy verbs your child can use- weigh, break, mix, sprinkle, melt cool, eat etc. Perhaps they could draw some pictures in their books to sequence the instructions. Perhaps put key words underneath and don't forget, voila!


Wax resistant eggs

What you need


·         Eggs

·         Wax crayons

·         Food colouring

·         Small pots

·         Pan water

·         Water

What to do

·         Hard boil your eggs. Once cooled draw patterns on their shell with wax crayons.

·         Mix a few drops of food colouring with water- enough to cover the eggs.

·         Put the egg in food colouring and water for about 20mins

·         Take out and allow to dry.

·         Admire your egg and then eat it!


I'm sure you can manage some Mindfulness.

Mindfulness. First thing in the morning if you can. The whole family, you all need this!


Jungle Movement

·         Stand mindfully with your arms relaxed by your sides. Take three soft, slow, mindful breaths. Keep your eyes open.

·         Tighten and relax the muscles in your toes, ankles and legs. Lift one foot and feel your muscles working.

·         Imagine you are an animal in a jungle. Begin walking silently through the jungle. Try not to make a sound.

·         Feel your toes helping you balance. Feel your weight in your heels. Move your arms in a slow sway.

·         If you start daydreaming, pay attention to your feet again. Move slowly across the room. Notice how your hips swivel and your weight shifts when you turn.

·         Cross the room three times, paying attention to how you move.

Just a little poem. I don't know who wrote this, but it's beautiful……

We fell asleep in one world, and woke up in another.

Suddenly Disney is out of magic.

Paris is no longer romantic.

New York doesn't stand up anymore.

The Chinese wall is no longer a fortress, and Mecca is empty.


Hugs and kisses suddenly become weapons, and not visiting parents and friends become acts of love.

Suddenly you realise that power, beauty and money are worthless, and can't get you the oxygen you're fighting for.

The world continues its life and it is beautiful. It only puts humans in cages. I think it's sending us a message.

"You are not necessary. The air, earth, water and sky without you are fine. When you come back, remember that you are my guests. Not my masters"

My email address is- if you need to contact me.

Thank you

Mrs Miles
