The School Day:
School reading books need to be read daily and the reading record signed by an adult. They will be checked every morning at school. If children wish to complete reading quizzes at home they can do so by accessing Accelerated Reader online.
Children are expected to practise their times tables daily by accessing TimesTableRockstars.
Children will be set Maths homework tasks on Mathletics each Monday. These tasks will consolidate their learning from the previous week and must be completed by the following Monday when new tasks will be set.
Your child has been sent home their login details for each of these online learning tools. If they have lost or misplaced them, please inform a member of staff immediately so we can replace them. They can access the activities by following the links below.

Academic Year 2021 - 2022
We used the poem 'In Flanders Field' as inspiration for a watercolour picture. We used layering techniques to intensify the colour.
We wrote poems in the style of 'In Flanders' Fields'.
We created travel brochures for our own fantasy island.
Invasion and Belonging
We used a dictionary to define the words ‘invasion’ and ‘belonging’.
We discussed the following questions:
We created a continuum line on our tables with ‘Belonging’ at one end and ‘Invasion’ at the other. As a group, we explored each of the concepts and how they are linked. We used post-it notes to give examples of each which related to our personal experiences.
Invasion is when…
I have felt…
Belonging and invasion are linked …
We discussed the question – ‘Can invasion ever become belonging?’
Our English text is 'The Rabbits' by Shaun Tan and John Marsden. This stunning picture book examines the consequences of the arrival of a group of rabbits with entirely unfamiliar ways.
