Good morning!


Have you ever fancied being a detective? Every time you infer something that you have read, you are being a reading detective. Today, your reading task is a “Whodunnit” story. Whodunnits are a story where the reader acts as a detective to find clues and solve the crime. When you have read the text, you need to complete a deductions sheet much like a real detective. You’ll need to think carefully about each of the suspect’s alibis. Finally, bring all of the clues together to make a deduction about who committed the crime. I’ll post the answers tomorrow.

Again, there are three different possibly challenge levels. Choose the challenge that you think is right for you.

1 star – story and deductions page.

2 star – story and deductions page.

3 star – story and deductions page.



Today, we are continuing our learning about mass here with Oak National Academy. In this lesson, we will begin to add and subtract mass, including regrouping the values. We will use the partitioning strategy as a process to add or subtract the mixed-units (kg and g).

PE: virtual sports day

07 July 2020 : Whole school home learning (Let’s get sporty!)

Posted on Monday 06 July 2020 by Mrs Latham

Whole school sporting activities

Sadly, our favourite events of the year – sports days – cannot take place in it’s normal format this year. However, the next best thing is to take part in a virtual sports day and we’re excited to be joining the West Yorkshire Virtual School Games Sports Day on Tuesday 7th July. The day will involve the children taking part in multiple activities with the chance to compete against other schools across the county. There will be a number of prizes on offer too.
What do you need to do?
Have a look at the guidance for parents/carers to help you prepare for the day.
When does it take place?
There is a live opening ceremony shown here at 10am on Tuesday 07 July and the activities can be completed at any point in the day.
Is this just for children who are back at school?
No – the activities can be done by children at school and at home. The sports day will be one of your child’s home learning activities on the day.
What are the activities?
The parent guide gives details of all the activities and instructions will also be given on the video released on the day.
Do children have to complete all the activities?
We would encourage the children to have a go at as many as they can but they don’t have to complete them all.
How do we submit results?
This is the link to submit results (live from 10am on 07 July up till 12pm on the 08 July). All children’s results will be added to their school score.
We would love to see the virtual sports day in action so please share any photos of your children taking part and good luck to everyone!

Good morning, Year 3 and 4. Are you ready for another week of home learning?

Here is your learning for today.


Head to Oak National Academy to learn all about measures. In this lesson, we will use our knowledge of reading scales and our understanding of mass to compare and order different values.



Have you ever seen the film “How to train your dragon?” well today, your reading task is a comprehension task all about training dragons? I wonder if they have the same ideas.

There are three options for this task. You can choose the challenge you want to do. 1 star = easier. 2 star = medium. 3 star = harder. Don’t be too easy on yourself – give yourself a challenge!



Today, head to Oak National Academy to learn more about plants. In this lesson, we will learn about how plants transport water internally and watch this in an experiment.

Good morning, Year 3 and 4!

It’s Friday! Hope you’ve all had a happy, healthy, and successful week.


How did you find yesterday’s challenge to send questions in? Thank you to Evie for her super questions. Can you answer them?

  1. Who introduced social distancing?
  2. What will social distancing do?
  3. How do Myra and Jagrati kept in touch with their grandparents?
  4. At school are there more or less pupils?
  5. Why do you think Myra and Jagrati put on the play?
  6. What three things have the government asked people to do?

For today’s reading session it is Love of reading.
In class, we’d usually have a Love of Reading session each week where we read something
that we love. Adults use the time to read with children.
Today, I’d like you to…
● Get really comfy: wear some thick socks, a dressing gown or wooly jumper. Sit somewhere soft and relaxing.
● Turn all electronic devices off: TVs, radios, computers, phones, tablets, etc.
● Spend some quality time reading with each other. Read aloud, take it in turns, put on voices for characters, re-read things to improve how you’re reading them.
● Talk about what you’re reading. Which are the best bits? Why? Does it remind you of other things you’ve read or watched? Do you know anything about parts of it from other knowledge that you have? What do you think of the characters? What will happen next? Why do you think that?



It’s challenge Friday! Head over to BBC Bitesize for today’s maths challenge.


Living and Learning: I can make healthy choices

This week, our living and learning statement has been all about making healthy choices. It is often easier to make healthy choices with our food and our body – we know to eat healthily and to exercise but what about a healthy mind? That is just as important!

Today, we’re thinking about keeping our minds healthy. Follow some of the links below and have a go at some activities.
