22 June 2020 : Home learning

The teachers at school have been talking to some families who are continuing to learn from home recently. There was a common topic of conversation : this is all dragging on and becoming quite tricky at times!

It has been a long time since we have all been back at school with our classes and we understand that home learning is challenging. Here are a few links that might help if you are wanting more activities to engage your child.

Top Marks is great for working on all number facts and you can try to improve your own score. We use this in school on iPads but can also be played on laptops : https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/hit-the-button

Numbots and Times Table Rockstars passwords are the same : https://play.numbots.com/#/intro or https://ttrockstars.com/ Email your teacher if you have lost it.

Loads of resources on here including reading : https://www.twinkl.co.uk/resources/parents

For reading and phonics games : https://www.phonicsplay.co.uk/

Maths teaching videos and other resources : https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/

Variety of lessons, recorded by teachers : https://classroom.thenational.academy/

We love Go Noodle for a sing and dance : https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2YBT7HYqCbbvzu3kKZ3wnw

Or Cosmic Yoga Kids for a more relaxing workout : https://www.youtube.com/user/CosmicKidsYoga

Please ring school or email your child’s teacher if you need support and we will try to help.

Weekly spellings :

Y1 : play, today, away, spray, beans, dream, seat, mean

Y2 : cry, fly, dry, try, reply, July, baby, funny, lucky, bunny

Times tables : Choose any times tables and division facts that you want to work on.


Watch the video about adding 2 two digit numbers – crossing ten : https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cY1qlvCHom

Choose 2 or more items from the shop and add them together. Use what you know about adding one and two digit numbers together to help. You might want to draw the tens and ones, draw a part whole model or partition the numbers.


Watch and read the Gerald the Giraffe story. Lots of our learning this week will be linked to this story : https://screencast-o-matic.com/watch/cY1qlNCHFR

Topic – Living and Learning

Watch the video and think about what you could do to make the world a fair place to be where everyone is equal : https://metro.co.uk/2020/06/12/cbeebies-parents-message-racism-12844374/

You could make a poster, draw a picture or write about how you would make the world fair.

In the Cbeebies house we say that everyone is welcome, because we believe that everyone is different and that everyone is equal. It doesn’t matter what you look like, what you sound like or where you come from. Some people are treated unfairly just because of the colour of their skin, and they shouldn’t be. I know that seeing a person for who they really are, and how they make you feel, is beautiful. And I think that it’s really important to talk to your friends and family about these things too, because when we work together we can create change and we can build a better and kinder world for the future and I’m hopeful for that because I believe in you. Because one day, you will be older and you will be looking after the world and all the people in it.

Warm up with some counting with the Big Numbers Song : https://youtu.be/e0dJWfQHF8Y


Read the ‘Skeletons are in the park’ song. Find the rhyming words in the poem. Write some more words that rhyme with the ones you find.

Eg: park, dark, shark, bark

Challenge : Have a go at writing your own poem. It could be about skeletons or anything else you like! You could use this poem and start yours the same but change some of the rhyming words.

Topic – Music/Science

Join in with the song and dance. Do it a few times to try to learn the words and boogie along!

Happy Friday!


We’re continuing our learning about telling the time. Today, have a go at learning to tell the time to the nearest minute. Watch this video and answer these questions.



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?



Have you enjoyed learning another language?

In this lesson, we will recap our numbers and alphabet, as well as saying our name and age in Spanish. We will then expand our number knowledge to learn the numbers up to 31 and the months of the year in Spanish, so that we can say the date of our birthday in Spanish! For this lesson, you will need some paper and a pen or pencil.

Happy Friday- I hope you’ve all had a good week.

Today’s learning……

Year 5 and 6 maths

Today’s challenge is to complete all four levels of Dark Tower of Division on Guardians – Defenders of Mathematica.  If you haven’t completed Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday’s maths lessons, you might want a quick recap before starting. Be warned – Level one is ridiculously easy but levels 2-4 are much, much harder. Good luck on your quest!


It’s Friday and today I would like you to chill, relax and enjoy reading. It could be your own book, magazine, online article or anything else you find interesting to read. Here you can download the First Newspaper, if you want to read some articles about current topics in the news.

Can you summarise (in writing or verbally) to someone in your household what you’ve read today?

SPAG: hyphens

So, I thought a great way to celebrate the end of the week is to do some SPAG! Today’s learning is all about hyphens. Read through this power point and then complete this activity.

  2. How many bones will you have when you grow up?

Good morning, Year 3 and 4.


Here are the asnwers to yesterday’s challenges. (Challenge 1 and challenge 2.)

Today in maths, you’re learning all about telling the time to 5 minutes. Watch this video and then answer these questions. There’s no need to print – you can just write the answers in your home learning book.


Here are the answers to yesterday’s comprehension.

By now you’ve read the text for three days so you should be very familiar with it. Please read it again out loud for excellent fluency.  Today, write some of your own comprehension questions for Mrs Rowley and Mrs Welsby to
answer. Try and include some retrieval, interpret, and choice question – like we have in our RIC style questions. Please send them to us for us to answer.


Follow this link below to a fun geography-based lesson which explores the differences between weather and climate. There are two clips to watch, photos to study and three activities to do. Try to complete the quiz and the second activity (see sheet attached). Click on the link on the webpage to
access the third activity, if you’d like this challenge.
