Hello again everyone! I hope you’ve had another lovely week at home, staying safe, having fun and continuing your learning. It was lovely to speak to many of you last week while I was in school and I was very happy to hear you are all doing well! This week I would like to you continue working hard and make sure you are also taking time to enjoy yourselves and maybe even try your hands at learning a new skill! It’s up to you!

This week, I’ll be setting the usual maths, and english tasks with an extra special task this week, as on Friday, the country will be commemorating the 75th anniversary of VE day which celebrates the end of World War 2!

While you’re working hard this week don’t forget to send pictures of your work or you working along to the school email address to get featured on the school website and school Facebook page!

Missing you all very much, stay safe and stay indoors and we’ll be back in school before you know it!

BBC Bitesize

The BBC bitesize website has launched their home learning resources! There will be a maths and english task each day as well as history, geography, science, RE and music through the week to have a go at!  For each lesson their are videos to watch and activities you can have a go at in your home learning books.


This week we will be continuing with learning all about money with added revision of  some of the maths we have already learnt this year. Still one of the best ways to learn about money is to get hold of some and use it to work out different amounts. making sure you are familiar with all the different coins and notes, what they all are worth and how to use them to make different amounts! I will be setting online work relating to money but I would love to hear about some of the inventive ways you have been learning about money by the end of the week!

White rose maths
On the white rose website this week there is revision lessons on written multiplication and bus stop division. A great way to remind yourselves on how some very useful maths is done! Remember to watch the videos before attempting the work as these are there to help!

Remember, if you find this challenging you always can try something from a previous year as well! If you’re finding all this extremely easy and need more work there’s always work from year 5 or 6 if you’re feeling brave!


My Maths/Purple Mash

This week I will be setting maths work on MyMaths and Purple Mash relating to money , multiplication and bus stop division.


Don’t forget to keep practicing your times tables and have a look for any games that involve using money.

Morning Maths Challenge

For any children missing my Morning Maths number 11 challenge, here is an online version of it for you to have a go at





Literacy Company

Once again the booklets found on the literacy company website are full of writing tasks to have a go at!

Free Resources

Once again I have set enough tasks for you to do one a day, SPaG tests ranging from year 1 SPaG to year 4 SPaG. Remember, these tests can be very difficult and will mark your answers wrong if just one word is misspelled or just one piece of punctuation is missing. Take your time and try your best!

Spelling Shed

I have set all groups a new set of spellings this week. Your challenge is to get the rank of ‘Queen Bee’. To practice your writing, you could try to use this weeks spellings in a sentence and write those sentences in your home learning books. Any words you don’t know the meaning of look them up in a dictionary or on the internet!

Pobble365 or Literacy Shed

I am continuing to promote these two great websites and can’t wait to see the stories you’ve written when we get back to school. Simply choose and picture or video and let it be the inspiration for a fantastic story.

This week, why not have a go at the activites on this picture from Pobble365. I would love to see what stories you could come up with from this fab picture

Purple Mash-Reading

Choose a Serial Mash book to read through and have a go at the quizzes and other tasks that it offers. Just do a chapter at a time!

You could also choose a book at home you enjoy reading and make up your own quiz about the parts you have read to challenge other people who read the book!

David Walliams

David Walliams is still doing free audio stories of some of his own books which you will find on his website. Theyre a great listen while your’re working on something else!


Though this is not party of our history or geography topic, VE day in a very important day in world history. On the news this week you may see people preparing to commemorate this special day! Below, you’ll find some tasks you could have a go at to celebrate VE day and learn all about why people celebrate VE day.

Task 1

Read through the two documents below. One is a powerpoint all about VE day and why it is important and celebrated. the other is a copy of Winston Churchill’s speech that he gave on this special day in 1945. Using this information there are plenty of things you could do for example, you could write your own fact file all about VE day, create your own powerpoint to inform others about VE day, research who Winston Churchill was and create a fact file about him or even write your own inspirational speech worthy of a great leader!

If you can, download and print these sheets, one will tell you how to create a paper aeroplane in the design of the iconic fighter plane the Spitfire, could you make this model and research what made the Spitfire so iconic? The other will lead you to some very patriotic bunting to decorate and hang to celebrate this special day in history.
