This week in English we are going to be planning and writing our own story. We want you to write your own version of Dogger. Your story will be all about you losing your favourite toy and how you get them back. On Friday there will be a reading eggs assignment to complete.



We are continuing to look at conjunctions this week- we are looking at and but and or.  Remember conjunctions are joining words. They join two clauses together in a sentence.


We would like you to watch this short video clip which explains how  or and and but can be used from Discovery Education Espresso. You will need to login. Here are the login details:

This week, we are going to continue learning about Place Value within 20.  For each day there is a worksheet which has 3 different levels - Easy (Page 2), Medium (Page 3) and Hard (Page 4).  Please use the sheet which you feel best suits your child. In the Challenge box, there is an additional sheet for each day which is more about problems solving and explaining your thinking.  Feel free to use this if and when you like!


Last week in Topic we learnt about Victorian inventions. This week we are going to look at Victorian household objects and what they were used for. Once you have learnt all about the Victorian household items from the PowerPoint, you are going to look at picture of the items and identify what they are. You can either print the picture, and cut them out, or you can draw the pictures yourself. You are then going to write the name of the household item, and what it was used for. Can you challenge yourself, and write what we use instead of that item now?


This week, we are going to continue looking at materials.  This week we are going to be looking at the properties of different material.  If you can't find some of the objects listed on the sheet, you might want to change them for something different.  

The stars at the top of the sheet show the level (1 star - easy, 2 stars - medium, 3 stars - hard)

Materials And Their Properties

Every single object is made of different materials that have observable properties. This Miniclip sorts and groups materials based on observable properties s...


Carrying on with our unit based on the creation story this term we would like you to make your own Lego creation. In the creation story we know that God was pleased with his creation because it says 'God saw that it was good.' Once you have made your own Lego creation we would like you to send us a picture of it. Think about why your creation is special to you and how you feel about it. Are you proud of it? How would you want other people to treat your creation?



Mrs Gordon thought it would be lovely if you could practise a song while you were at home with your family. You could even teach it to the rest of them - some of you are amazing at dancing too and you could make up a routine to go with it.  Our song is in the link below. 


I know how much some of you like singing and dancing so you could always record yourself singing and dancing to your favourite song and send it to us - we'd really like to see them!


We are continuing to look at the work of L.S. Lowry.  

Over the next few weeks, we are going to create a collage in the style of Lowry, adding a new part each week.  This week we are going to create the buildings. 

L.S Lowry - A Work Of Art

L.S Lowry - A Work Of Art is a compilation of pictures from Lowry accompanied by the song about his life by Brian and Michael - Matchstalk Men And Matchstalk Cats And Dogs


Open the 'Super Sleep' star for a great discussion and activity based on bedtime routines and sleep.


We would like you to start the first coding unit at home. It is lots of fun and you can get more and more creative as you work your way through the lessons at home. Don't worry though it starts off very simple!


We are starting with Level 1- On the Move


The 'On the Move' unit helps you to learn that programs execute by following clear instructions and it helps you to understand that programs respond to inputs to do different things.
