Home Learning.

I have enjoyed keeping in touch with some of you through our class blog. even though we are not together in the classroom we can still help each other in other ways. I look forward to hearing about the different learning you have been doing at home. Below are some pictures of some exciting topic work taking place.


Remember to stay safe and follow any advice and guidelines you are given.  




We are now at the end of our fifth week of not being together in the classroom and it is still very strange not seeing you all. It has been lovely catching up on Zoom and seeing you all. Remember if you can not access the work that has been sent on line not to worry it may be there is a problem with the website. You can always go back to it later, most work set online does not have to be completed on the day it is set, they usually have about 2 days in which to complete. It is lovely to see all the pictures that have been sent in and all the different ways you have been keeping busy.

We have settled well intoY3 and have been working hard. Some children in Y3 have been awarded a pen for the neat presentation of their work. Last half term we learned about life in the Stone Age Times. We learned about the tools they used and we made our own. In order to do this we went into the school grounds and collected a stick and a suitable stone, then we went back into class and Mrs Hill gave us some string to tie out sticks and stones together.


This half term in Geography we are learning about deserts and how they are made. In art we have been trying to reproduce some Aboriginal Art. We have been using chalks and dots to create our own versions, this took lots of time and patience.


In science we have looked at rocks and made comparisons, we have also investigated the hardness and permeability of rocks. This half term we are looking at magnets and how strong they are and what materials they are attracted to.


We are enjoying our leaning and look forward to learning more during the rest of the year.
