I will try and keep this page updated with as much information as possible regarding how to educate your child at home!


Children will be given their spellings on a weekly basis and tested on a Friday. We have a weekly battle of the bands on Times Tables Rockstars with MVP up for grabs! Homework will be given out at the beginning of each term - with weekly spelling homework. 


Also READ AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE! It is incredible to see the impact that this has! This term the children have chosen Abomination by Robert Swindells as our class book, we shall also be reading our usual mix of poems and short stories such as the Just So Stories by Rudyard Kipling..

Science: Separating materials.


In Science last week, the children were given a portion of 'Alien Soup'. It contained: rice, sand, plastic, paperclips and bark, as well as a secret ingredient - salt. The salt had dissolved and at the end of the lesson we discussed how we would go about separating the salt-water solution. 

Our school values: Perseverance

Here is an excellent example of perseverance from the girls during Lockdown - completing a 1,000 piece puzzle. Unfortunately two pieces had gone walkabout, but it doesn't take anything away from their achievement!

Christmas: Mr Jelf's Christmas Quiz!

A flashback to Christmas!

Maths: Problem Solving


In maths this week, the children have been working together to improve their problem solving skills. They were given a booklet of SATs questions and they had to work together to solve them. For every mark, they got a Lego brick and at the end of the lesson, they had time to build their creations!

Guided Reading: WW1 Research


In Guided Reading this week, the class have lead their own learning and researched their own questions about WW1. They then presented their information in the form of a poster. We had posters on what life was like in the trenches, what animals were involved in WW1 and what food the soldiers would have eaten during the war.

Jigsaw: What does it mean to be normal?

The children have been thinking about what it would be like to lose your sight and how that would affect their day to day lives. We went out into the wildlife area and they needed to navigate themselves around a course with a partner directing them.

This term the children have chosen to read Abomination by Robert Swindells.

Forest School

Last term, the entire class had the opportunity to go out into our amazing Wildlife Area and do some activities with the much-loved Mrs Millman. The children had an amazing time and I can't wait to get out there more with them!

Black History Month

As a part of Black History month, the children have completed a series of lessons on racism. They have learnt about what the word means, as well as what racial discrimination can look and sound like. We have learnt about one of the greatest civil rights protests the country has seen - The Bristol Bus Boycott - and the children have shown great empathy whilst imagining what the men involved would have been thinking/feeling.
