Learning at Home
I have been very impressed by how well our Owl Class families have adapted to the challenge of home learning, during this unprecedented time.
Thank you for the wonderful photos you have sent of your outdoor learning, spotting nature in your gardens and while out on your daily walks.
I know much Owls were enjoying our class book, Matilda by Roald Dahl, before school closed, so I have recorded myself reading the story, from where we left it.
The first two videos have been uploaded below.
If you enjoy following the story, keep visiting our class page for more installments.
Take care, stay safe and keep on with the great learning at home.
English - Summer Term 1 - Week Beginning 18th May 2020
Dear Parents and children,
Our English work over the next few weeks is based on some mini units devised by the Lancashire English Consultants and will focus on some popular and possibly familiar texts.
The extracts from texts used are all available via the LoveReading4Kids website (https://www.lovereading4kids.co.uk/). In order to access these, a parent needs to register with the website free of charge. As a result, children will then be able to access the required extracts.
Each day, you will be asked to read the extract or watch a film clip and use the skills that you have learned in school to produce some written work.
Below you will find the work set out daily for this week with the links to the extracts and clips in the document.
If your child enjoys reading, or if you would like them to develop a love of books, this website gives you free access to many wonderful texts and linked activities. Click here

Some parents and pupils have expressed a preference for Hamilton Trust's maths lessons, so I am including the link here for those of you who want to continue from where you got up to last term. Both sets of resources are focusing on revision from the Autumn and Spring Terms rather than introducing new concepts, so it won't matter whether you use Hamilton or White Rose or a mixture of both. You can access Hamilton Trust by following the link here
