Hello Willow! 

I hope you all had a good week last week. It was lovely catching up with most of you on the phone and hearing what you have been getting up to. Those that i didn't manage to speak to i'll be phoning very soon.

Here are the main activities for this week with extra websites below.  


WHITE ROSE MATHS https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ 

Please click on the appropriate year group.

BBC Bitesize - I've included links below as an alternative to White Rose.




Talk For Writing Home-school Booklets - 2 week booklets (this is week 2)

Please use https://mailchi.mp/talk4writing/home-school-booklets. There are English booklets created for each year group.

Year 5 – The Year 5s will create their own text based on the story ‘Jumanji’.

Year 6 - The Year 6's will use 'Doors - The World Of Possibility' as a stimulus for writing.

Both workbooks have comprehension and grammar activities, and the children can work through them at their own pace. In addition, there are links to recordings of the original stories so that the children can work independently.

Don't forget BBC Bitesize also has some great activities.


The Circulatory System


What is the circulatory system? What is in your blood? What are blood vessels? How does your heart work? How do your lungs work?

I would like you to research the questions above. The BBC website is a good place to start, but what can you find out about your body and how it works? How are you going to present your findings?

Be creative! You could make a PowerPoint, ‘Word’ report, Poster, Newspaper article, 3D model, piece of artwork or something else of your choosing. When you’re finished it would be great to see what you have been up to and share them on our Twitter page. Or email pictures to Mrs McCarthy at school (the school email). 

Other Useful Websites

Here is a quick reminder of the main websites and resources that you could be using during this week to carry on your learning.

You should have a login for the websites, but if you have forgotten or lost it please send an email to Mrs McCarthy and we will try our best to send a reminder.
