Spring Term 2 2021


Tuesday 2nd March 2021

Good Morning Boys and Girls,

I hope you all had a good St David's Day yesterday, even if the sun did struggle to shine. Later this week is World Book Day - I've a couple of things up my sleeve for that - but I'm afraid you'll have to wait till Thursday. So what's on the agenda today?

Wake and Shake

We've not had this one for a while and it always makes us smile.

Maths Meeting


This is the 1st part of a 2 part lesson. The worksheet covers both days.



Work through the PowerPoint. By the end of this lesson, you will have completed both a headline (lesson 3) and the orientation (or lead) paragraph for your newspaper article. Please put them both in one document and upload them to teams. You will need these later to put at the front of your completed report.




Spend some more time looking around the BBC 'OWN IT' webpages - lots of advice so you have the best, safest and most enjoyable time using the internet.

Have a terrific Tuesday everyone.


Monday 1st March 2021

Good Morning Children,

What a lovely weekend it has been weather wise, it really does feel like spring in all that sunshine. Whilst, I don't think it is going to be quite as bright today we have lots to look forward to. This is our final week of home learning, then we'll all be back together next Monday.

I've got some interesting lessons to keep us motivated this week. Before we begin though, I'd like to start today with a Class Collective Worship.

Collective Worship

Today 1st March is a special Saint's day for one of the countries in the United Kingdom. Do you know which Country it is and Which patron saint? Here are some clues.

For next week - back in school -

Please read the next two chapters - Chapter 7 & Chapter 8



Science and Geography

Here is another fabulous rainforest model. This is Euan's. It's very ingenious. He has used real plants to create the different layers of the rainforest. It's still growing too, his cress on the forest floor is just beginning to sprout. Euan, send in another photo when the additional greenery has come through. Brilliant!



Remember to play the slideshow to access the video links.

For anyone who can't see the videos here they are seperately



The snub-nosed monkey is an example of an animal adapted to its environment ( it is not an Amazon rainforest animal)

Have an amazing Monday everyone.

Friday is here already. That went quickly. Just one more week's home learning then we're all back together. Hurray!

It was great to see so many of you in our Teams meeting. I did enjoy the games. Some more next week AND I've worked out how to get the sound coming through on the song so we'll all be able to sing along too. Not too strenuous a day today so let's go.

Good morning Everyone,

Hope your week is going well despite the rainy weather. I'm looking forward to seeing and speaking to everyone this afternoon on our Teams meeting. Lots to get through before 2 o'clock so I won't delay you.

Here we go!

Keeping with Supermovers this week let's dodge and shoot some alien space craft.

Bella's rainforest                                                Tilly's rainforest


If anyone else has pictures of their rainforests please send them in. If you have sent it in and I've missed it - my apologises - please can you resend.



Have a good day and I'll see you at 2pm for our class teams meeting.




Wednesday 24th February 2021

Good morning Children,

Thank you for the photos you are sending in for our 'Nature and Wildlife' challenge . I'll upload them to the gallery when I'm back in school tomorrow - my home internet struggles with this. If you have sent in some winter photos and would like to add some Spring ones that would be great.

I'm also looking forward to sharing your amazing rainforests in a box models, but you'll have to wait till Geography for that as well! 

What have we got for today?

Wake and Shake

Let's stick with Supermovers and have some Springwatch fun to inspire all you budding photographers.

Maths Meeting


Let's find out if your predictions were correct. Did you workout what was going to happen?

Have a good day everyone. 


Tuesday 23rd February 2021

It's good news! We'll all be back in school very soon. I'm so looking forward to having Class 4 back together again. I've lots of fun things planned for us to do through to the summer.

Unfortunately, although this is happening soon it's not immediate so I do need everyone to keep working hard on their home learning.When we return, I will be continuing in class exactly where we finish the home learning so it's very important you keep up to date with all our lessons.

I know I can rely on you all to do this 

What have we got for Tuesday?

Wake and Shake

Maths Meeting




Firstly, just a small reminder your 'Finding Tale' assignment from before half term is due in by Thursday. A big well done to the 6 people who have handed it in so far.

Today we are beginning a new unit of work which I'm sure you'll enjoy. It's a film unit called Lighthouse. Here goes.


We are going to begin some cricket sessions this half-term.

Play the video and have some fun!


Following on from internet safety week I thought we could explore different ways to keep safe, make the most and enjoy our time online.

Check out BBC 'OWN IT'.

Have a good day everyone.



Monday 22nd February 2021

Welcome back Everyone,

I hope you have all had a great half-term. We definitely all needed a break; you worked so, so hard. Hopefully you've managed some outside time last week away from screens. I have - lots of long walks with my dogs and plenty of fresh air. There are certainly signs of spring to be seen now.

Why not get out there, take some photos for our 'Nature and Wildlife competition'. We have a lot of wintery, icey photos in our gallery which are fantastic. Can we add to them showing the earth waking up again?

Don't forget Nigel Pope BBC wildlife documentary producer will be judging your entries. Here is a clip from his recent series 'Stormborn' (3 episodes are available to watch on iplayer- these animals are very well adapted to their harsh environment - fits with our science, don't you think )

Back to the competition, there are prizes for the winners, too, I-spy books and a special book for the overall winner. The closing date for the competition is Monday 8th March 2021. Good Luck Everyone.

Further inspiration, have a look at some of the amazing winning photos from the Natural History Museum's Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Take care, taking your photos though - don't get eaten by a tiger!

Please complete the questions relating to Chapter 5 Food(Almost), then hand-in your work in assignments on Teams by Wednesday 24th February @4pm.


This is the second lesson on Equivalent Fractions.



Before we start Lesson 2, I must share Bobbi's camouflaged moths from Lesson 1. If you remember it was a very snowy time and I was expecting 

But I got, this. Bobbi created her own background and camouflaged her moths into it. Well done Bobbi, super adaptation.
