Good morning Hares!

Below are the documents for today-they do not need to be printed, you can do the tasks directly into your book. You will also need to look at the video/story extract posted yesterday afternoon if you haven't had a chance to look at it yet. See you all at 11.45 for our English lesson.

Wednesday Update-English

Here is the next part of the story for you to read/watch prior to tomorrow's lesson.

Make sure you have a pencil and some paper ready for the live this morning, we can't wait to see you at 11:45am for maths!

Maths Follow up


Hi all!  There were a few queries about number of questions for each task, versus number of answers given-I've had a look through and they seem to match up. Just make sure when today's answers are posted later that you are using the correct answers to mark the correct questions (Mild, Warm or Hot).

Remote learning - Wednesday 6th January 2021

Good morning Hares,


It was great to see so many of you on Zoom yesterday. We really enjoyed seeing all of your smiley faces again after the Christmas break.

The answers from yesterday's maths have been uploaded so make sure you have a quick look to see how you have done.

We have another busy day ahead of us. Make sure you have had a go at the tasks from yesterday before starting on the tasks from today.


See you at 11:45am!

Remote learning Tuesday 5th January 2021

Good morning Hares,


We hope that you are all excited and ready for our first day of remote learning. Both Miss Sharman and myself are really looking forward to seeing you on zoom at 11:45am.


Below you will find a document that sets out your tasks for the day. Each day you will need come and visit our class page to see what activities and tasks we have set for you. We will try as hard as we can to not attach too many documents for you. 


Today you will need to make sure that you can see a copy of the attached image of a submerged city for your reading task.


If you get stuck on ideas for your English task then there is an example that we have put up for you to have a look at.


Remember, as well as you set daily tasks you should still be reading, practicing your spellings and times tables and checking for Mathletics tasks.


See you all at 11:45 - don't forget your pencils and paper!


Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

Welcome back to term 3!


Whilst it isn't quite the start we were expecting, there is still lots of new and exciting learning to come. We have uploaded the new topic web for the term which introduces our new topic - Oxford. As well as this there is a new home learning grid with tasks related to our topic and spelling grids.


You may notice that there are a few different spelling grids for this term - during our remote leaning we will be looking at the main Hares spelling grid and teaching you the spelling rules that are on there but, as part of your remote learning tasks we would like you to look at your year group spelling lists and have a go at learning the words that are on there as well. These are some of the words that you should be able to spell by the end of the year.


Keep practicing you spellings using the strategies that we have looked at.
See you all soon,

Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

Home learning due to Covid-19 isolation


If your child is isolating at any point, please refer to the class' current home learning grids and spelling lists below for home learning tasks. In addition, your child should log in to Mathletics and complete the tasks they have set on there. They should also be reading and discussing what they have read with an adult on a daily basis.


Please see below for past home learning grids / activities / resources.

Welcome to the new year, Hares!


We hope that you have had a great first week back, we have really enjoyed working with you.


Below are copies of the work that have been sent home in your homework book.

You have:

- a spelling sheet - you will work on these words in school, but also practise them at home.

- a homework grid - choose a task to complete each week.

- a reading record - complete it each time you finish a book and see how many of the challenges you can complete this year.

- your Mathletics logins have been sent home and you should log on each week to see what work has been set.  Feel free to play maths games once you've finished your assigned task.


If for some reason you are unable to come to school, please use these as a basis for your work.  Be original and work to the best of your ability.  For example, you could:

- write out your spellings in super sentences in your best handwriting.

- review a book from your reading challenge.

- choose a task from the homework grid and take the time to plan, produce, edit and publish to a very high quality.


Keep up the good work!


Miss Gardner and Miss Sharman

Hello Hares!

As promised, here is the suggested home learning for you! 

Please feel free to work through the grid at your own pace. We have attached some support resources as well as some useful websites.

We wish you a relaxing and fun summer holiday. Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you all in September.
