to go to the work you need to do today. You can always pop back to our class page to do any activity.


Maths, click on and have a go at Summer term week 12. Lesson 1 is for Monday, lesson 2 for Tuesday and so on. The worksheets for the week are below.

There is a short video to show you what to do and then there are some questions for you to have a go at. The answers are also there so you can check how well you have done.

Friday is Maths Challenge Day.

Have a go at the questions on your own or why not work with someone at home to see how many you can complete correctly.


Then you could log onto TT Rockstars and test yourself on your times tables.


For our English work today, have a go at the English lesson for Week 14, days 1 to 5 which are below.

  • Day 1 Read the story of Icarus by Ruth Merttens and Anne Holm Petersen and answer a series of questions about the text. Sequence the story and retell it orally to family members.
  • Day 2 Re-read Icarus and compare the written story with an animated version of the myth. Read a diary entry as if written by Daedalus and then write a diary entry as if written by Icarus.
  • Day 3 Begin to read a longer and more complex version of the story of Icarus, responding to a series of questions about the tale as you read. Read a set of instructions, noting the key features of instruction texts, before then writing Daedalus’s instructions for how to escape the labyrinth.
  • Day 4 – Finish reading the longer and more complex telling of Icarus and then watch a live-action version of the story. Consider all the versions of the myth heard or seen, offering opinions on each and selecting the best of the set.
  • Day 5 – Read the poem ‘Hope is the thing with feathers’ by Emily Dickinson. Answer questions about the poem. Write about hopes for the future for family and friends.


Spelling use the instructions below to log on using our class username and password. Have a go at any activities you have not completed. Or why not try one of these spelling activity on BBC Bitesize?


Enjoy poetry?

If you enjoy poetry or want to listen to some great poetry, try this website that has lots of poets reading poems for you to listen to. There is a featured poet each day and why not get adults to listen with you.

Why not check out poems by Michael Rosen. There is a link to his poem here as well as his website.



Spend time with a 'Reading for Pleasure' book at some point today and see if other family members want to join in with you. Or you could look for a book to read here


Afternoon activities (13th - 17th July)

Monday - Science

Light is something we often take for granted. Understanding how light behaves helps us to understand how we see the world around us. In this lesson we will use mirrors to help us investigate how light reflects and travels.

What do you know about light already? Jot down what you know and ask someone at home what they know.


Watch the BBC Bitesize clip  and then have a go at the activities. There are a couple of practical activities to try and the instructions are below. If you have time, have a go at one of these:

1. Create a poster about light and include what you have looked at today. Share it with someone at home.

2. Research and find an example of where light has been used to help us in our everyday lives. It may from the past or from recent times. Possible ideas could be a lighthouse, periscope.

3. Draw a diagram that shows how light helps us see, perhaps showing how light travels in straight lines.



Art - Make your own comic strip.

I used to love creating my own comics when I was at school. I always read comics such as The Beano, Dandy and Whizzer and Chips. Today you get to create your own comic. I have included a BBC Bitesize clip  that may help you and the blank comic strips are below for you to use, however you can make your own if you want. Have fun.


Wednesday - My Project

Today you will be able to create your own project. It can be on any topic that you are interested in or know a lot about. It could be about whales, dolphins, sharks or dogs. You may want to research your favourite sport or an instrument you play. Pick whatever theme you want and create your own project. You could research your theme using the internet or books you have at home or you may know a lot about it already. Present your topic as a powerpoint or as a booklet or as a poster. You choose. Have fun.


Thursday - German

Have a look at the German clips from BBC Bitesize which are all about school.  Watch the three clips and for each one, create a word bank of the important words you have looked at. Remember to practice saying the words and test yourself at the end by asking someone at home to test you on the words you have written down.



Have a great day,

Mr Scully

BBC Bitesize is now live for children and parents to use. It is a fairly easy to use web resource that covers all age related expectations with videos and on line activities as well as printable activities. These can be used alongside the work we set or for children to have a go at if they find something interesting that they want to learn about.

Below is a link to various Maths games for you try at home. If you know of any games that other children would like, let me know.
