Thursday 7th May

Good morning Class Four,

I hope you have had a good week so far with your learning. Remember today is the last day of home learning for this week as tomorrow is the bank holiday. It is a very special bank holiday which has been called VE Day. Mr Woolley has put a few resources up which you might want to have a look at to find out more about this event - you could do this today or tomorrow. Click on the link below to find out more.

Yesterday I was in school for the day. I was on with Miss Newton, we had a nice time catching up and helping the children with their home learning. It was pizza day so that was good! Our classroom has now been deep-cleaned by Mr and Mrs Buckley and me so it will be lovely and clean and organised when we get to come back smiley

It is up to you whether you send me your weekly email today or tomorrow - there won't be a learning page tomorrow as it's the bank holiday. Remember to send me your art work from Tuesday and another piece of work you are proud of (or more if you would like of course!). Let me know how you are and what you've been up to. I love hearing from you.

Have a great day, work hard as always! And a great weekend.

Love Miss Olver x

Fred and me having a little "chat"! I think he was trying to tell me that he was hungry and wanted his supper, but clearly I wasn't listening properly! Poor old Fred!

Here is a message from Mrs Soley:

Happy nearly Friday everyone,

For next week’s recipe we are making Greek style meatballs.  You will need:

Minced pork/beef (although Quorn will work but do not defrost it), onion, garlic, 1 egg, dried parsley and mint, olive oil, oregano, salt and pepper and a little flour to coat the meatballs.  This looks like a lot of ingredients but hopefully they are mostly things you already have.

As well as cooking we will be doing some art.  You will need a cereal box, white paper, colouring pens/pencils or paints and some glue/tape.

My photos show my grandson playing in his new sandpit.  It is a birthday present but his mum and dad couldn’t wait to let him play in it.  I cannot believe he will be one year old in three weeks’ time.  I don’t know where the time has gone.

My other photo is my blossoming rhododendron.  As you know it finally came out recently but has now decided to bloom properly.  Each day, more and more of the flowers are coming out and it is so lovely to see in my garden.  When it has finished blooming, we will be moving it and in its new position we will be able to see it better for future years.  This plant is now 18 years old and was moved 4 years ago when we moved to a new house so we must be careful with it. 

Have a brilliant Bank Holiday weekend, fingers crossed for some sunshine so that we might spend lots of time outside in the fresh air.  I’m thinking picnic, scones and cream obviously after a PE workout. 

I enjoyed Joe's 'Play Your Cards Right' session again yesterday. At least the Joker wasn't quite as bad as last week! I wonder what he has lined up for us today?


It's Thursday, which means Learn It day. If you still have one left in your folder, work through this, if not, send me an email letting me know which one you need and I will send it through to you. If you are on the Ultimate Learn It challenges, then these are saved under the Maths Help section of the website so you can help yourself. Give yourself 2 minutes to complete it. Once you are finished, if an adult is free, you could ask them to kindly mark it for you, if not, mark it yourself with a calculator.


Year 5

Today you are going to be continuing with your work on decimals. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 5 website and find Summer Term Week 1, Lesson 4 which is called ‘Adding Decimals – Crossing the Whole’. Watch the video and work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, you have two choices today. You can continue working through some of the tasks in the Number Bonds to 1 booklet from yesterday. Or you can have a go at the extension task for today which has a pink problem and a little game you might want to play working on adding decimals when crossing the whole.

Year 6

Today you are going to be continuing to work on angles. Go to the White Rose Maths Home Learning Year 6 website and find Summer Term Week 1, Lesson 2 which is called ‘Angles in a Triangle’. Watch the video and work through the worksheet. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at the extension sheet below where you need to find the missing angles in a range of shapes. I have shown my workings on the answers, so if you're not sure how to solve them, have a look and see how I worked them out.


Remember to write an entry in your diary/journal at some point today.

Topic Session 1

Today I would like you to read another Greek myth. You can choose either: The Quest of Medusa’s Head or Pandora’s Box.


Then I would like you to retell the myth, similar to the activity we did last week. You might want to choose a different way of retelling this time. Here are some options you might choose, but you might be able to think of a more creative way to retell it which is also fine.

  • Draw a story map with pictures and captions
  • Fill in a story mountain sheet
  • Create a Powerpoint showing the main events from the story
  • Rewrite the story in your own words
  • Create a film of the story
  • Create a piece of artwork based around the story

Topic Session 2

As it is the bank holiday tomorrow, Mrs Soley has written an easy ice cream recipe so you can make some tasty treats to help you celebrate! Enjoy smiley

Spellings and Reading

Although today is Thursday, it is the last day of learning for this week, which means it is spelling test day! You have two choices, you can watch the video of me reading the sentences and use this to test yourself (remember you can pause it and replay it as many times as you need to) or you can ask a parent to read out the sentences for you. Then you can mark them using the document below.

Try and do some independent reading of a book of your choice.
