Tuesday 14th July

Hi Class Four,

We had trouble with the Internet on and off during the day yesterday, so I thought it would be best to share our Monday messages with you today so that hopefully you will all get to read them.

I had a really lovely weekend. My Mum and sister (Loris) came up to stay for the whole weekend. On Saturday we took the dogs (all four of them! Flash, Oliver and Darty who are Mum's dogs and Scrumptious, my sister's pug) to the river. Flash had a lovely time jumping in and out of the water after a huge stick. The other dogs enjoyed the walk but didn't fancy swimming! During the day we sat out in the sunshine, read our books and had a nap - so did the dogs and Fred! In the evening we walked round Lakeside and then watched the film Wall-E.

On Sunday, I got up early and went for a nice run with Mrs Pilgrim then I went home, got the dogs and went for another river walk. When we got back, we sat in the garden and I opened my birthday presents. I was spoilt rotten! I had loads of chocolate, some lovely things for my house - pretty things to put up on the walls, plants and things for my garden, a book, a DVD, a Joe Wicks bottle and cooking book and some things to help me with baking cupcakes. There were lots of other lovely things too. We had a picnic style lunch in the garden and a chocolate caterpillar birthday cake (my Mum gets me one every year!). In the afternoon, my friend Mich came over - she used to be my next door neighbour, so Fred was super happy to see her as she used to feed him when I was away! Then Mrs Soley came over and we had a nice chat and ice cream in the garden. In the evening it was the family quiz. So a busy but lovely day.

Hope you have a lovely day, keep working hard!

Love Miss Olver x

Here is a message from Mrs Soley:

Happy Monday everyone,

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and enjoyed the sunshine whatever you decided to do with your families.  Could this be the return of summer?  Let’s hope so as this week looks quite good as well. 

I had a lovely start to my weekend as my daughter Hannah and Grandson Jacob were waiting for me when I got home from school.  Hannah was trying to hide in the lounge with Jacob but he gave it away by making giggling noises.  We had a good play before teatime and then afterwards too.  Jacob had his bedtime milk while we had our dinner and then he went straight to bed.  We then enjoyed a film which Mr Soley had wanted to watch for a while called “The Aeronauts” about a man who studied the weather and a female pilot in the 1860s who flew up in a hot air balloon to 37,000 feet, the highest anyone had ever been.  It was very interesting and quite exciting at times, if you don’t like heights, watch out!

We had a fairly early start on Saturday morning due to Jacob waking up at 5.30.  It certainly made the day feel longer. Jacob likes to feed himself a lot now which can be tricky especially when it’s milky Weetabix.  I had to put those pyjama bottoms in the wash afterwards!  Hannah decided she wanted to do a Joe Wicks workout with me so we did the one from last Saturday (the one we did on Thursday).  She enjoyed it but thought it was quite hard but it encouraged her to try another one so that’s good. 

We made a picnic and drove down to The Common in Southampton for lunch.  We had a nice walk around first in the sunshine and then found a shady spot not far from the lake.  It was lovely and as you can see from one of my photos, Jacob and Grandad took part in synchronised eating.  I love that Jacob is perched on Grandad’s knee enjoying his lunch.  After we’d had our lunch, we walked up into Southampton because Hannah wanted to buy Jacob some new shoes as he has almost grown out of his others.  As you can see from the photo, he seems to like his Buzz Lightyear trainers. 

Well, this is our last full week of home learning so make the most of it and enjoy it.

Best wishes.

Mrs Soley xx


It’s Tuesday today, which means Times Tables test day! All of the times tables tests and grids are available on the Maths Help section on the Class Four website. Go on there and find the one you need to work through today. Give yourself 5 minutes to complete the test. All the answers are also in the Maths Help section so you can mark it yourself once you are finished.

Year 5

Today you are going to be continuing with your shape work looking at how shapes can be translated. Go to the White Rose Home Learning Year 5 website and go to Summer Term, Week 11, Lesson 4 which is called 'Translations'. Watch the video, work through the worksheet and then check your answers.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at the extension task below. It has 6 questions on linked to reflecting and translating shapes. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.

Year 6

Today you are going to be learning about circles. Go to the White Rose Home Learning Year 6 website, choose Week 12, Lesson 2 which is called 'Circles'. Watch the video, work through the worksheet and then check your answers. Some of the questions ask you to explain your ideas, so I have attached a document below sharing my explanations and reasoning - this might help you to mark your work.

If you have time, or want an extra challenge, have a go at the extension sheet below. It has three problems on similar to the pink problems we often do at the end of our Maths lessons in class. I have attached the answers so you can check your work.


Today I would like you to write your story. You are going to have time to illustrate your story tomorrow afternoon, so think about how you lay it out so you have room for your pictures too. If you are doing it on a laptop and have access to Publisher, then this can be good for organising work into a book format. If you are doing it by hand, you could fold some pages in half to create a book.

When you're writing your story, think about:

  • How you will start your story. You need an interesting story starter to get the reader's attention.
  • Introducing your characters and setting so your reader can imagine what they are like.
  • Building suspense and tension in the dilemma.
  • How you will resolve (or possibly not resolve if it doesn't have a happy ending!) your story


Mrs Soley has planned a lovely art activity for you this afternoon, enjoy smiley
