First of all, we are pleased to announce the winner of the competition. Congratulations to everyone who took part – you will all receive a certificate, some individual feedback and a prize (when we can get it to you in a socially distanced way). However, the overall winner was Emma for her inspired and detailed picture, drawing on her own experiences in her garden during lockdown. Well done!
We hope you’ve had a wonderful half-term and made the most of the glorious weather by being outside as much as possible. Are you relaxed and ready to start another term of learning? Again, there are 5 maths lessons with worksheets and answers, 5 English lessons and a SPaG task. Also, there are wider curriculum lessons and you can decide which days you complete them.
Please send us emails with pictures, messages and videos of what you have been up to and your learning. As we are now working in school, we will reply at least once a week.
Looking forward to hearing from you all!
Mrs Byfield and Miss Taylor

Finally, use https://mathsbot.com/ question generator to practise your arithmetic skills.
Literacy: Writing instructions
SPaG – Revise relative clauses
These are such a key skill for any good writer – make sure you can use them accurately and where they add useful information.
Task 1 – Science: Sedimentary Rock
We’re moving on to the 3rd type of rock this week – sedimentary rocks. Can you send us your most fascinating fact?
Task 2 – History: Medieval Monarchs
We’re going to spend the next few weeks looking at monarchs from the medieval era – a very exciting and fast moving time in our national history. Will you be able to decide which king was the best? And more importantly, which king was the worst?!
Task 3 – Computing
Learn about algorithms and how to debug.
Algorithms are a set of instructions to complete a task.
Debugging means finding and removing errors (or “bugs”) from your code. Computer programmers can sometimes make mistakes (aka ‘bugs’) when writing their code.
Task 4 – Spanish
You may want to re-watch the video from last week to learn the alphabet and how to count. It takes practise and repetition to learn any new skill.
If you think you are ready for the next lesson which is how to introduce yourself in Spanish.
I would highly recommend using duolingo which can be downloaded as an app or used on the website https://www.duolingo.com/. Just 5 minutes a day will help you learn another language.
Task 5 – Music Challenge
We’d love to see videos or photos of the instruments you make!
