I hope that you and your family are well. Lots of you logged onto Purple Mash and Times Tables Rockstars last week and I can see that you're working incredibly hard at home.
I have added some new resources on our website over the last week. One website that I think is brilliant and will be something that you enjoy is the Natural Curriculum. It has fantastic videos of animals for you to watch and some writing ideas to help you practise all of the skills that you have been taught this year.
I have also added a link to a website that is full of R.E activities. These activities are linked to other subjects too such as Art and are very interesting.
On the Home School Link of the website I have added some Take Five videos that you might like to do with your family at home. I sent out the password to access these videos on Marvellous Me but please contact the office if you would like a reminder of the password. This week I should be receiving more videos to add to our collection.
It has been lovely to see photos of some of the excellent pieces of work you have been completing at home. I have been adding some of the photos onto the gallery section of the school website. Please keep emailing your photos to the school office email address- I am enjoying seeing them.
Keep working hard but please do not put too much pressure on yourselves- you are all doing an amazing job and should be so proud of yourselves and the adjustments you have made to your learning.
Remember to do something fun each day. This could be playing on your garden, taking part in the Joe Wicks exercise, playing board games with your family, keeping in contact with your friends or baking.
Keep being amazing- I am very proud of you all and I am missing you lots.

White Rose Hub have created a home learning section which includes 5 maths lessons. The children can watch the 5 minute video explaining the task and then complete the work sheet. They are providing 5 lessons per week which follows the curriculum.
Similar to White Rose Maths, Oak National Academy have designed an online classroom where they are uploading a range of lessons each week tailored towards the year 5 and 6 curriculum. These include 5 English and Maths lessons and a range of foundation subjects including Science, History and Modern Foreign Languages. This may be a resource that you would like to use at home throughout the next couple of weeks.
This website is aimed at Year 5 children, giving them daily grammar activities to complete based on animals. There is a video for each activity for the children to watch and a range of activities to complete. This may also be a good website for Year 6 children to use to recap on previous learning.
There is also a Home Learning section of the website that is specific for different year groups. Each year group is given an animal of focus and are asked to watch a video before completing a written task.
Additional to writing activities, the website provides links to the National Geographic Kids website where the children can follow links to learn about science, geography and history.
Grimm & Co are in the process of launching a range of writing activities for children to take part in during the home learning period.

The website below will take you directly to their website.
Natre is a website where you will find free resources and activities to complete during this home learning period. It covers a range of aspects relating to Religious Education and has lots of fun activities for the children to do.
