After today, it is the Easter break for two whole weeks! I won't be uploading any daily work. Please use this time to relax, spend time with your family and enjoy some downtime away from school work. You have earned it!
Also thank you to all the parents and carers for their support during these challenging couple of weeks and to the children for all their hard work at home! It has been a massive change but everyone has been amazing!
For anyone that does want to complete some work during the break, I have created an Easter Homework document below which is full of activities. I hope you all have a wonderful break. Happy Easter!

In Geography we have been looking at energy and conservation.
Using your amazing maths skills, can you think about changes you and your family could make at home and then calculate the energy you would save?
The worksheet for this is attached further down the page.
Could you design an energy efficient house or school, incorporating materials and technologies to help reduce energy usage and avoid creating unnecessary waste?
Think about the properties you have learnt in science. What would keep your house warm?
Scientists use chemical reactions to create useful new materials.
Can you create a fact file about a scientist and the new material they made?
You should research the scientist and their life, such as when and where they lived, and what they did. You should also find out about the new material, its properties and how it is useful.
Your fact file could be written on a piece of paper, made into a book or created using a computer. Include pictures and diagrams to add interest!
Examples of scientists and the new materials they made include:
Spencer Silver, who invented the glue for sticky notes Harry Brearly, who invented stainless steel.

Come and have a look at our class page to find out about important notices and links to useful websites and videos to further support your child’s learning at home.
Reading books will be changed after your child has read their book and completed their reading quiz. Please ensure your child reads at least three times a week and please sign their reading record book each time they have read.
Homework is set on a Friday and consists of Reading Eggs Assignments and Matheletics Assignments. It is very important to support your child's learning at home.
Spelling Tests are on a Monday and new spellings will be given out on a Tuesday. They will also copy these down in class and have the opportunity to practice them each morning in class through various activities. Children are also expected to practice these spellings and rules at home to further embed this knowledge.
PE will be every Wednesday afternoon this half-term and children will be taking part in Hockey. Please ensure children have the correct PE Kit (white top, black shorts and black PE pumps). PE kits should stay in school and will be sent home at the end of each half-term to be washed.
Here are the links to some of the exciting websites that children use in school to support their reading, comprehension skills and numeracy. Children will have their own passwords and we will be able to monitor their understanding to support them further.
This half term in ICT we have been using Spheros to create a game
Our class assembly was all about Chinese New Year
We have been identifying materials that are thermal insulators. We then planned and carried out an investigation into which materials made the best thermal insulator.
