Considering our school for your child to start in September 2021? Unfortunately, we are unable to offer parent tours; please view this video for a flavour of our school.
Good morning everyone!
I am so impressed with all the hard work that you completed yesterday. Thank you so much for sharing it with me.

Just as a normal day in school, Maths and English are maximum 1 hour sessions and Reading, Spelling, Number Magic and any other subjects are maximum 1/2 hour sessions.
Today your activities include Reading, Number Magic, Art, Science and RE.
Please do feel free to email me your work. I love to see it.
For your reading task today, I would like you to complete a reading comprehension. Today we are having a change from our Non-Fiction texts and reading a fairytale called 'The Enormous Turnip'. Read the text through carefully and then have a go at answering the questions. The answers will all be within the text so remember to go back to it when answering questions to check that you are right!
Once you have finished the questions, you can also find the answers below.
As I know how much you love your Number Magic, I have included another Number Magic for you to complete today. Complete this just as you would at school, choose your questions, Bronze, Silver or Gold and work out the answers for each of the five questions.
Remember don't do all 3 sections of questions - Choose either Bronze questions, Silver questions or Gold questions. You should only be doing 5 questions overall.
Make sure you use your bar models and number lines to help you, and if you have a ruler nearby, remember it also makes the perfect number line!
Over the next couple of weeks we are going to be making our own woodland animals from clay! How exciting! But before you make them, you need to decide which animal you would like to make and draw a design of your clay model. I will include a picture below of some woodland animals for you to choose from. Look through the photos carefully and decide which animal you would like to make. I will also include a picture below of some ready made clay woodland animals to help you with your ideas.
Once you have chosen the animal you would like to make. Complete the planning sheet below and sketch a design of what your model will look like. You will be making your model out of clay so try not to be too intricate with your designs.
The world is full of many different things. If you take a quick look around you, you'll notice that some of these things are alive, like birds and trees. Some of them were alive but are no longer living, like fallen leaves or the paper we make out of wood. Others have never been alive at all, like lamp posts or stones. But what is the difference between living and non-living things?
Today I would like you to investigate the difference between living and non-living things.
Use the PowerPoint below to help you.
Once you feel confident, have a go at the sorting activity.
Today I would like you to take the time to read a story called 'The Crying Camel'. It is an Islamic story which focuses on the importance of justice and caring for animals. I would like you to complete a similar task to the task you did on Friday in R.E and think about how we can learn from sacred texts. Write down two things that we can learn from the story of the Crying Camel and explain why.
Before you read the story, here are a few facts about Islam and its followers:
Place of Worship
The place of worship is a mosque. In the mosque there is one Qur'an and carpeted floors. Before you enter this place of worship you must remove your shoes. Every Friday a person will call on a loud speaker from the mosque. It is the "call to prayer" It is to remind people to come to the mosque.
Symbol of Islam
The symbol of Islam is the star and crescent. The crescent is there because the religion of Islam is based on the lunar calendar. The crescent also represents Islam because it marks the beginning of Ramadan.
In the most traditional Islamic countries/societies (Saudi Arabia and Iran), women wear black dresses that go down to the feet with black veils covering the entire face (except for the eyes). Men wear earth-toned tunics either in mosques or in everyday work. Out of religious circumstances women wear loose garments that are modest colours such as grey, blue, white, black and green.
