Spring Term

We hope that you all had an enjoyable Christmas and a Happy New Year! We were really excited to start a new term with you all but unfortunately, due to the government's announcement, school will be shut for most pupils. The good news is that we have lots of lovely learning for you to do at home! Please keep checking the website to see what learning you need to do. We're looking forward to seeing your work!

Keep working hard and we hope to see you soon! 


Remember to tweet us to show us your home learning! @BarberRJS @RichardsRJS

If you need any support accessing or resourcing the home learning, please let us know. Most of the work can be completed without the need to print off worksheets and can be done on paper, if you prefer.

Additional home learning

Statistics challenge and square number challenge

In school, we often play Hit the Button to build up our speed and fluency of maths facts. Our top score in school is 30 - can you beat it? 

From this week the BBC are broadcasting 3 hours of learning each day for Y3-6 on CBBC between 9 -12. The timetable is below. Whilst this doesn't match our learning in school, it would be a useful alternative if you are having trouble accessing the online provision. The programmes are also available through iplayer. 



*Due to high demand nationally, some of online resources may be unavailable at certain times.  If you have difficulties, please complete a different piece of home learning - perhaps from another day and try again later.  Thank you.*
