Spring Term

 We hope you are all managing with the current situation we find ourselves in.  As you know, we have now moved to online learning. The best place to find your child's school work is in the files section of our teams group. This will be updated daily with the correct resources. Each day will consist of some live meetings on teams and some independent activities. In the short term, we will continue to put the activities here on the class page in case you are struggling to access teams. Please let us know if that is the case.  If you do not have a printer or are struggling with computer access then you can also obtain a printed pack each week from the school office.

Many thanks,

Mr Branskey and Mrs Plummer


 As always if you have any questions please e-mail us using the class email addresses.


Home Learning Week Beginning 18th January  2021



This week we will carry out an investigation into odd and even numbers.  We will then look at working systematically to find all the numbers that can be added together to equal 8.  We will repeat this for other numbers up to 10.


This week we are looking at the story of Don't Hog the Hedge.  See below.



On Monday we are going to write about woodland creatures.

On Tuesday we will draw and describe Hattie the Hedgehog - the main character from the story.

On Wednesday we will sequence the story, remembering the main parts.
