A very useful tick list to help you try and structure your day!

These are your spelling words for Friday 8th January. Remember you’ll have new words every Friday as you have been getting up until now. We test the children in school on a Friday morning before they get their new words to see how they are getting on. Try to do the same at home and let me know their scores! Good luck!

Spelling 8th January

Here are the Champion Challenges for Wednesday 6th to Friday 8th January.

CHALLENGES-FOR-Jan 6th 7th and 8th

This terms topic will be a Science based topic and once the class have decided which topic they would like to focus on, I will put the terms planning on here for you all to see! Remember to complete the Microsoft form to give your vote on what you would like the topic to be! Here is the link:

Fun Home Learning Activities for you to do with your Children

As another lockdown begins and we try to work out the best way to cope with creating a new routine for learning,  try out some of these fun ways to embed learning activities that won’t even feel like learning!


Baking provides many learning opportunities…and produces some delicious results too. Working through a simple recipe with your child will help develop measuring skills (Maths), following instructions (English) and can help them understand reversible and irreversible changes (Science).

Practical tip: Ask your child questions as you work through the recipe, such as ‘What do we need to do next?’, ‘How does our mixture look different now to before we added the flour/butter/sugar?’, ‘How much more flour do we need than sugar?’ As an added challenge, try doubling or halving the recipe too!


Planting seeds and watching them sprout and grow is always a rewarding activity to do with your children. And you don’t need a garden either; a few simple supplies are all you need to get you started. Pop some multi-purpose compost in a plant pot, plastic cup or old yogurt pot, sprinkle the seeds in and cover with compost.

Encourage your child to take responsibility for making sure the plant has enough water and sunlight, and challenge them to record what happens to the seed each day. They could take photos, measure the height to record in a graph, draw pictures or write updates. Keep them indoors as it’s a bit cold outside at the moment!

Practical tip: These plant seeds germinate and reach maturity quickly: mung beans (2-5 days), cress (3-7 days), lima beans (4-7 days), sprouting seeds (4-12 days), radishes (7-14 days), pumpkin (7-21 days). Lettuce, basil, chives, mint and parsley are also relatively easy to grow.

Keeping Active

Being less able to go outside and play with other children may mean that your child is less active than normal but there are lots of ways you can incorporate exercise into your new home learning routine.

YouTube is an endless source of great exercise and dance videos for your children. Try these to start with – there are plenty more!

  • Dance ‘n Beats has a wide selection of fun dance routines for younger children to enjoy.
  • Just Dance has a more challenging selection of videos for older children.
  • Cosmic Kids Yoga has a fun range of videos to guide your child through yoga sessions.
  • Jump Start Jonny has some fab free high-energy workouts on his website, plus a few on YouTube too.

Practical tip: Make sure children warm up and warm down before and after each workout session. Walking on the spot, arm swings or circles, jumping jacks, side hops and lunges are all good options.

Computer Coding

There are lots of free websites out there for children to help them understand how coding works. One of our favourites is Scratch. Children can program their own interactive stories, games and animations.

Practical tip: The main Scratch site is designed for children aged between 8 and 16 but there is also an easier version called ScratchJr for children between the ages of 5 and 7.
