Hello lovely Cocoons. I was blown away with how well you are working at home! Keep it up!

The table below is this week's English and Maths, and the Topic grid is underneath. To access the links click on this document.

Thanks to Mr King for updating the times table tests document so it should be showing with the correct test header. Apologies!

I have created a Kahoot quiz - Two Truths and a Lie about the Romans - Click on the lie. Play before Friday at 3pm.
I have made a Padlet so the children can feel connected to each other... Share riddles and try to solve each others'.

Last week's link is still here if you would like to access it....

Rough timing suggestions are as follows:

Reading  45 mins, English (writing) 45 mins, Maths 1 hour, Topic 1hour 40 mins, PE /music activity 30 mins.

 Don't forget to read other books as normal, keep practising your times tables and use MyMaths games and Spelling Frame games to keep you busy. There are links to other useful websites if you scroll down.

Stay well and happy. I am at the other end of an email 9 -12 weekday mornings if you get stuck. Mrs P :-)

There is also a topic based grid below to work through based on the different subject areas of the curriculum. Please work from left to right - knowing to evaluating, treating each square as a lesson in a series of lessons by subject. PE links are below too!
