Class 3 w/c 4th May

How are you getting on with your PE? We all know that keeping active is so important and that recommendations say an hour of sweaty activity a day, and we also know that you’ve done lots – ball games, cycling, trampolining, running (we’ve seen lots of great photos) – but have you thought about dancing? If you’re a fan of shows like Strictly, how would you like to learn to dance like the stars? With this tutorial (click here), you too can learn the Lindy Hop? You could even be dancing it this weekend.

As well as doing the maths online try to set yourself puzzles and challenges. This week try planning a party (it could be a VE day party) – think about everything you would like and then find the costs (use online shopping sites). Imagine that you don’t have enough money, give yourself a new budget and then replan – make notes on how you are saving money and how much you save.


Using your Topic research, can you write a diary entry imagining that you were someone who experienced VE day? It could be from the point of view of a child, soldier or even one of England’s rulers. Before you start writing, make sure that you get into character – you could make a character chart, draw your character in the middle and add questions, thoughts and key words around the outside. Look at the youngest child in this photo – what do you think was going through her mind? What would a grown-up say to her?

Still thinking about Victory in Europe Day, can you make your own piece of VE Day art? It can be anthing from a fabulous pencil drawing, to a collage, painting or maybe you can make something from junk modelling or a temperary sculpture out of garden finds. Here’s some ideas below.

Following Boris Johnson’s 8pm announcement we now know that as of midnight tonight the country has entered a new period of Lockdown, a Lockdown that includes the closure of school. 

School will be open for the children of Key Workers and for pupils who are deemed vulnerable. All pupils will be provided with work in order for them to keep learning. 

Tonight’s announcement was very short notice for you as parents and also for us as a Staff. Tomorrow, by 11am there will be three tasks on the school website for each Class to complete as their Tuesday learning. However, School will be closed to ALL pupils tomorrow. 


Staff, however, will be in school preparing for the rest of the Lockdown. Through tomorrow we will prepare school to make it safe for Key worker pupils and vulnerable children to return. 

We will send out a form for you to apply for a place in the Keyworker Bubbles and we will let you know more about how children will be learning remotely. We will do our very best to re-open to Key Worker children and vulnerable pupils by Wednesday. 

I am aware of how difficult this is for you all, School closing creates a multitude of problems for everyone but data surrounding this awful disease dictates that this is a necessary step. As ever, the safety and health of everyone must be a priority. 

Thank you for your continued support and we will be in frequent contact over the next few days. 

Many thanks
