We've got to the end of another lock-down school week. Thank you all for joining in at home and sending in your bits and pieces to show me. Keep up the good work and keep smiling! We can do a Zoom meeting with a little quiz later today if you like - how about 4pm? I'll send an email.
Please follow Friday's lessons for Maths and English only through the TV channel AND by visiting the links for the day's lessons. If you are worried that you are unable to follow BBC Bitesize because you don't have a TV licence, please email me and I will provide a tutorial on using the government's Oak Academy home learning website.
The week's lessons, which have been split into days and age ranges, can be seen here

Daily lessons are here! Follow the link to open up the full menu of age-appropriate daily lessons. Each lesson is backed by a range of fun videos, games and activities. You can continue to use your home learning exercise books and maths books to write in. The links below take you straight to your year group for today.
Little bit of something else - HISTORY
The History of the Railways

Now you'll need to visit this link. It should open a file of documents. Open the powerpoint - it's the class lesson. Read through it carefully and discuss with someone at home. There's a nice activity on there for you to design a poster.
There are also some reading comprehension activity sheets under 'resources'. 1star is easiest, 3stars are hardest. If you're not able to print-out, don't worry, just have a look through. The answers are there as well.
There's quite a lot of work on here - you can spread it out over the week, or just pick out bits that interest you the most. Don't worry if you don't cover everything.
How many of you have tried to make Stephenson's Rocket by junk-modelling at home?
William has made a fabulous model. You can see the pictures in the Hall of Fame. Well done - and thanks for supporting Dad!
You'll also see some videos that April has made about steam power - they're worth checking out because they help to explain how the power for these enormously heavy machines was created.
