'A love of learning for life in all its fullness'


Good morning everyone


I've picked an appropriately wet-weathered tune for our song of the day this morning - hope it inspires you to put your wellies on and have a little dance in the puddles. 

Remember that our zoom kahoot meeting will be at the different slot of 9.30am tomorrow morning and it will be a KS2 science quiz.   


As usual, there are two different platforms that you can choose between to find your Maths and English lessons each morning.  Please pick the one that suits you best:


Oak Academy Lessons

For those who would like to keep going with Oak Academy, the link to their classroom is here. 

If you had difficulty navigating this site or loading the resources, just drop me an email or call the school for a chat.  I could arrange a video tutorial.

Select your year group, then 'Schedule'.   I suggest you pick the English and Maths lessons each day.  Feel free to have a look at the other lessons as well, although please leave them out if they prove a little too much as I usually add details of another lesson each day as well (little bit of something else).

You'll also notice there are buttons to click through to weekly assemblies and activity clubs.  These often feature some famous faces!



For those who like to keep going with the BBC's bitesize, 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.



A little bit of something else

We've been learning about tsunamis.  To help you to understand just how terrifying it could be to get caught up in a tsunami, watch this trailer to the film The Impossible. (Warning, watch with a parent, it's a 12A and quite emotional).


Now I'd like you to have a look at a wonderful piece of art showing a tsunami wave from Japan - it's at the bottom of this page.  It's called 'The Great Wave' and it's by a man called Hokusai.   You can read more about it here.  It was painted in about 1830 on a wood brick.  Can you see Mount Fuji in the background?

I'd like you to watch this video on how to draw The Great Wave.  The artist has broken it down into 19 steps and I know they've made it look easy (I'm sure it's not!!) but would you like to have a try?  Please do send in any pictures of your art for us to display in the Hall of Fame.
