Well done! You’ve made it to the last week of home learning. As well as saying well done to all of the children, I’d really like to thank to all of the parents who have been delivering these activities over the last 12 weeks. It’s been lovely to see so many photographs and receive lots of brilliant work.

Notice for Parents:

 If you have still got a school library book at home, we would very much appreciate it if you would be able to return them to school in the next two weeks.

Also, we have collated all of the children’s books and work from the year ready to go home. These will be, or have been, sent home with the children who are attending school. If your child is not attending school, please feel free to collect them at any time over the next two weeks.


Thank you to the children who have been in school over the last two weeks. I hope you’ve had lots of fun. If you are in school this week, then have a look for the activities we will be doing in school and make sure to choose from the remaining ones when you are at home. Looking forward to seeing you!

  1. In school: Read the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears. Can you then pretend to be Goldilocks and write a letter to the bears to apologise for going into their home uninvited? Make sure you explain what you’ve done and how you know it was wrong. How can you make sure that you sound apologetic?


English Task 1

  1. In school: For this activity I would like you to respond to Goldilocks’ letter in two different ways. In one letter, can you forgive her and in the other, can you still be cross with her. Once you have written both letters, compare them. Have you used different words and different punctuation? Is the tone of each letter different? Is it clear how you feel without having to say it specifically?
