Please watch this video from 5.50 minutes to 12.04 minutes. Also read pages 22 - 34 of the book. I would like you to write a letter home from a part of the journey you have read/ watched today - for example it might be after you've watched/ read the endurance lost part.

Here are some example letters. Remember this can be friendly and chatty - it must include emotions and personal thoughts - you are writing to someone you love back home. But you don't want to scare them!

 This term

Happy new year everyone, I hope you have enjoyed some family time and are looking forward to the new term.

This term we will be studying Shakleton and his adventures in literacy which I am hoping we will all enjoy. In topic we will look into extreme weather - which I know most the children were keen to explore more. 

Spellings will continue this term - both the common exception words and the spelling patterns. I will attached the spellings on here or class dojo for easy access this term. 

This week 


In maths we will looking at rounding increasingly larger numbers throughout the week. We will, as always, continue to practise our times tables on top of this. 

If you find yourself at home this week I will send through the Maths on class dojo. 


We will complete an independent write this week, on a topic of our choice. Alongside this will be spellings - including work with homophones, and punctuating direct speech. 

Again, if you are at home, please choose a genre and complete an independent piece of writing. See some ideas here. This can be self improved by using a dictionary, or adding more interesting vocabulary. This shouldn't be rushed and should be independent. 


Within topic (extreme earth) we will discuss, explore and learn about volcanoes. 

If you are at home please feel free, if you would like, to research and create a poster, or labelled diagram on volcanoes. 


We will be looking at 'our environment' under the larger branch of living things and their habitats.

We will choose an aspect (the water disappearance, its colour and position compared to Earth, or recent research carried out there) to write a newspaper report on. For anyone at home please research, plan and then write your newspaper report as we are at school. Extensions, if required, can include checking spellings using a dictionary or improving the language and making it more exciting using a thesaurus. 

ICT (Wednesday)

Research the planets to see what they all look like before we create them later in the week in topic. We will follow the techniques we covered last week in ICT for safe researching, whilst trying alternative search words to see the different results.

Welcome back! 

We are all so excited to be heading back to school this September. For almost all of you, you haven't been in school since we had to 'lockdown' at the end of March. Lockdown was a strange/challenging/fun time. I hope you have enjoyed a nice relaxing summer holidays and are ready to be back in school. 

Things within school have had to change slightly to make sure we are following the government guidance but I'm sure you will easily adapt to these small changes (lunches in classrooms, no assemblies, frequent hand washing to name a few of them) and fully immerse yourself into school life again. The first few weeks will be tiring for us all while we adjust to the new way of things. Please do not hesitate to email us if you have any questions or concerns about your child and school. 

To start the term we will be assessing the children's knowledge and understanding to enable us to fill any gaps that may have appeared since March. Your child has nothing to worry about, we will help and support them with their individual needs. 

Parents guide to the National Curriculum

Each day your child will need to bring in their book bag, water bottle, a waterproof coat and packed lunch (if they do not have hot dinners). They are not to bring in a rucksac (we are limiting the amount of items the children bring in from home).

On a TUESDAY and FRIDAY they must come to school wearing their PE kit. In colder weather they can wear navy blue or black tracksuit bottoms with their school PE t shirt and school jumper.

From the 2nd week of term, every TUESDAY, the Yr 4's will need to come to school dressed in their Forest School clothes as they will be doing their sessions on a TUESDAY afternoon. You will receive a letter about this. 

The children will be required to have their own pencil case and wellies in school all week.
