If you, or your parents, have any questions, please email your questions to us at:

Keep well, keep safe and keep busy!

Best wishes

Mrs Day & Miss Goss



Easter Poems

Below you will find two poems written by Susannah White: one called 'Holy Saturday' and one called 'Easter Sunday'.

Read both poems and have a think about how each poem makes you feel. Which one do you prefer? And why?

You might like to complete the tasks at the end of each poem or just talk to an adult about the poems and the emotions they evoke in you.

Book Review of 'Goodnight Mister Tom'

We know you all enjoyed reading 'Goodnight Mister Tom' as our class book last term and now we'd like you to write a book review of the book.

Using the prompts below, write your book review in your home learning journals, on lined paper or your could write them straight onto the school blog if you prefer.

Remember to include:

  • name of the book
  • the author
  • the main themes/setting of the story
  • the characters you liked the best and why
  • the happiest part of the story
  • the saddest part of the story
  • explain how Tom's character changed in the story
  • explain how Willie's character changed in the story
  • how did reading the book make you feel?
  • would you recommend the book to others?
  • give the book a star rating out of 5

Your book review should encourage others to read the book so try not to give too much away. You don't want to spoil the ending for them!

You'll also find links below to a 'Goodnight Mister Tom' word search and crossword puzzle. Doing these first might remind you about the book and the characters.



Last week, you created a poster to highlight the importance of a healthy diet. This week we'd like you to think about the importance of regular exercise especially at the moment while we are spending the majority of our time indoors.

Do you do 'PE with Joe Wicks' every day? Do you go for a walk every day? Do you play in the garden? What other forms of exercise can you do at home?

Remember, you can't go and play football with your friends at the moment or go swimming, so you might have to think a little harder and be a little more creative.

Have a look at the NHS link below, to see how much exercise you should be doing as a young person, and then we would like you to design a weekly exercise program for yourselves. List the exercises you are going to do each day, how many and for how long. We will share the best ideas on the school blog. If you can, send photos of yourselves doing the exercises too!


DT - Playground Design Competition

Below is a link to a resource pack, full of activities for creating a new playground.

Complete the activities and return your entry to Miss Goss (email: to be in with a chance of winning a new playground worth more than £10,000 for our school.

All the information you need is included within the pack.

Closing date for entries is Wednesday 29th April.

Good luck and have fun!
