We really hope that you and your families are all well and safe and enjoying your time together.
We would like to say a really big THANK YOU to all the children who have sent us their work to look at over the last few weeks. We love seeing everything you have been doing and thank you also to parents for all your support and encouragement.
As the `Easter holidays' draw to an end, we thought that we would send you a few more ideas of things you might want to use to `entertain' your children. We have included some creative activities along with some Maths and English tasks and also some links to online learning resources.
Hopefully many of you have been following Mr Shammas on his YouTube channel (Mr ShammasTeaches ) where he has entered into the spooky world of ghost stories.
Please encourage your children to continue following him on here and it would be great if you could keep submitting any work your children complete by emailing it to us at
For Maths, please continue to test your children on any times tables facts they are either unsure of, or indeed are not super speedy at! Hopefully they are also using the online learning resources they have access to, in order to practise their Maths skills too. Another website which has good interactive Maths games is Top Marks. Children could try the activities in either the 7-11 years category, the 11-14 years category, or indeed both!
Linked with the theme of spooky happenings in English, I have attached a PowerPoint containing some spooky Maths challenges for your child to try. A bit of fun, but challenging in places for sure! Mrs Hawkins has also prepared a few calculations for you to practise, no matter which maths group you are in!
If your child fancies drawing and trying something new, they could have a go at the draw-along videos created by Rob Biddulph. He has created 10 videos so far and posts new ones on his website every Tuesday and Thursday. They are really good fun, whatever your drawing ability, and the results are fantastic! He also says on this website that he'd love to see drawings created and explains how you could send them to him. Don't forget that we would love to see them too!
The last activity in this collection of work is a Geography one. If you click on the link below you can have a go at the `Countries of Europe' quiz on the Sporcle website. Make a note of how many you get the first time and see if you can improve your score each time you have a go. If possible, try to do this activity with someone else as it is good fun taking turns to think of a country!
Finally, please keep emailing Mrs Brown with your child's memory of primary school and their hopes and dreams for the future along with a photo of them. She will then forward them to me for me to add to the PowerPoint I am creating for the end of the academic year. The ones I have received so far have been fantastic!
Until next time, take care and stay safe.
Mrs Tomlins and Mr Shammas
