In school this week, we would have been taking the children through the events of Holy Week from today which is Palm Sunday up to the events of the Last Supper and Good Friday.

Here are some resources which you may find useful if you want to talk to your children about this most special week as we approach Easter Sunday.


Holy Week in Two Minutes

This video explains the events of Holy Week quite simply for our children.

Can we remind you of our Home Learning activity linked to this:
Produce a poster or double page spread about the events of Holy Week.
Think about how you can present your work creatively using words and pictures to show the events which happened in the week before Easter Sunday.

Stations of the Cross for Children

This simple Powerpoint takes the children through the events of Good Friday.

Here is another activity which might be nice to do at this time too:
"Crosses of Hope"
The cross is not seen as the end of the story but a sign of the future and a sign of hope.

Design a cross which is bright and colourful. It may have prayers or words of hope on. You may be even more creative and make a cross from things you have at home.


If children do design crosses, please send them to the class emails.
We would love to see pictures of them and we could share them on the school website.



Let us pray:

May we feel the comfort of your love for us.
May we share that love with others
with the same generosity and gentle loving kindness
that you showed to all.



David Walliams is releasing a free audio story every day for the next 30 days. The link can be found below:


It is so important to keep reading and listening to stories during this time!


Please find above the home learning pack for Year 4/5.

This has been put together for the next 3 weeks at which point it will then be updated.

Obviously, you will appreciate that we do not know how this situation will progress and so we will keep things updated as best we can.


You will find daily English and Maths activities for your child and then a range of activities from the other subject areas for the 3 week period.

If you have any queries about home learning, please contact Miss Wilson from Monday to Friday on this email address: 


I will get back to you as soon as possible.

If you have any urgent enquiries please contact the school office.


I hope you all stay safe and well during this difficult time for everyone.

Kind regards,

Miss Wilson

This website has lots of free, fun games which can be used to support your child's learning in Phonics.



This is a website which the children use in school to support their learning.

This is a cross curricular website that enables children to explore and enhance their knowledge in a fun and creative way.


All pupils have a login which we will send out again this week. If your child is already off school, please contact school if you need your child's login. This site enables pupils to complete activities in a range of subjects through the apps available on their own homepage.


Should our school close for any length of time, teachers will set "2 dos" for the children to complete. Your children will be familiar with how to access and complete tasks in Purple Mash.





This website allows pupils to practise number bonds and general mental maths skills including times tables





 All pupils have a login for Times Tables rockstars and they can login at school or at home. If your child cannot remember their login, please contact your class teacher and they will let you know what this is. 

We are trying to ensure that all our pupils are fluent with the multiplication and division facts in order to increase their speed when calculating and problem solving and this is a fun was which engages our pupils in Maths activities.

Please click on the link below to access the TT Rockstars website.



The file below contains a bank of work which you can access for your children should you be in a self isolation situation at home.

There are a range of activities for your child's year group covering a range of subject areas. Some children may need to access work from another year group. All class pages have work available. Please contact your class teacher if you have any questions.


Should schools be closed for any length of time we would of course update and add work for your children to complete on a weekly basis.


Your child will receive an exercise book on Wednesday 17th March 2020 which can be used to complete this work. Work does not need to be printed off in order to complete it.


If you cannot access the school website please let us know.
