Hello Owls,


How are you? I hope you have been able to enjoy the lovely sunny weather.


This week, the English activities have been adapted from the scheme that we follow in school called Talk 4 Writing. You can look at their website and other year group resources here


As a reminder here are the websites that you have logins for and can go on at any time. If you need any of the logins, let me know and I can email them across.

  • Purple Mash – this is a website which I may set work through. It also has lots of games to practise lots of different skills. It also has lots of arty apps such as paint, creating a 3D net or creating an animation.
  • Feed the Monster – this is available on iPads, computers and phones. It is a fun level-based game where children are able to practice their sounds. This will help with their reading.
  • Times Table Rock Stars – this helps with children learning their times tables. It has now been set so children can practise the 2, 5, 10 and 3 times tables. Children first need to complete a baseline assessment where they will be asked to answer questions from all the times tables. This can be done by clicking on ‘Gig’. From there, questions are personalised in the ‘Garage’ or ‘Arena’ section. Times Table Rock Stars recommends playing 3-4 times a week for 5-10 minutes.
  • Sumdog – Sumdog can be played online or on your phone or tablet. It creates personalised questions on Maths, spelling and grammar. There are a variety of games.
  • Numbots – Numbots is a new suggested site. You do not need a new login for this, it is the same as your Rock Star account. You do need to access it through a different website however. Numbots is another level based game. Children need to score a certain amount to proceed to the next level. It tests children on their number skills. It suggests children play 3-4 times a week for around 5-10 minutes for children to fully benefit.
  • Nessie – Nessie is a personalised website which allows children to practice areas in reading, writing, spelling, Maths and typing. You do not have a login to this. If you would like a login, please let us know.


Please keep sending in photos of your amazing work! I was sent some fantastic pieces last week, well done guys!


Stay safe

Today we are going to read a new story. It is called ‘The Elves and the Shoemaker’. It is a traditional tale. Do you know what a traditional story is? Can you think of any more?
