We've made it through to the Easter holidays!  We hope that you manage to enjoy these two weeks with your families safe at home.  We are launching our home learning and communication with families after the Easter holidays.  This will be through ClassDojo.  It can be accessed on a computer, IOS and android devices.  Please read the letter in the Letters to Parents and send  your email address to school.




Dear parents/carers,


In light of the news of school closures over the coming weeks, Mrs Routledge and Miss Holden have compiled a list of ideas to keep your children busy during this time. Please note that some of these ideas might not be achievable without resources and we don’t expect anyone to go out and source them.  In addition, we have sent out paper packs of work for each child and would appreciate where possible that these would be done for a short time daily- this will make them less onerous and will provide the child will somewhat of a routine during this difficult time.


Reading ideas


It is crucial that your child continues to read regularly and some websites are offering ebooks for free:…


Books linked to WWII: Friend or Foe, Diary of Anne Frank, Goodnight Mr Tom, War Boy, Letter from the Lighthouse, An Elephant in the Garden, Carrie’s War.


To learn, copy and illustrate the poem Flander's field. 




Continue to learn the Year 5 and 6 spelling words. These can be found in your child's journal or if you type them into google. 


Writing ideas


To write their own poem based on either the Blitz/evacuation etc


To watch the video piano or beyond the lines on Literacy shed and retell the story.




Practise your calculation methods regularly.

If any of the children have still not completed their one word homework ‘war’ they could continue or improve this.

We hope this list is a benefit to you. Mrs Routledge and Miss Holden would like to remind the children to stay safe, sensible, avoid gathering and wash their hands regularly. We would like to thank the children for all their hard work and thank parents/carers for their continued support.


Many thanks, 


Mrs Routledge and Miss Holden :)

Useful information for Parents

Planners need to be in school every day!


  • Spellings - handed out on a Monday and tested on a Monday. In addition the children will be tested each half term on 20 words from the Year 5/6 Spelling List
  • Topic - One word homework each half term. This needs to be quality and can be produced with adult support.
  • SATs revision homework will not be given at various times. 

Reading: The single, most important way you can help your child in Year Six is to read with them every day. Keep it short and enjoyable and discuss what has been read. Please record in your child's planner. 

PE: The children will need outdoor PE kit on Fridays and indoor PE kit on Mondays. Please ensure that the children's PE kits (both indoor and outdoor) are left in school throughout the term in case we change our PE days. Earrings MUST NOT be worn for PE.
