Home Learning


This week we will welcome some of you back to school.

Whilst it will be different to what we know, it will be great to spend some time in our classroom and see one another again before you move to Key Stage 2.

Some of you will continue their home learning at home whilst some of you will

continue to learn in our class for three days.

If you have any questions or need anything, please message me through Class Dojo.

Thank you as always, Miss Duong.


Monday 13th July 2020

We have dropped down to 4th place on the leaders board on Spelling Shed this week so log on.

Keep playing those spelling games.

Make sure that you are logging onto TTRS, Purple Mash and Rising Stars too. I have been giving out house points to those who have been logging onto their online apps.

All web links are listed towards the bottom of this home learning page. Thank you. Miss Duong

Class Dojo has been working well and allowed you to communicate with me directly.

I would like to say 'Thank you' to those who have messaged and shared work with me.

I have given house points out to those who have completed their 'to do's on their Portfolio and those

who have accessed their online apps.  Keep it up!

Thank you, as always. Miss Duong.

Please check this tab on a regular basis to see what home learning tasks need to be completed. I will add tasks to be completed for the week below, which will need to be completed in your green writing book or your yellow math book. There are plenty of links to check out below. Please check these regularly as I will be adding links to free resources and useful websites too.

I have also added the Spelling Shed, Times Table Rockstars, Pruple Mash and Rising Stars links below so that everything you need is in one place. Tasks will be assigned on these apps on a regular basis so please log on.

Please ensure that you are still reading, either your school book, online books assigned to you on Rising Stars or a book from your own book collection, every day. Please make sure that you are still recording these reads in your child's reading diary and I will go back and stamp your  records when your child is back at school.  Thank you. Miss Duong.

I have set up a school blog about our home learning journey on Purple Mash. On the home page, select the 'Sharing' tab, where you will find the 'Shared Blogs' section which contains the blog. It would be lovely to find out what you are all doing whilst the school is closed.
