Our School will not be going where the path may lead, but will go instead where there is no path and leave a trail

It is the Easter Holidays! You are welcome to still complete these activities should you wish but I don't expect you to. Have a lovely Easter - Mrs Hayes

Here is an example timetable of how you could organise learning from home:

Our RE topic was looking at the importance of the resurrection for Christians.  Remind yourself of the Easter story here.

What do you think about this statement 'Easter is more important than Christmas to Christians'. Do you agree? Do you disagree? What arguments could their be on either side?

Decorate a cross, this will be a competition and the winning design will be made from wood and put on display. There is a template here.

Link with School in Guiyang China

We have a link with the Prime Academy school in Guiyang, China. The pupils there are also learning from home. It helps their English to practise speaking, listening and reading it.

Some members of Oak Class made some videos asking the pupils of Prime Academy some questions. Prime pupils have answered one of the questions - what food they eat! They have sent pictures and explanations of their typical meals. Have a look and see how similar they are to yours.

Click here to download the pictures and their descriptions with some questions for you to think about. 

Prime pupils would love to see some typical English meals. Can you take photos and describe your typical day's food to show them? Upload to Seesaw or email to Mrs Hayes. 

WORK OF THE WEEK! Friday 3rd April 

Well done to all of Oak for tremendous work showing great effort this week. I have been particularly impressed with the following three:

Archie's science experiment into forces

Alice's character description. Who is she describing?

Lucia's tour of the Roman baths. 

Year 6s

You are not sitting the SATs anymore, yet the revision guides and tests are a good way of making sure you are confident with all of the primary school curriculum before you go off to secondary school

Revise your iffy areas. Use your revision guides and Mrs Hayes’ revision booklets. 

Have a go at some past SATs papers:
