School Closure:

During this time, please try to build some home learning into your daily routines and include an outdoor activity where possible. Before school closed, we sent home Purple Mash and Time Table Rockstars logins, reading and spellings activities. We have now set many task to be completed on Purple Mash which should keep you busy. 

N.B. English and Maths Purple Mash tasks will now be set daily and a mini project will be assigned weekly.

Monday 6th - 10th July

Well done to all the children who completed our Purple Mash tasks last week  - You are all still doing a great job!

A big shout out to:

Is'Haac for being this week's  Purple Mash Star!  

As well as completing our online Purple Mash tasks, you can also visit Polar Bears'  Class Blog, where you can upload pictures of the home learning activities that you have completed and also share with your friends what you've been getting up to whilst school has been closed.

To create your own blog , you will need to click on the home button, then the tools button. There is a '2blog' icon on the right of the screen, click on this and follow the simple instructions on the 'How to' video. Happy blogging, Polar Bears!



Monday 6th - Friday 10th July :

Here is this week's exciting Science project on Space. Have a go at completing the fabulous tasks throughout the week...

Click on the PowerPoint and read through the presentation. Then complete the tasks and ask an adult to help you send pictures of your work to the school office so that we can upload it on to our class page. Have fun learning new and interesting facts! We can't wait to see your work... 

A story to read...

There has been lots going on in the world around us lately. Some of it good and some of it a bit worrying and sad. This story is all about how we can all be different but also the same.

'Same Same or Different'

For those of you who would like to have a go, we have also decided to share some educational activities which require less screen time. However, if you choose to carry out these tasks, you will need an adult to print them off for you. If you would prefer to continue with the Purple Mash tasks, that's fine too - you can choose. wink

Things to help you get organised:

Reading books can be changed each morning, as soon as the children arrive in school.

Monday -  Homework is sent home ( Magic Maths and Spellings). We also have outdoor PE.

Friday - Homework should be handed in, and tests are completed. We also have indoor PE.

Part of our homework is to read for a minimum of 3 times a week. However, we would love them to Strive for 5! 

Ways to help at home:

  • Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3,4 and 8 multiplication tables.
  • Practise spellings from the Year 3/4 statutory spelling list.
  • Challenge your child to complete Time Table Rock Stars, on a device at home, as often as possible.

We love to celebrate our achievements:

At the end of each school day, we always celebrate a child (Bear Of The Day) who has shown  respect, responsibility and resilience, throughout the day. The child gets to choose a Polar Bear to take home for the evening. We also have a Secret Learner, who receives a chocolate coin if they have displayed our 3 Rs.


Our English for this half term is based on the wonderful book:  'Seen But Not Heard'  by Katie May 

A truly original picture book full of atmosphere and magic that is perfect for children with wild imaginations. In a big old house, up creaky stairs, in a silent little nursery full of dolls and teddy bears, you'll find the children of Shiverhawk Hall.  They are children in pictures on the wall - seen and not heard. They all look so sweet and good, just like children should, but when night-time comes and there's no one to see, the children climb out from their guilded frames and run riot and they run free!
