Photography Competition


Mrs Addison has invited us to take part in a competition this week to take part in a photography competition titled 'Our Changing World.'

Once you have taken your photo, please email it to either the class email, or to Mrs Addison at

or enter yourselves online by following the link below. 


Remember, this is a competition, you could be in with the chance to win £500!



This week, the children need to write a poem based on their experiences of the Seaside! 


This might have been something you have done during lockdown, or a memories from previous summers that the children can draw on their own experiences. 


Use the Parent Teaching Notes to support you in guiding your child through this task. 


It will also be useful for them to listen to the chapters from the Malamander being read on Class Dojo stories!



This week's reading task involves dissecting a song again! This time, it is Under the Sea from The Little Mermaid. 


Follow the YouTube link to watch the video. Print the Powerpoint as a 3 slide handout, then you get the lines on the right hand side to answer the questions. Or alternatively, write the answers into your exercise book!




This week, the children will continue their work on Position and Direction using shapes on a grid, but thinking about the direction objects can move in. 


They will need to know their compass points and confidently use the following vocabulary to describe the direction and object moves in:

  • left/right
  • up/down
  • diagonal
  • horizontal/vertical
  • clockwise/anti-clockwise
  • North/East/South/West


There are two lessons from the Oak Class Academy, which you can do digitally. I've also attached a teaching powerpoint and some activities that the children can complete, as well as some interactive games. As always, Sumdog will have a challenge. Only Year 4 have some Power Maths pages to complete this week! 

Power Maths Book C - Pages 138 - 143

You could also download the BeeBot App for Free on Apple Devices. This supports the children in programming a robot to follow specific directions.

These tasks will help children understand and explore what wellbeing is, how kindness to others and self-kindness impacts wellbeing and the positive impact support networks have on wellbeing. Use the individual activities and times of reflection and to help children to reflect on their own wellbeing, how kind they are to themselves, how kind they are to others, how to show self-gratitude, how to plan for the future in a positive way and how to reach out to their support network.
