Work for Pupils at Home

Please upload your work to Class Dojo (either by uploading a photo or typing directly). I have sent login details out to parents so that you can access your portfolio to upload your work. I will be looking at the uploaded work, giving feedback and awarding house points. If you haven't uploaded any work to the portfolio (or sent it through Class Dojo messages), then I will be ringing to check in.

Each day, I will be adding to this work an online video of me teaching.

I’ve created a grid of activities relating to the big question: “How can we help planet Earth?” There’s no expectation that you have to complete these tasks, but I thought it would be good to have some extra activities for you all to do if either you finish your work for the day quickly, or if the weather is rubbish and you can’t go outside, or if you just want something different to do!

I've also uploaded a handwriting booklet that I would like the children to work through. There are quite a lot of pages in the booklet, so I am happy to print off copies at school for the children to have. Please let me know via Class Dojo if you would like a printed copy.

Please remember that English work needs to be completed in pen (joined up handwriting) and maths work needs to be completed in pencil.

If you have any questions about any of the work, please send me a message on Class Dojo.
