Good morning 4OM and happy Friday!

Thank you so much for continuing to send in all of your wonderful work. It really has been a pleasure reading all of your legends and I am so impressed with your use of description, your variety of fronted adverbials and clever use of speech to move the stories on. Samuel has really got the writing bug - as well as writing his legend, he has started writing his own story, 'The Time Machine'. Have a read of this below. Hopefully he'll send in the next instalment soon! You can also have a read of Freya's fantastic legend. What amazing description! My favourite line is 'Then out of the fog a shadow approached them'. It adds so much mystery. You can also see some photos of Isla and Sienna below. Isla's workstation looks so serene and peaceful! Such a smiley photo of Sienna!

I hope you're all looking forward to a restful weekend. It's pizza Friday in my house so I'm excited about that!

Missing you all very much.

Hello again everyone!

I hope you've all managed to settle into a routine with your home learning? Email in and let us know what is working well for you. Isla has told us that she's finding the suggested timetable and the videos really helpful which is great to hear. Remember to make sure you're scheduling in regular breaks and exercise too.

Lots of you have been working hard and emailing in with your work - well done! Max sent in his super Geography powerpoint which you can view below. Efe has been emailing in his legend each day and what has really impressed me is that he took on board the advice I gave him in an email on Tuesday about trying to put the reporting clause (the part that tells you who is speaking- said, exclaimed etc) after the direct speech. You can see that he has done this for some of his direct speech in Wednesday's writing below. Well done Efe!

Have a super day 4OM - I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Good morning 4OM,

How is your home-learning going so far today? I'd love to hear from you! Odile has sent in some of the work she did yesterday. Have a read of her AMAZING story so far. What fantastic description and vocabulary she's used!  I'll post some more pictures as I receive them later on in the day. For now - keep going! I know that you're all working really hard!

Miss O'Leary

Here is Sienna's legend so far. Again, some wonderful vocabulary (aggressive, vicious) and some good fronted adverbials.

Hello 4OM,

Its the end of another day of home learning and it was wonderful to have work sent to me by Efe, Sienna  and Olivia. Thank you too to Jesse-Lee who has ben working on his maths and sent it to me too. I would really like it if you ALL sent me some of what you are doing - I know you are all out there trying your best! All you need to do is get a parent (or maybe you) to take a picture of your work, or a picture or video of you doing it and email it to me on my email and Miss O'Leary on

Looking forward to hearing from you all tomorrow!


Olivia's legend is coming along really well
I love the concentration on Jesse Lees's face. Keep it up!


Hello 4OM!

Miss O'Leary here. I hope you're all enjoying a productive day of home learning. I've posted a little message to say hello below. I can't wait to see some more of your wonderful work so email in to myself or Miss Monger when you get the chance.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!

Hello home learners!

Welcome to the first full week of lockdown learning. We have changed where you find the work to make it easier, especially if you are using a mobile phone.I also wrote you a timetable so you can plan your day. It has been super busy at school today getting the learning ready for you at home and the children that are in.

I have had some lovely emails in from Freya who had made a very professional looking powerpoint about the Vikings, Max who had read an entire book and realised it was not on AR (Don't worry about that - just read whatever you have that is right for you, Sienna DB who had done so much work carefully cutting and sticking the tasks into her home learning book so neatly and organised that it was a total joy, and Odile who had completed lots of maths and English and had written up a very scientific report with photos all about ice linking to our States of Matter topic. Efe has also been on the home learning and is completing some maths and English. Great stuff.

If you haven't been in touch yet, please send me an email and let me know how you are getting on. I would love to see pictures of your work station! If you need me to explain the task, or extra resources, I can get them for you. Just let me know. I am here to help you.
