As this would have been our two week Easter break, I would like you all to have a nice break away from your learning packs and enjoy some quality time with your family at home. I miss you all very much and hope you are all well and keeping safe.
Please visit our page regularly to find new and exciting learning opportunities. I will be adding lots of new things so keep visiting our page. Have fun learning with your families and stay well!
From Miss Bowley
Here are some Easter activities which you can do at home:
- Design a vehicle that can transport a hard boiled egg safely from one point to another.
- Design a device that will protect a hard boiled egg when it is dropped from a height.
- Design some packaging for a new Easter egg.
- Create an advert to promote a new Easter egg. This could be for a poster / billboard, a digital display advert or an advert for radio / television / cinema.
- Write the Easter bunny's diary entry about his / her disastrous day delivering the eggs.
- Write a recipe for a delicious Easter treat... or try following a recipe to make your own!
- Design an Easter basket that can carry your Easter treats!
- Make a comic strip or an animation with an Easter theme.
Over the next few weeks we would have been learning about Fractions, Decimals and Percentages. In the pack you were provided with you will find a range of questions that relate to these topics. Parent, please encourage your child to challenge themselves by completing sections B or C. If these are too tricky, try section A and then move on to other sections once they feel confident.
Please continue to practice your times tables. See the website links at the bottom of this page to help support your learning at home.
Here are some targets we have been working towards:
- Compare and order fractions whose denominators are all multiples of the same number
- Identify, name and write equivalent fractions of a given fraction, represented visually, including tenths and hundredths
- Recognise mixed numbers and improper fractions and convert from one form to the other and write mathematical statements > 1 as a mixed number [for example, 2/5 + 4/5 = 6/5 = 1 1/5]
- Add and subtract fractions with the same denominator, and denominators that are multiples of the same number
- Multiply proper fractions and mixed numbers by whole numbers, supported by materials and diagrams
- Read and write decimal numbers as fractions [for example, 0.71 = 71/100]
Practice Year 5 /6 spellings making sure you apply the rules we have been learning at school.
In your packs I have enclosed numerous reading comprehension tasks that focus on inference and deduction. Please ensure you answer the questions in full sentences using evidence from the text.
Continue to read often and record this in your diaries.
We have been working towards these National Curriculum statements:
- use further prefixes and suffixes and understand the guidance for adding them
- spell some words with ‘silent’ letters [for example, knight, psalm, solemn]
- continue to distinguish between homophones and other words which are often confused
- identifying the audience for and purpose of the writing, selecting the appropriate form and using other similar writing as models for their own
- noting and developing initial ideas, drawing on reading and research where necessary
- in writing narratives, considering how authors have developed characters and settings in what pupils have read, listened to or seen performed
- selecting appropriate grammar and vocabulary, understanding how such choices can change and enhance meaning
- in narratives, describing settings, characters and atmosphere and integrating dialogue to convey character and advance the action
- writing longer passages
- using a wide range of devices to build cohesion within and across paragraphs (use of conjunctions and sentence structures to develop fluency).
?? Our Big Question ??
We will have a 'big question' each week to get us thinking! Explain what you think the answer may be to your family and carers. Why do you think this? Can you use the subordinating conjunctions we have been learning in class to explain why you think this e.g. 'because', 'as', 'but'. Can you think of examples to support your answers?
'If you could heal the world, where would you start?'
Can you work out this riddle? What could you be? why do you think this?
'What kind of tree can you carry in your hand? '
Task of the Week
Each week, I will upload a link that will show you a picture/short video clip. Use the information on the page to discuss the picture and have a go at writing your own stories or short 'Three Minute Wonders'.

There are lots of simple and fun things you can do at home to learn more in science. Here are examples of different experiments you can at home. Each week, pick an experiment for the things you have at home. Make sure we work with an adult. There are lots of practical experiments on Twinkl under 'awe and wonder'
Healthy Body, Healthy Mind
There are lots of exercises you can do in your home! Here are some daily workout videos you can use.
BBC Super movers Daily exercise videos
Joe Wicks Daily PE workouts
Develop your understanding of equivalent fractions by playing the 'Matching Fractions' game from the nRich website. Please click on the link that I have added below.
I have added some tests that you can use to help you to remember your times tables. Please look at the link below. If you do not have a printer at home, you could write down your calculations on paper.
If you have any maths related queries that I can help you with, please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will do my best to email you back as quickly as I can. Thank you, Mrs Peacock.
Hello to my Hogarth music lovers!

Below you will find all of the relevant information about our school day. Please keep visiting our page to see what we have been doing over the course of the academic year.
We have P.E. every Wednesday and Thursday. Please ensure your child has the correct, labelled kit in school and earrings are removed.
Homework and spellings are given out on a Friday. Homework is due back in school the following Wednesday, spellings will also be tested on Friday. If any homework is incomplete, children will be expected to attend homework 'Catch up Club' held on a Thursday break time.
Please read with your child at least three times a week at home and write a comment in their reading diary. Daily practice with an adult will increase their enthusiasm and help them progress even further. We will be collecting the reading diaries in each Wednesday to keep a track of this.
Please see below some useful resources to help with your childs learning:
