Welcome toHogarth Primary SchoolCONFIDENT

Class 6H- Mr Gosnell

Welcome to the Summer Term 2021


It has been wonderful to see the children return to school for the previous three weeks, following their remote (home) learning. I have uploaded our Summer Term topic web below so any research or pre learning on this after Easter will be very beneficial. The children have had a homework pack to catch up on for over the Easter Holidays based on Mathematics, Grammar and Punctuation.

DB Primary Platform

We will be providing homework for our pupils through the DB Primary platform. This can be accessed at:


The children will be required to use the username and password that was issued to them as part of their home learning pack at the end of the autumn term.

It is important that children keep their username and password safe and that they do not share it with friends or family.


Once your child has logged into DB Primary they will be able to see the homework tasks their teacher has set for them. It is an expectation that these tasks are completed so that every child can continue to make progress with their learning.


As part of the DB Primary platform, your child will be able to use a forum to keep in touch with their friends and teachers. Please discuss the safety implications of this with your child:

  • Anything your child puts onto DB Primary can be seen by members of staff.
  • Sensible behaviour must be used when accessing the blogs or forums
  • Make sure that any pictures you upload (profile picture, or pictures in posts) are suitable for a school audience
  • Be kind when leaving comments on other’s work
  • DBPrimary has an automatic profanity filter which is designed to block any inappropriate language, which also includes ambiguous words such as ‘hate’.
  • All messages can be reviewed, checked and traced to the sender.
  • Teachers can block the message sending option if they think it necessary.
  • Any inappropriate content can be reported to staff at the school by clicking on the whistle icon.


We hope that having access to DB Primary will be a helpful way in which you can support your child at home and that children can begin to take responsibility for furthering their own learning independently.

Important Reminders


School starts at 8:45 and ends at 14:45 with a 45 minute lunch at 12:00pm.


Please ensure you sanitize your hands on arrival into class and keep a social distance at all times. Make sure you have your own bottle of water otherwise your own personal cup will be provided.


Children should be as smart as possible with the correct footwear.


We have P.E. every Tuesday (Mr. Gosnell) and Wednesday (Mr. Moore). Please ensure your child has the correct, labelled kit and footwear in school and earrings are removed.


Homework and Spellings are given out on a Monday and are due back in school the following Friday. Please practise your spellings everyday.


Our topic 'People, Poets and Peace' covers WWI so any extra research on this will be very beneficial.


Please read with your child as often as possible at home and write a comment in their reading diary. Reading diaries will be collected every Friday where children should have at least three signatures from home. Daily reading with an adult can increase their enthusiasm, fluency and expression and help them progress even further. Encourage your child to read a Non-Fiction book once a week.



Multiplication Tables 

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: and I will do my best to email you back as quickly as I can. Thank you, Mrs Peacock.
