Tuesday 12th January
         Class 4

Morning all! I hope you're all doing ok? I will be doing two Teams calls again today; you all managed to join yesterday so well done, and please follow the same method today. You will need a piece of paper and a pen or pencil during the call. I look forward to seeing you all later. smiley

enlightenedToday looks like...
English - carrying on with the biography unit.
Maths - adding and subtracting fractions- please send this work to me (via email at or upload it to Teams in the 'files' section).
1pm Teams call for Year 6.
1.30pm Teams call for Year 5.
Computing- first lesson in the spreadsheet unit.

 Don't forget that you need to do 30 minutes reading today and some physical exercise too. Look at the home learning tab for information about both of these. Remember, you can do these activities at any point during the day. 

 Don't forget to practise your spellings every day. We will do a test on Friday over Teams. 
 Remember to look at the daily Collective Worship. You can find it under the News & Events tab on the website, under School News. 

9am Sing up are running free live singing sessions on Tuesdays with a #feelgoodfifteen minutes of singing and musical fun to wake everyone up and get them ready to for a day of learning. If this is something that you would be interested in then follow the below link:

Your lessons for today are...


We are continuing our unit about biographies of inspirational figures today. Yesterday, you started to find out about and research into Harriet Tubman's life; today you're moving another step closer to writing a biography. 

Your learning intention for today's lesson is: To develop a rich understanding of words associated with being hard-working. 

Click on the link below and it will take you to the lesson. Remember, you can pause the video at any time to allow you to do the activities. 

These are the answers from yesterday's lesson:

  -What-is-a-fraction answers 11.01.21.pdf-  



Today, we are going to continue to look at adding and subtracting fractions. This will be our last lesson on it before we move onto multiplying fractions. 
Here is the video to watch...

Here are today's activities...
Year 6 

Year 5

Here is the other activity for today, if the above seem too tricky - give this a go! 
  -Equivalent-fractions-1- 12.01.21.pdf-  

Please send me your maths work today; I would love to see it. 



We are going to have a go at doing a computing unit from home. The unit we're going to do it about spreadsheets. 

I have attached a powerpoint below which talks you through the lesson. Once again, you will need to click on the volume symbol on the slides to hear my instructions. 

  -Spreadsheets 1 12.01.21.pptx-  

When you have completed the powerpoint, you will need the activity sheet below. I have explained what to do on the last slide of the powerpoint. 

  -Activity Sheet Number Operations.pdf-  

You will need 2 spreadsheet documents for this lesson. They are called 'cells and data' and 'number operations'. I have saved these on teams. They are under files, then computing resources, then 12.01.21 spreadsheets. I can show you how to find these during our Teams call this afternoon if you're struggling to find them.

Have a great day, and I'll see you all this afternoon. Mrs Barker smileyx
