Something new to do or explore


I would like you to focus on handwriting over the next while. Please find the link below for Part 2.


Discovery Education

I hope you have all logged onto Discovery Education. If not and you are having difficulties, please email the school and the message will be passed on to me. I will get back to you with a solution as soon as I can.

On the front of the learning pack you received, there was a username and password for a resource called ‘Discovery Education’. On Discovery Education you will find lots of different resources to support your child’s learning. Check out the section ‘Espresso’ – ‘KS2’.

I hope you have been able to log into Discovery Education. Today, I would like you to do the following activity.


Once in the section KS2, please go to ‘Maths – ‘Addition and Subtraction Lower’ – ‘Activities’.

Once in activities you will find lots of different activities you can look through and do. Choose ones that are suitable for you. Explore and have fun.



Things to continue with

Top Marks

If you click on one of the four operations (+ – X ÷), it will bring you to a screen with lots of different activities. You can then choose for yourself the level of challenge you wish to have.

Mental Maths Train is a maths game which focuses on the essential vocabulary of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. It can help children to understand what type of calculation they have to do when faced with word problems.

It is a multiple choice game that is suitable for children from 5 to 11 years of age. Mental Maths Train is also good for consolidation of times tables knowledge.

For the best experience press the full-screen icon in the top right corner of the game. As with all of our games, Mental Maths Train is tablet friendly and it works well on an interactive whiteboard.


Times Tables

Keep learning your times tables. All the hard work is paying off!!! (



The next area of science we will be looking at is light and shadow.

The link provided will allow you to find a set of questions to base some research around. This can be done as an online activity or by setting up a real world experience. What shadows do you see in and around your home? Can you draw them or take pictures of them?


Bug Club

Keep going with Bug Club. I have updated everyone’s Bug Club account. Your login details are in the front of your home and school contact books on page, Wc 30th September 2019. I will be allocating activities on Bug Club for you to complete over the next while.


Have a great day.
