This week (13.7.20) for Maths, as something a little bit different, see if you can bring in your measurement, time and money skills by designing a garden party. Give yourself a budget and plan what you will need food-wise, drink-wise and decorations-wise. See if you can come up with a guest list and a seating plan, plus a time schedule of what will happen at each point. 

Good luck!

Purple Mash

There has been work set on Purple Mash for you to keep up to date with. Please log into your Purple Mash using the link below:


*Please ensure you save any work you do on Purple Mash into the 3NB or 3SF folder, depending on which class you are in. The save icon is in the top left hand corner of most 2Dos. 


See if you can have a go at sending Mr Bland or Mrs Field an email with an attachment in - simply go into the 2email app and click compose, then, when you've finished writing the email, click attach and attach a piece of saved work from your Purple Mash. This is a good way of keeping fresh in your memory what we've been learning about regarding email, but also it's a good way to contact others. Feel free to send (kind and respectful) emails to each other as well.



Our Summer Science topic is all about Forces.  What forces do you know?  Can you draw a picture of different forces? Can you find out their scientific names?  

There is lots on information on forces on the BBC website, which you can access here:

And there's also a wealth of information on DK Find Out:



We have been learning about the Ancient Greeks and their legacy (what they have done for us) in our History. See if you can research about Ancient Greek theatre, sports and buildings. DK Find Out, mysteries in time and National Geographic Kids have some great information:


  • Can you put the information you find out into a fact sheet? This could take the form of a general Ancient Greek fact file or, alternatively, you could write a fact file for each of the parts of Ancient Greek life - religion, clothes, buildings, theatre, sport and family life. 
  • Can you make a design for what a  Stone Age, Bronze Age or Iron Age settlement would be like?



It's important to try and  stay active at this time so here are a couple of websites to help with that.  PE Passport, which we use in school, has put some mini PE lessons online and Joe Wicks (the Body Coach) is doing a live workout at 9.00am each day.



Singing makes everyone feel better doesn't it?! Have a go at these songs to boost your mood this week.  You could even send us a video via email of you singing your favourite!!

Well done to Ellie, who did this fantastic bunting colouring to celebrate VE day, which is on Friday 8th May. Fantastic!
