Kingfisher Story Time

Dear Kingfishers,

Working from home has certainly not been as fun as being in school with you all. I have particularly missed reading stories to you all, as I love to see your reactions to the stories we read, especially when they make you laugh.

I hope that you are still reading lots to your adults and that they can read to you too. Reading is such a great way to relax, take your mind of things and transport yourself to another world. Please carry on enjoying whichever books you enjoy.

Even though I can’t see you, I still want you enjoy hearing as many books as possible. As I read this book, I could imagine you all laughing and being annoyed by how s…l…o….w… the sloth is. I hope you enjoy hearing the story as much as I enjoyed reading it to you.

White Rose Maths (All Years)

Update 07/07/20: White Rose Maths have produced a range of work booklets for parents and children to use over the summer or during next year. These can be used to help your child retain their learning over the summer break, to support learning next term or to help you understand how maths will be taught for each topic next year.

They can be downloaded from this link:


Update 04/06/2020: Due to positive feedback from parents with regards to White Rose Maths, the school has purchased the subscription for this service.

This means that, from Monday next week (08/06/2020), your class teachers will make the worksheets available to you via the class blogs. These worksheets will link directly to the daily videos available on the White Rose Maths website.

If you wish to also complete the learning on BBC Bitesize, this will help your child to further understand the topic. However, please consider completing the WRM learning first if possible, as we believe this will provide the best learning for your child. This will enable children to have a consistent learning approach at home, as well as when they return to school.


Update 11/05/20: Unfortunately the WRM worksheets are no longer freely available. However, the lessons do now match up with the BBC Bitesize daily lessons. If possible, it may be best to use the WRM videos to help your child learn the concept for the day. Your child can then carry out the tasks available though the BBC Bitesize website.


Update 01/05/20: WRM lessons are now available for next week, including the videos and worksheets. We are pleased that some of you are finding these lessons so helpful. The freely available content is due to be less next week, so we will update you then with how best to use the resources.


Update 20/04/20: WRM have now created a 12-week plan to cover the whole of this term. This will allow us to carry on with some consistency once we return to school, so please carry on with these daily lessons.

However, there will be some changes to the resources that are available from week 3. If this means it is no longer practical for you at home, we will suggest an alterative for you. I believe the BBC bitesize content is going follow the same weekly topics, so they may be useful if needed.


Update 01/04/20: These lessons are continuing weekly. If you have missed a lesson or two, please go to these missed lessons before moving on, as they are designed to be done in sequence.


Original post: The people at White Rose Maths have put together a week-long series of maths lessons for all years, from Reception up to Year 6.

Once you follow the link, your child (or you) will be able to select their year group, watch a short video (around 4-5 minutes) and then complete a task. Ideally, the worksheets should be printed, but if not, your child can look at the worksheet and write the answers down on any paper you have available. The lessons even have the answers so you can quickly check them if you have time!

White Rose Maths (WRM) is a very well respected resource, and some of your children will already be familiar with it from school. We had already begun using this in class, and plan to use it across all year groups in the next school year, so it would be beneficial for your child to begin to become familiar with it in the coming weeks.

WRM plan to release a set of 5 lessons for the next few weeks, so it will hopefully help you and your children to have some consistency in these unusual circumstances.

This weeks lessons can now be found at:

The Digestive System

Swallow class had great fun recreating the digestive system using everyday items. We demonstrated the function of the teeth, process of swallowing, role of the stomach as well as the action of peristalsis.
