You will also find all the tasks in the google classroom:


In google classroom, you can send us pictures of your work or any word / google documents you might create.  We look forward to seeing some.

If you find that you haven't been assigned your maths work in google classroom, let me know - I might have missed your name.


In addition to the above, here are a few suggestions for some other things you might like to do this week.


Make a wordsearch

Scavenger Hunt

Have a go at making a wordsearch for someone on your family to complete. 

  1. Draw yourself a grid of squares on a piece of paper

  2. Fill in the words you want to be found (and write a list of them at the bottom of the page)

  3. Fill in the blank spaces with random letters

  4. Give your wordsearch to someone else – how long does it take them to find all the words?

Your wordsearch could be on a theme – holidays, animals, things found in the garden… be creative!

In your garden or a safe outdoor space collect as many of the following in your tub/bowl as you can:

  • Something wet

  • Something noisy

  • Something old

  • Something heavy

  • Something shiny

  • Something dry

  • Something quiet

  • Something new

  • Something light

  • Something dark

  • Something you would like to keep

  • Something that can blow in the wind

  • Something you have never seen before

  • Something that smells nice

  • Something beautiful

  • Five shades of green

With the scavenged items, can you create a sculpture or picture? Can you invent a new species of creature? Or replicate a beautiful landscape you have seen?

Art from Mrs Milne

Science from Mrs Arnold

We were so thrilled to see all the fabulous rainbow pictures that so many of you sent in at the start of our stay-at-home experience.  This week, Mrs Milne will be suggesting a way to re-visit this theme to create a 3D version for your windowsill. Check the Art@Home blog post for more details.

Plastic milk!

Make plastic out of these simple ingredients: milk, vinegar and you will also need a sieve! 

Visit the school blog on the 20th April for the full instructions.
