Monday 22nd Nov

Today, I am poorly, but maybe by the time Monday arrives some of you will sadly be at home too.

All learning, for home-learners, as well as in-class learners, will be found on this page.

I hope to be back at school very soon. Keep healthy or get well soon everybody!


If you are at home:

Are you ready to learn?

Have you had your breakfast, washed your hands and brushed your teeth?

Go to the bathroom and after that get yourself a drink.

Make sure you have pen and paper, possibly a dictionary to hand if you have one at home, and now do your home register! wink Is everybody there? smiley

Are you ready to learn?

Let's begin!


ALL: Read your current school reading book for 20 minutes.


Then begin our new class text: Goodnight Mr Tom (see link below for home learners, if you do not have a copy of the book - in class we have a class set of books, but you may prefer to use an IWB version for whole class teaching).



Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian Age 9-11

Reasons for selection and synopsis

Young Willie Beech is evacuated to the country as Britain stands on the brink of the Second World War.

A sad, deprived child, he slowly begins to flourish under the care of old Tom Oakley - but his new-found happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back in London . . .
