Friday is spelling test day. Hopefully, you’ve used spelling frame to practise your spellings following the i before e rule this week. When you log in to Spelling Frame, you will see an active tests option. Please click into there and complete your spelling test. This way your results will be sent directly to your teacher and we can see your hard work. The practise mode is still available so maybe practise on that mode beforehand to make sure you feel confident.

New Spelling Rule – rule 54. These words are taken directly from the Y5/6 spelling list so you will have seen some of them last year but practise makes perfect. Use your spelling frame account throughout the week to practise these words before completing the test next Friday.

Mental Maths


Look at the examples of George Seurat’s pointillism art work. Thinking about the clip from last week can you create your own version of one of his piece s using the pointillism technique. At school, we would dedicate several lessons to this piece of work so please don’t rush. You can take the next few Fridays to work on this and it would be lovely to see pictures of your work in progress.


Fridays are PE day! It’s time to get up and get moving.
YouTube is a great place to find suitable at home work P.E sessions such as Joe Wicks or Go Noodle. Our next block in P.E was scheduled to be dance. Why not try one of the dance sessions on Strictly Come Dancing star Oti’s YouTube channel.
