Witchampton CofE First School

Home Learning

Friday 27th March 2020

Dear Foxes class, all 27 of you - Hello! It’s Mrs Green here. I just wanted to pop on here and send you a little message and see how you are all getting on. It is Friday today and I know we all look forward to Golden Time on a Friday afternoon, so I wonder if you can spend half an hour this afternoon doing something fun at home! I know you are all really imaginative and creative so you’ll have to tell me your Golden Time ideas when we are back at school.


It’s been a strange week hasn’t it? I have been thinking of you all every day. Firstly, I hope you and your families are safe and well. Secondly, I hope you have been finding some fresh air each day and spending time doing things you enjoy. Thirdly, what have you taught your families about rivers, fronted adverbials and multiplication, I wonder! I am really looking forward to hearing what you have been up to - have you drawn an Island for the English task? Have you tried to knit this week? Have you made a reward chart at home? Have you challenged me to a Rock Slam on TTRS? (Actually, only one of you did but I would love to have some more!). Have you tried sowing some potatoes? Have you been making creations with Lego, sketching and colouring or reading your books? The answers may be yes or they may be no. That’s ok - we are all unique and our time with our families is too.


The Home Learning Tasks should be enough to keep you busy for next week too. You do not have to do every task on there but what you can do will really help you. 

  • School work is for weekdays not weekends.

  • If you have finished your reading book, then you may be interested to hear that David Walliams (who wrote The Ice Monster that we read in class) is releasing one of his short stories to listen to every day until the 23rd April. Ask a grown up to help you find it online here if you can: 

  • If you can’t remember some of our Maths methods then follow the videos on the Maths No Problem website here:

  • If you would like a different challenge in Maths, Grammar, Reading or Practical ideas then download the year 3 or 4 packs on Classroom Secrets here - good for Maths challenges too

  • TTRS - I have heard that the website has had lots of people across the country trying to access it all at the same time. They are upgrading today so keep trying!

  • Year 4 please do the Soundcheck on Rock stars (after a quick practise beforehand)

  • Joe Wicks is doing daily PE fitness lessons for children at 9am on You Tube - ask a grown up to help you find these (you can find them afterwards too if you want to do it at a different time). Weekdays.


I would like you to take a minute now to think about today, yesterday and this week. Remember when we put a candle flickering on the board? Imagine that at the moment. Have a think for a minute: what have you enjoyed this week? What has been tricky? How have you shown kindness to someone else? Now think about the values we have at school and how you think you can use these to help yourself next week - Love, Courage, Inspiration and Respect. I am very proud of you all.


If you or your grown-ups at home have any questions or if you need any help in any way, please do email the school and we will help in any way we can.

Mrs Green :)
