Literacy- Write a letter to your class teacher and tell them about what you have been doing. 




When planning your letter don't forget to think about:

  • The purpose of your letter.
  • Including conjunctions in your sentences.
  • Adding some time connectives.
  • Remember your non-negotiables.
  • Think about your presentation, handwriting and spelling.


Remember to keep re-reading your letter back to check it makes sense.

Today I have got you a numeracy challenge and a new website to explore that I think you will really like!


Numeracy 10 more and 10 less

Make your own tens and ones using straws, tooth pics, pencils (or anything else you can think of which you can make into bundles of ten).

Make your own tens and ones baseboard and practise adding and subtracting 10 from your number.

Link to video on adding 10:


The video shows how to work with 'hundreds' too. Don't worry if you're not sure about this. You only need to be able to add and subtract tens from two digit numbers at the moment.



Do you like comics? Enjoy this free digital copy of The Beano.




The website looks fab too. There are all sorts of fun things such as quizzes, jokes and games to have a look at.


Don't forget to keep exercising too. Try Joe Wicks if you haven't done so already. I wonder if you could make your own routine up?



Home Learning Week 2 (03.04.20)


Today's challenge is all about 

Internet Safety

Can you talk about internet safety with an adult.

(link to web page)


Please take note of the 4-7 section and the parent/carer section for information.



Now make a safety poster to share your safety knowledge with other people.

Take a look at some examples:



Home Learning 1.4.20

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Your challenge for today is to write a character profile about a member of your family. Start by drawing a picture of them and then write about their appearance and their personality. Try to start each sentence in a different way.


He/she has....

You might notice that...

In my opinion...

It is true that...


To take your learning further why not write a character profile for your favourite book/film/tv character.


Home Learning Week 2 (30.03.20)

Your numeracy learning for this week is to click on the link below and play some of the games. There are lots to choose from!


Don't forget to continue practising your 2, 5 & 10 times tables. Ask a grown up to write some down for you to solve as quickly as you can. E.g. 2 x 5 =, 4 x 10 =, 8 x 2 =

You could make a game of 'times tables bingo' or 'times table pairs'. 





I wonder what facts you can discover about space?



Hi again Class 6!

Are you managing to get in the garden and have fun in the sunshine? It's beautiful at the moment!

I hope you have managed to do some fab writing about your family! 


Your challenge for day 3 (27/3/20) is a creative one :-)


I wonder if you can use your creativity skills to produce a self portrait. You can do a pencil sketch, coloured pencil, pastel, paint or even a collage!

Maybe you could do it in a 'Pop Art' style like we were doing in school.


Gracie and I have been busy being artists this week. If you want even more art to do have a look at this link. 


This link takes you to a cartoon lesson from an artist from Sheffield called Pete McKee. We've had fun doing them!

White Rose Maths

White Rose Maths are producing home learning sessions. Have a look at this one.

PE with Joe Wicks!


Is there anybody out there?!

This term we have been learning all about space. In history we have learnt about the lives of Neil Armstrong, Helen Sharman and Tim Peake. 

We have used non-fiction texts, websites and videos to learn about the planets.

We have also read many stories about space, such as 'Whatever Next! by Jill Murphy and 'The Darkest Dark' by astronaut Chris Hadfield. We have used these stories to help us write our own too!


Sharing our Enterprise Learning with Rotherham Teachers!

These children had the opportunity to share our learning with a group of teachers from other schools in Rotherham. We visited the 'AMRC Training Centre' and the children led the 'yoghurt innovation challenge' for the teachers. They spoke confidently and clearly and all the teachers said they were very impressed with the children's skills. Well done children!

In our 'Integrated learning' we practise lots of different skills. We have been using our creative skills when painting in the style of famous artist Graham Bickell.

Our sand area helps us to practise our fluency in numeracy. We have to answer the numeracy questions as quickly but accurately as we can! Our role play area this term is Shrek's swamp! We get to dress up as Shrek or Donkey and act out the film before writing it as a story!



Make £5 Blossom!


We set up 2 companies in our class. Each company created products to sell at the Christmas Fair. We took on different roles and decided how much to sell our products for in order to make a profit.

We are very pleased with our profit of £61.35. We have already started to research board games and comics/magazines that we could buy for our classroom!




Summer Term - How Wonderful is the World?


This term we will be embarking on an adventure around the whole world. We will explore what makes it wonderful from towering volcanoes and rainforests to the vast variety of fascinating creatures that call the Great Barrier Reef home.


As well as this we will be investigating a huge range of flavours and tastes which make our world so exciting.


Keep visiting our page to follow our learning journey.

This link will take you to 'Google Earth' where you can explore the world from your computer!


This week we have been learning about volcanoes. We have created our very own volcano!


A member of our class has recently earned herself a Blue Peter Badge. We were all so impressed that we have decided to try and earn one as a class. We are going to write some amazing fact files about volcanoes and post them off to Blue Peter. We know we will have to try our hardest as it won't be easy to earn a badge! Wish us luck!




We had to guess which country these foods and spices came from!



We are working as a team to create a model of 'The Great Wall of China'. 




Integrated Learning

This is our 'Role Play' area this term. We are exploring the Amazon Rainforest. We are learning to use non-fiction texts to research facts about different rainforest animals and then write a report.



This is our sand area. When we visit this area we are learning to solve problems quickly and accurately.



Spring Term

This term our topic is 'Disney'! We have been researching to find out more about Walt Disney and how he set up the company.

We have also started to make our own animations. 


Here these children are really focused on creating their animation using the 'I can animate' app on the Ipad. They've had to be resilient as an animation takes a lot of hard work!



We are creating wonderful pieces of fabric work! Can you see which Disney characters we have created?



We love 'Integrated' learning as we get to work on lots of different skills. Which skills do you think the children are working on here...?



Book at Bedtime

Throughout March we took part in 'Book at Bedtime month'. Children had to read at bedtime every night for a whole month. To celebrate, we came to school in our pyjamas for the final day. We also brought our favourite book to share.


Problem Solving!

In class 6 we love to solve problems. We know we have to be resilient when solving problems. We keep on trying until we are successful! In this section we will keep adding photos of us solving different problems.

Finding 2-digit numbers where the digits total 5. 

Here we were investigating 2-digit numbers where the digits totalled 5. Once we had found all the possibilities one of the children suggested investigating 3 digit numbers where the digits totalled 5! Can you find all the possibilities?




2016/17 Autumn Term

This term we are 'travelling through time' in our learning! This gives us the opportunity to visit many different eras. Some of the places we will be landing are, the prehistoric dinosaur era, the Ice Age, Ancient Egypt, Medieval Times, the Victorian era as well as flying into the future!


Keep visiting our class page to see our learning throughout the term!


Our day in the life of a Victorian...



Our Numeracy learning...



If you would like to practise your numeracy skills at home this website link has some excellent games! Click on the 'student zone'.






2015/16 Summer Term

Our topic this term is 'A Bug's Life!'. We are learning all about fascinating creatures such as spiders, ants and butterflies.


We were set a challenge to design and make a party outfit! We set up companies. Within our company we had a designer, accountant and a marketing assistant. We applied for the job that we thought we would be best suited to. We had to have an interview and say why we thought we would be good at the job! Below are photographs of us busy at work and our finished designs! 


This week (9.5.16) we have researched and created a fact card all about scorpions. Take a look at some of our writing below.


Ayaan Ahmad's fact card.

Keaton-Lee's fact card.

Alfie's fact card.

Alfie's fact card.

Haneeka's fact card.

Haneeka's fact card.


We held an 'Enterprise Day' and our challenge was to design and create a spider's web. Take a look at our wonderful designs below.




In Literacy we have been reading a book called 'Tadpole's Promise'. After reading this we imagined how each of the characters would have felt and wrote some fantastic letters and diaries. Take a look at some of our writing below.


In Numeracy we are learning to tell the time! We know o' clock, quarter past, half past and quarter to the hour. Our next step is to practise telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes. Why not practise this at home!

Spring Term

Last term our topic was 'What makes Great Britain great?'. We learnt all about our local area as well as our capital city.


We used our teamwork skills to create a collaborative sewing of London. We had to be very resilient as it wasn't easy and took quite a long time to complete! Do you recognise any of the famous landmarks?

Ayaan used his creativity skills to create this fantastic birds eye view of New York Stadium in Rotherham. We love how he created the effect of a busy football crowd!


In literacy we read and watched lots of Paddington Bear stories. We then created our own stories. Kyrah and Scarlett used paint to create these fabulous pieces of art. What amazing paint skills they have! 



Mason Haydn has also used his problem solving skills to complete a tricky numeracy challenge.
