I certainly don't expect you to print all of the activities out, you record them however you like and just post them on to 'Seesaw', remember the work is optional so you don't need to feel overwhelmed by it all. 

Above I have attached A Hearts of Hope template. You can colour it and write a lovely message of hope for other people to see! Don't worry if you don't have a printer, you can make your own! 

Don't forget to show me your fantastic designs on seesaw.


Lesson ideas-

30 minute exercise with Joe Wick, 9am on his you tube channel.


TT Rockstars: 5-10 minutes a day really is beneficial for your fluency and speed of times tables. 


Bug Club- read a book and answer comprehension questions. Furthermore, pick up your book of choice and read for enjoyment.


These video links are from GO4ITSPORTS. Can you have a go at their challenges?


Active learn-Bug Grammar- try the different grammar activities.


Purple Mash- ICT- same login as your bug club. Feel free to tackle any activity you like, however there is a weekly activity section to try. 


Scratch is a coding game, you can create your own background, characters and games. For instructions on how to do this type in scratch tutorial in You Tube and follow tutorial 1 and work your way up. This is really cool! 


Some ideas from the scouts:


Show me history-

Have a look and learn anything that may interest you. Perhaps you may want to share your knowledge learnt through ‘Seesaw?’


Scroll down and work your way through the forces in motion section. Post some of the work done, it doesn’t all have to be interactive. 

Reading and comprehension-


Spelling/ Grammar-


If you would like to improve your vocabulary skills-


Finally, help out with chores, make the beds, help make tea and give your parents a break 😉. 


Hope there is a wide variety for you to choose from , if you have any suggestions or ideas let me know and I will see if it’s possible. 

Mr. Beck


We hope you are enjoying having a go at some of the suggested Home Learning activities.

If you are working online, don’t forget to be safe and savvy! 

Never give personal information to anyone! Think about the safety of what you are sharing or posting if you are online or on your phone.

Do not share your school log-ins or change your log-in details. We won’t ask you to do that.

Make sure you are accessing online material that is relevant for your age and tell an adult at home if you come across something that is not suitable for you, or if someone is trying to contact/talk to you that is not someone you know.

You can contact your teacher through Seesaw if you feel vulnerable or worried, or contact Childline 0800 1111.

Useful reminders about Online Safety are at

Home Reading

Reading is so important for so many reasons and is a brilliant way to relax and escape into a brilliant story.

There are lots of books available to enjoy on Bug Club.

Re-read an old favourite from your book shelf.

Remember that audible are offering free audio books for children during Lockdown (search audible free children's stories).
