Home School: Day 15

Hello, Beech class!

Well done for making it to end of another week of home school. Today is a special sharing Friday as we not only get to see what you’ve been getting up to this week, but some of you have also shared what you got up to during the Easter break! There is also a special announcement in this post so keep your eyes peeled for that! So without further ado, let’s start today’s learning!


Today’s maths has been set on My Maths and is called ‘Greater than and less than’.

Please go through the lesson activities and complete the questions – don’t forget to press ‘mark it!’.


You should have written a story about your superhero yesterday. The final task is to now write a newspaper report about it all. Remember, newspaper reports answer the questions ‘who?’, ‘what?’, ‘where?’ and ‘when?’  This can be done on Purple Mash on the ‘Hero Saves The Day’ task. Follow the prompts in the activity that will tell you which features to include. However, if you wish, you can do this in your book. 


Joe Wicks is carrying on with his daily PE lessons on his YouTube channel at 9:00 am today!


Here is some handwriting that you could do today:



On Friday 1st May, pupils, families and teachers at Dunraven are invited to take part in  ‘Pyjamarama’, an event organised by Booktrust. The aim of the event is to make sure that no child goes to bed without a bedtime story (find out more here). We are asking Dunraven pupils to spend Friday 1st May in their pyjamas reading stories, taking part in other fun story activities and, if families are able to, donating £1 to Booktrust. Who doesn’t love pyjamas and storytime?!j635j65

Next Friday, log onto our class blog and you will find all the information you need. We are really looking forward to it! 

Sharing Friday

It’s that time of the week again! This week I was blown away by the amount of photos I received – you’ve have been working (and playing) so hard! I tried to include as many as possible, but if I missed anything out, please let me know and I’ll add it in. So, let’s see what you’ve all been getting up to over the past three weeks!


And me…?

As you may know, the school is still open for a small amount of children whose parents can’t look after them during the day because they are key worker (some examples are children of supermarket workers, waste collectors, police officers and NHS workers). Today I went into help look after these children and decided to go and have a wander to Beech class to see if anything had changed. The carpet had been rolled up and the chairs had been stacked and put to one side, but one thing remained the same: the paperclips!


Remember, you earned these paper clips for showing that you could work well as a team.; you are still a team even if you’re not together! I hope very soon we’ll be reunited and can continue learning, working and having fun together!

Have a lovely weekend.
