Learning from Home
In case we're not able to get into school, we will update this page with things you can do to support your learning. To get you started, have a look at...
- Times Tables Rock Stars - children know their logins and have them in their Home-School Diaries. Start with the games that say "teacher set", then go for others if you fancy a challenge.
- Newsround - great to watch the latest updates, as well as explore the other articles and videos that are on there.
- First News - a newspaper produced especially for children. There are 28 pages in this edition, so you might want to save this and read it in a few stages!
- "50 books all kids should read before they're 12" - some book idea inspiration. You might be able to borrow some from Southcote Library, or find them on Kindle (free app, Amazon account needed).
- There are some great TV documentaries - some recommendations here, and an A-Z from CBBC iPlayer. You might like...

Fun science ideas to try at home
There are lots of ideas out there for fun science experiments to try at home. This year, we've already covered the following topics: seasonal changes, forces and light and sound. We are just beginning to learn about materials.
Here are some videos to help you keep active if you are stuck inside!
On Monday, Crane class went on a trip to Windsor Castle. We had an amazing time!! We went to look at Princess Mary's Dolls House, The State Apartments and had a workshop about the 'Royal Home'. When we got to Windsor Castle, the Royal Standard was flying. This meant the Queen was at home. However, during lunchtime, the flag changed to the Union flag, meaning the Queen had left the Castle.
We were lucky enough to see the 'Green' room and 'Red' room before they are closed to the public so the Queen can use them for private engagements. We also went into the 'Garter' room where all of Crane Class were Knighted and became 'Sirs' or 'Ladies'.
It was a fantastic day and we all learnt so much. Well done Crane Class!
