Week 1 Fun

 Week 2 Fun coming soon!

Welcome to the Owls Online Learning Classroom                                                                                                  

Hi everyone,

We are nearly at the end of March and moving forward into April. We hope you remembered to put your clocks forward an hour.  Remember the saying, ‘Spring forward, Fall back’. Remember, Fall is the American name for the season we call Autumn.

Did you know?

  • The Royal Air Force was founded on the 1st April, 1918.
  • The fairy tale author Hans Christian Andersen was born on April 2nd, 1805.
  • The first Olympics of the modern era was held in Athens on the 6th April, 1896.

We hope that you got on well with your home learning last week and that we successfully answered your questions that we received by email. Remember that you can contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you need to.

We have created a ‘fun page’ for you, which has jokes and puzzles on it. See the link at the top of this page. Can you send us some jokes for it? There is also a 'Mindfulness Reminder' and some ideas for exercise (Gymrun PDFtoo!

Remember you can get lots of ideas from 'Looking After Yourself and Your Family' and these online learning websites.

Below is the guidance for the work you have, for this week, in your home learning packs. 

All Owls (Year 5 & Year 6)

The tasks to complete each day are: 

  • Reading. Try to read for at least 20 minutes each day and record this in your reading homework book. We can then work out your Airmiles when you return to school. 
    Reading may include: reading a recipe to bake something; reading part of a fiction or non-fiction book; reading and following a set of instructions to make something; reading and following the rules of a game; reading your comprehension task for the week and answering the questions; reading part of a magazine or newspaper and reading poetry. 
  • Spelling. Practise your weekly spellings each day. 10 minutes a day will do wonders for your spelling. You will then be ready for an adult to test you. 

  • Times Tables. Keep your times tables going by practising them for 10 minutes each day. This week we have set up access for you all to use Times Tables Rockstars. When you get your log-in details, ask a parent if you can log on and have a go.

  • English and Maths. See the tables below. 
    Year 5 – your tasks are shown below in BLUE and Year 6 – look out for your tasks in GREEN.

Remember to complete your Learning Log, the English (Year 5 / Year 6) grids and Maths Log to show which tasks are complete.
