Kingfisher Class Fri 27th March

Dear Kingfisher,

We hope that you are all staying safe at home and that you are able to get outside when possible, in a safe manner. The daily tasks are listed below, and after that we are giving you work which can be done in line with your usual timetable.

Daily tasks: 

Times Tables – TT Rockstars or any practice that helps you develop and retain fluency.

Reading – Read for 20 minutes every day. See if you can find a new, interesting place to read each day! Audible  has opened up its children’s books section for free – so download something different and get it to read to you!

Audible Stories – 100s of kids’ audiobooks for free. Just click, stream and listen:

Spellings – Please continue to learn and USE the year 5/6 statutory spellings. Choose 10 and try to write a sentence incorporating one of each in the correct context – see if you can get more than one into a single sentence.   If you do not have a list, look on Twinkl.  There are lists for Year 3 and 4 words and Year 5 and 6 words.

Go on to Spelling list Year 3 and 4 for lists and word searches.

Spelling list Year 5 and 6 for list of spellings and crosswords using these spellings.

Activity – Don’t forget that at school you have a run around twice a day during break and lunch. It’s up to you what activity you do at home but it is important to keep a routine going. Rather than setting PE for you each week, try to join in with the Joe Wicks live school workout sessions.  It will happen each day on You Tube at 9 a.m.  You don’t need any equipment or kit – just get moving – it will be a great way to start your day – and you’ll be doing it with hundreds of other children around the country!

How to join in Joe Wicks Body Coach PE lessons for kids

Go to The Body Coach TV on YouTube and simply join in the 30 minute workout from 9am.

English and Maths

To give your child a set of fully planned and accessible tasks to do at home, we are recommending Hamilton Trust’s website.  They have a daily lesson for both English and Maths for Year 6.

There are five lessons for each subject in Week One, which will take your child up to and including Tuesday 31st March.

Usually we would have two English lessons and one of Maths, it is up to you whether or not you do one of each, or two English.


There is a lovely competition which is related to RE and being spiritual.
