Mr McNally's Book of the Week:
My Brother is a Superhero by David Solomons

Luke is a comic-mad eleven-year old who shares a treehouse with his geeky older brother, Zack. Luke's only mistake is to go for a wee right at the wrong time. While he's gone, an alien gives his undeserving, never-read-a-comic-in-his-life brother superpowers and then tells him to save the universe. Luke is massively annoyed about this, but when Zack is kidnapped by his arch-nemesis, Luke and his friends have only five days to find him and save the world...

This book had me howling with laughter from start to finish, I can't wait to read others in the series.

Below is an example of Zentangle art. It's about repeating deliberate patterns in a grid and then colouring them in.  Here is a link to help give you some ideas...

Use the template I have provided and you will get 20 points for the whole grid completed with care and patience. :)


Reading and Writing ideas:

In English this half term we are focusing on a book called Here Comes Charlie Moon by Shirley Hughes.  As well as writing in a number of different forms over the unit, we will build towards an end piece; which will include writing a newspaper article and a letter home to parents (from a long holiday away)

The skills we are focussing on in writing are:-

  • Use present and past tenses correctly and consistently
  • Use subordination (because, when, that)
  • Use punctuation correctly (fullstops, capital letters, exclamation marks, question marks)
  • Use apostrophes for possession 

If you wish to practice writing at home with your child during this time, it will be useful for you to focus on some of the above skills.

Further support in English:-

Topmarks: (punctuation, spelling, reading activities)

Oxford Owl: (a range of online books you can read with your child at home)

BBC Bitesize: (phonics, grammar, punctuation, spelling, writing)

Teaching Ideas: (creative writing)


Maths Ideas

In Maths, we are always recapping on our number and place value skills using three digit numbers that include subtraction (exchanging/borrowing) and addition. 

We also continually focus on 6, 7, 8 and 9 timetables (useful games and links to support this are below).

Science Ideas


Forces and Magnets

Compare how things move on different surfaces

Observe how magnets attract or repel each other and attract some materials and not others.

Notice that some forces need contact between two objects, but magnetic forces can act at a distance.

RE Ideas

In RE we are starting our topic of Lent; looking at opportunities to start anew.  

CAFOD: (a range of resources focussed on Lent)

BBC Bitesize:

CAFOD Kidzone:

History ideas

History: Roman Britain

Focusing on Boudicca and exploring differing viewpoints was she a hero or villain?

To learn what life was like in Roman Britain and how it had changed after the Roman invasion.

Find out about everyday lives of people in periods studied.

Make comparisons of life today with those from different periods of time (e.g. Cooking, transport, weapons)

A Great resource would be The Horrible Histories Movie recently released on Satellite TV

Cabin Fever? Then take a look at this!

The world’s best known survival expert (Bear Grylls) is launching a package of 100 indoor activities to keep families “busy, focused and cheerful” and ward off cabin fever during the lockdown.

After the closure of schools millions of families will be cooped up indefinitely and Grylls, the chief scout, is warning that without a plan, “a week stuck at home for a family can be as tough as a week in the mountains”.

Grylls, a former soldier, is launching the Great Indoors initiative with the Scout movement. They will be fronted by Grylls and scout ambassadors, including the TV naturalist Steve Backshall and Helen Glover, the double Olympic rowing champion. Have a look at the link below for some more details!
