Miss High x


The above is a timetable that we will be following whilst we’re in this period of isolation. Each session (see times on the left) will begin with a meeting on Microsoft Teams with a guided task for you all to complete. These tasks must be kept either in your work book (which was sent home) or submitted in ’assignments’ on Microsoft Teams. I will direct you to where I would like you to do your work, whether it is in the book or on a worksheet. These will be returned to school.

Please try to attend each session promptly and with some paper/a pen or pencil so that we can get down to working straight away. I understand that technology doesn’t always work as we’d like it to, so in the event that you cannot attend a session or your device isn’t working, I will put all worksheets on Microsoft Teams (under assignments) and also on the website on our class page.

Any queries about this can be put into the ‘Teams’ chat.

Finally, for the days that we have PE (Tuesday) please make sure you’re dressed in appropriate sports clothing as you will have a session to follow.

Take care everyone. These times are very strange I know but remember, we’re all in this together. I’m already looking forward to being back at work with you all!

Miss High




Every day, Maths will be introduced via Microsoft Teams, you will need to press the ‘meet’ button at your allocated time for your group. If technology does not let you access it one day, here is the Maths work for this week. All of the worksheets have been uploaded and I will be sending out answers also.

L.O: To discuss the meaning of vocabulary in context (2a)

Some of Shakespeare’s vocabulary can be difficult for us today. However, it is often possible to understand because of the context, the facial expressions of the actors or their actions.

Today, you will work in small groups (breakout rooms) to discuss the meaning of the old-fashioned words, where you can work together to write the sentences, changing the word in the sentence.

Lesson 1: L.O: To explore how artists create perspective in their work.

Today we are starting our art topic, illusions. We will go through the slides together and how a vanishing point, horizon line and construction lines are used to create art work. You will need a sketch pad and pencils to experiment with this. It might take a couple of attempts, that is fine, please do not rub anything out! It is a working document and you can try again, it shows progression. Have a look how you can show distance. Choose a challenge, either A or B and complete this work and send me a photo. I cannot wait to see your art work.

Lesson 2: L.O: To experiment with vanishing word art.

For the second lesson today, you will be looking at using a vanishing point but this time for word art. You will be writing your name. Try to add colour to your work and send me a photograph of it.

Lesson 1: L.O: To explore ways that believers of God can grow and change to be more like Christ during the season of Lent.

During the Season of Lent, our prayer cloth is purple. Together, we shall explore some of the changes that take place in the different seasons of the year. Then, we will revise what we already know about Lent. Just as the changes in the seasons, Christians use Lent as a time to grow and change to be more like Christ. We will discuss ways that we can do this and you will need to write and draw in your book different ways that we can grow and be like Christ along the path.

L.O: To discuss our hopes and dreams for after Lockdown.

Two cartoonists are launching a Children's mental health initiative, called Bottlemoments. It's something they have been doing for a while for NHS staff, with Rob Murray drawing cartoons to visualise their dreams post pandemic. They have launched a national competition for children to encourage hope, strength, and perseverance through looking forward.


The competition is across the EYFS and all key stages, with four categories:

Under 5's

6 - 8 yrs

9- 11yrs

12 -16yrs


Entries need to use the bottle templates (attached) and should have a brief description of the picture. They are to be uploaded via twitter or Instagram by those taking part using #bottlemoments. Your parents can submit your entry using their Twitter or Instagram accounts. They must have the #tag to be counted.  Ten winners will be selected by Ben Shepherd and those winners will receive a customized cartoon of their 'dream' drawn by Rob Murray and presented to them in person by Ben Shepherd.

All details can be found at https://www.bottlemoments.com/covid-19-kids

As we are starting a new topic, I would like you to create a mind map of what you already know about animals including humans, thinking about gestation periods and changes from being young to old.

L.O: To learn how to cite your sites.

Today, I would like you to do some research about William Shakespeare as we are reading the playscript for Romeo and Juliet. You will need to write down the name of the websites that you use and practise citing the website correctly. We learn about this as it helps us to check the reliability of websites so that we know that we are using reliable and accurate information.
