Year 3


You have all worked very hard creating your own innovations based on our model text and the story of “The Day The Crayons Quit”. Now we would like you to use everything we have learnt and practised so far, and turn your ideas into a brand new story using the title “The Day The Clothes Quit”. Please remember to apply our Everyday Toolkit to your writing, as well as our Class Toolkit for the story itself. Our top tip is to keep to the structure of the model text, which you know very well indeed, as this will help you to remember the underlying patterns that will form the basis of your new story. As always, please present your work beautifully and use a writing pencil. Good luck!


  • Punctuation
  • Conjunctions
  • Sight Spelling Words
  • Have A Go Spelling Words
  • Handwriting
  • Effective adjectives
  • Noun phrases
  • Show, don’t tell (describe body language/emotions)
  • Structure: opening build up, problem, resolution, ending



On our return to school in January, we will be starting a new topic which is multiplication. Therefore, it would really benefit you to practise your times tables as much as possible during the holidays.


Why not try having a go at accessing the following website to enhance your skills:


Also, we would like you to write and solve 3 word problems linked to addition and subtraction calculations. Challenge yourself to include numbers up to 4 digits. You may wish to include more than 1 step, and even a bar model!


For example:

Mr Davies saves £2651.

Mrs Davies saves £2150 more than Mr Davies.


How much does Mrs Davies save?

How much do they save altogether?


All work should be clearly named and brought into school on Tuesday 7th January.


Happy Christmas from all of us in Year 3!

Year 5

Dear Year 5,
We are very sorry to have missed you at the end of this term. We have attached some of the work we would have been doing this week to the website for you to have a go at over the week.
Maths: We are continuing to look at fractions of amounts. We have a quiz and some challenge cards for you to have a go at. Please don’t panic if they are too tricky, just do your best!
English: Please complete the reading challenge set last week. Read three books and  review them – a short and snappy review for each one will do. Use your own paper. Miss Roome will still enter these for the certificate and bookmark  Keep practicing your spellings from the year 5/6 words list given to you last Friday.
Quiz: We have also given your a christmas quiz we prepared for this week. Maybe you could try it with your family?
Thank you for all of your hard work and thank you to your parents for all of your support throughout the term. We are sorry we couldn’t have seen you to say goodbye. Have a very merry Christmas and a happy New Year. We look forward to seeing you all in January 2020!
From all of the Year 5 team.
