Mrs Gardner Landacre Class


Hi Landacre Class

Well done for completing the first week of home schooling for many of you! I am so impressed by the number of you logging in to google classroom and completing work daily- you are doing a brilliant job and it is a great way to keep your skills going. If you ever want to do more work than I set, remember if you look on the home learning section of the school website, there are links to lots of different activities for each subject (especially some good ones for Art and PE).

Remember it is now the holidays, so try to enjoy the break and do some of the things that you maybe don't normally have time for- cooking, reading, playing board games and maybe even sorting out your bedroom! 

I will be phoning you the week after the holidays to check that everything is ok and that you are managing to do some schoolwork but until then, keep in touch with each other using google classroom and keep smiling :)

This week has been all about gathering animal ideas for our art work and learning about refraction in science

Another jam packed week! A visit from some animals at Exmoor Zoo and gathering ideas in our sketchbooks for our next piece of art work.

In science this week we have been building our own mirror mazes, trying to reflect the light off mirrors to hit a target. Som groups managed to bounce the light off of 8 different mirrors!

Welcome back

We have been straight back into learning, discussing our new text “A wizard of Earthsea” and freezeframing key moments as well as experimenting with rays of light in science.

It’s Christmas! We have had a lovely week, finishing off our Maths and literacy units as well as making Christmas cards and enjoying Christmas film and pj party. 


I am not setting revision book homework over the holidays as I am hoping all the children can have a restful break and enjoy some family time. However, just to keep them ticking over it would be good to do a little bit on TTRockstars, Mathsframe or ks2 Bitesize and please encourage them to keep reading! Our next topic is Attenborough so if you can find time to watch one of his many documentaries that would be great too. 

HAPPY CHRISTMAS from Mrs Gardner and Mrs Davey

Homework- As the children have worked so hard all week, I have not set them homework from their revision books. Instead I would like them to relax and READ as reading is the paper we are currently finding the hardest (and also because there is nothing like curling up and reading a good book when the weather is miserable!)

After working hard all week on our SATs practice papers, we enjoyed an afternoon making potions linked to our literacy text Harry Potter: A Journey through magic.

This week we had a very exciting visit from a policeman and his police dogs!

This week we have been freeze framing moments from our key text in Literacy, reading our new books and pretending to be “Darwin’s finches” in Science.

This week we pretended to be predators of the peppered moth in Science! We had to grab as many “moths” as we could with our “beaks” in a minute. We found generally that it was easier to prey on those “moths” who did not blend into their background although we are also not sure that all our results are reliable for a number of reasons so will be continuing with this next week.
