Week 6 Timetable 

Hello Everyone.

Please have a look at your weekly timetable.

Your Live Lessons are at:
9:30 - 10:30 - Book Talk
1:30 - 2:30 - English
3:15-3.30 - Afternoon registration.

This Tuesday is Internet Safety Day. You will be watching a live assembly through the BBC website. I have put a link for you to follow and watch along with everyone at 9:00am on the timetable.

Exciting news! On Friday we are going to be having a 'No Device' afternoon. That includes TV, game consoles, laptops, tablets, phones, ALL devices. This means that we will not have any live lessons after our morning Book Talk Lesson. We want you to enjoy an afternoon of free time. You could go for a walk, do some baking, maybe read a book, or have some quality family time. You all deserve a break!

Have a super week! =)

Hello Swifts!

Please see attached your Online Learning Timetable. This includes ALL your learning for the week, as well as the times of your LIVE Google Classroom lessons and check-ins with me. We have also included a helpful reminder sheet for how to join the live Google Classroom lessons with your teacher.


Everyday you will be expected to join a meeting with me from 9.30am -10.30am where I will lead a live book talk session and from 3.00pm - 3.15pm to discuss any questions, or read our class novel. Well done to so many of you for joining our live lesson today - I LOVED seeing you all! There were a few who didn't attend - remember, you just need to click on the meet link at the top of the page that I will make visible at the correct time. Every meeting there will be a register taken and it will tell me who is there. I will be ringing up and contacting those who don't make it. These sessions are COMPULSORY. If you have technical issues with joining, then just let me know. Also, I will be keeping an eye on who is uploading work and who isn't.

You will find all your work on Google Classroom.

Each day you will have:

Book Talk activity

Maths activity

English activity

We look forward to seeing you multiple times a day to check in on how you are getting on with your learning. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Miss McNab :)

  5. Research project - After the Christmas break we will be learning about Stone Age to Iron Age. In preparation for that we would like you to do some research on this topic. Please use the information sheet provided to give you some inspiration. You could pick one specific topic from the poster to research further OR you could research them all!
  • Topics to research could include:
  • Cave painting - where can they be found?
  • How did Hunter Gatherers survive?
  • What is Skara Brae?
  • What was life like in an Iron Age hill fort?

Spelling Words - 11th December

All children, unless given their spellings printed out, will be learning the spellings found below. You can then chose a chilli challenge to complete. This allows the children to really be challenged and stretched to not just complete their spellings but, have an active role in their leaning.

Things to know:

  • Every week children will be asked to complete spellings in their home spelling books.
  • Spellings are due the next Friday and will be tested on in their school spelling books.
  • Children should complete their spellings in a way that is best for them.
  • Test your child throughout the week on their spellings to help them prepare for the test.

You can now also find some worksheets that they can complete throughout the week to help them with their spelling rule.

Choose your challenge:

Mild - Learn the first 10 words

Hot - Learn all 12 words.

Spicy - Learn all 12 words and find other words that fit the spelling rule.
