We would recommend parents don’t try to create the perfect schedule of learning activities. What children need at this time is to feel comforted and loved. We need to provide reassurance and support to them! So, relax, find time to bake, do some gardening, play a board game, and watch movies together. Be a family and don’t worry about any ‘gaps’ in learning, all children are in the same boat and we as a school will work very hard – once we can all be together again!

Holly Class' Weekly Missions

(should you chose to accept them, post what you have done on our twitter page or email it to  keepingintouch@fairfield.worcs.sch.uk for us to share!)

WB 6/4/2020 - This week I would like you to make an Easter card that has a 3D element to it. Give it to someone in your house or post it to someone in your family/a nursing home! Don't forget to send me pictures!

WB 30/3/2020 - This weeks mission is to write a 'rainbow' poem, thinking about what you are most looking forward to when things go back to normal! 



 Read at least 4 times a week! Read your school books, your own books, magazines, anything! Listen to your children read, let them listen to you, but please, read regularly every week – this is the best thing you can do!

Education City

https://www.educationcity.com - Please continue with the allocated Reading, Writing and Maths work which is in the HOMEWORK section. I have now added Science activities to this as well!


https://whiterosemaths.com/homelearning/ Want to keep up the daily #MathsParty routine over Easter? No problem! White Rose will be adding lessons for the next two weeks so you don’t miss out. Don’t worry if you’re taking a break. All four of the weekly blocks of lessons will still be available, so you can catch up later on.

If you haven’t been using this resources yet, give it a go- each ‘lesson’ has a teaching video and follow up activity. This follows the same structure that we use in school!

Don’t forget to keep practising your times tables with TTRS https://ttrockstars.com 

Year 2: 2, 5, & 10’s    Year 3: 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 & 8’s


How are your diaries coming along? Don’t forget to write in it regularly – this will help you with your handwriting and sentence structure. Try to use the following as your write to add detail and description:

Noun phrases (adjective, adjective noun… e.g. brilliant, vibrant butterflies)

Fronted adverbials (In the distance, … Next to me, … As time went by, … Suddenly, …)

Commas in lists (apples, bananas and grapes…)

Past tense (It has already happened)

1st Person (me, I, we)
