Our week in Hawkstone class

Our star of the week is Maria, she has settled well into our class and has worked hard to compete all home work set.

This week, we have been working hard in all areas of the curriculum.
In french, we have been taking part in role play asking our partner questions and telling then how we feel.

We had a visit from Booka bookshop who shared new and upcoming authors with us. We have the chance to buy the books- forms were sent out and need to be back in by Friday 26th  April.

In netball this week, we focused of stride stop and how to pivot, we recapped on our passes to help us.

In comprehension,  we have been using a dictionary to help us find definitions for key vocabulary, these words are lined to the different texts we read.

Good morning, as you can see by the weather we have another snow day.

Below are a number of activities if you need to keep busy:

Photography Competition 

Can you take a cool picture in the snow? Think about:

  • Footprints
  • shapes and patterns
  • snowmen
  • snow angels


Have a lovely weekend and see you Monday.


Each Friday, every child will receive homework to be handed in for the following week. This will be one piece of work linked to our core curriculum subjects. This homework is set to deepen our understanding of what we are learning in school.

Each Half Term, a home learning project will be set as well. This is a project that may take longer and can be done over the length of the half term as an adult/child collaboration.

Easter Sunday Home learning

Good morning, as we have a number of children either self isolating or working from home. I have provided a PowerPoint and a number of activities for you to complete over the next few days.

I have attracted a church video for Easter Sunday on slide one and a rage of activities such as:

  • Re-tell the Easter story in your own words,
  • Reading comprehension – RIC  style questions,
  • Maths reasoning with STEM SENTENCES,
  • Easter card,
  • Easter garden,
  • Easter crossword.


Please work through the activities if you have resources available. Any questions please don’t hesitate to contact us through Dojo.

Thank you and keep safe from myself and Mrs Rowley.
