Art and DT for Long Mynd and Hawkstone

Today we would like you watch the video of Any Dream Will Do .

In the story the main focus is Josephs amazing technicoloured dream coat.

For today’s activity we would like you to design your own coat onto a gingerbread man. Using icing and colourful sweets ( this could be skittle, smarties, rainbow drops)  we would like you to design a coat for Joseph. This can be as imaginative and colourful as you want.

  1. Use icing to cover the whole top of the gingerbread man.
  2. Sprinkle the sprinkle topping ( sweets of your choice ) on the icing (letting the extras fall on a plate so you can re-use them). Or you can put a lot of sprinkles in a dish and turn the frosted cookie upside down and put into the sprinkles (press down just a little bit until they stick).
  3. Put on the sweets to make  eyes, mouth, and buttons on his coat.

Please find below a video of how you make your icing . Alternatively you can buy tubed icing that is already mixed .

If you can not access any gingerbread men as an alternative you could decorate a biscuit (rich tea) and design a coat on that instead.

If you do not have access to  gingerbread men or rich tea biscuits, then we have attached a template of a blank coat for you to design your own by drawing and colouring it instead.

Please send in your finished designs via class dojo and we look forward to seeing your work.

History for Long Mynd and Hawkstone


Today we would like you to listen to the story of Joseph and his technicoloured dream coat and study the part of the story based in Egypt. Our focus will be to be look at the social hierarchy of the different social groups of Ancient Egypt.

We would like you to read through the power point attached below and work through the worksheet .

Egyptians Social Triangle Presentation

Social hierarchy worksheet

After you have completed the social hierarchy task we would like you to have a go at some Egyptian writing .The ancient Egyptians invented one of the earliest known writing systems. The symbols they used were called hieroglyphs, which comes from a Greek word meaning ‘sacred carving’. This is because the ancient Egyptians believed that hieroglyphs had been invented by the gods. This is not surprising because hieroglyphs were very beautiful.

Today’s task is to work through the powerpoint below and – write your name using the hieroglyphs sheet attached. Once complete can you send over your work via Class dojo.

Whole school music challenge – ‘Any Dream Will Do’!


We are setting you a singing challenge to complete over half term and including the first week back in school. We will be studying the Bible story ‘Joseph and the coat of many colours’ when returning to school. Your challenge is to watch and listen to the powerpoint below (made by Miss Younger) and learn a song from the musical of Joseph called ‘Any dream will do’. Once you have learnt the song, can you record yourself singing and together, as a whole school, we will collate the videos and make our own version of the song.

You can find the song and lyrics attached to the post, or on You Tube:

The moral of the story is forgiveness, one of our school’s Christian Values and therefore the story has an important part in our school’s ethos and well-being of the children.

Colossians 3:13,

“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”


Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical comedy with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The story is based on the “coat of many colours” story of Joseph from the Bible’s Book of Genesis and was produced in 1999.


Please see the PowerPoint below created by Miss Younger and complete the following tasks:

  • Learn the song
  • Record yourself singing
  • Please send any videos in to by 2nd March 2021, which then gives us time to edit and create the final video.

Thank you for all your continued support with home learning at these difficult times that we are faced with.

Mental Health Week – Long Mynd and Hawkstone

Morning and welcome to ‘Mental Health Week’, this week is a little different with less screen time and more creativity. We are having a more relaxed week where we will be posting a time table  (see below) for you to work through as you wish and what best suit you as a family. 

  • The focus for English is the book,  ‘A huge bag off worries’.
  • The Maths theme is shop and supermarket
  • The afternoons are based around five areas: Arts and Crafts, Music and Performance, Science and Discovery, Sports and Fitness, Design and Food Technology. 

This year’s theme is Express Yourself.

In the message, The Duchess of Cambridge said:


“This year’s Children’s Mental Health Week is all about expressing yourself – about finding creative ways in which to share your thoughts, ideas and feelings. So whether that’s through photography, through art, through drama, through music or poetry – it’s finding those things that makes you feel good about yourself.

For Children’s Mental Health Week 2021, we will be encouraging children (and adults) to explore the different ways we can express ourselves, and the creative ways that we can share our feelings, our thoughts and our ideas.

Mr Dickson will be holding a zoom introduction at 9:30- link  on Dojo.

Meeting ID: 917 3364 2762
Passcode: Hello

Following on from this, Miss Kerr will be out of class home learning while Miss Hutson is back in class teaching. We will be holding a range of catch up support sessions daily where you can attend if you feel your child will benefit from any of the sessions.

Support sessions will include: handwriting, reading, sentence structure or please message if you feel you need 1:1 support with another area. Simply send a  message via DOJO or class email if you would like to set any of these up. Links will be sent the night before. All welcome.


Below we have attached a weekly journal, please work through this and send  the completed journal at the end of the week. Remember the aim for this week is to have less screen time, so we understand if you only log on the website once a week.

Monday 25th January 2021

On Monday I was out fishing when I came across a huge iron beast, I was so scared, I had never seen anything so big before. The first thing I did was run back to our farm to tell my dad; I was so nervous he was not going to believe me…
