Your activities for today!



Please practise your arithmetic (adding, subtracting, multiplication and division).

Click here to play the game 'hit the button'. There are lots of different levels of challenge. Start with the easier ones first as this will help your confidence to grow.

Also there is a 10 a day sheet below.



Did you like the picture above? It is by a famous British Artist, David Hockney. Click here to find out what he's been doing in France over the past couple of weeks. Scroll through his delightful art work.


Choose your favourite picture and write a description of it. (It might be helpful to imagine that the person reading your writing can not see the picture.) Remember to use lots of adjectives.


Quest - Art

Choose one of David Hockney's pictures to re-create, using some of your art materials.


Create your own spring-inspired work of Art. Maybe there are some lovely trees or plants you can see from your window or out in your garden?

Enjoy being creative!

Spring Acrostic Poem

Spring Acrostic Poem 1

Monday 30th March


Can you remember the Spring acrostic poem that you finished on Friday?  See mine above!

Today we would like you to have a go at writing your own Spring Acrostic poem! Click here for some spring pictures to give you some inspiration!



Can you sort 3d shapes in different ways, according to their properties, such as faces, edges and vertices?


Find some of your own 3d shapes. Can you sort them in different ways?

Here are some ideas to help:

-shapes with curved faces, shapes without curved faces

-shapes with 6 faces, shapes that do not have 6 faces

-shapes with 8 vertices, shapes that do not have 8 vertices.


R. E.

In R.E. we have been learning about what Christians believe about Easter. We have been focusing on the events of Holy Week and have already heard the story of Palm Sunday and the Last Supper.

Can you find out a bit more about the events of Holy Week and the Easter story?

A children’s Bible might help if you have one or click here for the story on Espresso.

Activity – Write a sentence to match each picture on the Holy Week picture sheet below.


Holy Week Pictures

Don't forget to look on the Forest School webpage for forest school type activities you can do in your home and garden.

Lots of them are 'off screen' ideas.

Friday 27th March

Good morning Tomlinson class. Hope you are well and enjoying the sunshine.


English - poetry

Can you finish my Spring acrostic poem? Try to include some similes and adjectives.


Sunshine as yellow as daffodils

Pink blossom like candyfloss


Insects ………

New lambs…….



Now copy out the finished poem in your neatest writing (joined if you can). I wish I could see your poems! smiley


Maths – 3d shapes

Find some 3d shapes (cones, cubes, cuboids, spheres, pyramids, cylinders, triangular prisms)

Have a good look at each one. Can you identify:

 - the number of faces and their shapes (Faces can be flat or curved.)

 -the number of edges (where faces meet)

- the number of vertices (the points where edges meet)


Make a table like the one below to record the number of faces, edges and vertices each shape has:-




As the weather is nice, continue to look for signs of spring in your garden or during your outside exercise time with your family, if this is part of your routine (please remember social distancing).

Can you name any animals or plants that you see? Looking under stones and logs can be interesting, but remember to carefully put back after, as these are part of the animal’s home.

Wednesday 25th March

Hi Tomlinson Class,

We really hope you have been able to enjoy this beautiful sunshine during your time away from school.  We are thinking of you all often, and hope you are enjoying time with your families.  We hope to see you very soon, but until we do, please stay safe and be good for your mums and dads!

Welcome to Tomlinson Class!

Have you read any of Jill Tomlinson's books?

Our new Quest for the Spring term is:

'Wonderfully Made'


Over the next few weeks we will be looking at bridges.  How many bridges can you think of?  What are they made from?  Have you walked over any?  Or walked under any?


Who was Brunel?  We will be finding out all about him soon!

Entry Point - The children enjoyed bringing in special or interesting objects from home to share with each other. It was lovely to have man made and natural items. It prompted lots of discussions.




Our Quest for the Autumn term is

'Royalty and Rebels'


What do you know about our Royal family?


Year 5 shared stories with Year 2 as part of our book week. The children really enjoyed listening to the stories.

We dodged the showers for an Autumn walk today! We found lots of signs of autumn.

Royalty and Rebel Dress up Day!
