Hi Gorran Haven Heroes, 

Welcome to another fun week of learning. 

We have set you 5 tasks to complete - one for each day. 

 Task 1: WRITING

Read through the lesson to learn How to write an explanation.  This is new learning. You can write or video an explanation text about anything. There are lots of ideas including 2 examples in the lesson. You can even make a power-point. Look at the Teacher's example for ideas. 

 Task 2: MATHS

Log on to

Find week 2 and the video you need to watch is called "Equivalent Fractions (1)"

Complete the attached worksheet (see below).

 Task 3: SCIENCE

Read through the lesson and complete the worksheet by dragging and dropping the words and pictures into the correct bow. (You can also print the sheet, cut and stick and send us a photo if you prefer).


Now the nights are getting slightly lighter and the skies are clearer, the star gazers amongst you will have found it easier to spot the different patterns the stars create in the night sky. For this reason, we are going to take a temporary break from the Victorians and return to Space for 1 week only!  Read the attached instructions about star constellations. Using the materials suggested, have a go at making your own star constellations and shine it on  an empty wall!



Read the next chapter of "The Last Guardian" . Complete the quiz to show us your understanding.

(See Attachments below). 

Have a great week and stay safe and ALERT.


In Literacy this Summer term, we will be completing various tasks through distance learning to consolidate learning completed during the Autumn and Spring Terms. So far this year children have been learning from a range of texts including Stone Age Boy, The Enchantress, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, focusing on writing adventure/ journey stories, character descriptions, playscripts, scene settings, instructional writing, information texts about dragons and were-creatures and even a losing tale. Children have learned about adverbs (adjectives to describe how, where or when someone is doing something), imperative (bossy) verbs (instructions), how to write speech using correct punctuation, expanded noun phrases (the hideous, monstrous werewolf), prepositions (in, on, next to, under the luscious, green, leafy tree) and used FANBOYS in their writing to connect sentences  (for, and, nor, but, or, yet and so). We have been learning about poetry using the poem - 'The Magic Box'.
In the Autumn term we learned about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age (see pictures below). We learned about how people lived, ate, travelled and so much more.
For our topic in the Spring  term we learned about 'Space'.
We did lots of exciting learning on our planet, and other planets in our solar system.
In Geography we looked at the continents and oceans on our planet and  we explored artefacts found in space such as moon rocks! We listened to 'Space Stories that Really Happened!' Children learned about the artist Peter Thorpe and created their own versions of Space Art.
 This Term (Summer) we will be learning about the Victorians. Look out for some exciting research projects. We can learn about Queen Victoria, exciting inventions that took place during the Victorian Era and even what it was like to be a Victorian child! The clothes they were are very different to what we wear today. See what you can find out!
In Science we are learning about and experimenting with plants. Learning how plants functions and what they need to grow. 
During Science week we did a range of exciting experiments including making lava lamps, testing spinners, using STEM to see who could make the best structure and the children brought in their own exciting science projects to show and test with us. It was great fun!
In PE, we have been learning the skills, rules and game play involved in rugby, netball and tennis.
As much as possible this term, we will take our learning outside. It would be great if children could have a pair of wellies or old shoes in school at all times as well as a suitable coat.
