Week beg 18.5.20

How did you get on with the bird watching last week? Did anyone see anything unusual in their garden? I can’t believe we are nearly at half term already. It has been a strange couple of months.

Google Drive

Here is the link to this week’s google drive.


Maths continues to follow the White Rose Hub and some 3D shape work from the CGP book on Friday. English involves some diary writing using the CGP books and some clips about children living in Kenya. I have also included a PSHE sheet to do if you want to and the theme folder with activities which also now includes a comprehension about Nelson Mandela to complete in your own time- choose your level.

Times Tables Rockstars

Well done to all of you that took part in the Gloucestershire Schools Time Table Rockstars competition. I believe we came 22nd out of 86 schools, which is a fantastic result especially as some of those schools are considerably bigger than ours. Year 5 were 25th out of over 500 classes and Seb came 2nd out of 79 who took part from our school. Amazing!

Cheltenham Science Festival

Some of you might be interested to know that the Cheltenham Science Festival will be happening virtually between the 2-7th June all for free. Look at the web link below to find out more.


Money sense

For those of you who like to manage your pocket money- you might be interested in the home learning activities provided by Nat West. It included games and activities about budgeting and saving money. Some useful ‘real life’ maths!


National Book Tokens

If you have a spare few minutes, please can you visit the national book tokens site below and nominate Bussage school to win £5000 worth of book tokens for the benefit of the children in our school.


Finally, I hope you have a lovely half term and we shall see what June brings us. Hopefully, we will be back in school at some point before the summer holidays!

Please continue to send me your lovely work. It is great to see what you have been doing.

Thankyou and any questions please feel free to email me on the class email
