Thornham 15th June

Hello Thornham class!

It seems strange calling you Thornham class at the moment since we are  learning in different places – some of you are learning at home, some of you are in school learning with me in the red bubble and some in the yellow bubble.

However, welcome to a new week for learning!  Here is this weeks home learning grid which has lots more great activities for you to have a go at.

WB 15-6-20

I hope you enjoy your learning this week, please let me know if you have any concerns or need help. As usual I can be contacted by email [email protected]  or by telephone via the school office  773087. 

As I am in school, I may take a little longer to get back to you but I will try and reply the same day/evening.



Continue with the power maths next lesson  and  practising counting backwards in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s.

You can also continue practising times tables – 2’s, 5’s and 10’s http://www.tacklingtables.co.uk 

If you have finished completing the Power Maths book lessons, you could have  a go at the maths activities on  https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize and of course the activities I have set up on https://www.educationcity.com



Spellings – practise spellings everyday. You might want to also practise spelling the days of the week too, as these are in the ‘Meerkat Mail’ text!

Continue to internalise (learn) the text  with your actions so you are very confident with the story and characters. Retell the story to a member of your family and tell it with lots of actions and expression.

Later in the week you will need to create a story map for ‘Meerkat Mail’. I have already completed one in school which is attached – you might want to use some of my ideas for pictures etc.

You will also need:
