Hello Hound Tor

I hope you all had a good weekend.

Thank you for your emails and pictures of you busy working and it was good to see the ‘shout-outs’ from some of you when you watched the live ‘Habitats’ lesson on Thursday morning. I don’t know about you, but I found I was watching the messages scrolling on the right hand side when I should have been watching the lesson!

Keep working hard, and I think we get a bit more sunshine back this week. Hurray!

Love from Miss C x

Heidi’s scarecrow   Heidi and Anya made this scarecrow to say ‘thank you’ to the NHS for all the hard work they’re doing.

Ailsa’s art   Ailsa looked at Andy Goldsworthy’s work and  experimented with lots of different foliage she found in the garden.

Stanley’s snake!  Stanley, our wildlife expert, saw this adder and managed to get a picture. Impressive!

I hope you all had a good week. Here are some more suggestions that will work well for learning at home.

Here’s an idea from Ailsa for creative writing.

She suggests you pick an object, from your bedroom, from somewhere in the house or from outside and then write a story around it. Think about using different fronted adverbials to start your sentences eg. All of a sudden, to my surprise, out of the corner of my eye and let your imagination go!

Listen to a story

  • Every day at 11am, you can listen to one of David Walliams’ World’s Worst Children stories. They’re well worth listening to and here’s the link:


  • Shoo Rayner is live on YouTube every day with ‘Lockdown Storytime.’ He reads a story, talks about where the ideas came from and then shows you how to draw the characters.

Religious Eduction
It is nearly Easter and this is what we’d be learning about in class at this time:
RE – Easter

Lego ideas
For those of you who enjoy a bit of Lego work, have a look at this:

Edinburgh Zoo webcams
A suggestion from Mrs Ratcliffe to check out the webcams for a variety of animals.

Finally, please don’t forget to watch Newsround. It’s important to keep yourself informed.


Tuesday 24th March
A few more ideas here.  Some more home-learning ideas 

Thursday 19th March
Hello Hound Tor!

It feels a bit strange talking to you via a computer, rather than being with you in the classroom, but this is how it’s going to be for a while, so we’d better get used to it!

First of all, I hope you and your families are all well and I hope you stay healthy and happy.

Here are some ideas to keep you busy over the next week.

Learning at home ideas – week 1

You may well have other things you’d like to do eg. make a powerpoint presentation on something that interests you and then you can show that to the rest of the class when we get back to school or become an expert in a subject of your choice (Millie – you might like to teach us all about pandas!), so please keep yourselves busy.

I will be adding information and ideas to this page and I’ll always include a date so you can see when new information has been added.

Take care and bye for now!

Spring Term

The term ended with a very enjoyable Easter Service at St. Mary’s. Well done to all the children who took part. The singing was beautiful and Hound Tor did a fabulous job of re-telling the Easter story. It was clear that the children had put in a lot of hard work to learn their lines and speak slowly and clearly, and the audience appreciated the huge effort they made.



We’ve had two cricket coaching sessions from Alex and we look forward to continuing that in the summer term. Our batting and fielding skills have definitely improved.

Hound Tor Paignton Zoo Trip
We had a fabulous day out on Tuesday 8th March when we joined Mr Parkin’s class from Meavy and spent the day at Paignton Zoo. There was so much to see and do, we had no difficulty filling the five hours we were there.



The drizzle and grey skies failed to dampen our enthusiasm and we have such fantastic memories of the day, whether we were jumping out of our skin when the saltwater crocodile lunged at us, gazing up at the roaring lion or being entertained by the delightful orangutan mother and baby.
