I have sent home a range of work for you child to complete including maths, writing, grammar and punctuation and reading activities. As well as this, daily activities such as reading and practising times tables will be hugely beneficial for your child. When writing, can you please encourage your child to think carefully about using a wide range of punctuation and uplevelling their vocabulary – this has been a big focus in school this term, and they have made fantastic progress with this. I have listed below a range of websites which will help your child with their learning – they are full of good resources and will help to recap concepts.

With very best wishes,
On Thursday 31st October, Oak class went on an “Evacuee” themed trip to Buckfastleigh railway with Lady Modifords Y5/6. We looked at the wartime garden with its replica of an Anderson shelter. We also visited the war museum with old trains. Eventually, it was time to be evacuated. There were mixed emotions as we were waiting for the train. Finally, it was time to board the train on our journey to Totnes. On the train we ate our sandwiches and we played word games. When we arrived at Totnes, we had to wait for 15 minutes and we had a look at model trains on the platform. We then got back on the train ready for our return journey back to Buckfastleigh. We all had an amazing day and understood what it felt like to be real evacuees.
