Well done Swallows, we are really enjoying reading all your blogs and hearing about what you are up to; it sounds like there is lots of lovely creativity going on out there! Keep going, keep smiling, and keep sharing!
Don't forget, for anyone feeling bored, there are lots of lovely links for you to explore below. And if you need cheering up, have a look at some of the lovely pictures we took at Avon Tyrrell.
Take care of yourselves!

Hamilton Trust Literacy and Numeracy
These learning resources from Hamilton Trust are daily 1hr-long sessions that revise key Year 6 skills. The literacy ones are based on the Harry Potter novels and the maths ones focus on a different skill each day.
Maths Home Learning
As we continue to provide useful suggestions for home learning tasks we would like to direct you to the White Rose Maths website to enable you to continue to support your child’s mathematical learning whilst we are not at school.
The website is generating weekly sets of home learning for each academic year group (from EYFS-Y6) and tasks will be presented in a way in which your child is familiar with from their school lessons. Each session consists of a short video showing you clearly and simply how to help your child to complete the activity successfully, a worksheet of carefully selected questions and an answer sheets for the questions completed. We recommend that alongside the frequent use of Times Table Rockstars and/or NumBots you take the opportunity to use these fantastic sets of Maths resources (for your child’s year group only) at home to continue to support your child.
Please can you look at the daily short maths video, activity and answer sheet for each day. Then blog a quick line to tell us how you got on. (See our blog for more details.)
For a starter to each maths lesson, select from one of the sites below:
