Hi Parents,

This week is children's mental health week. Place to be have resources for this week. Have a look to see what is on offer -use it if interested. Click the link on the picture if that does not work try this:

Have a look at the end of the class pages and try Miss Ross's Mulberry room to help support your child with their phonics and reading and Miss Green's Whole School Class of Art and see what you can create.

If you need any support or have any questions, please email me at



If you can’t access any of the online learning or what a break from online learning please call school and arrange to collect a paper pack.


Please also use this opportunity to support your child with skills that are not within the National Curriculum and can be done as a family, such as: 


Cooking - great for incorporating maths: weight, capacity, cooking times, temperature, addition, subtraction etc.  There are some simple recipes on Teams and in the paper packs to collect from school.  

Cleaning - they learn to contribute to household, skills they'll use the rest of their lives, learn to be responsible and learn to value of their environment and home.

Family time - go out for a daily walk, talk about what you can see in the environment, read signs etc. This is great for physical and mental health and also helps to improve your child's language development. Play card or board games if you have any at home. Make up your own games and write down the rules of how to play it.


We'd love to see pictures of any extra curricular activities that you do!


Take care, stay safe and we hope to back together in the classroom soon.

Home learning - Volcano Science experiment

Still image for this video
So many kids are having fun doing home learning. We are so grateful to their parents for the help and support they provide. Watch Keeva, with her older sister Keira, doing a Science experiment; the girls made an exploding, erupting volcano and learnt about the classic chemical reaction between an acid and a carbonate. Well done, girls!
If you would like to contact Mrs Rendell, our class email address is

Our class took part in the Royal Astronomical Society reading and drawing Christmas extravaganza via zoom. The children joined author and illustrator Nathan Bryon and Dapo Adeola for an out-of-this-world event about their amazing picture book Look Up. The children heard the story and then had a chance to ask questions. Check out our drawing of the lovable, space-obsessed main character, a girl called Rocket.

Last term we learnt about Bellingham and its history. We created booklets, which include lots of interesting factual information about different places in Belligham.
