Daily Messages from your teacher during school closure:



Good Morning Acacia!

I hope you’ve had a lovely week and are ready for a (hopefully) sunny weekend! Thanks to those who have sent me their daily challenges this week. IT’s great to see you all still busy with work!

Today, your challenge is simply to RELAX! Have a day/afternoon off and maybe have a movie afternoon. If you want to, you could write me a little movie review for the film you chose to watch.

Have a great day and have a great weekend. I will see you on Monday for the achievement assemblies!

How your child can support their progress at home


  • Ask your child about their individual targets. All children should be using vocabulary to support the reader (full stops, capital letters, commas and more!).
  •   Read through your child’s homework with them to ensure it makes sense before handing it in. 
  • Encourage your child to use a variety of vocabulary in their writing to make it more interesting.
  • Practice spellings every week and put them into sentences.
  • Read with your children daily and write in their reading record.


  • Ensure your child is confident with their times tables – this will support all areas of mathematical learning.
  • Ask your child daily what they have learnt in mathematics and see if they can explain the method they have learnt.  This will help to consolidate their learning.  It is also important that your child can apply their knowledge to word problems.
  • Use TTRockstars and SAM Learning to encourage hands- on learning.



Research their current topic in science and see if there are any cool experiments to do at home!

History/ Geography


Research their current topic in history or geography and help them to understand where these events would go on a timeline



We are learning about Judaism, so you could help them research more about the religion.



Explore a range of music with your child to see which they are most interested in.  You can also look at the origins of the music.
