As this Friday (19th June) would have been our annual school Sports Day, this week's topic web is all about SPORTS. This theme is designed to get you thinking about all things sporty. As always, the topic web contains a brilliant variety of activities, so that there definitely is something for everyone. Whatever year group you are in, you can work together on all aspects of the topic theme - just select the activities from the topic web that catch your eye. You can complete them on your own, with your brother/sister, or together as a family.
Thanks to all the children and parents who regularly send things through to us via our GMail accounts - we have really enjoyed hearing about (and seeing) some of the projects and learning you have done for our Oceans project. From beach cleans to fact files, poems to sculptures, you really have got stuck in to this fantastic topic.
As always, in addition to the topic-web work, Mr Willis, Miss Ivey and Miss Walton have set you Maths Learning, English Learning and another HEARTSMART activity for you to do.
See the notes below the topic web.

HOME LEARNING SPORTS TOPIC PAGE
Over this next week we would love to hear from everyone in our classes, all about what you have been up to this week, whether you have completed any of the teacher challenges, created a cheerleader routine, or had your own 'Lockdown Sports Day'.
Don't forget you can email us to ask questions about any aspect of your Home Learning.
Lots of your work and photos appear in the galleries in each of the topic folders on the 'Home Learning' page (under the parents tab) on the MOSPS website, so check them out to see what your friends are getting up to and maybe get some ideas.
It is so important that you all keep giving yourself writing practice in addition to the grammar work we have set below. Perhaps you could write a sports story, a fact file on a famous sportsperson, or a persuasive piece explaining why football, or cricket is the best sport ever.We would love to see some of the writing you complete as part of our Sports topic - you can send us photos of any writing you do via Gmail.
This week we have set you another set of English tasks. There are three challenge levels (Green is the least challenging, Red is the most challenging). You could try to complete all three. There are vocabulary definitions too, to help you out, and the answers for your parents. See below for the challenges.
Once again, we have uploaded a reading challenge for you to complete. This week there are differentiated comprehension activities linked to our Sports topic. Just choose the level of comprehension that best suits you - one, two, or three stars.
Sports Reading Comprehensions
Key Stage 1 (For those children working below age-related expectations for reading):
This month would have seen Britain's annual tennis Grand Slam tournament, take place, so we have found you a comprehension task all about Wimbledon.
Key Stage 2
This month would have seen Britain's annual tennis Grand Slam tournament, take place, so we have found you a comprehension task all about Wimbledon. (There is a one star, two star, or three star challenge to choose from, so just choose the challenge to suit you):
There are also some sports-related 60-second Reading comprehensions too - don't forget to read the guidance document before trying them.
Once again, thank you to all of you who have been doing your My Maths tasks each week. Most of you have been getting some super scores, but a few of you are still slipping under the 80% pass rate.
Remember, if you don't reach 80%, then do the practice activity before giving the task another go.
This Week's My Maths:
All pupils have been set a range of different tasks on My Maths. These will have a start date of June 15th
Don’t forget they can use the ‘Practice’ page first so they know what to do. It might be useful to have some paper for jottings.
In addition to the My Maths Tasks, there are also the brilliant White Rose Daily Maths tasks (with video tutorials). They are clear and challenging and well worth a look to keep your maths skills in tip-top condition.
