A little message from the staff to all our families

Player Loading...
Good Morning, I hope you all had a lovely weekend. You have all been working so hard and I am very proud of you. Hopefully you have all managed to watch the video at the top of the page from all of us to all of you at home. Please remember to use the Duolingo logins that you were given, if you have forgotten them then please email me also remember to try and go on TTRS daily to improve your time table knowledge. 

Please remember to keep emailing me with pictures of your work, it would be great to see more work from different people. If you need any extra support then you can also email to help. Use the message board to keep in touch with each other.

I am in school this week with key worker children so I may not respond to my emails straight away but I will respond as quick as I can. I will be setting a new TTRS tournament this week and will let you know when it begins and who it is against.

Stay safe and miss you all
Miss Smith x

P.S. Here is a link to youtube where you can listen to a variety of celebrities read James and the Giant Peach aloud, I know some of you were given this book and some of you weren't. It is one of my favourite stories by Roald Dahl!

James and the Giant Peach being read aloud
Week 7 - 18th May - 22nd May

This week's Maths is about fractions, we didn't have the opportunity to begin our fractions topic in school however this should begin to refresh your fraction knowledge from Year 2. Please email (rebekah.smith@hunsletstmarys.co.uk) if you find something particularly challenging and I will provide some help and guidance. Fractions can be tricky but I know that you will give it a good try and that is all I ask of you!

RE - Reflection opportunity

Collect from The Sixth Sunday of Easter

God our redeemer,

you have delivered us from the power of darkness

and brought us into the kingdom of your Son:

grant, that as by his death he has recalled us to life,

so by his continual presence in us he may raise us to eternal joy;

through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord,

who is alive and reigns with you,

in the unity of the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.

Can I please remind you during these times to Stay Safe Online. I know I am asking you to use different websites and different links on a daily basis to help you with your home learning but please make sure you are being safe and only following the links that I have posted. Also remember the discussions we have had in class on how we stay safe;
  • Only add your real friends to online games
  • Do not talk to anyone you don't know
  • Do not give your personal information (such as your school, your whole name, your age, your address)
  • Only use games and apps that are appropriate for your age
  • Tell an adult if you see something that worries you
  • Talk to your adults about what you are doing on the interenet so they know you are being safe

Welcome to Topaz Class page!
Here you will find a variety of activities to support your learning whilst at home. These activities will include English activities, Maths activities, activities from other areas of the curriculum and also fun activities to support your mental well-being during these difficult times. No new concepts will be introduced but all work will involve revising things we have already looked at within class or provide you with prompts for your own writing.

I will continue to also upload useful documents, websites and links. In the packs that I have sent home, you will find logins for TTRS, EPIC! Reading and Duolingo.

It would be fantastic to see some completed activities or some completed work from our learning packs, if you would like to share your work then please send a photograph via email to myself:
If sending photographs then please can I ask that they are sent without children's faces in them in order to maintain our high levels of safeguarding.
In addition to photographs being sent, I will welcome any emails that you send that highlights any worries or concerns that you might have. I will access my emails daily and will respond to any email between the hours of 8:45am and 4pm, any emails sent outside of these times will be addressed the following day. Please do get in touch if you need us. The school and myself are here to help everyone through this difficult time.
