Home Learning

Hello Kestrel Class, this is our Home Learning page!


I will be uploading work onto this page every week for you to complete at home. You will see the link to your first two weeks below. There will be a plan for the week with activities for different subjects and links to worksheets/videos online. You can complete the work in your exercise book that we gave you on Friday. Remember to keep your presentation levels high and continue to use correct punctuation and spelling in all your work. I am sure your parents will be impressed with how well you are doing!


Have fun and take care Kestrels!

Hello Kestrel Class!

Hope you have had a lovely weekend, I have just uploaded next week's work for you to access below this message (Term 5, Week 5). I hope you are all ok and getting on alright at home. If you look below this week's work, you will see my very own 'litter bug', which was a project I set you last week! What do you think? I look forward to the thought of seeing you again soon; please continue to send across some photos of what you are getting up to!

Stay safe, 

Miss Paul heart

Miss Paul's Litter Bug - The Yellow-eyed Redips

The Yellow-eyed Redips - has 8 legs, wings, a tail and piercing yellow eyes!

What is special about the word REDIPS?  

CLUE: They are my favourite kind of insect... NOT!!!no


I would love to see your litter bugs - send some pictures to (Subject: F.A.O Miss Paul)

Hello Kestrel Class!

I have just uploaded your work for next week for you to have a look at. Next Friday is VE Day, so the activities this week (apart from maths) are all themed around WW2 and the VE Day celebrations! I would like to stress to all families that these are suggestions for activities to do with your children at home, however it is not an expectation to tick everything on this list off. Please do what works for you and your home learning schedules. Have fun and please do keep in touch, I love hearing from you.


Stay safe,

Hello Kestrel Class!

I hope you have had a lovely weekend...I have uploaded your new work for next week (Term 5, week 2) and have attached a couple of documents that you will need to look at to complete 2 of the activities. I hope you are enjoying the sunshine and the work I have set you so far. At some point this week, your parents will receive a phone call from me, or one of your siblings' teachers, just checking in with how things are going at home. I look forward to hearing all of your news laugh

Good morning Kestrel Class!
Happy Friday... I hope you have had a lovely Easter break at home with your families (hope you have enjoyed as much chocolate as me!) I have just uploaded next week's work for you to see under our 'Key Information - Home Learning Tasks' page, named 'Home Learning Term 5 Week 1'. I hope you enjoy the work I have set for you, please make sure you are pushing yourself to do your best in each activity, like I know you would in school. I look forward to seeing how you get on with it all.

Stay safe and have fun, 

Miss Paul smiley

Hello all!


I am wishing you and your families a Happy Easter! I hope you are all enjoying the beautiful sunshine this week. Remember you can email me to say hello or to share your pictures with me, I would love to hear from you. There are plenty of Easter and PE challenges that you could be exploring at home, keep your eyes peeled for more home learning soon. Have fun and stay safe. laugh

Hello Kestrels!


I hope you are enjoying your time at home with your families and are getting on well with your home learning activities! I have really enjoyed coming into school to work with some of our fellow Kestrel members; I have particularly enjoyed the Zumba classes in the morning and artwork in the afternoons. 

You should have your home learning tasks for this week already in your exercise books and I will be posting more activities for you soon to keep you busy over the coming weeks. If you would like to share your home learning with me (I would love to see it!) then please email and put my name in the subject box ‘FAO Miss Paul”. 


I hope you are all well and keeping safe smiley

What have I got left to cover in Maths?

If you are whizzing through the home learning work I have set for you, then I thought it would be useful for you to know what topics we have left to cover in maths. If you type in your year group and then one of the following topics, or a specific objective from the list below, you should find all the information required for you to learn it. Please do not worry about the amount of work left to cover, it is very likely these objectives will be revisited in school in September, just do what you can smiley

Useful websites: 
- Twinkl

- Whiterose Hub

- Third Space Learning: mathshub


Year 5: 


  • recognise the per cent symbol (%) and understand that per cent relates to ‘number of parts per 100’, and write percentages as a fraction with denominator 100, and as a decimal fraction
  • solve problems which require knowing percentage and decimal equivalents and those fractions with a denominator of a multiple of 10 or 25


Pupils should be taught to:

  • identify 3-D shapes, including cubes and other cuboids, from 2-D representations
  • know angles are measured in degrees: estimate and compare acute, obtuse and reflex angles
  • draw given angles, and measure them in degrees (°)
  • identify:
    • angles at a point and 1 whole turn (total 360°)
    • angles at a point on a straight line and half a turn (total 180°)
    • other multiples of 90°
    • use the properties of rectangles to deduce related facts and find missing lengths and angles
    • distinguish between regular and irregular polygons based on reasoning about equal sides and angles
    • identify, describe and represent the position of a shape following a reflection or translation, using the appropriate language, and know that the shape has not changed


Pupils should be taught to:

  • convert between different units of metric measure [for example, kilometre and metre; centimetre and metre; centimetre and millimetre; gram and kilogram; litre and millilitre]
  • understand and use approximate equivalences between metric units and common imperial units such as inches, pounds and pints
  • measure and calculate the perimeter of composite rectilinear shapes in centimetres and metres
  • calculate and compare the area of rectangles (including squares), including using standard units, square centimetres (cm²) and square metres (m²), and estimate the area of irregular shapes
  • estimate volume [for example, using 1 cm³ blocks to build cuboids (including cubes)] and capacity [for example, using water]
  • solve problems involving converting between units of time
  • use all four operations to solve problems involving measure [for example, length, mass, volume, money] using decimal notation, including scaling


Pupils should be taught to:

  • solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in a line graph
  • complete, read and interpret information in tables, including timetables

Year 6: 

Ratio and proportion:

Pupils should be taught to:

  • solve problems involving the relative sizes of 2 quantities where missing values can be found by using integer multiplication and division facts
  • solve problems involving the calculation of percentages [for example, of measures and such as 15% of 360] and the use of percentages for comparison
  • solve problems involving similar shapes where the scale factor is known or can be found
  • solve problems involving unequal sharing and grouping using knowledge of fractions and multiples

Highlighted objectives: we did cover some of these objectives at the end of Term 4, however some revision on these would be useful!

Pupils should be taught to:

  • draw 2-D shapes using given dimensions and angles
  • recognise, describe and build simple 3-D shapes, including making nets
  • compare and classify geometric shapes based on their properties and sizes and find unknown angles in any triangles, quadrilaterals, and regular polygons
  • illustrate and name parts of circles, including radius, diameter and circumference and know that the diameter is twice the radius
  • recognise angles where they meet at a point, are on a straight line, or are vertically opposite, and find missing angles
  • describe positions on the full coordinate grid (all 4 quadrants)
  • draw and translate simple shapes on the coordinate plane, and reflect them in the axes



Pupils should be taught to:

  • interpret and construct pie charts and line graphs and use these to solve problems
  • calculate and interpret the mean as an average
