Week Beginning 20th April

I hope you have enjoyed the sunshine during the Easter holidays and have not eaten too much chocolate!

On this Page you will find your tasks for this week. I will be setting daily Maths and English tasks but for Topic activities, you will be given a selection of activities to undertake during the course of the week. You may undertake these tasks in any order that you wish. Bear in mind that some will take longer than others to complete.

Remember, it is vital that you continue to read every day. I have uploaded all the reading books on the reading page, just look for your book band.

As always, I would love to see any work you have done. Any questions, I am here to help so please message me at mcohen@birklandsschool.co.uk


Good Morning Robins. This half-term the rest of the school are finding out about Greece and what is was like there a long time ago! This might sound really tricky but I thought we could have ago too!

I've shared the table of activities that the other classes are doing incase you would like to have a go. I'd recommend trying to find Greece on a map and finding some simple facts about Greece. I think activity sounds good fun too.

Out whole school topic for this half term is Greece/Ancient Greece.

Here are your Topic activities:

Good Morning Robins! Here is today's work:



Here is the trailer of this week's story 'Olympig' by Victoria Jamieson.
