Homework - Friday 18th September

Date: 18th Sep 2020 @ 1:54pm

Good afternoon Year 4!

There has been some super learning in year 4 this week, so well done!

This afternoon, you were all given homework (this will soon be transferred to the school website, and you will be informed when your log in details are ready).

Homework is set every Friday, and needs to be completed by the following Friday, which is when we will have a spelling test.

In case you have misplaced your homework - we have also attached it to this blog post for you.


Don't forget to log in to times table rockstars (https://ttrockstars.com/) where a tournament has begun. This tournment will end at 1.30pm on Friday. The class with the most points will earn some extra so golden time - good luck!

Note: If you have forgotten your log in, don't worry! Just let your teacher know and we can print it off for you.

Enjoy your weekend!

Congratulations Year 3! We have finally made it to the summer holidays! And what a year it has been...

5HW Outstanding Learners!

Date: 17th Jul 2020 @ 7:16pm

I had a wonderful time this afternoon being back in school for a special (socially distanced!) "afternoon tea" in the hall which Mrs Hughes, Mrs Thewlis and Miss Wolfenden organised for the teachers - although I've been in our classroom lots of times these past few weeks (it's looking very organised!), it really hit home today how strange a term this has been. I've so missed you all, and it's felt strange not saying goodbye before the summer holidays. I'm very glad we get to spend the first two days of term together to do some lovely activities and have a chance to properly say goodbye! I know you will have such a fantastic year with Miss Kenwell, Miss Fish and Miss Coulson in Year 6, but before we start thinking too much about that, let me just say...

Miss Wendt and I are so very proud of you 5HW. The way many of you have continued your learning from home has been fantastic, and you have shown such determination and resilience. I've loved seeing your work and reading your comments; you truly are outstanding learners.

Have a fantastic summer break, and I look forward to hearing all your news on Thursday 3rd September!

Congratulations Year 2!

Date: 17th Jul 2020 @ 6:28pm

Another week down and it is finally the summer holidays! Thank you to everyone who sent their learning in this week.

Congratulations on finishing Year 2, you are all wonderful.

We cannot wait to welcome you back to school in September.

Have a fun summer holiday, have a great time and stay safe!

See you soon, Miss Woodnett :)

Outstanding Learning + Surprise!

Date: 17th Jul 2020 @ 5:17pm

Good afternoon, 5CB. Can you believe that we have finally reached the end of our journey? And what a strange way to end it. I am so proud to have been your teacher this year - I have loved every second of it (even when you gave me a headache!) 

I was so happy to speak to you all on the phone this week. There were only a couple of you I couldn't reach, so here is a little reminder of what was said:

When we go back to school in September, you will spend the first two days with myself and Mrs Turner, in our 5CB classroom. We will be able to do some fun games and activities together. Then you will move into Year 6, where your new Teacher will be Miss Thornton and your new Teaching Assistant will be Miss Taylor. Miss Thornton has emailed your grown up a leaflet, with some exciting Summer activities inside.

I'm moving year groups too this year, and will be teaching Year 4! I'm nervous and excited, just like I imagine all of you are. 

Here are this week's outstanding learners: 








Lilly C







Lily L















... Yes you've guessed, each of you are outstanding learners! 

Instead of posting your work this week, I have created something for you. Since we couldn't get a class photo this year, I've made one for us! 

(I apologise if I got your eye colour wrong, all I had to go off was my memory and your photograph from our door!)

I hope you like it! 


Enjoy your Summer!

Miss Brookes 

Reading Plus WINNERS (Week 15)

Date: 17th Jul 2020 @ 5:04pm

Good afternoon everyone! How has your Friday been?

I can't believe we've reached our final day of reading challenges! You have all worked so well, well done everyone.

Here are our winners:

Most Lessons Completed: Ganesa (with 10 lessons! Well done).

Most Words Read: Alissia  (with 13,113 words! Well done).

This week's challenge was to read 5 books, and share a new word you have learnt. The winners are:

Ganesa (with her new words: conscience, nuisance and puncture)

Victoria (with her new phrase 'rapid eye movement' (REM), she then shared that we have different stages of sleep - light sleep, deep sleep and REM). 

Well done you two!

A huge well done to everyone that managed to access reading plus this week: 









Well done to Ganesa and Victoria for completing today's 'famous person challenge.' The answer was: William Shakespeare, who was born in April 1564. They shared that he is a famous English playwright, poet and actor. They also shared that he was regarded as the greatest writer in the English language, and that he was the world's greatest dramatist! 


You have all worked so incredibly hard this year! We are so proud of the progress you have made, and your determination. 

Don't forget to ask your grown up to check their email, where they will find a 'transition booklet' from Year 6. It has some Summer activities in that you can do.

Enjoy the break, and we look forward to seeing you all in September.

Miss Brookes and Mrs Hodges.

Good Morning Everyone, 

Sorry for the late blog but we're in school trying to sort through the classroom!

It's a bit sad today to think that if we were together in school we would be doing lots of fun activites together. Anyway today all four us in Reception have set you a task. We would like you to think about a memory from reception. The memory might be a book we did, experinece, topic that we did or an area that you have enjoyed playing in. We want you to share this memory as a picture, painting, model or just a video telling us. 

Here are our memories...

Mrs Iqbal - I loved the story 'Ready Steady Mo.' I enjoyed the actions we did when retelling the story and when we learnt the Mobot!

Miss Wiliams - I enjoyed the story Chicken Licken. I loved it when we dressed up as farm animals for World Book Day and went into the hall and shared a story with our Year 4 buddies.

Mrs Cooper - I enjoyed World Book Day celebrations. I loved dressing up as Chickin Licken. 

Miss Cogger - I enoyed it when we went to Blue Planet Aquariu and saw all the animals under the sea. 

We can't wait to see your memories!

Love Mrs Iqbal, Miss Williams, Mrs Cooper and Miss Cogger.

Good morning on our final day of term!

Our winners from yesterday's quiz are: Faith, Naomi, Maddison , Ganesa and Heer who all found out that the flower is that of the Dominican Republic. Naomi and Maddison did some extra research and found out that is a very rare cactus and can only be found in certain parts of the island . 

Well done to all of our winners over the last few months   - it has been great to hear from you , and anyone who has been getting involved with the fun at home. We'll have a little break from the quiz over the summer holidays ready for fresh learning in September.

I hope you all have a relaxing and enjoyable summer holiday. smiley

We have had a super week this week in Green bubble. We have created dangling spiders, weaved spider webs and made moving snails. Aswell as learning about money in Maths and practising our writing and phonics skills! We have even been learning yoga moves by joining in with Cosmic Kids!

Wow! Green bubble you have been fantastic! Mrs Blakeley and I are very proud of you all!

Here are some photos from our bubble this week.


It has been lovely to spend time with you before the summer break and we are very much looking forward to seeing all the children back at school after the summer holidays!

We wish you all a fantastic summer, take care and we will see you soon.

Friday 17th July

Good morning, everyone!
You can find all of today's learning on: 


We have finally made it to the end of the school year. What a strange way to end it. I find it hard to believe that we have been off school since the 20th March (with some of you staying in school and working super hard!). It feels like yesterday, when we were creating our Greek Landscapes.

We are so excited to get to teach you in those first two days of term - it wouldn't feel right, not spending some time with you before you enter year 6! We both loved speaking to you all on the phone this week - it brightened our days.

Well done to Ganesa and Victoria for completing yesterday's famous person challenge. The person was Marie Curie, and she was born on the 7th November 1876. She is famous because she was the first person to win a noble prize in both physics and chemistry. A fun fact they shared is that she was a World War 1 hero! 

I will post the answers for today's famous person, when I post the reading challenge results. Here is today's picture: 


Don't forget to email your answer, and all of your learning, to y5homelearning@ravensbury.manchester.sch.uk

Remember to check your class blog this afternoon, where we will celebrate some of your outstanding learning.

Enjoy your Friday,

Miss Brookes and Mrs Hodges. 

Friday's learning in Year One!

Hello Year 3!

Well it's our very last day in school this term - in what has been such a strange year. I don't think any of us ever expected this is how it would end!

I'll be back with a celebration blog post later, and to say goodbye, but for now here is our last Padlet!

Maths Daily Challenge – Friday 17th July

Date: 16th Jul 2020 @ 10:30pm

Friday 17th July


Good Morning Nursery… it’s Fantastic Friday and the last day of term!

I am really going to miss posting your learning on our blog but there are lots of super challenges on here, so have a look back through all the challenges and you can repeat some of your favourite ones over the holidays!


So to finish our week of using everyday language relating to money we are going to look at some coins!



Ask a grown-up to help you look at some different coins.

What numbers, colours and shapes can you see?

Have a go at creating some coin rubbings by placing some coins under a piece of paper and rub over them with a crayon.


Challenge: Can you name and label the different coins?


Now have a go at competing this game: See if you can sort the coins and place the correct ones into the money box.



Well done, you are a superstar learner!

I hope you have a great summer and we are looking forward to seeing you back at school in September!

Take care

Miss Heritage
