Dear Parents, 

The children now have access to TT Rock Stars. Their user names and passwords are at the front of their home school diaries. They do need to put in the school name - Uphill before they can log on.

TT Rock Stars is a great resource to help children learn their times tables.

This is an additional website that the children can use to help them consolidate their understanding of times tables.

Their main homework continues to be Sumdog and please be aware that we set both maths and English activities weekly.

Our New project 

Our project this term is called, 'Were the Vikings Vicious?' and our big idea is chronological significance.

Over the next two terms we will finding out many amazing facts about the Vikings such as where they came from, why they invaded Britain and how they get here. We will also have the opportunity to meet Bjorn Magnusson, (a 'real' Viking warrior) and re-enact a beach raid. 

Want something to keep the children entertained over the half term break?

Weston Museum is holding a history week over the half term break. There is a Viking Explorers Workshop on February 20th 2020.

We will also meeting Ben the explorer who will be telling lots of black rhino facts. 


We have been working hard on our project about rhinos and discovering lots of interesting facts. 

Project Launch

This morning we had a visit from Ben the Explorer, who came to talk to all of us about the exciting work that he is doing on rhino conservation. Ben has been all over the world working on conservation projects. He talked about some of his previous adventures such as paddle boarding down the Blue Nile in Ethiopia and diving along British coastline to highlight the plastic peril. 

Currently, he is working in South Africa helping to protect injured and orphaned rhinos. Over the next weeks, we will be in contact with Ben finding out more about his work, asking questions and learning lots of new facts.
