Hello Room 7!  
Welcome to your class page!  I am so looking forward to being your teacher this year and having lots of fun along the way!

Good morning boys and girls!

I have attached a link to a new set of spelling words if you are looking for extra words to work on. These words are for Years 3 and 4, which is the English equivalent of Primary 4 and 5 here. This means some of these words are extra tricky but I remember how much you like a challenge so thought some of you would enjoy this! Remember you can use any active spelling strategy of your choice to learn these words and it is also beneficial for you to use the words to create your own sentences or silly story. Remember to try and up level your vocabulary to make the sentence as exciting as you can!

Good morning everyone. I hope you are all able to enjoy this beautiful sunshine. I have found some great activities that are available throughout each week .
PE with Joe Wicks on You Tube
Available weekdays at 9am, but you can visit anytime to view workouts. I've been doing these with Luca and Marco and they're great fun.
Wildlife with Steve Backshall on Facebook
Wednesdays at 9.30am for answering your wildlife, biology, conservation and geography questions. Tomorrow is World Earth Day so Steve's Q and A will be about freshwater ecosysystems. He says 'the crazier the better' so get your crazy questions posted to him.
Science with Maddie Moate on You Tube 
Weekdays 11am where Maddie and Greg chat about science and nature. I loved learning about the Rafflesia Kerii. 
Dance with Oti Mabuse on Facebook
You can perfect your dance moves with Oti every day at 11.30am but you can view the routines at any time. 
Maths with Carol Vorderman 
Free access to her maths website:
www.themathsfactor.com
Music with Myleene Klass on You Tube
This is posted twice a week but can be viewed anytime. This is great fun boys and girls. You can learn about 
music techniques and learn how to play any pop song.
Storytime with David Walliams 
Free story each day at 11am on his website:
www.worldofdavidwalliams.com
There's also some great activities to try related to his books. Could you design your own 'World's Worst Child?'
Use the link on the site for tips and other great ideas.


I remember how creative and artistic you all are so I thought you would enjoy creating some of your own board games. I have attached some links to different board game templates that you can either print and draw/write on or you can edit them on the computer before printing. You may even just like to have a look at some of the different templates and use them as inspiration to create your own game completely from scratch. As an extra challenge, you could even create a set of instructions or booklet to accompany your game. I hope you enjoy this activity, if you choose to do it, and have lots of fun playing your finished game with your family. When we return to school, you can even bring in your game to show your friends and we could have a little games afternoon.
