Iveson Farewell Message

Good Morning Everyone,

I know this is the week when we should be in school celebrating, reminiscing and saying our fond farewells to one another. However, due to the current Lock-down situation we still find ourselves in different Bubbles. So Mr Edwards, Mrs Weaver and myself decided it would be nice if you could do a piece of writing and Graffiti Art to communicate your experiences of Iveson Primary to one another.

Here are examples by Keane and Ynes to give you some ideas. You can access the template on Google Classroom or What's App a photo of your work to the Office and we will create a collection of Farewell Messages on the Blog.

We look forward to reading and sharing your work
Mrs Ord, Mr Edwards and Mrs Weaver

Memories and last farewells

As this is your last week we thought you would like to write about your memories of being at Iveson, and to write a message to share with a friend or member of staff.  Download the template to write your memory on and your last farewell. Email, WhatsApp, or add to Google classroom so we can share them.  We are really looking forward to reading them.

From Mrs Ord

BBC Bitesize

Morning all.

Well this is a strange way to be spending the last day of term.

Here is today's BBC Daily Bitesize Learning.

Maths is a Weekly Maths Challenge, English is comparing texts and writing from the perspective of a character and then a Music lesson.

Enjoy a week's rest and don't forget to keep writing in those diaries - you're creating a primary source of history.

Good Morning Everyone,

Here is the link to today's Daily BBC lesson. Maths is something you need to consolidate before moving to Secondary School - converting and simplifying, English write a letter of thanks and Computing focuses on Gaming.

Remember to use your Purple Mash account and practice your Coding.

Good Morning,

Here is your link for today's BBC Learning. For the English, write a final edited letter of thanks to someone who has supported you during Lockdown. Your letter should have at least two paragraphs, contain a range of punctuation and give detail of why you are saying thank-you.

Don't forget to add artwork as a border or as a picture.

Enjoy the sunshine today

BBC Bitesize

Good Morning everybody,

Here is your link to BBC Bitesize Daily Learning. Maths is multiplying decimals by integers (make sure you can tell an adult what an integer is by the end of the lesson), English is fantastic for you all today - using semi-colons and the Geography lesson looks at natural resources.

I will post more on Google Classrooms.
Remember to get some fresh air, exercise and take the time to read.

Guiness World Record TTRockStars

Have you got what it takes to become a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title holder?

We are inviting you to attempt a Guinness World Records title by answering as many times tables questions correctly as you can
in one minute.
Guinness World Records has created a new title - Highest score achieved on 'Times Tables Rock Stars' in one minute - and we
are looking for players to aim for this special accolade.
It's simple: get a world-beating score in a Studio game, make sure it's captured in a video and send a link to that video to by the end of Thursday 4th June (11:59pm GMT).


Good Morning everybody,

I hope you had a good weekend. It's the last week of the half term so you break up on Friday for a week.

This morning's Maths is multiplying and dividing decimals, English - you are familiar with metaphors and similes but hyperbole is something new to you and finally History is Henry VIII.

Have a good day
Mrs Ord

BBC Bitesize

Good Morning Everyone,

Once more, a beautiful sunny spring morning. Or it may even be summer; you can research that for me - when does summer begin?

Today's Bitesize Maths is finding fractions of amounts, English is writing a recount and today's DT is related to fast cars, parachutes and rockets. Make sure you have adult supervision if you are doing the experiments.

Enjoy your day
Mrs Ord

Wednesday, 13 May 2020


Good Morning Everyone,

Today's English writing is to write a debate so think of the one we did about Michael's parents taking him on a journey round the world in Kensuke's Kingdom. Maths is dividing by fractions by intergers - refer to your CGP book if you need to and finally a Science lesson on how living things adapt to their environment.

Enjoy the sunshine and when you get outside observe closely plants and birds and think how they have adapted to suit their environment.

Have a great day
Mrs Ord

Tuesday, 12 May 2020

BBC Bitesize

Morning Everyone,

It looks to be a sunny warm day today to lift your spirits.

Today's learning looks to be challenging in all three subjects; Maths - multiplying fractions by fractions, English punctuation in speech which can be tricky to remember and the Geography lesson is the impact of plastics on our environment.

Do remember to roll your sleeves up and get some sunshine on your face and arms to enable your body to produce Vitamin D.

Until tomorrow, Stay Safe

Good Morning Everybody,

I hope you had a fabulous weekend and managed to watch and listen to WW2 veterans and their experiences. 

This morning's Maths is multiplying and dividing fractions, English is report writing and then History is Ancient Egypt.

The weather is a lot different today, so wrap up warm and remember to get some daily fresh air and exercise.

VE Day memories

Good Afternoon Everyone,

You might like to use this website tomorrow and think about your knowledge and understanding from your learning about WW2 and the memories  the people on this link want to share with you.

BBC Bitesize

Good Morning Everybody,

I hope you and your families are keeping well. Once again the sun shines for us; make sure you get outside and keep looking closely at how plants (including trees) are changing. One of the fastest changing plants to watch is the dandelion, so make some detailed drawings of them at different stages of their lifecycle. These can be added to your Lockdown Diary.

Anyhow, back to Bitesize! Maths is adding and subtracting mixed number; remember to convert to improper fractions with the same denominator. English is linked to the fantastic author, Malorie Blackman and there is a Computing lesson on algorithms. After completing that lesson you can access your Purple Mash account and do some coding.

Tomorrow is VE Day (a Bank Holiday) and I am going to post plenty of activities on Google Classrooms.

Have a super day
Mrs Ord

BBC Bitesize

Good Morning everyone,

Once again a beautiful sunny morning to keep our spirits up.

Today's Bitesize Maths is fractions, the English is something you can all use in your writing; relative clauses and the Science lesson is on plant reproduction. When you go outside, make some careful observations of the flowers in your garden (including weeds) and see if you can relate your science lesson to what you see. You could draw a detailed sketch of different flowers in your Lockdown Diary.

Enjoy your day
Mrs Ord

Daily Bitesize

Good Morning Everyone,

When the sun shines, doesn't it make a difference? So, make sure you get some 'outdoors time', either sitting in the garden or going for a walk.

Here is today's BBC Bitesize link with fractions in Maths (remember the common denominator to help you order and compare fractions), personification in English and interestingly a Geography lesson involving import and exports.

Take Care

Bitesize Learning

Good Morning,

I hope everyone had a good weekend.

Please find the link above for your daily BBC Bitesize lesson. Today's English is analysing a descriptive setting, your Maths for the day is fractions and History is a topic you covered in Year 3, The Egyptians.

Make sure you take your daily exercise. Just sitting outside listening to the birdsong can be really relaxing too; close your eyes and listen for how many different birds you can hear. Call this the New Tweets of the Day.

Good Afternoon everyone,

Following conversations with parents I have posted below a copy of the timetable we follow in Eagles class. This should help you to maintain some structure to your day. This is good for your mental well-being. Remember, that in a lesson, time is used for teachers to explain the work, class discussions take place and texts are read so there is no need to spend an hour and a half on your daily English task as you would do in school. This is the same for other lessons. 
Remember to write in your Lockdown Diary every few days (green exercise book) so that you have created your own primary history source of these unprecedented times. Use the ideas Flossie Albright included in her World War 2 Diary we began reading before school closed. 
At the bottom of the timetable I have included a few ideas for Art and DT.

Keep Safe everyone 
We do miss you all
Mrs Ord and Mr Edwards
