Dear parents and carers,

Welcome to week 3 of the new Summer term. Please see our latest activity ideas on the link below:

Activities for Maple Class



Seeing Other People Wearing Masks


Dear parents and carers,

We hope you and your families are keeping well? It has been lovely to speak to you all – finding out about all the interesting activities you have been doing with your children.  Please let us know when we call you, if there is anything in particular you would like us to provide for you – work or websites connected to particular topics or things that particularly interest your child. We will do our best to find something to support your child’s learning.

These are unprecedented times for all of us and mental well-being is at the forefront of everyone’s mind. In class, the children have enjoyed relaxation exercises with Moovlee. This is a monkey who takes us through calming, breathing, mediation and yoga exercises. Here is one link for you: But please simply Google ‘Moovlee’ to find lots more wonderfully relaxing videos.

It would be lovely if you could email some photos of your child’s activities, for example of any baking they have done, models they have built or plants they are growing. These can be sent to the school office or our school’s twitter account on Thank you for all the pictures that have already been sent in. It is lovely to see how our students and their families get creative at home.

We are pleased that you are finding our suggested activities, websites and home learning packs useful. Home learning pack 2 will be on its way to you very soon. Watch out for the postman. J

Best wishes

Miss Retzlaff and Mrs Perry

Here are a few more suggestions for activities you could do as part of your home learning sessions:

  • Draw or paint a self portrait or a member of your family. Why not get everyone in your family to draw someone and then put the resulting pictures together to create a family portrait?
  • Practise your counting skills by adding up coins playing online maths games on
  • Write a review of one of your home-made meals or bakes.
  • Use Lego or other construction kits to make a fantastic home for an animal of your choice. Then talk or write about how this home is suitable for the animal.
  • Practice putting groups of words into alphabetical order - you could use the names on food tins and boxes.
  • Measure different parts of your body - hand, foot, knee to floor, shoulder to fingertip. Then compare these measurements with those of another family member
  • Check out the websites and keep up to date with current news stories and global developments
  • Design a new chocolate bar or sweet - decide on the ingredients and design the wrapper. Why not have a go at actually making your chocolate bar or sweet, putting it in your wrapper and presenting it to someone in your family. We are sure they will love it.
  • Make a model playground using empty boxes, straws, natural materials you find in your garden and other craft materials you are sure to have at home.
  • Please take photographs of how you learn at home and post them to the school office or on our school’s twitter account on




Printable Rainbow Certificate

Dear parents and carers,

Updated 21.04.2020

We hope you are keeping safe and well. Did you have a good Easter break? We have certainly been blessed with good weather. It almost seems strange that we are now officially back at school, given that we are still not leaving our homes.

We would like to continue to support you with home learning by providing you with additional ideas and activities that you can carry out in the comfort of your own four walls or during your daily exercise outings. Please also feel free to continue completing the sheets in your home learning pack. The activities we provided cover the areas of learning we focused on during the spring term as well as some of the things we were going to move on to during the summer term. Should you feel your child needs more support or practice in a particular area you could search for relevant activities or games on the websites we listed on our Maple class page.  

We are, of course, fully aware that you are all having to manage many different challenges, so please regard all our suggestions as a guide only. It is entirely up to you how many of the activities you wish to carry out. We all learn so much just by spending time together -  this being one of the very few positives to come out of these difficult times we are in. That said, do feel free to keep a record of any activities you do carry out in the form of written work, art work or photographs. We would love to share and talk about your child’s efforts once we are back at Woodside.

We will soon be calling you on a weekly basis and we very much look forward to hearing how you are all getting on. We miss our Maple class team and can’t wait to get together and learning again soon. In the meantime, may we wish you all the very best and that you stay safe and well!

With kindest regards,

Mrs Perry and Miss Retzlaff


 Our suggestions for you:

  • You could use real coins to make the prices for food you have bought or work out how much two or three items of food cost altogether. Another fun activity is to use an online shopping website to shop for ingredients for a chosen recipe.
  • Set up a tuck shop – Your child could have a daily allowance and a price list for the items available. Each day they could then shop for their snacks, working out change and how many items they can afford.
  • How many (star jumps, hops, bounces etc.) can you do in one minute? Why not have family competitions?
  • Do a pencil drawing of some fruit or vegetables or your favourite thing in the house or garden.
  • Go on a Spring treasure hunt – Your child could write down or draw things they relate to Spring and then go in the garden or the local park to see if they can find them and tick them off. The Pinterest website is bursting with printable templates and ideas, for example
  • Practice cutting food into ½, ¼ and ¾.
  • Read a range of different genres of books- traditional tale, non-fiction, poetry, science fiction, biography or a modern classic. There are also lots of free audio book options available online. For example, please check out
  • Learn to play a new card game or even create your own board game.
  • Do a jigsaw puzzle with more pieces than you usually do.
  • Grow a bean/ sunflower and keep weekly measurements and a photo diary of it growing. The website is full of wonderful ideas for science experiments and craft projects. If you scroll to the bottom of the page, you will find a link to ‘Gardening with kids’ which includes the observation sheet on the right.
  • Follow a recipe using a food you don't usually eat - then try it and give feedback. This links in well with reading scales, using units of measurements for weight and capacity as well as understanding and following cooking times.
  • Practise reading and writing the time by asking your child throughout the day what the time is. You could challenge them further by asking him questions such as ‘What will the time be in one hour, half an hour etc.? ‘How long did this film last? ‘In how many minutes will it be … o’clock?’
  • Practice a new life skill - sewing on a button, wrapping a parcel, tying shoe laces, folding clothes etc.
  • Learn a song or poem by heart and perform it as a family. Then choose your five favourite words and put them into interesting sentences. is a lovely website for songs and poems from around the world.
  • Design a new comic strip character and make up an adventure for him. There are brilliant free comic strip designers available online, for example
