It has been brought to my attention that "The Ox and the Yak" ebook on oxfordowl does not seem to be available on the Parents free ebooks list as it is on the Teachers. Apologies for this but we did not know the lists were different.

If you cannot load "The Ox and the Yak" as mentioned in this week's plan, please use "Rag the Rat" - a green level, Read, Write, Ink ebook instead which can be used in the same way.


I will ensure that any ebooks used in future planning are available for Parents.

Many thanks to those Parents who have been in touch to make me aware of this problem.


I hope you are all enjoying your lessons and having lots of fun!

Mrs Bray's E-Safety Task

Our very own Orchard Class, Beatrix Potter letters to our friends, families and staff.

Hello Children, Parents and Families,


Welcome back to Term 6 in Orchard Class. This term's new topic is all about "At the Seaside."

I hope this is a topic which the children will enjoy and be able to relate to a lot.

For those children and families who are staying at home over the next few weeks, I will keep adding each week's plans and activities to this webpage, as I have been doing previously, in order for you to continue learning from home as best we can.

If anyone is having difficulty printing anything off from home or can't access any of the learning, please do let me know by way of an email to and we can arrange for alternative means of sending or getting the resources to you. We are more than happy to print weekly plans, worksheets, powerpoints, quizzes etc off for you at school and have the learning packs ready in the office for collection during the week if this of help for any of you.


We look forward to welcoming some of you back into school tomorrow and hope to be able to at least see the rest of you at some point before the end of your first school year with us.

Keep working hard, we are very proud of every one of you - including Parents and Families.

Home Learning - Summer Term Week 1 Plan

Please find a plan below for learning activities for this week.

I will be posting plans on a weekly basis in order to keep this manageable for us all.

I have also attached all necessary learning documents/videos/books/powerpoints needed for this week's learning.

The plan below is a weekly timetable of suggested lessons for your child's education to continue as best as it can whilst having to spend this time at home. The plan is set out so that the daily Literacy and Maths activities develop through the week, however the afternoon's lessons can be done in any order if this helps.

I will also post a new set of Spellings each week as I know the children have been enjoying learning the list of words and having a spelling challenge each Friday - Please do let us know how the children get on with this.

As we all know, this is a very difficult time and sometimes things are just not possible - the most important thing for this time at home is to keep safe, stay happy and enjoy yourselves, so please do not allow these plans, which are meant for your child's enjoyment as well as having an educational benefit, to cause any unnecessary stress or anxiety.

Please do remember to share any learning with us through your child's Tapestry account or via our Orchard email:

Have fun and stay safe!

Mrs Luffman's Learning through Stories


I thought I'd take some time out to read you all a story - one of the things I am missing most about our school closure. 
I hope you enjoy it and that it inspires you to do some fun activities whilst at home - bug hunting, designing your own silly shell or wonderful wings or anything else you can think of, don't forget to share them with us on Tapestry. #welovebooks #learningthroughstories

Dear Parents,


Please do remember during our school closure - however long it may be, to please keep in contact via your child's Tapestry account.

We would love to see what the children have been getting up to and really do want to keep in contact with them as much as possible. 

I am checking Tapestry daily, usually on many occasions, to find out what the children are doing and I will be marking and giving feedback to the children - just as their work and fun activities deserve. Any observations that go on Tapestry I can also add assessments to in order to keep their progress monitored.

Please upload observations, photographs, video clips or whatever you can, whenever you can - daily, weekly or just when you get chance. If you could give a little description with the media of what your child has been doing, and in particular if the work was independent or needed a little support in specific areas, that would really aid the assessments I add to each piece of work.

Thank you in advance and also thank you for all the uploads we have already received - we really do miss your children in class and it is lovely to still see them!

Keep happy, healthy and most importantly having fun!


Mrs Luffman
