Hey High Flyers.

April seems to have come and gone so quickly. It has been fantastic being able to hear so many of you over the phone recently. I've reminded a lot of you about using Seesaw and the Live Writing sessions I have been doing. I hope more of you are able to join.


So here is the link for another one. It will go live just before 1pm on Friday 1st May.

How to access new home learning resources

This week's Collective Worship gives an opportunity for you and your family to talk, reflect and pray together on the theme of 'Light in the Darkness'. This may take 10-15mins and can be led by an adult or a child. There are weblinks included for suggested music to use but, feel free to choose your own if you would prefer.Top Tip: create a calm and quiet space for this activity. God Bless and stay safe.

Welcome to the High Flyers' Class Page.

We will be using this as a window in to what goes on in class. Attached is a welcome PowerPoint and Letter that briefly highlights the routines of a typical day, along with some information about how you can help your child to achieve their full potential.


Knowledge Organisers

To help with this term's topic - Crime and Punishment - we have created a knowledge organiser that each child can use to begin to understand what will be taught throughout the topic. This document contains the essential knowledge we will be studying in class.

If your child could learn this section by section, as each week we will be testing them. 


Some ways you could use the Knowledge Organiser at home - 

  • Children read the information and try and recall it either verbally or writtten down
  • An adult tests them on small sections
  • Repeat it over and over
  • Keep revisiting information that has already been learnt in previous weeks


Any other hints and tips that you have found useful would be welcomed.
