Thomas Jolyffe Primary School


Our last day of home learning. We are looking forward to having you all back in the classroom on Monday. It will be so nice to see everyone again in 'real life'.  Remember to come to school in your normal school uniform on Monday and not in your PE kit.


Well done to all of you who have persevered with the remote learning. We know it hasn't always been easy and it can get very frustrating at times. You should all be very proud of yourselves on what you have achieved. Well done everyone. There are some lessons below for those of you who want to pursue one final day of learning at home.



Look at the problem below and have a go at it. There are printable worksheets showing you the times in words and on clocks. These are on cards that you can cut out and order.

Challenge: What extra information would you need to help you do this task more effectively?

If you had that information would it change the order? 

Try to ask (and answer) a range of 'What if...' questions. If you can do this then you are becoming a true mathematician!

LO: To write a poem 


As your final 'lockdown learning' English task, we would like you to write a poem about your lockdown experiences. There are no restrictions or rules about what your poem needs to be like - just enjoy being creative, and reflecting on your personal lockdown. 


You poem could rhyme, but it doesn't have to! It could be a narrative poem (tell a story). It could be a funny poem.... or full of serious emotions. You might even decide to use personification and think about describing lockdown as a person! Think about the different styles of poems we've looked at over the last couple of weeks (Don't by Michael Rosen - a list poem; Chocolate Cake by Michael Rosen - a narrative poem; and Sun is Laughing and I am the Rain by Grace Nichols - both personification poems). The choice is yours as to what you do! Good luck, and we can't wait to read them smiley

Music & PE
