Read the weekly timetable at the top of the page to find out what to do πŸ™‚


  1. Miss Andrew, will we be doing live lessons. If we are when will you be sending out the invites. Isla

    • Hi Isla, I hope you’re okay. We will definitely be doing live lessons and they will begin on Thursday. I will be sending out the times either later today or tomorrow. For now, there are lots of activities on Education City and Mathletics πŸ™‚ Miss Andrew

  2. Hi Miss Andrew
    Should we complete the maths sheet before the Teams meeting or during the meeting?

  3. hi miss andrew on teams replies are disibled so i have to tell you this on the blog i have done the shared write in the english lesson

  4. Hi Miss Andrew . I have done Friday’s English but im not sure how many paragraphs I had to do so I just completed paragraph 3 and paragraph 4. Alice S

  5. Good morning Miss Andrew, for the science do we have to do all the labeling or would we be able to choose one

  6. my English paragraph from the live lesson,
    Emergency services are trying extremely hard to find the missing passengers but the amazon rainforest is a difficult place to maneuver through. Everyone hopes that they will be found soon. Moreover, there has been small contact from the plane since its final call. The parents of the children are worrying so much and are praying for their safe return. Isla Stevens

    • A great paragraph with a formal tone – well done Isla. On your first sentence, you have used a conjunction but it is missing punctuation – what is missing? I’m looking forward to reading your newspaper report next week! πŸ™‚

  7. Sorry about that Miss Andrew,
    I think I needed to add a comma before the ‘but’.
    Thank you for telling me πŸ™‚

  8. Here’s my paragraph;

    The aircraft did not send a distress signal, according to the head of national search and rescue agency.
    It is thought to have dropped more than 3,000m (10,000ft) in less than a minute, according to flight tracking website
    Search and rescue efforts have been going on since early morning . Four planes were also deployed to help with the search.
    Relatives of the children have been waiting anxiously at the airport in Manaus for any news.

    • Hi Nathan, your first sentence is impactful and has a formal tone. You have also used parenthesis correctly, adding extra information. You have used the word ‘according’ twice, could you change one of these? I would also suggest adding a fronted adverbial to join your sentences, e.g. ‘moreover’, ‘furthermore’ or ‘consequently’. I hope this helps πŸ™‚
