Tuesday 2nd January


Remember to read at home for at least 20 minutes today. Today we would like you to visit the Oxford Owl website:

Log in to the students section using the following details:

Username: beechclass101

 Oxford Owl

Use the search function to find books in the Project X series:

Find a book which is the right level for you (please ask for help if you need doing this). Read the book, complete the activities and then let us know what you thought about the book.

Did you enjoy it?

Would you recommend it to a friend?

Please let us know so we can share this information on the blog and point your classmates towards some great reads!   



Today we are going to try out a live English lesson. The session starts at 10:45am and the link was sent out to you via ParentPay on Friday. If you need the link to be resent, please just ask.  

In this session, we will introduction another significant event that Samuel Pepys would have experienced in 1666- A Thames Frost Fair. We will examine some sources of information and make historical discoveries about Frost Fairs.

This meeting will be recorded and added to our school YouTube account so that the rest of the class can view it if required. If you do not want your child to be filmed, please make sure that your child’s camera is off for the duration of the session. If you would prefer to watch the recorded version of the session, a link will be added to the daily blog post shortly after the conclusion of the session.

Follow Up Activity:

We have attached images of all the sources of information that we used in today’s session. Use these sources of information to make historical discoveries which help to answer the following questions:

-Why did the Thames freeze over?

-Who went to the Frost Fairs?

-What could you buy at a Frost Fair?

-What could you do at a Frost fair?

Please send your discoveries into the class email so we can give you feedback and post your work on the blog.  



Today please complete the worksheets that you started yesterday. Remember that there are videos to help you if you need them.

-Divide by 2: Spr2.4.1 - Divide by 2 on Vimeo

-Divide by 5: Spr2.4.3 - Divide by 5 on Vimeo

If you have finished this activity and are looking for an extra challenge, try this interactive task:

Are You Well Balanced? (

TOP TIP: Use your understanding of multiplication and division to help balance the scales.


Number Fluency-

If you haven’t done so already, watch Mr M’s video helping you to practise skip counting in 3s:

Now try highlighting all the multiples of 3 on a number line to 50. We have attached a 0-50 number-line to this blog post. Now practise skip counting in multiples of 3!



Today, we would like you to complete your guided tour of the ‘Fire Fire’ exhibition at the Museum of London. We want you to watch from 9:35 until the end of the video:

Then, we want you to complete the activity suggested by the curator of the museum:

Imagine a rebuilt home! Design a home that you'd be allowed to build after the Great Fire. Can you remember all the rules?

-They had to be made of brick.

-They had to stand straight.

-They could be up to 2 stories tall on a small street, or 4 stories tall on a bigger street.

You could draw the home using pencils or on a computer (in Minecraft, perhaps?), build it using building blocks or recycled materials, or whatever you have available.

When your house is complete, send it in to us so we can give you feedback and add it to the blog. We will also send over your designs to the team at the Museum of London so they can see it for themselves. They loved your work answering the question: ‘Why did the Fire get so bad?’

Here is what they had to say about our work:

I’m really glad the children enjoyed it, and thanks so much for sending us the link to the blog to see their amazing pictures – it’s really made my day and I’ve forwarded to everyone in the schools team to see.  Please tell the children that they’re fabulous – especially love Hayden’s big moon!
