Good morning everyone,
Well done for completing another busy week on Teams! I think we are all getting the hang of it now
Everyday at 9am, we will have a class registration time. In this time, we will be discussing the work you will need to be completing for the day. In the afternoon at 2.20pm we will meet again for a Live Question and Answer session where you can ask questions about your work. You can still email me if you get stuck on:
Have a wonderful week,

Make sure you have a listen to Chapter 1 of our class book: Street Child.
Have a great day,
Welcome to a new week. Today all learning will be back on Teams, so please ensure that you log on and complete today's lessons.

As you are aware, Microsoft Teams is currently down. We are working very hard to get this up and running again for children to use. Please log out of Teams to ensure an update can be completed. In the meantime, work will be set on our class page.
If you have any questions, I will try my best to answer them as soon as possible. I will be available between 8.30am and 3.30pm on:
Work through the PowerPoint to create a mind map of the different areas of a work house.
Alternatively, you can conduct your own research about the workhouse using the following headings:
It is important that you complete this as you will need your notes for English next week.
Please read the instructions carefully on the document 'Lesson one'. Once you have done that, you can have a look at some of the websites in the next document which will help you to complete your fact file about Stephenson's Rocket.
Please note, whilst we are sorting technical difficulties with Teams, please use these links to help you with your Maths and English work.
Remember, you can use TTRS and Purple Mash as there are still activities on there for you to complete.
Wednesday 13th January 2021
Today we launch Teams for children's remote learning, both an exciting and nervous time! Using your login details, children will now be able to access their lessons online. In Oxford Circus, there will be English and Maths lessons Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with afternoon lessons incorporating our Theme, Science, P.E, R.E, ICT and PSHE. On Wednesdays, there will be lessons for Art, Music, French and P.E. A weekly time table will be added to the Oxford Circus Teams page.
As you will see, sometimes future assignments have been added. Please ensure that your child only completes work set for that day as the lessons are chronological.
Remember that children can still access TT Rockstars and need to quiz their reading books using Renaissance Reading.
Keep an eye on the CBBC channel (am) and BBC2 (pm) as there are many educational programmes on at the moment to support learning.
Remember that you can email me on email@example.com
Stay safe and good luck!

Hello Oxford Circus,
As another busy week begins, we find ourselves having to learn new skills. As from Wednesday, learning will take place using Teams - you will have received your login details and how to access the site. This is not only new to you, but new to teachers too! We shall learn and overcome teething problems together. Thank you in advance for your patience during this time. Your work will be set on Teams and you will be able to access video links - where I will be explaining tasks - also documents to help with your learning.
Up until Wednesday, I will set work on Purple Mash and on this page as we did last week.
If you need to contact me about work or other issues then the class email address is
Please note this week I will be available: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 8am-4pm.
Stay safe and good luck with Teams!
On Monday and Tuesday, Maths tasks will be set on Purple Mash with a focus on time and money. Please remember to keep using Times Table Rock Stars to keep up your times table fluency and accuracy.
On Monday and Tuesday, English tasks will be set on Purple Mash. We are going to be looking at a story on Serial Mash called 'Ollie and the Great Stink'. This is a story based in Victorian times that I think you will all enjoy.
It is expected that you continue to read at home, whether this is books, magazines, comics, recipes or e-books! You can continue to quiz your books at home too:
On Monday and Tuesday, Science tasks will be set on Purple Mash. This week we are going to look at how to stay safe around electricity.
Again, this is set on Purple Mash for this week. Using the research you conducted about Queen Victoria last week, you are going to use the Mash Cam to write about some of the interesting things you found out about her. You are going to be writing (or talking through the microphone!) as if you are Queen Victoria.
As you may be aware, Joe Wicks is going to be doing his work out videos on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Below is the link if you wish to join in.
The quiz for your spellings is set on Purple Mash, like usual. Below is the Look, Cover, Write, Check for this week.
At the end of last term, Miss Wright set you a Christmas Reading Challenge to read a book in a funny or "extreme" place. Over the Christmas break, I read about the game Animal Crossing to our pet love bird, Harry, who is perched on the top of the door - I think he enjoyed it
Children should be reading books (or magazines, leaflets etc.) on a regular basis. Children can still quiz their books at home on the link below.
Children that achieve 100% in each individual quiz will receive a certificate. Once they achieve ten 100% quizzes, they will be awarded their bronze reading certificate and badge.
Below are questions you could ask your children to help deepen their understanding of the books they have been reading.
Welcome back to the Spring term of school! I hope you all had an enjoyable Christmas break. I would like to wish you and your families a very Happy New Year
As you are aware, we are going to be online learning once again. On our class page is the work I would like you to complete for this week (6/1/2021 - 8/1/2021).
If you need anything clarified, have any questions or forgotten passwords, then please do not hesitate to contact me on:
I will be available between 8am and 4pm on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday this week.
Our theme for this term is The Victorians. There are two tasks we would like you to complete over the next three days:
1) Carry out some research about Queen Victoria using the following headings to help with this:
- Early life & childhood
- Early adulthood
- Married life & children
- Key events during her reign e.g. The Great Exhibition
- Later life
Make sure you record the notes in your own words and include as much detail as possible as we will be writing a biography of Queen Victoria over the coming weeks and these notes will be very useful.
2) I would like you to have a look at this Victorian timeline. Can you put events in the correct order? What did you already know? What have you learnt? Is there anything you have found particularly interesting?
This term in Science we are going to be looking at electricity. On Purple Mash there is an activity for you to complete about electricity around your home.
Weekly spellings will be added to our class page as well as the quiz set on Purple Mash for you to have a go at.
The start of a new year is always a good time to be reflective and think about what went well last year and what we would like to improve on. Have a think and jot down some ideas about what you would like to be a new years resolution. Remember this is a personal development goal and doesn't have to be about school!
In Science this term, we have been looking at light and shadows. During our flow through day, we made our own bat man inspired bat signals. We had great fun!
Below are spellings that children should be practising and are expected to know by the end of Key Stage 2.
Children need to be continually practising their times tables as this is one of the key fundamentals of maths.
Purple Mash is a valuable learning tool, with lots of fun and educational activities to support children's learning.
Unfortunately not the ones with chocolate chips.
