Dear parents/ carers
Thank you for supporting your child with their home learning in these unprecedented times. Please don't feel overwhelmed by the amount of work sent home, or feel that your child has to complete every last bit in the next 2 weeks.
The work we have sent home is designed so that the children can dip in and do whatever they feel is achievable. The last thing we want to do, when there is so much anxiety in the world at the moment, is to make your child feel anxious or under pressure.
Some of you may want to create a timetable at home and indeed, many children enjoy the security of knowing what they should be doing, but please make sure that, as well as academic studies, you allow time for your child to play, get fresh air and be creative.
Don't worry about your child not making progress in school. All children throughout the country are in the same boat and as experienced teachers, when we are back together in the classroom, we will of course reflect, review learning and set work at the appropriate level.
Thank you for your continued support. Stay safe.

We will be putting ideas on this page for you to do at home.
All children who were present on Wednesday have been given a book and pencil to record their homework.
Keep visiting this page as we will keep adding ideas for you.

Can you design your own inflatable robot?
What could your robot be used for?
Draw and label a rhinoceros beetle.
Explain how it has adapted to be so strong.
Can you find any more information about the rhinoceros beetle? What does it eat? Where does it live?
Joe Wicks, (aka The Body Coach) is doing a PE session every day on his You Tube Channel at 9am.
We hope you'll be able to jump about and join in.
Keep up to speed with what you have learned so far in Spanish.
Yesterday we made animal skeletons out of sticks and pine cones and other things that you could find in the garden or park.
You could try making an animal skeleton yourself and then take a photo of it.
Can you label the bones?
Spring in the School Garden
This morning we went out into the school garden to look for signs of spring.
Here are some photos of what we saw.
Can you write a poem or a description about Spring in Forest Fields?
You might even see some signs of spring in your own garden or the park.
We looked in the school garden at the beginning of term to see signs of Autumn. We found lots of fruit, flowers and seeds.
Look at these brilliant robots that we created at home. What a lot of time and effort has gone into them. We are very impressed. Thankyou to all children (and families) who completed a homework challenge.
We have really enjoyed learning all about robots and creating some of our own using pneumatics to make them move.
We have created animations in ICT and have learned how to program.
We loved reading The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and our teachers were very impressed by the language we used in our re-telling of the story. Miss Hoyland thought they were amazing too!
We had great fun learning about forces and magnetism in science. Some of us made a magnetic fishing game as part of our homework challenge; we know what metals are attracted to magnets; which things don't stick and what' attract' and' repel' mean.
Some of us worked really hard at home to build our own robots. They were truly amazing and our teachers couldn't believe all the hard work we did at home.
Our teachers are...
