At Home Learning

We will now be posting daily updates with activities to complete. There is NO REQUIREMENT that these must be done, but they are an ideal way to keep skills fresh and current. Tweet any photos tagging @ololprimary for us to see!

 

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR ALL OF YOUR EFFORTS AT HOMESCHOOLING AND LEARNING. WE ARE DOING OUR BEST TO SUPPORT YOU AND WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER.

It has been a strange end to the term, not at all what we would have planned. As we are not posting a daily update of activities over the next fortnight, it would be a good idea to try and keep to some kind of routine over the holidays, albeit different from the routine of the last two weeks. Keep up with the exercise (good for the body and mind), keep reading, playing board games and baking and most importantly stay safe and be kind.

Wishing you all a happy and holy Easter. With love from, Mrs Da Silva, Mr Gallagher and Mrs Swainson – all hoping to see you soon.

Mandarin Lessons

Exciting News!

Not satisfied by just learning Spanish, Year 5 will be starting to learn to speak Mandarin! This term, we will be joined by some teachers from Merchant Taylor Schools and they will be teaching all three classes on a Wednesday afternoon. We look forward to showing off our new language skills!

We were recently visited by Dr Diane Davies – the ONLY Maya archaeologist in the UK. She shared some great information, photos, video clips, stories and artefacts with us all, to kick start our topic.
