Mrs Gray – Grey-Thompson Class
Home Learning Update
As some children will be returning to school on June 2nd, the way home learning is being provided will be changing due to most staff working with children in school.
Home learning projects will continue to be uploaded to the school website on a weekly basis and will now be for specific key stages, rather than year groups: Key Stage 1 (Years 1 and 2), Lower Key Stage 2 (Years 3 and 4) and Upper Key Stage 2 (Years 5 and 6).
Instead of logging onto a specific class page to access the home learning, you will now need to go to the Children menu on the website – Home Learning Projects and select the relevant key stage for your child.
We will continue to use the key stage email addresses, but these may not be answered from your child’s teacher. The following teachers will respond to the emails:
Reception and Year 1 and 2 - Miss White
Year 3 and 4 - Mrs Palmer (Mr Staveley will continue to respond to any Nightingale emails)
Year 5 and 6 - Mr Staveley
It has been lovely to receive some of the children’s work, but we now ask that the home learning email addresses are no longer used for sending in children’s work. The named teachers will be available only for questions regarding the work set.
Thank you for continuing to support you child/children with their home learning.
Spot the staff babies
It's half term so we thought you might like a fun activity to do. In the first attached document you will see pictures of 29 of our staff as babies. In the second document you will see the names of the staff. Can you match the names to the correct staff pictures? Look back here on Friday 29th May to check how many you got right. Good luck!
Answers for baby competition
We have an email address where you can ask Miss White questions about the learning you have been doing. Use this email address to get in touch.
Here is the email address. Please put Grey-Thompson class in the subject.
Look forward to hearing from you.
As it is the half term holiday from Monday 25th May to Friday 31st May we will not be having a class zoom meeting. I will also not be putting any new home learning onto our class page.
I hope you have a good week and that the weather continues to be kind to everyone!
Week 9's activities are here for you. I hope you have lots of fun with them and enjoy learning all about being 'Under the Sea!'
Don't forget to try to send me an example of something you've been learning at home and I will do my best to try to put this onto the website to share with your friends.
Take care and stay safe!
I have been so delighted with all of the learning you have been sending me via our email address. You have really been trying hard with all of the home learning activities.
I'm looking forward to seeing what you achieve this week.
Well done everyone!
Share YOUR Story - Somerset Story Swap.
Do you enjoy writing? Have you got a story inside you? Have you written a short story of your own or even have some good ideas to share? If the answer is yes and you'd like to share it with others, here's how.
The Somerset Storyfest have invited all children in Somerset schools to Story Swap. You can post your stories on line using this link. https://www.facebook.com/Somerset-Storyfest-428942520456383/
You can share a whole story or even just post some ideas. Please ask permission from your adults at home first.
More exciting activities to keep you all making lots of progress with your learning. I hope you enjoy them and don't forget to email me examples of what you've been doing, if you can.
Take care, keep safe, look after each other and hopefully we will all see each other again very soon.
Hello! I hope you are all still enjoying the activities on the weekly learning projects. Here is week 6 for you, please have a look at the activity I thought you might like to email to me. I'm very happy for you to email examples of anything else you've been doing too. It has been lovely to be in touch with some of you recently!
I hope you are all keeping well and enjoying doing lots of different things at home with your families. As you can see I've been busy recently doing some baking with my children. We made shortbread biscuits. They may not look amazing but they did taste yummy!
If you've been baking at home maybe you'd like to email me a photo of what you made and I can share it with everyone.
Look at this amazing writing practise from Jada!
She has been practising writing lots of different words. Well done Jada, you're a super writer!
Jada has been a super scientist, she made her own igloo by freezing water in an ice cube tray and then using the ice cubes to build her igloo! She then experimented to find out how long it would take her to melt her igloo using a hair-dryer! That sounds like lots of fun!
Hi Kristian! Look at all of the things you've been doing, wow! You even made me a birthday card, thank you very much!
I hope you have managed to enjoy some of the lovely sunshine over the last few days. I have been busy in my garden trying my best to look after my plants! It was also my birthday one day last week. I was lucky enough to have some lovely birthday cards and my family bought me a beautiful necklace.
Let's hope the good weather continues whilst we are at home, soon you will be able to tell me about what you've been doing as well.
Welcome to the Grey-Thompson class page!
The children in our class have chosen an amazing person to be named after this year. Tanni Grey-Thompson is an inspiring sports woman who held over 30 world records whilst competing as a wheelchair racer.
We hope to be brave in our learning this year and always try to do our best, just like Tanni Grey-Thompson. We will share some of our learning with you on this class page very soon.

Here is some of the exciting learning we have been enjoying.
Topic web for the Autumn term.
We have been having a fantastic time over this half term learning lots of new things and getting to know each other. Just have a look at some of the fun we've been having!
Lots of learning!
We have had a very busy few weeks and I cannot believe that soon your children will have completed their first term at school. Here are some photos of our learning and some of the characters from our Christmas play.
