Brilliant Bees – Try These!

Good Morning to you all.  I hope you are all well and feeling refreshed from a good night’s sleep.


Here is a couple of links you may like to try today or any other day.

Listen to a David Walliams story from The World’s Worst Children, every day at 11am.


Try a maths quiz, this is an audio file so you won’t see anything, but you will hear the questions.  It’s great for mental maths.  There is a different colour for you to do each day and 10 questions to answer in each colour.


Any questions or concerns you have please get in touch, stay safe everyone!

Hello to the Brilliant Bees!

Just wanted to say a big HELLO to you all.  Thank you to everyone that emailed to register children today and thank you to everyone that sent us pictures or messages about what they were doing today.


Please take this week to recuperate from a very busy term 3, spend time with your family and do all the things that you need to do, to stay fit and healthy!


This week you can have a look at all the tasks and activities we sent you home.  We sent you a lot of information intended to be used throughout term 4.  Please do not start any of the activities until after the Easter holidays.  You can try some of the new games online and you could set up your Numbots and Teach Your Monster to Read character.  You could also play some of the games you already have set up in Sumdog and TT Rockstars.


Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.

Science Week

During this week we investigated the importance of hand washing and that germs may be present even if they are not seen.

For this experiment we put a drop of lotion on our hands and rubbed them together to spread the lotion out evenly. With our hands over newspaper, we put a pinch of biodegradable glitter in the palm of one of our hands. The glitter represented the germs. With our hands still over the newspaper, we made a fist with the hand that had glitter on it, then spread our fingers out. Afterwards we pressed the palms of our hands together. We noticed that  the glitter spread all over our hands, on some of our faces and even our clothing. We tried to wipe the glitter off using a paper towel but it did not clean off all of the glitter. Next we used soap and water and all the glitter came off.

Here are some comments the children made about their investigation.

“When we put the glitter on, the glitter went everywhere!”

“Glitter went on our faces if we touched them and everything we touched.”

“We wiped our hands with a paper towel only and it only removed some of the glitter.”

“We learned how quickly germs spread as the glitter spread.”

“We watched a video about washing hands. Once we washed our hands all the glitter went away.”

“Washing our hands is so important and we know when to wash them and how.”

World Book Day

Today is World Book Day and in class we have been sharing our favourite story or book. We all have ideas for books we would like to read now!
