Dobby class 2019/2020




Hello Dobby Class,

It has been lovely speaking to many of you and hearing all of the excting things you have been doing.

It was also nice to hear you speak about your routines at home and I know lots of you have been completing the home learning packs that have been made for you.

If you need any help or would like more resources, ask your parents to contact me on the class email at the top of the page. You could even email me pictures of all the excting things you have been doing/making :-)

Stay safe everyone, 

Mrs Simpson and Mrs Southen


This week, Roxy has enjoyed the sunshine outside in the garden!

I have even put my baking skills to the test and made a lovely lemon drizzle cake - I promise I did not eat it all, I shared it with some of the neighbours nearby :-)

This week I have also been busy with virtual meetings with lots of teachers in planning new ideas for your learning.

Finally...the puzzle in the picture is going to be a challenge, its 1000 pieces and I cannot remember the last time I completed a jigsaw puzzle so wish me luck Dobby class!

From Mrs Simpson :-)



Hello Dobby class, I also wanted to share some of the exciting things I have been doing during this crazy time...

I have also been baking as you can see from the pictures... I am sure it is part of my five a day with all those strawberries on surely? It was very scrummy indeed!

I have been enjoying the lovely weather with my family that we have been so lucky to have, we have been going on lots of walks in our local area making lots of happy memories together.

From Mrs Southen :-)




We have put together below some websites/activities you may find useful to access at home...





You are all very passionate about David Walliams' books, so you can always get online and listen to David telling a different short story every day at 11am:

'Dave the Dog' this might help any of you that may be worried or concerned...




You could become a Guiness Record holder!!!

Times Table Rockstars -


Here are some websites you could use...


Top Marks, BBC Bitesize, Splat Square


White Rose Maths have also produced some fantastic resources and interactive lessons you could look into, use the link below!



We have done lots of work in our Science unit Animals including Humans and we have learnt about our skeleton, names of bones and the muscles used for different activities. If you take part in the PE with Joe Wicks you could use your science knowledge and think about all those muscle groups you are using when exercising! 


You could always do some mindfulness activities, just like the ones we did in the classroom. 

Have a search through and see what different video clips of mindfulness you can find in the Zen Den on Cosmic Kids YouTube.




Our topic this term is  'Anglo-Saxons and Scots', you could do some of your own research online...

BBC Bitesize have lots of interactive videos that you can enjoy watching and learning! See if you can write down some fascinating facts that you find! 



The Anglo-Saxons were great craft workers. They made intricate jewellery,  musical instruments and homemade toys and games.

We have displayed them in our classroom for us to use as reminders all year!
