Welcome to the Apple class virtual learning site with me - Miss List!


Week 3: 6th - 10th April

Hi everyone! Another week has passed, how was it? I hope you're making the most of being at home and enjoying spending some quality time with your families.

With spring here, why not take the opportunity to have a 'spring clean'! I did my house on Saturday laugh Many of you often say how much of a mess your room is (not naming any names), so why not have a tidy! If you have any spare reading books that you no longer want, then please save them for our school library.

I have uploaded some files, similar to what we would do in class, below. I have also uploaded some more of Pig-heart Boy to the YouTube page (links below) - I don't want you to forget what I look like!

Week 2: 30th March - 3rd April

Hi Apple Tree Family! I hope the home learning is going well and you're staying active. I have uploaded next week's home learning overview for you to complete in your homework books so that I can see it when we get back together! If anything else inspires you over the coming weeks then do that too, I look forward to hearing all your stories.


I have also included files to support your learning:

English: This PPT includes a writing task, guided reading sessions based on our class text, Pig-heart Boy, with some videos of me (embarassingly) reading the chapters, and a grammar quiz - inspired by the ones you made last week! There is a separate file for the grammar answer sheet to use alongside the quiz.

You'll be pleased to hear that I've finally figured out how to make a YouTube account! Here is Chapter 8: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G9f55cGSSI4&feature=youtu.be

Chapter 9https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OO5iuEk4XJA



Maths: I have uploaded two PPTs with a focus on rounding. When we discussed topics we'd like to cover in revision, rounding was a popular choice! Therefore, I have uploaded two files, one on rounding whole numbers and one on rounding decimals. They are similar to our normal maths lessons, so please complete at least two of the tasks.

It is important you keep practising mixed arithmetic skills, so I have uploaded a document with some mixed questions for you to complete.

Once you've finished your school book, think about reviewing it. These can be displayed in the library. The main features of a book review include:


1. A couple of sentences describing what the book is about.

2. Discuss what you particularly liked about the book. Focus on your thoughts and feelings about the story and the way it was told. You could try answering a couple of the following questions:

–Who was your favourite character, and why?
–Did the characters feel real to you?
–Did the story keep you guessing?
–What was your favourite part of the book, and why?
–Were certain types of scene written particularly well - for example sad scenes, tense scenes, mysterious ones...?
–Did the book make you laugh or cry?
–Did the story grip you and keep you turning the pages?

3. Mention anything you disliked about the book. Talk about why you think it didn't work for you. For example:

–Did you wish the ending hadn't been a cliffhanger because you found it frustrating?
–Did you find it difficult to care about a main character, and could you work out why?
–Was the story too scary for your liking, or did it focus on a theme you didn't find interesting?

4. Round up your review. Summarise some of your thoughts on the book by suggesting the type of reader you'd recommend the book to. For example: younger readers, older readers, fans of relationship drama/mystery stories/comedy. Are there any books or series you would compare it to?

5. You can give the book a rating, for example a mark out of ten, if you like!


Some useful websites that provide great examples:



All the reviews on this website:


 have been written by children. CLICK on the book title to read the review.

If you would like to share your book review, not only with our school in the library, but also other children. Send yours via email to helena@storyroom.co.uk

Where it will be published on the website.



To help with your science project, here's some background knowledge on heart rate to help prepare you for the investigation!



Please remember the standards you are capable of achieving in class, it should be the same at home. If you need to record your work, either use your new homework book or paper.

Stay positive and work hard!
