Target work

Don't forget to tweet us: @SsPeterPaulSch. We miss you all and would love to see how you're spending your time at home, whether that be completing work, creative activities or spending quality time with your families. 

Please take a look at our statement and additional resources on the "General Home Learning" class page to see expectations of children during this time.

In addition to the work detailed below, we ask pupils to work through Set A of the CGP Practice Papers over the upcoming weeks. Although the KS2 SATs are no longer due to take place this year, keeping these skills sharp is crucial. Once you have completed them, please use the mark scheme provided within the pack to mark the tests (there is a child friendly mark scheme too). We would be grateful if parents could take the time to go through the answers with your child/children. Please do not yet start Set B as we will save them until later in the year! You will be advised as to when this should be. 

English

Over the next few weeks in class we would have been revisiting, revising or exploring the following activities in our Grammar lessons. Some of these topics we revisit regularly to consolidate pupils understanding. For each objective you will find a PowerPoint and two activities:
