Congo Class

Welcome to the Congo Class At-Home Hub!

Here you will find all the things you need to keep learning at home during this difficult time. Log on each day to see the latest suggestions, to find links to great things you can do both online and off, to see photos of your friends at work at home, and examples of the work they are doing. Send us what you are learning before 9 am each day, and you may well see it here! Any great, interesting or original work or photos, any top tips, or even a joke of the day; just email me. Let’s share our learning and living experiences.

Keep safe, busy and smiling, everyone!

School Closure Letter For Children March 2020

School Closure Timetable Letter March 2020

Well done, Congo Class

Well done to Belle, for being our Superstar of the Week (see the home page). It’s great when children are able to work so hard when they are both in school and at home, like Belle, over the week.

And a belated well done for a beautiful bag from our No Plastic Bags Day last week. I have even seen this bag being used!

Great sewing and embroidering!

A big well done to Thomas, who has been improving his typing and keyboard skills; very useful. We’re also proud of Zac, who has been ahead of the game, and finished his newspaper report, as he is in school next week.

Autumn has been really busy with some great multiplication and history; well done, Autumn.

Some great detective work, identifying the artefacts excavated at Must Farm.

Last week is your very last whole week of the school year. So please, let’s all have a final big push and send me your lovely work, from Monday through to Friday!

Planning for week beginning Monday 13th July 2020 – Congo Class

A massive well done to all home teachers, as well as home learners; we are now in the ‘home straight’! In this last week, it would be fantastic if children were to able to get their newspaper report finished (more on the planning sheet below) and to feel confident using written methods for multiplication and division. For science and history, we are aiming to ‘wrap up the learning’. For other foundation subjects, I know families have been either working from the plans from the start of this half-term (see planning sheet) or doing some of their own creative and physical activities.

Maths (additional)


Year 4

Year 5


We are proud of you, Belle, as you have worked so hard this week, both in school and at home. You work quietly, beavering away, and your work is always of a high standard. I was especially impressed with the accuracy of your long multiplication work.


Well done!

RE 13th July 2020

Watch the video of Jonah and the Whale,

then have a think about God’s behaviour, and also Jonah’s.

Why did God punish Jonah?

How did Jonah feel at the end of this story?

If you were Jonah, what would you have done?

Friday 3rd July – Congo Class

What a great week we’ve had, and what a great day! Today was International No Plastic Bag day. Well done to everyone who looked on the websites, played the game and/or made a newspaper bag. They were trickier than they looked, weren’t they? And I’m afraid the in-school learners would NOT have earned enough to support their families. We found it quite an eye-opener. If you and your family would like to do more to help support initiatives like paper-bag making, then look at the link below.

Well done also to children who have been learning about friction in science and practising their athletics skills for PE.

Great racing, boys.
That bag looks beautiful!
Snazzy yellow handles improve things.
Mind your fingers on that machine!
Investigating water resistance; great work!

RE 6th July 2020

Could writing a letter really help someone?

How might it make someone feel to receive a letter?

Whom might you write to?

What might you tell them?

Do you have a few spare minutes?

(A text or an email would also be fine, but let us know how you get on).

PSHE 6th July

Here is a pair of sunglasses. They are to decorate, cut out and wear. Use them to look back on your year, thinking about everything you have learned. Then take them off, give them quick clean, and use them to look forward into the future. What have you missed this year? What are you looking forward to?

Thursday 2nd July 2020 – Congo Class

No Plastic Bag Day this Friday: here are some additional materials for the day. The game is great, if you are able to work with a partner. And it helps to be good at bag-making. I hope you have been saving those newspapers!

You will also need lots of buttons, glass beads or pennies for the game; good luck!

Wednesday 1st July 2020 – Congo Class

Half way through the week, and well done everybody, with those newspaper reports! From discoveries of a new planet to amazing cycle rides and lucrative lottery wins, I have had a great selection. Please continue to send these in to me. Next week we will be building up our knowledge and skills in writing newspaper reports. In the meantime, please read any newspapers or magazines you can get hold of and home. And on the subject of newspapers, do you have a few for No Plastic Bag Day on Friday?

Here is a great website, if children like to read their news online.

If you’ve done your workbook pages, or fancy an additional maths challenge, here are some activity booklets, which I think are rather good.
