Good Morning Apollo,

                                   How are you all doing? Keeping busy and safe I hope. I am still thoroughly enjoying seeing some of your Shakespeare Project work! I have added the activities for Week 4 below as usual. I have been uploading the First News paper and activities for each week too - take a look.

Additionally, this week would have been SATs week. Obviously, we are not doing them as we had practised so I have been thinking...

Let's change the meaning to SAT - Share A Talent.

Send a drawing, picture or a video of you sharing your talent to the Apollo class email and we can celebrate each others talents! I'm looking forward to seeing what you get up to.


Stay safe and happy!

Monday 4th May

Good Morning Awesome Apollo,

                                                 It was so lovely to speak to some of you again last week and hear you are all keeping busy, healthy and most importantly happy! It is so nice to receive emails from some of you too - I get very excited when I see an email in the inbox!! Don't forget you can contact me on here, keep sending me work, pictures or just a diary of what you have been up to!!


We are beginning Week 3 of the Shakespeare project - take a look at the activities for each day. Also this Friday is VE (Victory in Europe) Day, which remembers the celebrations across Europe as World War Two came to an end.  Have a look at all the fun activities you can do at home. 



I am not the only one missing you all, Miss Adeyemi is always asking how you all are doing and has written you all a letter.


Dear Amazing Apollo, 

                               I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. The daily routine has indeed changed, but I am sure you've got a little schedule going and your commitment to your learning and spending time with your family is even greater.

The key thing with your learning, is to do a little everyday! That keeps your brain cells working!

I am ever so impressed by the super-studious, head-down and get-on-with-it attitude many of you are showing to the Shakespeare project - it has been very impressive.

Please keep up with your reading-remember books let you travel without moving your feet! Reading gives us someplace to go when we have to stay where we are.

What new skills have you learnt to do? What has been your favourite activity while being at home? It would be great to hear, send us an email.

I know many of you have read the book Wonder by R.J.Palacio. It mentions...

We carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the very choice of kindness.

We have seen recently so many kind people helping others during this time. I am sure like for me, it has been very awe-inspiring and lovely to see.

We cannot wait to have you back in school.

We really really do miss each and everyone one of you.


Stay well

Stay safe

Stay positive

Stay submitting online!!


Remember you are not stuck at home, you are safe at home!

In Spring Term the children will be learning the basics and skills of Netball and Tag Rugby. This will be every Tuesday. The children will need joggers, a hoodie or jacket, a t-shirt and trainers as if weather is fine we will be outside.

We will also have swimming on Tuesday pm. The children will need a swimming costume, towel and swimming hat.

Learning in Apollo Class


Children in Apollo class have made a superb start with their reading this year! Children are expected to complete a page reflection in their reading journal every evening. We have discussed time management and it is acceptable if children want to complete entries ‘ahead’ of time. We have a class library and school library for children to loan books from but also encourage children to enjoy reading for pleasure and students can read books that they have at home too.


Home Learning

Our topic this term is World War Two. Students will have the opportunity to create mini projects, extending the learning they are participating in at school at home.


Children will have a weekly spelling test.Words will be given out each half term. Children are aware of the group they have been assigned.


In addition to the weekly spelling test Spelling Frame is a free website where children can access spelling games to reinforce their learning.
