Dear Parent and Carers,


Welcome back to another jam packed term at Marcham School. The last few months have been challenging for all and even though we are not able to spend time as a class in person, I know we will continue to persevere and stay positive as we work from home on Google Classroom.


As always, we have a new topic to explore! We will be looking at the development of transport over the ages, focusing predominantly on the Industrial Revolution. We will analyse great inventors, observe the advancements of trains, planes and boats and use our design and technology skills to design our own modes of transport.


On Google Classroom, we will be continuing with video instruction and will explore new topics in Science, Art, R.E, English and Maths so please see our class Topic Web to find out what the class will be learning this term. We will also have a Google Meet every Friday at 1pm to stay connected as a class, as well as some feedback sessions throughout the week.


Whilst we are not all in school, please make sure that your child is still reading 10 minutes a day to fulfil our Marcham School reading pledge. In the entrance hall, there will be a box of books for you to peruse if you child needs to swap their reading book.


In addition, please take this opportunity to continue working on our 12 x 12 times tables. There will always be TimesTableRockStar tasks to complete but below are more ideas to try at home (especially if you want a break from a screen.)


  • Flash cards
  • Hitthebutton (app or for free using the internet on an iPad or laptop).
  • Board Games
  • Chanting/counting
  • Songs (Mr Demaio on Youtube is a personal favourite of mine)
  • Sticking tricky facts around the house
  • Beat the clock ( I can supply you with Speed Maths sheets to take home if required)


As always, if you have any questions or wish to speak to me, please let the office know so that we can arrange an appointment. Thank you for your support, stay safe and I hope to see you all very soon!

Kind regards,

Mr Clack
