On this page you will find a suggestion of work, which you can do with, or set for your child to help keep them up to date  with the curriculum during the school closure.

If I can help in any way, please contact me on the school email : nlawton@hazlehurstschool.co.uk. I will endeavour to get back to you within 24 hours.

Daily Reading

English Writing: Weekly

Try one of the writing tasks each week and if you'd like to, email me a copy. I'll create a place on this page where you can share it with the rest of the class. There are lots to choose from, so choose one you feel most inspired by.




I will add updated "Grammar Investigations" for you. See below.

Continue to use your 10 minute homework book.



Work through one sheet per day

Continue to use your 10 minute homework book - do one a day until the book is complete.

At the bottom of the page you will find copies of the SATs coach booklet that we started in class. Take one day a week to do one of these.  I've also put the answers on!

Following conversations with families, some of you have asked about more challenge for maths. Below is a link to a website called nrich. Here you will find excellent open ended problems which will test the grey matter.


We've also been working on these mobile puzzles which use logic and algebra skills https://solveme.edc.org/Mobiles.html

Some of the children brought home mental arithmetic tests. For those that didn't, there is a copy of the booklet in the maths section below.

The answers are also provided.



Our science topic is "Evolution and Inheritance".  There are lots of videos in the links page below.

I will add a presentation weekly which will include instructions.

Don't feel it's necessary to print any of this out. Just make notes in a book or on paper at home.

David Attenborough's series Natural World is on BBC iplayer at the moment and the episode on "Frogs" is absolutely perfect for this unit of work - as are the rest of them actually!



Subscribe to Duolingo - app or website - 10 minutes a day will make an incredible difference.(Free)



Try to get outside while the weather is good and exercise. 

P.E. with Joe Wicks on YouTube has become an overnight sensation. You might want to try some of his other sessions too.



A new unit for you to get busy on. 

Design a seat!

Work through the 4 presentations. You may wish to sketch as you go - like we did in our Leonardo Sketch books. I've sent a text message  asking your families to save cardboard, bottles etc. that might normally end up in the recycle bin.

I'd love to see photographs of your completed models. I'll share them at the bottom of this page.


Take care of yourselves.
