    • draw a river and write along the sides all the books that you have read AND books that you have had read to you.

  • Design your own wand


An extract from Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone to support wand design ideas:


"Hold out your arm. That's it." He measured Harry from shoulder to finger, then wrist to elbow, shoulder to floor, knee to armpit and round his head. As he measured, he said, "Every Ollivander wand has a core of a powerful magical substance, Mr. Potter. We use unicorn hairs, phoenix tail feathers, and the heartstrings of dragons. No two Ollivander wands are the same, just as no two unicorns, dragons, or phoenixes are quite the same. And of course, you will never get such good results with another wizard's wand."

Harry suddenly realized that the tape measure, which was measuring between his nostrils, was doing this on its own. Mr. Ollivander was flitting around the shelves, taking down boxes.

"That will do," he said, and the tape measure crumpled into a heap on the floor. "Right then, Mr. Potter. Try this one. Beechwood and dragon heartstring. Nine inches. Nice and flexible, just take it and give it a

Children have been given their weekly spellings for Autumn 1 to stick into their Home Learning books.


  1. Decorate your home learning book (we will stick your name labels on at school once they have been decorated)
  2. Practise your spellings ready for the test next week
  3. Put on a 10 minute timer and fill in your multiplication square.  Once the timer goes off, highlight any empty remaining squares (or the facts that you took longer to recall).  Pick a maximum of 3 of those times tables facts to master throughout the week:
    • Write the facts on post it notes around the house and say them aloud when you see them (e.g. 7 X 6 = 42, “Seven times six equals forty-two.”)
    • Write the number fact in huge handwriting on a piece of paper and doodle to make the numbers into alien characters.  As you doodle and colour, sing the fact aloud over and over again.
