Home Learning

Welcome to our final week of lockdown learning!

Just 5 more days of at-home learning and we'll be back in the class room - hooray!


This week, we will be focusing on "all things reading and books" in recognition of World Book Day on Thursday. I have outlined the week's plan in an email to you (please make sure you check and read) - any questions, please let me know.

Our next Maths and Science units will begin after March 8th, however, we will continue with the Silver/Gold/Platinum questions on Seesaw.


I'm looking forward to seeing you all at 9am - make sure you come armed with pens/pencils/paper!

Welcome to Well-Being Wednesday on March 4th.



***Deadlines loom for our House Competitions***

***Everyone must participate***

***Details on Seesaw or accessed via the link above***


There are some other suggestions on the document above - choose from these if they appeal or decide on anything else (as long as it's not screen-based!). If you'd like to share any photos, please send to me via email and I can share them with the class on this page.


Enjoy and have fun!

Trouble in Paradise is an animated comedy following about Crabby, a small orange crab who lives on a tiny tropical island. The film made me think about perseverance and determination. I particularly liked that at the beginning it says it is a true story, I wonder if it is……? 

Getting ready for live lessons!

Before you join a live lesson it is important that you discuss the following information with a grown-up to make sure you fully understand Helmdon's expectations when using Zoom.


All of the above will guide you as to what is expected as a "live lesson student".

It is important that:

  • You do not share the zoom link with anyone outside your class.
  • You do not share your screen unless instructed by your teacher.
  • Let your teacher know in advance if you are unable to attend a live lesson (if this is possible)
  • You should not be in your bedroom whilst taking part in a school live lesson
  • An adult should be in the same room as you at all times whilst you are in the meeting.


Follow this link to watch a short video to help explain our expectations.


Please be patient with us as technology does not always behave itself!  

We can't wait to see you all.  smiley
