Hi Cedar,


Just a quick note to let you know that I won't be calling you all up this week (Beginning 8th June 2020) and in the future unless you want to talk to me! If you do want to talk to me about something, please send me a message on Seesaw or through Purple Mash. Sorry to those that were looking forwards to it, I hope you all have a wonderful week.


Best wishes,


Mr Blake

Hi everyone,

Please check your Purple Mash email (found by going on Computing, then clicking on 2Email) for your login details for Seesaw. Please remember that your login details are private and are effectively a password! You can use the Seesaw site to upload pictures of your work that has been done at home as well as anything for the recommended tasks that I have set for you.

If you are having any problems accessing the site, I will be calling you all this week to try and sort you out and to catch up after the holiday. My videos will be shared on the Seesaw site in the future where I will be reading, telling you little stories about my day as well as telling you stories about the Greeks. I will also read the story in the recommended home learning guide this week for a bit of fun as well!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter too.


Mr Blake



...More Home Learning and Purple Mash


Hi Cedar,


I have been setting lots of pieces of work for people to complete on Purple Mash and I am delighted that you have started to look at and complete those. As time goes ahead, I will be continuing to set pieces of work and activities to complete on there for you and using other services like Mathletics more. Purple Mash contains 2Email and I have sent you all an email using it, so you should receive a notification of that. 2Email allows us to send children in our class messages, meaning that you can send each other things too! Please remember that when you send messages to eachother, you must remember your e-safety rules and the computing code of conduct, teachers can read all of your messages and must approve them before they are sent to their recipient. 

This is the link to the Oxford Owl website as discussed in my updates video on the 2nd April.


I hope you have a lovely week!


Mr Blake

Home Learning


Hello Cedar,

I hope that everyone is safe and healthy and enjoying the beautiful weather at the moment. I have hopefully set up some Mathletics activities for you to all be doing on your accounts, but there seems to be a problem with it at the moment - so let the office know if there is a problem! I will also be scheduling some TTR challenges for you to beat.

I would love to hear all about the wonderful projects that you have been doing at home, so please send photos to the office. You can find a large list of websites to help you out with home learning ideas on the school website under Children/Home Learning - I am going to be updating this list as I find more things over the next few weeks. Please note that some of these sites might need your parents and carers to create accounts with them, so please make sure that you have an adult's help when using them. 

I will be recording videos of class books for you to listen to and watch, so here is me testing my new microphone! I hope you like it.


I will hopefully be starting a way for me to see and share activities with you all, but watch this space!

Stay in the sun, have fun and keep active!

Mr Blake

Good afternoon Cedar Class,


Please keep practising your touch-typing skills. I have set you some 2Dos on Purple Mash to complete. I have inserted two photos below to remind you - each activity 3 times for 3 minutes. Try and beat your scores. I can't wait to see your results.


Take care and keep safe,


Mrs Asker

Welcome to Cedar!


Hi there!

Welcome to our class web page, which will be updated as the year goes on with all of our interesting adventures. On this page, you will find our homework projects, knowledge organisers for our Science, History and Geography units and topic outlines as well as photos of interesting things that we have done in class and on our trips around the local area. Alongside these you'll find some pieces of work that we're really proud of. 


Thanks for taking a look!

Some Photos of the Rehearsals too!

Bulb Planting...


We have planted a huge number of bulbs in the area outside of our classroom to blossom into a riot of colour over this coming spring for our school's 30th anniversary this coming March. Many thanks for all of the wonderful donations of bulbs and the parent helpers who turned up to assist with the planting. We must have planted over 200 bulbs of different types as a class; a mean achievement!

This half term we are going to be doing some weaving, making our own backstrap looms and making a small piece of material. We started off by practising our weaving skills with paper. We have also started to weave on our looms... it's quite fiddly work!

This term, we are looking at the Mayans and have been doing a huge range of things in the classroom on this topic. One of the things we have done is made some Mayan food as a class, preparing the vegetables and tortillas ourselves.

Science - Autumn 2


This half term we are looking at Rocks and Fossils. The class have loved looking at other children's  metamorphic rock samples and fossils from home and really enjoyed looking at the crystal collection in school. If you have any cool fossils, don't forget to bring them in to share with everyone!

Testing Rock Samples

Science - Autumn 1


We have been looking at Forces and Magnets this half term and have been doing a range of experiments to test them. Our investigation on the strength of different magnets was great fun and quite surprising when we got our results.
