Pipits - Term 4

This term our Learning Journey is 'Rumble in the Jungle'

Pipits' Class School Closure Work - from Friday 20th March 2020

Remember to have fun with your learning!

From Friday 20th March Mayfield CE Primary will be closed to all but key workers children. 

During the coming weeks we will endeavour to support your children's learning by providing you with activities to complete at home. We will be regularly updating our class pages so please continue to check back and keep up to date. 

Here are some suggested activities to keep you going. 

Want to stay in touch with each other and Miss O'C while school is closed? Log in to Purple Mash, click on sharing, shared blogs and Pipits Class Blog to send a message to us all!

Each day, try to do some reading/phonics learning, some Maths (2D and 3D shape focus) and something else of your choice!

You may find you are doing more than this or less than this, that is fine, just do your best!

Below you will find a number of different ideas for tasks. Select some to complete over the school closure period.

You could use the resources provided or explore this in a different way if you would like! - Please note: Some activities will be links to the resources.

Anything written in Purple will have related activities or games on Purple Mash (going live on Friday 20th March 2020) - Use the children's normal login and click on 2 Do. Remember, these tasks can be completed in a different way rather than Purple Mash if you would prefer.



  •  Phase 5 flash cards - you could read these, play a game with them and sound button them.
  • Alien word flash cards - Part of Phonics is children being able to read incorrect words - use these in a similar way to the flash cards above.

  • For fun Phonics games online log in to Phonics Play - They have a free login throughout school closures - Username: march20  Password: home


  • Continue to read your school reading books and select some books from home to read. Ask Mummy or Daddy to add all of these in to your reading record.

  •  Continue with your great story writing! 2Create a Story may help you with this.
  • You could plan a story using a story mountain or look on twinkl to find different examples for story planning.
  • Want to continue with handwriting? - Look on Purple Mash for example letters to support you.
