A video from us to you...

We have been working on a little something for you all to show you that we are thinking of you. Stay safe, stay well, stay happy!

From all of us at Rendell Primary School.


Staying safe online

Please use these 2 links to find out how you can help your child/ren stay safe on the internet whilst learning at home.

The first link gives you advice and the second link is an activity you can do.

Keeping yourself healthy

Here is a fantastic booklet about how to look after yourself. It is very important during this time to keep ourselves healthy and safe. 


Things to remember

School books were sent home with your child to use when completing any work.

This may be work set by the school or any additional tasks or projects that you would like to give them.

Any pens/pencils that you have may be used - the colour does not matter.

We will not be marking any work completed during this period of home learning and ask that parents regulary review and discuss any difficulties as they arise. 

Oxford owl website

If you are running out of books to read, because you love reading so much, then this website is AMAZING. It is free to register and has MANY, MANY books to read online, all linked to our colours.

PLEASE use it. (This is on the useful websites list at the bottom of the page too!)

Free ART resource

If you want to be a bit more creative during your time at home, follow this link

It takes you to a free online course that tells you all about sketchbooks, how to create a sketch book and ideas to put into your sketchbook. Let your creativity flow :)

Exciting new maths game

Dear parents/carers. 

We have attached a letter explaining how to log in to a new exciting addition and subtraction maths game called Numbots. 

We would like you to help your children log in and have a go at it. 

Thanks :)

Good Morning.

Why is the sky blue?

Fun fact: A clear cloudless day-time sky is blue because molecules in the air scatter blue light from the sun more than they scatter red light. When we look towards the sun at sunset, we see red and orange colours because the blue light has been scattered out and away from the line of sight.
