Galley Hill Primary School, Hemel Hempstead. Galley Hill rated GOOD by Ofsted. 'Value of the Month - 'RESPECT'



Please make sure that you read every day to an adult and discuss the text.

You could read anything from your house - books, comics, cereal packets, tv subtitles.

Don't forget that you have access to Rising Stars reading planet where you will find the same books that we normally send home (this will be another way for us to know that you are engaging with school work).  If you have forgotten your log in details then please do get in touch.


Oxford Owls is another great website with a wide range of books at different levels 


You could also have a go at the reading challenges we posted here:  - can you tick them all off by the time we return to school?



Look through the phonics sheet.  

Activity 1 - sorting

Sort the words into the correct column according to the way the grapheme 'g' is pronounced.  Say each word out loud to help you.

Activity 2 - reading

Read the sentence out loud - identify the 'g' word and which column you would sort it into.  Remember to break longer words into smaller more manageable chunks to help you sound them out if they are a bit tricky.

Activity 3 - dictation writing

Ask someone in your house to say this sentence to you: Keep away, danger!.  Write down the sentence using your phonics knowledge to help you.

You DO NOT need to print this sheet, you can complete your work on a whiteboard (just like we do in Phonics lessons) or into your book.


This week we are continuing with our unit about fables.

Today you will be planning your own fable.

Read through the slides and think carefully about your answers, you will find your activity in the slides.

You can base your fable on the fable we’ve been reading – The Hare and The Tortoise. You could just change the two characters and still have them racing, or use the same characters but have them doing a different sort of competition. Or you could change more, it’s up to you!

You can listen to me reading the slides out loud if you find this easier than reading yourself.


Today we are continuing our learning on doubling and halving.

Today we are going to look at how to halve a tens number.

You can listen to me reading the slides out loud if you find this easier than reading yourself:


Look through the PDF document.  Your activity is included within the slides - make sure you show your working out.

Outdoor Learning

Wednesday is normally our slot to visit the school woodlands which we know you really enjoy doing so we have come up with an outdoor learning challenge for you to have a go at either in your garden or on your daily exercise.  Have fun!


In science, we are continuing with our topic exploring materials and their properties.

Today we are going to repeat the investigation we did last week with a slight change, we are going to look at how different liquids affect our cotton wool.

Start by reading through the slides in the PDF.  Then complete the 'Science task' sheet - if you cannot print the sheet simply record your work straight onto your paper.  Finally, carry out the experiment and see what happens.
