Introducing 'Ready For Seven.'

In your final term at Carlton Primary Academy, we are now looking towards keeping your skills sharp for your induction into year seven.

Each day, I will post you a 'Ready For Seven' learning booklet.

It is important that you attempt as much of the work as you can in preparation for your entry into KS3.

Stamina will be so important in year seven, as too will your ability to manage your own learning and homework.

There will be a balance of topics set throughout the week, though on Mondays, there will be a particular focus on English and Mathematics.

Please upload your learning to Seesaw if you are able to do so in order for me to give feedback on your hard work.

Remember, the more effort you put into your summer term, the easier autumn term in year seven will be!

Take care everyone.

Family Fortunes (Game)


THURSDAY, MARCH 26th, 2020

Hello all of you!

        I hope that you are all keeping well and entertaining yourselves!

        It is only in recent days that I have appreciated just how busy you lot have kept me since September! 

        I want to start by saying a huge well done and thank you to all the children who are working so hard on their IXL and Seesaw projects. It would be fantastic to see even more of you logging on to these sites using your individual passwords and accessing the many activities on offer. With so many creative tasks and projects, as well as English and Maths activities to keep your skills robust, you won't have time to feel bored!

        A little skills rehearsal each day will put you in great stead for secondary school so attempt to spend some time each weekday trying out the variety of tasks on offer. If for whatever reason you have misplaced your codes, please contact school where someone will be able to provide you with your Seesaw and IXL logins again.

        Each day, I am safely completing a 1 hour power walk around my village. It not only keeps me very fit, it also fires those powerful endorphins for the day ahead. In which ever way you can around the house, try to stay fit and balance your activities throughout the day. A schedule or timetable for the day ahead is a brilliant idea and it also helps to keep you motivated. One of my jobs today, once I have responded to your online work, is to tackle the back garden! Not one of my favourite chores admittedly but again, structure is a brilliant motivator. Help your parents around the house wherever you can and maybe discover a talent you never knew you had in the process!

        Our time together has been cut short. However, the next step of your education is a huge leap. By keeping motivated and attempting just a handful of the tasks online each day will help you in September. 

        To those of you logging onto IXL and Seesaw each day, you are amazing! Know that I will endeavour to respond to your  work within twelve hours of you posting it. Seesaw is also a brilliant way for you to keep in contact with your friends too!

        Keep logging onto our class webpage for updates as well as following us on Twitter.

        Most importantly, stay safe and look after each other.

        You're all amazing and I hope to see you all soon.

        Take care.

        Mr. R. Smith wink


Your first port of call for your child's home learning should be via the 'Seesaw' webpage using your child's unique login details. Simply search 'seesaw login.'

Here, you will find a variety of activities for your child to work on, updated and reviewed daily covering as many subjects as possible across the week.

Please encourage your child to attempt a minimum of two activities per day - it really will make the difference when they start secondary school in September.

Thank you for your continuing support.
