Class Twelve

Catch Up Meeting on Zoom 


Dear Parents/Carers,

We have arranged a short meeting for children in Class Twelve to have the opportunity to have a quick catch up with their friends and teacher. The meeting will take place at 1pm on Wednesday 15th July. We hope that you will be able to join us. The ID code and password will be sent in a text message to all parents. In order to help safeguard all of the people involved, we ask that all parents make it known to the teacher that they are in the room at the start of the meeting. Parents do not need to remain on camera if they choose not to.


Yours sincerely

Mr Evans

Assistant Headteacher

The Grange Primary School     



Please watch the following videos and discuss them with an adult at home. Afterwards, you can challenge yourself by completing the online quizzes available.


Each day children will have a Maths, English and reading activity to complete on Purple Mash or on White Rose maths. Children will also have a weekly project to complete, this is usually PSHE related.


English and reading 

See purple mash 2 dos and video challenge below. Children can also read books at home and complete additional tasks on Purple Mash. This might include a book review, character profile or story retell. 

Common exception words (found at the front of reading records) can be used as weekly spelling practice and tests.

Any writing activities can be completed on 2write on Purple Mash and emailed to me via 2email. 



  • Make a list of the human behaviours that Pip shows. What effect does this have?
  • Listen to audio description version and then write your own. What do you need to include to make the story come alive?
  • Write a character description of Pip, or the trainer.
  • What does Pip’s behaviour tell you about her? Make a table showing the things that she does in one column and what that tells you about her personality in the other.
  • Stop the film at 0:54. How is Pip feeling? How do you know? Compare to 2:24. Write a description of Pip’s body language at both points.
  • Make a storyboard of the video.
  • Write the story from the point of view of the trainer.
  • Stop the film at 0:13. The construction equipment in the background will become very important later on. This technique is known as foreshadowing. Look at a range of fiction books and collect other examples of this technique.
  • Write up Pip’s experience as a newspaper report to be put on the entrance hall wall.
  • Discuss how the newspaper stories on the wall (for example at 0:33) are used to tell the story. Why have they been included? What do they add?
