Discover the marvellous world of classical music with David Walliams!
What's both MARVELLOUS and MUSICAL? David Walliams's Marvellous Musical Podcast, that's what.
You might well have heard of Mozart – and you've definitely heard his music. But did you know that he loved fart jokes and had a pet starling? Or that Beethoven was so scruffy he was once arrested for being a tramp.
And have you heard the story of the ballerina who was so jealous of one of her fellow dancers that she released a flock of chickens during a performance?
Or that Clara Schumann was actually a robot? Wait. That one's not true.
Join David Walliams for a marvellous musical journey and meet some familiar names along the way – from the 19th-century heart throb Franz Liszt to the famously grumpy Ludwig van Beethoven.
There is a quiz at the bottom of the page too if you fancy it...
This is a book all about the Coronavirus. Have a read if you want to, it explains what it is, how we can help and talks about some of the emotions you may be feeling at the moment.
Happy Monday everyone! These next 2 weeks should have been our Easter holidays but as everyone is still being asked to stay at home, we are still putting work on the website Monday - Thursday this week.
From Tuesday next week, we will be putting some websites on that you may find helpful and fun, so nothing to do in your books next week!
Keep sending messages on the guestbook, we love hearing from you! Ask someone to send pics of your work to email@example.com
Keep smiling Year 6 - you are all amazing!
Hi everyone. I hope you are all safe and well. Just a note about the work being set.
Parents/guardians: - the work that is set daily is to be completed in their exercise books. As long as each piece is dated and with the title (eg maths or literacy) them can just write the answer. Some of the maths questions will need them to write out the question first.
If they don't achieve everything every day, this is ok. The last thing we want is for the children to be getting upset and stressed over a piece of work.
You are your child's primary educator and you must decide what is best for your child.
There are lots of online games and activities on the bottom of this page and on the home page of the website if they need something different. There should also be lots of work left in the pack that was sent home for the first week. If they want to carry on with anything in there instead, that is fine too!
We are trying to arrange the work to make it easier for the children to access so you may see a slight change next week. Please remember you can email us direct if you have a question or query:
firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you, you are doing a great job!
Children: Hi everyone! Missing you all. Hope you are able to do the work from the website, remember to write out your answers in your green exercise book. Sometimes just the answer will do, for maths, write out the question first.
Please don't worry if you don't manage to do all the work on some days - this is ok. Please don't get upset or angry because you don't understand something or you can't do it - this is ok. If you have had a go, then leave it. Go and do something else - star jumps, play with the dog, watch TV, read a book, wash up (yes, children can wash up!!) tidy your room, ring a friend for a chat, make a time capsule... this is ok!!
I am still here for you and am thinking of you every day!
Hi Year 6! This is where you can ask a question about any of the work that has been set or simply to keep in touch to say hi.

Hi Maddy, if you haven't already started your story you could begin by telling me about the other dogs that lived in the forest. Describe them using expanded noun phrases, use adverbs to tell me how they moved around the forest, use adjectives to describe the forest... Don't over think it, just go for it!
Hi Jensen, you can just carry on with the story. Say hi to Spencer too!
