Home Learning


We understand that this could be a very worrying and stressful time for you and your families. At Grove, the staff would like to support you and your children as best we can in keeping your children busy and learning. 


Children need to make sure that they all have their purple mash log ins.



Home Learning 


Well done to all the children in Beech that are continuing to work so hard with their work at home. It is wonderful to see the effort that is being put into their activities and such impressive resilience too at a difficult time for everyone. 


Don't forget that in addition to the Purple Mash activities that are available for all children to complete on a daily basis there are also some wonderful lessons which can be accessed on BBC bitesize using the following link.


If you have any issues at all, please do not hesitate to make contact via the class blog on Purple Mash where my school email address is also available as well as Miss Drew's. I love hearing about what everyone has been doing and I am very much missing seeing lovely Beech class. Keep going as it's almost the end of the Summer term. Continue to stay safe and look after yourselves.

Hello Beech class.


It has been wonderful to see so many of you engaging with your home learning over the last week. I have seen some wonderful pieces of work and examples of perseverance, well done all. Home learning tasks this week will continue to be set on purple mash. There are daily Reading, Maths and English activities as well as topic-based activities. I cannot wait to hear from you this week with what you have been up to.


Furthermore, BBC Bitesize is continuing to provide fantastic home learning lessons with a variety of subjects covered.

Here is the lesson schedule for this week:



Also, please don't forget!


The class blog is being updated regularly on Purple Mash where you can share, catch up or ask any questions that you may have. My email address is still on here incase you have any questions for me!


Take care and stay safe. 


It has been great to receive some fantastic VE day related art work from members of Beech class over the weekend. I have shared various lovely examples in the school's VE Day gallery on Purple Mash and also a few on Beech's history page.


Over the course of the weekend I enjoyed cooking various war time recipes including corned beef hash and apple fritters for my family, which they seemed to enjoy. We also decorated bunting  to display and my daughter enjoyed designing her own t-shirt to wear. Our neighbours played various music from the 40's and there was a lovely atmosphere on the street as people enjoyed picnicking on their drives and chatting from a safe distance. I hope that you were able to celebrate the occasion over the bank holiday weekend at home. If you have any photos that you wish to share we would love to see them.

Stay safe everyone.

Hello Beech class!

Please find the home-learning tasks set through purple mash this week. These include daily maths, English and reading challenges as well as science, history and PSHE. Please encourage your child to complete these tasks daily as it is lovely to see how they are getting on. If they are finding anything too challenging or too easy then please mention this is in the comments on the work so that this can be adjusted. Each day the children have a chapter of a book to complete as well as a comprehension activity – these stories are great to be shared at home.


It has been wonderful to see the work that children have produced and to see what new activities they have been up to at home. I look forward to seeing how they get on this week with the new activities. I have put my email in a blog on purple mash if you need to contact me with any queries about home learning. Any pictures of home learning to put on this page would be appreciated too!

Stay safe and well.

Looking ahead to next week, Friday 8th May, will be a bank holiday to commemorate VE Day and will mark the passing of 75 years since the Second World War ended on May 8th, 1945 in Europe. Britain had fought for six long years and suffered tremendously and this was a day much anticipated and celebrated. I expect many of you will be marking the occasion at home in different ways. We would love to hear what Beech class members and their families do to remember this historical day so please share any photos or send us a message of how you spent your day. We now have a class blog on Purple Mash for children to contact us and you will find our email addresses on the blog entries should you have any questions regarding the school learning activities.


There are many free resources available online which provide excellent information relating to VE day and can be downloaded should your child wish to be creative and would like to participate in such activities as colouring posters to display in your windows, creating bunting and researching war time recipes to make at home. Here are just a few:



With members of the public unable to attend VE Day 75 events, The Royal British Legion is playing a central role in the delivery of a range of remote activity, including:

  • live VE Day 75 livestream at 11.15 a.m.
  • National moments of Remembrance and thanksgiving, including a Two Minute Silence at 11 a.m.
  • UK-wide singalong to Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again at 9 p.m.
  • VE Day learning pack for children aged 7-14 years
  • An evening of memories and music in partnership with the BBC from 8 p.m. on BBC One


Two Minute Silence

At 11 a.m. The Royal British Legion are encouraging people across all generations and communities to take part in a national moment of Remembrance and pause for a Two Minute Silence to honour the service and sacrifice of the Second World War generation and reflect on the devastating impact Covid-19 has had on so many lives across the world.

There is no right or wrong way to take part in the Silence, some may wish to stand at their windows, step outside their homes while remaining distanced from others, watch the broadcast on television, or simply sit in a quiet moment of reflection.

Good work Beech class - Keep going!

Well done to the members of Beech class that have been so busy this week completing lots of different activities on Purple Mash. It has been lovely to hear from you and to see what you can do. Various pieces of work have been shared on the school gallery page and I am sure there will be more joining them. Keep up the great work.

Stay safe.

Week commencing Monday 27th April
