Half term homework

Over half term, it is really important that Class 4 learn their lines for our upcoming production of 'Pirates of the Currybean'. They should also begin to practise the songs which can be found on YouTube. 

Spellings have also been uploaded to the website and onto Spelling Shed. The first spelling test back will be on Tuesday 6th June.

Children have also been invited to create a piece of work to be displayed at the Great Haywood exhibition. Details can be found below: 

The memorial hall will be holding a Great Haywood Exhibition on the weekend of June 24th and 25th and Anson pupils have been invited to get involved! We welcome the children to create a piece of work (it could be anything! A drawing, some writing, pictures, a project) to be displayed during the event.

The three topics that the children should think about are:


1. The history of the school

2. Transport links to the village

3. Great Haywood’s links to Shugborough


We were so impressed with the work that the children created for the centenary exhibition held last year and can’t wait to see what the children produce this time!


The children should bring their finished piece into school on Monday 5th June.

  • Use Education City and find a game based on a topic your child is unsure of, or have worked on in class that week to build on their understanding.
  • In addition to this, under the ‘Maths’ section of the Education City site, there is a ‘Times Tables’ tab which contains songs and games your child can play to improve their times tables knowledge.
