Some of you may need to work from home. Please find below a list of links and activities. This page will be updated daily with an English activity, a maths activity, reading comprehension and arithmetic practice. Our afternoon lessons will be covered in the Learning Mats that have gone home with the children. If you would like to see which lessons we do on which day please see our class timetable below. Please keep checking the class page for updates.

*Further, further update!*

Good news! You can now contact me directly via the following email without having to go through the office! I look forward to hearing from you all! Mr. Thorpe


*Further Update 27.3.20*

If you want to keep active and fancy something a little bit different try out this link to 'Cosmic Kids Yoga' a child friendly YouTube yoga channel that positive thinking and mindfulness!


*Update 27.3.20*

Good morning everyone! Happy Friday! We've made it to the end of our first week of working at home! Well done for working so hard. A big thank you to everyone who has emailed me via the office to let me know what they have been up to! I've seen children exercising and completing their mini beast hunts. I am missing you all so seeing pictures or videos of what you've been up to does bring a smile to my face! If you haven't already done so have a go at the art challenge I set yesterday. You will be able to find it under yesterday's work tab. Don't forget to email your finished versions to the office, thank you to everyone who has already done this! Also, if you fancy a virtual day out, Chester Zoo are doing a virtual day at the zoo on Facebook. Follow the link below to gain access to the feed. It starts at 10 and goes on until 16:30. Have a wonderful day!

Keep staying safe and having fun,

Mr. Thorpe


*Update* 26.3.20

Good morning Chestnut! Hope you are all having a lovely day and are enjoying spending time with your family on such a lovely day! Today is usually art day! If you would like to do something a little bit different I have an art challenge for you to complete. Details are under today's work! As ever, enjoy yourself and stay safe,

Mr. Thorpe


*Update* 25.3.20

Hello everyone! Apologies for the lateness of this post. We appear to have had a few technical issues up here at Castle Thorpe. I'm pleased to say they all seem to have been sorted now! Tomorrow is Thursday, and as the children know that means it's PE day! If you would like to follow the scheme of work we do in school please follow the link to PE Hub. They have set up games and activities to keep us active! I also hope to have set up my first blog tomorrow. If I can't I will post up the activity on here and I'll see if we can share our work in other ways. 

Stay safe,

Mr. Thorpe


*Further Update 24.3.20

It is really important the children keep an interest in reading. Follow the link to find free ebooks from Oxford Owl. Just go down to the 'free Ebook library' button and register. The link seems a bit odd so it may take you a few goes as it did me!

Mr. Thorpe


*Update* 24.3.20

I have started to upload a daily poem or thought. If you would like to use them, they will be up on the daily work subpage. 

Stay safe,

Mr. Thorpe


*Update* 23.3.20

Over the next week or so, some of your work will have three levels of difficulty. Select the one you think is right for you.

Stay safe and look after each other.

Mr. Thorpe

A message from Mr. Thorpe 24.3.20

Good morning everyone! I hope you are all well and are enjoying a safe and peaceful week. I just want to let you know of a few updates. 

  First of all, if you have not already done so, check out Joe Wicks on YouTube. His workouts are lots of fun and a great way to stay active! There certainly kept me active yesterday! I also wanted to direct people to the White Rose Hub website. This is the scheme of work we use for maths in school. They have started to put up work along with an instruction video for parents. Next week I will be putting up which activities to do. I will put up the link so you can all have a look. 

   This is an unusual time and I know everyone is working hard to stay safe. I hope you are all staying safe and enjoying time with your families. Hopefully this will all be over before too long and we will all be back together soon.


Stay safe and look after each other,


Mr. Thorpe
