Gertrude Margaret Lowthian Bell was an English writer, traveller, political officer, administrator, and archaeologist. She spent much of her life exploring and mapping the Middle East, and became highly influential to British imperial policy-making as an Arabist due to her knowledge and contacts built up through extensive travels.

Home Learning

Children are set weekly home learning tasks on a Friday. This is set on Spelling Shed and Maths Shed. Your child's log in is in the back of their reading diary. If you have any issues accessing these websites, please let one of the staff know.

Children are expected to read with an adult daily and this forms part of their home learning requirement.


At Haslam Park, we encourage and foster a love of reading. Our children love to read and love to read as many books as they can each year! To ensure your child reaches their full potential in reading it is vital that they read every night.

When we read with children in school we help them build their fluency by supporting their word reading and we ask questions to help support their understanding. Below are the areas we ask the children questions in and some examples. Children use the 'reading dogs' to help them remeber each skill.

If you would like any help with supporting your child to read please speak with a member of staff. 

1a - Vocabulary

Checking that your child understands the words they are reading.

Can you find a word that means the same as scary?

1b - Retrieval 

Checking that your child understands what they are reading.

Where was Biff when they found the key?

1c - Sequencing 

Checking that your child understands the order of the story they are reading.

What happened at the beginning of the story?

1d - Inference 

Checking that your child can infer (use clues in the text) to work out why something has happened. 

How does Chip feel? What words in the text tell you this?

1e - Predicting

Checking that your child can use evidence from the text to predict what will happen next.

What do you think will be in the box? Why do you think that?
