Mrs Hunt

Hello and welcome to Morpurgo Class. My name is Mrs Hunt and I have worked at Linacre Primary School for over 10 years now! A little bit about me: I have two children who I love spending time with, I enjoy going on holidays both in the UK and abroad, I like baking all different concoctions and I love reading :)


Throughout the year I will upload lots of work, showcasing activities that we participate in. We ask that you please check your child's book bag every night to ensure that you are receiving all the information that we send home. Additional information can also be found here or alternatively feel free to see me at the end of the day. 



Please aim to read with your child at least 3 times a week. It will really help them to progress in all curriculum areas. In their book bags, children bring home a staged reading book to share with you. Please remember to make sure reading is an enjoyable experience and record any reading whatsoever in their reading diary. Sharing books is a fantastic way to develop good communication and language skills also. Talking about books further develops their comprehension.


Our class author this year is Michael Morpurgo and I look forward to sharing some of his stories throughout the year! 



Children will receive spellings each Friday and a test will be set for the following Friday. For their weekly maths homework, children should log in to TTRockstars.


Homework projects will be set half termly and given out the first week of new half term to be completed over the 6 weeks. 



During the spring term, P.E will take place on Tuesday afternoon and Thursday morning.

Our P.E kit includes the following:

  • White polo shirt
  • Navy blue shorts
  • Black pumps 

​During the colder months children can also wear the following:

  • Dark tracksuit bottoms 
  • School jumper  


Please place PE kits in a PE bag. These are then left in school and sent home half-termly in order to be cleaned and returned. Thank you.


If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and see me at the end of the day.


Homework Projects

As part of our history topic The Industrial Revolution, children were asked to complete a number of tasks and create certain structures related to it. I'm sure you'll agree that what was presented to us was wonderful and children had put such hard work into it.

Year 6 were lucky enough to be visited by Ultimate Kids' Coaches today (22.10.21). They arranged a game of dodgeball full of competition between teams. All children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and came away energised and full of life.

Bulb Planting and Tree Identification

Y6 were selected - along with Y4 - to help Green Sefton plant some wild garlic bulbs within the green space at North Park. We had a lovely afternoon in the autumn sun. The children all thoroughly enjoyed themselves, put forward some great questions to Jane (from Green Sefton) and learnt numerous ways they could help in their local area.

Mental Health Awareness Week

For Mental Health Week, we were visited by Chrish from the charity 52 Lives. He explained that acts of kindness can go a long way and it can be a domino effect. It may seem awkward at first to give someone a compliment or show kindness in some way. But if we all did one kind thing a week just think how much kindness could be spread. Try it and see for yourself! 

Identifying different fossils


As part of our science topic for evolution and inheritance, Year 6 analysed different fossils that were found thousands of years ago. We had a go at pronouncing the word correctly, where they were found and what they once were before they began their process of fossilisation.
