It's our goal to keep our community together and smile during these extraordinary covid-19 times. Our website and Instagram accounts will provide the perfect platform for keeping in touch. We will add ideas for activities, music, stories and encourage creativity through sites such as Pinterest. Also look out for some 'funny' jokes from joke books! (a Christmas Cabaret favourte). The children can then interact with them and send us some jokes in return, through the comment section on Instagram or they can send photos of projects they have seen and tried out, comments, stories, activities etc to the new dedicated email address firstname.lastname@example.org. We will take a look at these and share some on the website or Instagram to keep us all in touch. We will also create video mesages from the team to share, and are exploring other ideas for the weeks ahead. Stay safe and keep in touch.
Dear Mrs Cowan, Mrs Hopwood and Miss Hammill, Here are a few photos of our holiday
home learning. We visited the beach, blew bubbles and played in the water. I had a socially distanced chess game with my grandparents and won! We also visited the zoo and spent time gardening.
It’s been a hot and busy week at home. Here are some photos of my
My week has been packed full of home learning, here are a few photos.
Dear Miss Hammill, I enjoyed doing these worksheets at home this week.
Do you like my 'Tree of Life' artwork?
I have been loving the Topic activities this week, especially learning about pointillism. We found a video on YouTube called ‘Art with Mati and Dada - George Seurat that showed a brilliant pointillist artist and a few of his pieces. Here’s a photo of me working hard on my NHS painting which will proudly be displayed on our front window when it dries.

I really enjoyed making a paper boat and experimenting with sinking and floating. We made some great predictions and tested them out in the sunshine!
I enjoyed creating bubble mixture and trying different tools to create the best bubbles (cookie cutters were the winners!).
I also enjoyed exploring different textures to create rubbings.
For my home learning I did some tree bark rubbings in the woods, some research and drawing of a turtle. I also helped my brother create some home-made bubble mixture and made my own wand.
I enjoyed Anancy and Mr Dry-Bones, here is my picture along with my sunflower art. I'm really looking forward to coming to school next week!

I'm learning how to look after my new kittens (Fluffy and Dougie)
Tuesday 16th June
I have been busy doing some worksheets and joining in with my sister in walking/hopping on the pirates plank! Here is my nature picture of a sunflower.
Monday 15th June
We made a bubble mixture in the garden and tried lots of different wand shapes with pipe cleaners. We found they all made spherical bubbles when we whooshed them through the air (blowing didn’t work so well). The pipe cleaners weren't as effective as the plastic wands as they soaked the mixture up.
Dear Mr Eld, Here are a few things I have been doing this week.
Tuesday 9th June
Dear Mrs Cowan and Mrs Hopwood, I made a Nature Picture for Beavers, and have been busy dissecting some wildflowers and making a wild flower fact book. I love reading to my little sister. Together we made a den in the garden, a great place to hide from the sun!
Dear Miss Hammill, I have been busy working on cutting/sticking/patterns, eye spy counting and threading laces. I climbed a tree (during a mini beast hunt), and practised my letters and numbers
Monday 8th June
Dear Miss Millington, we had lots of fun learning all about the planets. My favorite planet is Earth because it’s where we live and it has oxygen. I made Mercery my fizzy planet I also made some marble planets . Your virtual hug was appreciated so much you were hugged to sleep!
We have really enjoyed angle hunting!
We are also concentrating on reading, Spag and handwriting ans liked the mystery of the missing football.
Dear Miss Hammill, I have been very busy and wanted to send you some photos...
(I even joined in with some of my brother’s lessons!)
Miss Hammill's Story Time - this week she is reading 'The Princess and the Wizzard ' by Julia Donaldson
Due to the covid 19 lockdown we have had to change our plans for Bee Week but we still want to celebrate World Bee Day on the 20th May 2020 and Miss Doeman (and her mummy) have been very busy making Busy Bees which can be seen all around the school. Please click on the play button below to take the virtual tour of our busy bees!
Friday 22nd May
Miss Doeman captured this slow motion video of a bee collecting nectar from a poppy growing in her garden. If you listen carefully you can hear the sound of the bee's wings!
I wanted to share this video with my teachers and friends. I have been enjoying learning about bees this week. We found a tired bee in our bathroom and offered him some honey and water. He spent half an hour with us before flying away.
We have been concentrating on direct speech and punctuation this week.
We chose a photograph and made speech bubbles before turning into direct speech. The Gingerbread man investigation and the Florence Nightingale work was really enjoyable. Helping my sister with segmenting and blending words was also great fun and we loved the nature hunt.
I used a dictionary to write my acrostic poem about Goldfield
Tuesday 19th May
Today we focused on our artwork section of home learning. We had already completed fact files on various artists and decided to paint a favourite piece of artwork by Picasso. Keeping with the the art theme we also also created a finger painting of the hungry caterpillar, all the colours depict the food that the caterpillar ate on his journey!
