A Message from your teacher….week 4
Dear Children and your families,
Week two of the Easter holidays looked very much full of Easter creativity, chocolate eating, cake making and walking in the country side enjoying fresh air with your families. Just Perfect. I love to see the variety of what you have been up to.
Your bakery skills are really taking off- the volcano cake that Harry and Charlie made looks stunning and Owen your sausage rolls look delicious. Lauren and Chloe brought some of their chocolate muffins to school and left them in the foyer for us. Thank you so much. We all shared and they were amazing- so chocolatey too. Joseph making sushi isn’t bakery but oh so impressive- I really wouldn’t know where to start with sushi.
As always activity is high on your daily list- so it should be- swimming in the pool for Harrison and Lauren– was it warm?? Darcy practising her gymnastics in the garden sunshine- such lovely poise. Eloise and Theo climbing trees- do you have a favourite one to climb?? I DO!!! Evelyn with her ballet dancing too- beautiful toes. I love the Family Sports Day- Sam and Amy was there a parents race I wonder?? Ben and Jake have cycled 64 miles and counting during Lock Down- you deserve a medal at 100 miles boys. High on the list of achievements must be Daniel now riding his bike without stabilisers- well done Daniel we are very proud of you. Many of you keeping up with Joe Wicks each day too- even dressing up with him on. You are all amazing.
The DIY skills that I am watching you all develop means that we will have many volunteers to help Mr Courtney when we get back to school. Owen looks to have been busy in the garden helping his dad, and Lily and Dominic can help us when we get to decking and Cerys and Euan can help us with block paving FAB!!! Apprentices for Mr C!
The gardeners amongst you are having a field day with all this gorgeous sunshine. I know it makes it difficult to stay indoors, and it can make you want to go out and see your friends but there is so much you can do in your own outside space- even if you don’t have very much, to keep you occupied. Our radishes are really coming on- we have loads of shoots- unfortunately we don’t really like radishes!! Maybe we should have vegetable trade-offs with all you gardeners Theo and Eloise, and Evelyn.
Jess has been so busy too and when mum was working in school last week supervising children Jess tackled the nature area and the weeds and nettles- Mrs Methven is so so grateful. Daisy and Evie that coin looks so interesting. What a find when you were digging. Who is the king on it?
Many of you are doing things on the internet that other people might really enjoy so we are going to make sure we share the links. Chloe and Lauren are really enjoying The Carol Vorderman 30 day maths challenge which looks excellent and goes up to children of secondary school too https://www.themathsfactor.com/the-30-day-challenge/ and Harry and Charlie recommend draw with Rob (Rob Biddulph) which looks fun.
Some of you have kept working during the holidays and that’s fine too. Nathan I am impressed with all your hard work and the improvement in your scores. . . but I really want to see your rocket- it sounds epic. Well done.
I am so pleased that your Christian Values never fade and we can see this in all that you are doing for others. Amy the pebble rainbows for people to see around the village are a lovely uplifting idea which will make folk smile and so is your NHS rainbow Maisie– thank you. Abigail sewing scrubs and scrub bags with mum is wonderful and a fabulous practical way to support our key workers and Joseph making PPE visors is such an important contribution to keeping our key workers safe as they work hard to keep us safe too. I am proud of you all. Head teacher’s stickers waiting for you when we return.
Take care this week and as we start the summer term remember to make lots of time for each other, keep busy, keep smiling, keep safe and keep reading!!
Love Mrs Murray
Take care everyone,
Harrison– It looks like you’ve been having a lot of fun in the sun! That paddling pool looks very impressive. I’m glad you had a fun Easter weekend and I hope the Easter Bunny left you lots of clues on your egg hunt! How lovely to see Lauren’s smiling face and you two enjoying being together. I’m impressed to hear about your bike riding and jumping skills – you should be really proud of your achievements. 🙂 Keep Smiling x
Joseph, it was fantastic to see you have been making visors for PPE. I feel sure your efforts have been much appreciated. It did not surprise us in the least to hear that you have been preparing your favourite food, Sushi, for your dad’s birthday. We hope he had a great day.
Dominic, we were impressed to see your flexibility when exercising with Joe Wicks. You will be our first point of call when warming up for PE. Your quiet, gentle nature showed through as you were communicating with your new four-legged friends. We are lucky to be able to be outside and surrounded by such greenery. We noticed the great organisation or colours that went into the preparation of painting a rainbow. Dominic can we see the finished product please?
Owen, another busy week. Making your own sausage rolls is impressive – were they the best ever? We were a little concerned at seeing you sitting so comfortably in the Bar Chair Owen but we have to assume you were just trying it for size!
Sam, thanks for giving us some ideas for future obstacle races. the blue mats are getting a little tired and we doubt we will be able to use the new ones for such an unruly event. Continuing on a similar theme, the wheel barrow race did not seem that strenuous for you. Did you try pushing your dad instead?
Abigail, nice to see you back with some photos, we have a feeling we know what these bags are designed for. Well done you. Knowing how to use a sewing machine is a great life skill. Can’t wait to see what you come up with next week – maybe it’s a step too far to see a beautifully made and embroidered cushion?
We are looking forward to seeing your happy faces next week and maybe a few more.
Mrs Emms and Mrs Welton.
Wow Harry, you look like you’ve been very busy with lots of Easter activities! I love the Easter card and that cake looks absolutely amazing- I bet it tasted good! You managed to find a lot of eggs on your Easter egg hunt… I wonder if you have saved one for me?! Keep enjoying the sun and having lots of fun outside. I am looking forward to seeing some birthday Show and Tell pictures next week!
It looks like you have been very busy Lily! How cool that you get to look after your neighbour’s dog… my dog is keeping me company at the moment, last week I even tried to get her to jump some hurdles! She spent more time running around the jumps than over them. I love the look of those biscuits, I made some chocolate chip cookies and cupcakes this week! It is lovely that you have been able to FaceTime your friends and have a chat with them, we are all missing our friends and family. Keep up the Joe Wicks and exercise in the sunshine!
Lovely to see you enjoying a bike ride Cerys, I have been going on lots of walks, but I think I might go for a ride this week! I have seen the email you sent me with the drawings you have done… all I can say is WOW, I am impressed!
Another busy week full of discovery Evie, looks like great fun! I am sure the rest of the class would like to see the coin you found, perhaps you could bring it in when we are back at school. A night camping in the Bongo sounds great too! I wonder if you stayed up late?
I really loved seeing everyone’s Show and Tell pictures this week, you are all getting up to so many wonderful things. So much gardening, baking, exercising and DIY! Well done Joseph for making protective visors and Abigail for making scrub bags… you should both be very proud of yourselves.
Stay safe everyone and keep having fun! Miss Sanderson xx
