Hi Everyone (weeks 3 & 4)
“I have been keeping myself busy making bird feeders out of milk bottles and baking brownies.
I have enjoyed swimming in my pool and having water fights with my brother, Robbie. We both lost because our Mum got us with the hose, it was such fun and exciting.
I have been getting lots of exercise playing netball and walking my dog, Ava-Vader.
I am missing school loads and cannot wait to be back.”
Hi everyone (week 5)
“Well this week has been tough but I know we have to do it to be safe and look after our NHS and save lives.
I have been busy with my schoolwork and doing more maths (It is not my favourite!) and trying my hardest. I have signed up to ‘Carol Vordermans Mathfactor’ on the internet (Mum says it is free to join whilst the pandemic is happening if anyone would like to try it) and I have been awarded with topic 17 ‘Grand Genius’, that made me happy.
I go on loads of walks with my dog Ava-Vader and have fed the birds up our hill. I’ve been chilling in my tent in the garden and when I am charged up I have a bounce on my trampoline.
This week I am enjoying watching the satellites being launched and watching them late at night. It is amazing. Me and Mum sat out for 2 hours last night watching them all in the sky. I love space and the stars and I am going to learn more about it this week with Mum and the internet.
I cant wait to see everybody’s pictures and my friends<
See you next week
Love Kiera ? byeeeee x”
We’ve had a busy few weeks with lots of activities and learning. Sock puppets, den building, water park in the back garden, Easter hunt, walks for exercise occasionally, making musical instruments, singing the iSing pop songs, phonics and plenty of reading. Cole is missing not being able to see his grandparents so doing plenty of FaceTime. Looking forward to more challenges.
Alex has had a busy few weeks learning to bake. He makes the most amazing Yorkshire Puddings. He also made a chocolate cake and homemade chicken nuggets.
He has built a treehouse and done lots of walking. He is particularly missing Young Rangers and has learnt how to use a wood axe and done lots of gardening too.
This weeks activities with Euan and Cerys
Cerys made a musical instrument – ‘singing straws‘
Cerys Enjoyed planting pots up for the garden
Euans science experiment went rather well!! Diet Coke with bicarbonate soda
James has been working on the schoolwork sent by Mrs Barraclough. He has been enjoying making and painting a Roman shield in the garden and supported by his faithful friend Daisha.
This week Harry went for a 3 mile long bike ride and saw lots of rainbows at people’s houses, so he and his sister’s made their own which was a little tricky with Autumn let loose with the crayons
Victoria has been doing great and did her earth day picture today (22nd April). We’ve covered pretty much all topics but it’s too much work to send, so here’s her wonderful picture of an owl, mouse and rabbit, she made a wesak lantern as we learnt about Buddha in R.E., we did a science experiment where she had to see what happened when she froze a figure in a yoghurt pot and she’s made some gingerbread men too. 🙂 We’ve been going on long walks too as you can see Blayze and Victoria were tired out ?
Alex made a propagator out of an egg box and a punnet carton for the lid he planted Lambs lettuce seeds.
After 2 weeks off for Easter, Seth has been busy reading, doing English and maths. But he’s also had time for paddling pool fun! He also had a visit from Mrs Hammond and Mrs Jackson! Seth pretended to be shy!
This week Harry had his 8th Birthday!!! Before his birthday we did some baking, Charlie helped decorate the cake for Harry and then they both made and decorated buns. Even though it wasn’t the birthday we originally planned for Harry, he had a great day. We played cricket and rounders in the garden, had a bbq and then had a family sleepover in the living room staying up late watching films and eating sweets and cake! Harry got lots of Lego for his birthday so they have both been busy making new sets and playing with them. We’ve also started a time capsule this week and have been doing our school work.
This week Owen has been busy with school work again: he’s completed his active learn, education city and reading plus online. He’s also been practicing his long division and long multiplication. For literacy, science and art he’s written about earthquakes, and an Arctic Fox and designed and described his own endangered lizard. Joe Wicks has provided P. E lessons as well. For a bit of down time, he’s made flapjack and also rung his sister in Sheffield who is still working and studying as she’s a student nurse, he hopes all his friends and teachers are well and misses seeing everyone x
Jake and Ben have had another busy week of biking, walking and generally enjoying themselves. They made a pizza for tea with the recipe that Mrs Barraclough sent with Jakes school work and they have started a time capsule that also came with Jakes work. They tried a rainbow on kitchen roll which worked better than I thought it would!! Ben is now on 99miles of biking, Jake is 5miles less as he came walking with me one day! Ben also found a lady bird and made it a play area, he called it David but it seems to of gone now!
Jacob has been busy weighing out ingredients and making these delicious buns ? Jacob’s also been enjoying some school work and playing beat the button maths games on the computer!
Ella-Marie has been enjoying some school work and some maths games online, aswell as enjoying the crafts that Mrs Hammond and Mrs Jackson gave her to make cards to post to some of her friends ?
Blake had a very lucky visit from the Easter bunny and has been keeping busy with his endless drawing (here is just a couple of his favourites), working through his phonics worksheets and of course a bit of silliness to keep his mummy smiling all the time.
Chloe has been super busy making yummy sausage rolls and making her picture to post, also lots of walks. Chloe went on a nature walk and helped me create a display for my college work. Chloe enjoying her work in the garden and making a chocolate cake
Darcy has had a fun week in the sunshine.
She’s planted some vegetables in her own garden and painted some vegetables on the signs to show where they had been planted.
She’s also helped her daddy repair the grass by putting some new grass seed down.
Her doggy George had to lend a hand too but mainly got in the way! Lol.
The twins have been busy getting back into learning and have been working hard. They are also enjoying completing the challenges. They have been extra creative by making Sock Bunnies! We have also planted some sunflower seeds a few weeks ago and they have been taking good care of them! We will keep you updated on their progress.

Isaac (year 4) has been busy the past few weeks but we kept forgetting to send an email in time!
He’s worked out how far it is to London, then worked out how far a route in the village is. He has then worked out how many laps were needed to get to London! He’s now nearly at Stamford! He’s raising money for the NHS charity! He’s done an interview with Lincs fm too!
He has also dug a wildlife pond and area. We are enjoying watching the tadpoles change that we adopted
He’s learnt how to cook lots of different things and makes a great tuna pasta salad lunch!
He’s done some great DIY and now is actually quite useful! Wardrobe shelves/ door hinges/ gate hanging . .
We have been enjoying some lovely sunsets and clear starry skies –

So this week we have been on lots of long dog walks, having fun with the frisbee and also meeting plenty of friendly horses along the way. Jess also treated us to her very own homemade pizza for tea… delicious! We also had success with growing a rainbow, an experiment we have tried before but we have now discovered that not all kitchen roll works in the same way ?
Jess has also continued her success with the times tables grid with another PB ?
Stay safe everyone ??
Back to some work this week after the Easter break. Eloise has enjoyed researching earthquakes and buildings to withstand them. Theo has been busy with his number bonds.
This has been mixed in with a lot of dog agility training. We have Grandma’s dog Flora staying for lockdown and both Eloise and Theo have taught her to jump and run around the course. Our dog Megan loves doing it too
Eloise and Theo have enjoyed two of the school challenges. Theo made a sculpture in the garden and Eloise made a rainbow out of dropped petals for Earth day.
St George’s Day they both worked together finding red and white objects in the house to recreate the flag.
Stanley has been having lots of fun in the sun. He has also lost his stabilisers and discovered that, when it comes to riding your bike, two wheels are better than four!
