This week Owen was keen to start his new pack of work: he enjoyed doing his rainbow worksheets and researching volcanos. Owen particularly enjoyed doing 2 of his science experiments on saturation and soluble items and did a lovely still life drawing of some fruit. Each week we try and do some baking and this week we attempted a fresh cream cherry sponge cake – it tastes really good for our 1st attempt. He is continuing to do his Maths Factor challenge each day and revised maths on Education City and completed his Active Learn. He enjoyed the maths Mrs Welton set on the Hamilton trust website and the A.I program Mrs Emms sent him to do. Owen would like to say hi to all his friends and teachers and that he’s missing them loads and loves the messages on show and tell each week but knows that home is still the safest place to be. Xx
“Hello Everyone, Kiera here.
Evelyn is very happy this week as she has learnt to ride her bike and has lost a tooth!
Hey all!! Hope everyone is well and keeping safe! ? The last few weeks has been a blur and we realised we missed the VE Day show and Tell week so here’s 2 weeks rolled into 1. ?
VE Day was so much fun we had a street party in our front garden with all our neighbours, decorated the house and played music ? throughout the day, baked some rice crispy cakes and had an afternoon tea for dinner which was beautiful. ??
As the weather was heating up ☀️ Darcy enjoyed having some fun in her paddling pool and dad made it even better by putting her slide into it! ?♀️
Darcy has also been maintaining her school work and completed some writing tasks this week. ✏️
We hope all staff are staying safe and we miss you all. Speak soon. Xx ??
We all wanted to say “Thankyou” to the staff at both schools who have worked to make sure that “school days” have been fun whilst we both work!!
Isaac has also been continuing his virtual ride to London! He is currently on the way to Welwyn and seems to think he will be at Buckingham palace soon!
We hope everyone is keeping well.
Looking at the photographs I have taken this week, they mainly feature rainbows ??
Amy decided to decorate the rainbow and apple picture Mrs Barraclough sent, using pom-poms. We mounted it on card and stood it in the window. It makes me smile every time I go outside, so I hope it has the same effect on passers by.
Amy also carried out the rainbow experiment and chose Cheer Bear to show lines of symmetry.
Sam and Amy have continued to work through their Home Learning Packs and online activities. It made me feel very proud to hear Sam helping Amy with her Roman Numerals and congratulating her on her artwork ?.
Sam enjoyed researching volcanoes this week and plotting the most dangerous ones. This led him to drawing a map of the world and discovering the location of countries he had heard of, but didn’t necessarily know where they were situated. Sam also learned their capital cities. Then he drew a map of the UK and noted some cities here too. He tested himself afterwards and was happy to find he could remember their location.
Amy made a delicious, heart-shaped, chocolate cake and practised her piping skills. She was so proud and considers this to be the best cake she has made so far ?.
Exercise is a must for us now that Amy has taken over the kitchen! Sam enjoyed a long bike ride with Dave this week (a rare picture of Sam attached!).
Sending much love and best wishes,
Leanne, Dave, Sam and Amy xx
This week Jess has been hard at work with her new home learning pack. Luckily for us the pack included a recipe for ‘Rainbow Salad’ which was so tasty that Jess made it 2 days running! ?? We also heard about some tadpoles, so took the opportunity to investigate. We will hopefully visit regularly to watch them grow and develop into frogs.
Stay safe everyone ?
