This week Ella-Marie was hopefully having her cast off but instead she’s got a new pink one her arm needs a little more time to heal ? Jacob and Ella have had lots of fun making pizzas from scratch and pretending they work at a pizza shop! Their pizzas were delicious ?
Jake and Ben have had another busy fun week. On Sunday night a swarm of bees came into our garden and then landed in Miss Thompson’s tree! Raymond Reeve came and collected them it was really interesting watching them! We went for a walk in Elsham quarry where they made their names from natural material. We have our pool up now so they have been in that all week from about 12pm until about 7pm they love it. We have done lots of walking and biking and they are on 193 of lockdown biking miles! We have had tea in the garden which is so nice, hopefully this weather stays and we have lots more teas in the garden!
Hope everyone is ok.
Dan, Rachel, Jake and Ben x
“We have had a good week outside. Look at those bread buns we made – they where huge and delicious. We played with our snorkels in the pool. We also put our wetsuits on they where hard to take off. We helped mum and dad paint the fence. Our salad and veg that we planted are doing really well.
Hope everyone is safe and well take care love and miss you all
Daisy and Evie.”
Seth has had lots of outdoor time this week! He has done his usual reading and writing, but played lots too. Seth enjoyed writing his name with Lego. We have hunted for bugs and Pokemon, gone on walks but mainly had lots of water play! We made afternoon tea and ate in the garden too.
Hope everyone is safe and well!! ☀️?
What a week we’ve had celebrating Darcy’s 6th Birthday!! ? We had our own party in the garden with games, a piñata full of sweets ? and yummy yummy cake ?. Certainly a birthday to remember in lockdown!! ?
Darcy’s mastered skipping even better than before. Whizzing all over the place! ?
We gave Darcy a task this week to follow some instructions to make a ladybird house for the garden. She really enjoyed piecing it all together and working out which bit went where. Great fun to do!! ?
Take care and stay safe, love Darcy!!
This week both girls managed their right leg split, something they have been working hard to do since having time to stretch everyday. Elise made a video stretch routine which they put on the tv and follow together every day.
The trampoline has become a favourite reading spot.
Bella wrote a poem about a light house run by animals.
Elise cooked an entire meal completely by herself. She found the recipes online, wrote me a shopping list. Gathered all her equipment and spent most of the day in the kitchen. She made chorizo and sausage, sausage rolls, spiced wedges, cheesy garlic bread with homemade garlic butter, a side salad and le.om cheese cake to follow. All we did was take things in and out of the oven. It was as good as it looks!
The classroom was taken outside.
Dancing on our walks (standard household practice at the moment)
Elise is also teacher herself sign language through an online course. I cant figure out how to add a video of this but she has managed to send some messages out to some younger siblings of friends who use sign language.
And the ice cream man came!
Very exciting week.
Cerys and Euan have had another busy week ??????????????
*Paddling pool fun
*Digging in the garden
*Using the glue gun to make stick art work *Euan helped to put mum and dads new bed together
Victoria has had a lovely week again. We’ve had some lovely walks, she’s been loving Epic and we did the skittle experiment, did some more about Volcanoes and she chose a lovely short poem for her handwriting competition. She didn’t want to do anything else other than the poem 🙂 And she made a hand, sock puppet by herself!
Blake has been busy the last few weeks trying some of the challenges that have been set, working on his counting, phonics and lots more. We made some flags to stick in the window for V.E. day, he has made his own pet Komodo Dragon and has of course been enjoying the beautiful weather we have had.
Chloe has enjoyed making a city with her brother they added a playground and a skate park. We had a mini sports day with egg and spoon race and a sack race also lots of walking and bike riding.
Cole decided he wanted his stabilisers off his bike and it didn’t take him long to master it. 3 days later he wanted his bigger bike out and is now riding that one.
He’s also been building castles of of kinetic sand, loved coming to look at the plane at school.
Jacob enjoyed painting his ‘be happy’ jar, he wrote down that playing Monopoly with his family made him happy.
Owen has this week completed a lot of work. He’s continued to do his reading plus each day, as well as his maths factor that we signed him up for, so he’s well on his way to completing his 30 day challenge. He had great fun watching the animals at Chester Zoo and wrote a short piece about the tropical birds and the cheetahs. We’ve done science experiments and lots of art, as well as our weekly baking which this week was a homemade strawberry cheesecake – good job Joe Wicks is on hand with P. E lessons with all this baking we’re doing. He also took part in the Handwriting challenge competition this week.
“Hi everyone, Kiera here ?
It’s been a potato week!
Isaac put a business plan together to run a side branch of the family business!! He has been learning about set up loans, interest rates and customer research. He had to negotiate with the farmer directly, go and collect stock, then weigh out individual bags to sell. Research on others prices and advertising!
Then, another night he decided to cook us tea! Baked potatoes whilst getting veg patch clear!
He thinks he will finish his virtual ride to London too on Thursday!!
He is really starting to miss friends now . . . Hopefully won’t be much longer!! Xx
This week has seen Jess completing various tasks… helping me clean the kitchen, watering the plants (the photo shows the progress from planting the seeds ??), dusting and tidying her room and also making more of her delicious flapjack.
She has been doing Carol Vorderman’s maths every day, practising her times tables, reading and completing more work from her home learning pack.
We have been out on lots of dog walks and bike rides which is when we discovered Jess is fast outgrowing her bike! ?
Jess has also had fun with the marble run (how many marbles can go down it in one go?)! As well as doing an old favourite on ‘Just Dance’.
Happy half term everyone, stay safe xxx
Happy half-term everyone.
This week we have spent time in the kitchen carrying out experiments and baking.
Sam tested materials to discover whether they were soluble or insoluble. He also experimented with sugar and salt to see if they dissolved or became saturated.
Amy enjoyed the rain cloud in a jar experiment.
Sam made his favourite dessert; sticky toffee pudding, and Amy made sausage rolls.
Amy designed a menu this week and decided to create her own restaurant. She used PowerPoint to present it and emailed it to Mrs Barraclough. Amy was so happy to receive a reply from Mrs Barraclough as she misses her very much ❤️
Sam has enjoyed the artwork Mrs Welton set over the last couple of weeks – Willy Wonka attached!
Take care everyone.
Sending our love and best wishes,
Leanne, Dave, Sam and Amy xxxx
Maisie enjoyed dying paper to make. It look old fashion and writing a old fashion poem.
