17 July 2020: Home learning

Thursday 16 July 2020

Good morning children. It’s Friday. It’s the last day of the summer term! Sadly, the year hasn’t ended in the way in which we would have loved. We’ve missed out on our usual treats and fun. Mrs Welsby and I are missing it as much as you but we will make up for it when we see you in September.


School Trip

A fun school trip just because! Today, head to Walt Disney World. Have fun looking around. Find your favourite ride or attraction and write a review. Why should someone go and visit it? What was the best bit? How could it be improved?



You all know how much I love a good musical – this one was my favourite as a child and I used to watch it nearly every day on repeat!

Sing along with this song. Read the words as you go.

So long, farewell (from the Sound of Music)

There’s a sad sort of clanging
From the clock in the hall
And the bells in the steeple, too
And up in the nursery

An absurd little bird
Is popping out to say coo-coo
(Coo-coo, coo-coo)

coo-coo Regretfully they tell us
coo-coo But firmly they compel us
coo-coo To say goodbye
To you

So long, farewell
Auf wiedersehen, goodnight
I hate to go and leave this pretty sight
So long, farewell
auf Wiedersehen, adieu
Adieu, adieu
To you and you and you
So long, farewell
Au revoir, auf Wiedersehen
I’d like to stay
And taste my first champagne

So long, farewell
Auf Wiedersehen, goodbye
I leave and heave
A sigh and say goodbye
I’m glad to go
I cannot tell a lie
I flit, I float
I fleetly flee, I fly
The sun has gone
To bed and so must I
So long, farewell
auf Wiedersehen, goodbye


Now, write a list of any words that are new to you. Can you find out what they mean?
