Poetry

Posted on Thursday 23 April 2020 by Mrs Welsby

Hi all,

How did you get on with Monday’s poetry task? I had a go at recording myself reciting one of my favourite poems, Eletelephony by Laura Elizabeth Richard. It’s my first go at recording myself, so I’m quite proud of it, even if I do look a bit silly! Evie sent us a poem that she wrote, which is awesome. Have you any poems that you have recited and/or written? If so, send them in!

There once was a bear
Who was friends with a hare
He went to his house
But only found a mouse
He went to the lake
But only found a cake
He went to the shop
But only found a lollipop
He went to see the mayor
And there he found the hare          by Evie

Holiday fun!

What wonderful and inventive things have you been getting up to? We treated ourselves to a meal out – ok, so it was at a camping table on the drive, but it was still a different venue! Ellie has managed to create her very own jacuzzi, learn some British sign language and help her dad create their very own McDonald’s burgers. What a busy beaver!

A little quiz…

Posted on Tuesday 14 April 2020 by Mrs Rowley

Hi children,

We hope you’ve had a lovely Easter break. Isn’t the sunshine just fab?

Maddie enjoyed her first Easter egg hunt and has definitely got her love of chocolate from me.

Whilst you’re enjoying your break, why not have a go at this little quiz? Can you work out the titles of the 20 famous children’s books? I’ll post the answers tomorrow.

Enjoy!

Happy Easter!

Posted on Saturday 11 April 2020 by Mrs Welsby

So, how are the Easter holidays going? How are you getting on with the Easter challenge activities? What were you up to last week? What will you be doing this week? Helping with the cooking? Practising a sport? Completing a jigsaw ? I’m trying to do the  Joe Wicks workouts every day. Mrs Rowley is getting better at piano. Send us some pictures of all the fun things that you are doing – we love seeing what you’re up to! Here are some we’ve already received.

Hi children

How are you finding the Easter holidays? Have you completed any of the Easter home learning? The den building looks fab – I can’t wait till Maddie is older and we can build lots of dens!

We’ve spent lots of time in the garden playing in her sandpit, reading books, colouring in our picnic blanket and even playing in her water tray in the lovely sunshine!

We have loved receiving your emails about all the things you are doing at home – both learning and fun things! Have a look at Evie making pizzas and Ellie kickboxing with her dad. Please do keep sending us emails – its fab to see what you’ve been up to and you might even appear here on the website!

We hope you have a lovely Easter weekend.

Have you learnt something n

Posted on Friday 03 April 2020 by Mrs Rowley

Happy Friday – you’ve made it to the end of another week of home learning.

How have you found it? What have you found the hardest and which has been your favourite part?

We’ve loved receiving emails from your grownups and seeing all the things you’ve been doing.

Before we finished a few weeks ago, Miss Beatson gave the staff the challenge to learn something new. A long time ago, I started to learn the piano but I definitely haven’t practised in a long, long time!

So my challenge to myself is to learn to play the piano better – this was day one of me practising and this is day two – hopefully getting better! Now, it didn’t just take two videos to improve… there were lots of videos and lots of practise in between…

Don’t forget to email us with the things you have been doing and learning – we love receiving them.

Roman Mosaics

Posted on Thursday 02 April 2020 by Mrs Welsby

Hi children,

We looked at making our own Roman mosaics, but sadly didn’t get the opportunity to do so in school. So Mrs Cairnes and her son decided to make some of their own at home. Has anyone else had a go at creating a mosaic?
