I hope that you are all well and have enjoyed your weekend so far. This coming week is our virtual ‘Sports Week’ where you have different activities to try and complete each day! I know how much you look forward to Sports Day so enjoy your activities this week if you are able to do them! Let me know how you get on.
With the weather being a bit up and down this weekend Riko was getting quite tired and as you can see is having a ‘lazy day’! He wishes you luck with your sporting activities!
Zac has shared this great photo of him making electricity boards. This looks like lots of fun and a great way to learn about circuits! Well done Zac!
It’s great to see and hear people getting on well at home and learning new things in different ways. I know that some of you have been helping with cooking or baking at home – what great new skills you will learn by doing this!
I hope you have all had a lovely weekend so far. This coming week another home learning pack will be ready for you to begin! I hope that you continue to find the motivation to carry on learning. Although it’s not the same as being at school, learning at home could provide you with lots of new opportunities!
Riko has been very busy this week. He has been missing the classroom but has learned a lot about growing plants…
Kieran has been out for a walk this week and I wanted to share what he has done: “On one of our nature walks he was upset to see the disregard for local wildlife. He decided on our next walk to collect the litter and throw it away.” Well done Kieran for taking the initiative to look after the environment, especially considering we are an Eco-School!
I want to also thank those of you who have wanted to email your twisted tales from this week’s English home learning. It has been lovely reading them or getting to hear what your stories were about! Such super imaginations and I am happy you are continuing to practise your writing skills.
Just remember to keep trying your best and that when you face a problem to not say ‘I can’t’ but ‘I can’t do it YET!’
I hope that you are well and have been able to enjoy the lovely sunshine!
I thought that I would share with you that my first courgettes have grown! I was so excited to see them coming through and cannot wait for them to be big enough to cook. I will have to post a picture of them when they are ready!
I hope that you are finding some positives out of lockdown, it could even be growing your own food or learning a new skill. I would love to hear. Perhaps you could challenge yourself to try something new this week?
I hope that you are all okay and keeping positive. If there are times that you are perhaps feeling frustrated or upset, try and talk to someone about it. Bottling our feelings in doesn’t support our well being and talking things through can sometimes help us feel better.
I have been sent some more Viking Longboats and they look super! I can see that people are taking their time and care making these and should be proud of the result. Well done!
Chloe has also sent in a fantastic Roman Numeral poster which explains what they are and how they work! She has even been able to put in her birth date – Super effort and poster Chloe!
I know the weather is not looking too fabulous but I have faith you will find something fun to do inside!
I look forward to seeing what you are all up to next!
I hope I am finding you all well. Last week I was back in school with the key worker’s children and it has been lovely seeing some familiar faces. I am still missing seeing you all in Beech class but glad you are all keeping safe.
From tomorrow you will be hopefully starting the next home learning pack and even though I am at school full time, I would still love to see all of the things you are getting up to. Well done to you all for continuing to do your best and to everyone at home supporting you.
Toby has shared this excellent image! He has discovered Foot-golf which seems like a great way to have fun and keep up with exercise! Below you can see him taking his shot – it looks like it was a good one from the concentration on his face!
I hope to hear from you soon. Keep up the work, you are doing so well!
I am sorry that it has been a while since I have blogged – I have been busy recently preparing for school now that I am back in full time with key worker’s children groups!
I hope you are all well and had as lovely a ‘half term’ as you could last week. During that week some of you were busy completing your Viking Longboats and I must say that they look fantastic! Lots of careful thought and hard work have clearly gone into making these and you should all be proud of what you have made – well done!
I would also like to share that Zuri has completed the Book Challenge that was set earlier on in the year. This required you to try and read a range of books and review them at the end. Well done Zuri, this is a fantastic example of resilience and must have opened your eyes to a variety of stories!
This week hopefully you have started your home learning again and feel motivated to keep going. You are all superstars so I hope you believe in yourselves to keep going with it and try your best – that’s what matters most!
Enjoy the sunshine while it lasts – it looks like it might rain this week but I am sure you will find creative things to do during your free time.
Good afternoon Beech Class! I hope you are all well and keeping safe, especially in this lovely weather. This week continues to look sunny so please remember your sun cream and hats if you are spending lots of time outside!
Over the weekend I finished the dinosaur toy I was crocheting although I think it may looks more like a dragon…
I also found my old paddling pool to dip my feet into when it gets too hot. My family think I am going slightly mad however with the addition of Winston the Flamingo floating on top! Riko has certainly been enjoying it!
Kieran has shared some exciting things he has been doing at home. When completing the Maths home learning last week, Kieran explained that he used a lot of resilience which is excellent to hear! It’s always a great feeling when you have achieved something that you found tricky at first. It was also his birthday last week and he was given a treasure hunt to find one of his presents which sounds very exciting! Finally, he has been helping his Mum to complete a 1000 piece Disney puzzle! Wow, this is super Kieran!!
Anything you wish to share as well this week continue to send things over. It’s great to see you are all doing well.
Once again we have had a lovely sunny day and I hope you were able to enjoy it in some way. Make sure to stay safe in the sunshine as well though!
Yesterday it was lovely to hear from some of you and catch up with parents about how you are getting on at home. I am still so impressed with you getting on so well with home learning so keep it up!
I thought I would share with you my next crochet ‘adventure’. I am making a dinosaur toy for another member of my family and have to say it has been more successful so far compared to my blankets. The first 2 blankets I crocheted did NOT go well but I feel I was resilient and the third went much better and I am happy with the result!
I wonder if any of you have been resilient in anything recently? You could even leave a comment below!
I hope you are all keeping well and have a chance to enjoy this lovely sunshine we have today and tomorrow. I know someone who is already taking this opportunity to enjoy the weather…
A class update:
Chloe H has been getting creative making a Viking poster that displays her name written in Viking letters. It looks fantastic, especially with the stained paper to make it look old!! Well done Chloe!
Joseph has been busy completing some creative writing that he would like to share with you all. He has used lots of our amazing writing features like expanded noun phrases, fronted adverbials and a range of punctuation. I am glad to see you haven’t forgotten things we have learned in class in this excellent piece of writing Joseph!
And finally I would like to share with you a new hairstyle from Jacob D! It’s amazing! I wonder how long it will be by the time we get back to school? Thank you for sending this through Jacob!
Another week is flying by and I have received lots of emails about what people have been up to! I was in school again yesterday with Key Worker Children and we created comic strips, made geometrical city scenes and completed a scavenger hunt outside! Maybe these are things you could do in your spare time?
Rufus has been very active over the last week. For VE day you can see below Rufus was able to celebrate with different types of cakes (yum), enjoying the sun with family and even wearing some medals. It must have been a lovely day for you! He has also put a lot of effort into writing his own story titled ‘Bob the Lizard’. Rufus even went on to edit his story 4 times before he was happy with it, what an excellent amount of effort Rufus! If you wish to hear Rufus’ story, follow this link to hear him read it (it’s very good): https://youtu.be/O5GnOklezfM
Tarah has been getting on with home learning this week. As you can see below she has worked hard to create this fact file about her made up animal! She has even gone as far to create the animal through images – well done! Tarah has considered lots of different aspects of this animal which make it unique and it sounds very interesting!
Jack has also been getting on with home learning. He has taken on the task of creating a Viking wanted poster and I love some of the details he has included – especially the ‘Danger Meter’! He also has completed the sound map activity in a very peaceful-looking setting. Jack was even lucky enough to hear a ‘cuckoo’! Super work Jack.
Zuri has been very busy as well. She has been continuing her home learning and has also been challenged with some excellent DT projects. Below you can see that she has carefully followed instructions to create a marble run and music box made from timber! She has also taken up sewing as a new skill and the result looks amazing! Furthermore, she has been making dens, experimenting through making crystals and baking banana bread! What great skills you must be acquiring, well done!
Wow! Well done to you all and it looks like you’re having a good time.
Once again, keep safe and look after yourselves, Miss Leete
