Hi everyone,

This week has been another busy week for us as we have been getting everything ready for the children who are coming back into school for the week. We are all really looking forward to seeing those of you who are coming in and have lots of activities planned around our theme "The Titanic." When you come into school, please follow the one way system and line up using the yellow lines, by the cone with your teacher's name on. The groups are listed below.

For those children not coming into school, the activities will be put on the website as usual and there will be a pack to be collected with your children's work from the year, some work for the next week and your child's report in.

Take care and stay safe

Hi everyone, 

This week, Mrs Marsden and I have been in class with some of the year 3 children who have come to school. We had a lovely week, did some super work and thankfully, as the sun was shining, got to spend time outside doing some nature work too.  On my days off, I have been working with Oliver at home and managed to get him in the garden making an orienteering map and quiz for his Dad.

There will be some more work on the website for next week and I am looking forward to seeing the children that are coming into school the week after. I will be busy planning things for us to do over the next week. Don't forget to keep practicing your reading on Bug club and multiplication facts on TT Rockstars too.

Take care and stay safe

Hi everyone, 

It has been another busy week. Last Friday I was working with our key worker children with Mrs Greene and I had a lovely day. It was nice to spend some time working with children again. We read a great super hero story and designed out own superheroes, we made our own mini super hero Imovie, We also did some sewing. My son, Oliver came with me and he had a super day too. This week, Oliver has started back at his own school for the days I am working in school. He had his first day on Wednesday and was a little bit nervous but enjoyed it so much when he got there.  Mrs Exley has been in school this week and has been working with some of the year 6's. Next week, I will be working with some of the year 3 class that are coming in to school.and am looking forward to seeing them. 

Take care and stay safe

Hi everyone, 

Another week has passed and we have been very busy as more children have been coming into school. This week, we have had nursery and reception children in school and it has been lovely to see them all. Many of you have collected your new learning pack from school so you have lots of work to keep you busy now the weather is not as nice. We will be putting the work on the website as well, with extra science, french and topic areas but if you have not collected it, please ring school to organise a time. 

This week in our house, we have been looking at life cycles and have been using  a protractor to draw and find angles. Oliver has been using stop motion animation to make a talking, expressive face for a Taskmaster task with his Dad. He also made some 3D mini beasts.  This week I haven't received any work or photos so it would be lovely to hear about what you have been up to.

Take care and stay safe

Hi, 

I hope you all enjoyed your half term holiday? The weather was lovely and after talking to you and your families on Thursday, many of you had lots of fun outside on trampolines and paddling pools. Unfortunately, the weather has got worse and its back to school work. We have been doing maths and literacy work this week but Oliver had some time for a science experiment  with his Dad too!

This week, there are more activities on the website for you to do. There are packs for you to pick up from school which have more work for the next three weeks. These include maths and literacy work and have a guide in which order to do them. These can be picked up on Wednesday 10th June between 1.30 and 2 O clock. All work will be put on the websites with any videos that might be helpful. There will also be extra science, topic and french work put on the website.

 

Take care and stay safe.

Hi, 

I hope you have all had a good week and have done lots of learning. Next week is the half term holidays so there won't be any new work on the website this week but if you are feeling bored, there is always TT rockstars or Bug club to go on and spellings to learn. I am sure there is also lots of activities on the school website or on the BBC Bitesite website to do.  

This week, the sun has been shining and so we have spent some time outside. We set up our own mini Olympic games, which I lost! Oliver did an act of kindness and washed my car. He did have some help from his Dad and he enjoyed using the jet spray just a little too much! Let's see if you can do an act of kindness for someone this week? He also designed his own science experiment to see which of his parachutes took the longest to fall and did all the planning on his own while I was in school. He did have a little help with doing the experiment. 

Have a good  holiday 

Take care and stay safe.

HI,

I hope you are all doing well? There is only one week left until half term! This half term seems to have gone very quickly! It was nice to hear what you have all been up to over the last few weeks and it was super to hear about some of the fantastic learning you have all been doing. You all seem to be enjoying reading your book and are trying your best with the learning packs so well done. Don’t forget there is always TT Rockstars and Bug club to go on too. I am still putting extra activities for science and topic ideas on the website so don’t forget to have a look.

This week, Oliver and I have been busy learning about angles and we have been looking at food; we wrote food poems, created our own 3 course meal and looked at how much sugar was in his favourite foods. He has also been creating his own video advert for his new invention the Waspinator 4000! We have also been planting sunflowers as he is going to have a competition with his granddad as to who can grow the biggest one!

Have another good week practicing time and learning more about the rainforest. Maybe you could write a quiz for me, Mrs Exley and Mrs Marsden?

Take care and stay safe.

Hi everyone,

I hope every one is doing ok and has enjoyed getting and reading their new book? it would be lovely to see some of the work you have done about it. Next week, you have maths and literacy from your packs to do but I will put some other activities for you to do if you want to do more.

We have been very busy this week. We have been practicing maths and literacy in the morning but because it has been such beautiful weather, we have been out side doing lots of different activities. Oliver has made a bug hotel for insects with his Dad and we did some nature art, which was inspired by the artist Andy Goldsworthy. Maybe you could have a go doing this this week if the weather is nice? On Thursday, we learnt about what VE day was and made some bunting to put for Friday.

I hope you all have a nice long weekend and maybe celebrate VE day with your family.

Take care and stay safe

Hi everyone,

It is our second week back after Easter and lots of you seem to be doing really well with your home learning. Thank you for all those who have sent work, photos or E mails telling me what you have been up and keep up the super work.  I am going to try to make Jorille’s yummy cake next week and I will put her recipe on the children’s work page if you want to have a go too. Gracie’s meatballs look delicious too!

 Me and Oliver are still working out with Joe in the morning and I am definitely getting fitter. We have been doing lots of maths and literacy in the morning but have been doing fun tasks in the afternoon. We had a look at the Oak National Academy website this week and have been doing some of the foundation lessons on line. We did a year 5 art session and found out about texture and did a year 4 music lesson about pulse.

Next week is our book week and you should have received your next activity pack and book in the post. Please let us know if you haven’t received it. There are lots of activities to do based on your book and I will put some other activities on the website. On Friday, it is VE day so there are some activities linked to this too.

 

Take care, keep learning and have fun

Hi everyone,

We hope you have had a nice Easter and managed to eat some Easter eggs. The weather was sunny so at least we could get outside in the garden! Unfortunately, the holidays are now over so it’s back to school work in our house. We have still been working out with Joe in the morning and then practicing our maths and literacy work. We have been doing some DIY this week and me and Oliver have been learning how to use tools such as a screwdriver, drill and saw! We try to get out for a walk everyday, especially as the sun is still shining!

Myself and Mrs Marsden were in school on Thursday and it was lovely to speak to your family and especially lovely to speak to some of you and find out about all the super things and learning you have been doing! Keep it up everybody! While we were in school, we sorted out some learning packs for you and sent you a new book that you can read. These should arrive next week sometime and please start to read your book. The activities for book are for week beginning 4th May and the pack for the two weeks afterwards. I will put the activities on the website too with a few ideas for other curriculum areas too.

Well done to those practicing their skills this week on TT rockstars and Bug club. I keep a note of those who are practicing regularly and get certificates for when we are back at school.

Take care and stay safe.

Hi everyone,

Mrs Marsden, Mrs Exley and myself all hope you have had a good Easter and all managed to eat an Easter egg or two! It would be wonderful if you could share what you have been doing with us and we could put it on the website to share with your friends.

Over the holidays, we have all been very busy. In my house, we have been up at 9 O clock most mornings doing our morning exercises with Joe Wicks. We even got dressed up one Friday! We have all been going for a walk once a day to get some exercise and have been playing in the garden in the sunshine. We have baked Easter cakes and decorated hard boiled eggs. Can you guess who they are meant to be? We had a day doing DIY in the garden and we made a marble run too. We got a new game for our switch for Easter and have been playing Mario and Sonic at the Olympics as a family too. I am not very good at it!

Mrs Marsden has been making Easter cards and hunting for Easter eggs, as well as making Easter buns with Freddie and has eaten far too many chocolate eggs! They have been enjoying the sunshine too by playing in the paddling pool. They have been reading books about dragons and dinosaurs and Freddie’s favourite is Zog by Julia Donaldson. He has been practicing roaring and breathing fire like Zog!

Mrs Exley has been baking cakes with her daughters, Caitlin and Nicole, over Easter and enjoyed an Eater egg hunt too! She has also spent time in the sunshine reading and hopes you are all keeping up your reading and filling in your reading diaries!

There will be more online learning this week for you to do in the different subject folders. We are moving on to our new topic (Extreme Environments) and will start by looking at the Amazon rainforest so have a look in the folders for these activities. It would be great if we could have a piece of work, photo or some news about what every child has done this week. There are also lots of the online sites to complete work on (bug club and TT Rockstars etc) and I e mailed you all the password to classroom secrets kids in the holidays. I am continuing to put weekly spellings in the literacy folders so please try to keep learning these. Any problems, please get in touch by e mail which is on the bottom of the year 4 homework page.

 

Take care and stay safe.

Hi everyone,

 

I hope you have had another fun and productive week. Thank you to those children who have sent some photos or work that they have been doing at home as myself, Mrs Marsden and Mrs Exley love to see what you have been up to. Many of the other staff love to look at the photos as well to see what you have been doing – I know Mrs Kaye is one person who has had a peek! Please could you all ty to send something you have been doing for next week, it doesn’t have to be a piece of work set but just something you have done.

 

My family have been busy this week. We have joined in with Joe Wicks every day this week, although some days I have been more active than others! We have baked cakes and Oliver has been having fun doing the Lego challenge! We have also been joining in with the Taskmaster home challenges. We have been practicing our spellings and reading everyday (we are reading Sea Quest books at the moment) and practicing our maths on TT rockstars, daily 10 and the Whiterose maths site. We have also been following the Young Voices page on facebook, which have activities to join in with. I have also booked our school a space at Young Voices for next January for those that would like to join in and I am really looking forward to that!

 

Mrs Exley has been having a busy couple of weeks too. It was Caitlin’s (her daughter) birthday so they all went in the hot tub to celebrate. She has also been busy walking Milly the dog. Mrs Marsden has also been getting creative as her and Freddie have been painting rainbows and putting them up in the window. They have been making models out of playdough and Freddie has made a snake, a worm and a car so far!

 

I have been looking at who has been on Bug Club over the last two weeks and I would like to say well done to the 12 children who have been on. Could we all try to have a go reading a book on Bug Club sometime over the next week? If you are unsure of your password, just email and I will send a reminder.  Maybe you could take a picture of yourself reading and we could put it on the website?

Next week it is the Easter holidays so I think you all deserve a break. There won’t be formal activities but some Easter themed things to do. If you want to do more, there are lots of on line activities and links to websites. As a class, let’s have an Easter Egg competition – who can design and decorate the best boiled Easter egg. Could you think of a theme? Please send in some photos.

 

 

Take care and have fun.

Hi everyone,

We hope you have had a good first week at home? We have put lots of activities for you to do on the website. Please don’t feel you have to do them all! There are a mixture of things so that you can choose. Please do try to read every week day, either a home book, reading comprehension or on bug club – its nice to see a few of you have already been on! Also, keep practicing your times tables and mental maths skills on TT rockstars, Numbots or daily 10.  Another good activity is to practice telling the time in analogue and digital time. Don’t forget to practice your weekly spellings- get your parents to test you and let me know how you do!

 

There are lots of challenges and internet classes available on line too. We have had lots of fun doing the 30 day Lego challenge and PE with Joe Wicks every morning too. I will put a list of some of these on the website for you. Have a go at the Easter bonnet challenge and share your all creations!

 

Finally, if you have any problems, do not hesitate to contact myself or Mrs Marsden by E mail. Also if you want to share any work or challenges you have done, please e mail them in to me and I will put them on the website for the other children to see! I might even add a few of our own below!
