Decorate an Egg Competition

Well done to everyone who took part in the egg competition. All entries were well designed and showed imagination and some lovely creativity. It was extrememly difficult to choose a winner but well done to Owen whose design based on Fining Nemo won for our class. Scroll through the pictures below to see all the entries.

On Line Home Learning

This Spring Term is certainly different with the first part of it being completed through our online learning. The class have completed lots of different activities whilst at home.

In a morning we have had 2 live English and Maths lessons via Google Meet. English has involved studying various types of grammar and learning different spellings. We have spent time studying the first chapter of The Iron Man by Ted Hughes and looking at different types of poetry. In Maths we have looked at area, perimeter, multiplication, angles and the properties of 2D shapes. Each week on a Friday, Julia has led a SEAL lesson too.

Our afternoons have involved meeting toglether at 1pm and working with Mr Hulme for music and also following a variety of Oak Academy lessons on Earthquakes and Volcanos in Geography, The Ancient Greeks in History and Electricity in Science. We have done some meditation sessions and Mrs Dalton has set an art activity each Friday for the children to complete and then share with the class at the end of the day. At 2.30pm during the rest of the week we have been reading The BFG by Roald Dahl.

poetry

During some of our online lessons we have been writing our own poems. Below are 2 acrostic poems written by members of our class.

Lockdown

An Acrostic Poem about Lockdown written by Jack H.

Lockdown

Looking after ourselves

Only essential shopping

Coronavirus causing chaos

Keep 2m apart at all times

Don’t know when it’s going to go

Oh yes we have a vaccine

Willing us to keep positive

Never give up hope

Back to school

An Acrostic Poem about going back to school by Brooke M.

Back to  School

Best friends playing on the yard.                                                                             Amazing laughter in the pen.                                                                                  Caring teachers watching as we play with our friends.                                        Kind Mr Worral waitiing and greeting us at the gate.

Teaching children great and fun work.                                                                  Offering good support to those who need it.

Spending time with friends again.                                                                          Children having fun during Golden Time.                                                              Having yummy lunch together.                                                                               Over all the noise teachers trying to talk.                                                              Over your head, watch out for footballs!                                                            Loving out friends as we laugh our way through school.

Homework

PE

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday and will take place outdoors. Due to the weather children are encouraged to wear leggins, jogging bottoms, tracksuits for PE and to have their kit with them everyday so that we can try and choose our PE slot according to the better weather.

Music

This year we are fortunate to be able to have guitar tuition for the whole class. These lessons will be on a Monday afternoon. If your child has a guitar it would be great if they could bring it to school on a Monday to use in the lesson. If not we do have guitars in school for the children to use and hopefully they will be able to bring one home to practise on in a few weeks time.
