This week marked the start of some normality returning to our lives; we returned to school albeit with some changes from before. The children have been exceptionally mature and followed the new routine well. I am really impressed with the start they have made. Those children who are still working from home have produced some lovely writing and continued to work really hard.
This week we started to write a story using a picture as a stimulus. The children had remembered lots of techniques and strategies to use in their writing and it was lovely to see them develop their ideas further throughout the week. We have not quite finished these yet and I will hopefully share some next week.
Here is the image we used:
The Magic Tree
This week the children have continued using the White Rose resources to support their mathematics work. Both the home school and maths tasks in class were completed to a high standard and the children felt much more confident with this skill.
We have watched an online assembly from the NSPCC giving children some advice on how to deal with their worries during this difficult time. Here is the link if you would like to watch it again as a family.
The children have engaged in many other tasks whilst at school this week including Art, Music, Farming, PE and PSHE. They have worked really hard and I am looking forward to continuing with the hard work next week.

Some incredible work has been produced this week and yet again, I am very proud of the children.
Art/ Nature art
The children were asked to use the world around them to create a piece of art. There are some fabulous designs and they have clearly used lots of imagination and skill.
The winner of the art competition is Laura -well done!
Here is Laura’s masterpiece. Well done.
In your packs I sent home some sunflower seeds for you to plant. Lots of the children did this and I asked for an update this week. There are lots of little green seedlings sprouting and we are going to have to wait a little longer until we see who will have the tallest sunflower!
Cooking and Baking
This week the children were set a baking/cooking competition. We have had some fabulous entries and lots of children have been working hard. Here are the entries.
It was exceptionally difficult to pick the winners but here we are! Well done to Lucas with his amazing cake and Max D with his onion tart with wild rocket and goats cheese. Amazing work from everyone and I hope you enjoyed eating them!
This week the children have been on a virtual bike ride and perfected their jumping skills!
Last but not least the children have created some fabulous window art in the theme of monsters and aliens. These look beautiful in the window!
What an amazing end to this half term. A huge well done to everyone and I hope you enjoy the half term break. I have decided not to set you any home learning this week so that you can enjoy time with your families in the beautiful weather we are set to have. Don’t forget we are going to have a Google Meet on Monday if you are able to attend. It is bring your pet to school day but don’t worry if you haven’t got a pet!
Some of you will be returning to school on June 1st and I am very much looking forward to seeing you. If you are not returning to school, keep up the amazing effort online and I will see you soon.
Take care and keep smiling,

The children have had another fabulous week of online learning and have produced some excellent art work, lots of good mathematics, geography and PE. A huge well done and keep up the good work.
Draw with Rob
The children have loved taking part in this activity during the home school learning and always ask for it to be set during Google Meet sessions. This week I sent the children the link to all of Rob’s videos from the past weeks and they picked their favourite to draw. Here are the results.
I know that the children have been eager to find out the winner of the recent photography challenge. It was so difficult to pick as you all submitted fabulous entries but in the end I had to pick!
1st – Sahil
2nd – George W
3rd – Svana
You will all receive a small prize as soon as possible!
Well done to everyone who took part. Here are the entries for you all to have a look at.
Don’t forget we are going to have a class Google Meet on Monday to take a ‘class photo’. Please try to join and make sure you have done your hair!
Well done everyone and have a fabulous weekend.
