Mrs Stock’s Indoor Adventures with Hugsy

Dear KS1,

I hope you are all well and have been enjoying doing all the activities that we have been putting on the blog. I have spent some time in school this week looking after the children whose parents need to go to work. I have really enjoyed receiving some of the pictures and work you have been doing at home, so please carry on sending me things that I can blog on a Friday.

Today, Hugsy (my penguin pal) and I enjoyed playing a popular board game together. We took turns and followed the rules of the game. Have you got any board games you can play? Maybe you could be creative and make up your own board game. You could design your own board and your own rules!

Keep checking the blog for more updates from me and Hugsy!

Celebration of Home Learning

This week, children from KS1 have been sharing their home learning with us. Emma and Hannah from Year 2 have been learning about 3D shapes and Leo made a shadow puppet show as well as painting a beautiful mackerel. In Year 1, Dua Fatima has been practising her spelling and has also written a fantastic non-chronological report about penguins! Luca researched all about endangered animals on the WWF website and his non-chronological report was about the mountain gorillas.

Well done to you all and please send us more work to celebrate by emailing Mrs Stock.

Miss Baird’s Update

Hello Tiger Moths!

How are you all? I hope you all have had a fantastic week and are enjoying all the activities you are doing at home.

This week, I have been to school to look after children whose adults needed to go to work. I have also been busy making some cornflake cakes. They were yummy! Maybe you could make something exciting at home too. I’d love to see or hear about what you’ve been doing. This week I have also been out running and in my garden every day to try and stay active. It has been such lovely weather, I hope you have been able to enjoy the sunshine too.

This week Cuddles has been very excited and was pretending to be the teacher! He has been having great fun but made sure he was doing his learning too.

I hope you are all looking after yourselves and your families. Missing you all lots.

I’ll update you all again next Friday. Take care.

Miss Baird 🙂

Miss Webb’s Update

Hello Butterfly Class!

How are you all? I hope you’ve had a fantastic week and have been busy at home with all the great activities we have suggested (and any more you have chosen to do!). It has been strange not seeing you everyday and I am missing you all lots!

This week, I have been to school to look after the children whose adults have needed to go to work. It was different not being with all of Butterfly class but I know how important it is for us to keep ourselves safe and stay at home as much as we can. I have also done some of the enrichment activities like doing some yoga everyday. Have you done any yoga? I have also been going for a run each day to keep my body active. It has been lovely to get outside in the sunshine for a little while.

Miss Derrick has also inspired me to buy a new keyboard so I have been learning how to play! It’s been so much fun learning a new skill but a little bit tricky so I have made sure I have been persevering!

I hope you are all looking after yourselves, making lots of good choices with your adults at home (just like the wonderful ones you make at school) and staying safe being such fabulous superheroes!

I’ll update you again next Friday on my week,

Miss Webb 🙂

Miss Derrick’s update

Hello Dragonfly Class!

How are you all? Hope you’re enjoying all this extra time you’re getting to spend at home with your families. I hope you are enjoying the activties we have suggested you could do at home. I’m sure you’ve been up to other things too!

It’s been a strange week not seeing you all every day. I have been in school one day to look after some children who’s families have to go to work still because they do very important jobs, like doctors, nurses and people who work in the supermarkets. I have been working with all the other Year Two teachers to think of some other fun activities you can get up to next week. Remember I told you all I was learning the keyboard too? Well I have a lot more time to practise that and I’m getting better every day. I can’t wait to show you all when we see each other next! I think Miss Webb is starting to learn too! I’ve also been getting outside in my garden every day to try and stay active, and doing Joe Wick’s PE lesson every morning. I hope you have all had some time in the beautiful sunshine this week.

I hope you are all safe and healthy at home and looking after yourselves and your families. I’m sure you’re all making super choices, just like you would if you were at school. Miss you all lots!

I’ll update you all again next Friday. Take care.

Miss Derrick 🙂

Mrs Baranowicz’s Update

Hi Glow Worms! Just wanted to start by saying how much I miss you all.

I know that for a lot of you it was a very abrupt end to school and it is uncertain when we will all be together again but I am definitely thinking about you every day and look forward to seeing you again.

This new way of living has given me plenty of opportunities to reflect and indulge in hobbies that I usually wouldn’t have time to do. I would love to see what you have all been getting up to, maybe you’ve taken this time to learn a new skill or refine a talent.

I am quite sad that I left Max behind and he is now locked in the classroom but I’m sure he is finding plenty of things to do in there (guess I’ll find out what he got up to when we’re back)

I hope you and your families are all staying safe and you are being good to your parents!

I will be back next Friday with a new weekly update.

Best Wishes from Mrs Baranowicz
