Hi Foxes, cool

 

Hope you have had a good week. Thank you to those of you who sent in your poems. They are absolutely brilliant. I really loved April’s poem where she described her clothes escaping from her wardrobe.

 

It is the Easter holidays now so I won’t be sending any work but you do have the challenges that will keep you busy. Some of you may have completed a few of them already. Don’t forget to try the diary too.

 

I’d love it if you could let me know about the things get up to over the break. I have been doing some DIY in my new kitchen. I have put up coat hooks, pictures and painted new doors! My next job is to upcycle a mirror. I’ll let you know how it goes.

 

 

I’ll catch up with you over the holiday. Stay safe and keep smiling. smiley

 

Take care,

Hi Foxes,smiley

How are you all doing?
It’s Mrs Rickards here saying hello and that I miss you all so much.

 

I have loved seeing all your photos and examples of work and hearing how hard you are working at home. I was very impressed to see that someone has gone ahead and made their slippers. (Have a look on our DT page above for some feedback!) Remember we said that you no longer have to include sewing as part of the project so if you are happy to make your slippers over the Easter holiday please do, but make sure you send in a photo so I know who has competed them!

 

I also loved seeing some Easter cards from this week’s art. If any of you have made a card please send in a photo as soon as you can. Have a look at the Art page above to see our Gallery so far! Good luck with the Easter Challenge that has come home today, it’s full of brilliant ideas to try and enjoy your time at home. Let us know how you get on.

 

Look after each other and remember our golden rule, treat others as you would like to be treatedyesheart

Much love Mrs Rickards.

Hello Foxes,

 

Hope you all had a great weekend. Has anyone started a diary yet? I spent Saturday washing my car and then guess what happened… we had rain, sleet and hail! My car is now dirty again.

How are your poems going? I am really looking forward to reading them. Remember to send them into the office for me to read. I wonder how many we can get onto the website!

 

Has anyone tried anything they have never tried before? Let me know about it, please. It would be great to know what new skills people have learnt.

 

Take care and I will be in touch soon.

 

Miss Clark

 Well done to those peple who have completed their poems. I love them!

Look who has attempted the 'Toilet Roll' challenge. You have competition, Mrs Harris!

Don't forget to take time to relax.

You could use an App like Chill Panda.  yes

 

 

Look who's working well at home!

Hi Everyone,

 

Hope you have had a good first week. It has been great to hear how well some of you are getting on. I have been busy too doing my homework too; planning for your next lot of lessons and carrying out research for some fun activities for you to do at home. So look out for these after the Easter holidays.

 

I would also love to see some more letters as the ones I have see have been great. 

 

The other morning, I was looking in my garden and I saw a fox curled up in the grass. The fox then walked up to my back door and stared in even with me standing there. It then looked at me and walked away! That has never happened to me before. If anything like that happens to you, why not write it down? Mrs Payne is going to keep a diary whilst she is at home. You could do the same thing and we could then create a book out of all your experiences. It could become a historical document; primary evidence!

 

Have a great weekend and stay safe and I will catch up with you all next week!

 

Miss Clark

This is Alfie's letter.

 

Dear people of the world,

 

Just before New Year’s Eve 2019 a few people had a virus in China called coronavirus (covid19). The virus has spread across the world causing 433,000 people to have it, so we need to social distance. In case you are unaware how to, you just need to keep away from people and stay indoors or in your garden. If you are wondering why we need to social distance read this to find out why.

 

My first reason is so that we can protect the elderly and people with medical problems such as diabetes, lung problems and asthma. We need to protect them because it is a horrible illness for them and their families to go through. In addition, these people are the most vulnerable of people to get it.

 

My second reason is so that we can save the NHS beds by social distancing. If we don’t social distance too many people will have it at the same time meaning there will not be enough staff, beds or equipment to deal with everyone. Therefore, we need to go on lock down!

I hope this letter has convinced you to social distance.

 

Yours sincerely,

 Alfie Peall

I really like the topic of Alfie's persuasive letter...

He is persuading people to stay at home!

Really relevent.

 

Take care everyone!

Hi Foxes,

 

I hope you are all ok and enjoying the activities we have planned for you. Don’t forget it will soon be Easter so don’t eat too much chocolate! You know I won’t…

 

Has anyone played on Times Table Rockstar yet? I bet one of Foxes could break a record. A point on your grid for you if you do!!!

 

Let your mum or dad know that they can give you points as well. You could get them for how brilliantly you do your lessons.

 

If you think you have completed some good work, please take a photo and send it to me via the office email, and I will put it on the website so everyone can see. I certainly can’t wait to see what you have done.

 

Here is a little challenge for you… who can build the tallest tower using just newspaper and tape? Send me a picture of it and say how tall it is.

 

Catch up with you all soon,

 

Miss Clark

Welcome Back.

 

Welcome back to all the new Year 5 and 6. We hope you have had a really great summer! We are looking forward to an exciting term ahead and have been busy planning activities that we hope will inspire the children.

 

We know this is going to be a year of lots of hard work, especially for Year 6, but, I am sure that the children will be prepared to do their very best. It is important that together we encourage them to approach everything they do with a positive attitude.

 

There are lots of fun things planned for this term. Year 6 will be going on their residential trip in October and we also have Book Week with lots of very exciting visitors and activities in school. Don’t forget to look out for The Big Read on the last Thursday of Term.

Year 5 pupils stayed in tents for a night on the school field. They cooked dinner, played games and had a campfire. In the morning they got up really early and made breakfast before going home. Everyone had a great time.

Hi All Year 6 (and parents)

 

I have looked at the weather forecast for our trip to PGL - Windmill HIll - and it looks grey, wet and chilly. Please ensure that you bring a waterproof coat and layers to keep you warm, 2 pairs of trainers, toiletries, clean underwear and a dustbin bag for wet items. Remember to bring a sparkly outfit for the disco.

 

PARENTS - please show your child what you have packed for them - we have had instances where children do not know what to re pack when we are leaving - as they do not know what belongs to them. If in doubt please label their belongings - We cannot be responsible for lost items. 

 

Finally - please ensure that the school has an up to date phone number so that we can contact you should we need to.

Today you were given your Times Tables Rock star username and Login, go to the site (link below)
