Otters

We will be using this page to keep in touch with each other.  I am going to miss seeing all of your achievements in school, so until we are all back together again please ask Mummy or Daddy to send me photos and emails of what you have been up to.

Easter

Well done Otters for getting stuck in and trying so hard with your work so far.  You have made it to the Easter Break! Miss Wren has an Easter Challenge to keep you busy over the holidays.

I am sure that many of you are getting to the end of the extra books that we sent home.  Oxford Owl is a fantastic website which is free to sign up to and has a large selection of ebooks to read.

The Reading Egg website is also offering a free 30 day trial and has great activities to help with reading, spelling and maths.  My children are really enjoying this at the moment.

Have a lovely holiday, look after each other and try not to eat too much chocolate.

Lots of Love

The Egg Drop

I have really enjoyed seeing your photos of your egg dropping investigations today.  I love that they are all so different.  By the looks if it we have some survivors and some of you must have been having scrambled egg for tea.

 

Hi Otters

Well as promised, here is the challenge from Mrs Harris.  Can you beat her and do more ‘keepy uppies’ with a toilet roll?  Let me know how many you manage.  Come on Otters, you can do this!

I have been sent some more lovely photos.  A beautiful chalk rainbow message, rainbow pictures in windows, measuring, stories, Lego mazes, maps, P.E, timestables, an investigation on the importance of hand washing, a hedgehog habitat and some fantastic new characters for Traction Man to battle.  I hope he’s feeling brave!

Numbots, writing, measuring, puppets, rainbows, R.E and dissecting flowers.  You have all been busy.  I was in school today to look after some of our children whose Mummy and Daddy are having to go to work, so I was lucky to see one Otter in school and got a big smile and wave from another Otter as I was driving home.

Keep trying your hardest

Hi Otters,

 

We hope you are well and getting ready to start your learning at home.  We will be sending out lots of different activities to keep you busy.  In the front of your orange book is a 100 square.  Every time Mummy or Daddy think you have tried your hardest you can colour a square in.

If Mummy or Daddy think you have done any extra special work then please ask them to send an email to the office as Miss Wren will still be awarding Golden Tickets.

For PSHE we thought it would be a lovely idea for you all to paint rainbows to go in your windows to unite us all in this difficult time.

Look after yourself and we will catch up with you soon

Science - Seasonal Change - Testing the wind, using data loggers to test temperature and taking part in the 'Great School Birdwatch' for the RSPB

In PSHE we are learning about 'keeping safe'.  We were lucky enough to have a visit from Sergeant Oates who talked about what Police do to help keep us safe.  He talked through and showed us some of the equipment they use and we got to go inside the police van and put on the lights and sirens.  Some of us were then able to go outside and help Sergeant Oates use the speed camera.  In the short time we were outside, 2 drivers were spoken to about the speed they were driving and were asked by some of our Otters to drive more carefully past our school!!

Halloween fun - making predictions in science and making yummy chocolate apples

Science: We were very lucky to have some super cute visitors in our science lesson to help us learn more about living things. We spent our English lesson in the morning writing questions that we wanted to ask to help us find out more about what puppies need to keep them alive, healthy and happy. We had lots of fun meeting the puppies and finding out more about them and then once they had left we used what we had found out to make a leaflet titled 'how to care for a puppy'.
