A day in school

Posted by Heather Smith in School

On Friday Miss Carter was in school and this is what they got up to:-

We completed an emoji book title quiz emoji-story-books-challenge
We spent 30 minutes on mathletics/spellodrome/phonics play (depending on year group)
We created a story/poem using the theme of castles.
We spent an hour completing a section from our home learning grids.
And in the afternoon, we completed a four triangles investigation. You have to make a square and cut the square diagonally to make four equal triangles. Then you have to make new shapes by re-joining the triangles. We created 10 different shapes. Can you make any more?

As well this week the key worker children have done the following:- a nature scavenger hunt, a senses walk which formed the basis for poems which the children then wrote, a science investigation around finding out the best shape and size for a paper aeroplane and  writing instructions on how to wash your hands properly.

We wish you all a very happy half term.


In school this week!

The key worker children this week have been busy in school being very creative. Mrs Taft taught the children how to use clay to make pots and tiles which was great fun with everyone making at least a pot or a tile. Outside Mrs Sankey got the children creating animal pictures using what ever could be found on the field or in the woods. Then to finish the week Mrs Langford showed the children how to make a type of play-dough using hair conditioner and cornflour. As you can imagine it was very messy!!!

Here are some resources about Captain Tom Moore that you could use to make a power point about him. For more ideas look at the Class Blogs to see what other children have produced.

Message from Mrs Sankey

Posted by Heather Smith in School
Dear parents, carers and children,
Today is the first day of the Easter holidays and it feels very strange as everyday feels the same, regardless of it being a Monday, Thursday or Sunday. I hope you have all enjoyed reading the class blogs from the class teachers and teaching teams. They are fantastic to read especially the little extras the teachers are suggesting you can all do.
I appreciate just how difficult it must be for everyone at the moment, especially with the glorious weather – my son and I are making use of our garden and the local area in South Wonston for our daily walk.
For those of you fortunate to have a back garden to play in, I love some of the National Trust’s ideas to keep you busy. My son tried out no. 27 yesterday – star gazing and with the lovely weather due at the end of the week why not camp outside too!
The whole school team are missing everyone and wish you all much health and happiness during these unprecedented times. We hope to see you all again at school soon and we will keep everyone updated with our plans once we know more from the government.
We will post new home learning activity overviews on Monday 20th April. Until then, enjoy the next two weeks being the Easter holidays and I am sure everyone deserves a little less school work and more Easter fun and games.
Sending all the children a social distancing hug.
Take care and keep safe.
Love Mrs Sankey x
