01 Apr Hello from the Teachers (Year 3 and 4)
We have been working hard behind the scenes to make the best out this very bizarre situation we are in! See below a note from the teachers at HT to say hello and check in. There is also a little fun challenge set from each teacher. Take a picture of yourself completing the challenge and bring it in when we next see you all.
Hello Beech Class, how are you all? I hope that you are keeping safe, healthy and happy. It is very strange writing this and not being able to see you. I am really missing all of you; our morning exercise and your lovely smiley faces – I can’t wait to see you again. My first week at home has been busy. I have had some exciting news. I have had plans approved for an extension on my house. I am so excited for the work to get started (after we come out of lockdown) and have been spending time choosing a new kitchen as you can see in the picture….. Cath Kidston is one of my favourite brands and they have released some new paint! I am struggling to choose which one I like the best. Which ones do you like? Comment below and tell me either 1, 2, 3 or 4.
My April challenge: I know how much we all love drawing and designing in Beech class so my challenge for you it to design your own floral paint. It can be any design and colour – be creative and have fun. Make sure that you keep them to show me when we are back.
Hope you’re all well and staying safe. I’m sure you are all doing an amazing job with your home learning like you always do in school, as well as having some fun! I’ve been getting some fresh air and having fun by doing some exploring each day. You will have to tell me all of the great things you have been doing when we next see each other. Hopefully will see all of your smiley faces soon. Missing you all! Keep smiling!
My April challenge: Here’s a little challenge for you to do at home. I wonder how many times can you fold a piece of paper in half? I managed to fold it 12 times in total but can you beat me?
Hi Poplar class,
I hope you are all well and healthy. I have been using my daily exercise allowance to take Stella for long walks (keeping 2 meters away from other dog walkers, of course) and trying to train her to lie down and roll over. She has not yet mastered this but I will keep you updated! I hope you are all enjoying this down time and getting some home learning done. I can’t wait to hear about all of the new things you have learnt and done during this time. Remember as well as adults teaching you things, you could also teach them! Thinking of you all.
My April challenge: Your challenge is to draw a picture of Stella blindfolded. This was my blindfold sketch. I’ll have to admit, I have been using this time to work on my sketching.
During my daily exercise I found a shelter. Do you think it is bear proof…? It reminded me of the fun we had at Sayers Croft, especially when Mr Bowley dressed up as a bear! Can’t wait to see you all again and share all our stories. Oh and the girls who were on my side of the dormitory, I hope you’re not waking your parents up at 4.45am! See you all soon and try to look out for a good shelter when you are on your walks.
My April challenge: I recently read in the news that a really good way to keep active is to plant some seeds. You’ve learnt all about what plants need to grow so now you can have a go at home. Do you have a sweet tooth like me? Well this growing challenge is perfect for you! All you need is some sugary cereal (I used Cheerios, they work well) plant about 5 pieces into a medium sized pot. Water 3 times a day and keep somewhere warm and dry. In 7 days you should have your very own Doughnut Tree! Take a picture of your plants and show me them when I see you. Remember, don’t eat too many sugary treats and if you do, clean your teeth after.
Dear Elm Class,
I hope you are all happy and doing what you can each day to feel healthy and strong. It feels very strange not seeing you in school – I am thinking about you all! I am still working on planning lessons for you as well as trying to teach my own son to write his name and start some phonics before he starts big school in September. I will ask you all to give him some advice when we see each other again. I will check in again soon – keep up TTRS and read, read, read! If you can…create something! A piece of music; a painting; a sculpture; a dance or even program your own computer game using coding skills? I am tying my best to do the Joe Wicks daily P.E. class as well as reading lots of books. Yesterday, I read The Tiger That Came to Tea by Judith Kerr. However, I’m sure I wasn’t alone when I was reading…
My April Challenge: Where is Mrs Brodie?
Mrs Brodie had an unexpected visitor in her house for tea. Can you unscramble the words to find out where the tiger has taken her for tea?

Dear Elm Class,
I have been thinking of you everyday and am happy to report that my knee is much better and that I will be back to school when we all come back. I can’t wait to see you all! I’ve missed you all so much and hope that you are being positive, are happy and keeping safe. I have had a very busy first week carrying on planning learning activities for you to do when we come back. I have also been doing my daily knee exercises and walking my puppy Bonnie (who you can see in the picture). She hasn’t mastered keeping her distance at the moment so we are constantly crossing the road! Today, I went into my garden to let Bonnie have a run around and was amazed to see my spaghetti tree had produced its crop. I’m so pleased as it’s been difficult to buy pasta in the shops at the moment. Do you have one of these trees in your garden?
My April Challenge: If you haven’t got one, can your try and grow your own spaghetti tree? The trick is to ensure you measure out your spaghetti accurately – you need 3 pieces of spaghetti and their length must add up to 56cm.
Love, Mrs Fraser.
Hello Spruce class!
When I am not teaching all of you my lovely Spruce, I am helping to look after my baby cousin while his parents are working. He absolutely LOVES pretending to be an aeroplane and zooming around the house!
Hope you are all keeping safe and sound in doors and are enjoying the home learning that we have set for you! Make sure you do the bug hunt! I did that with a few children when I was in school and we had the best time! We even found some tadpoles in the mindfulness garden!
Thinking of all of you daily and sending you and your family lots of love and blessings.
My April Challenge: My challenge to you Spruce, is to see how many aeroplanes you can count in the sky today? **look extra hard!**
Speak to you soon,
