Monday 30th March

Well here we are at the start of week 2!  It was lovely to see the photos that Joshua sent to the office last week. I can see he's enjoying his reading. Well done Joshua. I hope you've all had time to do some fun things in the last week. I had a go at making biscuits and flapjack, although neither of them worked very well. The flapjack stuck to the tin and we had to scrap it out. It didn't look great but it tasted O.K!  Perhaps baking isn't my thing!!

Emily and I set up an activity to see how many toilet rolls Louie could jump over. That was fun and he did pretty well once he got the hang of it. We did have to tempt him with a treat though!  I've also been reading lots, listening to an audio book and doing a bit of research on my family history, which is interesting. 

I've added some plans for this week's learning as a guide, but don't worry is you haven't done everything from last week or if you different tasks that you are working on.

Have a great day

Tuesday 31st March

Hi everyone.

I had a lovely day at Empingham school yesterday and we enjoyed making some colourful rainbows. I have put mine in my window. It was lovely to speak to some of you or your parents either while at school, or on the phone, and it sounds like you are all getting on well, working hard and having lots of fun. Joshua has sent me some more lovely photos so I’ve included one here for you share. It was also nice to hear from Ethan who said that he enjoyed the cut and stick activity, but he’s not really a fan of wordsearches! I love a wordsearch!

Have a good day

If you are struggling for books to read there are some online versions available on these websites. Not quite as good as the real thing but they just might help out for now.

Wednesday 1st April

Good morning

I hope you are feeling bright and breezy, and ready to face the day. Keep checking out the WhiteRose Maths Hub for daily lessons and then you could always put some of that weighing into practice by making your own balance at home. Try following this link for some ideas...

Thursday 2nd April

Good morning 

It feels a bit more like Spring this morning after yesterdays grey day. I can hear the birds chirping away and there is definitely some blue sky. I've been having a fiddle with the website, trying to organise things a bit better so you may notice some changes over the coming days.

It was lovely to receive a picture from Ethan and Alexa yesterday, and I could see they were enjoying a walk along the river at Great Casterton. Katie and I had a go at the Joe Wicks work out last night which got us feeling energised, so then we put on some music and had a good old dance around the kitchen! If you're looking for ways to keep active have a look at kidsbop...

Friday 3rd April

Good morning

Can you believe it's Friday again, and 2 whole weeks of home learning has passed. Usually on Friday we have a celebration assembly, so why don't you make some of your own certificates to award to members of your family. Think of reasons why you have all been amazing. I'm going to give one to Katie for making some lovely chocolate brownies, one to Emily for going food shopping for us, one to Mr Wood for cutting the grass and cleaning the shed roof and one to Louie the beagle for always making us laugh! I might even give one to myself for managing to work video phone calls with Mrs Tosney and Mrs Hughes yesterday!

Looking at the weather for the weekend and beyond it looks like we are going to get some sunshine and warmer temperatures so make sure you enjoy plenty of outside time and keep looking for those signs of Spring, - maybe even keep your own weather diary. I think keeping any kind of diary is always a good idea and it would definitely be something interesting to look back on once we are all back in school.  Why not give it a go, if you haven't already started one.

I am going to find some fun Easter activities to add for next week.

Have a lovely Friday, and don't forget it's Golden Time today!
