Welcome to

Great Casterton CE Primary School

Day One

Hello to Week 2 Class 2


Well, you made it through Week 1, so well done!  It was lovely to receive emails and photos from some of you last week (I did try to put one of the photos on, as I had permission from the parent, but I could not upload it).  They gave me a HUGE lift!  Wow at all of the work and fun activities going on in your homes.


It was also super to see Jack celebrating his birthday last week and photos of his amazing birthday cake, and it got me thinking.  We never got a chance to celebrate Mrs Haggerty's birthday, tomorrow (Tuesday) it is my birthday, and Kaya and Jayden also have birthdays coming up in the next few weeks.  You know that the Class 2 rule is that your birthday is nothing to do with you or your presents/party, but is in fact all about cake for your teacher?  Well, I decided to make this Class 2 Cake Week.  Your challenge is to design your dream cake, make a cake, produce a PowerPoint on cake (full of interesting facts), write a poem about a cake or anything else cake related.  If your parents agree, please send in photos/PowerPoints to the office and I will display them in the star folder on this page for photos.  Or any other photos that you and your parents would like to share - it makes not seeing you just that bit more bearable, and I know that you would all like to see what your friends are doing.


The weather is due to be a bit colder this week, so as well as the Joe Wicks activity (I LOVED seeing photos of some of you - you know who you are, and I did appreciate you not being in full Liverpool kit - doing Joe Wicks and a science activity) you might need to be a bit resourceful about how you exercise if it is colder.  Can you set up an obstacle course inside (I know that your parents will love me for that idea)?  How many star jumps/sit ups/press ups can you do?  Could you set up circuit training for your family?  Can you improve on your record each day?  Can you beat your siblings or parents? Can you teach someone in your family how to do a gymnastic or dance activity (would LOVE to see photos of this!!)?  


Remember that the work I set on here does not all have to be completed - either on the day that it is set, or at all.  Reading can be done anywhere at any time, there are so many free online activities and you can still be outside with a coat on and enjoying your gardens (ooh, you could do an obstacle course outside, or even one for your dog).  And don't forget this week's cake challenge.  Does anyone have any ideas for a class challenge for next week?  Your parents can email the office and they send all emails on to me.  I am in school at Empingham on Wednesday this week if your parents need to call me for anything.


So, enjoy your week, be nice to your family and get those cake ideas baking....
