I love this version of this super song

Have you listened to this yet ?  I've always liked this song ( by Foo Fighters). What do you think of it?
I love the message of this version too? What are your thoughts on it? 

Times Like these

P.S.I had to get my girls help tell me who some of the performers are - which made me feel old!

another maths puzzle - CUBE PUZZLE

How many small cubes are needed to complete this cube? 
I love this one! Any answers?

What is your favourite board game?

Over the last few weeks at home I have been playing lots of board games with my family.  We had an epic monopoly game last Friday (which after a promising start I  became  bankrupt in)  but this week has been all about 'Cluedo'  - a problem solving fun game which has quickly become our new family favourite. 

My girls are now 9 so we have moved on from the Junior monopoly to the traditional older game. This is a little darker, but far more challenging.  It requires concentration, problem solving skills, strategy and a good memory. A little bit of luck helps too!

What is your favourite board game and why? 

Leave  me a message to tell me all about it. 

Start of summer term - Home schooling

As the ‘holidays’ draw to a close on Sunday, home schooling begins again for many next Monday. My staff team will be sharing week weekly tasks to be completed at home.  These will be on the class blogs (see below for links) each and Every Monday. This is of course guidance and provides meaningful tasks that will support you and more importantly the children’s learning. 

We are suggesting that every ‘home school’ day children should complete:

a daily  physical activity (walk, run, bike ride or work out (e.g. Joe Wicks) following social distancing guidelines
Daily reading – individual, reading with, read to, audiobook etc 
Daily mental maths (e.g. TT Rock stars, tables tests etc.) 
A daily maths lesson activity – see class blog – White Rose Hub lesson and follow up activity 
A daily English activity – see class blog
And a topic/theme activity – see class blog
A daily chore – e.g. cooking, cleaning, gardening, etc.  - Your choice!

Easter Work

We suggest that over this 2 week Easter  period each child does the following :
  • Daily physical activity (keeping safe and follow social distancing guidelines)
  • Keeping  a journal (age appropriate). Taking photos of any games, tasks they do, writing a few sentences – paragraphs about their day etc.
  • Daily reading – solo reading,  being read to, reading to someone, audiobook,
  • Practising timetables (e.g. TT rockstars)
  • Visiting class and school blogs – adding comments to existing posts and accessing links to other recommended websites from the links on these pages.
  • Household chores and jobs
  • Enjoy some downtime and free play
  • Writes letter, makes calls, zoom/skype/facetime  etc. to friends and family members – virtual social contact is important for us all!

We will not be setting any further work over the 2week ‘Easter Holiday’, but of course you can continue to exhaust the home learning packs and previous homework menu if you wish.

After Easter/ from Monday 20th April  we will be then sending some further tasks out (likely to be on a  weekly basis) for children to complete at home.
Please note that during the Easter period I am advising staff to also have some quiet time with their families and loved ones (other than on duty in school, when we are opening for children of key /frontline workers).

 Therefore email correspondence  and blog posts may well not be responded to until 20th April.

Please keep safe. Best wishes to all of you and the children.
Kind regards
Jon Watson

A message from Mrs Pierce

A message from Mrs Pierce:
We know that there are lots of reading resources available with books kindles and you tube etc. However we know how important familiarity can be during these strange times. 
Mrs Pierce has set up a ‘virtual toddler story time’ for the preschool children who normally visit our school on a Tuesday afternoon. She is uploading audio books that you can access via a free app ‘ a story time’ . Some of these books you may have at home so children can listen and follow on with their copy of the book or alternatively they can just listen to the story.

This facility is available to anyone who would like to use it by invitation using this following details.

You need to download the app (Free) and log in. 

 Then go to library and family you will be asked to join a family - use the QR code it will take you to the family called ‘toddler story time’. You can then click on a book and listen to Mrs Pierce reading the story.

Hello & Leave a message

Hello everyone.

I hope you are doing okay. Please leave a message to say that you have visited
