Thank you for sending the writing sheets to us and the writing levels. It makes it easier for us to ease her into writing and to know the sort of level she should be working towards.

Ivy was keen to share these pictures of her writing using said sheets (not necessarily for the website). She has made some progress with this. She is into gardening, getting quite knowledgeable so was keen on the plant task.


We went on a walk and collected lots of leaves and flowers. Jack grouped them together and added up the total of each thing.

Millie’s story “Harry and the dinosaurs meet Pumpasaurus at the soft play”.

India’s dinosaur week, which she really enjoyed. She especially liked designing her own dinosaur and making the salt dough model, and then we finished with another fun party!

It was also a lovely surprise to get the head teacher well done certificate too.

Millie read Peace at Last beautifully to her sister.
Her favourite part of the book was the noises because they were funny and funky. She drew pictures of all the things that make a noise in the book. 
We have had a good chat about what Mr Bear might have done next to sleep. Millie thinks “He has some milk but it didn’t work”. 

Lola has been busy baking!

Please see attached the dinosaur created by Millie. 
This is a pumpasaurus. It has an angry face, purple horns, green scales, a tail and instead of roaring with its mouth...it pumps very loudly! It is a carnivore and it traps it’s prey with super sticky snot blasted from it’s big nose. 
This is a boy pumpasaurus, the girls are more colourful. 

Here’s a a few pictures of things that Evie got up to last week.....
She drew and wrote about the story ‘Pirates love underpants'

Thomas has loved the Elmer work this week as he has lots of the Elmer books. He thinks that his favourite might be the one with Rose the pink elephant in too. Thomas can not wait to come back to school and see all of his friends and teachers. He is missing them lots.

India has researched about Orla Kiely today and loved the pear design the most! Please find the original attached and her drawing of that design.

This was before he used the soap...


Hi there!
Last week Millie tested some of her senses - touch, taste and smell. Ten items were prepared and blindfolded she had to get what each item was, first by touch, then smell and then taste.
Lots of fun and harder than it looks!

Millie has been thoroughly enjoying the class zoom sessions.
She has drawn a lovely family portrait.
She’s been book-mad counting all the books on her shelves and reading to her sister every day.

We just wanted to share a few pictures of the things that Ruby has been getting up to whilst in lock down.
Ruby planted around 6 sunflower seeds and she has been watering them and measuring them every day. At the weekend Ruby was able to plant 4 of her sunflowers into the garden. ( she can’t wait for them to grow, she predicts they will grow taller than her).
Ruby has also been enjoying her maths work, Especially times tables. she is also really  enjoying watching the videos Mrs Mathews and Miss Finlay have made
for them to help learn their time tables.
We hope everyone is ok. Stay safe x

Paige is patiently waiting for her caterpillars to hatch out!

Paige is also creating her super villain Doctor Goblin!

We have enjoyed seeing photos of other children enjoying their learning at home so thought we'd send some of Lucy to add to them. Lucy has been working very hard on her school work and has been enjoying using her toys to help with her school tasks doing lots of reading and writing tasks, the online phonics, maths etc as well as having lots of fun baking, gardening and creating all sorts of things (especially a mess!) We have been using purple mash and have followed instructions to save and send but are not sure if it is going through. She has mostly been doing the maths games and is doing really well, but we can't tell if this registers or not. Please be assured that she is doing lots of different things and is happy, but also missing school!

Ivy is taking a break on Purple Mash, after a day working on the stock exchange!!!

I have been having fun with my mummy at home and have done some work. I’m trying to get better handwriting. So far we have learnt about space, flowers and money. I can spell all my red words from my hairy fairy book and also the common exception words. I practice reading every night with my Nannie on Face Time. 

I loved going star gazing with mummy at 10pm!!! We saw Venus and satellites. 


James went into his street to count the colours of cars and recorded his findings on a bar chart. He has also been learning about World War Two.
