Celebrating our Children and their Home Learning

Our children have been busy engaging with their google classroom home learning, having live sessions with their teachers and class mates but also finding time to immerse themselves in some fun activities too.

We wanted to share with you some of the images the children have sent in showing what they have been up to starting with Erin in 3BH has received her medal for her 5K run which is very impressive. Well done Erin.


Charlotte in 5JN has been busy baking these delicious looking cookies...if only you could put your hand through the screen and enjoy one with her!

Alesha in 5DE has been enjoying the interactive PE lessons at home, some fabulous balancing skills being demonstrated here.

William in 3AR has been missing Lincoln our well-being dog so decided to create a mosaic picture of him. I wonder if this will make it’s way to Mrs Hewitt’s office.

A visit from Mr Egypt!

Year 4 had an exciting start to their 'Walk like an Egyptian ' Topic with a visit from Mr Egypt, who is an Egyptologist. The morning consisted of learning about life during the Ancient Egyptian times and the children even had a go at dancing! During the day, the children wrote their names in hieroglyphics and had a go at Egyptian Maths. In the afternoon, the children learnt about mummification and even had a go at wrapping a mummy, which was great fun! At the end of the day, Mr Egypt retold a fantastic story about a boy and his passion for the Egyptians. The story ended with a twist. Ask your child about the story ending!
