We have continued to work really hard in Chestnut Class and wish Mrs Budiman all the very best as she recovers. Those children who attend the CWC are very busy under the guidance of Miss Heffer and Mrs Mathews and are being very industrious throughout the busy day. Equally at home the work posted is completed daily and the portfolios are truly bulging with top quality and very creative photos of the results of all the tasks set. You are all taking full advantage of living in glorious Devon with the added sunshine this week. I am super impressed with the dedication and attitude shown by all the children who are trying their best to keep up with the learning in Mrs Budiman's absence. Well done.
Lots of work on measurement this week and a superb Science experiment. Don't forget to SHARE A STORY on World Book Day and dress up if you can find a favourite story character. You will need a toilet/kitchen roll cardboard tube to get creating too! Good luck.
We have one more week until we can all return. Do try on your uniform and pack your pencil case! We can't wait to see you all and I will be posting a link for you to join me for registration daily at 9:15. It would be lovely to see and hear from you.
Well done Chestnut Class.
We are all missing Mrs Budiman but I have to say how marvellously well you have all coped giving Miss Heffer a chance to share her talents! The class have been very busy with a morning packed with phonics, writing, reading and maths learning. The afternoon sessions are a little more relaxed now and have opened up the opportunities to be more creative. We had to design a special 'Thinking Cap' and had to try to make a catapult that actually fired and had the challenge of designing a working marble run!
I am pleased to see the many, many ways that you are making the home learning fit in with your own home circumstances. I was so pleased to hear how, despite the lockdown restrictions, the children are caring for the environment, for their mental and physical health and of course not to forget Valentine's Day!
Wishing you all a well deserved restful half-term break.
Thank you to Miss Heffer, Mrs Nuthall, Mrs Mathews and Mrs Cassels.
Wishing mrs Budiman a speedy recovery.
Lockdown Week 5
The children in Chestnut Class are working so very hard. They have continued to complete their daily phonics and they have read an impressive amount of books accessing the Oxford Reading Owl library. See below for the link as we know you are missing the real books.
The work in Science continues as the children develop their understanding of Materials. The portfolios are full of work as the children found examples of all the materials in their homes. This was then followed up by research into Biographies, in particular looking at the work of the famous Isambard Kingdom Brunel. This famous engineer built the amazing Clifton Suspension Bridge. Have you ever been there? The children produced some amazing artwork looking very carefully at the detail. This engineer became the focus of the history lessons this week as the children tracked his marvellous achievements.
On Friday the children finished their week's work thinking about Children's Mental Health by 'Dressing to Express' themselves. It was a delight to be able to see the creative ways they wanted to express themselves at school and at home. Well done everybody and keep up the great work at home.
