Morning Bombfire! I've put a rainbow up in my window too. When I was out exercising yesterday, I spotted 3 rainbows - 2 on windows and 1 chalk picture on a driveway. Happy rainbow hunting! Enjoy the lovely weather. Hope to see you soon, Mrs Clayton xxx

We have painted a rainbow to put in our window for people to count. we have also put a teddy bear so when you go out for a walk your going on a bear hunt. i am now going to do some science :)

Mrs Clayton wrote:

Fabulous Avagracee! I love the rainbow and bear hunt ideas! Hope there isn't too much "squelching and squerching! Hope you catch a big one!" At least you've got a beautiful day!

Take care and keep safe!

Hope to see you soon!

Hi Year 6, I hope everyone is joining Joe Wicks for his daily PE session at 9 am? I did it yesterday with my boys and I struggled to get out of bed this morning! My calf muscles are really aching! Just wanted to remind you all to show your usual "positive attitude to learning" to your "new teachers" at home - it can't be easy for them! (Miss Carr and I are currently typing up your reports and we will checking with parents/carers that you are all trying your best!!!) Look after yourselves, your families/friends and neighbours. Keep smiling! We will have to plan a great celebration when we all meet up again for our amazing "Class of 2020!" Thinking of you all x

Well done for keeping yourself busy, Potnoodle01! I can't wait to get back to school either - I'm really missing all of the staff and children (especially Year 6!) Hope to see you soon, keep busy. Mrs Clayton x

Hi, I have done Joe Wicks to keep me active and I've also tried out what Oti Mabusei (no idea how to spell her name) is doing. I have also done some maths mystery things as well as writing a newspaper report. I decided to do some water colour painting of my garden. I've also been out of course, what with the beautiful weather. That's all I've really done over the past few days. see you soon!

Mrs Clayton wrote:

Morning Bombfire! Glad to hear that you are keeping both your body and mind active. What a lovely idea to paint in the garden. (I'm too busy putting washing up on the line - taking advantage of the sunshine! I might try it later though.) Hope to see you soon, Mrs Clayton x

Good morning Year 6! What another beautiful day! I hope that you are all well, and that you are remembering to keep both your minds and bodies active? Have you been doing PE with Joe wicks each morning? Perhaps you could challenge the rest of your families to the "Bring Sally Up" challenges - you could vary the exercise each day. E.g. squats, press ups, sit ups etc. Please remember to send me a message on the school website if you have any questions about work, or you just want to chat. Look after yourselves and please keep in touch; I'd love to know what you are all up to. Take care, Mrs Clayton x PS potnoodle01 I counted three rainbows yesterday, when I went out for my daily exercise.

Mrs Clayton wrote:

Oops sorry... a slip of the keyboard! It should be "Joe Wicks" as PROPER NOUNS need capital letters, as you all know!

potnoodle01 wrote:

I went on a run with my mum this morning believe it or not! My high score of rainbows is 40! They are everywere ! Also it is really hard typing on this keyboard my fingers keep slipping!!!!

Mrs Clayton wrote:

I think that must be a record for rainbows!

Hi Mrs Clayton!!! My family have been keeping fit as Joe Wicks is our P.E teacher :) xx

Hi Avagracee, it's great to hear from you! I'm glad that you are all enjoying the Joe Wicks sessions. My sons and I do it live each morning, unless I am in school, and then I do some exercise later in the evening. Missing you all and looking forward to seeing you soon! Look after yourselves!

HI! I have been doing my work , a lot of it in the books i have got , i just did some English starters now i am going to do maths. I do think it is hard teaching yourself but i am just rolling with it. The sad thing is i have run out of books to read so if you know any good ones i will order them. It was recently my birthday and i had a good day i cannot wait to see my Nan , Grandad and grandma. I tried to write on here the other day but it wouldnt let me i dont know why. Also i know we have a times table rockslam with y5 but some of us have been put on the y5 team so hopefully they will fix it .hows things been going ? Hopefully they will lift the rules soon then we can all see each other! I have been doing a lot of art and did some painting yesterday i i am proud of it! I think i have rambled enough so i will probly write again tomorow. Bye! Bye!

Hi "Potnoodle01" it's lovely to hear from you! I'm glad that you are managing to keep up with your school work - it is very difficult working at home! (I think my husband would agree with you!) Hopefully it won't be too long before you can see your Nan, Grandad and Grandma! Happy Belated Birthday - perhaps you can celebrate it again with your grandparents post-lockdown! I have experienced some technical issues with the school website too - I think it is because the company who manage it (School Spider) have experienced some difficulties. I'll look into the problem with TTRockstars and see if I can sort it out. Looking forward to seeing you all again soon! Mrs Clayton xxx
PS I love to hear you "ramble!"
PPS Have you read "War Horse" and "The Diary of Anne Frank"?

Good Morning Mrs Clayton! the day i am writing this is the 4/5/20! i haven't been in a car now for ages :( the good news is that me and my family are being quite adventurous, Whilst walking the dog, on the rainy days we had put our wellies on and ran around in the rain and in squelching mud ( dad wasn't happy about that!) We have found lots of new pathways to go and explore during and after covid! i hope your well, stay safe, stay happy! Ava M xx

Hi Ava, it's lovely to hear from you - I am glad that you are all well and keeping busy! I have found some new routes where I live too - when cycling or running. It's amazing that I've driven past these lanes hundreds of times and never known where they go to! Keep exploring and keep in touch - I love to know what you are up to! Look after yourselves! Stay safe and keep smiling! I hope to see you soon,

It sounds like you've got a really structured day - well done! It's great that you have built in time for PE and relaxation each day! My family and I are well and keeping busy - thanks! I hope that your family is well too and coping with this challenging situation? Keep in touch! I hope to see you all soon, Mrs Clayton x

Hello again Shay! Just to let you know that I have downloaded a couple of reasoning papers for you. They are on the Year 6 class page, scroll down to resources - called reasoning 1 and 2. Take care, Mrs Clayton.

Shay wrote:

Thanks Miss Clayton
I have already done these but my mum is getting me some more.

Mrs Clayton wrote:

Shay, if you struggle to get any - look on the website https://www.satspapers.org.uk. You will be able to print off past papers for Maths and English.

Take care,

Mrs Clayton.

hi i came up with an idea to ligten up the mood. Take a couple of stickie notes and hide them around the house,garden,public places,or school (for the people who are still in school) and write some nice messages on (for example- you make me smile! ) . What do you think about that? i did in and hid it on my mum and dads wine glasses!!!! - Ava W :)

Mrs Clayton wrote:

Hi Ava, it's great to hear from you again! I love your "random act of kindness" - it is so thoughtful of you! I bet your mum and dad were pleased to see the post-its on their wine glasses! (By the way, wine is an "essential" product for parents during "lockdown - as it is purely "medicinal!") Please keep in touch. Hope to see you soon, Mrs Clayton x
