Summer Half Term Holiday

Date: 31st May 2020 @ 3:00pm

Hi Year One,

It seems such a long time since we all saw you and we would love to hear your news.

I’ve been out and about on lots of walks around my local area.  

This morning it was bright and sunny and I strolled to Victoria Park to see the ducks on the lovely lake. First I remembered to read the sign because I wanted to learn about the right healthy food to feed them next time I come to the park. I found out that they like birdseed, peas, corn, oats, lettuce, cooked rice and grapes. Then I learnt that bread makes ducks ill and does not contain the right nutrients for them  and it also pollutes the water. After that I saw lots of friendly mallards, drakes and an elegant moor hen perched on a log, near the edge of the lake. Then a curious goose came out of the lake to say hello.  What a beautiful day!

Hope you and your family are keeping safe in the sunshine.

What have you enjoyed doing?

Hi Mrs Sherman
I have been to Taylor park with mummy and Liberty rose. I saw a morehen it was sat on the nest of eggs. They have still not hatched it takes ages. There is also a swan sat on her nest of eggs and that is taking a long time too. We go back every week to see if they have hatched.
I have also learned a new skill, rollerskating. I feel happy about it. I miss you.๐Ÿ˜˜

Hi Lexi-Mai
Wow! You are super bird watchers. Next time I go to the park I'll have a closer look to see if I can discover any nests or baby birds. Let me know when the eggs hatch in Taylor Park.Congratulations on learning how to roller skate. I remember finding that very tricky when I was your age
I really miss your happy smile and hope to see you and your friends soon. x

Iโ€™ve had a lovely week off! Itโ€™s been so lovely. We went to Taylor Park and we saw Elizabeth. We had a distanced play and played hide and seek. It was so nice to see one of my friends.
Iโ€™ve spent a lot of time in the garden, in the paddling pool and playing swing ball, colouring and drawing. I had a lot of BBQs. I have been helping by reading the instructions of how long they take to cook.
We did bubble wrap painting as well.
I watched the rocket launch it was amazing and watched them enter the International Space station! I stayed up late to see if we could see them on their second passing.
I made my own cardboard rocket.
We had a mini disco and a glow stick party. Mummy put glow sticks on our body and we danced around in the dark. It was really funny.
We had a pamper night too and I had a tiger face mask and put cucumber on my eyes.
I made some chocolate lollipops, we had to melt the chocolate and then I put in a heart shape. I put it in the fridge until it went into a solid piece of chocolate before I could eat it!
I have played lots of games too.
I miss you. Stay safe xxxxxx

What a lot of exciting things you have been doing Gracie! It's great that the weather has been so nice so that you can get out and about and enjoy having BBQs with your family. I've had a few BBQs too in my garden.
Pamper nights and discos sound amazing and lots of fun - you are lucky!
Stay safe & carry on having lots of fun! x

I have spent alot of time in the garden, doing some painting, playing a tin can game, football and swingball, helping to water the garden and playing in my paddling pool. One day I made a pirate boat and a replica Titanic ship out of recycling materials to see if the different shapes would float we tested them using a replica iceberg made from a milk bottle carton. It was fun although the cardboard sails on the prate ship soon got soggy! I have also made a scarecrow which I dressed in an old Batman tshirt and black pants and made a head using paper mache on a balloon. I had to mix up some paint colours to paint a face and painted a black mask with mummy's help. It is stuffed with old newspapers so hopefully it will stay dry a bit longer or he will go a bit floppy.
I also watched the rocket launch from America and stayed up late to see the Internatiional Space Station fly over a couple of hours later.
I have also had a couple of goes of riding my bike on the playing fields without stabilisers but have fallen off a couple of times. Mummy took me for an ice cream from bocboc as a reward for trying my best.
I have also been to visit my grandparents but just stayed in the gardens. I am looking forward to be able to see my friends and teachers again soon.

You have been very busy Robert and being very creative! Did your Titanic ship sink just like the real one did? I like the ideas of a Batman scarecrow have you got a photo of him?
Well done for trying to ride your bike without stabilisers - it's very tricky but once you can do it you'll feel really proud of yourself. Don't give up!
Take care and hopefully we can all see each other soon. x

Hi Isakau,
It's so lovely to hear all your exciting news. You are a super scientist learning all about space. Can you find out some fascinating facts?
You sound like you are enjoying lots of sporting activities too. I had a great time playing tennis with my grandson Zach, we tried our best even though it was boiling hot. I am looking forward to hopefully seeing you and some of your friends, having fun in the sun on our school field soon. Take care x

Hi Mrs Sherman,
I have done so much reading Iโ€™ve filled my reading book. ๐Ÿ“– ๐Ÿ“š My mummy has had to start a new list on another piece of paper. Grandma bought me a new book by David Walliams called bad dad. It does have some tricky words itโ€™s a big book but I read the word anaesthetic on my own and mummy and daddy were super proud. I hope I can see you and some of my friends soon xxx

Hi Isakau
I was so excited to see your message again. I think you have read even more books than you would have done if we had been at school.
I can't believe that you have started to read a David Walliams book . No wonder your mum and dad are so proud of you .
I've read some David Walliams books with my grandson Zach,he is in the juniors and they are his favourite books.I loved reading Grandpa's Great Escape the best. It made me laugh but also made me feel sad in parts and then happy again. I've not read Bad Dad maybe you could let me know what you like about it . It sounds like another funny story.
I'm sure you've been reading to your little sister too.
Hope you, your Grandma and all your family are healthy and happy.

Hi Mrs Sherman
I have been to Victoria park to with my mum and my little brother Zac. I have been working very hard trying to ride my bike without stabilisers and over the holidays I finally did it. I have continued to draw with rob and i have really come to love art. We also took a trip to Delamere Forrest where i enjoyed playing in the muddy puddles, wooden dens, rope swing and finding the Gruffalo.

Thank you for all your messages and photos. I'm missing seeing your happy smile. Take care x
