Bluebell Class: September 2020 - July 2021

 

Story Sack

This week, Bluebell class have been celebrating our rescheduled World Book Day by creating their very own book sack based on this terms book 'The Day the Crayons Quit'

Starting from Monday 8th March, we will be returning to the below class arrival and departure times. Bluebell class PE days are Monday and Thursday, so please come in wearing your School PE Kit. 

 

Remote Learning Work

The children have brilliantly adapted to their remote learning lessons and curriculum work via Microsoft TEAMS. Miss Braid has been in her class with those children in school and together they have all managed to interact and enjoy some lessons together.

 

It is obviously not the same as all being together in person, but lovely to see the technology working in practice!

Catman Art!

You might spot a familiar face from Bluebell Class painting a rainbow in some new artwork if you are up by Church Street Playing fields. The Monument Pub have commissioned street artist Catman to add some artwork to their walls, as a way of showing support for the health and care workers currently on the frontline. What a lovely way to share some positivity!

Quarantine Question Time!

What animal would Miss Braid like to keep as a pet in her back garden and is there a rainbow in her window? Does Mr Hadlow find it easier to teach Lynx Class or his own children and what is his embarrassing disco move! Can you guess what Mr Baker's favourite Lockdown Lunch is and what new skill has he learned.  To find out, click on Mr Hadlow, Mr Baker and Miss Braid's Quarantine Question Time video as they reveal all!

Hi Hedgehogs! 

 

Oxford Owl: Free ebooks

I realised that some of you may be finding regular reading a little tricky whilst you're away from school - libraries are closed and you cannot just wander down the corridor to choose another book from the shelf...

 

So, with that in mind, have set up an account on the Oxford Owl website. The company that made this site are the people who publish all the "scheme" books we have at school so it will be particularly helpful for those of you that are on stage books. That said, the "e-books" on offer in their "e-library" are appropriate for those up to age 11 so you 'free readers' will find it useful too!


Get onto website using this link https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/ then click on "My class login" at the top of the page.

Log in using the username: Endowed Hedgehogs and the password: missbraid (I originally set this up for my class before realising how many others may need this too!). You can browse the e-books by age range, series or theme. You can turn the pages just like in a real book, and even have a narrator read along with you! Such a great resource, I hope you get lots from it.

Letter from Bradbury Grange

Exciting news: Dorcas received a reply from a resident of Bradbury Grange! And what a reply....99 years old! Imagine that.

 

Jean is going to be 100 very soon and she is an author of children's books and stories.

 

More exciting news, Arthur also received a reply from Jean - what a wonder lady.

Term 5 TT Rockstars Results

 

Hello all of you Times Tables Rockstars! 

It's been four weeks since our TTRockstars Championship winners were announced and we've been keeping count of all the coins that you've earned since. 

 

This term's class winners are Lynx Class with an impressive 96,361 coins.

 

A massive well done and thank you from all of the Lynx Class goes to Lily who earned 45,712 coins on her own! An amazing achievement, beating some of the other classes' combined scores! This means that Lily is our TTRockstars Queen for Term 5. Congratulations Lily!

 

Kurt in Year 3 put in a valiant effort, earning over 18,000 coins for 2nd place and Stuart in Year 6 finished 3rd with over 12,000 coins. 

 

Well done to everyone who took part this term and don't forget to keep practising over the next few weeks! Perhaps the TTRockstar trophy can move from Lynx Class next term - it's becoming part of the furniture in there!   Mr Leone

Plantastic!

June 2018

The children of Potter class were given the challenge to create new recycling ideas having been inspired by our Plastic Free July. After an encouraging brainstorming session they came up with “Plantastic!” Plastic milk containers cut in half and recycled as hanging plant pots. The children had lots of fun designing their hanging planters and learning about different plants. We look forward to seeing their creations blossom during the next few weeks.

Learning how to make Pizzas!

Potter class had a fab morning learning how to make Pizzas at Pizza Express.
