Happy Easter, by Miss Woodward

Date: 27th Mar 2020 @ 6:17pm

Well, that is the end of a very strange week and the start of the Easter holidays. It's not the way we expected to end but I've loved keeping in touch with some of you this week.

Here's the current progress from IXL, so many questions answered!

And a special shout out to Amelia, Chloe and Lola T, I think you three win for most questions answered in IXL this week, along with most texts read on readtheory. I won't be setting any work over the Easter holidays but feel free to keep blogging and letting me know what you're up to. I will be checking regularly and commenting where possible. Please continue to read as well, let me know about any new books that you are reading! 

It has been so good to see you blogging this week, here's a couple of pictures that made me smile today. 

Have a great break, let's hope the sun keeps shining!

Good Morning Robins, 

What a fabulous week we have had weather-wise. We made it to Friday I am pleased to see how well some of you have adapted to your home learning, I am very proud of how quickly you have embraced the change!

I'm really enjoying reading new books at the moment, I started a new one last night and it already has me hooked, with this in mind it would be great to see some more people using readtheory. Are any of you reading new books?

Last night, half my street came out to clap/support the NHS for the work that they are currently doing, it was a very moving moment. Did you join in with the clap? I'd love to hear about it if you did.

Thanks God! its Friday. - Home | Facebook

Purple Mash - Aztec Patterns, by Miss Woodward

I'm seeing some fantastic Aztec patterns created in Purple Mash as part of our Mexican learning. I think some of these patterns would make a great design for a new rug!

World Book Day, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:51pm

What a wonderful but busy World Book Day. Today we have enjoyed painting potatoes to look like our favourite book characters, had a couple of DEAR (Drop everything and read) moments, we got treated to Starlings coming in and reading to us and telling us about their books. We then took part in a World Book Day catwalk including the whole school and after all that some parents/ grandparents came in to read with their children and make some book marks! Thank you to all who attended the children really loved it, as shown in the pictures 🙂

Wash, wash, wash your hands, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:50pm

Today we have looked at washing our hands properly using the steps given on Newsround. We have learned the correct way to wash our palms, in between our fingers and even our thumbs. All this is done to the ‘happy birthday’ song which lasts 20 seconds (the period of time we should be washing our hands for).

Moon landing, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:49pm

This afternoon, we have explored some more facts about the moon. We watched the first moon landing and discovered that despite it happening over 50 years ago, the footprints are still there! So we created the first steps on the moon in salt dough ready for baking and displaying.

Measurements, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:47pm

This week we have been looking at length and height. We’ve discussed what we can measure in and have mainly been measuring using centimetres. The children helped Miss Woodward measure things around the classroom, we even tried our hand at a bit of estimation!

Thank you to all the parents who came this afternoon for our kindness enrichment, the children has a great time and really appreciated it.

Kindness Week, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 10th Mar 2020 @ 3:45pm

This week is Kindness week and as part of this we have been doing a random act of kindness on each days. Yesterday we made a friendship web to demonstrate how if the we are not kind to our friends, the bonds of friendship could be weakened. The web turned out to be strong enough to hold an item as well.
