Easter holidays, by Miss Whalley

Date: 30th Mar 2020 @ 10:09am

Good morning my little pumpkins! Today is the first day of the Easter holidays. I think you all deserve a good rest and so I won't be setting any home learning for the next two weeks. I've been so impressed with how much work you've completed on IXL - look at our newest certificate this morning!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! I made the most of being able to go out of the house once a day and went on some long walks round a park near where I live. I saw some beautiful flowers along the way! I then made some banana bread - it is delicious! 

 

It's been really lovely to see your blog posts - I miss you all and so it's great to still be able to see you via your photos and videos! Here are some from the past few days - lots of fun is being had!

   

Keep your blog posts coming - did you know that you can comment on each other's posts to say hello?

Have a great Monday!

Miss Whalley

Good morning my little pineapples! I hope you're all well and still enjoying learning from home! Did any of you go outside last night to clap for the NHS and to show how thankful you are? I did and there was lots of people doing the same on my street. I could hear people cheering and car horns being beeped from far away and there were even fireworks! I live really close to Salford Royal Hospital and I hope they could hear how much everyone appreciates them

Features of the Titanic, by The Gates Primary School

Date: 11th Mar 2020 @ 3:55pm

This afternoon, we looked at the features of the Titanic. We discussed the building of the Titanic, where we learnt that The Titanic was the largest man made object to enter the sea and 15,000 people worked to build the Titanic!

We then delved deeper into the different types of rooms, looking at the differences between 1st, 2nd and 3rd class passengers. Based on our knowledge of this, we created rooms in a shoe box to demonstrate what it might have looked like.
