Log into Showbie each day this week to watch a poet reciting some of his poetry. He will then talk you through how to write your own poetry. We know there are some fantastic poets in Silver Birch Class, so give it a good go. Are you brave enough to recite your poem in front of the camera? If so, ask an adult to film you reading your poem and upload it to Showbie to share with your teachers and friends.
Have a wonderful day celebrating the 75th Anniversary of Victory in Europe Day! Whatever you get up to, be sure to unwind, relax and enjoy the sunshine. You've worked so hard and really deserve this day off.
We should have been at the Pioneer Centre this week. Let's not be downhearted though...let's bring the residential trip to our very own homes!! Check out Showbie for some exciting and adventurous ideas for you and your family to get involved in this week. Enjoy! Be sure to let us know how you get on. You can either upload photos to Showbie, leave a blog comment below, or even send us a postcard. We can't wait to hear what you've been up to!
Hi Everyone! Lovely to speak to a few more of you on the phone today. Well done again for making such a wonderful start to your home learning this term. Thank you for uploading your pictures to Showbie. Keep up the good work! As if we haven't given you enough resources already...I have come across this today. The Oak National Academy have set up daily lessons for English, Maths and another subject each day. These are online lessons delivered by real teachers. I have watched a few of the tutorials and they are really good quality. I watched a particularly good history lesson all about Henry VIII, earlier today. If you're looking for something a bit different, why not give it a go some time! Let me know what you think.
Hi Silver Birch Class! I hope you're all well and have enjoyed the beautiful weather over the Easter break. The Perry family have certainly enjoyed being in the garden and long walks rambling across the fields. It's been lovely spending some quality family time and taking life easy. We're looking forward to Monday and getting a little more structure back into our lives. I wonder if you and your families are the same...?! On Monday, make sure you log into Showbie to find a set of new tasks ready and waiting for your home learning. This week, you'll be able to find maths activities, writing, spelling and handwriting. As well as this, you'll find another BINGO sheet. This term our topic is Anglo Saxons and Vikings. It's a shame Ms Esberger and I won't be able to teach you this topic, but we thought that you would enjoy doing your own research into this fascinating historical topic. There is plenty to choose from on here, including: writing, artwork and cooking. We would suggest you spend some time researching the topic and having a go at some of the activities. It's been great that some of you have uploaded your learning onto Showbie to share with the teachers and your friends. Keep it up - we love to see your hard work. Ms Esberger and I have begun a second round of phone calls, so if you haven't heard from us already, you can be sure to receive a phone call this week or the next. We look forward to speaking to you!
I've finally managed to speak to all of you! It's been wonderful hearing your voices and finding out about all of the exciting things you've been up to. It's been lovely having a catch up with mums and dads too. I'll let you all enjoy your Eater break and start another round of phone calls next week. Take care, enjoy the Easter Bingo activities and have a fantastic Easter weekend. Stay safe and well. Lots of love, Mrs Perry xxx
Silver Birch Class, it's been wonderful hearing about all of the amazing home learning you've been up to. You've been working so hard and I'm really impressed. Thank you to those of you who have uploaded photos to Showbie of some of the fantastic activities you've been up to - cooking, jigsaws, artwork, exercise, science experiments etc etc. It's been wonderful being able to speak to you and your parents on the phone. I'm sorry, but there are just three families I haven't been able to speak to. I've phoned a few times and left messages. Not to worry...hopefully I can catch up with you soon. After two weeks of hard work, you deserve a rest...have a super Easter break! Remember, there are Easter Bingo activities to do to keep you busy, but other than that keep active, healthy and look after yourselves.
Once again, it has be a joy to be able to speak to some of you over the phone. So many of you are working hard and it's great to hear that you're staying safe and healthy. I spoke to Olivia today, albeit very briefly, as well as he mum, Miss Camden. She told me that Liv has come up with a challenge for her family to complete a marathon during their exercise time. What an incredible idea this is! I know my family and I have loved our daily walk, run, bike or scoot. It's our favourite part of the day. Yesterday, we walked across lots of fields, wracking up nearly 5 miles. Today, Martha and Edward had a bike ride, whilst Mr Perry and I jogged alongside them...again, this was about 5 miles. This got me thinking about Liv's challenge, and made me think that we're on our way to achieving a marathon this week. Could you and your family do it too...? Most of you are able to get out for a walk, bike, scoot or run, so why not push yourselves to see how far you can go. It's great exercise and you may even discover some beautiful areas of the countryside that are right on your doorstep, that you didn't even know about. I know we have! For those of you who are self-isolating could you do it in a different way? Maybe you could join Joe Wicks for a workout...maybe you could dance along to Just Dance...maybe you could set up an obstacle race in the back garden. Whatever you choose, keep it active and enjoyable for the whole family! I've now phoned everyone in the class, but I'm still yet to speak to about five or six families. Remember, when I phone it will say 'caller unknown'. I know it's easy to ignore these, but it could be me! I've been phoning around at around 11 O'clockish each day. Thank you. Stay safe and keep active!
I loved Mrs Westlake's choice of story for story time last night! 'Chocolate Cake' by Micheal Rosen is one of my favourites. Have you seen him performing his story? If not, follow the link and watch it. Trust me...you'll love it too! Who knows, maybe this will inspire you to write your own story/poem about your favourite food (ice cream, cookies, pizza, brussel sprouts...)? Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7BxQLITdOOc
