Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero
Good morning everyone. I hope that you had an enjoyable day yesterday and managed to have a little dance and sing along to 'Roar.'
Another song I thought would be appropriate for us is 'Hakuna Matata' - another fabulous song from 'The Lion King.' It's title is from the Swahili language spoken in Africa and means 'no trouble' or 'no worries.'
I hope that now we know we will all be back at school together again soon, that any worries or sadness you have felt at not being with your friends are lifting away. If you have any worries about returning to school we will share and discuss them at our Zoom meeting on Friday.
Here is the song as sung in the film and also a different version with the lyrics. Try and have a practice throughout the day. Where there is an instrumental section have your instruments ready too. Put some of your freestyle dance moves in too. You all have such great rhythm that I know you will be dancing along!
As we are celebrating World Book Day a week today (Thursday 4th March), you may like to start thinking about a book character you may like to be and to start thinking about what is your favourite book. We will have our class zoom on Thursday next week to show the character we have become and to share our favourite books. We may also have a whole school zoom and will have our author zoom too! Could I say zoom one more time?
Don't go to a lot of expense for a costume; for our staff shared story I am just making a mask, so seeing as you are very good at making these now you might like to do something similar?
I am going to give you a tiny, sneaky peek at the book we are doing as a staff. See if you think you recognise it from the photo I include!
I don’t know if any of you watched ‘The Masked Singer’, Mrs Tildsley and I loved guessing who everyone was! 🤩
Can YOU guess which of your friends are behind these amazing tiger masks?
Our Learning Today

Our Maths Learning Today
How did you do counting in 2's yesterday? I bet you did really well. We aren't going all the way up to 100 at the moment, we are concentrating going up to 50, but if you would like to use the number splat square to go all the way to 100 you can. Here is the square to help you. Today we are counting in 5's. See how far you can count in 5's on the number square too as a warm up!
You have been flying high on your statistics work; I have seen and heard lots of great news from your work on block graphs, pictograms and tally charts so well done! Today we move onto a new unit on shapes and their properties. To get us started we will see how well we recognise 2D and 3D shapes...
