Good morning everyone! I hope you are enjoying your week so far.
I can see from the emails how hard you are all working and so a HUGE thank you to you all for doing your very best. I made this video to impress Mrs Rogers. I loved your science lesson videos Mrs Rogers, so here I am doing the science activity. Do you agree with my choices children? 🤔
The Wednesday Word...
Whilst I finish my packing for my holiday in 7 months time I will send you straight over to Mrs Armstrong-Boyle who is ready to celebrate the Wednesday Word. I will join in too, don't worry!
Our Learning Today
Our grammar focus today - when to use full stops, question marks and exclamation marks.
Please follow the link below to our Espresso/ Discovery Education page and watch the teaching video...
To login our details are;
Enter username; student6922 and password; pauls321
Then if you can see ‘Activity 1’ and ‘Activity 2’ underneath the video box have a go at these too. Remember that a command can end in an exclamation mark too. It’s like a bossy sentence!
Year 1's - This is a good introduction to recognising the different punctuation we see at the end of our sentences.
Year 2's Hopefully I will start to see some exclamation marks appearing in your work. Have them in your 'writing tool kit' ready to use!
Today it's your final read of your non-fiction book; 'Baboons' or 'On Your Bike'. Your challenge is to read the book fluently like a storyteller and then answer the questions at the back of the book. As you have read the book three times you should have a very good understanding of what you have read. I wonder what our new book will be next week ...
Speed sounds with Rosie
Don't forget to join Rosie for our daily Read, Write, Inc phonics session anytime from 9.30am. Follow the link below.
Today I think we will all do great work with the set 3 sound ai and longer words for year 2 or those who fancy a challenge on 'ar'.

Our afternoon activity -Art
Wow! Aren't these amazing to look at? From the colours of the African landscape, to the woman carrying her child, to the animals and the jewellery we can see being worn, these are fabulous pictures. The final picture highlights the African love of music and dance. I slipped Xavier's own art work in from last week; did you spot it? It is wonderful Xavier.
Thank you so much Xavier and family for sharing these.
Enjoy making your jewellery. I can’t wait to see you wearing it. Email your photo to our email address;
or pop it onto the blog. Feel free to do a dance too! 🤗🙌
