Hello everybody, 

You have all worked incredibly hard at home with your learning and a huge thank you to all your mummy’s and daddy’s who have been keeping me up to date with your fantastic learning. There will be no home learning challenges next week as it is half term. You all deserve a well earned rest.

Hello class 6,

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. Have you seen the video all the teachers have made? We have all made a wish for when we go back to school. What would your wish be?  I would love to hear them. Maybe you could make your own video or you could write your wish down, draw a picture and send me a picture of it. I have uploaded this weeks challenges for you and I look forward to seeing all your learning.

They were enjoying the sunshine too. I hope you all had a nice weekend too. I have uploaded this weeks challenge for you. Please email me any work you do from the challenges.

Hello children,

I hope you had a nice break over the weekend and enjoyed some sunshine. We should have been back to school today after the Easter holidays but as we cannot be together in school I have put a weekly challenge sheet on the website. I have had a go at planting some seeds this weekend and hope to grow some peas. I will post some pictures on here of how I did it and keep you updated on the changes that happen as they grow. Remember to email me any work that you get up to. Keep safe!

Hi class 6, 

I hope you are all keeping safe and well. I am missing seeing you all at school. I have enjoyed receiving all

your emails and seeing all the hard work you are doing. Mr Ward shared a wonderful idea with all the teachers and I thought some of you might like to join in. Have a look at the poster below and maybe you and your family could join in. 
Keep safe everyone and remember to send me your super learning so I can share it with all your friends.

As it is Easter this weekend I thought I would share some Easter themed activities with you.

 

Easter Nests

These are really easy and tasty too! 

Ingredients:

 

Method:

  1. Melt the chocolate in a small bowl placed over a pan of barely simmering water. Pour the chocolate over the cereal and stir well to combine.

  2. Spoon the chocolate wheat into 12 cupcake cases and press the back of a teaspoon in the centre to create a nest shape. Place 3 mini chocolate eggs on top of each nest. Chill the nests in the fridge for 2 hrs until set.

You could ask a grown up to boil some eggs and then you could have a go at decorating them with different lines and patterns.

Have an egg and spoon race with your family. Maybe you could have your own sports day!

Hello Class 6,

I have had a busy weekend trying to keep busy I have tidied the house and made a roast dinner. I have been busy in the garden getting it ready for the summer lots of weeding! One evening I went for a walk to the beach and it was very quiet there was no one else on there! It was quiet and I loved listening to the birds and the water. Keep safe everybody!

Hi class 6,

I have been baking again today and made some flapjack this time! They are very easy to make with a little help from a grown up and taste delicious. Maybe you could have a go at making some
 

Ingredients:

250g jumbo porridge oats

125g butter

125g light brown sugar

2-3 tbsp golden syrup
 

Method:

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

  2. Put 250g jumbo porridge oats, 125g butter, 125g light brown sugar and 2-3 tbsp golden syrup in a food processor and pulse until mixed, but be careful not to overmix otherwise the oats may lose their texture.

  3. Lightly grease a 20x20cm baking tin with butter and spoon in the mixture. Press into the corners with the back of a spoon so the mixture is flat and score into 12 squares.

  4. Bake for around 15 minutes until golden brown.

Hi class 6!

I have been busy this week doing some jobs around the house and keeping it clean. The clocks went forward on Sunday so the evenings are now lighter so I have been walking in the evening. I enjoy watching the sun setting whilst out on my walk. I hope you are all keeping safe and well! Keep in touch.

Hi class 6, 

I have had another busy day in the garden today weeding! Whilst I was gardening I came across some of the signs of spring. I saw the flowers blooming and even found some minibeasts hiding in the soil. Let me know if you find any. Maybe you could do some writing about what you find. 

Wednesday 25th March 2020

I have had quite a busy week so far enjoying the sunshine and I hope you have managed to get outside and enjoy it too. I have been doing some gardening and even found a frog!! Let me know if you have seen any animals/minibeasts.

Today I spent the afternoon baking and made some butterfly buns maybe you could make some too!! I'll post the recipe for you to have a go.

 

Butterfly buns:

 

Ingredients

  • For the cake
  • 2 eggs
  • 110g (4oz) self-raising flour
  • 110g (4oz) butter/margarine
  • 110g (4oz) Caster sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • For the icing
  • 220g (8oz) icing sugar
  • 110g (4oz) butter

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C (fan)/200C (electric)/Gas mark 6
  2. Lay out 12 cake cases in a bun tin
  3. Mix the sugar, flour and baking powder together
  4. Add the butter/margarine and eggs
  5. Whisk all of it together
  6. Using a teaspoon, fill the cake cases with the mixture (be sure to give them a fair amount)
  7. Put the tray in the oven for around 15 mins or until they are golden brown
  8. Take them out of the oven and place on a cooling rack
  9. Make the icing by whisking the butter and half the sugar together, once they are mixed add the rest of the sugar and a dash of milk, continue whisking
  10. Use a sharp knife to cut a upside-down, shallow cone shape out the top of the cake, cut this in half. Fill the hole in the cake with icing and then place the cut out cake on top (like wings.) Sprinkle some icing sugar on top of your cakes
