The remote learning tasks for this week look great. I think Edward will enjoy a facetime call to his grandparents to talk about toys.

Leah clarke(a couple of months ago)

The nativity was lovely ! Thank you for posting ! Well Done everyone

Miss Branch(less than a year ago)

Mason- I'm looking forward to hearing about your science project. Fantastic job with fast maths. Keep up the great work!

Mason T(less than a year ago)

Hi Miss Branch hope everyone is well. Mason is still working through our key stage 1 work books. We have done English today, we are still wait to see how our last science project pans out, we learnt about plants and what leaves and sunlight do, we have chosen 3 plants in the garden and covered half a leaf on each with tin foil and secured with a paper clip and on the 18th it will be two weeks so we can take them off and see! Mason was too clever with fast maths l5. He noticed the pattern on the second lot of sums so did it fast 1min 55secs first time, level 4 was tricky for him, took a couple of attempts but got it in just over 6 mins, we are yet to look at level 6. Stay safe everyone

Miss Branch(less than a year ago)

Vanessa and Ava- all done for you. Keep up the great work Ava!

Miss Branch(less than a year ago)

Chloe- well done for working on your writing, it sounds like you're doing a great job. Good job with your maths, it's always a bonus when you can eat the resources at the end! I look forward to hearing about how much rain you collect in your rain gauge. Have a great weekend.

Vanessa(less than a year ago)

Morning Miss Branch. Hope you are well. Please could Ava have some more mathletics (bonds to 10 & 20 still need practice and arrays). She's loving mathletics & earning coins rather than any work I'm asking her to do. More books on bug club too please if possible. Thanks, Vanessa
