Vicky- I'm glad you liked the video. I hope you and Charlie are well. Hopefully see you soon.

Victoria Barrett(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!

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

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

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

Chloe(less than a year ago)

Morning Miss Branch, so far this week, Chloe has been trying really hard with her writing - smaller and neater! She also made some yummy jam tarts and wrote down the ingredients and how she made them. She has been completing maths worksheets with number bonds to 10 and 20. We use raisins or nuts to help us which makes her work faster so she can eat them! We have also made a rain gauge and we are going to measure later how much water fell yesterday.

Love the friends alliteration pic, may have to pinch this idea.

Miss Oram(less than a year ago)

Hi Raspberry Class! I hope that you are all well and safe at home. I have loved looking at all your photos that you have sent in -you have all been so busy which is fantastic! Missing you all-stay safe. Best wishes Miss Oram
