Brancaster Blog!

Hi Brancaster Class


I hope you have all had a lovely week and have managed to enjoy the glorious weather! I have been kept busy this week answering your emails and looking through your work. I have still managed to get out running and have seen some amazing wildlife in the fields near to where I live. I have also taken part in a virtual wall sit challenge – I had to complete different sets of wall sits each day, they were hard but I persevered! I am hoping they will make me fitter and stronger.

I have seen some fantastic work linked to our topic on the Romans already this week. Many of you have been thinking about what makes a good Roman soldier and whether or not you would have what it takes to succeed in the Roman Army! I think that lots of you would make good Roman soldiers as you are a determined bunch and you never give up!

I enjoyed reading Andrew’s thoughts on the Roman Soldiers:

I have also enjoyed seeing your Roman Shields – I can see that you have put a lot of thought and effort into making them, well done!

Logan has been exploring the city of Rome using virtual city tours on the internet. Logan’s mum told me that Logan would like to go and visit Rome so he could see everything in person. I suggested that he should try to persuade Mrs Barrett to let us go on a school trip to Rome (I’m not sure we would be allowed as it’s a bit far). Logan wrote a brilliant letter, I wonder what Mrs Barrett will say.

I have also enjoyed reading your setting ideas and descriptions for our suspense stories. I am really proud of Jack’s description – he thought carefully about his punctuation and word choices, well done Jack.

Ema has also kept me updated with her work! Both Ema and Jack have used their Google Drive accounts to let me know what they’ve been doing at home, remember you can still access these at home and creating a Google presentation or Google document is a great way of sharing your work. If you need your login details then email me and I will see if I can find them for you.


I was really pleased to hear from Miss Langham this morning who kindly sent me a certificate for Alfie! He’s continued his Lexia work at home and has passed Level 11! Well done Alfie! Keep up the hard work.

Well done to all of you who have completed the Education City activities this week, Miss Shaw was pleased to see that Freya, Jamie, Jack, Logan and Andreas had all had a go at the science activities too! Well done to all of you.


Tomorrow is VE day and technically a bank holiday but if you would like to find out more about VE Day than make sure you look at the blog on our class page. Mr Sellers has found lots of activities for you to try, including a wordsearch created by Joseph! Well done Joseph, I will be giving it a go myself tomorrow.



Keep safe and well and I hope to see you all soon (I am missing you all).

Mrs Emery
