Hello Brancaster – it’s Friday! I think we can all agree that this week has been an interesting one for us all! At the same time, I have been so happy that I have such a lovely bunch of children in my class and I can definitely say that I am proud of you all this week!
Here is a look at what has been going on in Brancaster bubble as well as in your own bubbles at home:
Clearly, we have a lot of keen writers in Brancaster class. I have received lots of work from you all, particularly with your cold tasks, which I was amazed with! Here are some examples of your work in English:
George has been very busy this week! Here is George’s writing work:
Mia has also been busy doing lots of writing:
Ollie and Freya have also been writing their cold tasks on a warning story:
Taya has begun writing her Red Riding Hood story:
And Borislav, George and Mia have been practising their spellings this week:
In Brancaster bubble, we have also been writing our cold tasks on warning stories. Have a look at them:
Again, I am pleased with the maths work too! I’ve been told by parents that many of you have been accessing the National Oak Academy website to do your maths – well done!
Here is some of George’s working out in his maths lessons:
And here is some of Taya’s times table practise.
The children in Brancaster bubble have been busy looking at multiplying numbers by 1 and 0 and also looking at dividing by one.
I have also looked at the Tackling Tables website and I am pleased to say that my star this week is… Thomas! Great job, keep up the good work!
I am pleased with how so many of you are engaged with our new topic this half term, particularly on Education City. It is nice to see you’re all as excited as myself!
Here is some of your science work this week:
George has also been working on his definitions of programming for computing:
In Brancaster bubble, we have been looking at dragons eyes and have been carefully following some tutorial videos on how to draw an eye. We then used ‘Austin’s Butterfly’ to help us with the mindset that art isn’t always perfect the first time we try.
Have a look at this video. See if you can do it like Austin did!
Now have a look at our work:
I also received some lovely artwork too this week.
I am impressed how keen you all are in completing your Education City tasks. Here is a list of those children who completed them all – well done!
Over and Above
Last, but definitely not least, I have some children who have gone over and above this week. As we are unable to have an assembly to celebrate this, I am going to give these children an ‘Over and Above’ certificate for their learning this week. I will email your parents your certificate if you are working at home so they can print them off for you.
The children who will receive a certificate this week are:
George – for working extremely hard and completely work to a high standard
Joshua – for focussing well in all his lessons at school
Mia – for writing a beautiful poem about her dragon
Juliet – for great contributions in class discussions
Sonny – for persevering and working independently in maths
Taya T – for persevering in her learning
Again, well done to every single one of you for coming back to your learning in difficult circumstances and persevering after a tough start to 2021! Hope you all have a lovely and restful weekend (including you too parents/carers)!
