Celebrating Home Learning

Dylan enjoyed exploring different materials for the insulator and conductor experiments.
Paul completed the science experiment and shared his table of results, as well as described the properties of different materials. He also shared some examples of the maths work he has been working hard on.
Gyan has been busy sketching. He has enjoyed sketching a range of things, especially Pokemon characters!
Here are pictures of Balazs preparing “túrós rétes” aka strudel filled with curd cheese. It is a typical Hungarian and Austrian sweet pastry. He has also been studying German with his Grandpa over Skype 3 times a week and can now speak, sing and understand a little bit of German. Great work Balazs!
Jake enjoyed participating in the virtual sports day. Jake’s favourite event was the Target Throw as he used jumpers and a bin, for the furthest target, and he was so excited as he kept getting it in the bin.  Great effort Jake!
Frank enjoyed writing a story about a boy getting lost in a mysterious forest . Very descriptive and a great range of punctuation. Well written Frank!
Violette had fun writing a chapter for Charlie and the Chocolate Factory about an extra child (Billy Bragger); who boasts about himself and eats loads of sweets with tonnes of sugar inside them. Well written Violette.
George started some of the virtual sports day activities and enjoyed making some obscure shapes to calculate the perimeter of. Well done George!
Eric wrote a story about a person who travels to a village and has to help them! He’s also been taking great care of the apple tree behind him. The apples are growing well.
Chloe wrote a chapter called ‘Everything is edible’ and the description is fantastic. She has used a range of expanded noun phrases and captured her audience with various fonts. Well done Chloe!
Dailin enjoyed making the rubber band cannon with his dad and hitting bottles. He also visited Beddington Park and caught 20 small fish. He released them at the end of the day but had a great time fishing for them.
Mayeda was proud of the chapter she wrote and typed up which she named ‘The Arrival’. Great use of speech and a great introduction to a story. You have left the reader wanting more, well done.

Thank you for sharing all the wonderful things that you have been getting up to. I really enjoyed receiving all the messages and getting to see how hard you are continuing to work. Well done to you all!

Wishing you all a lovely weekend. Happy Father’s Day to all the dads! Mrs Nunn
