Light and Shadows

Last week's activity for Art was to make Shadow puppets. With all the nice weather we had, there were shadows everywhere but this is a wonderful puppet theatre that could be made at home to entertain all the family!

Nature All Around

I hope you’re all getting out and about, having fun and getting up close with nature! With all the walking everyone is doing these days, it’s a great opportunity for learning more about the world around us. On one of my walks this week, I found this nest on the road, it must have fallen from a nearby tree. It’s small, warm and cosy, made from hay, soft feathers and horse hair! I’m sure the little birds that hatched have learned how to fly and are off exploring the hedges and trees, in search of friends and fun!

Design an Ice-cream!

One of Room 12's tasks last week was to design an ice-cream, yum! Well, I definitely think I'd be happy with this ice-cream with all the beautiful weather over the Bank Holiday weekend!

A message from Wendy!

Hi girls,

I’ve just been hearing from Ms. Meehan about the fantastic work that all of you have been doing at home to keep yourselves busy during the school closure. I am delighted to hear that you are all doing so well. I’ve been checking out our school blog too and well done to the girls on the wonderful pieces of art you created, I can see lots of hard work went into your pieces.

I’ve been busy too helping my daughter Emily with her school work, making a rockery in our garden and walking our dog Georgie, which takes a very long time as he likes to sniff everything along the way AND sits down a lot to have lots of rests. I wonder if our Mung Bean experiments are like giant beanstalks now it’s that long since we last seen them. Ha-Ha!

Keep going with the great work girls and remember to have lots of outdoor fun too.

Hope to see you all soon.  Stay safe and take care. Wendy

A message from Lorraine!

Hi ladies,

I’m so happy to say “hello!” I have missed you all so, so much!  

I hope you are all keeping well, learning lots and helping out at home. You were all so good at being responsible in the classroom that I’m sure you are being great girls at home.

Time is going by so fast, it is hard being away from school but I have been hearing from teacher that you are all trying your best and that is so important. I have seen some lovely art on Facebook and on our blog! Well done!

I have been busy since school closed. I have been out in my garden a lot, we have been so lucky with the lovely weather! I have been walking a lot too and trying to keep my mind on all the positive things that are happening around us.

I am looking forward to seeing you all again as soon as it is safe to be back in school. Keep busy, keep having fun and keep safe!
