Tuesday 31st March with Miss Capewell & Miss Ripley

Today in KS2, we wrote letters of gratitude to key workers in Huddersfield thanking them for everything that they have done and are doing for us. This made us feel incredibly grateful for everything that people are doing to keep us safe. 

We also visited Miss Capewell's smoothie making shop, picking our fruit and making our own smoothies!

Monday 30th March

Mrs Walker & Mrs Mannifield enjoyed spending the day at school with some of our KS2 children.

We kept fit with Joe Wicks, completed some of our Maths and English tasks.  In science, we made soda bread and learnt how some of the  the ingredients react with each other to create carbon dioxide which made the bread rise. We also made some carrot and coriander soup to have with the bread. 

In the afternoon, we enjoyed art where we created a series of colourful prints using simple designs on polystyrene tiles.

Here's the learning some of us have done at school this week :) 

Thursday 26th March with Miss Capewell, Mrs Carr, Miss Taaffe, Miss Normington and Miss Smith 

Today in school we worked extremely hard during our Joe Wicks work out (our legs are still aching today), before moving onto completing our Maths work. In the afternoon, we made the most of the glorious sunshine and read outside in the Quad, before sketching our own Springtime flowers and animals and painting them with vibrant watercolours. We can't wait to collage these together to make a beautiful Spring time poster!

Wednesday 25th March with Miss Donnelly, Mrs Elliot, Mrs Smith, and Mrs Robinson

Today we completed a Joe Wicks work out, made lots of gooey slime (we chose our own colours and scents), completed some phonics and maths work, painted a huge rainbow for the front of school, used cling film and paint to create some beautiful art work, went on a Easter egg hunt, and spent lots of time in the sunshine. We had lots of fun and kept very busy!
