Down on the farm

Good afternoon children

We hope you enjoyed watching some of the fantastic videos from the BBC iPlayer yesterday and found out lots about farms that you didn’t already know!! Did you have lots of questions that were answered?

Today, we would like you to make a list of what animals you might find on a farm.  Can you find pictures of them or draw them?  Then, when you have done that, can you find out what their young (their babies) are called?  For example a sheep’s young (it’s baby) is called a lamb.  What other animals might be on the farm?

You could make a fun poster, demonstrating all of your knowledge that you find out!

We can’t wait to see your work 🙂


VE Day 8th May 2020🎈🎉🎊

On 8th May 2020 it will be 75 years since Prime Minister,Winston Churchill, made an announcement at 3pm that the war had come to an end. The guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe. Years of carnage and destruction had come to an end and millions of people took to the streets to celebrate peace, mourn their loved – ones and to hope for the future. ❤️❤️

We think it would be amazing to celebrate this day by taking part in activities or having a party in our house, garden or yard 🎉 This week, I will be posting activities every afternoon on Receptions blog (for all ages to join in) different activities each day to prepare for the celebrations on Friday 🎊



Daily exercise and PE with Joe Wicks

Hi Children,

What a beautiful day it is today! Are you managing to do your daily miles whilst you are at home? We hope so! As we know exercise is very important to keep us physically healthy but also is a great way to keep our minds healthy too!

A few weeks ago we posted on our school twitter page the links to these fabulous Joe Wicks, daily PE sessions. They start at 9 am every day and last for roughly 30 minutes (half an hour). I was just wondering if any of you had managed to have a go at some of these at home? I know that myself, Miss Varley and Miss Pugh have been doing them and they are really fun! 

Here is the link for you to use, to have a go at them. You could even go back and have a go at some of the previous ones.

I thought it would be nice if you could comment below, after you have completed one, and let each other know what you thought of them or which parts you found easy or difficult. Try to encourage your family to join in too!

If there are other ways you have been exercising whilst at home, then please share these ideas with us. Here are some of the ideas’ Miss Moores thought of;

  • Walking
  • Jogging
  • Skipping
  • Bouncing a ball
  • Cycling
  • Dancing
  • Gardening

So don’t forget the PE sessions are on every day (Monday to Friday) at 9.00 am.

Good luck and we look forward to hearing how you are getting on and what exercise you are doing whilst at home.

The year 5 and 6 team

An extract from Timmy’s Dillema by Ahmed

Dear Diary,
Today has been a day of decisions. And this wasn’t a day of decisions like Twix or Snickers (by the way diary that is hard because they’re my favourites ) but anyways it was about a million times harder than that. (actually it might have gone past infinity and beyond!)Now I am going to tell you all about it.

It all started when my friends Cupa and Mario sent me this letter.
Hey Timmy meet me at Luigi’s newsagents at ten o’ clock sharp. We’ll see you there . So about one hour later I went of to the newsagents. As soon as I got there I saw Cupa at the door. ” Hey dude. What’s up.” Said Cupa Hey Timmy take this gas mask and this canister and meet me in the back streets at the rear. ” He said in the freakiest imitation of our gang leader Mario. Immediately after I got into the back streets I got a phone from Deen. He rang up to see if I could go over to his house.” come on. Your meant to be one of us your a gangsta. Your in the group.” He barked “Your not a gangsta if you don’t do this.” “What am I then ?” I barked back. “Mother chicken. Mother chicken” He said whilst imitating one.


An extract from a diary dilemma by Yahya

It started when, this boy called Billy Midas he was always a loser then he saved a tiny being called the Chimichanga he got rewarded a gold maker . Billy Midas lost his cat because he accidentally  put  a magic pillow on his cupboard . Then his cat Goji slept on it then it turned to gold . Then when he came back from  school he called the cat but no reply he called again no reply he went upstairs and he was shocked to see that his cat had turned  to gold. Then he called this tiny being called the Chimichanga he had two decisions one to get the cat back or keep the gold maker . In place of a living purring cat there was nothing but a metal frozen cat statue . If he chooses to keep Goji it will reverse the  power of the gold maker or if he chooses to keep the gold maker then Goji will remain as a statue forever. In my story I have choose to keep the gold maker because you can by another cat  if you have a lot of gold and if you kept Goji you will be a loser again  and everyone would start to bully you .



The pop star style by Harmain and Darya

Today we have been learning about how to be a pop star the first thing you should do is see if that the prop is good enough try to not to mumble and talk a lot. You  should experiment with different style ‘s you can choose a different pop star to copy and  give old cloths make over. Also if  you like to wear light cloths like the beach then you can wear it and if you want to dark cloths like the forest then you can you can wear any cloths you want you don’t have to judge others of what there wearing and always be creative in your own ways and don’t judge a book by its cover and be happy with what you are wearing don’t be jealous with other people’s styles because you can make better styles  such as diamond dress for girls and  a t-shirt with a pants for boys and you can always wear what you want to wear. Do you want to be a pop star?
