Happy Half Term!

Hi everyone. Thank you all for working so hard at home - it is wonderful to receive all your fabulous work and I especially love the photos and seeing what you are up to. It is half term this week and so there will be no home learning set.I have left last week's tasks up in case some of you didn't manage them and wanted to catch up. It would be great if you could continue reading daily. If you did not manage to do the AR STAR Reading Test, could you please try and do it over half term- the ones who sat it all improved their levels- well done!

I am in school on Wednesday and Thursday and so will try to phone you all at some point. 

Please enjoy looking at all the photos on the page and look at the Gallery which now has the individual videos on also.

Anya has had a very busy week! She has researched about Bernard Lovell and Elizabeth Moreton- two of the colleges at Alsager School are named after them. She has completed co-ordinates work in Geography and created a super poem which is below. Anya has enjoyed our art work, working in the style of Matisse, and her Mum and Dad even joined in. Everybody seems to be working hard except for the dogs!

            

 

As this is Mental Awareness Week and the theme is kindness, I thought it might be nice to mention what some of our children have been doing.Wilbur and Woody( Mrs Dyde's Class) have been part of the Alsager Coronavirus Support Group with their Mum and have visited the vulnerable people to collect their shopping lists, been to Asda, carefully picked the shopping (checking the prices to get them the cheaper options and checking the sell by dates) and then taken the shopping to each house. They have  talked to the people to make sure that they do not feel lonely. This week, they have had a thank you from Cheshire East Council- well done Wilbur, Woody and Mum!

 

We used Jenny Joseph's poem 'Warning' as a stimulus to write our own poem about all the things that we would like to get up to when we are old. Albert, Charlie C ,Wilbur and Anya intend to get up to some very daring things!

    

    

Lewis created a great poem about the things that he would love to get up to when he is old. He also produced a  great picture in the style of Matisse.

     

Martha, her dad, sister and her dog enjoyed a walk from Alsager to the Wedgwood Monument near Talke. It is amazing what we have on our doorstep! Check out Martha playing the clarinet and the piano on our class gallery page. Click on Gallery at the bottom of the page. You can also see all the photos of the class working at home.

      

 

Stan has been doing what Stan loves doing - MATHS!

     

 

Albert and Anya produced some fab Mehndi Hand Art.

  

Letter to a Key Worker Response.

Harry wrote his letter to a keyworker to an old school friend of his mum, who is a nurse called Claire.She is usually a children’s nurse but the wards that she usually works on were converted to be Covid-19 wards and she has been working very hard in these wards ever since. She was really grateful to receive the letter and said it made her day and she shed a little tear too! She sent Harry the photos of her below-one of her how she normally looks and another fully covered with the PPE she has to wear on every shift she works! 

       

 

 

Prepare to be Scared!

Riley, Albert, Issy, Charlie C, Anya,Harry Charlie C F and Emily W really enjoyed the writing task this week - a ghost story. Read on if you dare!

     

        

  

               

       

Emily has been busy preparing a sweet hamper for her brother Luke's birthday.Happy Birthday Luke! She has also been busy making delicious custard cream biscuits- I would love one with a cup of tea. She also made some banana cake. Her dog Evie has been helping- probably to eat it!

          

 

For Geography, Anya, Charlie and Riley labelled the British Isles and marked on places special to them.

    

Anya enjoyed the science investigation this week- testing what was soluble and insoluble. She also made some biscuits for the dog- they look good enough for me to eat!

        

 

VE CELEBRATIONS

Albert's street had a socially distanced VE street party.They had  afternoon tea with homemade lemonade and the family played darts with their neighbours-two separate dart boards were used 2m apart.They  played bingo with the surrounding neighbours 2m part and they topped it all off with a BBQ where Albert toasted marshmallows.

                                                    

Have a look at what we have been making to celebrate VE Day.

Albert, Anya and Leighton created some great designs for VE Day teacups.

     

 

Emily wrote an invitation for her mum to attend a VE Party. If it wasn't for lock down, I would be trying to gatecrash!

 

Leighton researched Henry Royce - one of the colleges at Alsager School is named after him.

Issy has been having fun in the sun.

    

 

Albert wrote a letter to Colonel Tom which he is posting. Another task set was to write to a key worker- Albert wrote to the bin men- he is going to leave it for them next time they are on their round- I am sure it will make their day!

    

 

 

Riley wrote an amazing letter to Colonel Tom- Riley said that his arm ached with all the writing. It is definitely a letter to be proud of!

 

   

Look at Milly and her family all hard at work home learning.

 

Issy made a birthday cake for William and George's birthday- see the video at the bottom of the page.She also made the most delicious Oreo milkshake- I haven't dared to show my boys as they would be so jealous.

 

Charlie C looks like he had great fun creating and attempting his obstacle course.

                

 

Charlie wrote his letter to Colonel Tom and sent me a copy. He is posting the letter to Colonel Tom. 

    

 

Who's the new teacher Riley?

Riley had some help from Pawfessor Roo with his maths today.

 

 Today, for our art lesson, we learned about Cubism and the art of Pablo Picasso and George Braque.The task was to draw two self portraits- one from the front and one from the side- and then cut them up and re-arrange the pieces to make a new face.After that, you needed to add some big flat areas of colour. Emily W said that the task was fun. Take a look at what she created.

   

Albert attempted the Cubist self- portrait art work too.

     

Harry wasn't too sure about doing the art work, but actually enjoyed doing it in the end. 

Harry's little brother Alfie just wants to be like his big brother- here he is doing some home learning like big bruv.

 

Setting Description

Using an extract from Berlei Doherty's, The Girl on Silver Lake, we wrote a setting description choosing a section of a picture from the book You Choose by Pippa Goodheart and Nick Sharratt.Have a read of what Harry P, Anya and Charlie C came up with.

    

Here's Harry!

Harry enjoyed making a reading den to read in. He has been working out with Joe Wicks. Looks like you needed a lie down after Harry! Harry is looking very professional in the kitchen - he must have learned some skills playing the baker in Cinderella Rockerfella! 

       

A family working hard together at home.

 

Emily W has made a fab reading den Look at her brother, Ben,trying to photo bomb the picture! 

 

Emily W has been working so hard at home- take a look at her lovely work.

    

 

Anya did some brilliant research about Captain Tom.

Anya's dogs have a message for you.

  

It was Oscar's birthday last week - Happy Belated Birthday Oscar! You can bring in your lollies when we return to school.

Charlie enjoyed a walk along the canal and enjoyed reading in his garden.

  

 

A really bad thing about the lockdown for the teachers is when the pupils do some fabulous baking and they can't bring it in to school for the teachers to taste. Nevaeh's mum says that her baking is GOOD. It certainly looks DELICIOUS! What do you think? I could just fancy a piece of that cake with a nice cup of tea.

     

        

Vicky went for a bike ride. Sorry Vicky, school's still not open.

What talents we have in our class!

Anya has enjoyed her art work this week. Look at Albert showing off his shooting skills.Wow Vicky ! Look at you - you look an expert with that sewing machine!

         

You can't help but feel Spring like when you look at Ella's and Wilbur's  Spring pictures.

   

 

Charlie C F has been very busy learning at home.

     

    

 

Charlie C has been busy writing his poem and doing some exercise. I wonder how far he ran?

    

 

Blooming Blossoms

Look at the beautiful Spring art work produced by Lewis J, Vicky, Harry D and Albert. Albert created a lawn sized Spring picture and he went on a walk and photographed blossom on the trees.

      

    

 

Brothers working hard!

 Wilbur and Woody did the science investigation. I bet that they enjoyed doing it together. They must have learned something -look at the computer screen - they got all the answers correct. Well done boys!                                                                                                                   

                                         

 

Saint George's Day research by Elsie and Emily H. Anya drew a super picture of the dragon. Well done girls!           

                               

                             

Spring is in the Air

Just take a look at these fabulous poems created by Riley, Anya,Ella, Elsie,Emily H,Vicky,Isabelle C and Harry D. They are a pleasure to read and are all decorated so well. I have loved receiving these poems and I am so glad that you all enjoyed writing them!

 

           

 

             

        

           

Martha went on a Spring walk in preparation for writing her Spring poem. She says that instead of looking at pictures of spring that I had given you, she decided to go on a walk through a path near to her house. She said that she saw several things,including Mr Bundy in his front garden( I hope he had got his suncream on!). Martha said that she saw lots of butterflies, blossoms and even badger tracks and homes.  Here are some of the photos she took.

     

Anya did the science investigation yesterday using ice pops as there were no ice cubes in their freezer(I don't know about you but I'd much prefer to eat an ice pop than use it in an experiment!).Anya predicted that wool would be the best insulator but found that kitchen roll was the best and the wool the worst. It was only later that they found out that one of their mugs/containers had just been taken out of the dishwasher so was probably hot when the ice went in. So Anya's mum reports that they  got strange results but learnt a lot about fair testing! The Donald Duck cake was Anya's
