Week 5: 29th June

Our second group have been finishing our Broads posters which we’ve designed to entice visitors to the area.


As as part of our collective worship, we wrote KINDNESS poems in our 10 minute challenge. They really sum up what kindness is like and how it makes us feel.

Our second week back in school and we’ve started writing a suspense piece set around Lochness. We watched Water Horse as inspiration, then planned our own piece of writing. We went outside to tell our stories to a partner but it was a little windy! We’ve also been doing lots of work on graphs and statistics, and been practising hard for sports day.

Week 4: 22nd June

We have had lots of fun being back in school. It has been great to see everyone and those smiling faces!

We talked about our lockdown experiences, done some work on prepositions using plastic animals and made advertising brochures for the Lake District and The Norfolk Broads.

Well done Owls on another super week of learning. I am super impressed with your attitude and commitment to your school work, only a couple of weeks until half term, so keep it up. Please remember to say a big thank you to the adults who have helped you over the weeks – this is not an easy time for anyone, and many are trying to juggle all manor of things, as well as your school work, so remember to do something nice for them, just like Kensuke with Michael.

Phew what a busy week we’ve had!!
