Our first few photos this week were sent on Friday evening. Owyn's sign for our classroom door looks fantastic and it's lovely to see him having so much fun making it! Sicily definitely has a talent for origami, those flowers in particular look very tricky but everything is absolutely beautiful ('The Girl who speaks Bear' sounds like it could be a very interesting book too).
You might already know that this Friday is VE Day - the anniversary of the official end of WWII. Sam and his family have been doing some extra work based around this very special day; they've made spitfire airplanes and have decorated at home to say thank you to all of those people who contributed to the war effort.
Our slideshow shows some beautiful artwork from Libby! Her rainbows to show her appreciation to the NHS are my favourites from her this week, but her other masterpieces are brilliant too.
Sicily combined her NHS poster with our lesson on drawing things using one point perspective, I think you will all agree that it looks fantastic! She's been very busy with a Science experiment investigating different types of rocks too, here's what she told me about it: "Yesterday, we finally got round to doing our second chocolate experiment. In this experiment we grated the chocolate into small pieces, this represented the sand and silt. Using this we formed the three different types of rocks." The ginger biscuits she baked looked delicious!
Sam has worked hard on his highly insulting limerick, I'm considering writing a revenge poem of my own. There's some good words that rhyme with 'wise'... tries, lies, despise, flies, cries, to name but a few...
You have all been so busy at home! In the slideshow above you can see that Sicily has been doing some fantastic artwork, it reminds me a lot of the marbling we used for our book corner and that you also did with Mrs A in Art. Sicily also tells me shes been baking delicious cakes over Easter, you can see her birthday cake and cookies in the slideshow but the chocolate cakes in there are Sam's! He made them all by himself and I think he has definitely inherited his mum's talent (she made the staff some lovely cakes last year). Owyn has definitely made good use of all that extra chocolate around the house over Easter! Melting it down - i wonder if that is a reversible or irreversible change - to turn it into tasty treats. It's great to see photos of you back at work after your break too, Jake looks like he is working very hard. Thank you so much for all the photos and updates so far, they always bring a smile to my face and I'm sure your friends will enjoy seeing them here too!
We have had even more photos sent in today! Maisie and Scarlett have worked really hard on their beautiful squiggle drawings, I can tell they've spent a really long time getting them perfect We've also got lots of photos of Cai hard at work and looking very professional with his saw! Remember, if you're using any tools or sharp/dangerous objects make sure you have an adult with you at all times like Cai did. I've also seen some great photos of your chocolate science investigation today and of some delicious pancakes made by Mia. I'm really pleased to see and hear how many really exciting activities you've been doing at home on top of your school work. Well done all of you!
I've added a few more photos, you can see Owyn's yummy chocolate rice crispy cakes - I especially love the extra chocolate piled on top! He's also done a fantastic squiggle picture, using those art skills he is famous for and shared his historical rune writing and time conversion work with us.
