On Thursday 29th April Years 5 and 6 will be taking part in an online safety workshop with Jonathan Taylor. This will be an extremely important sessions in which they will cover topics such as online identity, web cam usage, bullying but also how the internet can give the children lots of fun as well. 

In the afternoon Jon will hold a zoom session for parents from 1.30-2.20. This session will cover topics such as the current dangers, twitch, periscope etc., positive posting digital tattoo, working with the school.  If, like me, you aren't sure what they are make sure you go to the workshop so you understand what your children might be using! He will also talk about Azoomee an online app that could help you at home as you navigate this tricky IT world as a family. 

Karen will send out  zoom log in details on the day.

Last Day of Home Learning!

Congratulations to you all, this is the last day of home learning and we will be back in school on Monday morning! I can’t wait to see you all and I know that you are all excited about seeing your friends again. I have loved all the photos, messages and waves you have given me during this time. Have a great last day and I will see you all on Monday!

PS: give you adults at home a massive hug for all they have done for you!

World Book Day!

I am loving all the pictures of you dressed up for World Book Day! Keep sending them in.

Parents thank you for reminding me of other stories I read as a child as well. I had completely forgotten about Mrs Pepperpot! 

Can you spot the teachers? Some are dressed up and others are reading in unusual places! 

Spot the picture that was taken in the days we could all go out! Dreaming of those days!!

World Book Day!

How many animals went into the ark?

Thank you for all your answers last week to this question. I loved the different ways in which you worked it out!

Simra, I love that you found 10 different combinations of animals that could go into the ark, great use of multiplication! Miss Marshall will be proud.

Jack, what a great use of IT skills to present your work. You set it out very systematically, Miss Hart and I love that! I’m not sure I would want to be on the ark with 100 snails!

Amelia, great use of your farm animals at home to show how you solved the problem. 

Nikolai, what fantastic answers to the question if 12 feet went into the ark? I love the way you have used pictures and have clearly written your number sentences! 

 

A school of bakers! 

I have loved seeing so many of your pictures since you have been learning from home but there has been one familiar theme...baking! It’s a good job I can’t put weight on just from looking at your creations. We definitely have some contenders for the Great British Bake Off, maybe you could try Junior Bake Off. 

Take a look at the talent we have at Westcourt!

Friday Assembly

Tessa today has summed up all our feelings, we are all missing each other. Remember we might be apart at this time but we are all still one community at Westcourt!

James, Jessica, Katelyn, Tessa and Jack have taken their dots for a walk!

Sebastian I love your monster looking for his toe!

Let's get arty!

Paul Klee

Artist Paul Klee said ‘a line is a dot that went for a walk’. This is often what happens with a doodle…you don’t plan to draw, your pencil just seems to wander off across the paper. This drawing is made from an almost unbroken line that makes a series of round-cornered boxes. The artist then added stick legs and eyes to make the shapes into a quirky character.

Why not have a go at taking a dot for a walk? Don’t plan your picture. Just let your pencil wander randomly. See what happens when you add eyes, arms and legs to your doodle.

 

Have a look at the link below.

Fantastic learning from the Dempster boys!
Harry wrote his first poem and made a recording of it for me to watch. It was brilliant! He had to draw himself as a baby surrounded by his favourite toys. He also drew kaleidoscope images based around the creation, dangers and luxuries of life and has also been learning how to subtract fractions. 
Freddie wrote his very first book review, has met his AR target twice and has been completing 6-8 pages of work everyday. 

keep up this amazing learning, we are all so proud of you!

Cooking at home!

 Looked at this coconut cake baked with mummy. They talked about what ingredients were needed and what amounts. Eggs were cracked and they used an egg separator as they only needed the whites. It was mixed and flattened in a pan (it looked a bit like porridge from our goldilocks story). When it was cooked they put the frosting on top. It looks amazing! 

Work of the Week Assembly

Look at our pets!

Look at these beautiful pets.

Amelia and Jack have two cats, one is called Dash with the tash! 

Freya has a gorgeous dog called Rosie.

Cameron and Sofia grandparents have a cat called Sybil!

Katelyn, Jessica and James have two cats called Ben and Jones. Ben is the fluffy one on the left and Jones is on the right. Ben is super laid back and meows when he wants food or to go outside  Jones is frightened of everything and runs away all the time. They love sitting together cuddling. 
Look at Bruno the German shepherd and Denzil the pony. 

Georgia has a pet cat called Lola and lots of fish!

 

Friday Assembly

Do you know all the planet names in order like Katelyn?

Loving this work by Sienna!

Hello from giraffe!

Jack has been practising his drawing, amazing!

The weekend!

 

I love hearing about your weekend and what you have been up to!

 

Evie and Teddy have been keeping fit by going out on bike rides. They have also been exploring the woods as a family which is great fun! 

 

Harriet has been horse riding, learning to thread the needle, around the world and trotting over poles! I loved the videos, they were amazing. What a great skill to learn!

 

Harry and his dad are taking part in the couch to 5K and they went out running this morning at 7am! Mum and Freddie had a great time with Joe Wicks! 

I loved hearing that both boys have been busy working through their learning packs and activities on their class web page. They also watched the new BBC bitesize programmes that launched today on CBBC. Your teachers are going to link some of your learning to this but do check it out at 

https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/group/p093cv85
