Connected Curriulum

Date: 21st Apr 2020 @ 2:21pm

Well  we hope you all had a good guess at what the new Connected curriculum topic will be. Congratualtions, If you guessed that the new topic is going to be about growing-linked to plants.

I looked in the garden and I noticed that plants were growing, and leaves  and flowers were on the trees.



So many changes have happened over the past 4 weeks and the seasons have definetly changed!

This week we want you to sketch and write about things that you can see in the garden that tell you that Spring is here.  Please send your artwork to us and we will celebrate it on the class blogs.

Well I was up and ready to go this morning. I knew I needed to do a little bit of exercise to get my brain working. I have to say I was glad of the windy breeze  today because I was getting very hot and sweaty and I definately needed to cool down. 


Then as part of the reading challenge I read a book in the garden!

Then I meditated for 5 minutes to help me focus on the work I needed to do next.

Wellbeing challenge number 7

Date: 21st Apr 2020 @ 10:32am

Hello and welcome back after the Easter holidays, I hope everyone had a good Easter! My husband bought me a delicious unicorn Easter Egg although I haven't finished it yet!

Today's wellbeing challenge is to design your own Happy Place. Here is an online game where you can build your own virtual happy place by just dragging and dropping objects into your room.

You even get to choose your own wallpaper! Or if you don't fancy that, why not draw and colour a picture of your happy place? Or you could even do both!

Here's a picture of the room that I built, I wish could build a real room like it!

Please send any pictures of your happy place rooms to your home learning e-mail addresses, I'd love to see them.

The outrageous bike!

by Miss Riley

This is for you, I hope you’re a good rider. It’s a shiny bright blue bike! Let’s play!

I am a speedy super bike and I live in Manchester. Where I live the building are gigantic and there are hundreds of busy people! I zoom in and out and when people want to pass I whizz around them!

Nothing gets in my way! I flip and I twirl and I zoom so fast! But oh no! What’s this? It’s a ramp! AHHHHHH I’m flyyyyyingggg! SMASH!


I’ll help you said a kind and friendly scooter. I will pick you up and brush you off! Now you are nice and clean!

I will never ever zoom around again! Now I am a sloowwww and shiny bike.

If you need to watch Naughty bus again to get some ideas here’s the video…
