How are you all? I’m missing seeing your smiley faces everyday and hearing about what you have all been up to.
I hope you are enjoying undertaking some of the tasks in your Home Learning Packs, I noticed that some of you have been testing your maths skills on Sumdog. Don’t worry if you haven’t done anything in your pack yet, reading, playing games, helping to make meals, tidying your bedroom and all the other things you’ll have been up to are valuable experiences too. If you are looking for things to do, below is the recipe for the pancakes you made with Mr Hunter, I know you all really enjoyed baking them!
Drop Scones (makes about 12, we used ½ the recipe):
8 ounces Self Raising Flour
4 ounces Sugar
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
2 Eggs (beaten)
Pinch of Salt
Sieve the flour, salt and baking powder. Mix in the sugar. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and enough milk to make a thick creamy batter. Beta it together well then leave it to stand for 15 minutes. Drop spoonfuls of the batter into a hot frying pan. When air bubbles start to appear on the surface of the pancake, flip it using a fish slice. Enjoy!
Lots of Love Evie wants to Miss Nicholls say hello!
We hope you are all doing well and have been keeping busy, happy and active in these rather unusual times. Hopefully some of you will have managed to complete some of the tasks set in the home learning packs. Please don’t worry if there are some things which you are unsure or confused about, all you can do is try your best. The main thing is to try and keep reading and keep listening to stories. David Walliams is reading a story every day from The Worlds Worst Children, which can be downloaded from his website. Also, there are free audio books available on Audible. Give it a go if you can.
There is also the countdown maths game website, we would love to see any of your calculations when we return to school!! Pictures, cartoons and imaginative stories are all good fun activities too.
Joe Wicks is streaming fitness classes on his youtube channel “The Body Coach”. It is important to have fun and interactive PE sessions at home to help you feel positive and energised. It is great fun (and it gives you a break from screens!)
Finally, keep being brilliant P5s, be really helpful around the house and keep being kind to brothers and sisters!
Keep happy, stay well and don’t worry. Things will return to normal eventually.
How is everyone? It feels a bit strange not being with you all at the moment. It will take us all time to adjust to this new way of learning and keeping in touch! We are almost at the end of our first week of home learning now and we are all very interested in what you have been up to!
Have you been helping to tidy up toys around the house? Have you been reading stories or listening to stories online? Have you managed to get some fresh air? Have you helped to look after a pet? Have you been doing exercise with The Body Coach in the morning? Have you been kind to someone in your family?
We have so many questions for you but most importantly – are you happy, safe and healthy? We hope everyone is keeping well.
If you have anything you would like to share with us – photos, drawings, videos… we would love to hear from you on our Facebook page. It’s important for us all to stay connected!
