Hi my little Sausages!
Hello and I hope you are all happy, busy and safe? Ihope you enjoyed learning about the oceans and seas last week? I found out lots of facts about rock pools too and a creature called a bristle worm!
VEGGIE UPDATE . I have been working hard to remember to water my tomatoes and cucumbers. They are growing tall but no tomatoes yet!
It has been lovely to see one or two of you in school either in Educare or when dropping off brothers and sisters. I do miss your lovely faces.
I was cheered up this week when I received some letters from you! Many of you had drawn pictures and told me about some of the exciting things you have been up too! I must say you are doing a great job and learning all the time! It's so nice to hear your news and while we can't be together in the classroom, we can still keep in touch.
There is a new oracy challenge this week. This time it's for a big event across the country (maybe even the world). It is a festival of Speech to celebrate children's voices! The task is to film yourself presenting your own thoughts on lockdown - the title is: What you have learned in Lockdown. You can write a poem, a story, a diary entry or a speech all about you and what you have found out! It sounds very exciting. If you want to take part get someone to film you, send it in an e-mail to school and we will submit it to the Festival of Speech! This will be on facebook and twitter so your grown ups need to say it's ok. You can take a sneaky peek at what some of the other children across Plymouth have had to say! I will put a link in for you to look at. (Your grown up will have to help). I know you are Oracy experts and brilliant at sharing your ideas, you will be awesome at this task!
Miss you lots like stinky grots.
Be amazing my smart sausages.
