Welcome to Silver Birch's school closure page!
Please send me photos of your work or activities you are doing, together with photos of your pets to the class email. I promise I will reply as soon as possible. I am missing all your smiley faces and all the fun we have, so please get in touch.
Thursday 2nd April
Good morning. Well it is really good to see the sun out today, always makes us feel a bit better.
Did anyone play any April fools jokes yesterday? I had one played on me... someone told me that there was going to be a new flavour of squash drink. Instead of fruit, it was going to be vegetable! Unfortunately I believed it.. oops.
Thank you to all the people who have sent me their wonderings about the Rainforest. It has been great to get so many responses with some great questions. Please get them in by tomorrow afternoon.
I am loving all the wonderful photos that you are sending me. It is a brilliant way to keep in touch with the class and super to see how you are all keeping busy. Callum sent in this great photo of him reading in a tree, somewhere peaceful to read his book. It made me wonder if anyone has a special place where they like to go to read their book in peace? If you do, send in your photo.
Archie has been helping on his families allotment. I am very jealous of this, because I have only a small space to grow vegetables. I am really looking forward to seeing how the allotment progresses over the next few weeks and months.
Chloe's Roman shield is fabulous. Really colourful. How many of you have also made shields? Are your designs very different to Chloes? Keep the photos coming and as long as your parents agree, I will post them here on our page.
Have a good day and I look forward to hearing from you. I am going to take Meg out in the sunshine shortly (after her mid-morning nap)
Wednesday 1st April
Good morning everyone. How are you all this morning? Thank you to everyone who has sent me a photo of their rainbows, they are fabulous. I am sending them to Mrs Eldon and you will see them all going up on the website. Thank you also for all the great work and photographs you are sending to me. I read all the work and will reply to you.
Yesterday I added some maths work on multiplication and division from Colin and Coco (CanDoMaths). It all follows on from the work we were doing in class. To help you there are some videos on the CanDoMaths YouTube site, specifically for this work. I have written a letter to your parents, on this page, which gives them the link to get to the videos. I know the videos will help you and your parents. Let me know how you get on with the work.
Yesterday Annabelle sent me a photo from her new house. I will attach it, so we can all say hi to her and her family in their new home.
Have a good day and stay safe,
Tuesday 31st March
Good morning! How is everyone? Have you done some exercise this morning? I have been out for a run and enjoyed the fresh air.
Today I have uploaded a power point about our new topic for the summer term on Rainforests. I am really looking forward to reading your questions about the Rainforest and remember, they have to be in by this Friday, the 3rd April.
Thank you to those people who have been sending me their work, Thomas S, Callum, Alfie C, Alex H, Harvey and Ben H. I was very jealous of the wonderful chocolate cake that Thomas and his brother Noah had made and I loved the photos of Harvey and Alfie's dogs. I have also been impressed by the work you have all done and showed it to Mrs Scutt when I was in school. If you have not sent me some of what you have done, please do. I notice that not many of you are doing the tasks from MyMaths, SPag.com or PurpleMash. If you need any help, just ask.
I checked on our jam jars yesterday and found that an animal has been and eaten most of the plants that we left outside! The ones in the classroom are still growing. Have you planted any seeds at home? If you have, send me some photos.
Have a great day everyone and remember, if you need any help, just send me an email.
Monday 30th March
Good morning Silver Birch Class,
How was your weekend? Did you go out for a walk? I went for a walk and it was so windy that it almost blew my hat off!
I am in school today and just completed the workout with Joe Wicks! Have any of you tried this. I saw a great photo of Harvey joining in.
What other things have you been doing to keep busy? I hope you have all been helping Mum and Dad around the house.
Thank you for all the work you have been sending in, I really enjoy seeing what you have been doing. I like the different things you have been doing but remember there are a lot of activities for you to complete on the class page. Also, don't forget PurpleMash, MyMaths and SPaG.com. If you do not have your passwords then just send me an email to ask for it.
Have a great day and I look forward to hearing from you,
