Emily W loved writing her sea creature poem based on Commotion in the Ocean!

Hi hope you are well? Here’s some photos attached of Anna’s map of the world, some flags and some pictures and facts about penguins.

Joey and his sister painted rainbows for the NHS to display on the windows. He then let off some steam on his daily exercise using his scooter. He created an acrostic poem after listening to Mrs Rothwell’s rendition of Commotion in the Ocean. He is getting better at "nearly beating" daddy at dominoes! Miss you all. x

Freya is having great fun with her Under the Sea project- getting creative (and getting paint everywhere)! She tried a great activity with kitchen roll and coloured pens - cut out a rainbow shape, dip the ends in water and the colours move up the paper making a rainbow!

Today, Emily listened to Mrs Rothwell read ‘Commotion in the Ocean’ on the school website. She drew an angelfish as her favourite animal and looked up some information about it in some reference books. Emily decided to dress as the Little Mermaid and danced to ‘Under the Sea’ and some more calypso style music in keeping with the theme!
Emily enjoyed reading the first half of the book herself yesterday evening and is going to finish it at bedtime.
We are really enjoying the oceans theme!  Thank you for all the great tasks and ideas on the website.

Jacob labelled his treasure map.  He worked out number bonds of 8  before painting his pirate ship.  He had some fun on his scooter after finishing some school work. 

Today, Bettsie did some baking. She measured and mixed herself, following a YouTube tutorial and made a Oreo and m&m blondie..it was yummy!  We also did the sink and float challenge, she guessed most of them right, but some shocked us! Finally she’s done some reading with Nannie :)  Who says rainy days can’t be as fun!? 

I trust you are all keeping well. Molly is beginning to talk a lot about school; she’s missing it. She’s been asking some lovely questions about our current situation; but is also ready for it to all be over!  The pictures: Salt dough self portraits, observational drawing in the cemetery.

Sophie practicing her phonics and blending.

Freya has been busy predicting which objects would float or sink today. We wondered if it was anything to do with the amount of air inside and how dense they were? The pirates treasure sank to the bottom but the pirate ship she made out of a milk bottle floated – right up until it started to fill with water!

Just a little video to show what Austin and Lily have been doing in their PE lessons. This terms sport is Austin's and his dad's favourite.....cricket!! On the clip you can see Austin and Lily practising their bowling techniques in their homemade cricket nets!

Here are some pictures of Bettsie, she has been doing some maths work and has been measuring pirate ships to compare, thanks to mummy’s amazing drawing skills (or not). 

Hello hope you are keeping well? Oscar and Skye have been making lots and lots of pictures for the NHS and key workers and have made a rainbow for every house on our street. Oscar has been busy painting the summerhouse, Skye has painted lots of coloured rainbow pebbles and we have been going on lots of bike rides and lovely walks. Oscar is loving spelling shed and Skye is enjoying reading the Oxford reading tree online.

Thank you for all the lovely videos been uploaded - Betsy loves to watch them.

Morning all at Nafferton School, just a quick hello from us and to let you know we are working hard through the set tasks. The printer has never been so busy and thank goodness eBay is still delivering ink! The boys have been helping Mum & Dad Around the house and garden although poor Mum is still working and starting some mornings at 2 am. As reward we have built a tree house which they are thrilled with and will be great for a reading corner/ chill out space.
Hope you are all keeping safe. The boys miss you all.

Jack has had lots of fun over the weekend planting in the garden and exploring in the mud! Jack has also been doing lots of practicing with his reading on a daily basis and on education city!  This morning (Monday 27th April), we have been looking at items that may sink and float from our home based learning. Jack really enjoyed this activity and was really good at predicting what would sink and what would float and gave reasons as to why he thought this. 

Archie and Cam out for a walk with Bodie the puppy.

Layla and her sister (Poppy) have been on a pirate adventure this morning. They made a pirate hat, eye patch and sword and then then made treasure maps before writing a letter to a pirate. Layla then did some measuring with a ruler to find out which was longest and which was shortest.

Ethan is missing you very much.  He has been keeping busy doing his homework, riding his bike, going on walks, baking and helping with the housework.  On Saturday, he managed a 12 km bike ride and  with minimal complaining. He wanted to share a couple of pictures with you all. 

Sophie has been busy doing her writing and maths today and misses all her teachers and friends.

Jacob was excited to get start with this week's work. Here he is doing his number of the day, “at the weekend” work, looking at the message from in the bottle (and the treasure map) before finishing with some measuring.

Kizzi has been learning how to build a fence this week. It’s not complete yet but will update when it is. Rhys is doing an awesome job of isolating in his bedroom - lucky if we see him! Both he and Kieran have been renamed the creatures from the black lagoon! Haha. 

Afternoon all,
We are all really missing you, the children are really looking forward to seeing you all again. I have attached some photos of some things the kids have been doing.
Harrison wanted MR S to see his fact about the loneliest whale in the sea.  Darcey loves education city, spelling she’s, Lexia and has completed spellings for this week. Alanna loved Mr Johnson’s rendition of Dirty Bertie.  It’s her favourite story.

Freya has loved starting her Pirates and treasure project this week with creating an old treasure map. She wet a teabag and wiped it on the paper and then put it under the grill to make it look old. She enjoyed making it very hard for the pirate to find the treasure! She’s also helped build a new ‘playhouse’ shed for her teddies in the garden and chosen the paint. That’s tomorrow’s job along with a teddy bears picnic!

Hello everyone, Jessica is missing her friends and teachers very much. She is also having a lot of fun learning at home. We have done some measuring and made slime with chia seeds, fed the chickens and done some writing. We hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. 

Alanna thought she would draw Mrs Sizer. Hope you like it!

Here is Dylan’s work on the Water Cycle. Here is Jorge’s work on the Water Cycle as well as his crafty picture of the world.

Archie has been busy finding the rocks around the village, baking pirate buns and after finding a new love for bird spotting putting a bird book together with the help of Dad! Archie thinks that Miss Guild will love his.

Joey made a water run to test which route was the fastest flowing. He made moon rocks in the tough tray and then did some colour-by-numbers multiplication Maths. He finished the day litter picking with daddy.

Hope everyone is well, we are missing you all lots Rory and Jesse.

Quick update from Mr Johnson (23.4.20):

Good afternoon parents and carers of Nafferton! We've had a couple of issues with space and uploads on our site recently. In order to ensure that each day's uploads do not become too strenuous on this lovely page and as of tomorrow, we are limiting the amount of pictures to 5 images per family, per day and 100 characters of text for your message.  Thank you so much if you have been able to share your child's learning and please do continue to do so. - Mr Johnson

So Ella has been on a nice long walk to burn some energy, mummy was very impressed how far Ella walked and she even wanted to walk back the longest way possible and refresh herself. She is missing school so much now.

James’s space station.

To all at Nafferton School. We hope you are well and are missing you all.  Harry G has been very busy in the garden growing vegetables over Easter. Attached are a few pics of him on his Easter Egg hunt around the garden, preparing his potato plot, planting his carrots, peas and sweetcorn, practicing his writing and making an 'Oceans' interest table. Harry has really enjoyed seeing all the messages from his teachers and listening to Mr J's stories. We look forward to when we can see you all again. Thank you for all you are doing.

I just thought I'd drop a line to let you know Olivia is doing just fine. She is enjoying working from home, but missing you and all her friends so much!

She has written a fabulous alien story, which she can't wait to share with you. I have attached some pictures: some baking - which we are trying to do something new each week (if we can get the ingredients we need); an alien spaceship porthole - which we made from two paper plates covered in tin foil;  the self portrait art task - I taught Liv all about Andy Warhol and the Pop Art movement, she really liked the colourful Marilyn Monroe images, so she used them to help her make her own Pop Art style picture featuring our family pet (Dobby the guinea pig)

And, of course, Liv has been dancing.......loads. She is starting online classes this week via Zoom, which she is very excited about!

Thank you for all the ideas, the weekly sheets are a good idea. The Whiterose maths is working well. We initially had many problems getting on Education City due to the demand and haven't tried it recently, but we have been completing exercises on Espresso. 

I really hope you both and all the staff are keeping well. Thank you for all the hard work which is going into the work and making the children feel as normal as they can (as a primary school teacher, I know how hard it is). Liv loves the videos and stories on the website - keep them coming!

Another fun packed few days at HarryandLils Primary School.

What a busy time we are having at home. We have been crafting, gardening, baking, going for bike rides, making mini beast hotels in the garden and doing lots of home schooling.  Although we are enjoying family time, we are missing school and all our friends and teachers. We hope to see everyone soon!

Love Edward and Robyn 

Joshua. H has been busy collecting his books with animals from the ocean in. He made an octopus and a turtle from his favourite book.

Jake and Joshua have made some chocolate cornflake nests.  Jake then made some pancakes which were delicious. We looked at capacity. Joshua had great fun doing this. We looked at, empty, nearly empty, half full, nearly full and full. He then ordered them from least to most. Jake's little brother was looking at capacity so Jake joined in and predicted how many yoghurt pots it took to fill each container.

Freya has been baking, measuring and identifying ingredients to do lots of baking- carrot cake has been her favourite so far! The radishes are coming on well and she’s had very static hair on the trampoline this week! She’s had a lovely video chat with Isla P and found out her first tooth had fallen out!

It’s been a busy week so far in the Fantastic F. household! Baking, walks, gardening and pictures for our super waste collectors.
Autumn has finished her underwater scene which looks great! She’s also enjoyed Comic Yoga.

Sam loved weighing and measuring his ingredients for his pizza, and making it but not as much as eating it.

Evie has had a busy day! First she watched the messages from Mr Johnson, Miss Guild, Mrs Sizer and Mrs Pierrepont - thank you!! Then on to number of the day, handwriting and learning to tell the time. After lunch she made an aquarium, using bits from the garden and coloured paper. Finishing the day with stories from Mr Johnson which she really enjoyed!

James made some yummy flapjack and jam tarts yesterday and really enjoyed eating them as well!

Thank you for the homework! Oliver watching commotion in the ocean (Joshua too!) 

We thought it would be nice for the Nafferton school family of Kilnwick to get involved with today's singing. Here's a photo, I can't send the video as the file is too large to send?? I'll have a think about how to send it on. Love from The Nafferton school Kilnwickers!!

We have been having fun these last few days by looking after our pets and making sure they are safe whilst they play outside. This led on to building a bug hotel from gathered objects and looking after the birds (by building a bird feeder as demonstrated by Mrs Greenlaw). Anna has made some buns and decorated them beautifully. Yum yum! 

Hope you are keeping well and safe. We miss you all.  Lilli, Olivia and Eleanor all enjoyed Wake and Shake this morning.
They all then did some of their White Rose maths and Olivia did her spellings -10/10 first time!

Joseph with his clues for the ocean.

We hope you are all fit and well and thank you for work you’ve sent for Freya to do – she is enjoying doing it (sometimes) !

I’ve attached her ‘shoe box ocean scene’ that we will be using this week to talk about the ocean and water cycle and also a mini blog of pre- Easter activities – I have linked them to the primary home learning activities at STEM if they are helpful to others!

Hope you are all doing well. Here is a photo of Sophia, Tabby, and Aurelia legoing! They are enjoying making dinosaur skeletons, Tabby completed the Pteranodon.  This is both educational and good fun.

James and Emily enjoyed doing their colourful portraits in the style of Picasso!

Today Archie has been making a great big sea collage using felt, real shells, paper, paints, sequins, egg boxes and goggly eyes! He wanted to use the holes in the box to make scary sea sea monster eyes! We all had fun making this!

Archie’s missing all of his friends and teachers!

Penny spent the weekend running her ice cream shop in the garden and tending to her plants. Penny misses school lots and is looking forward to seeing all her friends and teachers. Take care everyone, love from Penny x

So far, I have discovered dinosaurs in the garden, built a pirate ship and taught my little sister (Hazel) how to plant seeds. Sam

Hi everyone, hope you are all safe and well. Thank You so much for the messages on the Class Pages, it was lovely to see your faces. Here's a glimpse of what Poppy has been up to over the past 4 weeks...

(Bike rides, Gymnastics, Hockey, Helping on the farm, Playing Pie Face, Doing the ironing, Peeling potatoes, French, Bottling lambs, Reading, Cello practice, Making Hot Cross Buns, Walking the dogs, Baking, Gardening)

Bettsie has been busy making pineapple jelly’s, cutting and measuring. She has also been doing her ‘At the weekend I’ and drawings a picture of her learning to ride her bike without stabilisers. We’ve also been practicing cutting skills.  Hope everyone is well!

Emily really got into the spirit of Dirty Bertie!

It was lovely to see you all on your online messages and it made the girls smile listening to you. 

Here are a few photos of Suki and Skyla over the last few weeks. They have been very busy doing a mixture of academic based learning, cooking and planting veg through to PE work outs with Joe each day, walks and bike rides. They made lots of Easter crafts and we’ve also had birthdays over Easter so we are certainly keeping busy! Thank you to Mr J for Skyla's birthday phone call, it’s the little touches that mean the world. We are missing everyone lots and look forward to seeing you all again soon, take care x

So the boys have been up to a lot of Easter surprisingly!

We have: made biscuits, completed some of our school work; practiced the trombone; made a dinosaur world out of a cardboard box; done lots of gardening; and looked at what birds and animals come into our garden.

Lovely to see the videos of the boys’ teachers on the website. It was very sweet and it made them both smile - I think they miss school very much and even said bye at the end of the video.

Stay safe and thank you for all the work - William and Thomas L.

This is Emily here. We made a start on the topic work today. She used an atlas to identify the continents and oceans on a map, then coloured it in. She’s looking forward to finding out more about the oceans.

Here is Layla’s underwear shoe box. We have made it so that the fish is able to move and she loved making it. We have also played with under water animals in water along with pouring and measuring.  We worked out that the bigger jug is three times as big as the smaller one. 

(Stanley and Angus compilation)

Thank you for your lovely messages and warm wishes via video. We were all really touched by them.  Molly was keen to respond almost instantly with a rainbow for the railings, we have included a little staff challenge for you... I would be willing to donate £10 should you decide to go ahead. We used the ride on our bikes as our daily activity.

We also wanted to share with you the beautiful sewing Molly has done. It was from a creative set originally given to her. A neighbour of ours had to have her birthday party cancelled due to the current situation; Molly decided she wanted to make the cushion to give as a gift to her as a gift. It made us feel very proud.  Thanks again for all you are doing to keep the children safe and smiling.

Day 1 of being back to home-schooling has seemingly gone well! Eleanor did some reading whilst Lilli and Olivia did some work on Education City.

Olivia drew her interpretation of Mummy using Picasso as inspiration. She said she chose this artist because it was colourful and happy like mummy!!

She then went onto read Save Pudding wood. While Lilli and Olivia completed some White Rose maths, Eleanor wrote her weekend news about Easter for Mrs Sizer. Olivia did some comprehension work too!

All in all, a very good day!!  The girls miss you all so much and are enjoying the videos you are posting x

Rory’s bedroom wallpaper has helped him today with the continents and the oceans of the world today.

Here is our Bray Way logo, we did it as a family. Hope you like it! Harry and Lily.

We loved the messages from the teachers, Jacob loved seeing Miss Guild, he had tears in his eyes, he is missing school, friends and teachers. In these photographs Jacob is: enjoying watching the Commotion in the ocean book; Busy helping building a new compost area at the allotment; designing a play park; showing off a collection of their ocean soft toys; identifying the correct coins to buy items from the shop; and weighing and ordering items from lightest to heaviest.

We certainly didn’t stop for Easter! It’s been a little bit now and then when we can. Miles was not impressed to write mummy a shopping list!

Monty made a bug hotel to pop in the garden. Hope the bugs settle well! 

We’ve had a good few weeks together as a family. Loving having so much time to spend with the family. We hope everyone is staying safe and we can’t wait to see everyone again soon. Lots of love Rory and Jesse.
