Mastering New Skills or News to Share? Let's Celebrate!!!

Whether you are helping around the house, learning to bake, getting creative, planting in the garden, juggling, mastering a cartwheel, gracefully front flipping on your trampoline, I want to hear from you!

I'm going to leave this piece of art at the top of our gallery. As soon as I saw it, it gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. For me, it represents light, hope and new beginnings.

This super-smashing boy was set various challenges from Beavers - tying his shoe laces, friendship knot and reef knot - he nailed did it!

This young man has been completing challenges at Beavers and mastering the tying of different knots. I love hearing about this and of course receiving these beautiful pictures. Thank you for your kind words - I miss you too, Elliott!

My Marvellous Mathematicians!

Anything you do to show off your maths skills will be added here. Don't forget to keep practising your times tables and you are confident in your number bonds to 20. Why not try setting up your own little shop and practise using money from your piggy banks and finding change. Ready for the best bit? If you enjoy eating pizza, cake, chocolate or sweets, you could work out what fraction everybody in your house would get; if you are willing to share. And, if you're feeling super clever, which you know you are, there are some tricky challenges for you to try under 'Home Learning' in the Hamilton Trust and Classroom Secrets links.

In the Garden

Hope you are enjoying the glorious sunshine! It's the perfect time to learn about animals and nature. Could you plant some seeds and watch them grow? Remember plants need lots of love so water them carefully and nurture them with a song or story. It would be bloom-in' marvellous to hear how you get on!

Another wonderful video from the garden, this time explaining how to plant a flower.
