Tyrannosaurus Drip!

Here is another story read to you by Miss Hill. This story is called Tyrannosaurus Drip and it is written by Julia Donaldson.

 

Can you listen to the story then talk to your family about it...

  • What happened?
  • Where was the story set?
  • Who are the characters?
  • Do you like the story? Why?

 

There is a worksheet below you can complete if you have a printer at home, if not, just copy out the sentence starters into your books and try to finish the sentences yourselves.

 

REMEMBER... Capital letters! Finger spaces! Full stops!

 

There are also some different dinosaur related activities posted below. Please have a go and enjoy! 

 

We miss you all lots!

Happy VE Day everybody!

 

I hope you all have a lovely bank holiday and get to enjoy some of the sunshine. What activities are you getting up to today and over the weekend to celebrate VE day? 75 years on from the ending of the 2nd World War.. Wowee!

Have you created any posters or banners for your house, flat or street? Send us a tweet or an email and let us know! smiley

 

Yesterday, I tried to create a video for you guys for the first time. I am just missing you all so much and especially our story times together, that I thought it would be nice for me to read you a story that you could listen to at home. I hope you enjoy it! Who recognises this story from class? 

I have also uploaded a maths lesson video onto our Maths page to practice counting and number bonds to 10! I hope these are useful.

 

See you all soon, stay safe & well! laugh

Enjoy your weekend.

 

Love,

Good Morning!

 

Yesterday, I went into school with Ms Hatton to look after some children whose parents and carers are key workers - this means they have important jobs and have to still keep going to work... like nurses, carers, delivery drivers, shop workers, Royal Mail workers and teachers.  

 

We had some fun learning all about 'Victory in Europe Day', otherwise known as VE Day! 

We celebrate this day as a country to represent the ending of World War 2 75 years ago!!! A super long time ago... Before Miss Hill, Miss Mistry and your parents or carers were even born! surprise

 

We created posters, bunting and banners ready for our party at the end of the week. Can you spot some of your friends from our class...?

 

 

Yep... Ektoras, Scarlett and Kaydaybannie!! smiley

 

Challenge!

On Friday, many people may be having a party to celebrate the war with their families.

What do we need for a party? Decorations, balloons, different types of food...

Can you make a list? You can write it in your exercise book from school!

Remember, when we write a list, we just write one thing on each line.

You could even write an invitation for your party... Who would you invite?

 

Please send us your fabulous writing and any other activities you get up to this week to celebrate VE Day! I will attach some resources below.

 

P.S as mentioned in the ParentMail - here is the useful EAL website which provides extra language support for various school topics...

Happy Good Friday Everybody!

I hope we have all had a good week at home. Have we all been remembering to wash our hands? Who has enjoyed doing the Easter activities? I loved watching Makayla's video... her Easter nests looked delicious! A big thank you to all the parents who have sent in videos and pictures so far - it makes our days seeing what the children are getting up to.

 

I found this lovely 'COVID Time Capsule' document which I will attach with this message.

The children can complete with the help of their family - I think it will be a lovely keepsake to look back on... It is suitable for all ages so please use it for other siblings in the household too smiley

 

Good Friday Challenge! Can you complete the Easter colour by tricky word sheet? Try and read the tricky words without the help of an adult! 

 

Enjoy your Easter weekend! Stay safe and well.

Say hello to the Children for us! 

 

Love, 

Miss Hill x

Good Evening Everybody!

 

Are we all enjoying the sunshine? It has been so beautiful outside. Miss Hill did a big 4 mile walk this morning to enjoy the weather, and look what she came across...

 

 

How fantastic is this rainbow to thank our NHS! Some children have been very busy in this house. Has anyone made a rainbow yet? Send them in to us so we can see how amazing they are smiley

 

We now have a new page called 'Easter Activities' which will keep us all busy in the lead up to Easter! yes please check it out.

CHALLENGE: Can you watch the videos and write some SUPER sentences about the story of Easter? Remember our non-negotiables... Capital letters, finger spaces and full stops!

 

See you all soon,

Hello everybody!

Who's ready to start a brand new week of fun activities at home?

 

Whilst being off school, I have been trying to get better at baking. Yesterday, I made a scrumptious banana bread. You guys could make something similar at home... It's very easy and does not need many ingredients. What do you think of mine?

 

Here is the recipe I followed;

https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/brilliant-banana-loaf

 

 

You could also try making some cookies, cupcakes or cornflake nest cakes. Here are some links to simple recipes below;

Cupcakes - https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/recipes/iced-fairy-cakes

Cookies - https://www.bbcgoodfood.com/user/896076/recipe/basic-cookies

Cornflake cakes - https://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/eastereggnests_93841

 

Challenge: Once you have cooked or baked something of your choice, could you then explain step by step how you made it? Could you draw pictures or write a list of basic instructions to help someone else? enlightened

 

Remember to send in any photos of you cooking/baking or your finished products! We would love to see!

 

See you soon, keep smiling and washing your hands!! smiley

Just checking in to make sure we're all still washing our hands? If we keep washing our hands, it'll help ensure we all stay nice and healthy.

 

Here is a fun song to remind us how to do it properly! 

 

Enjoy the sing-a-long! laugh

Rainbows for the NHS!

 

Have you spotted any beautiful around your neighbourhood? Lots of children are creating their own rainbow to add a bit of brightness and happiness to their days, so that when people walk or drive past and see... It makes them happy!

 

Have you created your own rainbow yet? Here is mine (Miss Hill) and Miss Hatton's at our house... What do you think?

 

 

Let's see you have a go yourself! You're all wonderful artists! 

 

Remember we love to see your creations too, please send them to @Marsh_Green1 on twitter or parentenquiry@marshgreen.bardaglea.org.uk!

Hello Everybody! 

 

Miss Hill here! Although we are not in school at the moment, I hope we are all still having fun and learning at home. I'm sure you are all missing school as much as me.

 

This week, I have been in school with some children because their mummy and daddy still have to go to work.

We have been having lots of fun doing Joe Wick's workout at 9am! Have you been doing it at home too?

Scarlett WOW'ed me with her reading yesterday, I hope you're all still trying hard to learn your tricky words and read some fantastic books to your family.

 

 

Have we been trying any new skills or hobbies? I bought myself a new colouring book and some pencils. What do you think of my colouring? I think you guys can colour better than me? Let's see you having a go!

 

Please send any of your new creations/activities/hobbies/pictures to @Marsh_Green1 on twitter for us to see!

 

 

See you soon and miss you all, 
Miss Hill x
