A bit belated but here are the lovely catch ups from this week.

From Sam, Lauren and Sophie's mum...
The girls enjoyed joining in at home, with all races for town sports.

From Tracy and Nat, Alesha and Ollie's mums...
Here's Alesha and Ollie completing our own version of bean bag race and hurdles.

Thank you to Lauren and Sophie, Alesha and Ollie for collecting points for school by taking part in the Virtual Town Sports. Great photos of you all and lots of imaginative ways to set up the races. You all looked like you were having great fun!

From Louise, Freddie and Bertie's mum...
Bertie has been finding fun new ways to learn his high frequency words to include fishing for them using a magnetic rod and reading the words to reveal the surprise hidden under the cups. He's written his name in cards to family members and licked the stamps ready to post them. He's also completed bug hunts, painted butterflies and cut out circles to make his own colourful caterpillar.
Freddie has worked really hard this week to write a great setting description for the picture sent through by school as part of the creative writing. He has also built a bridge out of Lego which was strong enough to transport cars across. We took delivery of 5 caterpillars in early June and have been busy watching them transform over the weeks into chrysalises before releasing the colourful butterflies on Monday this week.
And finally we found a large toad in our garden yesterday so the boys rescued it and took it to a near by brook. Freddie than drew a and labelled a picture of the common toad and Bertie had fun colouring in his picture. A real nature week in the Carter-Hayes House! Hope everyone at school is well. We look forward to returning to school in the coming months. Take Care
What a range of great learning you've been doing boys! Bertie you are working really hard on learning your tricky words and I love your butterfly and caterpillar art work and your life cycle work. Well done Freddie with your writing and science — Miss Phillips will be really pleased the weekly plans for Home Learning are being used and that some great work is coming from it...and what a great way to use your Lego (you know we love Lego at my house!) You definitely have had a great 'nature week' boys — the toad is amazing!

From Erica, Livvy's mum...
So far this week Liv has completed her 3D shapes using the sticks we collected last week. We tried to connect them with wool but they kept coming apart so we resorted to the glue gun which was much easier!
We have also been working on time. Liv wrote out o'clock, half past, quarter to and quarter past every hour and put them in a hat. She then put the correct time on the clock and I had to tell her what the time was. We then swapped around and she told me the time. I added a few trickier ones with ten to or twenty past but I couldn't trick her!
Yesterday Liv did some baking by herself. She had to halve the ingredients because we didn't have enough coconut! The recipe also called for halving and then quartering the mixture to add colours which she managed by herself again!
We are planning to do the sports later this afternoon when it gets a bit cooler in the meantime we are enjoying the sunshine paddling in the pool and doing a bit of lego. We have just seen a sparrowhawk in our garden too for the first time so we are all super excited!
Lovely catch ups, Livvy. So many things to do with a stick! I love your 3D shapes Livvy and your stick-made shape words. It is great to see so much life-skills learning supporting your maths (and your taste buds and tummy!). You've been very lucky to see the sparrowhawk — they dart in and out so quickly.

Keep learning everyone and keep safe! Bessa

Nancy in Y4 has sketched these amazing eagle and Harpy eagle drawings — I thought you might like to see them. I'm absolutely blown away by our children and their individual talents; I feel very privileged to be able to share in their achievements and successes, whether it's in school or through their online learning at the moment. They really do brighten my day!Also...as nature lovers in...
