Another lovely bright day and another day of lovely catch ups to brighten our moods...

From Jo, Louis-Rose's mum...
Hi Bessa, I hope you and the staff are all ok. We have been busy learning about space, building a lego space station, using the NASA children's website, and watching Professor Brian Cox (who I have a bit of a crush on!). Louisa misses all her friends and coming to school. I miss having any peace 😂.Take care Xxx
Well done, Louisa-Rose. My son Louis loves Lego...he's a big Star Wars Lego model fan so our house is brimming with Lego models — it makes me smile knowing other children get so much pleasure out of playing and creating with it too.
There's such a lot of exciting things to find out about space, isn't there? We were outside last night watching satellites race at incredible speeds across the night sky — absolutely amazing! Tonight, it'll be even more exciting as we have a meteor shower overhead — we have a competition at our house to see who is the first to spot the shooting stars. Need to rug up warm though!

From Eryn, Lizzy and Ella's mum...
Photos: Breakfast maths challenge / cutting and sticking. Yesterday's nature walk fact gathering for Lizzy's River Weaver Habitat file. Lots of lovely learning and exploring girls. We had a great River Weaver walk last year with Base 3 and Miss McKinnon.

From Sam, Lauren, Sophie and Joshie's mum...
Hi all, Hope you're keeping well. We've gone with the nature theme this week. We've been busy making art arrangements from a nature walk around the garden ( Joshie made a ladybird, Sophie made a Viking helmet, Lauren made a Greek vase, to tie in with last term's project). We took photographs of nature in our garden, which then inspired the girls to write a poem each about nature. We have been bird spotting, playing tree top trumps and finding out facts about various trees. We have also all enjoyed comparing bees and wasps, identifying their similarities and differences. Take care, The Agnews x Lots of lovely learning and beautiful presentation! I know that Mrs Agnew loves facts! What a great idea to play tree Top Trumps. I wonder which card/tree you all wanted? Was it the mighty oak or the elegant silver birch? Was it the sycamore with its 'helicopter' seeds or a totally different tree?

It's lovely to know (and see) all the super learning that you are all doing through activities that you really do enjoy and engage with — that's the best kind of learning! Maybe some of you would like to make your own set of Top Trump cards by finding out some facts and then creating the cards? Or you may like to make your own habitat file like Lizzy about a place somewhere close to where you live or even your own garden? Or like Louisa-Rose, make a big Lego model. Lots of lovely learning ideas — why not have a go?
Thank you for keeping in touch and keeping us up to date. Keep safe, Bessa

Base 1 have had a very busy week. We started off the week by wearing odd socks to show that we are all different and unique. It is ok to be different because if we were all the same life would be very boring. We talked about staying safe when we might be using our grown ups phones or ipads and what to do if we are unsure if something pops up that we shouldn't play or be looking at. Reception...

The Little Wrens wore our odd socks at the start of this week to show that we are all different and should just be ourselves. We joined the school in a zoom anti-bullying assembly and loved dancing to Andy and the Oddsocks music video. The children enjoyed the book Simon Sock, a story celebrating differences. Simon is an odd sock who is trying to find his perfect pair. We then got creative and...
