When I have been looking at your writing boys and girls, a lot of your writing is flying off the lines. Try to sit your letters on the line so their tails hand under the line especially with letters like 'y'  'g'  and 'p'. On Wednesday, I will plan handwriting activities as a revision day for you all.

Tuesday 12th January


Let's start with a TOOTY TUESDAY warm up video like we do in class. Have Fun! angel Scroll down! 



Our school topic is 'OUR FUTURE'. 


Talk to an adult. What would you like to be when you grow up? When I was your age, I really wanted to be a vet because I love animals. Or I wanted to be an artist because I love painting. When I was eight, I came back from South Africa after going to school there and I went to a primary school in Wales. My favourite teacher was called Mr O'sullivan. He made learning fun! It was then I knew that I wanted to be a teacher! I LOVE teaching you all and I have been teaching in Christchurch Primary since 2004! 


I have added stories below and a song from Matilda that talks about growing up. Enjoy!

Every Tuesday in class, we join in with this b rain busting workout to get us thinking!

                        Thursday 14th January 


Boys and girls, you are AMAZING! We have lots of visitors who come to our school and say how fantastic, kind and hard working you all are! From next week in our Foundation Phase, we will have a new student teacher who will set you tasks and home learning on the website with your teachers. Her name is Miss Smith and she is very excited to be coming to work with us. Miss Smith will be with us until mid March. Have a look at her video where she has introduced herself. We are really looking forward to welcoming Miss Smith into our team. 


TASK:  Watch Miss Smith's video and write a letter back to introduce yourself.


Tell her about yourself and what you enjoy in school. You are welcome to write or record your responses by email or on HWB. Send your work to me, Miss Herbert and I will pass on any work. Miss Smith will not be able to email you directly herself but when we all see each other hopefully soon, you will get to work with Miss Smith in the classroom.
