Thursday 7th May

Good afternoon, my little pickles!


Hope you're all well and enjoying the sunshine. Haven't we been lucky with the weather? It's so nice just to go and have some time outdoors- sometimes we get a bit sick of seeing the same four walls, so it's nice to have a change!


I just wanted to remind you about our Purple Mash blog. I have approved more comments and posts today, as I will do every day, so please keep checking and keep in contact. Here is the link for the blog in case you don't know how to access it.  

How are you all getting on with this week's project? I hope you're enjoying the gratitude journal- I am! It's definitely making me realise just how much I have to be thankful for and it has kept me focussed on achieving my goals. Here is my entry for today:

Mrs Naylor Gratitude Journal Entry - Thursday 7th May

1. Today I am feeling relaxed and content. I am looking forward to a lovely bank holiday weekend with my family (and having a lie-in!)

2. I am extremely grateful for my job- I just love coming to school every day and being around you lot (I'm really missing everyone!). I'm also grateful to be able to have food- people in the war had to have rations, which meant they could only have a certain amount of food that had to last them. I am glad my family don't have to worry about rationing. I am also grateful for my sister- she always makes me laugh and can cheer me up, no matter how rubbish I am feeling. 

3. Yesterday, I set myself a goal to drink as much water as I could. I think I've smashed this challenge: I drank over 3 litres of water in less than 24 hours. Today, my goal is to plan something to do when lockdown is over. I might plan a day out, a holiday, or even just a plan to go and visit family. My goal is to think past the lockdown situation we are in now and to make sure I've got something to look forward to once it is all over.


Again, if you'd like to share your gratitude journals with me, please email them to our school email address, or you can post it on our Purple Mash blog. At the moment, I only seem to be hearing from one person, so I am sad that I can't show off all of your amazing work.


Don't forget to keep up with daily reading and Timestables Rockstars. I was a little disappointed to see that in the past week, only 47% of the class have been on it. Come on guys- you really need to try and catch up with Hope! 


BBC Bitesize are continuing to hold daily lessons for children in each class. This is the link you can follow to access today's lessons.

Today's lessons look great!

Maths - adding and subtracting mixed numbers

Reading - retrieval and inference lesson on 'Tell Me No Lies' by Malorie Blackman

Computing - algorithms and debugging


Attached to the bottom of this blog is the latest piece of work that Beau has produced. He's working extremely hard from home and has recently produced a PowerPoint all about VE Day. If you're not sure what VE Day is, or you just want to know a little more about it, have a read of this very informative PowerPoint. 

That's it from me for today. Keep working hard and I will speak to you all again tomorrow. It is the big day tomorrow and I know some of you are having a little house party or BBQ. Enjoy them and don't forget to be grateful for all of the lovely things you have. The soldiers who fought in WWII fought for you and your freedom, so remember them tomorrow. 


Speak to you tomorrow,

Mrs Naylor heart
