Mrs Lewis has kindly offered to do a weekly rehearsal with us so that we can learn a dance for the Welwyn and Hatfield virtual dance festival. The theme this year is 'Space'

If you need any support please contact Mrs Woods on the following email:

Hello everyone!

I am so impressed by your home learning this week, it is lovely to receive your emails showing me how hard you are working.. check out the photos on the website.

Thank you for your Young Chef pictures, your food looks so tasty and healthy and it is so good to see you cooking independently.

I LOVED seeing most of you this morning with Mrs Lewis, the dance is already taking shape, when Mrs Lewis sends me the YouTube link I will post it on the website so that you can start practising.

You will find the work for next week below - a couple of changes: I have given you a login for Charanga music and the scheme you will be following is the Fresh Prince of Bel Air - a bit of rapping for you and there is a mental arithmetic paper for maths.

Please fill in your reading journals on Purple Mash.

I look forward to meeting up with you next week and dancing again on Friday!

Mrs Woods

More Young Chef pictures. Please keep cooking and keep sending them to me I will be judging soon.....

Some pictures of this week's home learning

Dear Beech Class,

I hope you are all well and had a happy New Year.  Well done for completing your first week of home learning and you will see below your learning  for next week.

Don't forget to send me emails of your work I love to see what you are doing.  I have posted some of the work that has been sent to me by Tabby, Lenny, Sofia and Ellena.

Don't forget about the Young Chef competition I haven't received everybody's pictures yet and I was hoping to start judging soon.

I hope you have a lovely weekend and keep up the good work next week!

Mrs Woods

Be Careful What You Wish For

This is a short play written by four children in Beech Class - Jack, Jenson, Lilian and Toby. We spent a few weeks together on Tuesday afternoons discussing thoughts and ideas about inspirational pictures. I asked them if they'd like to choose one that they particularly liked and write a short play together. Their enthusiasm for this project was overwhelming and we had a lot of fun brainstorming, choosing characters, writing lines, allocating parts, thinking of sound affects and a few props and eventually filming. This is the finished version. Every single word is their own. This is their project.


Young Chef

Check out the powerpoint with some recipe ideas and the web links that show how to fold napkins in inventive ways. I will also upload the judging criteria for you to complete.  It is really important that the children are as independent as possible when they are cooking and that they present their food as best they can.  Good luck!
