Health and fitness week
I hope you have had a good week and have enjoyed the different sports activities we planned for you. It is such a shame that we have not been in school for health and fitness week this year. I was really looking forward to spending the week with you all because I know you would have loved the different activities. Hopefully, the activities this week made up for it a little bit.
Thank you for all of your lovely emails! It really puts a smile on my face to hear from you so please do keep in touch next term!
If you send me photos, please let me know if you would like them uploaded to Mr W's blog in the email and I will send them on.
Spotted on the blog...
Alfie - What a swing! Great skills. I bet Mr Meredith was impressed.
Francesca - C’est beau! Très bien! Fab French work.
Check out Roxie, Charlie and Summer's climbing wall video. Amazing work guys!
(I got a little sneak preview in an email from Roxie. It looks like so much fun)
All the staff have been busy planning and discussing what will happen after half term this week.
I am really looking forward to getting back into the classroom properly but I will still miss you all. It will feel very strange to be in 3EJ but without 3EJ!
I am very sad to not still be planning lots of home learning for you too as I have really enjoyed thinking up some fun and creative activities over the past couple of months. I hope you still enjoy the home learning which is uploaded on to the website. Do keep in touch to let me know what you have been up to.
The new home learning may not continue to look at rainforests. However, if this is something you would still like to research and work on please do! I know it is an amazing topic and there are still lots of fascinating and incredible things to find out about it.
I'll leave you with a few photos of things I have been up to. I have done a bit of gardening.
My garden is only little but it is looking quite good at the moment because of all the lovely sun!
I also had a go at making some cinnamon buns for the first time. They were delicious.
We also had a little visitor in the alley behind my house!
I mentioned that I wasn't able to do the Bristol 10K this year but still managed to run one anyway.
Great run, who organise lots of races (like the Bristol half marathon) have organised a 'run solo'
You can set yourself the challenge of running a certain distance in a week, month or all in one go!
I am thinking about challenging myself to run 100K in a month...do you think I can do it?!
If this is something you would be interested in and your have enjoyed being active this week, they also have some events for under 14s. Please make sure you talk to a parent if you want to do it though.
Visit their website to find out more!
Please check with an adult before using the internet.
What a lovely weekend we had!
Thank you to those people who have managed to send me an email! It has been fantastic to hear from you and find out how you are finding the home learning. If you haven't been able to reply yet, I would love to hear from you when you get the chance! I am missing you all lots.

WOW April! Looks like you have been doing a lot of running. Remind me not to challenge you to a race (I don't think I have the stamina!)
Have you been clapping every Thursday like Francesca?
Arthur G and his sister have been doing some indoor camping
Lovely flowers Gregory! I hope you aren't missing the football too much.
Make sure you check out Maisy's lovely Marc Martin artwork! Thanks if you also emailed me a photo of yours. I have loved seeing them.
Did you spot Luna doing my work for me?
I hope you managed to do something to mark VE Day at home. I could hear lots of people having fun from my garden. I had a chat with my mum about my great Aunt who worked as a nurse during WWII.
I finished another book at the weekend and did a little bit of work in my sketchbook.
(what a treat to be able to do it in the garden!)
I took some photos of what I was doing, as I was doing it so you can see the process.
I found this drawing in a sketchbook I had done ages ago so decided to paint it! I started with an ink and watercolour wash. I then used watercolour pencils to add the details.
I also painted a little picture as a birthday present for my friend.
She's a big fan of swans and lemons, hence the theme!
Week 3 of term 5!
Happy Monday everyone!
I woke up and did some yoga this morning to try and get me ready for work.
Hope you had a lovely weekend and are feeling fresh and ready for the week ahead.
I would have been running the Bristol 10K this weekend but unfortunately it had to be cancelled.
However, I managed to do one anyway! It wasn't quite the same without lots of people cheering but I am glad I did it.
I might set myself a new running target and see if I can go further than 10K.
Have you found any new and fun ways of keeping fit at home?
I hope you all enjoy the home learning we have planned for this week.
Remember to get in touch if you have any questions.
May the 4th be with you...
It is Star Wars day! I know we have some fans of the force in the class.
Here is an illustration my husband did years ago.
Do you recognise any of these space ships?
Haven't we been lucky with the weather of the last few weeks!
I am sure the plants are glad for the recent rain though.
Have you noticed how fresh and green everything is? I think it is my favourite time of the year.
When you are next outside in the garden or out and about for your exercise of the day, see anything which has just appeared or is just about to.
I have spotted a few buds in my garden about to pop and the cherry are growing on my cherry tree. When I was walking Luna earlier, I saw the most incredible blossom tree in the park and some new pine cones.
Big shout out to Alfie who has been working hard this week! I love your river's journey and amazing artwork :)
Have a lovely weekend everyone!
Quentin - looks like you have been really creative at home. Amazing!
I made TWO tarts yesterday evening.
The first one had vegetables in it and then I made a second because I had left over pastry. It was a rhubarb and custard tart (there is a little bit left today...)
Week 4 of learning from home!
Wow. It feels like such a long time since we were all last at school together.
I am at West Leigh today but only have children in year 4 to look after.
Hope you are all getting on well with your home learning. I am really excited about the book you are looking at for English this week and look forward to seeing the artwork you create inspired by it!
I have loved seeing the photo updates on the blog. Great work guys!
Elliot, those scones look delicious. I bet they didn't last long.
Maisy - awesome guitar!
Reece - you have been doing some lovely art and poetry!
Check out Roxie's amazing cake on Mr W's blog. I wonder if there is any left...
April has been busy making a tasty looking onion tart. I might have to have a go at one of those too!
I got hold of loads of vegetables last week (7 aubergines, 6 onions and LOTS of tomatoes!)
On the weekend I made Parmigiana di melanzane which is an Italian aubergine dish with cheese.
I will update you with a few photos of things I have been up to tomorrow.
Stay safe everyone :)
Look where I ended up today!
I haven't been back to the juniors since the school was shut!
Although lovely to pop in to do some jobs, it was very strange to see it so empty and quiet.
I hope you are all staying safe at home.
I am missing you all lots and really hope we will all be back together again soon!
Hopefully you are all enjoying the home learning activities each week. Make sure you also use the time to keep active and do lots of other lovely things like art, reading and cooking!
I would love to see photos of some of the things you have been up to while we haven't been in school. Keep me updated by sending things through to the school email.
I have been very busy at home organising activities for you each week and getting on with some other teacher jobs. It seems very strange not being in the classroom every day!
I have really enjoyed baking and cooking lots of things. I have made some bread and quite a few cakes (until I ran out of flour!)
Luna has enjoyed having me at home but isn't very helpful when I am trying to get on with work!
As well as baking, I have done quite a lot of running early in the mornings. I am lucky to be able to run along the harbour in Bristol and the weather has been amazing!
I really love reading but don't always have enough time during the school terms.
Over the Easter holiday, I really enjoyed re-reading 'His Dark Materials' by Phillip Pullman. I first read them when I was about 13! After that, I read the latest of his books 'The Book of Dust'. Now I am on the lookout for another good book. Have you read anything inspiring and exciting while at home?
We have missed a few birthdays while we haven't been at school!
Alfie, Elliot, April M and Gregory.
I hope you all enjoyed celebrating at home with your families.
Here are a few photos of some of the things I have been up to!
I hope you are all looking after yourselves and your families.
