Beegu

Well what can I say? We have been so thrilled to see everyone working so hard, whether at school or at home. Thank you to everyone for your continued efforts. In English, we have been exploring the story of Beegu. The children have been using speech bubbles, asking questions, and making Beegu a friend. There have been some lovely descriptive phrases, super handwriting, and fantastic illustrations and models. Well done to those who have struggled through the vocabulary on the Oak Academy, whilst working through multiplication this week. Whoever thought that Covid would add so many more words to our lives!! It has been amusing seeing the ‘concrete manipulatives’ in the photos, cubes, dough shapes, pasta (dry!), but I think Evie has the best choice – a tin of Quality Street – wow- what motivation! Our sculpture work this week saw us creating models with plastic spoons, or forks, or toilet rolls and elastic bands. So many rose to the challenge – there’s a photograph of Jack’s and Eliza’s below, thank you. Learning about the moon inspired some to use information books to write even more facts than I was expecting; whilst the science work inspired much ingenuity, thinking about materials that change their properties, or don’t. The Astronaut workout is continuing to inspire the children to beat their achievements from previous weeks. Over 60 - 100 jumps in 30 seconds?? What super children we have in Kingfishers.
