We watched the Winston Churchill broadcast at 3pm and then headed out to join our neighbours for a socially distant commemoration of WW11. We spent a couple of hours in the sunshine, whilst Vera Lynn played in the background. It was a lovely afternoon.

Spring Poems

Well done for using the powerful adjectives and imagery

My Spring poem

Spring time is garden time

Garden time is planting time

Planting time is flower time

Flower time is bee time

 

Spring time is bird time

Bird time is nest time

Nest time is chick time

Chick time is chirping time

 

Spring time is outdoor time

Outdoor time is sunshine

Sunshine is fun times

Fun times is happy times

 

Spring time is Easter time

Easter time is Easter bunny time

Easter bunny time is egg hunt time

Egg hunt time is chocolate time

Spring

 

Rejuvenating breeze sweeps through the branches,

Daffodils angled towards the warm sun,

The birds,how they flutter through trees,

Springtime has begun.

 

Wildcats gamboling through mossy paths,

Dew sparkles on freshly-cut grass,

Butterflies flutter over wet twigs,

Cool wind plays tag with scarves.

 

Freshly-sprung flowers peek at the land,

Grown from seeds sown Saturday last,

Happily, birds soar over the fields,

Shiny stones look newly cast.

 

Brightly-colored eggs appear in the gardens,

Cunningly hidden from determined eyes,

Children roll in muddy-banked streams,

Returning to parents who start to chastise.

 

Dew has disappeared into the air

Hotter is the sun,  

Springtime has ended,

And Summer has begun.

 

Written by FM

 

My Spring Poem

 

Grassy meadows,

On a towering hill

Sweet smelling rosemary,

An aloe on the windowsill:

Spring.

 

Colourful flowers,

A lush green tree,

A climbing grape vine,

Some luscious ivy:

Spring.

 

Bees in a beehive,

A greenhouse full of food,

A leafy hedge–a natural wall,

Children playing in the woods:

Spring.

Today I have done: I wrote my poem on spring time for English;then I watched the video and completed the worksheet on White-rose maths. I made a pompom using 4 colours and participated in 'PE with Joe'.I spent time drawing the view from my window using perspective and all the other art skills I have learnt in recent art lessons. As an extra art task,I drew a motivational poster addressed to the binmen of Hertfordshire as they are putting themselves at risk to keep the streets rubbish-free, although the rarely receive acknowledgement for what they do.

Today was-well exciting. First of course I did PE and then I drafted my poem about the spring and then did maths. After that, I had lunch and sketched a minecraft character in perspective! Finally, I sang 'fresh prince of bel 'air', made some origami throwing stars (they are quite complicated!) and some bushcraft in the woods.

Kind regards,

Today was busy. First I obviously did PE with Joe because I do it every day, then went outside to gather ideas for my poem about the Spring until 10:30. After 15 minutes, I did the 3rd maths activity which this time I printed so you can see it then had lunch. After lunch I drew some figures went outside then listened to a David Walliams audio-book.

Today I have done:  I prepared for my English task by going on a walk (on my own) and immersing myself in the feeling of Spring.I finished lesson three on white rose maths' 'introducing the ratio symbol'.In the afternoon I watched a 45 minute historical documentary about  the significance of allied air power in the Second World War and did my 'drawing figures art task'.Once I had finished my spelling I made cinnamon buns.However, we only wanted half of the recipe, so I used my maths skills to divide the different measurements by two.I followed your advice and rested whilst watching a movie.We also made Pom-Poms!

Origami time - look at the fantastic creations made out of paper.

Charlie and Jack decided to learn about the History and especially the World War 2. Have a look at their research and drawings.

An innovative approach to tackle Y5/6 statutory spellings. We like Matilda's story packed with some tricky words and we hope for more Mr Whoops' adventures soon.

 

MY SHORT STORY

Once upon a time, there lived a very curious round man called Mr Whoops who burped frequently. He was a secret agent working for the Government.

 

Mr Whoops was trying to achieve his dream goal, that he’s been trying to accomplish since he was a little boy, determined to arrest the master villain JELLY LEGS! He was the most  mischievous villain ever to walk - or should i say slide - on this very planet.

 

One morning when Mr Whoops woke up there was an exaggerated banging on the door, when Mr Whoops opened the door there was an angry mob of village people shouting out JELLY LEGS name saying “we want him gone”! As they all left Mr Whoops by himself, he put his agent uniform on and set out to defeat Jelly Legs.

 

Mr Whoops found a yacht on the river, he inspected it very closely and found blobs of jelly smudged all over the boat cushions and seats, it was slimy and smelt like fresh fruit. Mr Whoops said to himself  “Jelly always leaves a trail”, suddenly he heard loud screams coming from the mountains so he quickly jumped into a rather large vehicle and zoomed up to the mountains.

 

He found 2 people hanging off of a high cliff, Mr Whoops immediately spotted jelly legs pointing a gun at their heads shouting “Give me your money and i shall spare your lives”. Mr Whoops jumped out the vehicle and pointed a bigger gun, which was full of sleeping darts, pointed it at jelly legs head and told him “you’re under arrest”. With that jelly legs slid away as fast as he could but he was too slow for Mr Whoops and was shot in the bum with the dart.

 

JELLY LEGS instantly fell into a deep sleep, Mr Whoops quickly waddled over to the cliff and helped the travellers up back onto the hard ground. They thanked him and thanked him for saving them. As they walked back to the village, Mr Whoops was securing Jelly Legs to take him back to the village and throw him into jail.

 

When everyone first laid eyes on Mr Whoops they all started to clap and cheer at him, he  felt proud that he had caught the most mischievous villain in town just like he wanted to do since he was a little boy.

 

From that day on he was known for the most excellent, marvellous agent ever to exist in Whoopsville.

What a great way to cheer us all up - an uplifting story about life coming back to life... well done Aleshya!

Spring story

 

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times it was an age of wisdom.

There were flowers and trees that smelt like fresh honey, with beauty spreading and it was lovely.

The sun was shining bright in the sky, flowers growing sprout by sprout.

The smell of fresh orange juice filled the air, it was spring.

There were bluebells and daffodils that covered the grass, some would pick them for parents and family.

Happiness spread when it was spring, everyone was joyous and glad to be here.

When spring passed people would miss it, but they’d always remember the time that it was here.

The bees that would take the pollen, the butterfly’s flying over their heads.

 Eating ice-cream whenever they wanted[within reason].

Most of all playing outside and having a good time with friends and family.

Spring is a time to be grateful and look at life, see the beauty around them and say it is nice.

For flowers and trees make it beautiful, but the time with family and friends makes it special.

This is what we have done on the last day of March...

 

'Today was successful because I drew a really good picture of an ambulance in my letter to the NHS. Also, I now know how to round numbers in maths. Finally, I practiced my shading skills in Art. Next, I want to practice my touch typing when I use my google mail to talk to my friends.'

Felix

I have written a poem about the picture, as I was struggling to write a full story. I am just finishing writing up my recipe for a victoria sandwich too and have been doing lots of weighing and measuring. I've made cakes, gnocchi and flatbreads. I've also completed all of my mathletics tasks. Are there any more that I can do?

Tomorrow, I plan to write my NHS letter and do some art.

Some more writing and look at this presentation - simply the best!

A great choice of adjectives and a very atmospheric poem.

 

THE BENCH

Tired and shabby you stand quietly in the park

You’ve had thousands of visitors, yet appear neglected

Sad and unloved, yet so inviting

The wind blows gently, the trees swish and sway

Yet you stand firm, welcoming more visitors

We have made some rainbows. They serve to remind us that there is hope and light to follow even after dark times. The colourful creations will be displayed in the windows to help cheer others up and raise a smile as we spend more time inside.
