It's nearly the summer!
When I look back the time has whizzed past really quickly. I think that's because we've all been really busy. It's nice to think about all the little things we've done and all the things we've made, drawn and baked - especially the things we've baked
I know you've all been busy doing lots of different and exciting things - some of them big things and some of them little things, but I can't wait to see you all and find out what they are.
We had an arty week this week. One day we went out to do some drawing outside and we've done some still life too.
Have a look and see what you think.
Hello from a blustery Wigton!
I needed to get out of the house this week to 'blow away the cobwebs' (wake myself up a bit) so we hopped into the car and had a lovely drive to Mungrisedale. It was really nice and a bit breezy, but the sun made a brief appearance. It was just what I needed and I came home with a smile on my face.
What's happened to the weather?
It should have been carnival day yesterday so some families on the street dressed up and had a little socially distanced carnival parade dodging the showers! We had a zoo theme, I was a giraffe, Ella was a panda, Joe was a budgie and Tom was a monkey.
We also managed to catch the sunshine earlier in the week having a socially distanced picnic with some friends.
I hope you're finding lots to do. Don't forget to check out the ideas on my 'Just for fun' page on the website.
We've entered a couple of competitions this week. One was write a postcard as a historical person in lockdown, another was to design a comic strip for a comic and then we build a Lego model to display at Tullie House. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
We also found a rope swing on one of our walks this week which was great fun. Talking about our walks we took some cutouts one day to use as frames for photographs. On another walk we made some art out of natural stuff. Have a look at the photos we took.
I also tried baking Blondies. They're a bit like Brownies but no chocolate. Still tasty though!
We took our exploring a little bit further this weekend had a session at the Forest School Stockswood. It was really lovely to get out of the house and spend some time together just having fun.
As well as that I had a go at hairdressing. Our Guinea pig needed a groom and trim so I gave her a haircut! I even managed to give her some time at the nail salon when I trimmed her claws. I don't think she was too chuffed with the results though.
Now I need to get back into the garden to get rid of all the weeds that have sprung up after that lovely rain.
Have a great week and be brilliant like you always are!
The weeks are whizzing past so quickly! I've been busy doing school work and house work this week. We went for a lovely long bike ride around Wigton as well. I'm always on the look out for new places to explore. Even though I've lived here a long time , I've managed to find a few places I'd never been before. Just goes to show that there are always new places to explore even right under your nose!
What glorious weather!
It's been nice this week to relax a bit and spend some time doing nothing - even though I'm not very good at doing that - I tend to get itchy feet after a bit. I've enjoyed reading in the garden, in the hammock, on my bed, it's one of my favourite things to do!
We've tried some of the activities on our website: making crystals and cornflour clay. We've been out and about on our walks, did a spot of fishing and had a lovely little picnic on a deserted beach. I hope you've enjoyed the sunshine, if not there's plenty more to come!
I've been trying to get some gardening done this week. The grass in my garden was so long I couldn't see my feet! I managed to mow the lawn, did some weeding, planted some courgettes and kale plants and thinned out some other vegetables-and I've done lots of watering.
Because we've all been working hard over the last few weeks, we decided to spend some time together doing some fun stuff. Ella and me managed to make our own cactus pebbles, we made some tie dye t-shirts, we went exploring new places on our walks and we played the 'draw a picture on my back' game - turns out it's harder than it looks! It's good to take some time out to enjoy yourselves.
What a lovely weekend I've had!
We put up the bunting we had made and had our red white and blue picnic yesterday like I told you and it was scrummy! We made some marshmallow teacups and left them for our neighbours. Some of our them had dressed up in 1940s style clothes.
Then someone on our street played The Last Post on a trumpet and we raised a glass to say thank you on this special VE Day.
It has been so warm that we got our new paddling pool out. It took all afternoon to fill, but my children enjoyed themselves anyway!
This week's been another busy one. We decided to have a go at the 'Come Dine With Me' challenge. We all planned and cooked a 2 course meal and scored each one. It was a lot of fun. Here are some of the dished we cooked.
I also gave my children some stick on googly eyes and asked them to make faces around the garden. Have a look at the results. And on our walks I've noticed lots of signs of spring appearing which is lovely - Spring is my favourite season - what's yours?
What lovely weather we've had this week! I hope you're all busy enjoying yourselves.
We've tried to fit in our school work, this week, in different ways.
We made some brownies - a bit of maths and DT.
We set up an obstacle course in the garden - there's our PE.
We wrote cards and letters for our family and sent them off - this weeks English.
We watched an interesting programme about Ancient Egypt - lots of History there.
Oh and we made some beautiful flower eggs - the science of how water changes.
How have you been learning and finding out this week?
Hello again Class 3 I hope you're all having a lovely weekend. Well there goes another week! We're still eating our way through chocolate, but we've been hard at work doing our school work as well. There's always time for some fun don't you think? This week we've been on lots of walks. While we've been out and about, I've set my 3 children a challenge to find the letters of their names in unexpected places and take some photos. I'll show you what I mean...
What letters can you see?
What letters do you need for your name?
It's been a busy couple of weeks! We've been painting rainbows and making Easter cards.
There's been lots of activity in the kitchen as well. We've made Easter nests, and tried out the bunny cakes and bunny hug biscuits I suggested on the 'Just for fun' page. Then we had a go at making bread.
On one of our walks we collected bits and pieces to make Pace eggs and while the weather was warm we painted with water on our patio. On one sunny day everyone got busy tidying up the garden and planting up some vegetables. We tried out Joe Wicks workouts and Oti Mabuse's dance session.
After I had a look at the school website we had a go at making lobster footprints from Class 1's page and some peg chicks. There are lots of great ideas to try out.
