If you have work you have done, and would like to share, please email to Mrs Eales (6newton) or Mr Freeman (6anning) using the email addresses in the newsletter sent on Thursday 26th March. We will endeavour to load it on to the website as quickly as we can. Make sure it's named BUT only first names please.
Hi all, I hope you're enjoying the sunshine. I have put a few photos from this week up - I won't be putting them all up as there are lots from some people. But I am saving them all so we can have Lockdown/Dart page in the year book so please send them as jpg or jpeg rather than in word documents is easier. Any way enjoy...
A poppy for the War Memorial
This one is inspired by Kid Normal :-)
Great bunting Bailey
Here are some poems written using this week's resources for inspiration, it would be great to have more to add...
we do love receiving videos and audio files but our website is fussy. It likes audio files as .wav (converting is tricky and Mr Eales has to help me). Videos are best sent as .MP4 Thank you
Charlie has done a lot of maths and enjoyed the English this week. He spent about 3 hours creating a church on Minecraft (he got the idea from Sam P!) see below.
He's also been busy in the allotment - making the strawberries comfortable! And really exciting news, there have been two new additions to the van Oostrum household - 2 little Light Sussex chicks - who are keeping the whole family busy.
They've done work on: Magic door poems; how the eye works poster; some abstract art; drawings inspired by Steve Reich's music piece 'Music for 18 musicians'; spellings; and maths - angles.
as well as what you can see below he also worked on the White Rose problem solving tasks :-)
Bel has done some fascinating science work, art and some PSHE writing:
All this (see below) plus maths too.
Wow - I did not know you could do this, amazing!
Ed has completed: Alex Rider work, White Rose maths, drawing a diagram of his local area for humanities and a mosque for Mrs Green amongst other things. He has also made pizza - delicious!
They've done: Alex Rider book covers, maths, spellings, TT Rockstars, reading, Writing Journal, drawing a route of their bike ride for humanities, A stay safe online poster in ICT, and they have started another community card. They've also been making doughnuts - yumyum!
He has really enjoyed the activities this week and has been fairly motivated working at home. He’s completed the Alex Rider activities, all the online White Rose maths lessons, geography task and science task. He has also been painting rocks from the garden, coding using the Kodu program he learnt in year 5; getting out in the garden and going for lots of walks/runs in the countryside. Below are some photos.
All of his vegetable seeds have sprouted, he now has a lot of tomato plants, courgette , chilli, sunflowers & potatoes waiting to go out into the garden. He also did an experiment to see if he could regrow some peppers & tomatoes from vegetables in the fridge after googling how to harvest the seeds and prepare them; he now has lots of little pepper & tomato seedlings he is interested to find out if they will produce any veg. fingers crossed!
He has started his Alex Rider and science work as well as investigating soil with Jasmine. Rather worrying though, is the fact that he seems to have a new hole in his living room which has opened up into a whole new space - who knew! You'll have to read his diary entry to find out more...
This is a great programme currently airing on BBC2
Here's the recipe if fancy a try:
1 Banana between 2 people = 1/2 banana each
1 x custard powder
3/4 pint boiling water and whisk
A week ago, we dug up the old grass and plants in our garden. Next, we spread 27 bags of topsoil evenly on the ground using a pitchfork. After that, we scattered the new grass seeds over the soil. Finally, I watered the soil using a watering can, making sure that I watered every inch of the garden to make sure that all of the grass seeds will germinate. I am going to keep watering them every couple of days and hopefully in a few weeks, we will see the new grass starting to grow.
Here is a picture of me watering the topsoil.
Baking chocolate scones, BBQ chicken dinner, pizza, chocolate mousse
Bird box update, the bird box is finished & up, on the fence because we don’t have any trees, we may get a bird family move in though. It was quite a challenge but I am proud of it. The hardest part was lining up the pieces so I could screw it together, if I did it again I would make sure the holes lined up better and that the screws were sharper.
Bailey's Burger recipe
Ground black pepper to taste
We chopped the onion and cracked the egg into the mince and mixed it altogether to bind them together.
We left them for 20 mins in the fridge and then grilled them turning regularly until cooked through.
Stanley has been hard at work on his DT and horticultural skills. He has built a compost heap, set up science investigations and has replanted primroses at the front of his house to brighten it up for passers-by. Next he plans to build a birdhouse - great work Stanley. Keep it up.
