Well done for a super week 3T and 3L. I am really proud of all your efforts this week, both for the children online and in school.
I also just want to apologise for the ICT ‘glitches’ during the disco! I am seeking some ICT support to try and improve things for next time, thank you for being so patient with me. Miss Lister and I are lucky to teach such mature children!
Congratulations to Angel for winning the Pride of Plover for her independence and confidence when working online. Well done to Eva too for her independence when working online abs submitting wonderful work. Keep an eye on your post!
Have a lovely weekend and we look forward to seeing you on Monday!
Well done to those children who logged on today in Year 3! I am proud of each and every one of you. You all took me by surprise when you logged back on for our HoWLs and every person brought back their super expedition learning. Thank you so much for the effort you put in to this afternoon.If you have any photos, please send them. These are the ones that I have received so far. Thank you to Jude, Angel, Lily-Grace, Frazer, Eva and Kayden! Keep up the great work Year 3. #loveplover
I just wanted to do a ‘shout out’ to all the children in year 3 and 4 who have been logging on and completing work. You really are becoming experts in using classrooms and have make such progress since last Wednesday. Well done -I’m sure you can teach the grown ups a thing or two now.
We have had some lovely practical learning being completed at home and in school to support our Natural Disasters expedition, with the home made volcanoes coming along very nicely. I can’t wait till next week when we start being scientists and completing experiments with them. Advanced notice for next week, you will need some vinegar, bicarbonate of soda and if possible (but not essential) some red or orange food colouring. If you can’t get hold of that, some Coca Cola and a mint will work too.
We have decided to celebrate learning at 2pm Friday afternoon, by turning Plover Praise time into our very own ‘Plover Virtual Disco’ – so get your party clothes on, do your hair and get ready to boogie!
Check out our wonderful volcanoes – you still have time to make your own ready for our ‘explosive’ experiments next week.
Our children in school have been busy painting their salt dough volcanoes today! We’ve been using Katie-May’s home made model as inspiration. We’ve put the base coat of paint on today and we are excited to add red, orange and yellow to represent the lava! #loveplover
Have your circumstances changed? You may be entitled to Free School Meals.
