Class 6

21.6.20

 

Good Morning beautiful ones,

 

Happy Sunday! This is my 91st letter to you and my last. Some of us return to school tomorrow,  some of us return on Thursday, some of us remain at home.
 

You might be feeling nervous about coming back and I completely understand that, school is going to look and feel a bit different to the last time you were there. But I can promise you that those worries and those grumbling feelings in your tummy will disappear as soon as you step foot back into our classroom.

 

I know that being being split in two it’s also tricky, there will be people in the other bubble that you want to see and can’t. There will also be some children who aren’t returning who we will all miss incredibly. But if you’re feeling sad about that I want to remind you of the very first letter I wrote to you on the 20th March, they day that we closed.

 

‘’The door to our classroom closes on Friday; we don’t know how when it will open again.  So I want to take this opportunity to remind you that we, Class 6, remain a family and a team as we have been since September.  We might not be together but the relationships we have made, the friendships we have built, the hard work we have done and the giggles we have had will remain, no matter how long we are parted.  I have loved every second of teaching you this year.  You are all incredible and I adore each and every one of you.  It breaks my heart that we won’t be together on Monday but I know you will all continue to be amazing and make me proud.  Remember Class 6 is the BEST and always will be.’

 

We are a family, even though some of us will still be parted we remain as one family just like we did in September and I promise you now as I promised you then, I will look after you, keep you safe, help you to grow and love every single one of you with all my heart.

 

I can’t wait to see you next week and for those of you who aren’t returning please know that we will be thinking about you and missing you so much.

 

I have loved writing to you and sharing a song with you each day. It has given me a little bit of the job I love every day and when you respond to it on classroom you have no idea how much it means to me.

 

My job is so much of who I am and I love it.  To be without it for so long has been so hard. The hardest thing has been to have the most amazing class this year, my most favourite class ever, and have our time together taken away.
 

I’m excited for these next four weeks, to be able to have a bit of time with you before you become big Year 4’s and move on with your next teacher, will be so precious.

 

 I found our song for today a few weeks ago and I knew that if we were ever to get the opportunity to open the doors to our classroom again that this should be the final song. I hope you like it.

Good Morning my lovelies,

 

We’ve made it to another Friday and our last Friday of home schooling! Only three more days til the first group of us will be back together. I’m so excited I can’t begin to describe it to you.


 Only three of these letters left to write... unless you want them to continue? I could write two a week filling you all in on what the other bubble are up to? We can have a chat about it next week , it feels so lovely to be able to write that.

 

It’s also my last day of home schooling my two children. Aidan is going back to school to join some of his Year 6 class and Gabby is very excited to be joining a key worker bubble at her school.

 

I had better go and get on with that job as I am still in bed and it’s 8.54! Last chance to enjoy lazy mornings for a while!

 

Here is your song for today

Good Morning Team,

 

I hope you are all feeling good on this damp Thursday. I have really enjoyed the last few days at school and out in the sunshine but I do also love a rainy day, especially when you don’t have to go anywhere.

 

There is something really calming and peaceful about the rain when it’s like this. I’m writing to you while laying in bed with the windows open watching and listening to the rain and the birds, it’s so nice.

 

One of the jobs I did when I was in school this week was to get our classroom ready for next week. I’ve taken some photos so you can see it. 
 

It looks like the way we make it when we do Art sometimes, when we’re following a step by step video for drawing. You’ll each get your own table and two chairs, one for you and one for your things, we won’t be using the cloakroom which means it will stay looking lovely and tidy!

 

Today’s song is borrowed from the Year 6 show which I hope they won’t mind, I’ve listened to it a lot over the last few days and I think you will really like it, especially the lyrics.  It’s called Superheroes, which you all are.

Good Morning Bambinos!

 

First thing to say today is that I’m sorry I didn’t write to you yesterday, I was in school with the Key Worker Class and I didn’t have anytime to stop and write so I am sorry if you came on here looking for a letter and a song and were disappointed.

 

I’m back at school again today for some more fun with Year 6. This will be my last day in school until next Monday when, fingers crossed, I will be back in Class 6 with some of you! I am very excited about this and I hope that you are too!

 

The timetable is over on Google Classroom, remember you can also go onto Oak National Academy if you fancy something different but any writing and Maths is great and you can make your own timetable!

 

I’m off now to paint some props which includes a giant hand. Have a wonderful day and enjoy today’s song.

Good Morning Team,

 

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a lovely weekend 😊.

I went on a bike and scooter ride with my kids around our village, laid in the garden on our new giant beanbags and had fun in our tent which is pitched in the garden.

 

Today I’m off to school so I won’t be able to reply to your messages til later. The timetable is up over on Google Classroom, some poetry, Romans in Scotland and ordering fractions.

 

I will be dancing for most of today while I help Year 6 get ready for their show. I only have a day and half to work with them which is so much less than I usually have, we normally rehearse for weeks so today I have a lot to get through!

 

So our song for today is one that I will be listening to a lot as it’s the main dance I’m teaching. I’m sure most of you know it! It was chosen for the show way back before Christmas and many schools have been using it during lockdown but just remember it was ours first!

I love how much Winnie and Pooh and Piglet adore each other.


I love how important they are to each other

 

I love how special their friendship is.

 

 I love how they want to spend all their time together.

 

I love  how they can’t imagine a time when they wouldn’t be together.

 

I love  how much they love each other.

 

I wonder how they would have coped if they had been forced to be apart.

 

Sunday is a time to reflect and as I write this, I’m thinking about how in a weeks time I could be writing my last letter to you.  
 

I think about how much I’ve missed you all and how the thought of us being back together in our ‘home’ fills me with the same amount of love that Winnie the Pooh and Piglet have for each other.

 

I love the piano in this song and the lyrics

Good Morning Team,

 

We've made it to another Friday! I know the weather hasn't been great this week but you will be pleased to know that the sunshine is set to return tomorrow, for a day at least, and we have finished our work on Fractions, which I know some of you were finding tricky, but you persevered and I'm really proud of you.

 

So what are your plans for the weekend? I'm choreographing some dances for the Year 6 children to learn for their show, it's going to be filmed in small groups and then all put together so they still get to do some of the special things that you look forward to doing when you get to year 6.  Matilda's older brother is doing film at college and has volunteered his services to help them out.  I think that is one of the best things to come out of this strange world we are all living in right now and that is that everyone is being kinder to each other and realising how important it is to help each other.

 

I'm in school next week with the key worker kids, which I'm looking forward to.  Isabel has also set me a reading task, she wants me to read Ickabog and let her know what I think.  She isn't sure about it but she is still reading it.  I'm going to read it this afternoon and get back to her and you about what I think.  I wonder if any of you feel the same as Isabel? Maybe you are loving it? Let us know, Google Classroom has been really busy this week on the stream so keep sharing what you are up to because we all really love it.

 

Here is our song for today, I can imagine quite a few of you dancing around your kitchens and singing really loud to this one today. 

I hope it gives you a little boost of confidence on this rainy Friday. I often listen to this song when I need a little boost.

Hello!

 

I've been so busy today that I have only just realised  I haven't written to you! I'm so sorry.  Being in school for a few days has meant that I spent today catching up with all your Google Classroom work, emails and home schooling my own two tiddly people!

 

As I write this on a wet and windy Thursday afternoon my two have decided to make a ping pong trick shot game, which seems to involve all the kitchen pans balanced on teddies all over the lounge floor while they throw ping pong balls at them!   It looks more like burglars have been, but it's keeping them semi-quite and busy, which is always good!

 

I can't believe it's nearly the end of Thursday, I promise to write my letter earlier tomorrow as by this time in the afternoon my brain starts to get a little sleepy and doesn't work quite so well!

 

I do have a song for you today that I hope you will like.

I promise to do better tomorrow....

Hello there little ones,

 

I had such an lovely day yesterday. I hope you enjoyed seeing Darcy’s happy smiley face. I know I did! 
 

In the afternoon we had a snail race.  We had three race tracks on a tray.   One snail had a trail of mushed up vegetables, another snail had a trail of water and the third snail had nothing. Then we watched with excitement to see which snail would win the race.
 

Two of the snails definitely liked the veg trail best, although they didn’t travel very far. The snail with nothing on his track didn’t even come out of his shell! We drew pictures of them and wrote about what happened.   The snails we had were found on their field, maybe you could try this experiment at home.

 

I had such a good day at school, I hope you had a good day at home. Let me know how you are and what you are up to.

 

Here is our song for today. I really like the animation that goes with it,  I hope you like it.

Good Afternoon,

 

Hello my babies, I’m so sorry I’m writing this in the afternoon instead of the morning! I’m in school today with the Key Worker children and I haven’t had anytime to sit down and write to you.

 

I’m writing to from the story chair on the playground. The sun is shining , Ms Flint is making me a cup of tea and the children are enjoying riding on the balance bikes.

 

I’ve been teaching back in our classroom today which is the first time I’ve been in there since March and is so lovely to be in there but I really wish all of you were in there too!

 

Big news today is that Darcy got her pen licience!!!!! I presented it to her and she had the biggest smile on her face. I took a photo so you can see her!

 

So our song , even though it’s late, is for today is for Darcy . She is standing next to me as I write this and this is the song she chose. Enjoy!

Good Morning my gorgeous class,

 

It’s Monday again and I hope you are all ready for another week of learning.  I have posted the timetable on classroom for the next three days. This week we are continuing with fractions, some dictionary and thesaurus work and some History, Geography and Science.

 

Today is World Ocean Day and I have added a link to a web site where you can find out all about it and there are videos to watch and activities to do. You could also do your own activities inspired by today and post them on our class page for all of us to enjoy.

 

On Friday morning I sent messages to all the children in our class that I haven’t heard from for a while and I got a lovely reply from Riley so I thought I’d share a little of what he has been up to.
 

Riley has been busy designing and modifying old toys. He made his red truck into a replica of his Dad’s  truck a black Dodge Charger. He and Logan did the egg experiment and were able to bounce it gently. He has been enjoying the sunny weather going on long walks, a trip to the sea side and teaching his brother to ride a bike.  He watched the SpaceX dragon rocket launch and dock with the space station which he loved.

 

It was so lovely to hear from him and hopefully some more of our class will get in touch and I can share what they have been getting up to with all of you .
 

Here is your song for today...

Morning Team,


I hope you are well this wet and cold Saturday morning. I’m currently sitting in my car on my drive way charging my phone. We have had a power cut so it’s the only warm place where there is any power til at least 3O’Clock!!!!

 

There is one exciting piece of news during this power cut and that is I’ve discovered that my car can do cool things when my phone is plugged in which I never realised! Everyday is a school day, learning something new. I’ve also learnt this week that I can wash my shower curtain in the washing machine and how to defrost my freezer. I’m living life on the edge!

 

I also realised this week how much I miss being at school. Knowing that so many people are back at school while I’m at home is hard and then today with having a powercut, no way to connect to anything, two kids who are cold and bored and weather that we can’t go out and enjoy makes it even harder. But I have to remember that this isnt forever and we will get through it.

 

So from a cold house with no power I hope you can enjoy your Saturday as much as possible.

Good Morning Team,

 

We made it to Friday!!!!!!!!  We are at the end of our first week back of the new term and I hope you have found it easy to get back into the swing of things on here.  There are many of you who are very silent, so if you can encourage your friends to get more involved on Google Classroom that would be great.

 

I went into school yesterday to do some work and it was so lovely to see everyone.  I had lots of chats with teachers and TA's and I said hello, from a distance, to beautiful children.  I saw Ruby and Darcy who were doing some fabulous Science with Mrs White, blowing bubbles inside bubbles on tables which looked like so much fun!

 

I also waited til the end of the day to see Isla who was collecting her little brother Joel from school.  I presented her with her pen licience!!!!!!! She was very happy and smiley and you would all be so proud of her handwriting, it's so beautiful.  I also go to see another beautiful smiley face which was purely by chance and that was Eleanor! She was also collecting her brother and it was so good to see her after I dedicated yesterdays song to her.  She told me all about a canvas she has been painting for the display in the hall and I can' t wait to see it.  I also said hello to Tyler as he was walking home with his Dad and brother.

 

I chose today's song because it felt like a Friday song.  Work hard and then enjoy your weekend.

'I will fly, chase the wind and touch the sky.'

Good Morning Beautiful Ones,

 

I hope you had a lovely day yesterday. I know that some of you enjoyed your food chain work in Science and Georgia sent me one that she has done, which was fab and so lovely to hear from her after so long.

 

I’m still missing hearing from most of you but I did have some lovely moments yesterday and Tuesday that I want to share with you today.

 

Ines took Tuesday off from Home School and spent the day with her Nanny who she hasn’t seen in a very long time. She sent me videos and photos of her planting seeds and adding some painted stones to the snake in Long Bennington, she also showed me her cool Go Kart!

 

Isabel went to the beach after doing lots of work and sent me photos of her playing in the sea and eating chips! She also sent me a video telling me what she had been up to  was hoping for a chocolate pancake but I don’t know if she found it!

 

I emailed Eleanors lockdown poem to school and Mr Haigh has put it up on the display, he took some photos to show me which you can see below. If you want your get your writing up on the wall there is still space!

 

Remember you don’t have to share only your work with me you can also share all the fun stuff you’ve been getting up to as well.  
 

Our song for today is for Eleanor and her wonderful poem. I chose this song for her because it reminds me of her.  The singer begins all shy as worried and then grows in confidence and believes in herself. I hope you like it.

Good Morning Team,

 

I hope you enjoyed the beautiful weather yesterday, it's all set to change for a bit but don't let that stop you from getting outside!

 

Your timetable for today is over on Classroom, some more fractions in Maths, contractions in English and a little bit of Science.  Remember the work that I set you on JK Rowling's Ickabog and the Queen's Coronation are things that you can work on all week. 

Mr Haigh found a great poem called Isabel because it reminded him of our Isabel and posted it on classroom.  I love it and it, maybe this could inspire you to write a poem about someone in our class.  That would be really special for the person you wrote it about if you put it on the stream for everyone to read, just another idea for writing if you're getting stuck for ideas.  I also put the list of writing activities that you can do back on there if you haven't done any of them yet or wanted some more ideas to inspire a piece of writing.

 

Now time to get a little more serious.  I have a request and that is to ask you to get more involved in Classroom both on the stream, talking to me and your friends on there and also by posting your work to me in the files that I have made.  I only had 4 pieces of work on Monday and only 3 yesterday.  I know it's hard to do Home Schooling sometimes and you don't have to post everything that you do but out of a class of 30 of you to hear from such a small number is really sad.

 

I want to know how you are getting on and what you are up to.  At the moment the stream is only filled with my timetables and suggestions and nothing else.  I know this isn't the way that you want to be learning right now and I feel the same, that's why Classroom is so important to keep us all connected.  Remember if you do any other work that isn't on the timetable that is absolutely fine, this is a time where you can really explore the things that you are interested in and want to learn about, so take that opportunity and share it with us.  Or if you do something exciting that isn't about school share that too.

 

I haven't heard from some of you in weeks and now that Year 6, Year 1 and Reception are back in school I'm not in the building at all.  So the only way I can communicate with you at the moment is through this.  Please don't let me be the captain of a ship with no crew just drifting around an empty ocean.

 

I hope to hear from lots more of you soon.  To my little team of regulars; Ines, Eloise, Isabel, Bruce, Emilia, Eleanor, Isla, Elsie W and Charlie, please don't think that I don't love hearing from you and seeing your work because I really do.  I see it nearly everyday and I love the chats that we have across the keyboards.

 

So our song for today is aiming to get you up on your feet, get involved and let me know what you are up to.

Good Morning,

 

I hope this morning finds you happy and ready for learning.  Today is the 67th anniversary of the Queen's coronation.  Our timetable is up on our classroom and today as well as BBC Bitesize  I have set you a creative challenge to celebrate the Queen's coronation.  There are five creative tasks for you to have a go at, you can do one or all five. Share what you have done, this challenge will be on our timetable for the rest of the week.  I hope some of you have started to read Ickabog, this task of reading and illustrating will also be an ongoing challenge for you.

 

It's funny how the after the first day back after half term the holiday seems like it happened weeks ago.  Make sure you are still have time to be outdoors and enjoying the weather.  I found a new walk to do over the last two days. My friend showed it to me, it goes down to a little bird hide where you can sit and watch Ducks, Swans, Coots and Moorhens. It's beautiful and peaceful and quiet with no people for miles.  Never forget the importance of finding the time to do things like this.  It's just as important as your school work.

 

So our song for today is inspired by the Queen, I'm not sure its her taste in music but I hope you can see why i chose it.

Good Morning Bambinos!

 

Here we are on the first day of June! We begin our new term apart but together and this is my fourth month of writing you letters and leaving you songs to enjoy.

 

Our timetable is up on Google Classroom, today you will be continuing on with your work on fractions that we were doing before half term.  In English you will be using similes and metaphors in some descriptive writing and in History some work on the Iron Age.  I have also set you an extra task for today and for the next few weeks and that is to explore, read, enjoy and illustrate the world of JK Rowlings new book the Ickabog.  I'm excited to see what it inspires you to create, drawings, models, writing.  

 

Remember to share any work you do on Google Classroom.  You can leave it for me in the daily folders where only I will see it or you can post messages, photos, videos on the class stream, where we can all see what you have been getting up to.

 

I am feeling a little flat today.  School is open, my friends and colleagues are all there with children that we all adore,  but I'm not there with you.  This is a little hard this morning.  So in order to lift my spirits our song for today reminds me of all of you.  It is one of the songs we all sing at the top of our voices, I know that you love it and it was one of our songs for showcase.  I can imagine all of you listening to it this morning, singing and dancing in your kitchens and that fills me with joy.  It is definitely one of our Class anthems and listening to it makes me feel close to you.

Good Morning Babies,

 

Sunday is a day of rest.  A day to relax, to feel calm and breathe in the beauty all around you. A day to lay in bed, to stay in your pjs all day and to just be.
 

On this Sunday though, the last day of half term  and the last day of May you might also be thinking about other things.


You might be thinking about tomorrow, the first day of our last term at school. You might be wondering what is going to happen next for you, for us, for school.  You might have lots of questions that you want answers to and the uncertainty of the next term might make you feel a little wobbly.

 

It’s ok to have these wondering questions and these wobbly thoughts.  We don’t know what will happen this term and that can feel unsettling.   But when you feel like that there are some things you can hold on to that will ease that funny feeling in your tummy.

 

Some things are certain this term... 
1. I will be here everyday day writing you a letter, playing you a song and being here for you in anyway I can.

2. We will be in touch with each other.

3. We are the best class in school.

4. I will find ways to make you smile.

 

So enjoy today, have courage and be kind.

Good Morning lovelies,

 

Happy Saturday! I hope you are having a wonderful half term, only two days left and the weather is beautiful.

 

So yesterday I talked about the gloriousness and gorgeousness of my girls in Class 6 so it is only right and fair that today I talk about how fantastic my boys are!

 

My boys you are determined, focused, funny and kind. You get stuck in to everything that we do and you have amazing knowledge of our topics. You don’t moan or complain, you look after each other and although there are only nine of you you make the class feel full with your brilliant personalities.

 

I won’t get too gushy because I know you won’t like it, but I want you to know that I love and adore you just as much as the girls.


When choosing a song for you I knew immediately which one reminded me of you.  It is from one of my favourite films and I can imagine you being part of the cast all dressed up in suits, throwing custard pies at each other and loving every single moment!
 

Bruce, Charlie, Josuhua, Logan, Oscar, Riley, Ryder, Tyler and Viktor.  I miss you all incredibly and I think about you everyday. I hope you like your song and that it makes you smile.

Good Morning my beautiful ones,

 

I hope you are still working on my list from yesterday. 

I saw a picture on Instagram yesterday that I wanted to share with you, I’ve put it below.  When I saw it I immediately thought about my girls.  So apologies boys but today’s  post is all about the girls!


Our class is quite unusual there are 21 girls and only 9 boys! I don’t think I’ve ever taught a class with so many ladies ! At the beginning of the year I was a little worried , so many girls surely equals lots of drama? But not these girls, these girls are incredible and I love each and everyone of you!


 All of my girls, yes you are mine, are amazing. You are funny, fiesty, independent, kind, caring, thoughtful, beautiful, intelligent and special. Each one of you is so special to me and I miss your more than you know.

 

I’m so sad that we have lost so much time together and not a day goes past where I don’t think of each and every one of you.
 

So my gorgeous girls; Amelia B, Amelia W, Beth, Darcy, EE, Eleanor, Ella, Eloise,Elsie B, Elsie W, Georgia, Grace, Holly H, Holly K, Ines, Isabel, Isla, Isha,Romany, Ruby and Sophie.
 

I just want you to know that I adore you and this song is just for you.

Good morning Babies,

 

We are over half way through half term now.  So I have some things that I want you to make sure you’ve done before we’re back to our new version of school on Monday.

 

1. Exercise your imagination, let it run wild and free.

2. Dress up as princess , a pirate or monkey in a tree.


3.Stare at the sky and find animals in the clouds.
4.Dance in the rain and sing out loud.


5. Dream really big and wish upon a star.
6. Feel the wind in your hair from the window of a car

.
7. Smell a dandelion bouquet like it's your favourite flower, because you will grow up in what seems like just an hour.


8. Have bedtime stories each and every night.
9. Let the stories take you places you never thought they might.


10. Build castles, do cartwheels, and find shells in the sand.

11. If  someone needs  a little help then lend them your hand.

12. Walk barefoot and the grass, let it tickle your feet.It's the small things in life that  make you feel complete!

13. Make sofa cushion forts and sleep in a tent,
because this is the way childhood was meant to be spent!

14. Make someone you love breakfast in bed, even if you burn their toast. They will treasure the things that you did and moments like this the most.

15. Look out for others and be a good friend.

16. Show people that you care and that your love has no end.

Remember it’s  not about the money you have and the things you have bought.
Life is all about lessons that you have been taught.

Try to do as many things on my list as you can

Maggie And Milly And Molly And May

By E.E. Cummings

 

maggie and milly and molly and may 
went down to the beach(to play one day)

and maggie discovered a shell that sang 
so sweetly she couldn’t remember her troubles,and

milly befriended a stranded star
whose rays five languid fingers were;

and molly was chased by a horrible thing 
which raced sideways while blowing bubbles:and

may came home with a smooth round stone 
as small as a world and as large as alone.

For whatever we lose(like a you or a me) 
it’s always ourselves we find in the sea

Good Morning little ones,

 

I hope this sunshiney morning finds you happy and well.  
I know Elsie W is going to have a great day as she has got a bouncy castle at her house for the next few days! What a treat!
 

But if you’re not as lucky as Elsie and there is no giant inflatable in your garden to bring you joy there are lots of other ways to make yourself happy and smile.  It’s up to you how you find it and it can be the simplest of things. 

 

For my daughter it’s dressing up as a princess or a monkey and walking around our village without a care in the world. It’s painting rocks and leaving them outside the school in our village and then going back home to paint another. It’s baking cookies and playing in the garden.

 

For my son it’s playing on his switch and chatting to his mates online.   It’s managing to get a basketball in the hoop when throwing it standing backwards. It’s getting the most steps in a day on his fit bit.

 

For me it’s connecting to you, to my family, my friends, the people that I love.  It’s videos of my nephew Stanley who is only three reading two digit numbers. It’s my Dad sending photos of my Mum falling out of a hammock before he helps her up. It’s my  best friend texting me facts about my favourite film Back to the Future. It’s reading text messages that shows someone is thinking about you. It’s trying my best to make someone else smile. It’s telling people that I love them.

 

So whether your happiness today is found on a bouncy castle or just by letting someone you know that you care. Remember you have the power to make yourself and others happy even in the smallest of ways.

Good Morning and Happy Half Term,

 

I know you might not be on here this week as there is no work to do, but just incase some of you fancy a song or a few little words from me I will keep posting.

 

I went to visit EE yesterday to celebrate her birthday. Another house that was hard to find! EE looked very glamorous in a beautiful pink dress. She was very pleased with the wall of pictures her friends had made for her and she was going to go on a treasure hunt around the village. It was to lovely to see her.

 

So what are your plans for half term? Long walks? Arts and crafts? Playing in the garden? TV and film marathons? Spending time with the people you love and who love you in whichever way you can? Well whatever you choose to do I’m sure it it will lovely and full of smiles and giggles.

 

Enjoy your half term, you’ve earned a rest and remember I love and miss you more than you know.

Good Morning Lovelies, 

 

Well we have made it to the end of this term and it has gone so fast!  Lots of exciting things have happened this term...

Baby Hudson arrived into this world all gorgeous and cute.

Miss Baliol-Key, Mr Haigh, Mrs Taylor and Ms Flint all celebrated birthdays and Romany and Isla turned 8!

 

So on the last day of the term what is there to say? Well only one thing really.....

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY EE!!!!!!

 

We end this term celebrating the beautiful Emilia's birthday.  What can I say about Emilia?

She is kind and thoughtful.  She loves to sing  and dance. She loves to read and has beautiful handwriting.

She has a brilliant sense of humour and a fantastic laugh.  She is always smiling and everyone in Class 6 adores her. 

Emilia I wish you the happiest of birthdays, I hope you have a beautiful day full of jelly, cake and surprises!

 

So our song today is of course for EE and I'm sure you all know what I'm going choose for her...

Good Morning Babies,

 

Two more days until half term.

One more day until Emilia's birthday.

Two more weeks until some children at our school walk back through the doors. 

Maybe your brother or sister is going back to school.  Maybe they are not.

Some things are certain, some things might happen.

But for you and me we know that in two weeks we will still be at home, communicating through our screens. 

Maybe  you are feeling sad that we aren't going back yet, maybe you are feeling anxious about it all.

I know how sad I am that I don't get to see you in two weeks.

That I don't get to do the job that I love with the children that I adore.

But I have a plan, things that I am going to do for you even if we still apart.

So today for our song I want you to sing the words out loud, even the boys, because we are Year 3, Class 6 is the best, we are a family and we can do this!

 

'I know I'm Superwoman, I know I'm strong
I know I've got this 'cause I've had it all along
I'm phenomenal and I'm enough
I don't need you to tell me who to be

Can someone just hold me?
Don't fix me, don't try to change a thing
Can someone just know me?
'Cause underneath, I'm broken and it's beautiful'

Good Morning my kind, thoughtful and wonderful class,

 

Yesterday's letter was very emotional.  Thank you to all those gorgeous children who commented on Google Classroom about how lovely it was and how much they enjoyed reading it, you have no idea how much that meant to me and how much you all made my day.

 

I popped into school yesterday to take some photos of the lockdown writing display which now has several pieces of your work on it and I wanted to show you, so pop over to classroom where I have posted some photos.

 

Congratulations to Tyler, Isla, Isabel, Ines, Eloise and Charlie.  Your work is shining on the display, there is still plenty of space for anyone else to add their work.  You can write about anything you like and present it in any way you choose.

 

I also got to speak to Joshua on the phone yesterday!  The last time I called he wasn't in.  It was so lovely to talk to him, we had a great chat about his online Cornet lessons, playing hide and seek in the forest and catching up with his friends on zoom!  I then went to his house to deliver some Clic tests for him to do and had a lovely chat with his Mum and sister.

 

I know that today's letter isn't as long or as impressive as yesterdays,  but the emotions it gave me writing it and the way that some of you made me feel yesterday is still with me today. 

You made me feel special, loved and humbled.  Making someone else feel like that is a powerful and wonderful talent and there was no other choice for song to but this especially when you see what the lyrics for the chorus are.

 

'You can't touch it or see it.

But you can always feel it.

The greatest things you'll ever know.

Are invisible.'

Love you all

 

Miss Mills

 

My Dad read today’s blog and sent me these photos to go with it!

19.5.20

 

Good Morning Team,

So it's Tuesday the 19th of May today and this is the 58th blog that I've written for you.  It’s crazy when you see that number! Fifty eight times I've sat down at my computer to write you a letter which I hope that everyone in our class will read, although there is always the possibility that I am the only who reads them.  I hope that some of you look forward to them and possibly love to read them. 

 

Some days it can be so easy to sit here and write, especially when your day is filled with lovely and exciting things, like yesterday when Elsie B unexpectedly turned up at school with her Mum and Dougie just to bring me a gift to say thank you for her postcard.  She wrote me her own beautiful postcard, drew me a picture of Rapunzel and gave me some delicious chocolate truffles, which I am tempted to eat as I write this to you at 8.30am!

 

On days like this it’s easy to find things to write because my heart if full of love, I am blown away by these acts of kindness and thoughtfulness that have been shown to me, they may only seem like a small thing but the mean so much to me. 

 

When your purpose in this world is to teach children and you have to do that in a way that is so alien and unnatural it can sometimes be hard to see the difference that you make. 

 

Typing out timetable that every day that isn’t the work we would have been learning about in the classroom this term is hard.  We should be in the midst of discovering the beautiful city of Venice and getting ready to go to the mini Olympics in Grantham. 

 

When you do your brilliant work and you show it to me I should be talking to you face to face about it, what you’ve done well and how you can improve it, not type you responses on a computer. 

 

When Isabel gets her pen licence we should be together in class to celebrate her and make a fuss of her because it is such a big deal, not have me turn up in the rain at her house, standing 2m away, not being able to hug her.

 

Or when Romany gets a horse for her birthday we should all be able to ask her a million questions about it and be amazed at the wonderful gift she’s been given.

 

Some days this space is easy to fill.  Today, as everyday, I read each and every class page on our website, so I can see what everyone else has been up to. 

 

When reading one particular classes entry this morning I have been inspired to write.  Mr Haigh’s blog today is all about heroes and I urge you to go and read it.  At the end of the blog he poses the question: Who are yours? This really got me thinking this morning.  Who are my heroes? I find that quite hard to answer, but over the past hour I have come up with my list which I am going to share with you.  I hope that is may inspire you, passing on the joy of both writing and really doing some deep thinking. I hope it makes you really appreciate these people in your life whether you know them or not because your heroes inspire you to be the best you can be and what a great thing that is.

 

My Heroes….

 

My Dad, for always being there for me, for reading to be at bedtime, I still try to read the Tiger Who Came to Tea with the same expression and voices that he used.  For making up songs on his guitar and playing them to me in the bath, ‘There’s a monster coming up the stairs’ is my favourite and for telling me at university that he was as proud of me for getting my degree as he was when I learnt to tie my shoe laces.

 

Harper Lee, who taught me to love reading for pleasure.

 

Andrew Lloyd Webber who gave me my love for musicals and being on stage.

 

S Club 7, Steps and any other cheesy band who made me feel like it was ok to make up dance routines.

 

Peter Firmin and Oliver Postgate who created the most beautiful children’s TV programme that made me feel safe and cozy.

 

My Mum, she is the reason I love to bake and try to make my cakes look incredible. She made the most amazing birthday cakes for me when I was little, including my all time favourite of mice sleeping in a double bed. For making me fancy dress clothes, I wore the Arthur the caterpillar costume she made me until it was so small it hurt to wear!

 

Stacey Solomon and Rosie Ramsey whose Instagram posts make me laugh so much, make me realise that I don’t have to be perfect.

 

My sister, who inspires me to dance.  I always wanted to be able to dance like she did and we spent hours at the weekends and holidays making up dance routines.

 

Mr Forster, My headteacher at secondary school who taught me GCSE History and gave me a life long love of this subject.

 

Walt Disney for making me believe that anything is possible and happiness is out there.

 

My son Aidan, who taught me how to be a Mum and makes me so proud every single day.

 

My daughter Gabrielle, who teaches me everyday to be myself and not worry about what people think.  She walks around our village dressed as a monkey or a princess because she loves it, I sometimes struggle to wear clothes I love because of what other people will think.

 

Mr Haigh,who has a powerful gift of being able to make me believe in myself and inspires the writing that I am now doing on here, which I have loved and the way I am now writing my reports about you gorgeous lot.

 

Music with lyrics that touch my soul, there are far too many to name, but they bring me peace and joy, remind me of special people and moments and make me feel that I am enough.

 

I know I’ve written quite a lot today and it’s taken a long time to do, but like I said at the start, some days I have lots to say and to share with you, my heart feels full today and most of that is because of you.

Hello Monday Morning,

 

What fun and frolics will arrive this week?  
I’m in school today with the key worker gang and I get to see two very special faces today.

 

 For the last 8 weeks my constant buddy in school has been Mr Gosling, but not today! So although I will miss seeing him I get the joy of two new faces...
 

The lovely Mrs Taylor who I have not seen for even longer than 8 weeks is in school with me today, we will get to catch up on our shared favourite T.V programme Neighbours which will be great, so much has happened!
 

The other face I get to see today is a brand new one ! I’ve only seen her in photos but today I get to meet her in person and that is Miss Richardson, who is teaching Class Five, while Miss Newcombe is at home looking after baby Hudson.  It will be so nice to finally meet her!

 

I’ve loved reading your lockdown writing and I’m going to put them in the display that I’ve been helping Mr Haigh to make, I’ll post a photo so you can see! If you haven’t done any yet don’t worry there is still time and lots of room.

 

So here is our song for today, it is from the film Abominable, which I love. I hope you like it.

Good Morning Sunday,


Remember at the beginning of this month I told you there were going to be many celebrations of birthdays?
We have already celebrated Romany, Miss Baliol-Key, Hudson and Isla and there are two left.

Can you remember who?

Well today it is  Mr Haigh’s turn to celebrate and so, in what has become lockdown tradition, here is a little something for him.

 

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! A Poem By Dr Seuss


"If we didn’t have birthdays, you wouldn’t be you.
If you’d never been born, well then what would you do?

If you’d never been born, well then what would you be? You might be a fish! Or a toad in a tree!

You might be a doorknob! Or three baked potatoes!

You might be a bag full of hard green tomatoes."
"Or worse than all that...Why, you might be a WASN’T!

A Wasn’t has no fun at all.

No, he doesn’t.

A Wasn’t just isn’t.

He just isn’t present.

But you...You ARE YOU! And, now isn’t that pleasant!"
"Today you are you! That is truer than true!

There is no one alive who is you-er than you!
Shout loud, “I am lucky to be what I am!

Thank goodness I’m not just a clam or a ham Or a dusty old jar of sour gooseberry jam!
I am what I am!

That’s a great thing to be! If I say so myself,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME.”
 

So our song for today is for Mr Haigh.  
It is my favourite song is sung by one of his favourite musicians.

Hello Saturday, hello my darlings,

 

This morning I want to tell you a story...

 

There was once a woman who had two large pots, each hanging on the ends of a pole which she carried across her neck.

 

One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. 

 

At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked pot arrived only half full.

 

For years this went on, with the woman bringing home only one and a half pots of water.

 

The perfect pot was proud of its achievements. But the poor cracked pot was ashamed of its own imperfection, and miserable that it could only do half of what it had been made to do.”I'm limited just look at me, and just look at you. You can do all the things I can’t  do.”

 

After years of what it perceived to be bitter failure, it spoke to the woman one day by the stream: “I am ashamed of myself, because this crack in my side causes water to leak out all the way back to your house.”

 

The woman smiled, “Did you notice that there are flowers on your side of the path, but not on the other pot’s side? I planted flower seeds on your side of the path, and every day while we walk back, you water them.  For years I have been able to pick these beautiful flowers to decorate the table. Without you being just the way you are, there would not be this beauty in our house, you are perfect and I couldn’t be without you.”

 

This story is all about being proud of who you are. I want you to remember  this my lovelies : You are all special and you each have your own gifts and talents. Be proud of who you are. You are so loved.  

 

Dr. Seuss (the wise poetician) wrote, “Today you are you, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is youer than you.”

Good Morning gorgeous Class 6,

 

So as you can see,  above what I'm writing,  this is the surprise that I told you I was working on  a few days ago! 

I asked all the staff to send me videos or photos of themselves with stars so that we could show you that you are all stars and that we miss your shining lights in our school.

 

There are a lot of us and it took me a couple of hours to put it all together, I really hope you like it. 

Let me know what you think of it over on Google Classroom where you will find your timetable for today.

 

So what other song could I give to you today but the song from our film, your film.

I miss you all so much, my little stars, my shining lights.

Thursday's Timetable

14.5.20

 

Hello my little ones!

 

Can you believe it's Thursday already?  The weeks are just whizzing by and I didn't realise that half term is only over a week away! How is that even possible?

 

After my busy couple of days delivering birthday presents and surprises, I had a much more relaxed and chilled out day yesterday.  After I had done all my work for the day I  discovered the wonders of Disney+, I'm sure most of you have found this joy already.  I watched two of my all time favourite Disney films, Up and Tangled.

 

Tangled is definitely my favourite Disney film about a Princess for lots of reasons... 

 

I love all the songs in it and often wish that in my life people would just burst into song with perfectly choreographed dance routines that I could join in with. 

 

I love how brave and determined Rapunzel is and even though she's scared and there are lots of new things she has never done before she pushes herself to achieve her dreams. 

 

There are lots of moments that make me laugh  out loud.  It is such a special and wonderful thing to be able to make someone laugh.

 

I love all the parts in it that are about love and being connected to people.  We all want to be loved and wanted and this story tells that side of human life so beautifully.

 

Tangled is telling the story of our lives right now.  We are separated, for now,  but we are all being brave.  We have lots of moments of laughter and joy, we get to spend time with some of our favourite people doing some wonderful things.  We are showing the people we love how much they mean to us and everything will be alright in the end. 

 

I can't provide the dance moves right now but I can provide the music.

Lots of love

Wednesday Timetable

13.5.20

 

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

 

I had a very exciting and productive day yesterday!  As you will have seen on Google Classroom I surprised Isla by turning up on her doorstep to wish her a Happy Birthday, although it wasn't much of a surprise as she thought I would come and was worried I had forgotten!  How could I ever forget you beautiful lady! 

 

I almost didn't make it as Isla's house is a little hard to find, luckily for me though there were some helpful locals to point me in the right direction! These helpful locals just happened to be Elsie W, her Mum and her sister.  They were out in their garden waiting for Elsie's Granny and Grandad to drive by so they could wave and have a chat.  Elsie waved frantically at me and then her Mum was able to point me in the right direction.  What a treat to see both Isla and Elsie yesterday.  If it wasn't for them I never would have been able to find it.

 

These two lovely ladies weren't the only children I saw from Class 6 yesterday, I also got to see Ruby and have a quick chat with her when I popped into school to get  Isla's address.  Which was lovely as I tried to phone Ruby last week but I didn't manage to get hold of her so it was so nice to see her and have a chat.

 

In other exciting news, which I'm sure you can't wait to hear about, the man came to mend my oven!  He fixed the hob and the washing machine but he will have to come back to mend the oven when he has got the right parts.  But I can now clean my clothes and eat hot food!  I also borrowed one of the mini ovens from school to cook in and my children were very pleased it wasn't cereal for dinner again, although I happen to love having that for my dinner and I often do so when they aren't here!

 

I loved yesterday! It was so wonderful seeing Isla, Elsie and Ruby, and I also saw some teachers in school.  I'm also working on a secret project with the adults who work in school which made me smile lots, but I will tell you more about that another time.

 

The song I have chosen for today popped up when I was looking for another song, I had forgotten how much I lava it ( that is not a spelling mistake, this will become clear in a moment, maybe you have already guessed!).

It's a really beautiful song and story and lots of you will know it!. Enjoy!

Tuesday's Timetable

12.5.20

 

Good Morning my brilliant class,

 

I have lots to tell you this morning.  I hope you enjoyed the exciting news about Miss Newcombe's baby.  Photos of Hudson are on Google Classroom to fall in love with, if you haven't already, he's so cute!

 

I played delivery driver again yesterday, this time surprising Miss Baliol-Key, with a special delivery of birthday presents from everyone at school.  I love buying presents for people, it is my official second  job at school.  I collect all the money and then I get to buy gifts that I hope people will love.  Miss Baliol- Key was very happy to see me when I arrived and was  pleased with her gin and New Kids on the Block annual (ask your parents!) as well as all the other gifts she got.

 

Other exciting news my oven is still broken and so is my washing machine! Fun times at my house, so it was cereal for dinner and the washing pile grows.  Hopefully an engineer is coming to fix it today! I know what you're thinking! I really am living the dream here in Welbourn!

 

But the really big news today, just incase she thought I had forgotten, is that it is Isla's birthday today!!!!!!!!!

Happy Birthday Isla, you are beautiful inside and out.  I miss your smiling face, our chats and your kind heart.  I hope you have a wonderful day and celebrate as much as you can.  A surprise is on it's way to you!!!!   

 

So in our new lockdown birthday traditions today's song is for Isla!

Eat lots of jelly and cake and remember that we are all thinking about you today and missing you gorgeous girl! 

What other song could I have chosen for you my darling?  I love this song and you tried to teach me the moves. 

I always think of you when I hear this ! Enjoy!

Timetable for Monday

11.5.20

 

Good Morning little ones,

 

Monday morning is here again! You've had a gorgeous long weekend filled with celebrations and sunshine and although the weather might not be that great this morning I'm sure you are excited to see what today has in store for you.  On our timetable today is the eight times table, Stonehenge and some work on similes and metaphors. 

 

Your literacy work today would be great used  in some independent writing for Mr Haigh's brilliant writing display.  Check out our Google Classroom for more information about that and how you can get involved and have your writing up in the entrance to school for everyone to see.  Mr Haigh has also left you a little message to encourage and inspire you.

 

This is our eighth week apart and it can be easy to get down,  annoyed and frustrated.  Little things can seem massive and overwhelming.  My oven broke yesterday so now I'm trying to think of creative ways to feed my kids.  I'm going to borrow one of the tiny ovens from school and see if that works until it gets fixed. 

 

Yesterday this seemed like an awful thing to happen but I took a step back, distracted myself with a cup of tea and a biscuit and now it doesn't seem such a big deal.  If you feel like this with your work just remember you can only do what you can do. There is no pressure or expectation.  Remember I'm here for anything that you need,  anytime,  all you need to do ask.

 

Our song for today is one of my all time favourites.  It makes me think of all of you!  Really listen to the lyrics.

Happy Saturday,

 

I don't know if any of you read these at the weekend or if I'm just writing them for myself.  I do worry that I'm going to run out of things to say or songs to play.

 

I hope you had a great day celebrating VE Day yesterday.  I'm sure lots of you had garden parties, or sat in your streets watching your neighbours from across the road,  or had afternoon tea with the people that you love.

 

Whatever you did to celebrate it I know you will remember it for years to come.  So as you recover from the partying from yesterday here is a little song for today.

Love Miss Mills xxx

8.5.20

 

Good Morning,

 

Today marks the 75th anniversary of VE day, one of the most important days in history and on this special and significant day I want to talk  to you today about the importance of words.  Words have such power, they can change the way you feel about someone, the way that you view an event.  They can make someone smile and feel loved and they can make someone feel sad and lost. 

 

75 years ago the Prime Minister Winston Churchill made a  famous speech, parts of which are so relevant today with everything we are experiencing at this very moment. He said ' We may allow ourselves a brief period of rejoicing; but let us not forget for a moment the toil and efforts that lie ahead.'

 

I want you to celebrate and fill this weekend with love and laughter.  You have all been so brave through these strange and scary times and although we may still have a long way to go before we can be together again you must remember how strong, amazing and incredible you all are.

 

I said at the beginning of this that words are powerful.  Some of you will now have received the surprise that I promised you this week.  The photo I put on here on Monday wasn't just a collection of animals with your names on.  They were postcards.  I have written to each and every one of you because words are powerful.  The reason I sent these to you was to show you with my words how precious you are to me and how much I miss and adore each and everyone of you.

 

When I choose a song for you it is because of the words, because I want to send you a message.  You are my sunshine and I am a little lost without you all.

 

Here is our song for today.  Listen to the words.

Good Morning my little rays of sunshine,

 

I am so pleased that so many of you enjoyed yesterdays update about what your friends and classmates have been getting up to, I loved writing it.  The downside to that is that today's letter to you all won't be anywhere near as exciting.   

 

Yesterday was a mixture of highs and lows.  The highs being that I had a staff meeting with all the teachers on Zoom.  It was so lovely to see everyone.  We played two little photo games,  guess the chocolate bar: where there were photos of chocolate bars cut in half,  so you could see the inside and then guess what they were.  Then we played 'Where in School?' Mr Nicholson and Mr Haigh had taken close up  photos around school and we had to guess where in school it was, it was very funny.  To finish the meeting we gave Miss Baliol-Key an early birthday present.  All the staff at school had made her a birthday video or photo and I had put them altogether to make a film and she loved it.

 

The big low from yesterday was that my internet wasn't working, so I haven't replied to any of your messages or seen any of your work from yesterday yet.  So please don't think that I was ignoring you, I only just managed to get it back online in time for the meeting.  So I will read and enjoy all the brilliant things you did yesterday this morning.

 

So today is Miss Baliol-Key's birthday and it's not just any birthday, it's a big one! 40!  So our song for today is dedicated to the birthday girl.  She loves 90's music, so to celebrate we have a classic tune from 1994!  Enjoy!

Wednesday Timetable

Hello there beautiful people,

 

It's Wednesday!!! Halfway through another week, they are flying by.  I have lots of news to share with you today, so strap yourselves in and get ready...

 

So I went into school yesterday for two reasons. 

1.  To ring  and speak to as many of you as possible

2. To cut Mr Gosling's hair, as I told you

 

One of these jobs was very successful... I managed to phone twelve of you and I left answer phone messages for another four.  The hair cutting was less successful... Mr Gosling brought his clippers and asked me to come in early to cut it but when it came down to it he was too scared to let me do it!  However Mr Haigh was also in school yesterday and he has no fear and he quite happily let me cut his hair and to quote Victoria, who was at school yesterday, 'He looks amazing, Miss Mills you are like a professional, he looks brand new!'  So i would say that was a huge success, maybe Mr Gosling will be brave and let me cut it another day or he will grow it so long it has to go in a man bun!

 

I also told you yesterday that it was Romany's  birthday and that I had a surprise for her.  Well her surprise was me turning up on her doorstep singing Happy Birthday and delivering her birthday card and a little gift.  She seemed to like it and loved the song I dedicated to her yesterday.  Romany had a great day as she got a horse for her birthday! A real one, it's only four days old and she is going to call it Bambi! So having a birthday in lockdown wasn't too bad after all!

 

In other news I had lots of lovely chats on the phone yesterday so I thought I would share with you some of the things your friends are getting up to.  Beth was writing some funny sentences about squirrels and conducting some science experiments.  Viktor had begun to build a Lego city in his lounge and Riley has built a tree house in his garden which took him four days.  Bruce  was too shy to talk to me but he sends me his work everyday on Google Classroom so his Mum told me all about that. 

 

I phoned Georgia at 1.15pm and her Dad had to go and wake her as she was still asleep! She has been sewing and was planning to spend the rest of the day in bed, what a great day!  Ella had been doing  some baking a the weekend and had made some cupcakes with her Dad.  Eleanor is having a virtual sleep over later this week with Elsie B which is a really clever idea and Amelia B told me all about her brother being able to wriggle around now and get to her wherever she is.

 

Grace has been very creative and was making some dog toys and Oscar and Holly K were busy making bunting to hang up in their house for V.E Day.  Isla was about to bake some Mars Bar Cakes when I rang and Tyler was laying on the sofa with an ice pack on his knee after falling over running, he has been loving doing Joe Wicks and I don't think his injury was going to stop him!

 

Wow! Look at all that amazing stuff you have been getting up to.  So with that in mind our song for today is for all you because you are amazing!

Love you millions and miss you squillions

Good Morning Team!

 

I was in school yesterday teaching and I was so busy that I only managed to make 3 phone calls. 

But don't worry because I'm going in today and I am going to phone loads of you! 

I am also going to be cutting Mr Goslings hair!!! So that will be fun!  I've only cut hair once before but I'm sure I can do it!

 

Today is a very special day for one very beautiful and gorgeous members  of the Class 6 family.  Our fabulous Romany, my Ro Ro, is 8 years old today!  I hope you have a fantastic day Romany! I've got a little surprise for the birthday girl but she will just have to wait and see what it is, I will tell you all about it tomorrow.

 

So my song for today is for Romany.  When I think of Romany I think of how kind, sweet and gentle she is.  She has a heart of gold and I am really missing her hugs and beautiful smile.  Romany is an independent lady who is determined and perseveres through every challenge she faces.  Romany I adore you and I miss you more than words can say.   I hope you like the song I have chosen for you, it is one that you know but a different version which I love as it is in a musical called 'And Juliet'.

A little surprise...

A little surprise... 1

4.5.20

 

Hello my babies,

 

It’s Monday and the start of another week full of hope, possibilities and love.  Your timetable for today is over on Google Classroom. 
 

I am in school today with Mr Gosling so that will be lots of fun.  I am going to try and phone some more of you today and I will be popping into school tomorrow too so hopefully I will get to speak to all of you over the next two days if I haven’t already.

 

The picture is a sneaky preview of your surprise so keep your eyes peeled.

 

Our song for today I only heard yesterday and I loved it. I think the lyrics are beautiful and I hope you do to.

I miss you

 

Love Miss Mills xxx

3.5.20

 

In every time and in every land, there has always been something stronger than magic.  Something that holds the same power as love and rising brightness of joy. It’s like the feeling you get after a long bleak winter, when you see the first spring butterfly dance between flowers.  Or when you go to sleep the night before your birthday with the promise of presents.  Or you catch the scent of the sea and hear it’s crashing waves moments before you see it.

 

It’s something born of moonlight and sunrise that has the same properties as a rainbow.  And the littlest drop of it can steady fear or make something that’s impossibly sad seem ever so slightly lighter.  It’s an energy and a wish and a dream that can make you feel braver.

 

Its name quite simply is hope.

 

Think of all those familiar stories we know and how hope inspired them.  The girl trapped in the tower without freedom or family.  How frightened she must have been, how isolated.  Yet still she stood at her window and sang.  The hope of a better dawn filled her with joy.  So she sang and she sang until her song filled the forest and reach the ears of a traveller passing by.

 

Or the picture of the boy, sitting alone, cutting down a forest of brutal thorns that no-one had ever found their way through before.  It is hope that makes him keep going, believing that he will find the sleeping kingdom beyond the thorns.

 

Imagine the mermaid giving up her tail, finding the courage to venture into the unknown, into a world she’s never seen.  The wonder of new possibilities making everything seem magical, the hope in her heart giving her grit and tenacity so she refuses to ever give up.

 

Hope doesn’t have to be vast or grand.  It’s not a spell.  It’s an enchantment we all already have within us. 

 

On a sad or overwhelming day when everything feels very dark, if you can find just a little drop of hope, a memory of something wonderful, or a dazzling ambition, that tiny drop – no matter how small – will become your guiding star.

 

So when the world seems dark or frightening, look for a single star. 

Make that star a hopeful thought. 

When you’re ready search for another, until your sky is glittered with starlight – full of positive wishes. 

Then the dark won’t seem as ceaseless and out dreams of a new future will be infinite and bright.

Hey Babies,

 

I had such a great day yesterday,  I told you that I was going to make a special delivery to Miss Newcombe, she had no idea it was me turning up on her doorstep until she saw me me from her bedroom window and started waving frantically!


 It was so lovely to see her.  We stayed 2m apart and she opened all her presents on the doorstep. It was so hard not to hug her but so worth the 2hour round trip to see her and make her smile. Thank goodness it was sunny as we had a chat for about half an hour!

 

So that was yesterday but what about today?

What are you up to?
You can still post what you’re doing on google classroom over the weekend.  I love to see what you are doing, it really brightens my day.

 

My plan for the day is report writing and continuing to work on the surprise that I’ve got for you.

 

 I’m really enjoying writing your reports and I’ve decided to write them very differently this year.  As you know Mr Haigh is brilliant at writing and I’m always envious of how he writes his reports so I’ve taken some inspiration from him in the way that I write them.

 

  I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I am enjoying writing them.   As I write each one it reminds me how much I miss each and every one of you and how amazing I think all of you are. 
 

So our song for today we have sung at choir and around the classroom. I can’t take credit for finding it, my best friend introduced me to it and I love it, I hope you do too.

1.5.20

 

Good Morning my precious little ones,

 

It's the first of May!!!!  As I write this to you I am sitting in bed, looking out my window, staring at the beautiful sunshine and wondering what this month will bring.  Last month was full of change and dramatic events, I feel like this month will be full of hope, joy and love. 

 

One thing is for sure it is full of exciting times for lots of my favourite people.  Miss Newcombe's baby is due this month and Miss Baliol-Key turns 40 next week.  Other important birthdays this month include Mr Haigh, Romany, Isla and Emilia.

 

Only one more day of work and then the weekend! I hope you have got some fun things to look forward to.

 

I am about to deliver a special bundle of gifts to Miss Newcombe, she knows something is coming today but I'm not sure if shes worked out that I am the one delivering it!  She lives over an hour away but it will be worth it to see the look on her face and to let her know how much all the staff at school love her.  

 

I also have a little surprise for each of you next week  which I hope you will like, I'm not going to tell you what it is, just leave you wondering, but what I can tell you is that it is meant to show you how much you mean to me.  With that in mind make sure you tell the people in your life how much they mean to you, how much you love them and make them smile.

 

So after all that gushing here is our song for today...

Good Morning Team,

 

On the timetable today is some more addition and subtraction, apostrophes and some R.E work on Hinduism.. We learnt about Hinduism back in the Autumn term so you should be experts in this today.

 

I am back in school on Monday teaching the children of key workers but I will also have some time to give some more of you a call.  It will be throughout the day on Monday so hopefully I will be able to chat to lots of you. 

 

Mr Nicholson asked me this morning  to count how many of you were regularly active on Google Classroom.  I hear from and see work from 11 of you everyday, with another 3 popping in now and again with some work.  That means that there are 16 of you gorgeous ones who I haven't heard from at all.   It would be so amazing if you could get in touch, let us know what you are up to and show us some of the work you have been doing or anything else exciting that you have been getting up to.  There is  no pressure to complete all tasks or to upload everything that you have done but not hearing from over half the class makes me feel a little sad.

 

So I'm setting a challenge for both my regular gang and the rest of you.  If there is someone from Class 6 who you haven't heard from or that you've noticed hasn't appeared on our virtual classroom and you have another way to get in contact with them, see if you can encourage them to get in touch.  Or if you are reading this and think 'that's me!' then get in touch because we all miss you so much.

 

Which leaves me with our song for today which fits your challenge for today.

Hello there beautiful people,

 

I had a brilliant day yesterday because  I got to speak to some of you on the phone, which I loved.  It was so lovely to hear your voices and see what you have been getting up to.   I thought I would share some of their news with you.

 

Ines was the first person I phoned and she told me how much she is missing everyone, Eloise has been building a bike with her Dad and  Holly H was enjoying playing on her Switch which she got for her birthday and said she loved all the cards and messages you had left her on Google Classroom.  Elsie B has been camping in her garden with her family every weekend since the beginning of lockdown.  Emilia was writing a story with her big sister Ellie and Elsie W has made her own paper!  Charlie was feeling a little shy when I phoned so he sent me a very funny video message telling me how his home schooling was going.  Sophie was very cheery as she had just spoken to Isabel on Facetime , as Isabel had some exciting news to share with her...

 

Isabel's exciting news was that she has achieved her pen licence!   As you all know this is a huge achievement  which we would usually celebrate in class together,  I needed to mark this special occasion so I decided to surprise a very shocked Isabel at home!  I arrived with her pen licence and two pens, knocked on the door and I have never seen Isabel so quiet! She didn't know what to say.  I rang her later when she after she had time to recover and she was very excited and told me that she was making slime for her sisters birthday this week.

 

I can't wait to speak to the rest of you, it may take a little time but I will phone all of you I promise.

 

So our song for today is dedicated to Isabel because she has worked really hard for her pen and she really deserves it.

Good Morning lovelies,

 

Here is the timetable for today, sentence work, subtraction and some map skills.  I have also set you a couple of Maths and English games in your 2dos on Purple Mash today.

 

I won't be on Google Classroom this afternoon as I will be in school this phoning as many of you as I can. I'm hoping to be in from about 12.   If i don't get to talk to you today do not worry! I will be phoning all of you but it might take a few days.  Hopefully this is something you can look forward to (I hope).

 

I'll leave you with my song for today and I will speak to some of you later.

Good Morning Bambinos,

 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend and are ready for another week of learning and fun.  I have made you a timetable for today, BBC Bitesize haven't released lessons for the rest of the week yet so it might be a day by day timetable.  Do not worry I will be setting you things to do.

 

I had a great weekend, I finally managed to get hold of some bright red hair dye so I look back to normal and as I sit and type this to you this morning I am also wearing my Elmo leggings, so when I do my walk later people will definitely see me coming!

 

Our song for today is one I sometimes use for tidy up time.  It reminds me of my Dad because he was performed in the show that this song is from and I remember singing and dancing around the house to it.  Enjoy

This morning I want to remind you of a story that we shared together back in September.

 

One day a man was walking along a beach when he noticed a boy picking up and gently throwing things into the ocean.

 

Approaching the boy he asked ‘Young man what are you doing?’

 

The boy replied ‘Throwing starfish back into the ocean.  The surf is up and the the tide is going out. If I don’t throw them back they’ll die.’

 

The man laughed to himself and said ‘Do you realise there are miles and miles of beach and hundreds of starfish ? You can’t make any difference.’

 

After listening politely, the boy bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the ocean.  Then smiling at the man he said ‘I made a difference to that one.’

Hello,

 

It’s Saturday, time for a break from school work and time to fill your day with fun, love and laughter.

 

 What are you going to do with your day? Maybe you will bake, or draw, or play in the garden.   Perhaps you’ll tidy your room, dance around the kitchen or play a game.  You might watch a film, eat lots of cake or go on a walk dressed as a monkey ( like my 7 year old daughter did on Thursday!)

 

However you choose to spend your day make sure

you do something that makes you happy and makes the people you love  smile today.
 

Our song for today is one of my all time favourite songs, I hope you love it as much as I do.

Good Morning Team!

 

Its Friday !!!!! You have made it brilliantly through another week.  Make sure you give your family a big high five and a hug today!

 

So on the timetable today is some Maths challenges, a team work activity and reading Please Mrs Butler.  I remember one of my teachers reading that poem to me at primary school and I loved it, I still do.  Maybe it will inspire you to write your own poems, if you do I would love to read them.  I wrote a poem last week for one of my best friends, it took me an hour to write,  I really loved the final result and so did my friend.

 

Remember I will be on classroom this afternoon between 2pm and 3pm so come and say hello, its a time for help with your work but also for a little chat and I would love to talk to all of you.

 

My song for today is on my running play list from the musical Shrek.  If you want to listen then click on the link

Good Morning gorgeous ones,

 

So your work for today is identifying verbs, ordering numbers up to 1000 and some singing.  

I've really enjoyed looking at all your work on Google Classroom so keep it coming.  Remember I will be on there today between 2pm and 3pm if you need me.  I will reply to you as quickly as I can during the day,  but this hour I will be there for instant feedback if you need it.

 

Some exciting news for you, which i hope you will like is that on Tuesday afternoon I will be starting to phone some of you at home!  Just a little chat to see how you are and what you've been up to.  I'm not checking up on the work you've been doing, just seeing how you are!  I won't be able to ring all of you this Tuesday but I will be contacting you over the next few weeks.  You will be selected at random so hopefully this will be a nice surprise.

 

I know I haven't posted any songs for the last couple of days, but I've got a great one for today.  My job is teaching you, although it's a little different at the moment, but also taking care of your well being and one of the ways in which I do that is to share with you things  that bring me joy and hopefully do the same for you.  So here is my song for today if you want to listen to it.

Hey Team! Welcome to the Summer Term!!!

 

I know it’s not what we thought we’d be doing but we can totally do this and be back together really soon I hope.

 

Check out BBC bitesize for lessons for the next couple of weeks, I’m at school today and we did some literacy work on the Magic Faraway Tree and everyone loved it.

 

I’ve also set you some tasks on Classroom, it’s been a bit quiet on there over the holidays so let’s get chatting again and complete some of the tasks I’ve set you.

 

Our song for today might reflect your daily routines at the moment but remember it’s only a for a little while and we can do this !!!!

Good Morning beautiful ones,

 

You probably know my song choice for today. But I wonder if you have heard this version of it.  It reminds me of my sister as she had it at her wedding.  It was on the radio the other day and I danced around the kitchen to it and it made me smile lots.  I hope you enjoy it.

We’ve made it to Friday!!!! Well done everyone! 

It’s nearly the end of the Easter holidays, I hope you have had lots of fun, fresh air and chocolate.

 

It’s back to home schooling from Monday and Mr Nicholson has got some great stuff for you to get stuck into next week, so just wait for his letter and you’ll see what I mean.

 

Did you clap for the NHS last night? I think it was the loudest I’ve heard it so far, I was out clapping and banging a saucepan with a spoon.  So, inspired by last night is our song for today.  I hope you enjoy it.

Good morning beautiful Class 6,

 

I had a very busy day yesterday, I went and did the shopping and to my surprise I found I could buy pasta, rice and loo roll! Which must mean things are slowly getting back to normal in someways.  
 

Unfortunately the one thing I really need that I can’t find is hair dye, which means my hair is now the colour of straw!


I popped into school yesterday and got to see our gorgeous Ruby which was a real treat, we had a hug from a safe distance of 2m which was so lovely.  I also had a beautiful message from Beth about her letter writing which made me smile.

 

Our song for today is all about being looked after, I miss being able to look after all of you, I’m trying to do it virtually and I hope you can all feel it.   I’m counting down the days til we can be together again.

Hey Team!

 

I’ve woken up in such a great mood today! I think it’s because I took my own advice from yesterday and told the people I love how much they mean to me. 
 

I also did a quiz with my friends to celebrate one of their birthdays and I was the winner!!!!

 

So because of my very sunny mood today our song today reflects that, it’s all about feeling a bit down and then coming out the other side. Maybe you feel like that to?

 

I’ve missed talking to you all, so get on classroom and let’s have a chat.  
 

Eloise is really enjoying the music probably because it’s all musical theatre which we both love! So I hope you enjoy my song for today Eloise!

Hello little ones,

 

It’s been four weeks since we last saw each other. I’m sure you are missing each other and all the other special people in your life lots, I know I am. 
 

The song for today is all about spending a perfect day with your favourite person, who maybe you can’t see right now .

 

 So today’s challenge is to listen to the song, who does it make you think of? Write them a letter or a poem and either post it to them or put it on google classroom for them to read. 
 

Although you may be finding being apart hard, letting the people who love the most what they mean to you will make them happy and you.

Good Morning my beautiful babies,

 

Sorry there were no messages on here over the weekend but the tiny people who live inside the computer had work to do so I wasn’t able to write to you.

 

I spent the Easter weekend baking with Aidan and Gabby. Aidan and I made Easter Egg Cheesecakes, while Gabby and I made Creme Egg Brownies! They were both delicious! I’ve all been running which wasn’t too bad yesterday.

 

The sun seems to have disappeared today, I’m making some bread and the terrible twosome have decided to swap rooms so that will keep them busy this afternoon.

 

I hope you enjoy today’s song choice. It’s one of my all time favourite songs.  The teachers bought me tickets to go and see this musical for my 40th birthday, and I was meant to go and see it next week. I’m sad I can’t but I can still enjoy the music, and you all know how much I love music!

Good Morning my gorgeous tiddly bobs,

 

I hope you are all eggscited about the Easter Bunny coming to visit you on Sunday! I’m really missing all of you and I’m thinking about you a lot.

 

I’ve started running again, which is hard work but my aim is to be able to run around my whole village by the summer! I’m sure you’ll know that I wouldn’t be able to do that without my music playing so I thought I’d share with you one of my favourite songs to run to at the moment.

Morning Team!

 

Another glorious day of the Easter holidays 🐣 

I hope you are enjoying the activities on google classroom, I’m trying to make them creative and not too stressful. I love it when you post what you’ve done and send me messages it’s really brightens my day. We are only missing a few team members from our virtual classroom so if any of you are in contact with Sophie, Romany, Isha, Logan or Holly and Oscar then see if you can encourage them to join so we can all be together.

 

Mrs White has set up a Science classroom on google I’ve put the password you need to join on our page, I know she would love to hear from you.

 

Have a fabulous day babies 

 

Love you millions and miss you squillions

Good Morning babies!

 

I hope you all had a lovely weekend enjoying the sunshine in your gardens!  I've started running again which was really hard but also really great in the sunshine.  The village that I live in  has started a 'Bear Hunt' , some houses have put Teddy Bears in the windows for children to find when they go on their daily walk, is anyone doing that where you live? When i took Gabby and Aidan out for a walk on Friday we found 100 Bears!  We really enjoyed finding them and they made us laugh, which is really important at the moment.

 

I'm in school today with Mr Gosling, it's going to be a quiet day as we only have two children in but I know that Mr Gosling will provide all the entertainment!

 

I hope you've been on Google Classroom to check out my latest activities to do, Bruce also gave us some great Easter craft ideas that maybe you could try this week.

 

Stay safe, I miss your gorgeous faces.

Happy Saturday my darlings!

 

Sorry I didn’t write to you yesterday, but in the words echoed from Mr Haigh’s class page I needed to step away from the computer for a bit, I feel better for it.

 

I’ve set some creative tasks over on google classroom today if you fancy some weekend creative fun!

 

As you know I love music and I thought that one of my favourite songs seemed apt today.  So I’ll leave you with these lyrics and look forward to seeing you on google classroom over the weekend.

 

Love you babies, Miss Mills xxxx

 

You're not alone
Together we stand
I'll be by your side
You know I'll take your hand
When it gets cold

And it feels like the end
There's no place to go
You know I won't give in
No, I won't give in

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you
I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through

So far away
I wish you were here
Before it's too late
This could all disappear

Before the doors close
And it comes to an end
With you by my side, I will fight and defend
I'll fight and defend
Yeah, yeah

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you
I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through

Hear me when I say, when I say I believe
Nothing's gonna change
Nothing's gonna change destiny
Whatever's meant to be will work out perfectly
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

La da da da
La da da da
La da da da da da da da da

Keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through
Just stay strong
'Cause you know I'm here for you
I'm here for you
There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through

Keep holding on

Keep holding on

There's nothing you could say
Nothing you could do
There's no other way when it comes to the truth
So keep holding on
'Cause you know we'll make it through
We'll make it through

Good Morning Babies,

 

The sun is shining and I’m in school today.  So far we have done a work out with Joe Wicks and now we are singing and dancing to different song on YouTube.

 

Today would have been our first performance of Fantastic Mr Fox’s Showcase so you task today is to sing, dance, act all day long!

 

Next term our Geography topic is comparing London and Venice, so can you start to find out some facts about both cities! I will also set this on google classroom so you can share it with me, be creative!

 

I love you millions and squillions

 

Miss Mills xxx

Dear Tyler,

 

Your writing looks brilliant! You're smiling in your photo for me, where is the one eyebrow pose i usually get when I ask for a photo at school?  I'm really proud of you, I know writing isn't your favourite, keep it up! I'm really proud of you!

 

Miss you loads

Good Morning Babies!

 

I’m at school today, so this will be short for now. Please see my post from yesterday. I’ve set up google classroom, so log on and you can chat to me and your friends from Class 6 in a safe space.

 

I look forward to hearing from you 

 

Love

Good Morning my beauties!

 

I hope you are all feeling ready for another great sunshiney day!

 

My first day of home schooling Gabby and Aidan went well. We listened to David Walliams reading Gruesome Gertrude, from his book The Worlds Worst Children’ on his website, he’s doing this every day at 11am.  We drew pictures of Gertrude as he read, definitely going to do that again today, you should try it.

 

Gabby has decided she wants to learn about Dragons so she spent a lot of yesterday writing about them and researching facts in the internet.  Aidan chose to start a project on Mythical Creatures and wrote half a page on the Kraken! Use this opportunity to learn about the stuff you love without me telling you what the topic is or what subject we’re writing about, you choose your curriculum, you won’t get the chance again.

 

The scavenger hunt I made up went well, although it took Aidan nearly the whole walk around our village to find the number 53! There were no houses with that number and eventually he found it on a drain cover!

 

We are in our P.E kits ready for Joe Wicks at 9.

 

Our creative challenge today is going to be to turn a precious toilet roll into a creature! I’ll post pictures when they are done.

 

The radio is on constantly in my house, as you know I can’t work without it! I highly recommend Classic FM for work time and Encore Radio for free time if you love musicals like me!

 

Love ya babies

Good Morning lovelies,

 

Word of the day is ‘gingerly’ find out what it means and use in some writing today and conversations you have (I’ll give you a little clue...I’m not describing Eloise!)

 

Learn your 2 x table so well that you can answer it like you answer your name, without thinking about it, parents can fire questions at you at any time and in any place so be ready.

 

Find out about Palm Sunday and create a comic strip showing what happened.

 

Go for a walk in the beautiful sunshine and see if you can find... a feather, a stone shaped like a heart, something that begins with P and something pink.

 

Today is my first day of home schooling my two children so wish me luck!

 

Have a wonderful day! Miss you millions, love you squillions, be safe babies!

Good Evening Class 6,

 

I’m sorry for being quiet in here for the last two days but I’ve had a cold and have been sleeping lots... feeling much better now and I promise to write to you everyday like I said I would.

 

I hope you’ve been out in your gardens in this lovely sunny weather and using your Art  books to draw all the beautiful plants, flowers and animals that you’ll be able to spot now that spring has begun to appear.

 

Be good, read before bed and I’ll do a bigger and better letter tomorrow.

 

See ya babies! ( whole class replies with ‘We’re not babies!’) 

 

Miss Mills x

Dear Class 6,

The door to our classroom closes on Friday; we don’t know how when it will open again.  So I want to take this opportunity to remind you that we, Class 6, remain a family and a team as we have been since September.  We might not be together but the relationships we have made, the friendships we have built, the hard work we have done and the giggles we have had will remain, no matter how long we are parted.  I have loved every second of teaching you this year.  You are all incredible and I adore each and every one of you.  It breaks my heart that we won’t be together on Monday but I know you will all continue to be amazing and make me proud.  Remember Class 6 is the BEST and always will be.

In the event of children staying at home during normal school time I am offering the following advice and guidance to help them to keep working.

 

Please find below a link to Twinkl website as they are offering free activities for parents to access at home: 

 

twinkl.co.uk/offer

 

Once logged on, you should see a link for home education resources that are year group specific.  

 

 

In addition to this the following are also suggested:

 

1. Read for pleasure. This means there is no expectation to write comprehension questions and answers but children may wish to let me know what they are reading. Again, this can be reported on their Purple Mash Blog.  We have experienced great fun on World Book Day recently and the children can revisit any activities they enjoyed, be that art work, rewriting extracts as play scripts and acting scenes out, reading using expression etc.

 

2. For daily maths practise:

      www.myminimaths.co.uk 

       www.mathsisfun.co.uk

Any of the Y3 units for maths and English on Purple Mash. At this stage, they are all relevant.

 

3. Y3/4 spellings - there is a document attached below, it would be great to practise these spellings with your child. 

 

4. As you are aware, the children have been learning all about WWII and it would be great if they could complete some research or a small project to supplement the learning they have been doing in school.   They could focus on Rationing, the Blitz, Evacuation or an area that they are interested in.   How they present their work is very open and could include: writing, artwork, a blog, a video etc. 

 

5. Artwork - What a great opportunity to get out in the garden and practise those sketching skills- I have sent home their Art Books today so any Art work that they do can be done in there.

 

I shall also set some Purple Mash 2Dos that can be done at any time up the end of the Easter holidays - these will be available from tomorrow and will be updated regularly.

 

If you are unable to access these online activities, please ring or email and I will send some paper copies home.

Welcome to Class 6 

 

Welcome to the SPRING TERM!

This term we will be investigating the question 'What impact did WW2 have on the British People?'

We will be finding out all about How the war began, who was involved, Evacuees, The Home Front and rationing.

 

P.E is on Tuesday and Thursday this term. On Tuesday we will be learning to Dance with coach Michelle and Thursday is Gymnastics.

Please make sure your child has an all weather P. E kit;  t-shirt, shorts, jumper, jogging bottoms, plimsolls, trainers, socks (if your child has worn tights to school) which are clearly labelled.  Please make sure your child isn't wearing jewellery or has tape to cover up earrings and if they have long hair that it is tied back.

 

If you have any questions, worries or concerns please don't hesitate to come and see me.
