Good morning Class Four.
I hope everyone had a lovely bank holiday weekend with your family at home. I expect lots of parents will have to start working again from today so things will feel a bit different again. I had a busy day yesterday unpacking boxes into my kitchen - I still have a few to go, but I'm getting there! In the morning, I walked round Lakeside and saw a family of ducks, the ducklings were so little, fluffy and cute. I did PE with Joe when I got back - it was such a hard one yesterday, I wonder how many of you are still doing it too? I hope it's an easier session today.
In case any of you missed my message from yesterday - I'm wondering if anyone would be interested in writing an article for Mrs Kimble to publish in the Upham Update magazine? It could be about home learning/Easter holidays during lockdown, what you've been up to and how you have been feeling? If you are interested, please can you send it to me by this Thursday as I will have to edit it and send it to her on Friday.
I know quite a few of you have been enjoying bedtime stories with Mrs Soley. She has finished reading Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets now and will be starting a new book now called Return to Groosham Grange by Anthony Horowitz. If you would like to be added to the email list, let us know and she can send you her audio files as she goes.
Have a lovely day, Love Miss Olver x
Sorry this is a bit late - she has only just sent it to me but here is a message from Mrs Soley:
Good morning class 4
I hope you all had a fabulous Easter weekend in the glorious sunshine. We made the most of it and got our bikes out of the garage, we had to wash all the cobwebs off as we hadn’t used them for a few years. It was a bit touch and go as to whether my bike was roadworthy but with a bit of oil and a new pump, it seems to be fine. We have now been out twice around our local roads, still working up to tackling any hills!
As you can see from my photos, I made the mini quiches (which we thoroughly enjoyed) and ate them in the garden for our picnic. I substituted the salsa for some onion so made cheese and onion flavour ones instead.
Our garden has never looked so tidy at this time of year before, Mr Soley has cut the grass twice already and we have ordered some flowers from a nursery (to support their business) and hope to receive them soon.
This week’s recipes include peanut butter, banana and chocolate quesadillas and Nutella brownies.
If you would like to make these you will need:
Peanut butter (smooth or crunchy), chocolate chips/buttons, 1 banana (or other fruit of your liking), tortilla wraps (from the lasagne if you made it), chocolate spread (doesn’t have to be Nutella), 2 eggs and plain flour. Miss Olver will kindly put the recipes up on the website including the methods. I shall be having a go at these later in the week and putting up my photos. Good news! Mr Soley doesn’t like peanut butter so I get to eat all the quesadillas.
Watch out next week for another recipe and some art work for you to try as we start our new topic on the Greeks. I’m looking forward to getting arty again after the Easter break. Don’t forget, if you had a go at making the Easter cards, send us some photos for our gallery.
My last photo is of Jacob enjoying his paddling pool in the sunshine.
For now, enjoy the rest of your holidays and I’ll catch up with you later in the week.
Lots of love.
Mrs Soley x
It's been a while since I put any Maths on here. Have a go at the Easter themed Maths colouring (just be warned, the answers are hiding on the second page, so don't drop down if you don't want to see what picture it makes!).
Sports Dave has set us another sports challenge - this week it is to see how long you can hold the plank position for! Details of the challenge can be found on his page, go to News, Sport and Keeping Active Home Learning, Weekly Challenges. I'll be having a go at it later and will let you know how I get on.
