Good Morning folks, how are you? Firstly, thank you to everyone who has written to me at school, it's been great to read about everything you have been doing. 

 

Here's what I'd like you to have a go with this week. I will add the second part of your challenge here on Thursday but for now this is what Id like you to work on every day:

 

Every Day:

English - WRITING. I would like you to begin your own diary. Diaries were first written by the Ancient Greeks and Romans and those in the Middle East, they are an important historical record of the personal lives of ordinary people, their opinions and feelings. It's time to start your own! Find an empty notebook and put today's date at the top and before you go to bed write about 100 words about your day, What you have been doing? What is your opinion about things? What do you feel about things? What thoughts have you had? 

There are no right/wrongs in your diary it is personal to you but you should aim to:

  • use your best spelling, handwriting and grammar. 
  • use lots of personal pronouns (I, me, my, we)
  • use past tense as you are writing about the recent past.
  • write about your opinions, thoughts, feelings.
  • describe people, places and things.
  • use informal style (imagine you are talking to your friend)
  • organise events into paragraphs

Maths - Please click on the link below!

Science - This week you have a choice again. Maddie and Greg's are still doing live science sessions 11am daily. Or... The Wildlife Trusts are running a 30 days wild challenge - How are you getting on with your wild challenges? Remember your challenge you to do something 'wild' every day during June. I have attached a set of 'wild cards' so you can choose something to do and note it on your challenge sheet. DO something small every day. 

 

Other things to do this week:

Monday - Topic Challenge This week you will begin a new topic which is VERY important to your work when you return to school. Download the first challenge and have a go.

Every Day:

The Wildlife Trusts are running a 30 days wild challenge - a month to appreciate and enjoy our wildlife and wild spaces (this may be your garden).

log on details: mrs p's readers password: Proudfoot

 

At some point this week also have a look at the 'Lockdown Learning' picture - what do you think? I would like you to make a list of everything you have learned. It could be things like: 

I have learned to be patient with my brother.

I have learned bake a cake. 

I have learned about how to use a bank card.

 

What was the first animal in space? The cow that jumped over the moon!

 

Aside from that have a good week - I'd love to know what you have been up to, why not write me a letter (you may get one back!)

Mrs P

25.5.20

Hi folks, it's HALF TERM can you believe it? This week I would have been doing lots of preparation for our wonderful residential to Northumberland! I'm still gutted about that!

 

Well...with the outdoors and adventure in mind this week I will be having my own adventure in my little garden. The picture below is my tent where I spent last night, it even had fairy lights and bunting to decorate it! I won't be setting work this week because you all deserve a break - you have done such an amazing job at home (parents too!). I would like to challenge you to go on your own personal adventure - spend one (or more) nights somewhere different. If you have a tent and a garden why not pitch it, what about making a den somewhere else in the house and sleeping in it (NOT your parents bedroom!!).

 

This Sunday is Pentecost Sunday (31st May). Why not look the story up in your Bible; it's in Acts 2 V1-12. It is when we think about the Holy Spirit coming onto the disciples with tongues of fire. I have a attached a pack full of lots of fun ideas for you to do if you would like. You will remember the symbols of Pentecost are fire, wind and the white dove. Why not create a banner for your bedroom - there are some ideas in the pack. 

 

Enjoy a wonderful week. I will be back in touch next Monday 1st June with more work for you while you are at home. 

 

What’s worse than finding a worm in your apple? Finding half a worm.

Happy Pjamarama Day everyone. Have a great day in PJ's reading - enjoy some books, comics, newspapers, e-books or poetry. Remember to take photos to bring back to school.

 

I have a few things for you to think about today - have a look at the photos below - what do you think?

 

How can one person make a big difference?

Captain Tom Moore, a 99-year-old war veteran from Bedfordshire recently raised over £28 million for the NHS by completed 100 laps of his garden for his 100th birthday! The information found in the second picture is all about Captain Tom Moore’s incredible achievement. Sometimes it’s not the biggest actions that can have the biggest impact, all the things that we do affect the world around us! Captain Tom didn’t even leave his garden but managed to raise a lot of money and raise the spirits of the nation!

Can we think of anything we can do at the moment to help others? Mother Teresa, a Catholic nun who dedicated her life to helping others said, “If you cannot feed a hundred people, feed one.” Talk about what you think she meant by this? Do you agree?

 

Reflection

However small we think our actions are, we can all contribute to help make a positive difference to the world around us. At some point, to someone or something.

How did you enjoy Maddie and Greg's science on Friday? Mrs Reay told me she loved it! She is fine, she sent me a video she took in her back garden of her cat doing some 'hunting' but I think it's abit too gruesome for you! She thought you could use it to do some writing, instead of me posting it here (it might give you nightmares) why not just have a go at your own storyboard cartoon about a cat and a mouse and their antics! Haha, Mrs Reay will love to see them when we get back to school!

Next Weeks theme is Mini Makers and I'd like you to take part every day. There is something to make every day and each day there will be a list to collect of things you will need for the following day. You have a few things to collect for Monday, here's the list:

Mystery Make 1. - Box (shoe/cereal) - Scissors - Pen/pencil - Tape/glue - Spare card/tubes - Small ball

Mystery Make 2. - Box (large, cardboard) - Scissors - Tape - String - Paperclips (or alternative) - Pens/paper

 

To go alongside that I'd like you to listen or read a story on Oxford Owl called 'Doohickey and the robot. https://www.oxfordowl.co.uk/api/digital_books/1244.html You have the login for oxford owl in your reading record but in case you have forgotten: mrs p's readers / Proudfoot

 

Joke of the day: How did the astronaut serve dinner in outer space? On a flying saucer! 

 

Don't forget BBC bitesize maths and English each day too - I hope you are enjoying them.

Back tomorrow

Good Morning, Happy St George's Day everyone.

 

Why not relax and listen to a short story about St George here: https://www.storynory.com/st-george-and-the-dragon/ Below are three documents for you to have a go at related to St George, one puzzle, one reading comprehension and a crossword. Please choose just one or two of these if you can print them off.

 

I would also like you to keep logging on the BBC bitesize to access their daily lessons.

 

Year 5 - Please try to do the maths activity (multiples and factors which we did before Christmas) and the singing lesson (Mrs R will be pleased) If you cannot print off the St George sheet below please also do the English lesson.

Year 4 - Negative numbers, this is a new one which we haven't touched so it will be tricky but I know you will give it your best shot. You also have a singing lesson. Enjoy. If you cannot print off the St George sheet below please also do the English lesson.

 

Today's joke of the day: 

Why do dragons often sleep during the day? So they can fight knights.

Mrs P

22.4.20

Hi, How are you? I do miss you bouncing into Class and telling me your news! There will be lots to talk about when we get back together won't there!

 

I feel very generous this morning and everyone who logged on to spelling shed and TT Rocks yesterday has earned themselves 500 honey pots each! Well done to you all, you are doing so well! Who knows if I will be feeling as generous tomorrow!

 

Today I'd like you to get creative, I challenge you to represent all the people (and animals) who live in your house in some way but NOT in a drawing. You could make stick people, Lego people, fork people - be creative. Please take pictures, I would love to see them when we get back to school. If you wanted to you could write a crazy story about your people too; like David Walliams - ''The World's worst...'

 

O...and I know how much you enjoy supermovers:

Todays joke of the day:

Knock, knock.

Who’s there?

Scold.

Scold who?

Scold outside, let me in!

 

Have a great day,

Mrs P

Hi everyone, how did your BBC learning go? I wasn't very successful and couldn't watch the videos but I hope you had more success!

 

Today, have another go - the lessons are different every day! I've put the link here for both Year 4 and 5.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons


As well as having a go with BBC again Shaun has sent his next PE lesson for you to enjoy:

https://youtu.be/dZ-0NpwWB14 

 

Keep going with TTRocks and Spelling Shed - you never know when I might be feeling VERY generous!!

 

I hope you like today's joke:

I took the shell off my racing snail today thinking it would make him faster. If anything it made him more sluggish.

 

Ill be back tomorrow

Mrs P

 

20.4.20

Good Morning, how are you? 

This morning I'd like you to have a go at some online lessons on the BBC Bitesize website.

 

Year 5, each session is 20 minutes. There are three; similes and metaphors, negative numbers and Ancient Egyptians - You will do a fabulous job as I am confident you know alot about all three.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/zhgppg8/year-5-lessons/1

 

Year 4, pronouns, 4 digit numbers, and history skills. I'm pretty ure these will be relatively easy for you too!

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/tags/z63tt39/year-4-lessons/1

 

 

I am sure you will enjoy learning in a different way and do your best.

 

And finally...today's joke to share with someone at home:

I tried to catch fog yesterday, mist.

 

Have a great Monday - Ill be back tomorrow.

Mrs P

 

 

17.4.20

Good Morning, Bonjour, Buenos Dias, സുപ്രഭാതം, Dzień Dobry

 

Thank you to every one of you who have let me know you have been having a go with the challenges I have left - I've loved seeing them. Special thank you to the Year 5 who has been 'eggsperimenting' with parachute eggs from their bedroom window! I loved the video!

 

Those of you who have been working on your TT Rocks should have had a little message from me yesterday! As always I've been giving out honey pots too on Spelling Shed, sometimes I give out lots sometimes less - who knows, you just have to keep doing a little every day - remember 5-10 minutes is enough per day!

 

Today I would like you to do what we do best at St Catherine's and think about someone else, someone who is maybe not as fortunate as you, someone who is missing you, someone who for staying at home will not be easy. Think of someone you have not seen for a while, say a prayer for them but then let's make them smile - write them a letter. You could include: what have you been doing? ask them a question, tell them you are missing them, what are you looking forward to doing when we can get out more, maybe even include a joke to make them smile. Why not draw them a picture of what you have been doing too for them to put up somewhere in their home? 

 

Remember text features: 

your address goes top right of the paper (in capitals)

the date is under your address

Begin the letter Dear...,

Start writing under the name of who you are writing to. 

 

Remember to keep it interesting and fun (you are cheering the person up)

Remember your handwriting and good punctuation

 

Go for it - make someone smile!

 

I hope you enjoyed yesterdays joke of the day as much as Mr Proudfoot did - here's today's:

What happened when the strawberry crossed the road? There was a traffic jam!

 

Ill be back tomorrow

Mrs P

 

 

16.4.20

Hi folks, Thank You so much for those who have sent your work about birds to me - they are fantastic. Don't worry if you haven't - I cant wait to see them when we get back!

 

Year 4 and 5 you are absolutely smashing your spellings on Spelling Shed - have you had any honey pots today? I've been keeping a beady eye on TT Rocks too and I know who has been logging on, well done!

 

Today, I wonder if you fancy becoming journalists and reporting on your time at home. I'd like you to create a news report of some kind for me reporting on what you have been doing. It can be a written newspaper report, a short film made on I-movie or another app, a report in the style of a story. Be creative. What have you been up to? I can't wait to see your creations when we get back to school!

 

I've decided to post a joke of the day too - so you can make someone at home smile! Here's today's: How do the oceans say hello to each other? They wave!  (Mr Proudfoot loved this one!)

More hilarious frivolity for you tomorrow!

 

As always, have fun and take care

I'll be back tomorrow

Mrs P

 

 

15.4.20

Good morning everyone. 

I'm so impressed with your efforts on TT Rockstars and Spelling Shed, some of you have even beaten me this morning to be busy on there! I've given out some more honey pots!

 

How did you get on with Shaun's lesson yesterday? Was it fun? Today, I'd like you to carry on with staying active and create an assault course for someone in your home. You could do it outside or inside just using what you can find around you. (try not to get in the way too much) If you don't have much space you could create an 'ant' assault course in a cereal box.

 

Secondly, I thought you might like to have a go with one or two of the science egg challenges I've attached - just in case, like me, you have plenty of eggs hanging around at home that need using up!

 

Take photos, I'd love to see them when we get back together.

 

I'll be back tomorrow, missing you all loads,

Mrs P

14.4.20

Good Morning everyone, I hope you had a great Easter. I have a couple of things for you to be doing today.

 

1. The sun is shining so I have a challenge from Shaun (PE coach) for you to enjoy today. There will be more of these so keep up to date with this page. Click the link below:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GCB2Kff6-_w&feature=youtu.be

If you want to take photos of what you are doing while being at home I would love to see them when we get back to school.

 

2. While I've been in my garden I noticed some birds doing some furious work to build a nest so I did some research - in my books and online - to find out more about the little birds. I used to love birds when I was younger and this has re-ignited my passion to watch and learn about them. Can you find a creature you have spotted and find out about it? Can you create a report? 

 

My House Sparrow report

3. I have updated the TT Rocks and Spelling shed. I've been VERY impressed with the number of you who have logged on - well done! I've given out some honey pots on SS. I've been very generous, I've given out 1000 to someone for their effort logging on everyday! Ill be giving out more tomorrow. 

 

Have a great day, Ill be back in touch tomorrow with more for you.

Hi Year 4 & 5.

How are you? I had a lovely day yesterday planting in my garden, enjoying the sunshine and cooking a lovely dinner. Today I have so many jobs to do; but I think I will go for a little walk from my house.

 

Today I would like YOU to go to the zoo! Have you ever been to Chester Zoo? I know some of you will have, but if you haven't don't worry - today is the day! They are hosting a live virtual tour visiting lots of different animals-my favourite the Sun bears are on at 2pm! Every hour is a different animal.

https://www.chesterzoo.org/

 

They have lots of new activities for learning at home too - have a look at the link below, you should find an activity called 'How to make a Toad abode.' I thought our new friend Terry might like that!

https://www.chesterzoo.org/schools/resources/?search=&stages=7-11&types=at-home&subjects=science&topics=uk-wildlife

Enjoy.

 

Easter is nearly with us, today is the last day of term!

 

Palm Sunday is Sunday 5th April

Good Friday is Friday 10th April

Easter Sunday is Sunday 12th April

 

Can you find out a little about the work of Cafod - have a look at the link below where you will find lots of games and videos about our wonderful world.

https://cafod.org.uk/Education/Kidz-Zone

 

I will be back here on Tuesday 14th April. 

Please don't be like Violet Beauregarde and eat so much (chocolate) you pop!

26.3.20

Good Morning Year 4 & 5. 

The sun has been really shining hasn't it, I hope you have been enjoying it a little. I have been in my garden quite a lot and yesterday I came across a creature I have never seen here before, I was quite excited! I found him (I don't know it was a male but I named him Terry so he became a boy!) under my green recycling bag. I think he was there because it is cold, dark and damp. I have no idea where he came from or where he has gone since. I resisted taking him somewhere as I concluded he could find his own way. What creature do you think he is? I took a photo for you...

It's a toad! A big one too - he was about 10cm long! I've been wondering what you have been finding in your garden? Have you seen any new creatures or any favourite animals? Today why don't you go and have look under stones, in crevices, behind plant pots and see what you can find. Why not create a table to record your findings (i.e. how many woodlice, how many slugs)? You could even draw one. Think about the place you find it. (habitat) Why does it like it there? It will probably like the conditions - Terry likes dark, cold and damp conditions. 

Meantime I have a little BBC video for you to watch to explain the difference between a frog and a toad.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/clips/zf3fb9q 

Enjoy. Ill be in touch again tomorrow.

Hi Year 4 & 5, 

How are you doing? Did you listen yesterday to David Walliams? Remember he's on every day at 11am so you could listen to today's story too.

You know how I love poetry so today I have a couple of poems for you to listen to by the poet Allan Ahlberg. One you will definitely recognise because I have read it to you many times called 'Please Mrs Butler' (I love it) and a second less well known called 'The Dog in the playground.'

https://clpe.org.uk/poetryline/poets/ahlberg-allan

Why don't you could even have a go at writing your own poem - you're all great poets!

Ill be in touch tomorrow.

Mrs P

24.3.20

Hi Year 4 and 5,

I hope you are well, I've been thinking about you all this week, wondering how you are at home?

I know how much you enjoyed me reading the 'Worlds Worst Teachers' by David Walliams so I thought you might like this. David is reading one of his new stories everyday at 11am; today's story is 'The Terrible Triplets' I think it sounds great - I'll be listening!

Enjoy

Friday 20th March Year 4 & 5 Letters to Coldspring's

After hearing the residents at Coldspring's Residential home are not allowed visitors (Mrs Reay's Grandma is missing her visits) we decided to write them letters to cheer them up. Thanks Year 4 and 5, I'm sure you made the weekend better for some who are missing friends and family. Thanks Year 6 for making palm crosses to add to them.
