Great to see the passion for learning is still continuing in week 2 of home schooling. Keep going everyone, we’re really proud of you all.
Here is a snap shot of the learning that has been taking place at home on Tuesday and Wednesday. Look at the creativity . . . . (Mrs T doesn’t have favourites but the F.A.R.T.S. school logo is genius!).
Check out Twitter for even more pictures!
It has been a pleasure to see all the mini classrooms being set up around Maple Cross. There are also lots more on our Twitter account. Proof that a school community is more than bricks and mortar. Keep sharing your photos, story videos and everything else! It is bringing a smile to all our faces.
We’re not sure whether today is Y6’s last day or not, but here’s a cool way that, whether you’re at home or at school, Y6 can all share their memories of their time at Maple Cross.
Whatever you’re connection with our lovely Y6 class, we’d love to hear your thoughts too! Just press the pink + button in the bottom right corner to start!
This morning Yr1 were asked how they are preparing to continue their learning at home. Their responses are inspiring . . .
“When I am home on Monday, I am going to wear my school trousers to help with my learning.”
“I am going to do my home learning with mummy.”
“My nanny is going to set up a school for us.”
“My mummy is going to wake me up at 9am and do some exercise.”
“Me and mummy are going to make a sign for a school at home.”
“We are going to make an office in the middle of the room.”
“I am going to make a school in the whole house.”
“I could get into my school clothes and do some learning and I will know when the time is for lunch, I’m going to make my house like Maple Cross.”
Nursery sowed some sunflower and tomato seeds two weeks ago – the plan was to watch them grow. As the children can’t be at nursery at the moment, a virtual update is necessary. Nursery if you’re watching, I’d love some comments on what you think. Watch this space for further developments!
This afternoon, Year 2 and 3 enjoyed an afternoon of art. We learnt how to sketch 3D objects by observing 2D shapes and lines, using guidelines and adding tone.
We used an everyday object to practise these skills and gave feedback on each stage of our sketching process.
