It's Friday! 15/05/2020


I hope you have all had a lovely week. It has been great being able to chat to most of you and your parents on the phone this week. I am also looking forward to reading your STEM's today knowing how hard many of you have been working on them. 


This week for me has involved being in school 3 times, looking after those who are in, whilst continuing to plan for future lessons. I have also been continuing to take long walks in the afternoon to keep up my exercise. I also attempted to learn how to fly a drone, with very limited success, learnt very quickly never to fly in windy conditions.


Looking forward to speaking to you all again next week. Rest well, stay safe and keep exercising Berkshire!


Mr Davis

We're going on a moon hunt.

Another end to the week... 8/05/2020

It has been great continuing to meet over teams. Please remember the rules and ensure you keep to them. 


I have been busy attempting to solve many a mystery, not only in attempting to decode science planning, the things you or next year's Year 5 will learn look very exciting. Seeing as Monday was May 4th. I have chosen to spend the evenings recently watching The Star Wars saga in chronological order, starting with the Phantom Menace and ending with The Rise of Skywalker, with Solo and Rogue One in between. It was very helpful for planning the Earth and Space Module, well somewhat. 


My bank holiday weekend is going to be spent attempting to fly a drone, previous test flights have been very unsuccessful, wish me luck.


Have a lovely weekend,

Speak to you all on Monday,

Mr Davis

Happy Friday Berkshire!

It has been great chatting to most of you through Teams this week, it does not make up for not seeing you all though. I hope you all have been able to access the work through the Oak National Academy website, I know those who I have talked to have been enjoying the work so far. I also look forward to seeing your STEM assignments!

This has been a busy week for me, I have spent 3 days this week in School, supporting the children here. As well as planning for next year on my two days at home. It has been great to be back at school, although in a different classroom with different children and completely different work...


I shall leave you with this... 

There's a one-story house where everything is yellow. The walls are yellow. The doors are yellow. Even all the furniture is yellow. The house has yellow beds and yellow couches. What color are the stairs?


Have a lovely weekend!

Mr Davis

My company yesterday, I think they enjoyed my explanation of how to format tables on word...

First Week Back!


Hello Berkshire,


The end of another strange week.
For me it has been one of going through all the science planning for year 5 and creating a lot of really exciting and interesting investigation lessons. Although it has been a lot of hard work, it has also been great fun thinking about teaching you some of those lessons. Which I must also add has made me miss all of you even more.

I really hope you are all safe and well, keep up your Joe Wicks, try something new and most of all keep yourselves entertained and I look forward to seeing your STEM work appear on teams.

Hope to see all of you soon,

Mr Davis

I was called down from our home office to this...

Welcome back Berkshire!


It has been a strange few weeks. I hope you are all safe and well!

I have spent the time decorating and organising my house, whilst also introducing a new member, Arlo the Ragdoll kitten. 

The most challenging situation I have faced over the past few weeks has been attempting to stop Xanthe eating all MY(!) chocolate... 

Keep safe Berkshire, stay active and enjoy this time.

See you all soon,

Mr Davis.
