Hello wonderful Yorkshire!
It has been really lovely being able to chat to most of you on the phone this week and hear your happy, cheerful voices! It really has put a smile on my face getting to hear about the things you have been doing. I know most of you have been getting out and enjoying the sun this week - lots of muddy walks, bike rides, river jumping and exploring! I know lots of you have also been enjoying ice lollies and ice cream to help keep you cool in the sun. I also know many of you have done baking since you have been at home - scones, biscuits, cakes, cupcakes, bacon and cheese puffs etc. so I thought I would get involved and do some of my own :) I also continued doing some drawing this week, although it isn't finished. Another superhero favourite of mine - Ironman! It is half term next week and I hope you all have a really lovely break spent with fun, laughter and time with your families before next term begins when some of you may be returning to school. I just want to take this opportunity to thank you all for your hard work during your time at home and to your families also, for working so hard to support you and continuing to help you learn. You are all superstars and I am so unbelievably proud of every single one of you! Have a lovely half term and I look forward to speaking to you all soon!

This term we have been exploring Shirley Hughes book of poems "Out and About." In English we have been looking at using our senses to describe the things we might be able to hear, see and feel in each season. I have been truly amazed by the descriptive writing the children have produced. In Maths we have been exploring multiplication and division and have begun to explore fractions. In Art we have been studying the artist Andy Goldsworthy and his use of natural materials to create stunning artworks. We have used watercolour paints to create beautiful spring pictures. In Science we have been exploring the seasons further, looking at the tilt of the Earth and the impact this has on the weather we experience during the seasons. We also had a chance to go outside and investigate how our shadows move during the day and why this is. In History we have been researching how the Victorians kept warm in cold weather, the great hailstorm which happened in Tunbridge Wells in 1956 and we have researched Grace Darling and why she is a significant individual of the past.
