And just like that it's February half term! Nunsmere have been working incredibly hard for the past 6 weeks despite learning online.

We have been so proud and continuously impressed by the children's ability to adapt to and engage with their remote learning. It has been wonderful to see the children take autonomy over their studies with their usual bright and enthusiastic approach. 

This week, Nunsmere took part in a Guinness World Record attempt on Safer Internet Day 2021! We made pledges stating what we are going to do to ensure that we make the internet a safer place. They received over 10,000 pledges and the attempt is currently being verified with Guinness World Records so hopefully we will have the results soon! Along with this, we also made posters with loads of great information about how to stay safe when surfing the web.

In literacy this week we have been gearing up for our writing piece, by creating comic strips based on our predictions about what will happen next in our story and also creating our own petrifying villains! We will be using all of our great ideas to write our stories when we are all back in school. We also looked at an Ash Wednesday based reading activity and the children loved sharing what they were going to give up over lent!

In maths we have finished our unit work on fractions (there were lots of cheers when this was announced on Zoom!) and this week we have looked at finding fractions of a quantity using our very helpful rhyme:

"When finding fractions of amounts,

Don't get in a strop,

Divide by the bottom,

and times by the top!"

 

We have also had our usual fun workshops; during art we looked at drawing characters inspired by the fantastic Quentin Blake and in dance we have started a new choreography routine! We ended the week with a fun quiz based on baby pictures of the Delamere workforce!

 

Work for the first week back will be live on Google Classrooms on Friday 19th February at 6pm. Packs will be available for collection between 1pm-3pm on Monday 22nd February.

 

I would like to say a huge thank you to all of the grown ups at home working behind the scenes to make sure that worksheets are ready and Zoom is logged on, I know this hasn't been an easy half term. Without your continued support this transition would not have gone as smoothly as it has, so thank you. 

 

Wishing everybody a happy, healthy and restful half term,
Miss Bate and Mrs Campbell
