It has been lovely to welcome so many of our Pickmere children back into school after another bout of remote learning.


With it being the final week of term, we have tried our upmost to make it as fun and as engaging as possible. We have managed to facilitate lots of group work to ensure that the children have had the opportunity to re-establish their budding friendships and generally just have a laugh together.


In Literacy we have been focussing on building our writing stamina along with the fundamentals of literacy (punctuation, spellings and grammar). Children have written some fantastic standalone writing pieces based on lambing season and a rocky adventure.


In maths children have been focussing on reasoning and reading of TV timetables. They have done incredibly well all around.


Our afternoons have included a variety of practical learning activities. On Monday they had their last lesson with Mr Taylor and completed some Design Technology linking to this term’s topic, what makes Cheshire Special? We had some wonderful Aqueducts that were successful in transporting transport water from one end to another.


On Tuesday the children spent some time in the bushcraft area as part of this week’s Science lesson. We built a small fire before discussing the irreversible changes that took place during the burning stage.


On Wednesday afternoon the children had lots of fun on the field with Mr Freeman as part of their weekly PE session. After this, children took part in the full school Easter service.


After a long and busy week, we finally reached Thursday! In the morning we decorated our eggs ready for the Easter egg roll. We also added to our sketchbooks through creating some funky Easter Bunny designs using different types of line. In the afternoon we learnt all about Easter Friday and the importance of why we celebrate this day.


We hope you all have a wonderful Easter break. I think we certainly deserve this break more than ever. With restrictions gradually easing across both England and North Wales, we hope you manage to make lots of happy memories with friends and family.


Take care,


Miss Wild, Miss Wood and Mr Ashworth
