 Mrs Payne teaches Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Mrs Wallis teaches on Thursday. Along with 34 incredible children, we are

Morpurgo Class.

SELF ISOLATING

Once a child has tested positive, or has been found to be in contact with someone who has tested positive, we will deliver a workpack. It will contain an exercise book, a White Rose Maths book, a Read Write Inc book and plain paper. Daily activities will be set on the Isolation Rainbow. Obviously, if your child is feeling unwell, we do not expect them to tackle home learning.

Contacting Us

If you would like to contact Mrs Payne or Mrs Wallis, please email the learningathome.034@educ.somerset.gov.uk email address or phone the office. Thank-you.

We would be delighted if you could email us photos of work you are particularly pleased with. laugh

HAPPY NEW YEAR

I hope you managed to keep your handmade Christmas gift well hidden until Christmas Day. I'm sure your beautiful weavings were very much appreciated. You were all expert wrappers and gift card designers. Well done!

I am delighted with my woven gift. smiley Thank-you Eliza.

           

PLEASE KEEP SENDING IN YOUR WORK. IT MAKES US SO HAPPY TO SEE IT.

Autumn  Term

Here We Are

IT'S GOOD TO BE BACK

 

 

 

 It has been lovely getting to know our new class. The children have coped remarkably well with all the regular hand washing and the new routines that are in place to keep them safe.

At the end of the school day, Morpurgo Class are now lining up outside of the classroom. This means that parents can keep moving through the one-way system and won’t have to stop and wait for their child. 

 

HERE WE ARE

During the first two weeks of term, we enjoyed the Oliver Jeffers book 'Here We Are' This book inspired us to write and create. We wrote some poems and also made an information book about stars and constellations.                                

Playtime Fun!

We have recently had some new playground markings. We were delighted when Ben Fox  from 'Inspired Playgrounds' visited us. Ben showed our Year 5 and 6 Playground Leaders how the markings could be used at playtimes. After some training with Mrs Fielding and Ben, our Playtime Leaders were ready for action. They introduced new games and activities to everybody in Year 5. Great fun was had by all. 

RIDDLES

Before the half term break, we had a busy session making a pocket-size book. The aim was to fill the book with riddles during the half term holiday. Morpurgo Class set to work and filled their book with some real brain teasers. Once back at school, we had fun trying to solve each riddle.

Christingle

Today, Reverend Phil sent every child in the school a lovely stripy paper bag with an invitation to the Christingle Service at St Peter and St Paul Church on Sunday 13th December. Excitingly, also inside the bag was a Christingle 'making' kit.

 

During the service on Sunday, Reverend Phil will explain about what the Christingle stands for and means. If you can't go to the church, the service will be recorded  on the St Peter and St Paul, Bishop's Hull,  Facebook page.

 

We discussed Christingle in the classroom. Click on the document for more information.

 

 

The Christingle Service is now on the Church Facebook page and Reverend Phil explains in a really clear way what all the parts of the Christingle mean to Christians.

 NEWS FLASH 

I have bought a copy of the new Michael Morpurgo book. The book was inspired by an event in Michael Morpurgo's childhood. It certainly lives up to expectations and I can't wait to read it to you next week.

 

We have now read the book and written  some reviews. 

 

Christmas Party 2020

Despite having to stay in our bubble and sit in rows, our Christmas party was a great success. We had oodles of fun. What a super class!
