A very active day!

Gabriela has been developing her own way of watering her raspberry plants and Kaelan has been doing some tai chi with his brother. It’s great to see how you’re all keeping busy, you’ve inspired me to turn my garden into a golf practice zone!

It’s great to see that Kaelan has also done a really good job at the Edinburgh Zoo task, he chose to write about koalas!

25.03.20 – Edinburgh Zoo!

Good afternoon everyone!

Edinburgh Zoo have put cameras in their enclosures so you can ‘go to the zoo’ without leaving your house! I would like you to choose one of these animals (pandas, penguins, tigers, koalas or rockhoppers) and write a description about them in your exercise books. Remember to describe the animal’s appearance, how it moves, what it eats and anything else you notice. Include as many adjectives and expanded noun phrases as you can! For an extra challenge see if you can include a simile (the tiger’s teeth are as sharp as a…)!

Click here for the link to the zoo’s live enclosures.

Please email your descriptions as well as any other updates to me at admin@stcolumbas.bradford.sch.uk – I’m looking forward to reading them!

Hello 3 Hazel!

I just wanted to say how incredibly proud I am of how everyone in our class stayed so positive last week and made such a brilliant effort to stay happy and focused. I feel very lucky to be working with such a brilliant group of children!

I will be posting updates on this page weekly (at least) to help us all stay in touch and I will be posting pictures, videos and activities so please keep checking.

Have a go at this Maths problem based on our work on perimeter:

Whitney is measuring the perimeter of a square.
She says she only needs to measure one side of the square.
Do you agree? Explain your answer (“I agree/disagree because…”).
Are there any other shapes this might work for?

I would also really like you to stay in touch with me to let me know how you all are! You can forward things to admin@stcolumbas.bradford.sch.uk and let them know to pass your updates on to me. It would be great to see how you are all getting along with your packs too!

Best wishes and I hope to see you all soon!

Mr Grant
