Good morning Ellie and happy birthday to you. I hope you have a great day even if it is a little different to the usual birthdays. Stay safe.

Apologies to Krystian, I missed your birthday last week. Here’s a belated shout out for you. Best wishes from

Mr Doidge.


Tuesday 31st March

Here’s Ellie again working on her English skills before moving onto learn how to make healthy crisps. Well done Ellie, it’s good to learn life skills as well as working on your school work.

Once again, here’s Kevin working hard on a SAT Buster 10 minute test. Well done Kevin.

Stay safe everyone.

Oh Year 6, you lucky people. Look at the activities you can access on   www.kidadl.com. If you run out of school work to do, there’s lots of activities for you to do on here.

Here’s Ellie enjoying practising her English skills and creative writing. Well done Ellie, as usual you look to be working hard. I’m sure Mrs Tolson will be pleased that you’re working on your English. You will be able to use your creativity to help you to write your RAP.  It seems like such along time since I saw you after your accident. I hope your arm is getting better. I hope to hear from you again soon. Take care and stay safe.

After all his hard school work, Thomas gave Mrs S a helping hand cleaning the windows. Great work Thomas!!

Keep up the good work Thomas. It’s great to see you continuing your learning even though you’re not in school. It would be nice to hear from you as well to let us all know how you’re getting on. Come on 6SB, let’s hear from lots  more of you! Stay safe all of you – Mr Doidge

A nice idea from the Mini Vinnie Society for you to create your own prayer.

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all safe and well. Mrs Page’s class are putting us to shame with their posts compared to ours.

Well done Thomas, keep up the good work. I’ve heard a rumour that Thomas is also going to be making a model as part of his Topic homework. I can’t wait to see the pictures Thomas.
