Excellent English!

Have a look at some of the fantastic English work that has been completed at home recently…

Completed stories using the dice and story grids. I loved reading how you finished these!

By Cara…

By Benjy…

Well done Joseph for writing a brilliant diary entry focusing on the journey to school photo. I loved reading the events of your day!

Joseph has also written a brilliant book review of an audio book that he has recently listened to. It looks as though he would highly recommend it!

Neptune Capsule information Leaflets.

Well done Zac, Benjy and Darcy for completing these fantastic leaflets! I can really see the time and effort that you all put into these so well done.

What else has happened this week?

Joseph really enjoyed our maths starter – what is the question? He thought of loads of different possible questions which all have an answer of 25.

He also managed to fit all of this week’s spellings onto the scrabble board! Look at how they all link together; well done Joseph.

Zac has been in touch with a new book recommendation for you all. The Space Pirates series by Jim Ladd. He thinks they are books that you will all enjoy. The class list has been updated on our page so have a look if you are looking for a new book to read. Thank you for the great recommendation Zac!

Nathanael wanted to share this limerick with us that he found in a poetry book. The book is full of lots of funny limericks that he and his family all really enjoy. Thank you Nathanael; I really like this one!

What’s been happening this week?

It’s been another busy week of learning at home for Eagle Class! Here are some photos of some of the activities that you have been enjoying this week…

Bun really enjoyed the maths puzzles for our starter activity this week. He worked his way through the mild, spicy and the hot task! Well done Bun, such brilliant work!

Not only has Judah been busy completing his daily Doodle Maths questions, but he has also been helping his younger brother to learn his numbers from 1-10. After teaching him the numbers, Judah says a number and asks him to point to the correct one. What a kind big brother you are!

Maisie has been busy in the kitchen baking again. This time she made a delicious cake all by herself! It looks incredible; I hope she saves us a slice! I think that Maisie will be quite the baker once lock down is over.

To practise their spellings this week, Joseph and his sister used the game Scrabble to spell out each of the words. I love how they have managed to combine their different spellings together. What a brilliant idea! Perhaps some of you may like to give it a go too.

This week, Nathanael has finished the final book in the Little House on the Prairie series! He recommended these books for our class list as he has thoroughly enjoyed reading them. Well done for reaching the end of the series Nathanael; what super reading!

Benjy has been following online drawing tutorials on Art Hub for kids. We were given a sneak peak of one of his drawings on Zoom last week, but he has now sent us a picture of two completed drawings. They really are incredible! Such detail and precision. Well done Benjy. I will be coming to you for some drawing tips!

Keep up the amazing work Eagle Class!

A great start to the week!

It’s only Tuesday and yet you have already been so busy!

Amelia had a go at the kitchen roll art activity. Just look how amazing it is! She chose to use acrylic paints instead of felt tips and it is so effective. She has really thought about the pattern that she has chosen to create. It must have taken a lot of patience and precision; well done Amelia.

Joseph and his sister spent their afternoon making rain gauges today. They are going to collect the data over a few weeks. What a great idea! I look forward to seeing the results. Although, I’m sure we’ll all be hoping that it doesn’t rain too much!

Half Term Recounts

It sounds as if you all had a lovely half term! I thoroughly enjoyed reading your recounts; such beautiful writing. Scroll down to read them…

Bun’s recount…

Claudia’s recount…

Joseph’s recount…

Can you work out what William did in his half term from his story map?

What else have you been doing this week?

Wow! What a busy week you have all had. Lots of fantastic work and fun activities. Scroll down to see what others have been up to…

Nathanael told us all about his Lego Millennium Falcon today on Zoom this week, and today, he finally finished building it! That must have taken a lot of time and patience. He is excited to show you the completed model…

William has done some beautiful descriptive writing. Just look at the language and the adjectives that he has used. He used his plan really well to structure his writing. You can just imagine being there…

Benjy had a go at solving the maths problem this week and managed to find a solution! I love how he used Lego blocks to help him. He has also completed a book review for the book ‘Dawn Wind’. This one is on our class recommendation list. Benjy has very nearly given it 5 out of 5 stars so perhaps some of you would like to read it too?

Joseph has worked really hard on his spellings and writing this week. He has managed to apply the spelling rule to each word and has then put each word into beautifully written sentences. Such lovely handwriting too! Joseph and his sister also had a geography lesson this week where they learnt all about the continents. It looks brilliant!

STEM Activities

Benjy and Zac both had a go at one on the STEM activities this week.

Benjy made a boat using just one piece of paper and paperclips. He then tested it to see how many coins (and nails) it could hold. It looks like it worked well!

Zac carried out the experiment with different coloured ice cubes to see which ones melted the quickest. It looks like it was great fun!

Half Term Fun!

It looks as though you have all enjoyed a well-deserved break over half term. It is so lovely to see what you have all been up to. Here are a few pictures…

Jessica has been busy gardening with her family and doing some lovely arts and crafts…

Judah has been enjoying some time outside climbing trees…

Max and his family enjoyed a lovely day out to Lulworth Cove. He even braved the icy cold sea for a swim!

Descriptive Writing

Eagle Class were given a choice of four pictures to describe in as much detail as possible to create the opening of a story. They focused on the 5 senses to create their beautiful descriptions.

Here are the choice of pictures. Can you match the descriptions to the correct pictures?

Well done everyone!

Writing Persuasive Letters

I thoroughly enjoyed reading all of these persuasive letters that you wrote to people who inspire you. If I received one of these letters, I would without a doubt come and visit St. Philip’s. Scroll down to read them for yourself… they are incredibly persuasive!

Benjy wrote to Steve Backshall…

Darcy wrote a letter to the singer, Mabel…

Finley wrote to Sir David Attenborough…

Joseph wrote to the creator of his favourite games, Mr Miyamoto…

Max wrote to Marcus Rashford…

William wrote to Owen Farrell…

Finishing the week on a high!

We have reached the end of another week! Here are some photos of the activities that you have been doing at home to finish off the week. Have a look and see what others have been up to…

Zac completed the STEM activity to build a bridge that was strong enough to hold a car toy. His impressive bridge was made out of Kapla blocks and it looks great. Well done Zac!

Amelia carefully followed the recipe that I posted to make some delicious flapjack. She chose to add some raisins as an extra treat! Well done Amelia, it looks delicious. Now for the best bit… eating it!

Joseph has written this fantastic poem – My Little Flower. He spent time typing it up on the computer and chose the font, the layout and the pictures. It is so beautifully written Joseph; I thoroughly enjoyed reading it. Well done!

Working hard…

Edward was really pleased with his work on our word of the week – inspire. He has thought of some brilliant synonyms and antonyms and four different suffixes to add to the root word to change its meaning. He also completed the extra challenge and found the second meaning for the word inspire!

Bun has also been working extremely hard on his writing this week. He has been practising the spelling rules and applying them to his writing. Well done Bun; keep up the great work.

A busy start to the week…

It is only Monday, but some of you have already been so busy!

Judah created a beautiful piece of artwork using sand. I love how colourful it is! And finally, after a very long wait, Judah’s tooth fell out! It has been wobbly since before school closed!

Benjy has been busy designing a rugby shirt for the Bath Rugby competition. It looks like a winner to me!

And Joseph had a go at the science experiment to grow his own rainbow! It looks brilliant, well done!
