Tom found a fox skull out on a walk! He took it home, and cleaned it, then did lots of research about it. Last week in Dahl class we were being journalists and Tom decided to write his article about his unusual and fascinating find. He interviewed his family about it too, and include a quote from his Dad in the article.

This week in Lewis class and the last week of our topic Hopes and Dreams, we have been chefs. Part of our Design and Technology activity was to help or cook a meal for our families. Ralph did an amazing job cooking Frittata Egg Muffins and he even wrote a review. Well done Chef Ralph!

On Tuesday 19 May 2020 I cooked dinner with help from my parents. I made frittata egg muffins. I had never made dinner before.

The ingredients I used for my frittata egg muffins were eggs, tomatoes, mushrooms, spring onions, bacon and grated cheese. I had to chop all the ingredients apart from the eggs which I had to crack and mix up and the cheese which I had to grate. The mixture was then divided into a muffin tray and then was cooked in the oven for about 25 minutes.

Unfortunately, I was not very keen on them because I didn’t like the egg taste, but I really liked the bacon in them. My parents loved them. My mum didn’t have bacon in hers because she is a vegetarian.

Hallie in Lewis class made Mincy Nachos, her dish of the week for her family and she reviewed her meal too. Her meal looks amazing and I am sure it was delicious! A future career as a chef maybe Hallie

Well done Alfie (King-Smith Class) who has written a piece of persuasive writing in geography. I chose it because Alfie did such a good job of persuading me to live in a small town, rather than a big city. Well done Alfie!

This autobiography from Mia (King-Smith Class) made everyone smile and really impressed me because:

  • It includes everything that I would expect to see in an autobiography
  • I can tell that she has put lots of time and effort into completing it
  • I loved all of the photos that she added to her piece of work
  • It has helped me (as have all of the autobiographies I have received) to get to know her

Please see below a piece of work from Gabriel (King-Smith Class). I have chosen this piece of work because Gabriel has really thought about how the main character would have felt in the story and has demonstrated this while writing in role as her. Well done Gabriel 🙂

I was very impressed to receive this email from Lizzie, in my class, as an example of a model pupil when it comes to completing all home learning set, communicating this to me, making advances in her learning and getting out and about to. I could not ask any more of any pupil! 

'Dear Mr T, I've just got back from a 6 mile walk to Wilmington and thought I'd better let you know what I've been up to this week.  I have done all the work set and uploaded my report to my work.  Jimbo is marking my Maths sheets but I can't wait all night for him to finish but I've done them all and I also did some my maths lessons on the bits I didn't understand about internal and external angles and I am an expert now!!
