A Message from your Teacher…. S2 week 3

What an incredibly busy week you have all had. It looks like you are learning in so many different ways and that is wonderful- what we learn in and from our school work, is only a fraction of what we will need in life. You are all applying the skills you learn in school, into real life situations. There is no better way to make your learning stick than using it.

Across the federation you are using amazing maths measuring and literacy skills when you are:

Writing shopping lists for tigers (Seth)
Writing manifestos for your own political party (Ayrton)
Making your own coins to learn about money (Violet)
Baking chocolate brownies (Ella-Marie)
Making an Ombre cake (Amy)
Making Jelly (Joe)
Creating Victoria Sponge (Eleanor, Camilla & Arabella)
Having a go at Choux Pastry and persevering (Jack)
Making Gorgeous sausage rolls (Harrison)
Producing Sausage and Onion pasties ( Daisy and Evie)
And making Pizzas for tea (Esme and Nancie)
Following recipes, lists and instructions are brilliant for literacy skills. You make me very hungry!!

You are learning so much about Design technology and developing your skills when you are:

Making bridges (River)
Building dens and dams (Casper & River)
Lego modelling (River)
Decorating the house or blanket boxes (Isla and Addie),
Making bird feeders (Hayley & Emily)
Making bird boxes (Sam and Joe),
Making guitars, garages and mazes (Grace)

You are applying your science skills when you:

Look through your microscope (Philippa and Beatrice)
Carry out experiments making light bend (Sam)

You are keeping your minds and bodies active when you:

Walk no matter it if it’s a mile through the woods, around your village (Euan, Cerys, Amy) around Lincoln (Isabelle) or taking part in a 100 mile challenge (Philippa and Beatrice)
Run (Oliver and William, Beatrice)
Play crazy crazy golf (Oliver and William)
Ride and jump horses and ponies (Philippa, Beatrice, Eleanor, Camilla, Arabella and Sophia)
Dance online (Robert, Bella and Elise, Amy, Chloe)
Perform your martial arts moves online (Isla and Addie)
Staying happy and healthy at this time of national lockdown is probably the most important thing you can do every day (and read)

Practising your artistic skills and learning about artists styles is a wonderful way to find calm in the current strange times. I like to knit!!

You create art in so many ways:

Drawing and painting dogs, dinosaurs and monsters (Anna, Lucy and Alex W, Robert and Bella)
Rock painting (Chloe)
Mixed media (Elodie and Elise)
Paintings on canvas (Cerys and Euan)
Learning about Munch (Ethan and Euan M) made me smile. I think his painting ‘Scream’ resonates with many parents and how they are feeling at this time.

Alex your Magic and magic tricks and Thea and Darcy, your happiness in doing all the things that make you smile, are perhaps the most important things we can do for ourselves at this time. When it all gets too much do something absolutely fun for no other reason than it fills you with happiness

I know many of you are working hard on your work packs and are getting into your stride now you are organised which is brilliant –but doing other things each day is what will help to keep you all happy. Only two weeks till half term.

Keep smiling and keep reading

Mrs. Murray


Hello Children

Another week has zoomed passed and I’m sure lots of learning has taken place for both children, parents and staff.  The weather has been wet, windy, sunny and cool but I can imagine that you have either braved the weather and gone out to enjoy the winter air or stayed snuggly and warm in you lovely home. There is one thing for sure, Spring is on the way.  In my garden I’ve got beautiful snowdrops that pop up every year smiling at me on these winter days. Have you spotted any signs that Spring is around the corner?

Ayrton: You look like you are having lots of fun learning outdoors.

Anna: I can see lots of detail on your dog drawing Anna. Did Molly like it?

Adelaide: It looks like you have been up to lots this week and I’m pleased to hear that your mum is learning about farming!

Isabelle: Wow, walking 3.6 miles is a long way on a chilly day but you must have slept well that night!

With love

Miss Somerscales

Hi Boys,

It looks like from your photos you have all had a very busy and interesting week exploring, investigating and building. It’s nice to see you are all getting out and enjoying the fresh air whilst having fun.

Casper and River, I bet you had loads of fun making dams using sticks and recycled water from your garden, you two are clever little beavers.

River, I am super impressed with your Lego model of the Humber Bridge, you and daddy are very clever and very patient. I bet it took a long time to make!

Keep working hard boys and keep enjoying yourselves.

From Mrs. Russell and Mrs. Pollard


Anna, Lucy and Alex it was lovely to hear you are all enjoying having a new addition to your household, Mollie the Jack Russell (I’m secretly jealous).

I think all 3 of you guys are going to be artists.

Anna, I love your doggy picture, have you drawn a picture of Mollie and Teabags? Lucy, your monster picture looks very cute and Alex – wow buddy, I’m very impressed with your mystery object.

Please keep me updated on the Mollie pup dates.

From Mrs. Russell and Mrs. Pollard


Thea what can I say you have been super duper busy this week. We are very proud to see you are enjoying doing your learning at home and having fun with it all.

It’s lovely to see your infectious smile which we are all missing. I can see you are having fun singing and dancing with your little sister Luna.

I bet Grandma’s house is super warm with all that fire wood that you collected in your wheel barrow.

Well done on being brave when you had your injections.

Keep smiling Thea.

From Mrs. Russell and Mrs. Pollard


Hi Girls,

Another fun and exciting week outside in the fresh and windy air.

Arabella every time I see your photos, all I can think is that you are super brave going on walks in a skirt/dress. I’m not good in the cold but I see the cold doesn’t seem to bother you. You are an outdoors kind of girl for sure.

How cool to have your very own course of jumps. I bet you girls are timing each other to see who is getting a personal best in jumping.

Your cake looks very yummy, I have also been trying to bake cakes but I’m no Nigella and even burnt my vegetable soup which was cooking in my soup maker pot!!!

Girls keep enjoying yourselves and say hi to Bramble for me please.

From Mrs. Russell and Mrs. Pollard


Ethan, Euan, Ayrton, Casper and River – You are all having so many adventures and learning lots of different facts about a range of topics – well done, keep it up!

Anna, Lucy and Alex – What amazing artwork you have all done, that has cheered me up this morning!

Thea – You are having so much fun doing lots of different activities. Well done for being brave whilst having your injections!

Elodie – You have created a fabulous picture – it reminds me that Spring is only just around the corner, I already have some snowdrops in my garden!

Chloe – Dancing by Zoom looks like a lot of fun. The rocks will brighten up your garden on ‘dull weather’ days, well done.

Eleanor, Camilla & Arabella – The horse riding jumps obstacle course looks so much fun. I hope you were as successful at ditch-jumping this week as you were last week!

Isla, Addie, Rafi – It looks like you’ve had another great week. I’m not sure I’d be very good at the ‘guess the implement’ game! You’re doing an amazing job with the painting – I have plenty of decorating to do in my house!

Isabelle – How lovely to see Lincoln castle, Lincoln is one of my most favourite places to visit – worth the walk!

Beatrice and Philippa – Yet another active week girls – well done on the running. The ‘100 miles challenge’ sounds very tricky but I am sure you will have much success!

Sophia – Teams has caused me a few problems too Sophia, but I got there in the end. I agree, the tree does look like a hand – well spotted!

Well, haven’t you all been busy again – I love seeing all these wonderful photographs.

Ethan, Euan, Ayrton, Casper and River, I love that you have been outside exploring.  I love an I spy book and have spent many happy hours searching for the things in them so I hope you have enjoyed it too!

Elodie, what a super picture!  You are so talented.

Chloe , you are so creative and I can tell that from the work you have handed in too.  I think I could do with joining in with an online dance class – it looks like fun!

Eleanor, Camilla & Arabella, you have been so busy again!  It is lovely to see you all outside and I think the baking looks delicious as usual!

Isla and Adelaide, you look like you have been having fun as well as completing your school work.  I think I need you all to come to my house to help me decorate as it looks like you are doing a fantastic job.

Beatrice and Philippa, you are always so busy as well.  That pear and chocolate pudding looks delicious.  I am loving the fact you are doing science experiments and using your microscope.  I love seeing the pictures!

Sophia and Henry, it looks like you have been having lots of winter fun outdoors as well. I love the photos of your lovely long walks – it is lovely to see your smiling faces!

Mrs. Smith


Ethan and Euan you lead such busy active lives. You seem to love completing practical tasks and jobs, well done you!

Elodie I think your picture is fab, it definitely made me smile!

Chloe your rock painting looks super! Well done for keeping active with your dance classes on zoom.

Eleanor and Camilla you enjoy such busy lives, well done for getting out into the great outdoors on a regular basis. I am thrilled to hear about the cross country running, I am thinking about running every day in February….do you think I will manage it?!

Isla it is great that you have been busy with your school work. I have full confidence in you teaching Addie her maths!

Beatrice and Philippa I love to hear about your adventures! The challenge that you are doing sounds fab. Having chased Beatrice around the running course at school a lot of times I can fully sympathise with mum finding Beatrice’s running speed a bit quick!! I hope your sheep is on the road to recovery Philippa?

Sophia it is a shame that I missed you on your walk around Kirmington. I enjoyed our chat at your house when I delivered your work pack though! Keep taking good care of Gwenno.

Mr. Marsh


Hi everyone,

I have loved looking at your show and tells, they have given me a much needed smile.
You all look like you have been busy but most importantly having fun.
School is so quiet without you all and I’m missing your beautiful smiles. Miss Somerscales has finally added me to the teams meetings but told me “I can’t be silly 😬🤪”. I am working from home this week so my dog Ted will be making an appearance with me.
Keep up the good work with your home learning packs and keep having fun 😃

Love Mrs. Hogan xxx


Help everyone. You have all been busy again this week and it’s so nice to see lots of smiles.

Euan, Ayrton, Casper & River, you have been busy with your Lego. That is an impressive bridge! Was it strong enough to hold a car? Ethan, what is the most interesting type of wildlife you have found for your book. Aryton, I would love to read your manifesto for America. Perhaps you could send it to Joe Biden!

Anna, Lucy and Alex those drawings are great. Lucy, that monster is very scary. How is your new dog getting on Anna?

Thea, you look to be having a great time with all of those smiles. What a busy time you are having. It must have been hard work pushing all of that wood. Well done for practising your counting, it will help you count the wood for Grandma!

Elodie, what a beautiful picture! It must have brightened up your day. I can’t wait for Spring when the blossom is on the trees.

Chloe, the rocks must have been fiddly to paint on. They look very colourful and bright. The dance class looks fun. You have a nice big dance floor for all of your moves!

Eleanor, Camilla & Arabella, your outside fun must have made you hungry for that lovely cake. I wish I could still jump that high!

Isla and Addie, well done for working hard with your school work. Your walk in the woods looks fun, although I don’t think that I could balance on that log!

Isabelle, it looks like you have had fun on your walk to castle and cathedral. How many ducks did you see on the way? Well done for working hard with your school work.

Beatrice and Philippa, what a lot of exercise! I bet the horses have enjoyed all of your riding. Your cake looks delicious. It looks like you have earnt it!

Sophia, seeing your walks around our local area make me want to get out and explore as well! I agree that tree does look like a hand with a few extra fingers.
