The final half-term for my 6’s ….leavers preparations…Work for week beg. 1st June 

Hi everyone! I do miss you all. Hope you are all keeping safe and enjoying this wonderful sunshine. I don’t know how long it is going to stay with us, so make the best of it.


And now a musical interlude by Millie in D… Sonatina number 4,  by Thomas Attwood.


I love it Millie! More please!!


And now, Ruby’s advice on staying safe!

“Saving Water.
97.5% of water is in seas and oceans, but it’s too salty for humans.
The remaining 2.5% is in the ice caps. We need the tiny bit useable as fresh water (a natural resource for life).
What Should We Do?
Turn off taps; when you brush your teeth, dont keep the tap running!
Boil what you need;
Shower with less; next time you shower turn the water off while you put washing products on.
Get a low-flush toilet;
Steam your veggies;
Reduce food waste and reuse;
Catch rain water;
No more washing up; fill up your dishwasher.
Be plumbing prepared!”

Thanks Ruby! Keep the pics of what you do coming! Stay safe and hope to see you soon!    Mr Steane


Charlie attempts to fly…

Charlie has been busy inventing and making at home. Not cute animals this time, but testing a flugtag!

Following on from the homework set about a flugtag, Charlie decided to try making his own.
It didn’t make him fly like he first thought it would but he had great fun making and trialling it. Excellent work Charlie! Can’t wait to see what is next!  Mr Steane

Video Game Review


29th April  ….Millie Gets Creative

It is great to see that Millie is keeping her creative talents going at home! She has been giving piano lessons to her gran and they hope to duet soon!  I miss Millie’s lunchtime renditions at the piano – “music to eat food by”.

She has also been working on her artistic skills with this fabulous piece. Keep it up Millie ~ I want to see more and I await Ruby’s creations!

Literacy Picture News Paper – 27th April




Year 5 and 6 Topic Work

Hello Y5 and 6,

It seems so long ago that we were last in the classroom. Miss you all. I hope that you are all staying safe and enjoying the wonderful weather we are having. Y6, don’t wear out your leavers’ hoodies just yet – we may get the chance to be back in before summer!

I’m sure the mice are partying whilst we are away.

I’ve set work on Education City every week for you to do – please have a go at the activities (when the website isn’t crashing) and I can see how you are doing, and also work through the folders as well as the links on the website to keep your mind active.

If you have any pics for me to see what you are up to, email them to me and I can get them on here. Millie and Ruby, I haven’t forgotten the promise of food and Harry, I can’t wait to get the garden back in order. I have a solar water feature for it.

Maybe some spring artwork? Tips on keeping happy and healthy in lockdown? Any of you gardening? Playing instruments?

Maybe we could have a virtual pupil of the week award if you send me enough pics of what you are getting up to so I can choose someone each week.

Finally, lets hope to meet up and be back in school soon, but in the meantime, work when you can, enjoy your families and stay safe.

Mr. Steane
