14th July 

Today we say goodbye to our year 6 children. It’s not how we would normally say goodbye, but we wanted them to have a treat on their last day, so it was McDonalds for lunch. We are so proud of you all and will miss you. Good luck at your new school in September.

 

Week Beginning 6th July 2020

Hello class! It was great to see you all in school and catch up on how you have all been! I’m so proud of the way you have all helped each other and been so sensible in school in these strange times.

Take care and I will see you all next week.

Ryan has been thinking about the #blacklivesmatter issue and completed this piece of work on the subject. A clear message Ryan. 

Charlie has been testing out his technical abilities with his latest project – a robotic arm! Amazing Charlie!!!! Unfortunately the video won’t load onto the website.

 

 

 

Week beginning 8th June…

Good morning my Y6’s  – I miss you all and hope that you and your families are all keeping well.

Here is a little hello from me. Get those thinking caps on – what can we do for a leavers’ assembly? Work hard if you are in school this week. I will put the rest of your work on later in the week with some videos, too. (Elliot did the filming, by the way.)

Remember that you can email me any work / ideas for what we can do at : bsteane@allsaintsrc.derbyshire.sch.uk

Bobby’s Lava Lamp experiment and Rappin’ Ryan…

Always a treat to see what you are up to in lockdown!

Ryan produced a rap including his mum as part of this week’s online work. Always great to see your work Ryan and get your thinking cap on for the leavers’ assembly!

 

Bobby made a lava lamp as part of his work on different densities of liquids.

Watch the video clip below. How did he do that?  Can you explain how?

 

 

 

 

 

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.

Well, Y6, I can’t believe it – and I don’t think your parents can either – this is the final half term. Although it is not as we expected, we can still make it special. I still want to do a leavers’ assembly of some sort, so I need your ideas as to what or how we could do it in a safe way. Also, perhaps some sort of leavers book?

Here is the work for this week…

Harry’s garden ideas…we may have to create something at St Margaret’s…

These are Harry’s ‘upside down’  cakes. Apparently they are better upside down. Mmmmm.

 

Hi Mr Steane,

Here is my rough garden plan. It includes a vegetable patch, a wild flower section, a medical section and a small fruit tree section. There are also some seats for us to sit on.  Harry

Ryan’s Work Gallery…

Thanks for sending these in –  love the Welsh dragon illustration. It is so good to see that you are keeping your brain ticking over. Your favourite food list is VERY similar to mine!  Take care Ryan!

 

Week Commencing 18.5.20

Hi children,

Here is the work for the week leading up to half term.Have any of you completed any of the garden topic work yet – I’d like to see some!

I will not be setting any work over the half term break; so please, spend time with your family, enjoy their company and take care. I am missing you all very much and hope that we can see each other back at school soon. Remember to email photos of any home learning you have completed – some of you have done already which is great.

Also, remember Y6 children who are going to SPH, register for the Seesaw app if you haven’t already (I know lots of you have) so that Mrs. Urquhart can help keep you up to date with Transition. Every Tuesday, you will get a virtual tour of part of the school and lots of other exciting things too.

Keep safe,

Mr Steane

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.
Why?
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!

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
