Monday 20th April Blog

Monday 20th April 2020. Welcome blog. 

Hello Hedgehogs, 

I am very excited to introduce this new class blog. This will be the place where we can stay in contact with each other, where you can upload any amazing things you have been doing during your time away from school and a place where you can ask questions. I really look forward to using it and hearing all about your lives and the great things you have been doing.  For suggested tasks and activities please see the main class page. 

Happy  Monday Hedgehogs.

How are you? I’ve missed teaching you so much.  How are you getting on with your learning activities? Have you had a go at the Lego Challenge? I hope you have had time to practise those times tables and spellings. I am excited to see what you all upload and share with others. Have you been keeping fit with Joe Wicks or just enjoying your time outside in the sun? 

In this time of uncertainty it is hard to always see the positives but I want you to try and think of one good thing everyday. Easter is a time for celebration how was your Easter? What did you do with your family? I spent the day with all of my family, having a really nice BBQ and sitting out in the sun with my dog for hours. It is really nice sometimes to slow down and appreciate the world around us. 

I hope you and all of your family are all still safe and well. I look forward to hearing from you. 

Goodbye for now, 

Mr Ralph

    Hi, Mr. Ralph, how are you? During the Easter holidays, I did some potato printing, two cubs badges, an Easter egg hunt, some cooking, a lot of reading, some cycling, made some smoores in the woods, we made a planter out of an old pallet, looked after the hens and played with Jigsaw, our dog.

    Hello Mr Ralph I have been working hard at my Mums school some of the days, I have been working on my number bonds and I really like reading comprehensions. Everyday I have been conditioning and stretching and tumbling ready to go back to tumble and cheerleading hopefully very very soon. I have to do session on Zoom so they know I am working on my skills. Sometimes I get to play with my brother when he is not playing in his x box or doing his school work. we go for bike rides together. I have been doing Joe Wicks in the morning . I hope it stays sunny so you can spend more time in the garden with your dogs. From very cheeky Daisy

    Hi Mr Ralph, I hope you are okay and I am glad to hear you had a lovely Easter. We made a holiday at home and went camping in the garden. It was great fun but one of our dogs ate our Easter eggs and was sick in the tent! I have been spending time with my family and dogs, have been on lots of walks and bbq's and doing my Cheerleading practice, this week I won first place in my squad for my video challenge and 3rd overall in the whole of Wolverines! That made me very happy. When Coronavirus is over I can't wait to see you again. What is your dogs name? Love Rosie xx
  • Mr Ralph 4 years ago
    Hi Rosie, Thank you very much I hope you had a lovely Easter too. That sounds like an amazing idea a holiday at home how was camping in the garden? What are your dogs names? My dog is called Bailey. Oh no my dog did the same a few Easters ago. Congratulations on your Cheer practice you should be very proud of yourself, keep up the good work! I can't wait for this all to be over and we all get a chance to see each other soon. Miss you Love Mr Ralph

    Hello Mr Ralph, I hope you had a great Easter because I did too. I learnt to ride my bike during Easter on my own without stabilisers. I hope it stays sunny so that you can spend time outside with your dogs. I have cracked your code and really like the message. I am working on the mystery of the missing sword at the moment. I have mostly done maths on my learning. Also in the garden I have been playing with my diggers and making a quary. I’ve also been playing a bit of minecraft. I have missed everybody in my class. From Daniel

    Dear Mr Ralph, I hope you’ve had a brilliant Easter 🐣, I have! I’ve made an airport and runway in our back garden, learnt to ride my bike without stabilises, made cakes and roti in our kitchen and mud pies in our new mud kitchen that Daniel’s Daddy made for us! I’m really enjoying the maths mysteries from Twinkl. I like your doggy, we have a doggy too, called Indy 🐶 Love from Bertie x

Wow! Also lovely that so many of you are enjoying spending time with your families and pets. One of my achievements is that I have officially done the most Joe Wick's PE sessions out of everyone in my household! I have also been busy helping my two children with their home learning, cooking, planting, going on bike rides and discovering new places to go on walks near home.
