Maths Shed & Spelling Shed NEW!
Good morning Eagles!
I hope you are all well! To help you to practise spellings and maths skills at home we have taken out a subscription to Maths Shed and Spelling Shed. There are lots of games and fun activities to play whilst obviously still learning! To access the website simply go to https://play.edshed.com/ and then enter your username and password. I will email your parents your username and password this afternoon.
Any problems, or if you just want to say hello and tell me how you're doing, drop me an email.
I hope you enjoy exploring Spelling Shed and Maths Shed!
Did you know your local library has thousands of ebooks and audiobooks?
You can borrow them, instantly, for free, using just the device in your hand.
All you need is a free library card; to download the app and then away you go!
As you will be aware, we have just finished our first SATS mocks. You children have been amazing. They are now aware of the learning ahead of them. Please support them by encouraging them to practice using online games. Those which support maths facts and calculation will be great and especially those which support Spelling, punctuation and grammar (spag). I have attached free ones l’ve found here but there are many more apps. which can be downloaded.
Here’s a picture of an antonym and a synonym sorting game.
God and the Big Bang
On Wednesday, we took part in a fascinating day of debate centred around faith and science. We were privileged to be led by 3 fascinating experts in the field of science who led us through ideas about the birth of the universe, the beginnings of life and scientific uncertainty. We all agreed that it was a brilliant day.
Wow, what a fantastic day. This morning we had a wet, soggy but happy time scrambling in a beck. The children squeezed their way through lots of small passages between rocks; slipped their way over slimy stones and put their heads under waterfalls. The teamwork and support of each other was outstanding. Near the end of their beck scramble was a giant boulder that they used as a slide into the water.
After lunch, group 2 took part in a challenging and beautiful mountain bike ride across Danby Moor whilst group 1 went den building in the forest.
Tonight has been hilarious. Mrs Verrill and Mrs Handslip were highly entertained with Boshop Minkton's got talent. We followed this with a camp fire and silly songs and a final game of night group tig. We both agree that this group have been fun, adventurous, supportive of each other and a real pleasure.
We will be leaving East Barnby at 1:30pm and intend to be back at school between 3 and 3:30pm.
Today we went sailing on Scaling Dam reservoir. We were excited to be joined by Sam and Mrs Cowling. Firstly we learned how to build the boats and then were told what to do if the boat capsized. We had fun practising our sailing skills close to the shore; one boat between two. Some of us rather liked being in the water instead of on the water! But eventually we managed to sail the boats expertly across the reservoir like ducks following their mum...sort of. The funniest part for the adults was the return to shore when most of the children 'accidentally' slipped out of their boats!
Tonight we have been sledging. After hot chocolate the children were ready for an earlier night.
Day 2- After a successful night sleep and a hearty breakfast, we were prepared for the day's adventures. We launched our canoes at Ruswarp and spent a hilarious hour getting our paddling strokes correct in order to go in a straight line- mostly achieved! Along the way we saw herons, a salmon ladder and a cormorant; we played ball games in the river and had lunch on 'Lunch Island' before gliding into Whitby harbour.
A large dinner was devoured, dorm inspections carried out by and we then started to think about our John Muir Award. Greta's speech in New York was watched and added a lot of passion to our discussion about conservation.
The children have raided the tuckshop and are now preparing for Silly Olympics. We are all well and looking forward to a day of sailing tomorrow.
We've arrived! We are happy, tired and full. After sorting out dorms, we have spent the afternoon bodyboarding at Sandsend. Mrs Verrill and I agreed that we had never seen so many children laughing their neoprene socks off. They have all eaten well. Tonight they will learn about the John Muir Award and the search the site for aliens...obviously!
What a great start to the year.
We are so excited about East Barnby. For those who couldn't attend the meeting, please don't hesitate to ask any questions. Attached is a kit list for you. There is no need to purchase anything. Your child will be kitted out with waterproofs, wellies etc. They are welcome to bring £5-10 to spend in the tuckshop. Here they will be able to buy sweets or East Barnby gifts if they wish to. We shall have access to the tuck shop on 2 of our evenings.
Please do not bring any other food or snacks; there will be plenty to eat! No electronics please.
We shall be leaving after registration and return to school before 3:30pm on the Friday. If this time changes, you will be contacted by text.
Don't forget to check the class pages each night for an update and some photos of the days adventures.
The Year 6 took part in a Ripon Cathedral Leavers Service today. We were in awe of a amazing building which is 1300 years old and is ours! The children make promises and hopes, displaying them on Rainbows. Four of the girls read John 2 v.1-11 (beautifully). Jesus changed the water at a wedding to the best wine- he can make us the best that we can be too. This was a lovely memory.
Primary Pounds Enterprise Project
I am so proud of our Year 5 and 6 children. They were tasked to raise money for Harrogate based Craft Aid International. The money raised would support differently abled people in Harrogate, Ecuador and Peru. They organised themselves and ran Mad Hair Day, a cake sale and Boshop Minkton's Got Talent! What a brilliant show that was- pictures to follow.
Our children have raised £319.00 to support people in developing skills, purpose and an income.
God uses us to do His work. You are all brilliant and we are all proud of you!
