This week has been Mental Health Awareness week and the theme has been 'kindness'. Children have explored different ways in which we can show 'kindness' including being kind to ourselves, to others and to our environment. Art was used as a central theme and quotes were designed and art made from plastic.
On Wednesday, it was National Thank Your Teacher day....teachers and school leaders work so hard at school and behind the scenes and they are so self-sacrificing and serious about what they do...it's lovely to have a day set aside so we can dedicate our appreciation to all teachers. And since we have been off school, your parents have become teachers so I hope you told them 'thank you' too:)

Happy Friday! This week has been busy. Miss Campbell ran a competition for PSHCE. Children had to design a poster about the Coronavirus. Well done to all the children who sent in their entries. They were all fantastic! The winners were meant to be announced today, however, children have still been sending in posters so we have extended the deadline until Monday 27th April 2020. The three lucky winners will get a £5 gift voucher from Amazon.
It was St. George's day yesterday. Check out this amazing poster by Amana, 5HX:
Absolutely beautiful, Amana! And as it that wasn't enough amazing art for the week, look at this colourful and eye-catching rainbow created by Rebecca, Lewis and Finlay!!!!

Thank you to all the families who have been sending in pictures of work and activities being completed. You are all doing an amazing job: staying positive, playing music, keeping active, being creative....the list goes on!!! This week, you have been CREATING. Creating sound....using design and technology skills to CREATE something new...creating exercise routines and most importantly, creating the atmosphere and environment needed to get all of your school work completed!
So this week is all about CREATION. If you have created something that you are particularly proud of, why not send it to Miss Campbell at email@example.com. Tom and Joseph have sent you all a beautiful postcard to read to let you know what they have been getting up to...

It's the end of the fourth week of the lockdown. Thank you to all the children that have sent in pics and messages for our message board. This week, some children have been baking and keeping fit. Thank you to Scarlett in Year 2 who has designed her own P.E workout routine. Watch out Joe Wicks!
Also, today was a fantastic day as the National Youth Orchestra organised 164 musicians to join together to perform the classic Beethoven piece 'Ode to Joy' in a show of solidarity, dedicated to everyone in need of a "musical pick-me-up". Check out this YouTube video featuring Mrs Freeburn and Co. Enjoy!

What amazing pics and messages are being sent in! Thank you to our parents/ carers who have dedicated their time and energy to contribute massively to our message board . It has been encouraging to see children making the most of their time at home with activity-packed days. Well done to our Year 2 HTG friend who has been managing to fit in his writing sessions, his bicycle exercise AND his guitar practice. Mrs Freeburn will be overjoyed! Please spread the word about our message board if you can so we can add even more fantastic content created by yourselves!
Check out this montage of some of the Year 1 children playing with google 3D animals. I hope this brings a smile to all of your faces!

Wow! It is the end of the first week of the Easter holidays. Thank you to all the families who have sent in pics and messages. To all the parents, you are doing a fantastic job keeping the children educated, entertained and most importantly....happy! This week, HTG children have been completing jigsaw and crossword puzzles independently!!! It's so essential for us all to keep the brain active and challenged! There are always positives that come out of a negative situation. It is good to hear that parents and carers feel that their families have become closer since the lockdown started!!!! If you have any positives to share, please email Miss Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org. Look after yourselves and each other! X

A new week! A new opportunity to be brave and strong!! We must try our best to persevere and remain positive in a very challenging time. If you can, please share with us any images or videos of any work you may have done or be proud of or even an uplifting message for everyone...maybe you've been learning a new life skill. Please let us know!!! You can send any of these ideas to Miss Campbell at email@example.com. She will upload what you send on a Monday or a Friday.
Now this week, some of your school peers have been carrying out home (where else) science experiments independently, creating a phone using a tin and a rope and helping to keep younger siblings educated and entertained. Others have been creating beautiful artwork (see below):

Thank you to the parents who offered the tuck shop idea last week! So many parents have commented on what a good idea it is:)
This week, one of our talented Year 5 students found a recipe for profiteroles online:
'He calculated how to reduce the recipe to serve six rather than eight. He then made them completely independently - and they were delicious!'-a proud mum

It's the end of week one of the lockdown and it is fantastic to see children having as much fun as is possible in these circumstances.
Children from Reception and Year 1 classes have been reading a new book everyday! Mrs Johonnett will be so happy and proud! They have been reading Mr. Men books and listening to David Walliam's free daily dose of audio books. As well as that, these inspirational children have been doing yoga sessions and trampoline sessions dedicated to Mr Eccles! They have even set up a tuck shop where they get treats for completing different chores around the house, including washing their daddy's car. Awwww! And to top it all off, they have been studying their core subjects and made Easter buntings.
They may be two of the youngest members of our school but they sure are inspirational and the images are uplifting. Thank you to these children's parent for their fantastic contributions and commitment to continuing the learning at home.
Check them out below:
To share your experiences, photo and videos, please email Miss Campbell at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you don't want to send images or videos, then an uplifting message or quote would be welcome! Please spread the word about this page as it would be great to have a sense of community on our website with all that is going on!
