A Message for Upper School from Miss Barrett - 4th July
Dear Parents,
I hope that your child/ren enjoyed the first week of the 'beyond' element of our topic for this term: 'Above, Below and Beyond – The Limits of Human Exploration'. It was brilliant to see how imaginative they were when designing their own planets and the detail that they included in their posters about the solar system. Attached is the new timetable for next week. A copy can also be found on the school website. The focus will continue to be on the BEYOND element. As part of this, the children will explore space including: our solar system, stars, black holes and faraway galaxies.

If you have any questions regarding Home Learning or would like to share what your child has been up to, please email me. Miss Crockett is teaching in school for four days a week, so will not be able to respond quickly to emails.

Video Calls
Next Friday, there will be Zoom calls for all Year 4 and 5 pupils (both Oak and Apple). To take part, you will need to download Zoom onto a computer or phone and create a free account. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible then. Please note the change in day. This is due to the new in school arrangements.

Upper School Zoom Meeting 1:
Time: July 10th 10:30-10:50
Pupils Attending: Year 5 (Note the change in Year group)
Theme: Bring a pen and something to write on for a quiz.

Upper School Zoom Meeting 2:
Time: July 10th 11:00-11:20

Dear Parents,

It was brilliant to see how creative everyone was with beautiful footprints on the beach pictures and brand new sea monsters. Attached is the new timetable for next week. A copy can also be found on the school website. The focus for the next two weeks will be on the BEYOND element. As part of this, the children will explore space including: our solar system, stars, black holes and faraway galaxies.

A message from Miss Barrett - 1st May
Dear Parents,
I hope you are all well. I wanted to introduce our additional theme, as well as an exciting task that Miss Crockett and I have set. Apple Class video calls will also start next week!

Apple Class War Poem
With the 75th anniversary of V.E. Day being celebrated on Friday 8th May, I wanted to include some war-themed activities on our timetable. Our English lessons this week are therefore based on a very powerful video called: Beyond The Lines. This video really struck Miss Crockett and I and we hope that you and your children enjoy exploring it as much as we did.

By Thursday’s lesson, the children are encouraged to write one line of a war poem. My aim is to put their lines together to create a class poem. It would be fantastic if as many children as possible could be a part of our poem - a special way to bring us all together whilst we are apart. The line can be emailed to me to collate. Alternatively, your child could be filmed saying their line. I may then be able to put the video clips together to create a spoken version of the poem.

I understand that not all families are following the timetable and some children will not want to be involved and that is absolutely fine. Please do not feel under any pressure to take part. However, if your child would like to be a part of this special activity, then I look forward to seeing what they come up with. Please email me your lines by 3pm on Friday 8th May. More information can be found on the timetable.

Video Calls
Next Tuesday, at 10:30am, I will be hosting Apple Class’ first Zoom call! The focus of this time is to catch up and talk about some of the things that the children have been up to. Zoom conferencing is not something that I am an expert at (and there will likely be some teething problems!), but I am looking forward to seeing some familiar faces again. To take part, you will need to download Zoom onto a computer or phone and create a free account. At 10:30am on Tuesday, you can then access the meeting using the details sent by the Chesterton office. The call will end at about 10:50am. I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible then. Before taking part, we would like you to read through the attached Acceptable Use Agreement with your children.

Best wishes, Miss Barrett
Posted 20th April
Hi Apple, Welcome back!
I hope you all had a restful Easter break, whether you spent time in the garden, catching up with friends and family or getting active. I used the time to hone my cooking skills making cakes, pastries and a 'half decent potato and leek soup' as quoted by my dad!

The next timetable and set of resources marks the start of the Summer Term. All of which you will find on the school website. Miss Crockett and I have decided on the theme of 'The Wild West' for the next few weeks and we hope that you will enjoy exploring it.

As always, please keep me updated on what you are doing. I really enjoy receiving your emails and am always looking for content for my weekly newsletter. Remember to also email questions if you are finding anything tricky, whether that's with school work or something personal. I am always here to listen.

All my best wishes,
Miss Barrett
