Hi everyone! I hope you are all safe and well! During this time away from school I've spent most of the time in the garden enjoying the beautiful weather. We have has lots of barbecues, played swing ball and had water fights with my husband and our kids. I have also been on lots of long walks around Featherstone. Luckily, we have plenty to keep us busy with the 2 cats (Tommy & Ginger), 3 rabbits - with their new tunnel toy (Freckle, Willow & Knottie) and lots of fish in the pond. I hope you are all having fun, working hard and staying safe! I can't wait to see you soon!

Hi everyone.. Hope you’re all safe, well and happy. :-) I have been working all my boys hard, making sure they’re doing their work, but also making time for lots of fun and games together, especially in the garden in this lovely weather. I think my dog Cooper is enjoying having us all at home too!
Stay safe, and hope to see you all soon. :-D Love, Mrs Bowman.

Hi everyone!

I hope you are all doing well during this difficult time so I just wanted to send you all a little message so you all know I’m doing great and have been keeping myself busy! Alongside creating work for you guys, heading into school and lots of other school work, I have been trying to enjoy this beautiful weather we have been having by getting outside as much as possible. I have been going out for lots of runs around my village; it’s very beautiful here and is surrounded by farms and fields so the views have been lovely. I have also been doing some work in my garden – not a lot as I’m no expert and my dad is teaching me but as I can’t see him I’ve been trying to do little bits myself. We have a herb garden next to our main back garden, which is currently in the process of coming back to life, but I have been harvesting some chives, rosemary and lavender which grow there! There’s also been time to cut the grass in our little paddock attached to the garden which has been great fun being able to sit on our little tractor, although it has mostly been my boyfriend and I have just watched and told him the parts he's missed haha! And finally I’ve been spending a lot of time with our neighbour’s horses and sunbathing where I can reading my books! During this lockdown period it can be difficult not seeing friends and family, but as most them are back up in the north east and my sister down south, it has been really important to me to keep in touch with them all as much as possible through FaceTime, phone calls and even weekly quizzes which has been great fun! I miss you all very much and I can’t wait to see you all back at school, but in the meantime stay safe, look after each other and yourself! Keep sending us your pictures to UKS2@northfeatherstone.wakefield.sch.uk it’s been fab seeing what you have been up to!

 

Lots of love

Hi all,

It has been great hearing from you all and I have loved seeing the pictures you have sent through to our new email address.

During the week, I’m still very busy with school work, but I created an outdoor desk during the warm weather. At the beginning of lockdown I got a new bike, and have been enjoying evening rides through the local parks and woodlands with my boyfriend, who constantly moans about how slow I am!! I have also been baking lots and started painting and drawing much more – it is very relaxing.

Otter and Rampage are well and they are loving a new outdoor run – and are eating everything in sight as usual!

It goes without saying I’m eager for the football season to restart, safely of course! Come on Liverpool!

Keep yourselves busy and stay safe! Missing you all – especially the daily laughs!

Hi all,  

During lockdown I am enjoying long walks with my dogs; Star and Belle. I helped Mr Morgan clean out our pond and counted 84 fish in total! I have also been painting in my garden and enjoying the sun. Take care, stay safe.

*NEW* HOUR OF CODE

We have had such great feedback from last week's Hour of Code activity so we have added a new one for you today! The goal of this coding activity is to get the cart of bananas to the monkey by clearing a path and overcoming obstacles along the way. Every few challenges, new characters are introduced to help create a path for the cart to get to the monkey. After you write your code, click on the cart to get it moving. It is a little more difficult than last week's activity so there are hints and tips are included along the way to help you! Again, we recommend Google Chrome but this works in all browsers.

Follow the link below to get coding and good luck!
