Letter to Miss Price from 4 Hazel whilst she was on Year 6 camp:
Dear Miss Price,
Monday 14th March
We have had a big, busy day. Everyone was working like buzzing bees! In the morning, we met Miss Porter and she is amazing so we behaved really well, as we are supposed to! Some of us had a little bit of a struggle trying to tell the time in maths. In our independent write, we wrote descriptive language about images from our trip.
After lunch, we got the netbooks out and went on a website to learn about creating websites step by step. We all did really well!
Everyone misses you already – but there is a lot more tea left in the PPA room than usual!
Tuesday 15th March
Today we had a fantastic day with Miss Porter. Thankfully, we felt more comfortable with telling the time than yesterday. Sadly, however, Mrs Lane was not here because she was ill. After play, we started planning our own verse of From a Railway Carriage. Some of us found it difficult to think of rhymes.
In the afternoon, we learned a little bit more about trains and how they changed Britain. Did you know that George Stephenson is pictured on the £5 note?
Everyone is still missing you – please try not to get eaten by bears!
Wednesday 16th March
In the morning we did English and we were writing our own verse of From a Railway Carriage which was eight lines long. Everybody got on brilliantly – we think you’ll be impressed! After break, we carried on learning to tell the time. We were set different tasks and now almost everyone is feeling confident. Before lunch, we made our own Commonwealth flags.
When we got back from lunch break, we did PE which was fun because we played a game a bit like Cars and Bikes. After PE, we did ICT and it was a disaster! The reason for this was that none of us (even Miss Porter and Miss Gully) could make the image link work. However, it was a short-lived disaster – we left it for you to do next week…
Make sure you come back in one piece please!
Thursday 17th March
We are writing this just after lunch today as we have Curriculum Afternoon later, so we may be too busy.
This morning, in English, we published our poetry From a Railway Carriage. They all look fantastic so we would like to display them on the wall, if you would like to. In maths, some of us got to play a time game on the netbooks whilst others attempted the Super Hard Maths Challenge!
Now we have to go because the parents will be arriving soon – we can’t wait!
We all miss you!
