Mrs B’s Book Club: Shark in the Park!

Welcome back to another day of Mrs B’s Book Club! Today we have Lillie’s request, ‘Shark in the Park’. I just love Nick Sharratt’s books but especially his illustrations!

How GLORIOUS is this sunshine!? I hope you are all making the most of it!

Suggested activities to follow this book are suggested below.

  1. Make yourself a telescope! Be as creative as you wish, can you make yours better than Timothy Pope’s?


2. Use your telescope to play ‘I Spy’ type games. Something beginning with ‘m’….something that rhymes with ‘cat’… ‘I spy a r-o-ck’…’I Spy five leaves’…there’s so many things you can find using your new telescope!

Let me know if you make one and how you choose how to decorate it!

RE with Miss Harrison

Hi Everyone

Hoping you are all safe and well.

Remember RE is not only learning about religion but learning from religion and the links we can make in our own lives.

Symbols and Logos.

  1. Can you say what these logos/symbols represent?

zp95CQLBjFR7SDjxAZigeKYou might need to ask your adult to help you with some.

2. Write down a list of symbols or logos you know, you could even draw your favourite one.

My class will know that I love superheros.

These are my favourite logos.

3. Draw some superhero symbols. It is lots of fun.


4. What religious symbols do you know?

Draw and write what religion they belong to.

6 major World Religions

Missing you all. Stay home and keep safe.

Hi all, I’m back!

Hi 2 Armstrong,

I am writing to let you know I am back! I am sorry for being away from school for so long. I had an injury and I had to let it heal before I could return. I am healthy and looking forward to seeing you all again when this is all over. Remember to stay at home where you can keep safe.

Because I have not seen you all for a while, I wanted to challenge your memory and see what you can remember from what we have done together so far in 2020. Keep an eye on the blog because I will post some things to talk and write about that you can do to impress your parents. It might be about our History, D and T, Music, Science or more so don’t forget to check here every few days.

I hope to see you all again soon,

Mr Connolly

Shapes are everywhere !

Morning Nursery children

It is another lovely, sunny day and I hope you are all well and happy.

Did you enjoy your magic painting yesterday ?

For today’s activity I want you to think about the shapes that we have been learning about. You will need your grown-up to cut out a set of shapes for you: a circle, a square, a rectangle and a triangle.

Can you remember the name of each shape and what its features are ? Here are the shape rhymes to help you. (The tune for the rhyme is ‘The farmers in his den’)


A circles like the sun,

A circles like the sun,

Round and round, it never stops,

A circles like the sun.


A square is a shape,

A square is a shape,

It has four sides their all the same,

A square is a shape.


A triangle has three sides,

A triangle has three sides,

Up the mountain down and back,

A triangle has three sides.


A rectangle has four sides,

A rectangle has four sides,

Two are short and two are long,

A rectangle has four sides.


Once you have remembered the four shapes, I would like you to go around your house and see if you can find:

4 things that have a circle shape.

4 things that have a square shape.

4 things that have a triangle shape.

4 things that have a rectangle shape.

Which shape was the hardest to find ? Which shape was the easiest ?


After finding the shapes indoors,  go outside into the garden and see if you can find the four shapes outdoors too.


Let me know how you get. Happy shape hunting !!!

Thinking of you all

Mr Sutherland’s Bake Off!!

Hi Peel Hall children,

I’ve been looking at our Design & Technology lessons a lot recently and it inspired me to get the family involved in our very own family Great British Bake Off competition.

With the very important judges looking on (me and my wife), my three daughters were given the ingredients to complete three different challenges. They had to design and make their own versions of:

The signature dish – Easter cornflake cakes

The technical challenge – hot cross buns

The show stopper – an NHS theme ice cream sundae

My girls won a round each but the overall Star Baker was… Lily-Rose!

Why don’t you take on the D&T challenge with your family. You can use our dishes or think of ones of your own.

Let me know how you got on in the blog comments below. Also, scroll down through the blog and have a go at Mr Sutherland’s Active Challenge and let me know how you got on in the blog comments.

Ready… Steady… Bake!!

Magic painting

Morning Boys and Girls

I hope you are all well on this lovely sunny morning.

For the activity today all you will need is a paintbrush of some kind, a pot of water and some sunshine.

Painting with water is one of those activities that you will absolutely love to do and you can spend hours doing this over and over again.

Now because you are only going to use water you can paint anywhere your grown-up tells you to in your outside space.

What you can do

  • You can explore and experiment with your mark making, creating different types of shapes, circles, swirls, squiggles and clouds. You can make them really big or really small.
  • You can draw lines of different sizes, and talk about which one is short or which one is long. When you have drawn even more, you can then talk about which lines are shorter and longer when you compare them.
  • You can write your name.
  • Put lots of water on to your brush and see how far away you can flick your water.
  • You can even paint your garden fence.

Now before I mentioned the word ‘magic’. I want you see what happens to the water when you paint in the sunshine. Does it always stay there ? What happens to your painting ? Where does the water go ? What does the sun do the water ?

Let me know how your magic painting goes and if you can answer any of my questions.

Don’t forget it is important to keep practising your number and rhyming skills everyday.

Thinking of you all, missing you lots.
