Hi Year 4 (that includes Mums, Dads and other family and friends)!
I MISS YOU ALL SO MUCH!!!!
Firstly, I hope everyone is safe, well and still smiling. Life has become a bit strange all of a sudden but it WILL get back to normal at some point. In the mean time let us make the most of a challenging situation by 'bringing out the best in everyone for the benefit of all in the spirit of Christ.'
Year 4 - I hope you are being kind and helpful to all of the people at home. I can understand if the changes over the last few days have been a bit strange and scary but don't worry -take a deep breath and think of all of the fun things we have done together and all of the fun we will have again in the future. We are currently experiencing what it is like to live through a bit of world history. In years to come your children and your grandchildren will be asking you all about it and doing EBL projects on it! It might be a good idea to create a journal / diary that records everything you are doing and how you are feeling over the coming weeks. Who knows? You might become the new Anne Frank! I am currently trying to find as many ways to keep you entertained and clever over the next few weeks. Keep checking the website, purple mash and Twitter.
Parents - I hope you are all okay and not too overwhelmed at the moment. As a teacher and parent I will also use this page to try and help you to help your children to learn. I find the main key to teaching (and parenting) is to be patient, know your audience, pick your battles and most importantly to make learning fun rather than stressful. I will attempt to put ideas and videos on this page to help you all. Please bare with me as this is all new to me too!
Sending you all love and -socially distanced- hugs,
Mr Brown xxxx
Hello all, technically it is the Easter holidays now so if you feel the urge to take a break from all of your hard work go for it.
If, however, you are feeling a bit bored in lockdown I have a few challenges to keep you going over the next two weeks. Feel free to have a go at any of the following:
I continue to miss you all!
Love and virtual hugs,
Mr B x
