Good morning Gruffalo room!

 

I hope that you are all enjoying your week so far and have been keeping as busy as you can be.

I have received lots of photos from you all and I can see all the amazing things that you are doing at home.

 

I am also happy to tell you that we will be having another Gruffalo room Zoom laugh

Our next one will be on Monday 18th May at 10am and will last around half an hour.

If you have already attended a Gruffalo room Zoom, I will email you the link for the next one.

If you haven't attended one yet and would like to, please email me at EYFSlearning.sbp@educ.somerset.gov.uk by 3pm tomorrow afternoon (Friday 15th May)

Don't forget, there are a couple of rules about our Zoom catch ups that we all need to follow:

The meeting must not be recorded.

  • You will need to think carefully about where you are when you join the meeting and what you are wearing so that you are ready to meet with all of your classmates.

  • Your parents need to be present in the room where you have the meeting.

  • Teachers will lock the meeting once everyone has joined so that no-one can join who hasn’t been invited.

  • Teachers will be able to remove or mute people who do not follow the rules.

  • Parents need to read Zoom’s terms and conditions, so they are sure of what Zoom is all about.

I look forward to seeing you all on Monday

Maggie has been very busy completing activities from her home learning pack and has made these wonderful bird feeders!!

Looking after the birds is so important and I'm sure they are going to be very thankful for the treats.

I hope you are all having a wonderful sunny Friday.

One of our favourite things to do in the sun is to play with bubbles. Did you know that you can make your own bubble mixture?!

All you need is:

  • 1 cup of washing up liquid
  • 1 cup of cornflour
  • 2 tablespoons of baking powder

Why don't you have a go and see if you can make some? I'd love to see some pictures of how they turn out smiley
