Tuesday 2nd June 

 

Hello Maize class, 

 

I hope you enjoyed creating shadow pictures yesterday in the beautiful sunshine. For today’s challenge going  along with the art theme, I would like you to create a piece of abstract art. Again you may use a variety of resources and materials (paint, collage, crayons, felt tips etc). 

Please see photos below for inspiration. 
 

I look forward to seeing your beautiful pieces.

Today’s challenge is a fun one and using this amazing weather we are having. I would like you to draw round a shadow. It could be a person, some toys, a tree, anything you like really! You could also use a range of resources- chalk, paint, crayons. 
 

Have fun ☀️

Hello Maize Class,

 

I hope you all had a lovely half-term enjoying the glorious sunshine.

 

I would like to introduce myself I am Mrs Bosher and I am back at Milton. Although times are a bit different, I look forward to seeing some of you from a distance in school. I look forward to hopefully getting to know you all well from September. In the meantime Mrs Loftus will be doing an amazing job teaching you all. 
 

I have really enjoyed looking through your pictures of all the lovely work and activities you are doing at home. I continue to look forward to seeing more of the fabulous work you all do. 
 

Love Mrs Bosher

To our lovely children and parents of Maize Class, 

 

Thank you so much for our beautiful cards and gifts. We were both amazed and touched by your kindness. Sadly it is now our time to leave but what a fantastic time we have had teaching you this year. We particularly enjoyed singing all the songs at our Nativity at Christmas and the shared fun on our family learning morning. Even with all the straw and glue! We both feel so sad we aren’t able to say a proper farewell to you all, but we hope we will bump into you at some time in the future. With the very best wishes to you all and with love, 

 

Mrs Smith and Mrs Shean xxx

Half term

Dear Maize Class,

Next week is the half term holiday so we will not be setting any work, but we would love you to keep doing some reading everyday. 

 

After half term, Mrs Bosher will take over from us, but Mrs Shean and I will continue to look at all your learning on the website. Thank you for working so hard in Maize Class. We are so proud of you all and we will miss you so much!

 

Take care and keep safe.

Love from Mrs Smith and Mrs Shean xxx

Good morning marvellous Maize Class,

 

 

Today I would like you to read the story of ‘The Little Red Hen’. If you haven’t got a copy, watch a version on Youtube.

 

Then I would like you to draw a story map. It could look like this one. If you can, send me a photo of it to put on the website.

 

Have fun!

Good morning Maize-ettes! 
 

I hope you had a lovely weekend. This week we are looking at British wildlife. I wonder if you have spotted any wildlife when out walking or in your garden? On Sunday my children found a nest of ducklings while walking near our home, they were very fluffy and very sweet! 
 

Missing you all,
