Olivia and Sebastian Sills wanted to share a little project they did with their dad... They made a mini picnic table for our resident squirrels. Once made they put it where we normally leave some nuts for them. They popped some nuts onto the table and the squirrels enjoyed sitting down for their breakfast the next day 😊
We think this is amazing! Look at the squirrel! Well done to you both.
What a lovely letter Harry - well done for completing your RE challenge.
Mrs Carey's Song and Sign
What a great castle - well done James.
James and I have been busy this morning embracing the castle topic. James has made a castle with a working drawbridge out of recycling. He's done most of it by himself e.g. the painting and cutting and I helped him with the drawbridge.
I think he's done an amazing job and he's very proud of his creation so I thought I would share it with the rest of the school.
It's great to see what you have been up to Noah- we think Freddie is gorgeous!
We hope you are all well and keeping safe.
Noah has been enjoying being at home and spending time as a family. He's particularly enjoyed being in the garden in this beautiful weather, with our dog Freddie. Yesterday, Noah followed the instructions of putting a greenhouse together. He persevered and was really proud of himself. We have lots of lovely fruits and vegetables growing now, which we can't wait to be able to eat! Noah is hoping we have lots of yummy strawberries and raspberries.
He's been doing the worksheets sent home from school, reading, building lego, using silk and foam clay (which is amazing), art and a lot of football and basketball.
We hope everyone is ok. Noah sends a big high five to all his teachers and friends.
Rachel, Dan, Amber and Noah xx
Well done to Tyler (and Tilly) who has been learning about the body!
Sophie's painted version of a cherry tree
Lots of Easter craft happening.
We think this is fantastic Sophie- well done!
Great to hear what you have been up to Jacobs family!
Hello to all the lovely staff at St Luke's,
It's Harry and Archie Jacobs here. We hope you are all well! We are having fun learning at home with Mummy and Daddy but we are missing all our friends and teachers! We loved seeing the video of Mr Saxby and enjoyed singing with Mrs Bird. We also saw the video of Auggie and we thought he might like to see what we have been doing.
Mummy challenged me to find an object for every letter of the alphabet but it had to fit on a plate.
We wrote instructions of how to make banana pancakes then made them.
We loved the online Art and Times Tables Class
We enjoyed an Easter Quiz with our friends in Year 3 using 'Zoom' and made certificates for the winners.
Mr Kisiala, challenged us to spot bees outside. We found one and then decided to find out more about them and make a ' bug hotel'.
We went on a Spring walk ( for our daily exercise) and wrote about what we saw.
We hope you all have a lovely Easter.
Harry and Archie Jacobs
Wow- great job Crowes!
Hi everyone ! We’ve been studying the rainforest for the last 2 weeks and have made a mural in our ‘classroom’ aka the kitchen !
Nick and Sooty and Sweep have recorded a sketch for Palm Sunday. Hope you enjoy it. If you do please can you share it with other people. Thank you.
Stories of Hope - No.1: Palm Sunday will be able to be viewed on YouTube from 8am on Sunday morning by clicking this link:
We're pleased to see you enjoying the sunshine Charlie and Daisy!
We have been missing our teachers and friends a lot, but have been making the most of our free time in the beautiful sunshine. We sanded, painted and reroofed a very old rabbit hutch. (We are yet to find a rabbit for it!) We also discovered an ants' nest and were able to collect quite a few to observe in our special insect boxes. We released them, unharmed after one night!
We have been enjoying keeping in touch with our friends through video messages. Thank you everyone for staying connected.
Great lighthouse Bertie!
Hi St Lukes Team, hope everyone is safe and well. Bertie has been working hard (albeit in his pyjamas ) on a model of the Grace Darling rescue. Hope you like it 😊
It's lovely to hear from you Greenham family.
Georgia, Louisa & Joseph here - we are really enjoying the time at home with Mummy, but do miss all our friends and teachers at school. So far, we are keeping well, exercising every day and doing lots of learning.
We are doing our phonics, reading, times tables, Math & English and different topics each day. This week our topics are Africa and the Environment. We have all got our own email accounts and have been using the Ipad to email and talk to our family and friends. We have played lots of games indoors and outdoors, we hope that the sun keeps shining so that we can keep riding our bikes and playing on the trampoline.
Today we learned about volume and went outside to do lots of fun measuring and have just watched all the video's on St Lukes website. The video of Auggie really made us all laugh and we all sang along loudly with Mrs Bird to Power In Me.
We hope that everyone is having fun with their families and still getting lots of fresh air, we look forward to seeing everyone soon.
Lots of love,
Georgia, Louisa, Joseph and Mummy Kate xoxo
Well done Mehmet- a great mixture of reading comprehension and maths work!
It's great to hear from you Ibrahim family- keep up the impressive work!
This morning Lena is doing maths, Lamma is doing religious work ( The holy Quran ) , Lamar is doing English reading and Mustafa is doing times table rockstars .
Well done for challenging yourself Dexter!
Hi Mr Matthews!
Dexter wanted to share some photos with you of his maths from this morning, carrying on with his favourite....times tables! But this worksheet had some really tricky ones for Dexter to work out! He did so well, partitioning the bigger multiple into tens and ones before timesing them by the other multiple and adding them together to give him the answer.
Hope you and your family are well and staying safe,
Dexter and family
Well done Ayla; this brought a happy tear to our eyes. We love your singing and the fact you wanted to say a prayer. Keep up the good work Ayla and Harry!
Well done Spencer-Mrs Hurl will be proud!
We hope everyone is staying safe.
Mrs Hurl.... Spencer has been practising his spelling so well I have made them into a word search.
What a great photo from the Hopkins!

We’ve been very busy here at Beardsley Towers enjoying the sunshine, all 4 of us together working is just joyful!!!!
Lots of Y3’s got together for a ‘Zoom’ meeting this morning and did a treasure hunt seeing who could be the first to come back with various items!!!
We’ve been doing some water art as Mrs. Carey told us we’d have been doing that if we were having our Arts week at school.
Lots of love to you all.
Max and his Mummy!
Thank you Ava; this made us laugh!
Tigermouse in Acorns Class is enjoying his workout with Joe Wicks.
We love your creation Zoe- well done!
Thanks for posting the video from Auggie today! My daughter, Zoe in Catkins, really enjoyed it! She wasn't sure who did the voice, but she laughed and said "Auggie can't talk, that must be a person talking, that's a good joke!".
She has asked me to send in a picture of the Hama beads she has done today, so I am attaching it.
I hope all the school teachers and staff are safe, thank you very much for keeping the Facebook page going, it is much appreciated in this time of uncertainty.
Well done Elliot - your pictures have made us smile.
We have been doing lots of colouring and painting in the garden!
Auggie's message to you all
