@WoolmerHillScho - 27/03/2020Clear skies tonight & a perfect time to see the International Space Station @Space_Station, crescent Moon, Venus & the Pleiades star cluster! So dig out those binoculars, wrap up warm & investigate the sky at night - what an amazing learning opportunity! #stargazing#skyatnight
27/03/2020⭐️ Miss Fry's Feel Good Friday ⭐️
So it's Friday, the first week of home learning is nearly complete, we are hopefully feeling happy and positive and to reward us Miss Fry has agreed to share the recipe for her famous Glitter Jars!
So easy, so quick and so sparkly - have a great weekend everyone!
• Small jar or bottle (make sure it will hold liquid tightly)
• Clear glue
• Glitter (any colours you like)
• A few drops of food colouring
• Hot water
• Whisk or a stick
1. Pour glue and hot water (tap water is okay) into the jar and mix with a whisk or stick. The glue gives the liquid a different thickness and makes impressive swirls of glitter.
2. Add some glitter. You can start with 1-2 tablespoons of glitter.
3. Add a drop or two of food colouring to give it more excitement. Don’t put too much in otherwise the water can turn very dark!
4. When everything is blended, put the lid on and give it a good shake so the glitter is dispersed throughout.
5. Then let it cool without the lid.
6. You can secure the lid with super glue if you wish.
@WoolmerHillScho - 26/03/2020We are now accepting drawn Easter Egg entries (as we understand you may be saving your eggs!) for our Easter Challenge and if you need inspiration here are Miss Williams' example entries - The Easter Bunny and Mr Egg-cercise!
@WoolmerHillScho - 26/03/2020Help Mr Walker cope without football! Get involved in his Times Tables Rockstars @TTRockstars Euro 2020 competition! It will run every day next week from 1-3pm with round robin competitions Mon-Wed & then the knockout matches from Fri-Sun. See Insight for more information! #TTRS
26/03/2020We hope you are all now set up in your home learning environments and are getting to grips with the new ‘routine’. Mr Clayton has put together a ‘go to guide’ which was sent out via email last night so if you are struggling to find your rhythm or motivation this might be a good place to start. We will be publishing some of his hints and tips, as well as those from other teachers, throughout the coming weeks to keep you going so, as they say, watch this space!
For now, if you find yourself with time in between school work, please think about entering our Easter Egg challenge (details below). As some of you may be conserving eggs for eating, we have extended the challenge to include drawings of Easter eggs too so please do send over your entries!
Lastly, we want to say how proud we are of our students. These are challenging times for us all but despite this when they have been struggling or facing adversity their emails to their teachers have remained polite, courteous and well written. So from us to you, thank you! 😊
