Hi, Bug Club won’t allow Orlaith access for some reason. Please could we have a new password?

Lucy Callinan(less than a week ago)

Hi Mrs Newey, Orlaith has done really well this week with her school work. She’s been on prodigy and spelling shed. She’s watched the videos and designed her own alien. She’s also learned all about the solar system and has written down the names of the planets. I will send pics through Mrs Shaw.

Hi, Orlaith is working so hard and having lots of fun! Tell her that Mrs Newey says "well done!". I'm glad she enjoyed the QPootle5 activities. Thank you so much for your continued support. Take care, Mrs Newey

Hi, Orlaith has enjoyed this week. She did some baking and decorating for VE Day celebrations. She watched the Q Pootle video and thought it was good and we talked about what sort of person Q Pootle is. She’s done some spelling shed and I think she did prodigy (but the weeks are merging!!).

Good afternoon Yazzmin. Thank you so much for your support, it sounds like you are having lots of fun! Operation Ouch is popular in my house too. Take care, Mrs Newey.

Hi everyone! Thank you Mrs. Newey for all your hard work. Jacob has been enjoying Prodigy when he plays, however Spelling Shed is a bit more of a chore! He is also enjoying the games on BBC Bitesize. Operation Ouch on YouTube is of huge interest too, leading to Jacob and Daddy desecting a lamb's heart! We have had lots of time in the garden and out for walks in the woods. Jacob and Matilda have become really good pals, which is lovely to see. The level of "work" being done is quite minimal, but lots of playing and talking and just being together. We will try some Q-Pootle 5 stuff this week!
