Hello everyone! We hope you are all keeping well. Just a reminder that there will be no work set over the Easter holidays; make sure you relax and have fun! Let us know what EGGciting things you get up to. We are sure you will come up with some EGGcelent ideas. If you do need anything EGGstra to do over the holidays, there are lots of links to websites. Don't forget to try out some of our EGGstraordinary activities on the Cowick 75 Creatives. Have a HOPPY EASTER!!! Best wishes from the Cowick Team. :-)
Today we are doing French. I have learnt a phrase especially for Mr Martin. Pouvez-Vous sentir le poulet?
Good morning everyone. Ella enjoyed having her drawing shown by author Adam Bushnell on his YouTube Storytelling slot yesterday. We also had a shout out for everyone at Cowick! Watch him every day at 2:30! We are hoping to focus on English/Literacy work today as well as planting our seeds kindly given to us by Puntons! Have a good day everyone! x
Good morning everyone! We hope you are all staying safe. We are lucky to have Mr. Nicholls with us again today, so have been doing our very own workouts including ladders, lily pads and hurdles! Our caterpillars have now become chrysalides and we have put them into the Butterfly Habitat where we are looking forward to watching them transform into butterflies over the next week or so! It is great to hear what you have all been up to. For those of you not loving the Joe Wicks workouts, why not try some 'Jump Start Jonny'. He is doing live workouts also on his YouTube channel Mon to Fri at 9am: https://www.youtube.com/jumpstartjonny Hope you all have a great day!
Hi everyone! Joe Wickes has not been a hit thus far but William enjoyed doing it this morning. Ella continued with her self teaching of the keyboard! They both enjoyed doing their daily lesson on Maths Factor then did a little bit of Power Maths work. Ella did her phonics and spellings and then joined William on a writing activity on NightZooKeeper.com We had a video call with Isobel and her mum - it was lovely to catch up (and see her new puppies!) We set aside this afternoon to paint the shed. We now have a beach hut styled affair going on! We are currently listening to Adam Bushnell's story telling on YouTube. Please support if you can, he is my friend's partner. We've not been out for our walk/cycle or scoot yet - we've been so busy! Hope everyone is feeling well and staying safe. X
Hi there, hope everyone is keeping well. As regards the speed sounds for Reception, all should be confident with the Set 1 sounds. Some children may need to practice the Set 2 sounds, these are the sounds where 2 letters make 1 sound. All these sounds were sent home, if your child is confident with these sounds, then move onto Set 3. Many children will be ready for these sounds. Some children had just started these before we finished. These are the alternative ways to make sounds we already know, for example in Set 2 we learn ee in Set 3 we learn that ea can make the same sound. Hope this is helpful, you should only need to spend about 20 minutes learning a new sound. Stay safe Regards Mrs Comerford
Ellie would like to say hello to all of her school friends, she has been busy with her maths workbook, ixl website and reading (mainly George’s marvellous medicine to her mummy and baby brother!) we have also done some fun activities such as baking “frozen” buns and we also did the “white board marker on a plate” challenge! We have been taking pictures and writing a journal to document what we have been doing in isolation. She is very much missing school, her teachers and her friends! Ellie has taken part in joe wicks work outs and done some of the ballet coach lessons to keep up with her ballet. She has also learned how to bounce a ball like a basket ball and planted some flowers in the garden. Ellie told me to tell her teachers she is having lots of fun! We hope to see you all soon, stay safe everyone!
Hello everybody! It is lovely to hear from you all. It is such a shame the sunshine has decided to hide -I don't blame anybody for making the most of it last week. Being British we don't see it often enough! It is so nice to hear what you have been up to, you can't beat making things from Lego and a nice bit of colouring in. I am excited to try all these new dishes that children have been learning to make during their time at home -I made some banana bread yesterday (due to a few blackening bananas in my fruit bowl) just wondering if I can count it as part of my 5 a day?! Mr Pepper if Emilia can put the information into her own words that would be great but if she prefers to 'magpie' (borrow) sentences from the text that is also fine. Don't worry about 'doing things wrong' its a new situation for us all and we are just getting through it together. I am also excited to hear this music being created by the children. We might have to have a sharing experience once we return to school so the children can share their newly found talents -they can all teach me some sign language. Take care everybody. Look after each other :)
Ashley has done lots of things today, including his suggested music class from Mylene Klass. I never knew he had such a talent at pan banging until now. I am sure a few parents will be more than happy send children with pan and spoon to give Mr Martin a hearty demonstration on the first day back of their new found skill! To rest from his creativity, he has also made a rhubarb crumble and done his work out with Joe this morning. We have as a family particularly enjoyed our first lesson in sign language.
Hi Emilia has been doing her Egypt work and I've tried to get her doing the extracts in her own words but I'm wondering if that's right or if she should be copying the extracts they have highlighted onto the different sections such as Ruling Egypt etc??? I just think reading the extracts that its hard to adapt them really. Thanks hope everyone's OK.
