Dragons’ Eyes

Today, the Snowy Owls have been creating intricate dragons’ eyes using clay. Aren’t they fabulous? We cannot wait until they have been fired and the glass iris has been added.

Viking Songs

Snowy Owls have been learning a range of songs linked to Viking mythology. The adults in class have been so impressed with the singing that we thought it would be a shame not to share it! We will upload more over the next few days. Here is one of our favourites – ‘Loki the Joker’.

We Escaped The Room (Well … some of us did!)

The Golden Eagles and Snowy Owls had a fantastic time in Sheffield this week. Each child had the opportunity to experience an exciting escape room at Escape Sheffield. The adults were so impressed with the children’s teamwork, problem solving and resilience. Some children visited the ‘Witchcraft and Wizardry’ room and others had a go at the ‘221b Baker Street’ room. We are now buzzing with ideas for our own escape room, which brave parents, carers, family and friends will have the opportunity to try towards the end of term. Watch this space …

Anston Greenlands’ Leavers 2020

All of the Year 6 children have already had farewell letters from Mr Wirth and from me so I’m not going to repeat myself too much! It has been a real pleasure to work with you and I’m looking forward to seeing you all again before too long. I just wanted to share a couple of films before the summer holidays start.

Firstly, you have all had a DVD which includes the Lip Sync Video but I love it so much that I have decided to share it with everyone else:

Secondly, on Friday afternoon, we were treated to a performance by ‘Lockdown’, our 2020 school band. Somehow, with severely limited rehearsal time, they managed to put on a fantastic show. What an amazing end to a very strange term!

Thank you to the Y6 children for being so great and to their families for your support, kind messages and hard work over the last few months!

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 13th July

Hello, Snowy Owls

It’s difficult to believe that this is your final week at Anston Greenlands!

If you are not currently in school, I hope that someone is able to pick up your work on Wednesday afternoon. In the bag of work, you will find your leavers’ assembly DVD. The Y6s in school will be watching the films on Friday morning, so they will take their DVDs home that afternoon. I hope you all enjoy it! I have also included a letter to say goodbye and good luck.

I know that your high schools have been providing plenty of transition activities, so I haven’t set anything for you to do this week.

I always love hearing from you, so please stay in touch. I am looking forward to seeing you all again when we are able to arrange a proper get-together.

Have a fantastic summer and a great start to Y7.

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 6th July

Hello, Snowies!

Thank you to everyone for sending photos and video clips for the Leavers’ DVD. What a great effort! I’m now busy making films and putting everything together. I’m hoping to get the DVD to you at some point next week. Watch this space!

I believe that Wales High, Aston Academy and Dinnington High have now all launched their transition activities.

If you haven’t yet heard from DHS, their transition site is here:

https://dhstransition.co.uk/

Each of the high schools has given you plenty to do, so I would definitely suggest that you prioritise getting to know as much as you can about your new school and having a go at the activities they have set.

I always love hearing from you, so please feel free to continue sending photos, work and messages.

Best wishes

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 29th June

Good afternoon, Snowies

Thank you to everyone who sent photos for the leavers’ film. It is now complete and I can confirm that you were all very sweet when you were four years old!

I now have 21 fantastic films of your favourite memories from your time at Anston Greenlands. Keep them coming! Additionally, if any of you would like to send a film of a particular talent, I would love to see them and they will feature of the Leavers’ DVD. So far, I’ve had singing, drumming, rugby and guitar playing!

Make sure you get your ‘I’m Still Standing’ Lip Sync videos to me by 3rd July (this Friday). Either send the film to me directly or use www.wetransfer.com. I have only received one of these so far from the children not in school. Please don’t be late – it will take us quite some time to put it together!

I’ve allocated two lines to everyone who has said they would like to be involved and I’ve sent this out. Please let me know if you haven’t received this. Feel free to sing in your clip if you would like to, but you don’t have to.

Again, please prioritise transition work from your new high school. I know some of you have quite a lot to do and I believe this will increase over the next few weeks for the rest of you.

Otherwise, keep going with the Oak Academy work, TT Rockstars, Rising Stars and Active Learn – whatever works well for you. This week on Oak Academy (Week 10), there is a focus on data handling in maths – this should be a good recap before you start Y7. In English, the teachers are looking at sections of the Shakespeare play, Macbeth. After your work last year linked to ‘The Tempest’, you already have experience of working with Shakespearian language, so I am sure you will find this interesting. Please feel free to send emails or photos showing me what you have been doing.

Best wishes – I hope to hear from you soon

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 22nd June

Hello Snowies

The Leavers’ DVD is now shaping up nicely. I’ve had some fantastic films of memories and lots of brilliant photos of what you’ve been up to in lockdown. Keep them coming!

Make sure you get your ‘I’m Still Standing’ Lip Sync videos to me by 3rd July. Either email the film to me directly or use www.wetransfer.com.

I’ve allocated two lines to everyone who has said they would like to be involved and I’ve sent this out. Please let me know if you haven’t received it. Make sure you stick to the lines you’ve been allocated! We’ve finished all of the clips allocated to children in school and they’re looking good! Feel free to sing in your clip if you would like to, but you don’t have to.

A huge thank you to the PTA for the gorgeous hoodies and to our fantastic parents for organising this. Here are a couple of photos of the children in school wearing theirs.

Do feel free to prioritise transition work from your new high school. I know some of you have quite a lot to do!

Otherwise, keep going with the Oak Academy work, TT Rockstars, Rising Stars and Active Learn – whatever works well for you. I have received some really excellent pieces of writing. Please feel free to send emails or photos showing me what you have been doing.

Best wishes – I hope to hear from you soon
