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:

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

Mrs Roberts

Lockdown Stories – Penguin in Peril

Good afternoon everyone. Here’s the third of our lockdown stories – this time from the school library. This is ‘Penguin in Peril’ by Helen Hancocks. I hope you enjoy it!

Lockdown Stories – The Way Home for Wolf

This week’s story is The Way Home for Wolf – another one by Rachel Bright and Jim Field. Can you see any similarities between this and The Lion Inside? I think the illustrations in this book are beautiful. I hope you enjoy it!

Blue Peter Badge

Why not earn yourself a Blue Peter badge this lockdown? I’ve put the link below for you to have a look at which badge you think you could earn. I’d recommend having a go at the sports badge – your task is to learn a new sport!

Snowy Owls – Week beginning 11th June

Good Morning, Snowies!

Thank you so much to those of you who have been sending your work from the Oak Academy. I’ve seen some fantastic pieces.

I’m currently phoning everyone’s parents/carers to find out how you are getting on. If you haven’t heard from me yet, you should do soon.

I have sent everyone two emails this week – one with some ideas about how you could contribute to the leavers’ DVD and another with the backing track and lyrics for ‘I’m Still Standing’. Please let me know if you have not received both of these.

Apart from the Oak Academy lessons, I’m not going to set any more work – I would like you all to concentrate on your contributions to the leavers’ DVD.

Best wishes – I hope to hear from you soon

Lockdown Stories – The Lion Inside

Because some of our children are in school and others are at home, we wanted something we could all share together. Each week for the rest of lockdown we’ll upload a new story, read from somewhere in school, so you can feel like you’re with us even if you’re not. Our first story is at The Lion Inside by Rachel Bright, illustrated by Jim Field. Enjoy!
