Congo home learning; week beginning Monday 1st February 2021

Well done to everybody for some fantastic virtual sessions and some smashing learning. I was especially impressed with your deep thinking in history, when we considered the evidence about who built the pyramids.

Congratulations to both Chloe and William, who were our joint Superstars of the Week.

This week has been Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week, so we have been doing some activities which help us to keep chilled and relaxed.

Here is some of our great work. Well done, Congo Class!

Congo home learning: week beginning Monday 25th January 2021

Well done to all of you for your fantastic efforts learning a poem this week. I was so impressed with the way you all recited those poems; slowly, loudly and clearly!

A massive well done to Summer, who is our Superstar of the Week this week. Here is some of her beautiful work.

Congo home learning; week beginning Monday 18th January 2021

Well done for those lovely recounts you have been writing this week. By now, I think you are all expert Egyptologists, with your knowledge of Howard Carter and his amazing tomb discovery! I was really impressed with your detail and description. And it’s great to see more super sentences and some great editing.

Here is a selection of some of your work this week.



Well done, Charlotte and Martha; beautiful colour choices from Martha, and some lovely texture from Charlotte.

Great work, Charlotte and family

I love the black and white filming – it really adds to the atmosphere.  And your narration is spot-on.  It really built up the tension.  Great ending! 

Congo Class Home Learning; week beginning Monday 11th January 2021

We are really getting into our Ancient Egyptians topic this week, and seem to have learned loads! Well done for all the home learning, and especially your fantastic photos and videos of your tombs. Here are a few below.

Plus some great photos from Thomas and Liam, who discovered teddy bear hieroglyphics in their tomb!

And a big well done for some great artwork from Jacob.

Well dones for the week beginning Monday 4th January 2020!

A massive well done to all our home learners this week; we saw you ALL on our live stream, which was great. The comments from your parents have been very positive too. We love the fact that you ALL seem to be engaging with the work. Another big well done to our school learners, who have also worked their socks off.

Special well dones to the following children:

  • Callum B, for being the first person to send me some work back
  • Poppy, who wrote a really long and detailed recount on the first day
  • Amelia, who made an amazing science poster on electricity (sorry, it won’t post it here)
  • Calum R, for a great start, getting some writing and maths back to me at the start of the week
  • Oliver and Martha, for speaking confidently and clearly online
  • Charlotte, for using the comments on Google Classroom in a constructive way (to apologise when her family couldn’t make a meeting)
  • Chloe, for the neatest ever Early Work
  • Sophia, who worked enthusiastically in school all morning, then worked from home in the afternoon too.
Beautiful use of colours, Oliver
Such tidy and accurate maths, Poppy
Tidy, imaginative science, William

Week ending Friday 11th December 2020

That Christmas tree of ours is looking very beautiful now! Well done for all those lovely decorations you have made. Every one is unique and interesting.

And another well done to all the children this week, for their stamina and maturity in two assessments; reading and maths. I am so proud of them. We’ve let our hair down and partied today. Merry Christmas, everybody!

Don’t drop that balloon! Congo Class’ Christmas party

Week ending Friday 4th December 2020

Well done, Congo Class, for another great week! From Explorers Day through to making origami times tables fortune tellers, we have been so busy. And if any children seem to be experts on cats, it’s is because of a great online assembly we had from the Cats Protection League, which was so informative.

Apologies about homework, but the printer isn’t working right now. All spellings and handouts are on Google Classroom, plus the children have written details in their homework books.

Part of children’s homework is to make a decoration for it. Let’s hope we can post a jolly picture next week as, right now, it is looking a little bare. Many thanks to Autumn for being the first to bring in a bit of spare trimming!
