I have been reading a book by Max Brooks called The Island. It is a novel about someone who wakes up on an island with no memory of who he is. He uses what is on the island to survive and finds out that the island is the top of a mountain in a world that has been completely flooded. It is a very good book from an amazing author.

Hi I hope everyone's ok
I've recently read a new book called 'there's a yeti in the playground' and it is very good. Also, can you do some riddles, I really liked them last time. : )

Hello everyone,
I hope you had a nice weekend. I didn't do much at the weekend because of the bad weather and whenever I wanted to go for a walk, it started raining! I tried making bread at the weekend but we put it in the oven and forgot about it so it turned out more like a brick!

Hey everybody!
I didn't get out much over the weekend due to the weather being not the best. I had a Sunday Roast which was my meal for DT, it was delicious! We also made scones (again) and had them for our pudding. I am excited for the next zoom lesson and can't wait to see everybody again. Have a good week! :D

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all keeping safe and well. Over the weekend I have been for a walk with my Mum and Dad. On Saturday, me and my Dad went for a walk the weather was ok but when we got 5 minutes away from home we got soaked because it started to rain. On Sunday, I had a movie afternoon with my Mum and we watched the funniest (in my opinion) film Paddington. Last week my favourite piece of work was doing the Food Technology work and learning about Volcanoes in Geography. I am still on the series of Girl Online books and because it was raining over the weekend I finished off the first book, finished the second book and now I am starting the last book. It is an amazing series. Have a great week!

Hi,
I have started a new book called 'The 1000 year old boy'. I was going to do a stop motion animation about Fortnite with my brother, but that didn't go very well. We ended up sticking Fortnite character heads to these sticky men things but then we argued about whether the football skin should go on its own or with the grandpa. My bedroom now has a new layout with the furniture and cupboards and beds and stuff moved around. I got an 8x8 Rubik's cube and I am learning how to solve it. I am almost certain I will be able to, but I'm not completely sure. Our badminton net is up in the garden and I played a bit of badminton. Me and my mum got 56 hits in a rally. I learnt that squash was hitting a ball really hard at a wall, and bouncing it off in special ways. I never new anything about what squash was, apart from what the rackets look like. I might have a go at playing it when squash courts are open.
Bye

Hi everybody!

Thank you for blogging this morning.

Ben - What a shame! But who needs bread when you can make fancy fishcakes!?

Ruby - That sounds like an interesting book. What have you been baking?

Ethan - Making a Sunday roast is very impressive. There's always a lot to do! Did it go down well with your family?

Daisy - I am glad you are getting so much reading done! Typical that you got soaked so close to home. I haven't seen Paddington but I HAVE seen Paddington 2... it made me cry! Maybe I should watch the first one...

Max - Lucky you with your pizza oven! I would love one of those. What toppings did you go for? Happy birthday to Jamie!

Evan - I am missing the warm weather too. What a shame that it hasn't been nice now that we are allowed to socially distance outside! I'm so glad you are enjoying your work. See you on Zoom!

Matthew - I like that book so let me know what you think. That's a very impressive rally. I love badminton but squash is a bit fast-paced for me. I'm sure you would be great at it though. Definitely something to try once the courts re-open!

Hi everyone,
This weekend It was my cousins birthday so we went to her driveway for a few minutes and stayed in the car because it was raining. Other than that we have had quite a quiet weekend because of the weather. My Mum and Dad taught me and my brother how to play the game of life and it was a lot of fun. I have now finished Mr.Stink and as soon as I finished it I decided to watch the movie (I think the movie was a bit better than the book).
I am now reading the boy in the dress by David Walliams and its a really good book so far.
I hope everyone is doing well and staying safe.

Hello everyone. Hope you are okay. Just to tell you, that I have a good week and I was pretty busy. Every morning, as usual my dad came home from work and went to sleep, so I was doing on my own my daily Maths and English. Later, when he woke up we were doing together the other tasks, such as the water clock, digital painting, One-Pan fabulous Fish dish and music research. Also I have been spending time going on a walk with my dog and reading my book. Hope you have a nice week too bye.

Hi Filip,
It sounds like you have a good system going there. Doing your maths and English by yourself and then the other bits and bobs with your dad. It is great to see so many of you sharing so much of your work with your family. Well done!

Hi Isobel,

Mrs Miller will be impressed that you have been doing additional French at home - well done!

Posting letters to your buddy is a lovely idea.

Hello everyone! I have loved reading most of the David Walliams books. I have read 7 so far, my favourite was Awful Auntie. My favourite author though is Michael Morpurgo, I have read lots of his books at school. My mum has order me 12 of his books from Amazon which are coming tomorrow, I am looking forward to reading them. I am still working hard in timetable rock stars and the other maths given. But in my spare time after school work I have been playing football and also teaching my sister how to play too.We have also been watching films such as Harry Potter and moana (my sisters favourite movie).We have also been busy making treats in the kitchen like marshmallow and chocolate pretzels. But as my sister has got some new shoes that finally fit her have came we have been taking her on short walks and sometimes we even let her go on her own (if she is confident). Anyways hope you are all well and are safe. From Owen

Hi every one. I have been enjoying reading the David Walliams books. I have read 6 so far. My favourite was the midnight gang. I loved all the adventures they had at night time. I am waiting for my new David Walliams books to arrive. I have been busy with work, my favourite part last week was the science, I made a little book of facts about Mars, and loved telling my family everything I found out. I have been teaching my sister how to play hide and seek.she is getting really good at finding me now. And I have also been teaching my sister how to play football and I have been practising times tabel rock stars. And I know all of my 9s and 12s times tabels.

Hi Owen,

I am sorry about the science sheet. I have changed it now so all the words can be seen. Thank you for letting Miss Merson and I know.

Owen - You can't beat a delivery of new books! I would be sat waiting and looking out of the window all day! How is Ella's football coming on? She is probably already better than me!

Hayden - That is fantastic news about your times tables. Well done! Ella is so lucky to have her big brothers at home to play with. I am really glad you learnt a lot about Mars. I find learning about space fascinating.

Jake - How are you finding cycling when the weather isn't so sunny? You must be quite a pro by now! I wish I had that much confidence on a bike!

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all ok and are having a good week. On the Geography work the article we are supposed to read the link works but when it goes onto the page it says β€˜link 404 error’. Should I just miss out the article bit?

Miss Merson wrote:

Hi Daisy,
How unusual - both of the links have worked for me! I would suggest just going onto Task 2 and researching your own volcano. Or you could Google '13 volcanoes that could erupt at any time' and just follow the first link.
Enjoy!
