I am reading The Shapshifter Series at the moment. I finished the first one yesterday and I am now moving onto the second. Hope you are all enjoying the nice weather and enjoy the half term!

P.S. Why no brainteasers?

Hi everyone,
I hope you are all ok. This weekend I have enjoyed baking a batch of fork biscuits (Mary Berries recipe). I made them on Saturday. Me and my Mum ended up eating them all and finished them off last night!!! My favourite piece of work last week was making my spaghetti bridge, for my D&T work, which was a challenge but really fun. This week I am looking forward to the Food & Technology lesson (D&T work) especially making a balanced meal.
I hope everyone has a great week πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

It is lovely to hear about everything that you have been up to over the past few days. I like finding out what everyone is reading too, so keep blogging to let Miss Merson and I know.

Nathan - I will be completely honest. I forgot the brainteasers this week. Because you are really enjoying them, I will add some to this blog shortly.

Ben - Maybe you could bring your guitar to the next zoom meeting and show off your skills?

I have already done 5 sessions of work and it is 11:45. This is part of my 6th session. I am on to the deathly hallows part two Harry Potter film (on this round of watching harry potter films). I am going to probably order a 6x6 rubiks cube and maybe a 7x7 and 8x8 and 9x9 but im not sure. Ive been to Marbury Park and had a picnic (we were the only ones in the field we picked for most of the time). We brought lots of frisbee and football type of games and things.

Hannah - Wow! What did you make for your Japanese meal? I'm already very impressed!

Ruby - I bet your nan will love that. I need to get some plants for my garden too. Do you enjoy gardening?

Evan - Aw what a shame... where were you meant to be going? Hopefully you can go later in the year or next year.

Lauren - That one's my favourite :) Who is your favourite character?

Ben - What new songs did you learn? I played a bit of piano for some of my family on Zoom too but they didn't seem very impressed with my version of Mary Had A Little Lamb :(

Daisy - Oooh what are fork biscuits?! They sound delicious. One perk of lockdown is that when you do bake you don't have to share!

Max - Hopefully by the time we come back to school you will be able to land a kick flip!

Matthew - I went to Marbury Park at the weekend too! Did you enjoy getting out of the house? Try not to rush your work but if you are finding that you finish early then remember you can access the Home Learning page and do any of the other activities on there - or even recap some Year 5 work! (You don't have to do this, I am just thinking of your options if you get bored!)

Ethan - You were very excitable on our last Zoom! What shape were the scones? I hope you all keep up with the baking when you are back to school and that I can get lots of tasty deliveries!

Thank you to everyone for keeping in touch with us! Has anyone had a good 'lockdown birthday'? I am trying to think of some good ideas for Eden's birthday on Saturday.

Have a lovely week everybody! See you on Zoom 6M.

Hi Jessica,

You could use tin foil, as it's shiny like a mirror. I hope this helps!

William - I am pleased to hear that William.

Georgia - I like the sound of cake making and walking.

Owen - Wow! I am really impressed with your times tables. This is great news. The cookies sound delicious. What meal are you planning?

Izzy - This sounds lovely. I like Brereton; it's a really nice place.

Daisy - You're not wrong. These are all correct! Well done. I think the questions were tricky this week!

Ellie - Aw how lovely! You must have made the bird feel very safe. Have you been able to see the baby birds at all?

Jake - What an impressive bike ride! I don't think I could go that far. This has been a great time to explore lots of new local areas hasn't it?

Georgia - Delicious! You are all going to be so great at baking by the end of this!

Owen - Wow you are super busy! You and Daisy seem to be in stiff competition for that top spot on TTR! What is your murder mystery book called?

Daisy - Those are the answers I thought too! I love the Mickey Mouse one especially.

Hi Aimee,

You will have to keep me updated about the growth of the cress. I am pleased to hear you are reading. I hope you are reading each day. The vegetable risotto sounds lovely!

Hello.
This week I have done most of the English and all of the Maths. I spotted an error in question 36 in this week's arithmetic test. In my opinion the answer should be 10 not 1/10.
Tomorrow I will do my periscope and History homework.
Have a great week.

The science didn't work because the tinfoil was useless and didn't reflect anything apart from a few blurry shapes. If I had a mirror, then it would've worked because in the cereal box I was using there was two openings opposite to each other so when you looked in you would have seen a mirror which was reflecting another mirror which was reflecting out of the other hole.

Filip - I have had a look at the arithmetic paper and you are completely right. Well done. Enjoy making your periscope!

Owen - Wow! This is fantastic. Well done for doing so well with your times tables.

Jessica - Oh that's a shame. Keep your periscope and we can add mirrors later.
