During this period of lock down, all children in Years 5 and 6 will now be able to access the Burnet News Club Hub. This is a safe, fully-moderated learning space where children can engage with others around the country. Right now, students can take two new quizzes, read answers from NHS experts, try activities from Sessions 1-6 on this term's issue: 'The Future of Healthcare,' watch video diaries from the BNC team, share their lock-down experiences and more. To gain access to the resources on the site, your child will need a username and login. If you would like your child to have the opportunity to engage with the hub, please email the UKS2 email address to request a login.
Messages From Your Teacher
Hello to all Year 5 and 6 children, we have really missed not being at school with you over the last week. We hope that you are all keeping well and busy with lots of home learning activities from our home learning timetable. We have been keeping an eye on the Accelerated Reader and TT Rockstars sites and we are very impressed with some of the word counts and quizzes being taken - keep up the good work! Don't forget that you can share any of your work with us or send us a message via firstname.lastname@example.org - it would be lovely to hear from you. Mrs Hofer wanted to let you all know that there are lots of exciting resources all about space at https://thestemhub.org.uk/index.php/stem-at-home - and don't forget, for those of you with Burnet News logins, the site is still live and contains lots of interesting articles, quizzes and games for you to access. Also remember to have a look at the bird box via http://www.seenature.org.uk/ - the birds have been really busy and looks like they are getting ready to lay their eggs. Finally, remember to keep yourself as active as you can, maybe you have been practising your skipping ( I have! ) or tuning into Joe Wicks via the website on our home learning. Sending you all lots of good wishes and hoping we will be seeing you all soon.

I hope you are all safe and well. I have really enjoyed the wonderful pictures and excellent work you have been sending in via email or Twitter. It looks like you have been extremely busy making some wonderful home learning. I really miss you all and I cannot wait for everything to be back to normal so I can see you all again! I have been keeping myself busy by planning some lessons and I have started to do some painting at home. My aim this week is to make a colour wheel Pizza! I will share this via Twitter or on here. Keep an eye on the BWPSarts Twitter page as I will be sharing art activities most days and would love to see some of you take part. There are a lot of you in 5/6 who are extremely talented and artistic so it would be great to see your work! I am feeling incredibly proud of you all and we cannot wait to see you all again. Please make sure you relax in this time and keep safe! Remember to use TTrockstars, Accelerated reading and MyOn daily and keep sharing all the amazing work you are doing.
See you soon and stay safe!
