Week 3 (wk beg. 20.04.2020)

Dear Class 4,

I hope you've enjoyed the past two weeks with no school work! Hopefully you've got out a bit and enjoyed the sunshine. I certainly have. We're lucky to live very close to Colby Glen, which is a lovely place to walk, and I cycled down to the sea at Gansey last week. There were tiny day-old ducklings by the bridge just before the river runs into the sea! The seeds I planted are growing really well too and I've also been doing a bit of writing, but I've been working on my poems and still need to finish my Cat story for you. I'll do it this week!

I've been getting quite excited making plans for this term. It's all a bit different from usual, but it's great that Habitats is our science topic as you can all get out and do lots of learning in your garden, and I've been reading about Oceania and getting excited about that too! To read the same books I've been reading mum or dad will need to agree that I can register you on the Epic Books site with mum or dad's email, so if they are happy about that, please ask them to email me as soon as possible so I can get you registered.

I think that's all for now. I look forward to hearing back from you via ItsLearning or by good old-fashioned letter!

Love from

Mrs Shirtliff

Dear Parents,

Thank you so much for all that you are doing! I have tried to keep things as simple as possible, but please let me know if it's not. By now you have probably settled into a weekday routine. I just have one almost-16 year old left at home, and our pattern is to do school work 9.30am - 11am, take a break, then work again 11.30 - 1pm. The afternoon is for tasks that need doing: dog walk, music practice, baking or cooking tea. The rest of the day is his own, and we'll maybe watch some TV together or play a game in the evening. I'd be interested in hearing the routines that work for you, and the tasks that your children most enjoy doing, or any games you'd recommend!

On the parent Forecast I promised a P4C question each week, and then I realised that Mrs Moyer is putting up P4C Home Talks each week, so please use that. It looks really good, and I am enjoying the videos in particular.

In order to read the books I've recommended for the topic work I need to register your child along with your email on the Epic Books site. Take a look and if you're happy for me to register your child for free access, please send me your email address( to

Hope you have a good week. Thanks again for all you're doing. Don't worry if you don't get everything done. Don't worry if you don't get anything done! But it's there if you want to use it,

Best wishes,

Jacqueline Shirtlif

Week 2 (wk beg. 30.3.2020)

Good morning everyone, and welcome to a new week. I hope you're enjoying working from home (apart from you, Graihagh - looking forward to seeing you at St John's next week!). I am enjoying working at home, but I am missing seeing you folks. Can't wait until we can all be back in the classroom together. :) This week I've sent you an example of the 'Something I Really Want But Can't Have' story that I wrote. I'm afraid I was enjoying writing it and got a bit carried away, so it's quite long. Sorry about that - yours doesn't have to be that long! Anyway, enjoy being at home with your family, and I look forward to hearing all your news when I see you again, and about all the inventive things you and your families have found to keep you busy at home. Love from Mrs Shirtliff
