It is really important that you have a rest over Easter and enjoy spending time with your family, play in the sunshine and have fun!
However, if you find yourself feeling bored, I have thought of some Easter-themed activities for you to complete at home. Please do continue to send photos of your fantastic work to our class email.
I hope you all have a lovely Easter! (don’t eat too much chocolate!)
Take care, Miss Button 😊
P.S What happened to the egg after it was told a funny joke?
It CRACKED up!!!
Staying Safe Online
As I am sure you are now spending a lot more time on the internet, it is really important for us to remember how to keep safe online. In Bramble Class , we recently learnt about our online identities and how we must keep our personal details safe when playing games online. We were reminded of the importance of ALWAYS asking permission from our grown ups and what to do if we feel uncomfortable or unsure on the internet.
Follow these rules to stay SMART on the internet.
Be SMART online
Keep your personal information safe. When chatting or posting online don’t give away things like your full name, password or home address. Remember personal information can be seen in images and videos you share too. Keep them safe to keep yourself safe.
Meeting up with someone you only know online, even a friend of a friend, can be dangerous as this person is still a stranger. If someone you only know online ever asks you to meet up, for personal information or for photos/videos of you then tell an adult straight away and report them together on www.thinkuknow.co.uk
Think carefully before you click on or open something online (e.g. links, adverts, friend requests, photos) as you never know where they may lead to or they may contain viruses. Do not accept something if you are unsure of who the person is or what they’ve sent you.
You cannot trust everything you see online as some things can be out of date, inaccurate or not entirely true. To find reliable information compare at least three different websites, check in books and talk to someone about what you have found.
Tell a trusted adult if something or someone ever makes you feel upset, worried or confused. This could be if you or someone you know is being bullied online. There are lots of people who will be able to help you like teachers, parents, carers or contact Childline – 0800 11 11 or www.childline.org.uk

Hi everyone. I hope you have had a good start to the week and are enjoying the sunshine. I have recently moved into a flat next to the beach so I am really enjoying my daily walk by the sea.
Each class now has their own email address. Ours is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please do email me any pictures of work as I would love to see all the activities you are completing at home. I will be uploading some of the pictures onto our web page so you can have a look at each other's fantastic work! Grownups, please do get in touch if you have any questions/if would like some advice on how to help your child at home. I understand that the home learning process can be challenging (for everyone!) so please do let me know if I can do anything to make your life at home easier. I would also really appreciate some feedback on home learning so far to help me with future planning.
I will be checking the emails regularly during 'term time'.
Have a lovely rest of the week and I look forward to hearing from you!
Stay safe and be kind.
Miss Button :)
This half term, Bramble started to explore Plants. We were getting ready to prepare our own investigation to see what Plants need to grow which unfortunately, we now can’t do. However, you can still be scientists and carry out the investigation at home!
All you will need is a plant and the help sheets uploaded onto the website saved under Home Learning Plant Investigation. Read through the lesson power point and complete the activities. I would love to see how you get on so please take lots of pictures and send them via the school email.
Meet Bramble's Superheroes!
We use our powers to help us fight off negative feelings and overcome any challenges we may face in our learning. We understand that it is ok to fail and it is an important part of our learning journey. The most important thing is that we have a go!
On Wednesday 18th December, Bramble Class held an Africa Day! We came in to school dressed in the colours of the South African flag and learnt about the Baobab Tree: The Tree of Life. We began our day by finding out information about the iconic tree and all its incredible functions. We then presented our findings to the rest of the class. After break, we looked at ancient fables that tell the story of why the Baobab tree has its unique look and created our own version. We enjoyed acting out our fable! Later on in our day, we designed and created our own 'Tree of Life'. We had to think carefully about our design and ensure that each part of the tree had a function that can help people living in Africa. All 23 children in Bramble class told Miss Button a fact about the Baobab tree at the end of the day!
