Hello everyone! Here are my highlights over the past few weeks...
It was my birthday! 🎈🎉 I had a lovely day in the garden and enjoyed a slice of my amazing cake!! 🎂 I have been on a few more walks and I'm still spotting rainbows that I haven't found before! 🌈 I also got a special delivery in the post - some homemade cookies from my friend and a lovely card. Can't wait to see you all soon! 😁

Hello Hagrid Class! It was lovely to speak to you all on the phone this week! I'm so glad you are all making the most of your time at home. I thought I would update you again on what I have been up to the past couple of weeks. I have been really enjoying experimenting with different recipes in the kitchen! Here are my delicious jam tarts and chicken pie! They were both AMAZING! I've also been going on a walk most days and seeing some beautiful sights near my house.
Sunday 3rd May
Hello everyone! Hope we are all still safe and happy at home!
Here are a few of my highlights from my week.
1. I was watering my garden and a rainbow appeared at the end of the water, can you see it?
2. My aunt (Mrs Smith who comes to school to read with you) sent me A Little Pocket Hug in the post. It really made me smile!
3. I created a little message for you out of stones from my garden.
Did you spot the message in our staff video?
Sunday 26th April
Hope you are all okay! We're another week closer to being reunited! 😁
I have created another collage for you to see what I've been up to this week!
I'm still keeping up with my daily walks. This weekend I went for a walk down by the river near my house. It was so peaceful. I'm feeling grateful that the weather has been sunny! ☀️
I have also spent a lot of time experimenting with recipes in the kitchen and making a lots of lovely meals. I made a Greek salad with feta cheese - which is what we were going to make in school for our Greek food DT topic. It was delicious!😋
Finally, I have started to a solve a puzzle however I am really struggling!!! It is so difficult! At least it will keep me busy - ha!!
Speak to you all soon! 😊
HAPPY EASTER HAGRID CLASS!!!

I hope you are all safe and well and enjoyed your bank holiday weekend at home! I spent my weekend doing some Easter baking and I discovered such a beautiful place on my daily walk! I can't believe it is so close to my house and I didn't know it was there!! Here is a picture collage of my weekend highlights:
I'm missing you all loads! I'm really looking forward to seeing you all again soon and hearing all of your jokes that you love to tell!!
One last thing...remember...
World Book Day!
On Thursday 5th March, we celebrated World Book Day!
We visited four different classrooms where we took part in four different activities all linked to Harry Potter! We completed lots of fun and exciting activities.
We started off with a Science activity linked to a Potions Class at Hogwarts! After this, we completed an English activity linked to different vocabulary used at Hogwarts. We then completed a maths activity linked to co-ordinates on the Marauder's Map. Finally, we completed an Art activity linked to the wonderful scenery of Hogwarts.
A fantastic World Book Day Hagrid Class! Well done!
Hagrid Class had lots of fun during Christmas Week!
Here are our lovely Christmas Cards!
Here are a few of our fantastic paintings!
On Thursday 19th December, we had our Christmas Party! Santa came to visit and we all got a present from him!
We also made some amazing calendars that we can display in our homes all year!
In RE, we recognised the celebration of Diwali. We created our own Rangoli patterns and designed Mehndi art on pictures of hands. The children's designs were brilliant and well thought out! Well done Hagrid Class.
On Thursday 26th September 2019, we celebrated Languages Day. Miss Bennett taught us 'Baby Shark' in French during assembly, which we loved!! In class, we looked at monuments around the world. We completed a fact file about 4 different monuments and then used spaghetti and midget gems to recreate the monuments.
On Wednesday 18th September 2019, Rock Steady came into school to show us their fantastic musical instruments and to tell us about the band lessons that would be taking place at our school. We looked at the electric guitar, drums, keyboard and vocals, some of us were lucky enough to have a go on them. We LOVED learning about the new instruments and sounds that they make.
