Just thought I would leave you all a quick message. I have been busy writing all of you a letter which should be in the post on its way to you! I really hope that some of you reply to me - I would love to hear how you are doing and what you have been up to. Remember to ask your parents before replying to make sure they are happy for you to send me a reply!
I have finished reading the Harry Potter books now and have started a new series. I recommend that you read the Harry Potter books if you've got any of them - they are fab! I've been keeping busy by doing work for school, reading and exercising. I try and do a workout 5 times a week at home to keep me active. I wonder if any of you have been doing any exercise? I have also been going for long walks in the evening to get out of the house.
I have added a puzzles, colouring, games and word searches section to our class page to keep you busy! There is also lots of work you can do - but don't worry, you don't have to do all of it! There is also a section where I have been uploading videos of Miss Perez teaching you Spanish. I wonder how many of you have found it? You'll all be great at speaking Spanish by the time we all come back to school!
I know that lots of you are still practising times tables at home on times tables rockstars! Would be great to see all of you give it a go. You can even challenge me to a game if you are feeling brave!
If you haven't seen it already, the staff made video for you all to enjoy. Why not check it out next time you are online.
Speak to you soon!

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. We were very lucky to be able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. I spent most of my time relaxing in the sun reading the Harry Potter books and eating too much chocolate (you know what I'm like)!
The government have decided we need to continue with our special mission of keeping the country safe. This means we need to continue to stay at home. As a result school will remain closed to the majority of you but that does NOT mean that the staff and teachers in school have stopped thinking about you all. I have not seen you all now for over 5 weeks and I can’t tell you how much I miss every single one of you. I continue to wonder how you are doing, how I can help from so far away and wonder how long it will be until I will see you at school again.
I will continue to keep adding content to the different sections on the website and I will also add the date on which the resources were added. There are loads of videos for you to watch and practical ideas to keep you busy. Well done to all of you who have already had a go at some of these activities. I really enjoyed seeing the pictures that you have been sending into school. They really put a smile on my face seeing what you have been up to. Please continue to send pictures to us so we can upload them to the school website. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Well done to those who have already logged on to Times Table Rock Star, you are doing a brilliant job, keep it up. I really hope that you’re all continuing to read every day as this is so important to every day life as an adult and it lets your imagination run wild even if you can’t leave the house. As I said, I have been diving into the magical world of Harry Potter. So far, I have read The Philosopher's Stone, The Chamber of Secrets, The Prisoner of Azkaban, The Goblet of Fire and I am now reading The Order of the Pheonix. I am definitely a Harry Potter Fan! I wonder if any of you are as well?
I will carry on thinking about you every single day. I will laugh at the funny things you have done and wonder if you are still getting better at your handwriting and what you are reading now. I can’t wait to see all your amazing rock star names on Times Table Rock Star.
Thank you to all of you for doing your part for our country and supporting our wonderful NHS. You are fabulous and are saving the lives of so many people. Just like you, people all over the world are doing amazing things for others. Like the incredible captain Tom Moore who has raised over £25,000,000 for the NHS by walking 100 laps of his garden for his 100th birthday. How amazing is that! Families all over Britain clap, shout and ring bells every Wednesday at 8pm for the wonderful NHS, I know I do and homes are being filled will the wonderful colours of rainbows to show their support. What have you done to show your support?
This is a very challenging and difficult time for everyone. So keep positive and help your family members around you. I hope you are all safe and well. Take care of yourselves and your family. I miss you all very much.
Love Miss Portsmouth x
